Male/Female models for all Warframes
Idea lost relevancy since dev ultimatum.

It is a good idea and I agree, but for the time being it seems like they wont. maybe once the game goes out of beta they will, that would be nice

I'm not in favor of it, mostly because it would double the amount of texturing/modeling work required for each new frame. It'd be nice, yeah, but there are more important things the developers could be working on than purely cosmetic options.

well one way the could do it and would be a little easier would be a skin you could unlock to make your character appear male or female like the skins you can get for some of the melee weapons.

This isn't one of those MMO where you choose your own gender, race, skin color, haircut, etc. The warframes are as they are. It may disrupt the future lore if the ability the choose different genders became possible. But I am sure this is somewhere on the list... at some point, when DE jumps the shark, you will get your gender swap.

That's exactly why I said at the begining of my post that I don't know how realistic this suggestion is. And that's all it is. A suggestion. Something to think about. And I did think of that. I don't really know much of the lore of the game, and what I'm suggesting could seriously mess it up. Again, that's why it's a suggestion. This is purely a desire of mine. I doubt it would actually effect the game in any good way (and you've named a few negative ways), and to be honest, I too would like the developers to work on pumping out more content with long term value.
This fantasy will probably remain just that: a fantasy.
But hey, it's here. Can't hurt to try.

DE already sais they wouldn't make it possible to swap genders. However they are planning to make similar warframes with the opposite gender. So there will be a female warframe with the same feel as excalibur for example.

i could care less about gender i love the game its awesome the way it is i was just saying they could make it a possiblity if they wanted to and that would be easier then designing a whole new character.

Robots have genders now?

I'm happy now.
Thanks

I like this idea. 1 thing that has always drawn me to a new game is how much customization options we have, and the more we have, the more I'm interested.
I also think if the devs are willing to put in the extra work to make gender choice an option for all warframes, it might expand their player base; like someone that wants to play the team healer Trinity but wants their character to be a male because they themselves are male irl.
(Note: I only say it like this because it is to my possibly outdated knowledge that at least half the worlds players all make their online characters the same gender they are irl, so no sexism meant here. Only speaking from my personal observations over many years.)
So one more time, I like this idea =)

Caps lock much...

I like the idea, but if the guys who make this game have bigger plans, I doubt this will be at the top of the list.

Their stated reson for not doing this is because they wanted to have warframes feel like unique characters like they do in games like DotA or League of Legends.
