Now, I wasn't going to release this addon originally, since I felt that if I was making the golem female, I should make her look female, and I assumed that that would require hand-drawing a whole bunch of new tile modifications for various armor types, which is far beyond my skill level. It turns out, though, that the upper-body mods used for the golem are almost (if not exactly) identical to those for male dwarf characters, and that Actor:updateModdableTile() has a convenient hook where I can slip in and craftily swap in the corresponding mods for female dwarf characters as needed.
Thus my new Golem Gender addon. Purely cosmetic, but hey, if we can have an addon that makes Ogres look like Shaloren, then why not? The actual configuration of your golem's gender is done in the "Customize" subdialog from the character creation dialog (internally, this is implemented as a cosmetic unlock, but I unlock them for you for free ).
For reference, the drolem's appearance is not modified by this addon; I briefly considered adding a pink hairbow for female drolems, but when I looked more closely, I realized I'd been completely mistaken about where the drolem's actual head is, and that said head is far too small for a bow to be noticeable. I'm sure you're disappointed. Similarly, if you've changed your golem's appearance via the Mirror of Reflection, that overrides any appearance changes from this addon.
