Face Expression


The player now has his own face! It has the following features that can be configured inside the configuration file in .minecraft/config/AnimatedPlayer.cfg:

  • Moving eyes depending on where the player is looking.
  • Opening mouth that simulates a breathing animation.
  • Eyebrows that become sad when hungry and confident (and angry) when energy-replenished!


Animated Player Mod

Hats now render each pixel individually to make it look better! This can be toggled in the config file. (Still a bit buggy)
