== Mojang New & Gr8_Escape cape to Selection page? ==
Forgot the PlayStation Little Big Planet Pack: https://www.textures-resource.com/playstation_3/minecraftplaystation3edition/
Also The Gr8_Escape and Mojang-New capes are missing from the selection menu collage image. I'm sure Ined wouldn't mind giving you guys the API name for the Gr8 cape if that is missing since the Mojang-New already has its API name public.

Revision as of 05:56, 10 September 2021

Client Mods

This page says that capes are implemented via mods. Isn't an adjustment related to the way things look implemented via resourse pack? 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)

Skin settings

"Skin options/Disable cape" => changes ?

Mapmaker vs Contributor

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.

--Pokechu22 (talk) 23:31, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

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

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)

Fixed. Skylinerw (talk) 11:59, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Minecon 2016 cape

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). 04:44, 26 September 2016 (UTC)LeeSpork

Elytra photos

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... ;) 12:42, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

Minecon Earth (Minecon 2017)'s cape ?

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)

but there is a minecon live 2019 cape. -- 21:28, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Turtle Cape

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)

Does anyone care how many users own a cape?

I noticed several entries that say "As of (date), X users own this cape."

These things keep changing, and it seems like an unnecessary maintenance burden to keep updating them. It's trivia. Do we really need these factoids in the article? Does anyone object to removing them? ~ Amatulic (talk) 06:32, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

I'll remove this information in a week or so if there's no objection. ~ Amatulic (talk) 18:53, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
 Comment I think it can be changed to "A list of users that own this cape is [here]. --dr03ramos Piston JE2.gif (talk) Admin wiki[pt] 19:00, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
@Dr03ramos: Good idea. Done. ~ Amatulic (talk) 21:04, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

Bedrock Edition Jeb hair cape

i noticed that capes from skin packs are now listed on this page however one i noticed still missing was jeb's "hair cape" from the 3rd birthday skin pack https://marketplace.minecraft.net/en-us/pdp?id=603d6be1-7745-4ad8-8af3-908ad017500f

however i suck at editing wikis and neither do i know how i'd create a proper render so i'm just adding this to the talk page 19:11, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Mojang Studios

Can somebody change every reference of “Mojang AB” to “Mojang Studios?” — 16:49, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Applied it to the description of the Mojang capes.--Minerpix17 (talk) 06:09, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

More skin pack capes

This skin pack (https://www.minecraft.net/nl-nl/pdp?id=7c90a678-4077-4dee-ab22-caddf7b96ed8#) has some more capes, I have no idea how to get the png so I am asking here if someone can get the png and add it to the page, Thanks And how do you get the texture btw? (so I can also get some if I find more)

The 2019 Cape Appears Twice on The Same Page

The 2019 cape is listed in both Minecon Capes and Bedrock Capes. Surely there is a better way to convey this information. Perhaps listing them as Java Minecon Capes and Bedrock Minecon Capes.

I wonder is there's a cape for MINECON Live 2020?

I think ill be attending the stream even its starting in midnight in my time zone! I wonder if there's a special cape, too.--Ryanlam123456 (talk) 13:57, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

New Microsoft Account Migration Cape

It was revealed in a new video by Mojang that players on Java Edition who switch their account to Microsoft get a new cape that's red with a black triangle. – Preceding unsigned comment was added by Explodingguy123 (talkcontribs) at 17:36, October 21, 2020 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

The article suggested that it may be possible to earn multiple capes, but the other cape(s) were not shown/mentioned in the video – Preceding unsigned comment was added by NotAFishyFishyFish (talkcontribs) at 18:06, 21 October 2020 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
It's red with black "triangle" that is divided with yellow color line, I will work on preview texture and upload real texture with renders ASAP. Also, should there be a new category for Microsoft Account Capes? since they are hinting for multiple capes in the article... Richard01 cze (talk) 18:08, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

Should capes be extremely rare or just rare?

