A Shortage of Male Characters

With the removal of the Game Grumps as usable characters in custom stories, story creators are now officially down to having just 3 male characters available for use in their stories. Even though they weren't usable in any sexual context, the Grumps were at least useful for narrative purposes and to lend a sense of gender balance to the environment.

So, could we please get a few more males for use in custom stories? They don't even need to be functional for sexual content; just basic male avatars that creators can use for narrative purposes would be a huge improvement.

Even if the devs just wanted to add really clunky 3D models as placeholders, that would at least give story creators some more freedom. Or, alternatively I'm sure they could whip up some really quick character models by just taking Frank, Patrick and Derek and giving them new hairstyles, beards, ect. We wouldn't need anything polished; just rudimentary males to fill the gap left by the Grumps.

For narrative purpose, phone call or compubrah can help you, but they don't have physical avatars.

Yeah, I know; and it's not like the game has an overall shortage of characters to conduct a solid narrative with, either. But sometimes, you just want/need a character to be a physically present male.

I totally agree with the request.

With that said, I wonder which character model is used for the taxi driver in the intro.

FWIW, I would totally be happy with characters such as the Doja Cat fan squad who pound on the front windows during the concert. As I say, basic 3D characters are still better than nothing.
