Users have long been able to edit the appearance of indie hit Minecraft, but it's taken some tinkering to do so. No longer, as the game now contains official support for "skin packs".

Starting later today, users will be able to login to their Minecraft accounts and, upon selecting their world, will be able to choose any graphics modifications they've got installed for the game right from Minecraft's menu.

If you're new to the game (or are a light user) and want to customise your Minecraft experience once this new system is implemented, The Painterly Pack is as good a place to start as any.
