You just started playing Minecraft the popular sandbox game developed by Mojang, and would you like to get a cape to make your avatar more beautiful but don’t know how to do it?
In today’s tutorial I’ll explain how to make a cape in minecraft and how to change the coat skin according to your needs (indicating where to go to find the necessary files). All this, of course, without any hacking, but only through normal mods created by the community and running with the latest version of the Mojang title.
How to get the cape in Minecraft step by step
Before going into details on how to have the cape in minecraft, I think you might be interested in learning more about the meaning of this aesthetic object within the game.
Well, since the birth of Minecraft, the cape has always been seen by users as an aesthetic object that distinguishes a player of great value.
The same Mojang, in fact, has repeatedly rewarded the best users of the community by giving them customized cloaks to use in the game world.
In short, having a cape in Minecraft can definitely earn you some degree of “authority” within the game and possibly make you “cooler” in the eyes of other players.
How to get the cape in Minecraft Premium
Minecraft is played a lot on PC and of course this is also the platform where you will find the most customizations and mods. Therefore, several methods of obtaining a cloak could not be missing: below you will find listed the most effective ones.
How to get the cape in Minecraft Premium without mod
As mentioned above, the cape is a very special item for Minecraft players and therefore getting it without using mods is quite complex.
Often the cloak is given away with the purchase of a ticket for the Minecon , an event dedicated to Minecraft fans that takes place every year in different parts of the world. For more information on this, I recommend that you check the official Mojang website (in English).
In addition, the layer is provided as a reward to users who over the years have contributed to developing Minecraft and translating it into different languages.
In short, as you may have already guessed, these methods are quite expensive in terms of time and money, but there is a shortcut: the one you will find in the next chapter of this guide and which refers to the use of mods.
How to get the cape in Minecraft for free
One of the possibilities most appreciated by the community is to use the mod in Minecraft. In fact, these “changes” to the game allow you to greatly improve the gaming experience. Among the various creations of the players, obviously a mod called could not be missing Advanced levels designed just to get the levels in Minecraft.
To install this mod in Minecraft Java Edition, I recommend installing the profile first Forge – To do this, simply go to the official Forge website and click on the item Installer . In some cases, you may need to click the orange button Show all versions to find the version of Minecraft you are playing with.
When the download is complete, open the file forge- [versione] -installer.jar obtained, select the item Install client and press OK .
Perfect, now the system will install the Forge profile in Minecraft. This procedure is valid for both Windows and macOS, as you are looking at a .jar file.
Now, go to Advanced Capes official website, select the Minecraft version a you’re playing and press the button Download / Download this file .
Now move the file advanced landscape [versione] .trarr in the path C: Users [nome utente] AppData Roaming .minecraft mods (Windows) or ~ / Library / Application support / minecraft / mods (Mac OS).
As for Windows, remember that AppData is a hidden folder and therefore you need to enable viewing of hidden folders.
To do this in Windows 10 write “Find file options” in search bar present at the bottom left and select the first result.
At this point, go to the tab visit select View hidden folders, files and drives and press OK . If, on the other hand, you use Windows 7 you must log in to Folder options and enable the option View hidden files and folders .
At this point, open Minecraft platform and click arrow icon in up on the green button at the bottom. Then select the option Edit profile and press the Play button.
Great: now you just have to start a new game (maybe by clicking on Single player and then on Create a new world ) and press the key F5 on the keyboard.
In this way, the view will be “enlarged” and you can see that your character is already using the default level introduced by the mod.
If not, press the button Esc select the item first Options y Skin customization and verify that the option layer is set to Sip .
You should now have obtained the cape in Minecraft Java Edition.
There are several methods to customize the level, but my advice is to take advantage of the text commands implemented by the mod. Then press the button T. on your keyboard and type the command / setcape url [link tovaglia] .png (Ex / setcape url https: // www. Creative Stop / wp-content / contents / 2019/06 / Cloak-Minecraft-. png to obtain the mantle of).
If, on the other hand, you want to use the layers created by the Advanced Capes community, just use the command / website setcape [username utente creatore mantello] (Eg / setcape IskanderGal website ).
Once done, press Send and the cloak will appear in the game.
As you may have already guessed, Layer Skins can be obtained from numerous sources. My advice is to trust those present directly on the official Advanced Capes website or do some research online.
However, remember that the layer mask files must be in .png format and have been uploaded to a site that has a URL accessible to everyone.
Other than that, you clearly need to have a working internet connection and authorize Minecraft to use it when the corresponding pop-up window appears, in case you are using Windows.
In some cases, .png files found on the web may not work, as not all layer masks are compatible with the Advanced Capes mod. For this reason, below I list some of the best skins I have had the opportunity to try, followed by the command to activate them.

Warning: URLs and levels linked to users could clearly change and therefore the commands I have listed above are for indicative purposes only.
In any case, I recommend that you take a look at the Minecraft Encyclopedia (in English), where you can find countless types of cloaks to use for your character.
How to get the cape in Minecraft PE
Over the years, users have also found ways to wear the Minecraft Pokect Edition cape by going through the edition from different game files.
Specifically, players place the modified files inside the Minecraft Pocket Edition root folder. My advice, however, is to leave these methods .
In fact, they are not well regarded by the community, as you are going to get your hands on “sensitive” folders, where you could compromise the game in its entirety.
Also, I assure you that Minecraft Pocket Edition is quite fun even without a cape and that you will find other cosmetic elements that will suit your needs in terms of the character’s appearance.
How to get the cape in Minecraft PS4
Console players also wish to have the cape in Minecraft. Unfortunately, this aesthetic element is extremely difficult to obtain on platforms such as PS4 .
The only method to get a cape in Minecraft for PS4, Xbox One or Switch is to wait for the developers to decide to make this aesthetic element available to users.
In reality this has already happened, but only on some special occasions, for example during the Minecon event dedicated to fans of the Mojang title.
Therefore, I cannot be more specific with my directions, since the promotional periods in which a cape can be obtained in the console version of Minecraft are decided by the developers, often without too much notice – I can only advise you to be careful!
