What if you decided you want to change your Viking's gender? What if you are fed up of being a boy and want to change to a girl viking? Or the other way round? Plus...  SoD could charge a few gems i guess.... What do the rest of y'all think?

It's okay, but I highly doubt this is going to be in-game 'cause your character basically presents who you are, it's not like you can just change it imo.

Says who? My character is whatever I want it to be, and that is usually not me.

.......... whaa?

Common sense says: Its really your choice. Normally people create an avatar of themselves in online games. It says on the game's description that this is a role-playing game as if you were in the dragon world (doesn't say that specifically, but I broke it down). It's not illegal to create a personal avatar, also it is not forbidden to create your own. So that does not mean you can criticize people who believe, or did so by creating the avatar of who they are.

School of Dragons Bio

I started SoD since June 28th 2014, just a day after my 14th birthday. I have 10 Vikings in my account, each with 20-200 dragons in their roster. My most active Viking shares my namesake, but my most popular and oldest Viking is non other than "Alpha Zero".

I hardly ever active in-game and the forums nowadays, as I have moved on to other games and franchises. I may have lost my interest in httyd, however, I will still make an effort just to check-in on the fanbase.

I don't think they're criticizing people who decide to do that. I think they didn't like the other person pushing that it was SUPPOSE to be that way.

What I meant was gender in this game is like the key what you're going to be called like "s/he, her/him." :)

So? How is that more

So? How is that more important than more gameplay choices? If you are really that sensitive just pick whichever gender you like to be called as.

Did you notice that I agreed but not completely? I have played mmorpgs that players usually pick another gender because of "skill settings" and that's the reason, what we have here is whatever gender you have, you will still get the same benefits as the other, so I don't think it would get implemented right away because we have so much things to get fixed and to get updated.

It’s important because it can give trans people a bit of comfort

 

"So? How is that more important than more gameplay choices? If you are really that sensitive just pick whichever gender you like to be called as."

Clearly someone doesn't realise how bad trans people have got it. Also, changing you gender in game is really not that hard for programmers like DreamWorks. In fact, it's so easy it's laughable. When you select your character's gender back at the beginning, and you tap on either the male or female icon, it loads up the character models, and the girl/boy equivalent of their respective hairstyles. Adding the option to change your character's gender mid-game is as easy as that; loading up the Male/female equivalents and converting the clothes pieces to their Male/female equivalent. DreamWorks are perfectly capable of it; they just choose not to. It's no more complicated than the character editor back at the beginning.

 

Note that in HTTYD 2 & 3, DreamWorks hinted that Gobber was censored.

This is why I never married. This and one other reason."  Gobber to Hiccup, HTTYD 2, Valka and Stoick reunion scene.

 

"Don't listen to him. It's not your fault you have the body of a Norse god. I, myself have the same problem.*Gobber flexes his muscles*" - Gobber to Eret, HTTYD 3, Snotlout is jealous of Eret scene.

 

The only explanation that fits both why Gobber would say this statements is that he was hinting that he was censored.

So, given what I have said, it wouldn't be too much to ask that SoD developers just give their LGBTQ customers a hand. Sure, it may be controversial, but it may be good for their T and Q customers just to help themselves feel more like themselves. After all, you'll never know how bad it can be, because you're not T Q, or so I will assume.

Account One:

 

Nightstrike the Titan Nightmare

​Nightstrike was my First Dragon on School of Dragons

 

​Born: 30th March 2013

 

Since he's the oldest he has a tendancy to consider

himself the boss of the lot. He's the bravest and

most courageous Monsterous Nightmare, and

reached his Titan stage at the age of 5 (25 in dragon

years)

He stands as Leading Ambassador for the

Alpha Falcon Titans. He is surprisingly intelligent for

his... fire-first-ask-questions-later species of

Nightmare, and can communicate well with any

other dragons.

 

Posiedon the Thunderdrum

Poseidon's #1 passion is for ruling the sea,

whether in the air to the depths of the ocean. A

boisterous giant, he makes it clear that this is his

territory, and does not tolerate a single Dragon

Hunter ship unaccounted for.

