Dominant Genetic Traits
This may be an unpopular opinion, but a big reason that I had trouble moving on from The Sims 2 was the elimination of a complex system for genetics. So this is close to my number one suggestion for Parafolks. Of course, I don’t think that an extremely realistic genetics system is necessary, but I feel like if I have a simulated person with red or blond hair have a child with someone who should only carry the genes for dark hair; there should be no chance for a child with red or blond hair. I thought the way Sims 2 used Phenotypes worked well in this way. I mean, there definitely was improvement in TS4 for skintones, but in almost every other aspect, the Sims 2 genetics system wins out. I like having a child who has a physical characteristic of their grandparent (or even great-grandparent) that their parent might not have shown.
I know this isn’t the most important thing on everyone’s minds for a life simulator, but I feel like anyone who likes to play their computer people several generations would greatly appreciate it. Even if this is not something that is available at the game release, I hope that it is possible to add-in at a later point.
