AO-Skintool's purpose is to replace the current/old scripts and myriad of tools that exist to extract and compile the ingame skin file, and the planetmap. It is able to extract just about all skins and planetmap images be it old gui/new. RK and SL.
The purpose of this tool is not to be the best or THE only skintool, the purpose is to help set standards to avoid issues in the future!
Features: Skin file extraction/compiling, planetmap extraction/compiling. Small, fast, simple, easy. It does what it does and do it well! Uses OptiPNG to optimize the size of PNG files to a minimum filesize. (optional choice during compiling of skin/maps)
