Terrablox isnt another minecraft clone, its a creativity game made by Jack Oatley, about building in world made of blocks. Its part of building games, and being inspired by the game Minecraft. The game is in high, infinite developement state and made on Game Maker so there can be bugs and release date is delayed. Every update gives more fixes and changes. It doesnt have crafting, large terrain but it has great gameplay, fun, and graphics and mostly performance. It also gives you texture pack, and skin change possibilities (currently supports 64x64!) Enyoy this game as it is now, and be active check logs everyday!

Basic Skinning.

I just throught to make my own tutorial, so people will know where to start modding this game. I dont expect many views on this, basicly if you play minecraft its the same, only that parts are placed diffrently. If you look up at image you can see where parts are placed, and if you look at pages banner you will see how big player is.

I grouped tutorial to parts:

STEP ONE
Firstly you will have to look up at image at top (you can save it on your folder) and open up paint (or other programs you use. I actually use Game Makers sprite editing its easy and can be pixelized)
STEP TWO
Go to your terrablox folder and open up "mods" folder. There will be "skins" folder, open it up.
The skin called "terraboy" (or called default) will show up. Open it with your program.
Now choose the painting tool you will use and paint up the player as you like.
STEP THREE
Once you have done your skin save it as "terminatorboy" or as you like to call it. Save it as same dimension.
STEP FOUR
Launch terrablox and click "mods" it should show you three lines with pointed folders.
Click change on "skin" line and it will show you the window. Now go to the same folder you saved skin and double click on it to choose. The lines last word should change to something like that: "skins/terminatorboy.png"

TIPS
• If you want to see your skin from side (third person view or other persons) click f2 in-game and you will see the player. Click once more to see from other views.
• You can also download skins from internet if youre lazy to paint it, but also you can share your own skin so people can download and use them too!
•If you would accidentally delete terraboy skin (or all skins) dont worry game has coded backup inside it so it will turn into default, even without skin or folder.
•Since game doesnt have such black thing as minecraft so i you will gonna make your skin only to have eyes and no body it will became invisible man with eyes, or a ghost! This has something more to do with...
•Try shading the player.. it will look better!
