Please add this feature to the C-Store. I would pay money for this feature.
As my subject title says, I would pay a good deal of money to be able to change my race and sex without actually starting the game over from the beginning. I already have advanced a certain degree in the game and spent over 50 hours so far into the game. So I really don't want to start over. I know that I can respec. But what I want is to change my character race and sex.
There is no way for me to change my race without starting over is there?
Cryptic has made available to us all these new playable characters in the C-Store. Yet to choose any of them to play we have to start the game over. I really don't want to do that and I am willing to pay money to not have to start the game over from the beginning. Or as someone else said: Not having to raise a toon.
In the rush to play the game I simiply clicked NEXT, NEXT, NEXT without much thought. So now I'm using a Federation Character that I don't really like. I simply picked a female character because I figured if I am going to watch a character's rear end for 50 - 100 hours, I would rather look at a female behind.
Now I'm seeing all these cool playable characters available and I can't play any of them unless I am willing to start over. For example I would really like to play the Playable Federation Caitian.
I hope Cryptic sees this post and gives some thought to adding such a feature to the C-Store. Because until that happens I am stuck with my original poorly, non-thought out, choice.
I too would like to see this added. I've got an alien science officer I'd pay to switch over to an actual race...
An option to change your race could double also a retrait token for people who simply pick the same race again, though a separate option for them might be preferable. This as I suspect that in order to make a race change feature work properly with the least amount of hassle and complications, you'd have to wipe all existing costumes on the character in question, and replace their number one (active) costume with one of their racial defaults. (Until they visit a tailor, of course. A free costume token might be good to include.)
LOL Staring at a cats behind is not an improvement :p
I disagree. Call me a weirdo but I think a feline female behind is just as good if not better than a normal female derriere.
But in response to what Fatality is saying, I can understand, it would be nice to switch races when you wanted to or start a new race at a higher level. I'm running three characters right now because I wanted to try not only different races but also different playing styles two of them are Federation and the other is Klingon. Going through the Fedie intro for a new Fedie character was monotonous because I was a LCdr with the other Fedie before I started the new one and was experienced enough in how the game worked to just ignore the intro and tutorial. Maybe what Cryptic could do is whatever rank your highest character is at, you could purchase a character slot for one of the ranks below that.
For example if you have a captain character, you could purchase anything between LT to Cdr and start out with a Respect token to get the appropriate tier ship at the starbase at Earth.
But that's just my thought on the matter, thanks for reading.
