I liked the Steve skin, but then the default skin was set to Alex. I don't mind Alex, but I want my default set back to Steve. When opening the MC launcher, I changed the skin to the Steve skin file that is in the MC assets folder. This gave me the Steve skin, but it treated the Steve skin like a downloaded skin, not a default. The problem with this? It didn't work with texture/resource packs. For example, I have a Gravity Falls pack that changes Steve to Dipper Pines. But when I have the Steve on, it won't change to Dipper!! Any advice?
This will change the skin for your Minecraft account. You can change your player model between Steve and Alex in two ways:
Minecraft Launcher (NEW LAUNCHER ONLY)
Go to the "Skins" tab and click the classic model. Upload your skin by pressing the "BROWSE" button and click the "SAVE" button. NOTE: Classic is Steve and Slim is Alex.
Go to your profile page on Minecraft.net and set the first dropdown box to "Classic (Steve)". You can get the default Steve skin by clicking on "Reset skin" and upload another skin if you choose too later on.
Woops... Just found it out myself... Apparently you can't change your default, because it's randomly decided based on your account ID...
