Important Critical More Player Models, texturepack, and Optifine, get it!

2 replies
Alright ladies and gents, the day has come where optifine will now run with More Player Models and i'm going to walk you all through installing it. Before we start I would recommend a clean version of minecraft.

Step one, install forge 1.12.1 here. Download and run the installer for client. Once you have done this, open the minecraft launcher and edit your profile. Change the "Use version" and scroll down until you see forge 1.12.1, select it and save your profile. After this launch minecraft once to make sure forge is set up properly.

Step two, download More Player Models here. Then download Optfine 1.12.1 here, there have been reports of some versions of Optifine causing crashes, if that occurs download one of the alternate versions they have listed for 1.12.1. Once both are downloaded, open your minecraft directory (DO NOT RUN THEIR INSTALLERS). This can be found by opening any folder on your computer and typing %appdata% in the directory bar at the top and hitting enter. You should see a .minecraft folder, open that folder and locate your mods folder, if there is not a mods folder then create one. Once you find your mods folder drop both jar files for More Player Models and Optifine in this folder and launch minecraft with your forge profile. You're done!

As for the resource pack, just download it from here then activate it in your resource pack menu.

(Please only use the provided links or the mods may not function together. If a link breaks please inform staff)

More Player Models Hight Guide

1 Block=32px=3'2"
Steve=1.85 Blocks or 60px or 6'

The following % must be applied to the Head, Torso, and Leg Hights

64px 105%=6'4" [This is 2 blocks high]

use these as a reference as the above instructions will squich your head, have someone stand next to you with the hight you need to work out what you want

Note: Apologies for necro-posting on this thread, but I thought I'd share a (mostly) accurate method on figuring out your character height using ratios! (I was also told to post it here, so here it goes.) I learned this method from another server, in which I shared it to another server, and am thus sharing it here as well. Rather than eyeballing heights, which I have noticed many people do, keeping to an actual system can help further immerse roleplay, seeing as many players have the mod already installed!

Figuring out the percentages for MPM and how they correlate to real life height has left many confused. Many people tend to "guess" the settings and roll with it, but often times this leads to conflicts over heights. However, fear not, for there is indeed an easy way to calculate your character's height with RATIOS!

To aid these simple conversions, you can use this online calculator:
(( ))

Setting Up the Calculator

Step 1: Set field "A" to 100, which represents the default percentage that MPM sets the basic Steve model at.

Step 2: Set field "B" to 72. This number represents the default height of Steve, which is said to be roughly at 72 inches, or, 6 ft.

Step 3: Leave field "C" blank for now! This will be the result after entering your character's height in field "D". As for setting up field "D", place in your character's height in inches here. For example, say Alice stands at 5'4", which would be 64 inches. Put "64" in "D".
(( You can easily convert from feet to inches by multiplying the number of feet by 12 and then adding the inches. For example, 5' x 12 = 60 + 4" = 64" ))

Step 4: Click on "Calculate" and see your appropriate ratio! This will likely be a repeating decimal, so simply round to the nearest whole number. 64" will be represented as 88.888888888889, or 89.

Step 5: For my MPM percentages, I will set the sliders to 89% and adjust the width and depth accordingly to my character's build and stature! The height, however, I will keep at a consistent 89%! Save your settings and you're all done!
(if you can mix it around to make your torso stocky and your legs long, go for it; it's much easier to eyeball with the reference made from the ratio calculator!)

That's all to it!
In conclusion, hopefully these ratios with MPM can greater influence the visual representation of our Minecraft characters. Dwarves can be properly stocky and orcs can stand brutishly tall! Have fun with your conversions!
- The shortest height with these ratios is 3 ft, with the tallest being 9 ft. All races are usually within this range.
