    Hi guys! I discovered Paralives yesterday and gosh, I’m already in love. One of the things I’d really like to see though,
    is food being sold/used/processed/cultivated in different ways. Here’s a few things:

    Farming (Amateur/Professional/Career)
    So for the idea of farming, I’d like to see/propose a system where people can start farming in their own backyard,
    plant some veggies and possibly sell them or use them for their own cooking. As for the professional branch, perhaps there could be
    some sort of farming business you can have/start/interact with where you hire different people to do different jobs. The farming could include (but not limited to) dairy farming, vegetable farming, wine vineyards, poultry farming, etc. It would be cool to have a rating/certificate system for produce like certified organic, vegan, etc.

    Farmers Market
    A weekly or bi-weekly event that takes place in neighbourhoods you assign to have this event. Your regular farmer’s market with local produce being sold by other characters/families. The quality of these foods are defined by the skill of the farmer/certificates.

    Supermarkets
    Obviously, not to exclude supermarkets, you can buy produce here too, but it is more processed and less fresh.

    What do you guys think?

    I agree! I would love an opportunity for the characters to be self-sufficient. I would also like more farm animals such as cows, sheep and chicken etc. that you could get milk, wool and eggs from.

    A couple ideas

    Ingredients Necessary For Cooking:
    In order to cook/bake, you will need to have certain ingredients for each recipe. For instance, to make a burger, you would need a burger patty and bun. If you add other ingredients, such as onion, mustard, lettuce, and/or tomato, it will improve the quality of the burger.

    Favourite foods:
    Chosen in the creating mode or maybe influenced from gameplay ( Ex. A pal’s favourite food is tomato soup because their mom made it frequently)

    I think it would be very nice to have more possibilities to get our own food, through farming land or raising animals ect. I also think it would be nice to get to fish and/or hunt (even if some people don’t like it but for story telling or self-sufficiency it would be interesting and it could just be a ‘rabbit hole’ kinda where you disappear in a forest and spawn back with some meat to avoid most of the graphic parts) and also maybe some wild gathering such as berries, fruits and herbs (with a possibility for herbal remedies that would have a lesser chance to work than going to a doctor/hospital) .
    Also I totally agree, there should be an option that ingredients aren’t optional to cook. You either have them and cook or you don’t and you can’t cook.
    Maybe the people taking the time to grow/fish/raise/hunt ect would have a better quality of ingredients than people that just buy from the supermarket.
    And/or the possibility to chose the quality sold by a supermarket, as some are more expensive but are technically better quality.

    Supermarkets will be nice to have, whether you can actually go there or it’s a rabbit hole of sorts.

    This reminds me of something they do in The Netherlands all the time, especially in small towns. They set up an improvised, unguarded stall of some kind with a sign for all the prices and a money box in their own front yard. They trust people to take an item they want and leave the money in the box.

    More examples:

    I Think The Farming Idea Would Be Awesome If They Have Cow’s And Pig’s And Chickens These Are Things That Are Lacking In The Sims 4 And Other Sims Like 1,2 And Sims 3 So It Would Be Very Awesome To Be Able To Have These Things And Be Able To Have Your Own Supermarket To Sell Your Produce And Such From And Be Able To Run The Supermarket And Hire Employees Also Would Be Nice Would Also Like to Be Able To Produce Milk And Butter From Cow Milk And Turkeys Dont Forget Those All Vegetables And Fruits And Herbs Farming Skill Should Play A Factor To How Good Of A Product You Produce Whether It Be Planting Or Gathering And Maybe Have A Aspiration To Go Along With Farming And Supermarket Owner…

    hello it would be nice to see cadis crates of food products and non-food as in real life I think our characters could be customers but also the seller would have to create a system esprés and also for the restaurant or canteen to see in places exterieur seen that these an open world because in the sims 3 you can not see in all the places it would be great to be able to do as in real life but better in fictional than you think of my idea jadores lidee farms and supermaches and store organic or agricultural?

    Le traducteur ne t’a pas aidé beaucoup sur le coup, mais je peux traduire si tu veux 🙂 (Ce n’est pas une attaque, ou quoi que ce soit mais juste pour aider, je précise.)

    What Lunalunenewport meant, in proper English (also, it isn’t a mocking or an offense of any sort, I’m just trying to help out) is that it would be nice to see the shopping carts, the crates of consumable (food) or non-consumable products as you could do in real life, and also the characters could be either customers of the shops or also be the owner of the shops and have a function added especially for that. Also for the restaurants and canteens, to be able to see the insides of the buildings/look into it from the outside, given that it is an open world, as it isn’t possible in the sims 3, and it would be great to be able to do as you would in real life but in better and fictional. What do you think of my idea? I love the idea of farms and supermarkets and stores for organic food or for the agriculture.

    (Also, if you do like their idea, don’t forget to like their comment)

    And to answer on that, I’m not sure we would be able to see inside every lots even if it is open world simply because it could make it run fairly slow.

    I love the idea of collecting produce, dairy and eggs. Also, honey from bees would be cool! I wholly agree with idea of being able to sell what you’ve harvested at a farmer’s market stand or even at the grocery store. I also would love the idea of canning in jars. I would love to sell pre-made foods at the market like honey jars, preserves, cheeses, wines, pickled veggies etc. It would basically make it a dream-game for me. <3

    That would be awesome! Also as time goes on you can get mysterious crop seeds or unusual animals as rewards for the hard work. Kinda like Stardew Valley!
