NexusMods has banned a Starfield mod that permitted players to removed pronoun options from the game.
Nexus says that whilst the mod’s removal was “not a political statement or an alignment to one side or the other in the culture war”, it reserved the right “not to host” the mod on its platform.

“Hosting this mod was not for us and it is certainly within our rights not to host content on our platform,” NexusMods told 404 Media.
“It’s not a ‘political statement’ or an ‘alignment to one side or the other in the culture war’. We stand for diversity and inclusion in our community and the removal of diversity, while appealing to many, does not promote a positive modding community.”
“A reinforcement that this has been the best course of action has been some of the hatred, vitriol and threats of violence coming from a very, very small minority of the community,” NexusMods concluded. “Frankly, we are not sad to see them go.”
There are already hundreds of Starfield mods available to download over on NexusMods. Many of these are useful - gameplay tweaks, shaders, and more - but others patch third party characters into the game, such as Garfield and the now obligatory Thomas the Tank Engine.
Bethesda has confirmed a number of “community requested” features are on the way to Starfield, including Nvidia DLSS support on PC, an FOV slider, and more.
As detailed on Bethesda’s website earlier this week, the studio initially targeted a “few top issues” in a small hotfix deployed on 13th September, and it’s turning its attention to various community requested features, which will arrive in updates at a “regular interval”.
We gave the space adventure a middling 3 out of 5 stars in the Eurogamer Starfield review, saying “Starfield pairs near-impossible breadth with a classic Bethesda aptitude for systemic physics, magnetic sidequests, and weird vignettes. But in sacrificing direct exploration for the sake of sheer scale, there’s nothing to bind it together”.
I wonder if they will refund my lifetime membership?
Lol this weird thing this last few weeks where companies say they are not making a political statement or taking sides by doing something woke they then follow it up with a literal political statement and taking a side lol.
I’m not making a political statement here, but all commies should hang.
You’ll use pronouns and you’ll like it! We definitely are not picking a side at all here.
And it is always the same side every time. The side of the freakshow fringe far leftists.
i was so fucking bummed when i found out garret’s a fag

The person playing the game…my imagination binds the worlds together…it was enough to form grand adventures from Atari 2600 games…
I mean there is really no need for the mod, even if you disagree with alternate pronouns. You choose your pronouns at one point early in the game and it defaults to he/she, you have to actually select the option for other variations, so simply removing that option is pointless and rhetorical in reality.
Ya I would rather remove the options where all my companion buddies seem open to fucking. It’s weird.
I roll with the robot because at least it doesn’t want to flirt
Same with BD3 I just killed the vampire because it was so annoying. It’s way too in your face.
BG3 had a legit bug where the approval level tiers for companions to want to bang was set too low.
So everybody was thirsty as hell right off the bat for the most part, you didn’t even have to be nice to them. Gale was obviously the most affected by this bug. I never even had him in my party or talked to him after pulling him out of the portal, and first time I see him in camp at the party he’s all…
Someone at BGS got their agenda notes mixed up. The old, rich white guy is cool and ballsy. The “cool” black guy loves cock and gets emotional about his exhusband.
an old black gay guy who is into psychedelic experiences is a rare bird. almost completely contrived.
Damn. I’m a longtime user/poster on Nexus
Lol this game sounds fucking awful. Tired of all the gay shit and wokeism in gaming.
Until bitter conservatives have a creative thought for the first time, you’ll take whatever the libs choose to make for you, or you can go eat shit.
The best-selling game of 2023 is Hogwarts Legacy, which has grossed well over a BILLION in sales.
Despite a much publicised ‘boycott’ by weak, leftist faggots because JK Rowling is a fascist or something.
