I would love a nice level of detail with the Parafolks interactions in their daily lives. The example of buying clothes was nice. I’d love something similar for activities like buying groceries. We could see our Paras go into the store and we can look through the window to see them walking around and putting objects into their cart, then they come out with their bags (or a cart full of stuff if they bought a lot), then the entire family can load things up into the back of the car. Then when they get home they can take everything out and we can see all of them putting everything away into cabinets and the fridge. They don’t need a model for every single, solitary item, but just a few ambiguous packs of meat or fruits would be nice.
I agree with the concern of things becoming repetitive or taking too long. So I yeah, a way to opt out, speed up, or completely skip the animations would be nice. I don’t even think everything needs to be totally realistically for time. Shopping can take up to an hour, even longer irl, but I don’t think it needs to be that long in Paralives. Maybe 30 minutes depending on what they’re buying.
