These new models boast 3 pixel wide arms and may be purely optional.
Mojang’s Minecraft has forever been defined by its blocky, stocky player models – regardless of which skin they donned – and it’s fit in with the overall tone of the game world. There could be a bit of a slimming down for characters in the near future, according to programmer and designer Jens Bergensten on Twitter.
Bergensten posted images on Twitter which showed side-by-side comparisons of the original model and the slimmer versions (whose arms are three pixels wide). Bergensten said that the models could be a “possible feature for the future” but it seems they will be optional rather than replacing the current scheme.
