Almost every RPG gives players the ability to change the gender of their player. But in Minecraft, players are stuck with Steve, the blocky man trapped in an even blockier world. There’s no option to change the player to a female model, which is unfortunate for Minecraft’s sizable audience of female players (or for guys who want to see what life is like as a female Minecraft player).
Well, things have changed thanks to iPixeli’s Female Gender Option mod. This mod gives multiplayer, singleplayer, and offline Minecraft players the ability to change their model to a female model. Female player models are slightly smaller than the male models.
But instead of stopping there, the mod also adds a range of other character customization options that will appeal to both male and female Minecraft players. Players can modify their age, for example, and the mod even adds female zombies to the game.
After installing the Female Gender Option mod, players are able to select their gender. When playing as a female character, players will even hear female ‘hurt’ sounds when injured. A new configuration GUI makes it easy to change player age or select a new model. In short, this is the customization mod Minecraft players wanted in order to make changing player models as easy as possible.
And for those who want to play as young Minecraft players, the mod also adds children models to the game. No matter which model you’re playing the game as, the play style will be the same – aside from aesthetics, there is no discernible difference between male, female, and child models.
Most female Minecraft players would prefer to play the game as a girl character, and there are even quite a few male Minecraft players who would prefer the same. No matter which group you fall into, the Female Gender Option mod gives players the option to change genders while customizing characters in other ways.
