I have noticed that when some human Medic NPCs are hired from Tatooine, they are listed as male gender, but start with female avatars. Also, the human medics give the owner the option of selecting a male or female avatar when editing the NPC. I know that you can specify gender when you hire, but when selling them, it is very easy to mistake male for female especially when a male NPC has a female avatar (sometimes a very big deal depending on the buyer) . Is this an intended feature, or a bug?
I have encountered this situtation twice with Human medic NPCs hired from Tatooine.
Male NPCs should not be able to have female NPC avatars (and vice versa), so if that is the case, that sounds like a bug for the bug base. On the other hand, if you are simply mistaking a male for a female, that's an entirely different issue and probably just means you will need to become more familiar with the individual images for NPCs.
