    Plugin category: Cosmetics ig

    Minecraft version: 1.15.2

    Suggested name: "Weapon Wraps" maybe idk

    What I want: My request may be a bit challenging because I don't really know the ins and outs of coding these plugins. But essentially, I want a plugin that allows players to open up a GUI or type a command that applies a cool "skin" or "wrap" on their items. Kinda like how in various FPS games, players can buy weapon wraps to make their weapons look cooler. Im fine with just wraps for pickaxes and swords for now if a Dev wants to just try it out first. I imagine theres gonna need to be a custom resource pack to go along with the plugin, and Id be happy to make one, but I j need to know how to make multiple weapons in the same resource pack folder so I can create different designs. I predict that I am going to be talking with the Dev that may decide to accept this challenging plug in to see what they can do and what they cant as far as limitations go. If anyone has any suggestions at all, I check this forum often so ill be more than happy to respond and show thanks.

    Ideas for commands: idk maybe like, /wraps apply [player], to like the item in their hand. this is up for the dev to decide honestly idc

    Ideas for permissions: like a perm that I can give to players that allows them to access the GUI
    When I'd like it by: As Soon As Possible :D thanks

    As i remember changing an item texture is not possible without a texture pack since plugins are only server sided and you are gonna need a forge server,get a custom made mod and make the players install that mod.

    Someone correct me if i am wrong.

    this is correct afaik.
    however there are a few cosmetic things you *could* change if you're willing to sacrifice the "wrap" idea:
    • item name colors
    • loretext (hover description)
    • enchanted 'look' for items that aren't enchanted
    • projectiles (arrows, snowballs, etc) changed to look like another in-game item (newer minecraft versions only)
    • abusing protocollib to lie to the client about the item type to make it appear like a different in-game item clientside.
    Note: an exception being that you can select an existing skin-url for head items (applied through their Profile API or Authlib depending on server type), but I assume you don't want all your weapons to look like blocks.

    is there a way I can make a texture pack with multiple (diamond) swords with different textures and then have the server auto apply the texture pack to the player when they join the game?
