    Does it cost to upload a custom skin, because it says "you need atleast 5000 xp to create a custom skin"

    Uploading skins does not cost anything, you just need at least 5k XP to be able to do so.

  • March 20, 2020 7:59 AM PDT
    Do you mean cash? Because it doesn’t let me unless I have 5k cash

    Really? I can't recall the last time I uploaded a skin, though I don't remember it working that way.

    Was this the error? "The total price of all your published skins may not exceed 5000 cash."
    It means that a sum of prices of your published skins may not be more than 5000 cash. This is to prevent users from creating bunch of 5K skins just for cash transfer.
    This restriction is only imposed for new users who haven't reached sufficient sales.

    No if I had under 5k cash I couldn’t upload a skin

    What he is probably saying is that you must have earned 5000 xp before you are able to upload skins. And it shows up as an error if you go to make a skin and haven’t yet earned 5k.

    It isn’t an error I brought it up because I thought that was what lemo had meant, starscream is correct.

    Hey Max,what happend to Skin cases?

    It didn't made much sense to have skin cases when everyone can upload their own skins for free.

    That being said cases might still return but instead of skins they will contain some rare items

    What kind of Rare iteams?

  • May 17, 2020 5:00 PM PDT

    Does the owner of the skin, do you onw the skin too?

  • May 17, 2020 5:31 PM PDT

    So if I make a skin, can I use it for myself.

    Or do I have to have enough sales and revenue to use it?
