Those are noble sprites, which are unique to each noble position, which can be unique to a gender. So yes, you can give a queen a different sprite than a king.

But that only works with nobles. Otherwise no gender specific sprites. As I said, I use a trick.

well here is an Alpha release of some "Naga" people

Spoiler: "Naga" (click to show/hide)

I still need to clean it up and give all them some unique touch but otherwise...
any thoughts?

I found a clever trick, otherwise I wouldnt say so. :P

Create-unit allows to spawn civ-members that do labors. Nagas are snake-people, so they do not give birth, but lay eggs. I gave them "LAYS_UNUSUAL_EGG", which gives a tool item. That is used in a workshop, the spawning pool, to create new units. NAGA_FEMALE and NAGA_MALE. Two different creatures.

Since there is no live birth, they dont need to marry. Civ members will lay eggs even when single. (unfertilized ones, but the reaction does not care)
Wouldn't only one gender appear at embark and migration, however?

Just set [CREATURE:NAGA_FEMALE] to the entity creature entry and hatch males/new naga with meph's decribed work-around. If males are physically stronger completely different raw creatures it makes no difference because the females are self sufficient (and also can't eat their own eggs to cheat for food, thats actually a very neat way of doing things, maybe you should do a total rework for intelligent species eggs in masterwork)

Take kobolds for instance practically the same solution in spawning new members.
