    Gender Reassignment

    Either we should get rid of the whole M/F restrictions on armor or we should allow avatars to get sex changes.

    When I started my account those many years ago I was never made aware how sex would affect the markup for the same types of armor. It's sexual discrimination!

    I know, it's totally ridiculous right now. I've seen Mayhem female harnesses sell recently as low as 103%, while many male harnesses have sold at 200% or more... Male Angel harness ir around 150-160%, while the fenale version is on average 120%.

    This gives female avatars a huge advantage over male avatars in a rce game like this. MA needs to eliminate the whole M/F restrictions on limited armor pieces.

    There could be advantages for the economy of EU.
    Just think, hormone pills, and plastic surgery could be expanded to cover gender reassignment.

    Actually how about just allowing M avatars to obtain an advantage re strength - Like the situation IRL.

    It would be simpler & would save everyone the sight of unconvincing ex M avatars pretending now to be F

    Gender changing or not, armors should be unisex.

    M & F Avatars have different shapes - it may be painful for F to fit into M armours.

    And if armours were unisex, what about clothes? Cross dressing avs may look a bit silly

    Going by that logic every avatar is technically a different size due to the way the character creation program works, so perhaps all clothes and armor should be soul bound... Always thought it gross that there is a market in this game for used undergarments...

    Yes, having a way to swap F to M and vice versa would be nice. Allow crafters the ability to do this swapping. Making use of existing non-usable materials would perhaps be the way to go about this... time crystals come to mind...

    How about a way of converting M to F armor and vice versa. E.g. by spending some currently unused materials. Maybe a simmilar system to tier upgrading.

    I think that's a great idea. Tiers would be lost though.

    They already do when you know what that person's real gender is. It's just impossible to watch such an ava and believe cheap armour was the sole motivation. I don't think we need to worry about this though. It is safe to leave clothes alone since they are technically an entirely different category.
    1. I NEVER post off-topic.
    2. If you disagree, go to 1.

    I based my gender choice based on cheaper armor back in 2004

    Looted armor parts should be a BP instead of an item, that have 100% success and 1 attempt.
    If there have to be some material for the attempt to work, well include some few Nano cubes.
    This way we can chose what gender we want from that attempt.
