Procedure
Maddox the Slayer.png
  • Clearance: Go to your <.minecraft directory>/assets folder and delete the "skins" folder inside of it
  • Preparation: Open Minecraft, go to the loading zone right before the item you want. Re-delete the skins folder to minimize the number of unwanted items
  • Load the Entity: Load the item, then log out right away to prevent getting extra skins; You should now have a bunch of files in your skins folder
  • Search for the File: Append the ".png" file extension to each file to view them (a mass file rename tool can be useful); Find the one you want

NPC Skin Download

Usage
  • Search for the NPC you want and click on it
  • Download and use the NPC skin

Item and Block Renderer

  • Shift+` - renders in smaller resolution
  • Control+` - renders all the resources of the mod that the item belongs to
  • Renders are stored in <.minecraft directory>/renders or <.minecraft directory>/Versions/<Your Version>/renders

Enchanted Item Versions

Since screenshots end up with an inconsistent item glint, enchantment glint is applied to a render of the unenchanted form with an image editing software. To begin, you should download either Photoshop or GIMP as your image editing software, and one of the Glint Toolkit ZIP.

Download Glint Toolkit ZIP Files
Procedure
Obsidian.png
Enchanted Obsidian.png
  • Get Source: Take an unenchanted render with BlockRenderer, or a high-detailed render from Minecraft wiki or from Minecraft texture files.
  • Resize Image: Resize an item render to either 150px or 512px. Resize a block render to either 300px or 512px.
  • Launch Software: Open the corresponding PSD or XCF file from the Glint Toolkit. (Note that items and blocks uses different files. Notice the prefix Ench_Item and Block)
  • Apply Glint: Paste the source image into the software as a layer and remove the existing block/item used for demo. (Note: With Photoshop, make sure the glint layer(s) are clipped down to the layer of the block or item. Click here for a video tutorial.)
  • Generate Image: Export the result in PNG format.

Note: When trying to render blocks with irregular shapes, like for example stairs, the file has to be modified to accommodate its shape.

  • To get a render of a player head: (Note: This method can only apply to player heads)
    1. Right click on the player head and click "Inspect (Element)"
    2. The selected element should be of <div class="piece-hover-area"...
    3. Look for the NEXT ONE OR TWO element. If it is of usable form, take the TEXTURE ID and render it with Head Renderer
    4. If it is of other forms, unfortunately the item cannot be rendered

> USABLE FORM
<div class="piece-icon..." style="background-image: url("/head/LOTS OF NUMBER AND LETTERS (TEXTURE ID)")"...
> NON-USABLE FORMS
<div class="piece-icon..." style="background-image: url("/resourcepack/...
<div class="piece-icon..." style="background-image: url("data:image/png;base64,...

  • Please note that, because of the texture and glint changes, the images on the site should never be directly downloaded and used

Decoder

Note: This method is depreciated. Please use Head Renderer.

Base64decode (Website) - Decodes a Base64 encoded string such as a Texture Value.

Procedure
  • First, obtain NBT Data (Wikitools) or NBT Data (SkyBlock Addons). Here an example NBT Data:

{... { "textures": [{ "Value": "eyJ0aW1lc3RhbXAiOjE1MjM1MzYyNDI5NDMsInByb2ZpbGVJZCI6IjQxZDNhYmMyZDc0OTQwMGM5MDkwZDU0MzRkMDM4MzFiIiwicHJvZmlsZU5hbWUiOiJNZWdha2xvb24iLCJzaWduYXR1cmVSZXF1aXJlZCI6dHJ1ZSwidGV4dHVyZXMiOnsiU0tJTiI6eyJ1cmwiOiJodHRwOi8vdGV4dHVyZXMubWluZWNyYWZ0Lm5ldC90ZXh0dXJlLzU3NTFiMmMzMTFhY2Q0OGUwNmY3MTUwOGM2ODczNWZlOWYzYTRmNGQ3NWI5ZWYxYTI0ZmExMzMzZDc3In19fQ==" }] }, ...}

  • Putting the "Value" bit without the equal signs into the website, we can decode it as:

{"timestamp":1523536242943,"profileId":"41d3abc2d749400c9090d5434d03831b","profileName":"Megakloon","signatureRequired":true,"textures":{"SKIN":{"url":"http://textures.minecraft.net/texture/5751b2c311acd48e06f71508c68735fe9f3a4f4d75b9ef1a24fa1333d77"}}}

  • Thus, the URL can be found, along with the texture ID:

Texture Id: 5751b2c311acd48e06f71508c68735fe9f3a4f4d75b9ef1a24fa1333d77