 

Gemshard the Whispering Death

Gemshard was rescued from the cave incident

set up by Alvin the Treacherous, and raised in

good care. Interestingly, unlike his spiny hostile

brothers, gemshard's spines consisted of a hard,

crystillic substance, hence his name, which leads us to believe

that one of his ancestors may have been a

Crystal Sand Wraith, which puts a whole new

perspective on dragon heratage

 

Apophis the Whispering Death

 

​Apophis, surprisingly seemed to be the literal

personification of what a wild Whispering Death

was... and more! Apophis grew up to be

incredibly sneeky, and took pride and pleasure in

causing havok, (I'm honestly not surprised he got

along with the twins- that is, until he destroyed

their Monstrous Nightmare Gel Bombs), and hard

at hearing to anyone except for me. He does get

along with Barf and Belch though. His name

came to him when I noticed he took a keen

interest in Hyroglyphic paintings of the Egyptian

primordail snake of Chaos, and somehow seemed

to enjoy learning bedtime stories about him...

 

Spark and Ember the Zippleback

​Spark and Ember... those strange two. Spark and

Ember seem to posess different genders of

personality... Which is strange considering both

heads protrude from the same body... Anyhow,

their favourite hobbies include testing who can

make the biggest Zippleback explosion. They also 

try to be the fastest they can, even though Stormflash can easily beat them without breaking

a sweat

 

Celestio the Raincutter

 

Travelling wise, this dragon doesn't cut the flight

speed of Tootless .org the Skrill, but watch him

very carefully, and you might find half a raindrop

on your doorstep tomorrow...EXACTLY HALF

 

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY the Death Song

 

IS THIS THE REAL LIFE? Or is this just fantasy? Well it

feels like fantasy to have this wonderful dragon

around. To honour Fred hideMercury, Bohemian

Rhapsody was named on the 20th June 2019.

This gigantic bundle of joy is known for his habit of 

getting up in the morning... and then following, the

sound of “Mamaaaaa ooooooooh”... I wonder why that

is?

 

Railgun the Razorwhip

 

Stormflash the Champion Racing

 

Skrill

 

​Stormflash is the most competetive Skrill I've

ever met. He is incredibly smart, showing an

ability to understand event the most

sophisticated vocabulary (hey, I read tales of the

Norse Gods, and he understood it just fine). On

those days where we all get a little tired he

even outsmarts me. One time for Loki Day he hid

behind a bush while I looked for him, and he sat

there throwing chickens at me. It was awesome.

Feathers Galore!

When he was a newborn baby I showed him to

Hiccup, and during a long and nerdy conversation

he snuck into Hiccup's Room and tried on one of

Toothless's tails... Obviously it was way too big

for him and he didn't need it anyway, but if I've

learnt anything from my Champion Skrill, it's

that anyone, even a dragon, can dream big!

 

Discovery

Discovery is constantly curious about what

happens to the world outside her nest. Although

she's just a baby, she has already flown solo to

the Edge and back- obviously not the Twins' fault

*Ahem; and unintentionally stolen a

boneknapper egg so she could study it. (Had fun

putting that one back I might say)

 

Here’s your stupid image that I spent an hour drawing, and it taking me even longer to figure out how to use this freaking forum.

Oh my God. This forum is so inconvenient for posting regular and easy comments and keeping up with my clan.

Just... no. This would open the gateway for so many problems. And changing gender? I think I would stop playing.

It's would have been an OK idea a while ago, but it wouldn't work now.

                                  Hi! I'm Mango!                

I am a member of the Resistance.

Launch is my cyber dragon.

 

 

      Jaxie is a fun loving girl who hates pranks. At 16, she came to the school and later was blinded in her right eye by her Whispering Death, Sharktear, forever damaging their bond. Through the next few years, she watched her little sister turn from a sweet little girl into a bitter warrior, rescued a Scuttleclaw egg from the bitter cold of Icestorm Island, and started her own clan. She is now 18, and looking forward to graduating next year.

              Karrud is the father in the Herman family. He met his wife at the age of 27, and decided to dedicate his life to the sea. At 45, he settled down on Berk, sending his two daughters to the nearby dragon school. Two years later, he decided to join the school himself, meeting the Sand Wraith, Tholank, and the huge baby Gronckle, Eggdrop.

