Client Mods[edit]

This page says that capes are implemented via mods. Isn't an adjustment related to the way things look implemented via resourse pack? 71.212.10.80 22:25, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Normally, yes. However, in the case of capes, resource packs can't add them (generally, resource packs are unable to tweak player skins), and thus a mod is needed to have it check for a custom cape. --Pokechu22 (talk) 23:33, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Mapmaker vs Contributor[edit]

There's been some fighting about which the correct name is for that cape. In all cases on the atlas.minecraft.net article, "Mapmaker cape" is used; however, on namemc, "Realms contributor" is used.

Given that namemc isn't an official site (I'm only including it in the references section because it's a lot more approachable to seeing who has it than the texture API), it probably shouldn't be the source for the name. The name isn't found in any of the official APIs (well, we could call it the 43a51d34b076f9ada555dca562206bd942e46a3c4d5f83c2c29e5b9c3d7dbcb cape, but... you can see why that isn't a good idea).

However, it's possible that the name is found elsewhere (maybe on the mojang profile page). So if the name is found anywhere, it would be useful to know. Also, I'm going to contact namemc and see where they're getting that name from (because as far as I know, there isn't an API to get all capes owned by a player, yet they do so..., so there may be something I'm missing).

Pings: BDJP007301, Paaaaaaat, etc.

Looking at the site now, it calls the cape "Realms Mapmaker", and that is the name used on the Minecraft website, so I would go with "Mapmaker" KnightMiner t/c 04:24, 20 January 2016 (UTC)


Springstof here. On the Minecraft profile page the cape is called the MapMaker cape, with two capital M's. Proof: Screenshot. --Vrijgevochten (talk) 13:30, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Typo in 'mapmaker' cape section[edit]

It's a very minor change, but the page seems to be protected so I can't fix it myself. "Moseh" is supposed to be spelled "Moesh". Might also be good to reword it slightly, as it could easily be interpreted as a user named "Currently" also having the cape. My suggested version would be "The only known users that currently have this cape are Sethbling, ..., and Moesh."Qwertyuiopthepie (talk) 10:36, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Minecon 2016 cape[edit]

The 2016 Minecon cape it here! As I couldn't edit the Cape page on this wiki, here is the file for the cape which I got directly from "textures.minecraft.net" (although I renamed it, and added the .png).

Elytra photos[edit]

I wonder if the wiki shouldn't provide, for each cape, another image showing the render while wearing an Elytra. The page is semi-protected and I'm too lazy to create an account if this idea is not accepted... ;)

Minecon Earth (Minecon 2017)'s cape ?[edit]

Good day, Is there any cape for Minecon Earth Minecon 2017 ? Thanks. --Chamoni397 (talk) 18:15, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

No, no capes this year. --Hubry (talk) 23:08, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

There is some new cape with a green turtle on it: https://namemc.com/cape/6247661b7d033104 --Black Hole (talk) 17:30, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

It is still unknown that why is this cape given. Currently no source.--Skylord wars (talk) 08:00, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
