[Suggestion] Female characters are a bit ugly
No votes left
Female characters are more ugly than male characters.
The background graphics are good, but the characters are completely zero.
I think the character needs to be improved.
I wish the female characters were pretty.

The character models are really quite ugly. My female looks closer to a male monkey than a female. Give us some better options to choose from
Females should look like females and men should look like men. They are different!
I would've suggested adding more and better detailed facial features, like making them appear more realistic. Particularly adding more skin tones and complexions, but I'm not seeing the importance of making any characters prettier, really.

She is so ugly, it's almost an anti-sexist sexist hate crime. Where the crime is simply an ugly unidentified gender. Give us a man and a woman, and the ability to make them "un-gendered" if you need to be politically correct. When I clicked feminine, I thought I was creating a character for Planet of the apes.
People who have trouble with gender identity often complain if there is even an option for male or female roles in a game. But seriously give us the options 1st of an actual female, then the option to give her a beard and bad skin if we want. This blackhead ridden long armed ape-man you guys call feminine might make "early man" (aka prehistoric cave-men ) "a rise", but there is nothing feminine about the feminine character options.

Are we expecting Miss World lookalikes to be grubbing about in the dirt with a stone axe and a pointed stick?
Seems a really big difference between the real world and the game, are there going to be skimpy space suits next? If not why does it matter? You wear the helmet all the time.
title says it all.
I'm okay with the chosen female faces, I don't mind my hardened prospector looking a little grizzled.
HOWEVER, Devs, please note 2 things;
Firstly, all female characters ears are too big for their caps, and stick/clip out through the cap, unlike the mens ears.
Secondly, a BUG, if you customise a female character after creation, it resets her head back to head #1 and you can't change it back.
Give us custom character options, preferably the one that can import character models
Look at pictures of women working in difficult "male" professions. You will find beautiful women miners, mechanics, engineers and many other professions where hard physical work is involved. But women always strive to be beautiful, even if they have a hard job. And a beautiful woman may want to be an astronaut, or a space prospector, a scout. It doesn't matter that my character is always in a spacesuit, I want my woman to be a woman and not a female caveman with a pickaxe in her hand.
It is funny how a few years back people tried to turn down on beauty of fantasy world characters to make them a bit more "realistic" as to not set up "unachievable standards" and now we ask game industry to turn up on beauty of fantasy world character for roughly same cause - to make them a bit more realistic.
Can't wait for someone to complain that there should be a genderless option 🙈
Create realistic female avatars. Current ones are no bueno.
I'm a girl. I love playing female characters. I cannot help but believe that adding female characters was a last minute addition and some genius thought they could just tweak the male faces and enlarge the chest area and called it good. I can even put facial hair on my girl and I guess that part is okay but they are all so mannish. And how about racial diversity? That would be great also. :)
I agree I got my hubs into playing Icarus with me and I'm not saying I need my characters to look like some hot Conan Exiles chick with swinging boobs but can my face at least look female?
The female character does NOT look like any female I have ever met (And I have met some interesting ones in my life)
Is it possible to make a female character that actually has some feminine characteristics. Again, not looking for a barbie doll here. The voice is feminine, but the body......bla

All the character models look like Mongoloids in this game. I don't mean their heritage by that either, but rather their mental acuity.
I hate playing such an ugly character

1st, I love this game, and the incredible work the dev's are putting into it. I'll always support it. 2cnd, If this topic isn't important to you, then your in the wrong thread. 3rd, Fact: Most players enjoy identifying with their characters. 4th, gaming cosmetics is a $billion a year industry. 5th, This topic has never properly been addressed by the dev's that I know of.
The dev's made the game quite pretty, so why make the first thing we see so un-appealing and gross? We're Not asking for sexualized characters! There's a few face options already. But they're all as ugly as the next. Blackhead infested gross faces. It can't be hard to edit a couple of the existing faces.
OR, maybe get rid of faces altogether like Astroneer, and have permanent helmets, but with cosmetic options. No more gender/ugly complaints. Fun helmet skins & or designs and colors for our suits maybe,(Monetize it even) Multiplayer games benefit from diversity among the friends/family we play with.
Lol! This thread is hilarious and I 100% agree - all the face models are fugly!
The faces don’t have to move, and you always wear a helmet, so just make the faces a static “application” to the helmet visor. Make it a 100 x 100 .png that you can customize and we’ll slap Angelina Jolie’s or Brad Pitt’s faces in our helmets. Sure, you’ll get the occasional middle finger or butt-faced prospector, but make a “show custom faces” toggle and have a generic male and female face placeholder for the more sensitive players. Forget the modeled faces unless you’re going for nose and chin slider customization in the future.
