Okay so long story short, I am a guy stuck playing a girl character.  I am not 40+ or overweight. 

 

Basically when online launched, I could not get past the first 'trigger' race, you know the one where it would freeze all the time.  I tried for days and could not get into it, so I made a girl character and it let me in first shot.

 

Now I'm level 150+ and have a girl character, I really want to change it to a guy.  Like in World of Warcraft, for $25 you can change your character.  Why cant Rockstar bring this in?  I'd happily pay $25 to change my character to a guy.,..

Email them at mouthoff at rockstar

I'm also hoping they let us buy additional license plates (I know most people would want that for free - but if everyone had it for free there would be none left)

I would gladly pay 5 bucks to have my person changed because my character looks like a trannie

So long as I keep my cars and cash I don't care what I lose.  I'm fed up of the abuse people give me for being a guy playing a girl, it wasn't my fault haha

I've made a guy character for my 2nd slot, but he is only level 20.  Why do I need to win 50 races etc for the car mod's on that character?  The stats should just transfer over, I don't mind being a low level but I want my car mods!

$25 is a bit much to change a character in a game, maybe $5 charge is still too much but reasonable.

What I used to do was mod a car, get my gf to look after it while I switched to my new character, and then take it home.

But they patched it.

I don't think it's been patched cause I did it after the 1.14 update.

I did too. As soon as I updated for the update, I simply did the glitch. But the moderator in that thread I linked above said that it was patched. Maybe I should test it again to see if it really did legit get patched. Idk, but if it did, then aww man... R* seriously must not want people changing their appearances.

See all the people bitching and whining about the prospect of having to pay for it...?

That's probably why you can't do it... No reason to give people yet another reason to complain.

it's not something they HAVE to do.  It is a choice.  Instead of making it $25 why not make it $1,000,000 GTA$?  Thats a $20 cash card right there

You could go to the hospital and purchase a gender change and/or plastic surgery (which would bring up the character change screen which is already there)

So you could alter your character, with your GTA$, but you had to really really want to, not just something you do every 5 minutes.

 

Email them, your gender depends on it.

They don't HAVE to buy all of the cars, clothes, etc on day 1 of a DLC release either... But, some do, which depletes their GTA cash...

Then, they're on here bitching about R* making things "too expensive" and "FORCING" people to buy cash cards.

Some GTA players on this forum don't get the whole "choice" concept... They think R* is forcing them to buy everything and to buy it all immediately.

I like how people complain about cashcards when blizzard has f*ck knows how many expansions, microtransactions and a subscription fee.

though $25 for an option that would take less than 5 min to code in (hell they patched it so you couldn't do it) ill pass on that sh*t.

If people have a problem with you playing as a female charterer than that's their problem not yours.

 

I made a female char because i already had a male char that i ranked up past 120 and it got boring so i made a new char which happen to be female since i already had a male.

It was most likely closed because in the patch notes it said that they patched the ability to do so.

 

If you can test it and it works send a PM to the mod who locked it and tell them that it still works they will unlock it.

I too have been playing since October last year and I recall being presented 3 times with an option to change my characters appearance. Didn't this include gender as well?
