Female and male characters
I have waited for this kind of survival game for a long time and i am loving it.

Im wonderin just one thing. Why some male characters are using female character models?
I understand that some men may be female looking, but sometimes i get a character model which is certainly meant to be female, but it says shes male.

It dosnt bother me much, i just use the randomize again, but its just weird. It doesn't happen on female characters, they always get the female model.

It would be cool to choose the model for your colonist, it doesn't chance anything expect appearance in the game.

I dont want to offend anyone by asking this, just wondering. Maybe they have slept in space and the time has done some strange things or something? :P

It's almost like male and female are socially constructed concepts that don't bear close examination in situ

Who'd a thunk

Im pretty sure by "Models" you mean body shape, and im also pretty sure body shape is linked to backstory, not gender, maybe there are some ties, but its mostly backstory im pretty sure. Obviously someone correct me if im spewing lies.

Sexual dimorphism will be expanded on in future updates - says Tynan.
In the latest version of Rimworld body type is connected to gender. However, the smallest body looks similar if not the same, because at that size it would be hard to tell what gender someone is unless you looked at there chest area. This is because women with small boobs look like men. As for it being connected to the backstory, I can not say for sure. However, I would love to see a cup size mod or maybe the base game update for the female type. Having a cup size option would help you tell what gender with the smaller body type. At the end of the day, devs and modders can do what they want with there work.
A 4 year necro, and for what?
So what if its a necro? Did your world collapse because of it?

Such a stupid argument.

There was literally no reason to summon this thread from the grave. Stop it.
