You can change race anytime. Of course, any perk will be lost. I checked yesterday and i fear even changing the simple preset of your character could make him lose his perks. So if you're someone (like me) who every once in a while changes his mind and would like to re-shape his character's appearance and you're not playing with fo4 (where you just need to go to the surgery center) your best option is create or use a race only for your character (i've chosen for example the TestQAcaucasian) and when you want a different aspect editing it from the geck. If you need some heavy changes on the face structure, use a program like the face ripper (the one i have is for fo4, but i guess there's also for fo3/nv).

Stats? As s.p.e.c.i.a.l.? If you mean those, then considering for change race during game you would probably type "showracemenu" on console, you can as well put "player.setav <stat> <number>". Not much of a challenge. Of course you can also put perks that way, but i'm not cmpletely sure about that. Never done that except in fo4. There works pretty well though.

Race menu is broken in many ways, and was never intended to be used in Fallout 3 or NV. Don't use it, use of it is at your own risk.

I heard stuff about it also wiping your quests/quest logs.

About the only thing that comes to mind in making a "safe" way to change races in the game would be to make all the races you want different ages of the same race. The game already goes back and forth on age safely, so that would be the avenue I'd explore.

The problem is that then, when the game forces you to change age, you would change race instead. :lol:
