Default How to change a non-default skin to default?
Hi, I found a non-default skin that I like, but I want it as my default. Is there anyway to do this? And if so, if it is complicated, can somebody help me with it XD

Thanks!

You have to change the Instance IDs to the default instance IDs - I guess the best way would be to extract all the skin tones, get a list of default instance IDs, change the file names, and import into a new package.

Conversion to and from default might be a nice add-on for the next version of Skininator.

Open the .package in S3PE, and extract all the resources marked _IMG (tick Tags at the bottom of the window if you don't see _IMG anywhere). Then follow a tutorial on making non-default skins, using the textures you extracted.

Wouldn't using Skininator be the easiest route? Or does that only do default to non-default?

As far as I know, the conversion feature never made it into Skininator. I only did a quick glance over the changelog, though.

Actually the conversion feature has been in Skininator for a while, but it's not clearly labelled as such. You have to extract the non-default skintone package(s) into a temporary folder with the Extractinator menu option which will load the files into the program in the proper slots, then save as a default package.
