A combination of wanting to make a political statement, making sure there aren’t too many white people/male people avatars running round (seriously, the Garry said it was because he didn’t want to see too many white people) and not being arsed to program a char creator.
Hmm, I personally think you hit the nail on the head with the last part there. As for wanting to make a “politcal statement” is concerend, is a computor game the best place to do it?. I dunno, maybe.
Surely you would make an avatar in your likeness the vast majority of the time?. I know I do anyway. So if there are too many white males running around, I’m sure that must just mean that there are mostly white males playing the game?. I would assume anyway, and I dont understand why that would be seen as a bad thing.
A character creator is always a very popular edition to a game. And the deeper the better. Its essential in MMO’s. Not that I am suggesting that Rust is an MMO. But in a way, it kinda is.
Which is why I think your final point makes the most sense.
Are you saying that you think that the most likely reason is because Facepunch can’t be bothered to program a character creator? And yet they can be bothered to completely re-write the game from the ground up, program weather conditions, re-write the building mechanism when they weren’t happy with their first implementation?
The only reason you can’t change sex is because that is the way Gary decided it should be. If they wanted a character creator they would have one by next update.
Well, who knows. I’m sure they prioritize things more than others. If enough people would like a character creator a little down the line, I’m sure it would be worth implementing, even if its just to keep your player base happy.
I like how you cant select who you are just like in real life. I would also hate to see big racked white women or long dick white men around. This keeps the game much more unique and colorful. Hell my characters dick is really small but you wont see me complaining about it.
There should be a option to change your skin color im tired of going on servers and hear people say come here you n***** this happens every time i play. its getting old as im stuck as a black person. It kind of sucks too when the main server i spend most of my time turns out that im the only black dude running around. This kind of promotes racism.
Rust added skintone diversity. Rust did not add racism. Racism existed in the players before the update. It’s simply that, until then, everyone was a bald white guy clone so there was nothing for them to complain about.
Rust didn’t make those people racist, it just gave them an opportunity to show you they’re horrible people. Cave their heads in with your rock, get the admin to intervene and ban them if they won’t stop acting like racist shits, and leave for a better server if necessary.
Dude i have over 2400 hours in rust. And now that everyone is forced to play experimental admins are only active during updates ive yet to see an admin on a official server. Beside you can still talk when your dead. os this really fixes nothing.
Nobody is forced to play the new version of Rust, you fool.
And, hey, surprise, official servers are unmonitored except when devs hop on to investigate reports tweeted to @Rusthackreport. Play on community servers if you want admin actually intervening with any regularity.
How does this have anything to do with what he posted? All he asked was to be able to change the GENDER. He clearly said he doesn’t care about the actual appearance of his character, just the GENDER.
Everything you said is invalid, choosing genders would not “Make him see to many white people” and a character creator? Cause they would tots need to make a full character creation screen just to allow you to change your gender? lol no.
I honestly don’t care about the whole gender/appearance being random, but everything you said has nothing to do with what murphymcbean posted.
