Something I’ve rarely seen discussed is how to deal with the basic needs. In the sims (typically) we see Energy, Hunger, Social, Fun, Hygiene, and Bladder. I think most people haven’t thought of anything because this is generally thought of as a good model, HOWEVER, we can do better.
I think nutrition/health could play a major role in the well-being of parafolk. Eating healthy foods, regular doctor visits, occasionally working out, etc. How I would do this is add a “health bar” in addition to these needs. Energy, social, fun, and hygiene would remain similar. Hunger would be changed to nutrition and would be influenced by the types of foods/drinks consumed. Healthy food will influence differently than unhealthy foods.
All of these needs will influence your overall health, which will affect the likelihood of contracting an illness, mood swings, weight, etc. We’re getting into real life situations ppl!!!
