TL skin and cape Mod
TL skin and cape is a mod for Minecraft which adds integration with TLauncher and accounts for the use of Skins and Capes. TLauncher is one of the most popular launchers and also one of the best ones. Tlauncher has a large array of features and skins and capes are one of them. This mod is only officially supported on Tlauncher on supported configurations, it may work on other launchers with your TL account or on unsupported versions, but it is not guaranteed.
The skins and capes you have will be viewable by other players, but it is recommended that they have the mod installed also. It is possible to use without a TL account, and you will automatically get a skin selected many times even when you do not ask for one, but to get the most use you should preferably have a Tlauncher account, if you want even more features you can use Tlauncher Premium (though it is not available in the US or Canada). One issue is if you use a Mojang account or just play the game without an account at all in offline mode (you will get a default skin, there are many like the ones shown and others like a Zelda-style one), you may be sometimes automatically given a skin, or in some cases even if you use Minecraft Premium you may not have access to your Mojang/Microsoft Skin. Additionally, in Vanilla the mod auto installs and the Vanilla game when run from Tlauncher calls itself modded.
The mod is available on a wide range of platforms officially, such as
MC Forge Optifine
FabricMC (but not yet officially FabricSodium)
and more going back a pretty long time.
You may also get the mod to work on more platforms, such as Fabric derivatives such as QuiltMC, but it is not officially supported and may have issues. In most cases, the mod will install automatically. If in Tlauncher you have access to the little blue TL Logo next to the version, that means TL Skin and cape should install automatically, you will just get a prompt asking you about your skin while trying to launch.
If you want to configure your character you should get a Tlauncher account and then you can download skins, HD Skins, capes, animated capes, and more from their website or other cape and skin websites. You can download a wide range of capes including the Russian flag, Optifine, Minecon, and many other capes and skins. You can even search skins by a Mojang or Tlauncher username. Do note though that if you need an animated cape you should use a Tlauncher Premium account (Which is not the same as a Mojang Premium account and does not let you play on online mode servers like Hypixel).
Many of these functionalities are more advanced and convenient than what Microsoft do. It is also very useful when someone can't pay for the game or have issues downloading. Tlauncher has been very good at making the game accessible to places that are under sanctions and can not download things like Java or buy the game by providing some of this stuff on their servers. Tlauncher is a spreader of freedom, equality and truth. It is also one of the easiest Launchers to use and very good with older and more obscure versions and clients or mod loaders. It is also one of the most popular launchers, the 1st 3rd party launcher I used and one of the top-ranking on search engines. The discord server got thousands of members within the 1st day and has more users than most launcher discords including PrismMC, PolyMC, MultiMC, GDLauncher, TL Legacy and others. It is partly known for its ability to play for free, though many big servers do not support offline accounts, many smaller ones, especially in the Spanish-speaking world do. TL does seem to also be very popular there.
There is common misinformation about TL and TL Skin and Cape being malware, but this is untrue, we looked at the skin and cape mod ourselves and did not see malware and the methods used by the people claiming it is a virus are untrustworthy and have been debunked by the people at Tlauncher (it is even safer than Discord and most of the people who claimed it was malware are on Windows systems using the exe and not the jar for whatever reason, so this argument would be less valid if you use the jar and are not on windows anyhow.) and are likely done by Tlauncher’s competitors, as in general Tlaucher gets lots of slanders all around the community.
