Do Creatures have a gender?

  • Do Creatures have a gender? Iszi

    According to UESP, there are a total of sixteen races in Skyrim - ten playable, six non-playable:

    All other races in the game are classified separately as Creatures.

    For almost all of the above races, there are clear male and female varieties. The one possible exception among those is Dremora - all the ones I've seen could most closely be defined as male, although they may in fact be gender-neutral.

    Some of the Creature races seem to also have gender-specific appearances.

    My question is this: In the guts of the game, where perk and blessing effects are calculated, do Creatures actually have a gender? Are there more Creature races which are considered to have gender affiliations, in addition to the obvious ones I've noted here? Or are all Creatures, regardless of appearance, considered neuter?

  • My 2-cents:

    • There is no ActorValue for gender/sex (strangely enough), so no way to get it directly

    • There is a console command (SexChange) for that, but it only changes the apparence of NPCs, not creatures. Furthermore, it doesn't change the apparence of draugrs.

    Which means that:

    • it has no effect on Creatures
    • it works on Creatures, but most of them have only a mono-gender apparence (even 'female' draugrs)

    Since it can change, I guess there must be a value for it, but I think it is more of an NPC-specific value (as in, value set during creation, like race or eyebrows color). Since Creatures are not generated the same way than NPC's (at least, as far as I know), I find it unlikely that they would be able to have a gender.

    Hopefully, the SDK will answer more simply and directly :)

See: http://uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Races Note that I am not referring to Carry Weight AKA encumbrance.

  • I've got a male Eevee, and a Ditto. I'd like to have a female Eevee so I can have a female Sylveon. So if I breed a male with a Ditto will it always come back as a male, or will the gender be random? Update (10/20): Well finally after breeding my Eevee with a Ditto I finally managed to get one.

  • the line, hook up with a female? Is it possible to have two such relationships at the same time even? And where do the asari fit in the gay/straight spectrum? I understand they're generally considered..., it's clear that I can pursue either sex as romantic options. However, from what I've read of other people's experiences in this area, once the crew figures out your sexual orientation, the opposite gender tends to keep their distance. For instance, if I'm playing a female Shepard and choose to pursue Traynor, Kaidan will pick up on this and take a few steps back, romantically-speaking. So all

  • I was reading the UESP wiki's "Skyrim Glitches" article, when I came upon this gem: Invisible Exploding Fireball Arrows These can only be acquired while on the quest Rise in the East, but once you have them, they can be used for the rest of the game. Near the end of the quest, after exiting the tower on Japhet's Folly, your character encounters a barrage of explosions... arrow in a stack, the game will frequently equip these "Missing Name" arrows next. They act like an invisible arrow that shoots a firebolt, which explodes into a fireball when it lands. When you wish

  • Similar to Using a standard dynamic microphone (3.5mm male mini jack) + a 3.5=>2.5 adapter with an Xbox 360, I would like to know if I can use my dynamic microphone (3.5mm male mini-jack, actually XLR + XLR=>mj adapter) with a Playstation 3, and how ? (it is a slim PS3 I have) I have heard of 2*female 2.5mm mini-jack => male USB adapters, are there any official ones or some known to be working with a slim after the USB-restriction update ?

  • I'm playing a male High Elf, and currently have houses in Whiterun, Riften, and Solitude. All of my Housecarls are female. Additionally, I've noticed that most of the Jarls' Housecarls are also of the opposite gender. (I believe I saw one male/male Jarl/Housecarl pairing, but I can't recall who or where.) Is this generally the standard? If I play a female character, will my Housecarls be male?

  • It appears I have missed the graveyard scene for the quest and nothing I do will trigger it. Hjerim's door requires a key and talking to the guards and people do nothing. Talking to Jorleif about buying the house only makes him say that there's a mess. creating new question as these other questions are similar, but don't share my exact symptoms. Also, it looks like some of them have started them and broken them (because its so full of bugs)
