Snakeskin armor can be crafted in F2P between the crafting levels of 45-53, and can be worn by F2P at Defense and Ranged levels are 30. But, there aren't any snakes or events that drop snake hides. Either it needs to become a P2P set and be taken from F2P, like some other things, or an area for them to be obtained in the F2P map. Since it becomes a false hope/thought for someone running a Ranged in F2P for the bonuses of range armor.
Its just like when maple logs were f2p items but none of the maple tress were in f2p areas until DG. Or treasure trials items. Its pretty normal.°l||l° Modest Skillers T7 Citadel | Skilling clan recruiting players. °l||l°

Wasn't aware of carapace set, as I haven't played in over a decade on different character. Just knew snakeskin was the set after studded leather and before green dragon. So I spent the last 5+ days grinding my crafting just to make full snake set, without having done the hunting for the snake hides.
But, I'd say, either way, they should fix it one way or another.
Because the snakehide comes from the tai bwo wannai cleanup activity and as such is kept valuable by the adversity of the minigame.
I really don't like it when disconnected players come up with ideas to change the source of materials because they don't know or remember when it comes from in the first place. That's how we ended up with terrible stuff like the M+S rework.
