Paralives Hub Forums Gameplay & Simulation Idea for relationship models

  • Idea for relationship models

    Profile Photo

    Hey everyone! I was thinking that Paralives gameplay would be so amazing if it had different kinds of relationship models, such as an option for an open/polyamorous relationship. Not sure if this would be feasible, but if possible, it would offer an interesting and mire realistic new dynamic. Please let me know your thoughts!

  • You mean like being married to multiple paras at the same time and other paras in the relationship show indifference to it? Interesting!

  • I am open to this idea! this sounds like an amazing idea, and open relationships also make the game more interesting, and I agree, it makes it more realistic.

  • I’d like romantic and moral personality traits to accomplish this. for instance, I’d like to toggle whether a para would accept a poly or open relationship, and maybe choose whether or not they are looking for commitment. then when asking a para to be in a relationship, we could have the option of asking to be exclusive or open. this could make it a lot easier to either form an exclusive relationship or have a one night stand with another para. rather than running a certain number of social interactions, you could just flirt a couple times and then ask if they’re up for it, and they would have a certain chance to say yes or no. if you ask a commitment-seeking para to sleep over too soon, they could act insulted and walk away. if you ask a non-committal para on a date, they could say they’re focusing on their career or something. this could also work well with the chemistry/attraction traits people have suggested. so if a non-committal para started with a 50/50 chance of “sleeping over”, that could increase in your para’s favor the more attracted they are.

    likewise it would be nice to choose whether a para is very moral or not in terms of lying, stealing, insulting people, etc. then if I direct a moral para to do something “wrong” they would feel very negatively about it, for example, and maybe want to apologize. whereas a less moral para would be neutral about doing the same thing.

  • This is not a feature that I would personally use, but it would be nice to have as an option for those who do.

  • This is kinda cool and I’d definitely play with it, but I don’t want it as a default. I just don’t hear about many irl open/polyamorous relationships, so it would be strange to me if it replaced monogamy as the norm in Paralives. I am not by any means saying that kind of relationship is unacceptable or in any way bad, I guess I’m saying it shouldn’t be the most common? If it’s left up to the game to generate relationships in story progression I can see this being overrepresented in-game.
