We understand this is a sore subject for a lot of people. We understand that you may now be a gender that you don’t identify with in real-life.

The only difference is that whether you feel like this is now decided by your SteamID instead of your real life gender.

This is really just the first pass of an ongoing rework of the player model. I’ll continue to add variations over the comings weeks which means you’re probably not stuck with your new face forever. We’ve got a decent synced workflow between the assets I make in Zbrush and the assets you’ll see in-game now, so it opens up a lot of scope to easily add or change features without a great deal of technical faffing in-between.

Well I wish we could trade...Because I loaded up the game praying I didn't get the female model and now there it is staring back at me...I never thought it would have a negative influence on my desire to play, but sadly it did.

There's algorithms that can determine outcomes based on "seeds". Seeds usually being a chain of numbers and/or letters. A seed running through Minecraft's algorithm for example can determine the layout of the entire world. Different seed, different world. Same seed, same world.

Usually seeds are created randomly and silently in the background when you hit a "create world" button for example, but in this case Rust uses your unique SteamID as a seed for character creation.

How exactly seeds generate characters or worlds usually differs between algorithms. I think one of the more common techniques is to first convert any letters into numbers, then for example adding the first (7) and last number of the string (2) and grabbing "skin color #9" from a catalog. You can generate a lot of different outcomes by adding/multiplying/subtracting/dividing various numbers in the seed, or you can make "coinflips" (like for gender) by checking whether a certain number is even or uneven.

this is bs if you can program a whole game you can make gender and race customisable stop being bullies im not playing till its fixed

I think they should'nt of put females into the game until they gave you the option to pick. Now a lot of guys have the female character model, and girls who've been waiting for the female character models to be put in the game, still have the male character model.

I'm in the exact same boat. I've been waiting for this update for nearly half a year annnnnd I'm still the wrong ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ gender. I probably won't be playing rust again, it's demoralizing as ♥♥♥♥. They should just make gender a one-time permanent account choice.

I was a male before the update... now I'm a female. ;(
