Solved Heads not showing up as heads!?!?

    I made a command to set a player's head to whatever name's head he wants, here's my code:

            ItemStack skull = new ItemStack(397, 1, (short) 3);
            SkullMeta meta = (SkullMeta) skull.getItemMeta();
    However it shows up as Steve or Alex skinned! I know you can fix the head by placing it down, destroying it, picking up the drop and wearing it. However, I want the skin to be there when it spawns in! Any idea how to do this? Thanks!

    I've heard that players see steve skins if their Minecraft version is less than 1.7.9

    new ItemStack(397, 1, (short) 3);
    This method is deprecated, use Material instead of ids now :
    new ItemStack(Material.SKULL_ITEM, 1, (short) 3);

    I'm using 1.8.1 and I see steve :(

    Thanks, I undeprecated my code, but it still shows up as steve.

    Does anyone know how to fix this weird issue?

    EDIT: I think the issue may be related to UUIDs. Does anyone know how to get a player head by UUID? There's no such method meta.setOwner(<uuid>) :(

            ItemStack playerSkull = new ItemStack(Material.SKULL_ITEM, ChatColor.DARK_AQUA + playerName, (short) 3);
            SkullMeta sm = (SkullMeta) playerSkull.getItemMeta();
    This works for me, what Spigot/Craftbukkit version are you using ?

    1. It doesn't compile (the ItemStack constructor is wrong, did you mean to put that String in there!?!?)
    2. After changing the
    ChatColor.DARK_AQUA + playerName
    to a 1, it still doesn't work. It shows up as Steve.
    3. 1.8
    4. Thanks for helping, I appreciate it :D

    EDIT: How exactly does it work for you? When you execute the command and get a head placed in your inventory, does the head show up with the player's skin in your inventory without placing it down?

    Alright I solved this by creating a player head, getting the item drop for it, removing the head, and giving that item drop to the player.

    Yeah the head shows up with the player's skin without placing it down.