As of the Migration cape annoucment, extremely rare statement got changed to rare but that's just for one cape, the other capes are still extremely rare and i would say impossible to get. so should it be changed back or the overall description rewritten? Richard01 cze (talk) 07:53, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

I'd say don't mention rarity at all, it's subjective anyway. Dhranios (talk) 08:00, 24 October 2020 (UTC)


Please fix the spelling of "receive" (it has benn misspelled) in the second paragraph of the "Obtaining" section.-- 14:41, 30 October 2020 (UTC)

Original files

What do you think about undoing the file changes so that the cape textures are actually the original in the "Original" column? It makes sense to me to have the actual original files in there instead of edited to have no white around them making them basically edited. Same for Elytra on its page. Richard01 cze (talk) 19:53, 4 March 2021 (UTC)


The description of the Prismarine cape says "for unknown reason". Could somebody please fix this? I can't edit the page since it's locked and the error is driving me up the walls. – Unsigned comment added by (talk). Sign comments with ~~~~

Veteran Cape

The veteran cape is currently listed and says that it "was given" to players that "have migrated" but there are no known accounts that have migrated yet, nor any instances of said cape having been given to anyone. Also, apart from the [recreation] tags, it does not mention anywhere that it's recreated from an official video without any confirmation from Mojang or any of the staff. The Migration FAQ also states clearly: "We have not started migrating any accounts yet." The cape isn't confirmed, is this entry valid? --hibi (talk) 21:31, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Translator cape renders

Should i render the translator capes to match all other capes with their camera position and add link to Easter_eggs#Capes ? I feel like that needs to be addressed to be consistant across the whole page.

cheapsh0t's cape removal

I just found on NameMC that cheapsh0t no longer has the japanese translator cape, and the page for that cape lists nobody owning it. Does anyone know why and when it happened?--ManosSef (talk) 09:37, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

I have asked cheapshot and he hid his cape on namemc. --Richard01 cze (talk) 10:22, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

Actual Names of Capes Table Addition

It appears that some capes have names that are not shown in the tables. Example: “MrMessiah's Cape”, cape name is “Spade” according to namemc Litorom1 (talk) 18:27, 25 July 2021 (UTC)

That's what NameMC named it. There is no official name of the cape released by Mojang. Richard01 cze (talk) 18:35, 25 July 2021 (UTC)
Should there be a “NameMC Name” Column? Since most of the sources uses NameMC? Litorom1 (talk) 18:42, 25 July 2021 (UTC)
Why? And what do you mean by sources? Richard01 cze (talk) 18:45, 25 July 2021 (UTC)
Sources being like Mojang Employee Volgar name links to his NameMC page. And the knowledge of his Cape. So why not have the capes’ names appear on the table. Litorom1 (talk) 18:53, 25 July 2021 (UTC)
Links to user's Minecraft profile is only possible using NameMC and it is to show the user who owns the cape, that's why i have changed all NameMC links with User's name in it to user's uuid so that it doesn't show incorrectuser if name change occurs. API names are used by Mojang to determine what cape it is, currently Volgar's and Gr8_Escape's cape API names are not known because the accounts are owned by a mojang employee. And like in MrMessiah's case, the API name could be Gr8_Escape and Volgar or completely different. It shouldn't change until it's proven to be the actual API name. Richard01 cze (talk) 19:04, 25 July 2021 (UTC)
I wasn’t talking about the API name, I was talking about adding a new Column and calling it NameMC Name since the reason that the User ID Cape Knowledge is maintained by NameMC Litorom1 (talk) 19:13, 25 July 2021 (UTC)

Migertor Cape

So I bough my Minecraft acount in November 30th, could I get the cape? VillagerDude 12:31, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

If you bought the game using your Microsoft account, then no. But if using a Mojang account, yes. NexaForX ♦ (𝓣𝓪𝓵𝓴 | 𝓒𝓸𝓷𝓽𝓻𝓲𝓫𝓼) ♦ 12:35, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

Bedrock/Console Edition capes

Should the bedrock/console edition capes be re-rendered with the skin that the cape is assigned to? Because you can't have for example the Evil Wizard cape without Evil Wizard skin. I'm asking because i have missing capes for bedrock/console edition ready to be rendered. Richard01 cze (talk) 11:41, 29 August 2021 (UTC)
