The Pronoun Removal Starfield mod is launched from Nexus Mods

Nexus modules have been removed and Star field a mod that got rid of the game’s pronoun options in its character creator. The popular mod platform stood by its decision, despite backlash from a vocal minority Star field fans who have logged into the game’s Steam page and community forum. “Honestly, we’re not sad to see them go,” he told Nexus Mods 404 Mediawith the “vitriol” coming from a small part of the wider mod community.

Another round of reviewers, clearly annoyed by this minor character creation option, left the negative score on Star fieldSteam page, referring to “terrible character creator” and “Politics (if you know you know),” recently on Monday.
