Skin Statue Builder

Ever been too lazy to build the statue of your best builder of the server? Or do you just want some great let's player as a big statue on your server, but can't seem to remember how he looks like? This plugin is just for you! It downloads the skin of the desired player and "converts" it into a big statue out of blocks! Be aware, that it won't work every time perfectly, the colors may not match the real ones (read the "how it works" section and you'll understand, why).

How it works

  1. Downloads the skin of the player (.png image file)
  2. reads every pixel of the converted png and calculates the coordinates relative to your current position.
  3. builds the blocks in the direction you are looking

If the plugin doesn't find a color, a white wool block will appear instead.

Additional Information

/skin smooth has a magic effect on many skins, as it adds human skin with wood (birch) and finishes the skin. Use it after you built a skin with /skin [name].

Of course this only works for premium accounts.

There's also an auto-updater included which you can turn off in the config. I don't recommend that though ;)


This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

Have fun! :)
