    Hey everyone! i have an idea about how the setting of the Base Game world could be. Since Alex has confirmed that the Parafolk will be multicultural, i was wondering if this could be reflected onto the base game world. similar to Sanfransokyo (from big hero 6) we could have many different cultures living in one city/town. all shaping the landscape and creating their own combined culture. there could be a backstory (MASSIVE chance for lore here) as to how all the different cultures and Parafolk came together to found (insert settlement name) and how different families (such as the Alto’s or Landgraabs in the Sims Franchise) rose to be powerful and well known. or maybe it just be a town with no heirarchy in general. I think this idea would add SO much depth and lore to the game… what do you Hubkins think?! 😉

    Multiculturalism to kick off the base game is a really good idea. A certain other game was pretty much playing catch up with expansions and updates in order to achieve this. Paralives has everything to gain from diversity, and there’s a richness that comes from incorporating multiple cultures into one space. And I’m always on board for lore!

    On one hand I think lore in general is great and I’m looking forward to seeing what Paralives has to offer in their world. That said, I’m curious about this idea of multiculturalism. Did Alex state what he meant by that? If so, are we talking about real world cultures, or game made cultures? Because San Fransokyo is of course based on real world San Fran and Tokyo, which is cool that they combined those two real world cultures into a unique on for the film, but for a life sim game, I think people would hope for more. If Alex is looking into making the initial town based around some real world cultures, I worry about people being upset at picking and choosing which places get represented and which won’t.

    But aside from that, for me personally, I’m really interested since Alex’s blurbs for the game mentioned that the town will be full of events and lively people so it sounds this place would have a rich history. I’m also curious if we’ll be able to even customize that history ourselves since he did say he’s looking into us being able to make our own holidays and stuff.

    I was also thinking of made up cultures, since there would be some controversy on how some real-world cultures are portrayed. This is an idea, as we don’t know the extent Alex and the Dev’s will take with Multiculturalism. SanFransokyo was only an example for people who didn’t quite understand what i meant, i don’t expect and wouldn’t want SanFransokyo to be replicated 100%. But just to use it as inspiration.

    @Aibas(Ahmed Saddig) Yeah, I think that would be for the best. I hope we’ll get more info on the town soon. I’m really curious about NPCs like Maggie and what kind of people will be living in this place.
