Minecraft Explorer/Skin Studio Ideas

We want to make our app even more useful and we believe the best way to do that is to ask you guys! If you have an awesome idea, be sure to share it below. Or simply vote for your favorite idea below with your points.

If we see an awesome idea and lots of people have voted, if feasible, we may implement that idea in the near future.

(!!) Please do not suggest ideas for the actual Minecraft game here. You should do that at minecraftforums.net or via the other official Mojang channels.(!!)

The legal stuff:
All ideas/suggestions submitted via this website or via email automatically become the property of 57Digital Ltd. 57Digital Ltd shall receive exclusive unrestricted rights to any ideas suggested by our users. Contributors shall not receive attribution, credit or reward(s) for any submissions. Please do not submit any suggestions if you do not agree.

How can we improve our apps?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Make a chat room and request room for everybody's profiles so we won't have to make chat and request skins.

    Once you view someone's skins there is a tab at the top of the list of their skins that says chat and another one that says requests. If you click on it you can chat or post requests for that user. You can also disable chat and/or requests for your profile in the settings.

      • Home cutting machines?

        Would be really cool if you could send the file to a home cutting machine like the Cricut. So tedious doing all that cutting by hand... and of course downloading to a 3d printer would be so awesome!

        • Redstone

          Under the tools section of the app, I think it would be awesome if there was a Redstone option, that includes traps, Coll things you can do with redstone, etc. A lot of people would like to see this on the app so they can build their own traps, etc. Please think about putting this on Minecraft Explorer.

          • Render a nice picture of you're skin with customizable background

            as said.
            i'm dreaming of such a function e.g. for the new 3D preview.
            loading own background or use one from the gallery (skin studio will come fully equipped with some awesome examples) or choose one from the community picks.
            yeah, awesome

                          • Label how much the upgrades cost.

                            I am interested in the upgrades that MSS has. But unfortunately I don't know if I want to get them as it does not state the cost of them.

                                Since Technic/Tekkit is a mod pack, it adds a LOT of new stuff, so we wouldn’t be able to add everything from it into the app since it would just be too much!

                                However, we are potentially thinking of adding a Guides section in the future. Also, we may potentially feature certain mods, and we’ll make an announcement if/when these are added.

                                Thanks for your suggestion!

                                • Review grammar throughout the app and add the levels on which ores are most common

                                  I have noticed several grammatical errors while using the app and I would very much like for it to be fixed in the next update. I am also disappointed this app doesn't include the "y" level on which each ore is most common. I always have to go to the wiki page for this and would like to have everything in one place. This app truly is wonderful, I just thought these things would make it better. Thanks! <3

                                    Hi Devin,

                                    We strive to have as few errors as possible within Minecraft Explorer, but since there are so many items/blocks/etc., some (particularly ones that have been in the game a long time) were written and haven’t been checked for mistakes since then by our grammar expert Content Producer! As you can imagine, to go through every page would take a long time!

                                    As for the ore depths, that is a somewhat glaring omission that we will try and resolve as soon as we can! Thanks again!
