Ugly wrinkled woman face for female players

Do you have an idea that could improve Survarium? Let us know here.

I have noticed Survarium has few female players active (frankly, I'm trying to bring on board some), but exclusively male faces.

I understand that VG doesn't want any "Lara Crofts" or other "beauty queen contests", and they wouldn't fit Survarium world.

However, ugly, wrinkled, 40years+, hair-under-babushka-scarf woman face, with the "angry soviet cleaning lady" grimace if you know what I mean, would fit Survarium perfectly. Something like:

or https://sobchak.files.wordpress.com/201 ... randma.jpg

It would offer female players a character to associate with, while discouraging male teenage players to play "beauty queens".

Off course I understand if VG fears that such change would increase the ammount of insults, "teenage humor" and overal stupidity in the in-game chats.

It's not only faces. It's different animations and weapon stances, smaller hitboxes, possibly having to re-do voice-overs and all armors...

Why?! If you watch eg. pro-Russian "Opolcenie" fighters in Ukraine, they all use the same stances. Females have the same joints and bones as males, and marksmanship principles stay the same too.

Further, since plate carriers are not shaped to, ehm, compensate for female body shape, and since protective clothing in Survarium isn't tight but instead very "baggy", there is no need to adjust body shapes either. Just put on a different face with shoulder-length hair.

Remember we're not talking "Miss world" or "Twiggy" with 90-60-90. We're talking average robust survivor in the 100kgs weight class. The thin ones were killed by the forest wildlife in the early days of contaigon...

VG and the survarium community in general have a fairly retrograde mindset about females

This is not currently planned. VG will let you know if the plan changes.

Just last week, I met two more (new) female players in-game. Incidentally, both were Czech.
