A Starfield modification that allowed users to remove pronouns from the character creation process has been banned by NexusMods. As anticipated, Starfield has been receiving a continuous influx of modifications from the enthusiastic gaming community since its release, thus aligning itself with the prior Bethesda games.
Next year, official mod support will be introduced for Starfield, but that hasn't deterred modders from releasing various interesting mods for the game in the meantime. Some of these mods aim to enhance the Starfield experience by implementing quality-of-life improvements. Other Starfield mods bring more significant changes to the gameplay. There is a multitude of Starfield mods to choose from, although those interested in the pronoun removal modification will need to look elsewhere than NexusMods to download it.
Starfield's decision to allow players to choose their pronouns during the character creation process has stirred some controversy and led to viral outbursts from certain individuals who were dissatisfied with the inclusion of this feature. This resulted in the development of a modification that removes the pronoun selection from the game. NexusMods responded by banning the Starfield pronoun removal modification and emphasized that this decision does not constitute a political statement. "We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our community, and removing diversity, although appealing to some, does not foster a positive modding community," NexusMods stated to 404 Media. NexusMods has made similar decisions in the past, so it is not surprising that they have removed this modification from their website.
While there are those who reject the notion of Starfield allowing players to select their pronouns, the game's character creation tools have otherwise been well-received by the community. Starfield's character creator grants players significant freedom in shaping their ideal intergalactic adventurer. Fans of Starfield have crafted their own original characters from scratch, while others have utilized the creation tools to replicate famous personalities or popular fictional characters.
Starfield players have replicated actors like Willem Dafoe, real-life astronauts, and more. With the increasing number of Starfield players, fans can expect to see even more impressive character creations being shared online.
Starfield's extensive design tools also extend to the spaceships in the game. Starfield allows players to build virtually any desired ship, whether practical or absurd. Just as many Starfield players have used the character creation tools to replicate famous personalities and popular fictional characters, numerous well-known spaceships have also been created within the game. Starfield modifications can assist players in the ship creation process and even offer them more freedom than the base game allows.
Starfield is out now for PC and Xbox Series X.
