I just saw a new video about Paralives. You will be able to make any size lot in any shape you want. I think I really want to try this when it comes out.

    There's a lot of things that I've heard are going to be included - it's sounding like its trying to include everyone's frustrated wish lists for the sims. I hope they take it slowly and develop it properly, because if they do I think it could be amazing! I love The Sims, but I'm hoping that a bit of competition will make it even better. And if not, I'm hoping that the new game will do for life simulations, what Cities: Skylines did for Sim City. They listened to what people really wanted, rather than what they thought they wanted, and made something awesome!

    Very misleading. Not even about sims.

    I saw the video too, looks really nice.

    But yeah, this thread shouldn't have been in TS4 section.

    Every little thing that has come out about Paralives has impressed me. Sometimes all it takes is a fresh vision and a little passion about what you’re creating to flip the status quo on its head. Cities: Skylines is the perfect example.

    I hope that this thing gets the crowdfunding it needs/deserves and we finally get some competition up in here.

    Lol why must you all keep bringing Paralives talk to this forum? At least have the decency to put it into Off Topic Chat where it belongs. Am I asking too much?

    I’m sure a mod will come along and move it. And then we can all go back to basking in the splendour of the innumerable threads complaining about Moschino Stuff.

    @So_Money Innumerable? I think that's a wee bit exaggerated ;) I keep reading it as Mosquito *Swats*

    Could you please advertise Paralives, I dunno, on THEIR forums? Or at least in off-topic?

    The games gonna destroy sims if it gets a bigger and talented development team. But it needs people to field each part of game development.
    I don't think as it is that one person will be able to do everything to compete. Just look at the music and other audio like voices in the sims, it would take several people years just to make that. Then you have animation, then clothing etc. One person can't do it all. The developer of Paralives hopefully will get some money his way so he can hire some people to really pump up his vision and make it a full competitive game to compete against Sims and not just a indie game.

    All i'm seeing from paralives is low quality graphics with a really flexible building engine.

    Having a lot any size you want sounds great, but if the game is boring and looks cheap, who cares?

    I didn’t realize they had their own forum, do you have a link to it? I have seen a couple video’s from other simmers.
  • Pamtastic72Pamtastic72 Posts: 1,841 Member
    Yes, please I know you guys are excited but this is The Sims forums, and frankly so far all that's been seen is a few individual cells of animations and that's a loooooooooong way from a cohesive game.

    I am very excited about the possibilities of Paralives. It looks intriguing.
  • BlkBarbiegalBlkBarbiegal Posts: 7,007 Member
    I think I'm the only one not excited about it "at the moment". :)

    That is true. But to be fair, some might say the same about the current state of TS4. ;)

    THANK YOU. The game looks like plum. Oooh, you can put a tablecloth on a table. That excites me. Not.

    I'm interested in Paralives, but not to play. I want The Sims to have some competition so that they step up their game and deliver what we want.

    Hmm I’ve had a look online at a few videos and it looks as though this game will have a lot for builders but I haven’t seen any footage of live mode yet. I don’t really care about the new build features I have seen so for me a lot of it comes down to live mode and what the people (I guess I can’t call them sims) in the game look like. I’m not going to lie, the graphics are a massive turn off for me but I suppose I could conceivably get used to them if the rest of the game is incredible.

    I am seeing a lot of double standards when it comes to this game. Players who say other players can’t judge Sims 4 without playing it seem to have no issue doing that to a game that’s not The Sims 4. Just an observation. Anyone expecting a clone of Sims 4 will be disappointed, but those expectations are incredibly unrealistic in the first place.

    I think what he’s shown so far looks really cool! I’m excited to see more of this game. It’s got a long way to go before release so calling it a boring and cheap game is just nonsense at this point. I’d hardly call a novel a bad book after the author has only written one chapter.

    This is my hope exactly. Competition makes products better. Without competition there is no incentive to make a better game.

    It looks like it will be fun to build in. Maybe I would do that more than play.

    I'm sorry, but the topic title is quite misleading since this a Sims 4 forum :/

    Got you to look though didn't it?

    Paralives just looks really boring and basic to me. I hate all of the flat-looking, minimally detailed decor. I wonder how basic the people are going to look since they have to match the rest of the graphics. Probably like Fisher-Price Little People. :D
