When playing on Minecraft servers, one of the most common ways for players to express themselves is with the use of skins. Skins are the perfect way to add customization to Minecraft characters. While these are great, when running an offline server, or ‘cracked’ Minecraft server, skins can be disabled. This problem can occur because cracked servers do not authenticate with the Mojang skin servers. Although it’s upsetting to lose character skins, it is not impossible to enable them! This will be a brief guide on how to restore the skins for you and your players. The bread and butter of this guide will be utilizing a plugin called SkinRestorer, which is approved for all versions 1.8 and above, including 1.16!

Skin not updating
If you’ve put in the proper commands and the skin does not immediately change, you should disconnect and then reconnect to the server. If that still does not work, you should check the name of the skin you’re trying to snag and ensure it’s spelled correctly.
SkinRestorer has a bunch of other features as well that you can implement to your server, such as denying users from using certain skins or allowing them to swap skins on the fly while playing. You can even change other users’ skins. Configuration of the files allows you to change the language, color codes, and more of the actual commands. Well, that’s everything! I hoped this guide has helped you fix a somewhat common issue. Until next time!
