    Oh, nice!!! 😀👍 (I went to vote on Twitter for second question.)

    On the one hand, I’m glad they are asking for feedback about how to do Generations-like stuff. On the other hand, they still haven’t done it yet? Like….When is this game even coming out, then?

    I’m waiting to see how this turns out. I want to see the actual animations, models, and gameplay previews of how the children and younger stages work before I think of getting this game. Family play is essential for me.

    I give it another 2-3 years. Maybe.

    Ah, so it will take some time, then. Plenty of time for me to keep playing the Sims and other video games, hehe! 🙂👍

    Yes, I plan on getting Paralives as soon as it's released (possible 2021)

    Well they did have to do a big slide pack with PAM last year due to legal reasons. But everyone wants someone different with generations and interactions. And there's also the cultural side of stuff.

    I don't know, I love Maxis, but I don't want a TS5 MMO and might have to jump ship and go with Steam's game.

    Well the time has come what many have been waiting for...

    Current Status - January 2022 (soon!)
    - Improving the Paramaker, adding more features and fixing bugs
    - Adding body and face shapes for the adult human model
    - Designing and implementing the animation system and its mod support
    - Creating more character animations
    - Working on the musical direction and soundtrack of the game
    - Brainstorming and designing different aspects of the game

    Looks like Paramaker is being cleaned up and the work for live mode begins.

    You do know this is what they have said every month and posted every month since before 2021 don't you? I had screen shots to prove it month after month but recently deleted them because I needed to clean up my pc.
    Well I'm not really seeing what you say your seeing last year list alone I see what they say they have worked as they showed the masterpiece Paramaker and a 11 minute build mode video.



    Now you say they have claimed to work on live mode prior to 2021 here's what I see no need to save it on a folder it's all on their website one of these were worked on June 2020 the day and night cycle and October 2020 they said they made some basic live mode animations which we got to see the animations like Sebastion taking his shoes off when entering the house, they never claimed anything more prior to this.

    - New live mode feature: day and night cycle changing with seasons (we have seen this it looked so nice)
    - Live mode: created some new basic animations

    I think you may have misunderstood what I wrote. I have said each month the 'category' called Next Steps will say something like pathfinding, interactions, gameplay etc. This has been the same thing month after month for over a year. They never actually get to the 'Next Steps'. It is always pushed back (down at the bottom of their development page) month after month. Next Steps will be actual live mode gameplay necessities and disciplines...they never get to that part of development. And notice they don't have any developer they have named world builder like Maxis uses. None of the people on their team have any discipline in building worlds. Maxis actually has devs who do that and nothing else. (or did).

    The hope for Paralives grows for me, considering how Sims 4 seems not to develop any more.

    Well theres always Little Sim World, very different from both Paralives and Sims 4 but still an interesting possibility.

    Although having said that, its also still in development but doesn't seem hugely more complex than something like Citampi Stories, which is an actual game in release.

    I will just have to wait and see. I will possibly buy both, but only when they're on sale because that's how I buy all games. Also keeping my eye on Alterlife. My hope is that all 3 will release around the same time. I'm also hoping competition will make the Sims better. Before they've had no reason to try to be better, they are the only game (of this genre) in town. Maybe, just maybe, competition will make them step up and strive to be the best life sim on the market. Instead of being the only life sim on the market with no motivation to be better.

    Sims 4 should've been called "The Sims: Stepford Families Edition"

    I have heard of Paralives, but haven't followed the development actively. I checked where it is going now and still don't like the graphics, but the character creation looks pretty cool. There should be some awesome gameplay for me to get interested in it though. And the same goes for The Sims 5. I'm not going to buy anything at release and maybe not even later. I'll wait and see and play my old games.

    I plan to buy both if The Sims 5 doesn't end up being online. I've been following Paralives a lot and I'm excited for the game, I will definitely be buying that when it comes out. I've heard next to nothing about The Sims 5 though, so far. We shall see, but for right now, I just bought two new (to me) packs for Sims 4 and will be playing that game for the time being while I wait.

    It seems like Paradox Tectonic might announce something later this year, which could be a new life sim. They announced the studio about 3 years ago, so if they're ready to reveal their project maybe it's approaching beta?

    That would be awesome, even if it's not going to be released for awhile, news of any kind for upcoming life sim games would get me excited. Unlike the closed lips of some developers who won't even confirm they are indeed working on a new game.

    I'll get both. Sims 4 has been great fun for many years for me. I haven't regretted buying any of the Sims franchise to be honest.
    Paralives looks like it might be interesting enough to take a gamble on it. What I have seen so far, I like.

    This is quite a different situation to Sim City 5 and Cities: Skylines. Skylines blew SimCity out of the water in almost every aspect. With Paralives versus Sims 5, the differences might be a lot more nuanced. It doesn't help that EA is keeping such a tight lid on Sims 5 though. Stoke that hype machine, EA!