(By TosiLohi)

                      Marrissa is cold and bitter towards anyone associated with Berk. She is the commander of a group of outcasts who believe that Alvin was wrong to help Berk and want to continue his "Original Plans." However, she has a soft spot for her older sister, Jaxie, and goes through deep regret every day for leaving her behind.

                 Rescued from Marrissa's Outcasts by the Herman family, Echo prides herself on no longer being an orphan. She first arived at the school on an Outcast ship at the age of 15. Now, 16, Echo has trained quite a few dragons, including her best friend, Sheath. Echo was royalty before the Outcasts invaded her island, forcing her to stowaway on the Snarp family's ship. Due to her history, Echo is meek and plauged by nightmares and hiluscinations. 

             It takes a lot to stand up to your family. But then again, 21 year-old Mikayla isn't known for backing down. Born into the Snarp family, Mikayla had come to accept that she would have to fight for something she didn't believe in. That all changed when her family, the Outcasts, captured a Flightmare. Surprising herself, and everyone around her, she went against her family and rescued the dragon. She then got in contact with her cousin, Jaxie, enrolled in the school, and changed her life forever.

You would stop playing if people were allowed to change their character's gender in a GAME? Most people probably won't even be using it the way you're assuming. They might just switch out one OC for another on their main profile what with the fact that you can change your name and all. It would be easy for people to go "Oh. I would like to play as another OC but don't want to rebuy a bunch of my dragons on another profile. Oh I can change the name and gender and there we go. My other character is now my main viking." That's probably what most people will use it for. But even if people WERE mostly using it for what you're assuming why does it matter? One doesn't get such ideas from a game it would have been in their head already. Plus I doubt you'll be able to see people changing their gender so you don't have to have any contact with it unless you yourself decided to do it which I take it you won't. No one's going to force YOU to do it.

Hmm, I don't really like that idea. Why would you want to change your viking's gender? 

I would like in game that you can make your own clothes and hairstyle (for gems), because now everyone looks almost the same...

In the near future I plan on

In the near future I plan on buying a new viking slot specifically for this reason - so I have a male viking to play with when recording.  But I would never consider changing a vikings gender - clothes, hair style, etc, yes.  If you want a viking with another gender just pay the gems for a new viking entirely.

Idea not recommended

I don't think you should change your Viking gender. This reminds me of a problem we have today about the people who thinks they can change their gender by just wanting to be a boy or a girl (by mind) when to really change your gender, you completely have to reconstruct your body which doing so can kill you (ever heard this?: "Did you just assume my gender?"). It will just lead to a disaster.

The last thing I want is SoD (and the forums) becoming a Tumblr.

This reply has been Edited (3x)

What I'm talking about is people being offended over the smallest things that shouldn't be a problem. The "Gender thing" is one of them by the "Assuming the genders" just because you looked at the body and saying its a boy or a girl (How else do we know about the genders)? And thinking that there is more then one gender? No.

I didn't say that "the last think I want is Tumblr users here". Its a metaphor, ever heard of that? SoD and the forums won't literally become Tumblr.

 

 

...Well, I see here that people are proving me wrong by every means (usually, I cannot find the right words to show what I'm thinking. I make mistakes and I get mixed up with words). I take that as a sign that this thread is better off without me. See yah, got knock yourselves out. Its a free country (my country is).

But it's a fake character in a fake universe. Would it really hurt anyone?

I don't see how a player character's gender can make this game become like tumblr. It's a harmless change of player model, that's all.

"why would anyone change?"

bc there are people who identify as genderfluid and non-binary and someone could also discover that they feel more comfortable as the opposite gender?

 

That aside, I think there should be no gender bc the clothing for both genders is so gender stereotypical yikes

I actually suggested this a while back, mostly for people who may have had a bugged viking or picked the wrong gender for some reason and don't want to start over entirely. There might as well be people who identified as a gender years ago, but no longer do now, but they'd still like to their character to be relevant. ...Or maybe someone just wants a lil' change of PC in the game. I think that there's a bunch of people who'd be willing to pay for a gender-change token. There's tons of MMOs that offer the same service.

