We get it. Napoleonic armies were made up almost exclusively of men.

It's 1803 - 1815, not 2017. It wouldn't make any sense to have females in any war simulation game unless the game is modern or future.

War simulation game? Perhaps there should also be a random chance that your soldier will have caught some disease in camp before the battle and as you're marching out towards the enemy you just fall over and die before any shots are fired, or you can start with 75% health. The surgeon class wouldn't really be able to heal anyone unless it's just a small gash from a sword or a bullet graze, if you actually take damage the surgeon sends you back to the medical tent where you will rest for a week until you die. Perhaps they should add in effects of being scared or shell-shocked so that you literally can't control your soldier and just hide somewhere until you are shot for cowardice by your own officer.

No, this is just a modern video game, and people should be able to play as who they are if they want. It was fine in NW and it will be fine in Holdfast.

This sounds like an amazing gamemode

Perhaps you could add women in the form of civilian models for some role-playing experiences, but I'm not sure how I feel about going the Battlefield route.

Jeez, guys.
Whenever I geht a game, I always play a female Charakter in the beginning. I build a story around them, and I am usually pretty angry, especially with modern combat games. But here: we play napoleonic era warfare. Yes, there were women in that time disguised as men, but that is the whole point of it: making obvious female characters would turn the whole thing ad absurdum, since theyre first goal is to Heide theire gender.

The "women disguised as men" would have been like 0.0001% of any military population anyways. If added to the game, that static would change to a historically inaccurate 50% or at least 25%

So you basically are saying screw all history because simple game mechanics will always exist. That is a completely flawed way of thinking, that would prevent anyone on planet earth from making a historically accurate game because someone will always be able to pipe up and find some minor detail that isn't 100% right. It is ridiculous to say "oh, this game is about 12% inaccurate to history, which means we should just go ahead and make it 90% inaccurate because screw history, we cant make a perfectly accurate game so we shouldn't try at all."

I want jet fighters in game. Because loophole in history. Plus this small dev team does not have enough on its plate already. Lets pay homage to Political Correctness in what is supposed to be a relaxing hobby. Napoleonic runways please as well for alien spacecraft.

If the developers were to add women (and I don't really think they will), it wouldn't be in the name of "political correctness", whatever the hell that means.

as defined by the Webster dictionary, political correctness is:
"the avoidance, often considered as taken to extremes, of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against."

But surely if they do, it would be for player choice and not for political correctness.
