Hello, I am an old player, I play over 5 years on 1 character and I would love to have options for changing the gender of the character, I spent too much time on these 1 characters and money and I don't want to start my adventure anew. So, I ask you to sign up for this post, the more we are, the sooner the administration will consider these options. greetings

Turns out its just way too much work to swap.

Especially since some items are male or female only.

There is one problem, no matter what game I play now in each game is the option to change the sex form, so why can not they enter it here?

Can be solved. 

Remove the entire closet and done. 😛 

Probably have to change the purchase options from male to female (or vice versa) too but you can't carry over the clothing you designed. 

My honest thought when a thread like this pops up I'm just like

  • Certain clothing articles do not have their equivalents for the opposing gender. Those items would be lost in "transition", rendering all the money spent on them as wasted.
  • For existing equivalents, their properties would probably also be corrupted and/or lost (colouring and applied symbols; the latter would be messed up due to both genders in the game having different body shapes - for example, male characters can have their muscularity changed, whereas for female characters the muscularity slider only affects the shading of muscles already present on their body).
  • There is no starting point for this procedure - even in the pre-game character creation menu, changing the character's gender overwrites all visual changes and forces you to start the process all over again, instead of carrying over your choices.
  • The feature is unnecessary and introducing it would discourage players from rolling out new characters (and thus playing the game), since they can just flip between genders and turn a R255 female character into a R255 male character (or the other way around) instantly.

Impossible in the present day, unnecessary/unneeded in the engine upgraded APB.

 

(There are probably even more points to it than I've listed here, but I can't think of any more right now.)

i think that feature should exist , and be costly too so players don't abuse it , all clothes should be unequiped (but kept ) and all mails sent by armas deleted and instead give you again the female varients of the packs you own by mail

 

 

something like that should be a choice that a player do once .

This.

 

If you are bored just make a new character of opposite gender, it's a good time to do it right now as Halloween events are coming next week so you can farm some cool/unique items.

you do not understand anything unless. I play a character for over 5 years only only one, I have 60k killi on it and over 1.5k dollars spent, and I do not want to start anew because I'm just a pity

OLD CEO's tells  that its ho hard (complicated) to implement this feature into the game 

it needs to change alot of variables 
(i dont know the build of game database but i assume that first developers made some shit idea about milti records depends on genders in tables etc.)

it will be good to have a chance to change gender for like 500g1c

in my opinion, even if this option is available for 2000 g1c, I would buy it anyway, it is not complicated if all of your clothes have been faded so far and you will be collecting again, but you will still have that back changed

"I have spent a ton of money on my car racing game, but after 5 years I decided I like more planes. The devs should add an option to allow me to change all my cars to plane equivalents because I don't want to lose my time and money."

 

Thats how silly you sound.

 

The game does not have a gender swap option because it is not necessary. You spent a lot of money and time for that character? Good. It remains on that character. If you want to play a different character, make a new one and start over. Thats the point of playing.

 

And apart from whatever arguement you want to bring up, like "other games that have nothing to do with APB have such option", the devs are literally unable to do it. The conversion process is way too complex and easy to just create bugs, and you don't want that. Just look how easily the game breaks every time they "fix" something in the world.

Why in the world do people request such ridiculous things? Sure some games have it, like Saints Row but many games don't even have the ability to customize your character after making it

They'll give you the "too much work" excuse for anything you ask, like working on a game isn't the developers job.

This just in: a game is not being worked on in any aspect whatsoever because the developers did not immediately accept one person's random suggestion and start working on it right away.

Reminder that this is still a small company with a small team.

Maybe someday this will be feasible, but for now... its not.

If it were easy to do and you could make money off of it, it would exist. Necessity doesn't even matter.

But the game wasn't set up in a way which would easily (i.e. cheaply) allow it, so it doesn't exist.

Due to the way the game is designed, it is not possible. The engine upgrade will not change this, either. It simply will never be an option in this game, get over it and move on.

Best solution here. Give them the genderbender (for a nice G1C fee) but remove anything that makes it "hard" heck don't even save facial/hair customisations, give them a default bod and they can go to the Character Editor and fix that themselves. Basically delete the old character and make a new one with same rank.

 

But knowing APB, the genger swap option could have at least 25 pop ups and a statutory declaration that must be signed stating "YOUR CLOTHES WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO THIS" and we'll still have a deluge of posts popping up from enraged players who spent "millions of G1C" on a character only to lose it all cause they wanted to turn their innie into an outie.

Allow skirts for males and let women dress like men, there solved.

For all the progressiveness of RTW they forgot this crucial step and now LO is here picking up the pieces.