Just start over. You can redo quests, get two free dragons when you start! I was going to buy another Viking just so I can redo the quests lol I get bored very fast. So why not just do that? Start over? A lot of people have. My friend did lol

Silver manipulated my subject -_-

Well... Would it really change that much? I mean, your viking`s gender really doesnt count for much... What I mean by that is, you dont get different things by being one gender or another. The NPCs use your viking`s name, not pronouns, when they address you. Correct me if I`m wrong though, but last I checked the apparel isnt really gender-specific... As in girls could wear 'boy' clothes and vice-versa. I dont go clothes shopping for my viking much at all, so I may be wrong... I`m not trying to offend anyone, I`m just saying that to me, changing genders seems somewhat pointless since it doesnt really do anything significant...

I think OP's idea is great. granted you could buy another viking but not everyone wants to really start over from the begining. Heck I did that because I had nothing else to do in the game and man I forgot how long the tutorial stuff was.

 

On the other hand, it's great to know which people to avoid now because of this forum.

Well, they could make it so both genders could wear the other gender's clothes and hair. Ex: A female viking could wear male clothes and hair and a male viking could wear female clothes and hair. That way you wouldn't be changing your gender, techincally, but you could wear what clothes you wanted regardless of gender. Because honestly, your gender in the game makes no difference other than what clothes you wear.

Though I would support the idea of changing genders if my idea doesn't work. Because seriously, why would you care so much if someone changed the "gender" of a group of pixels on a computer screen? It's a game, people.

I like having short hair and in game, my character is female, so if I could put on  "boy" clothes, I could totally rock the game! Great idea!

The only reason I can think that this wouldn't work would be if the actual programming of the game to switch out one type of all the outfits you have to the ones of the other gender might be a bit complicated for a game like this. Of course this doesn't mean it's a bad idea or that I'm against it (my other posts should show that I'm not). I just thought of this and wonder how easy or h.ard it would be to program. I have never programmed anything in my life so that might be why I am wondering.

It shouldn't be a problem, programming-wise. Kinda like how in most MMOs, gear is the same but it displays slightly differently on different genders: it's still the same stuff, but a different mesh depending on what model you stick it on. You got female and male meshes for gear.

Sorry, sjatiddly, but I don't

Sorry, sjatiddly, but I don't support your suggestion. Well, first, there really isn't a reason. There's nothin' really different between the genders in this game, just the same clothes with different styles. The only thing it would do is create more glitches in the game, and with all the complaints already, I wouldn't look foward to that. I mean, they offer long hair styles for boys and short hair styles for girls. So whoever would like to change gender, they could just pretend and make them self look like the oppsoite gender as much as possible.

 

I mean, if people are perfectly fine pretending that a Sand Wraith is a Night Fury (I don't support this, either) when they are two completely different species, then why wouldn't they be fine pretending they're a different gender? I really don't understand why people want to change their gender in this game. Whether your avatar is supposed to be your or not, it just doesn't seem right (sorry).

 

This is just my opinion, just like everybody else's was theirs. So please don't get mad at me for having my OWN opinion. As much as I don't like this suggestion, though, you came up with a pretty unique idea, it's just not everyone really likes it/disagrees with it. What I'm trying to say is, you put a lot of thought into it! ;D

 

I really hope this doesn't offend anyone. :(

It be a waste of pixels, lol. I mean, changing your gender in a game doesn't hurt anyone, or yourself, but really, it be a waste of pixels :3

I have no idea why so many people here are offended by this idea. If you don't want to change your gender in the game, then if it became an option just don't do it. There's no controversy in the option, plenty of games add the option of having a one time free change to names and such, this is no different. Some people picked the wrong gender at creation, some people got a glitch, some people changed their gender since creating their vikings and they don't feel comfortable playing as the wrong gender. Just because you don't understand why people want to change it or you wouldn't have a use for this idea doesn't mean it shouldn't be added; you're all being very sensitive about something that has 0 impact on you but a positive impact on those who want it. 

 

I see this is an old topic, hopefully some of your opinions have changed at this point, but since someone else revived it I still think it's a good idea and would take little effort to add in.
