Add sample texture with cape #1393
@DS-Minetest I think that many people will prefer a character without cape. So I think it's better to not have a cape by default. However I personally wouldn't mind if the default character had a cape.
Having a cape or not is just a matter of choosing the right texture. See this mod. I don't know if it would be possible to actually disable just the cape. Or an arm or leg for that matter. Anyway, if it's doable at all, then that would be a minetest-core change.
I disapprove of both,
Since this PR is for adding an example of how to add a cape to the player skin, if something like this is added perhaps better to include a large template with all texture sections labelled, like this plus cape:
This would be best added in the mod folder, not in 'textures'.
My general objection to capes is because they are a copy of something very Minecrafty, capes in Minecraft are very much associated with Minecon exclusives, so capes seem a little like distasteful copying, like Minecraft adding Mese block.
