  • Landlines in Paralives instead of/as well as cellphones?

    Posted by MagaCarter on February 17, 2020 at 8:45 am

    There was a bit of talk on the discord about if people would want to have landlines instead of or also as an alterative to cellphones. So I kind of created a little poll (I’m not a dev)

    Ways for getting jobs or socialising without a cellphone: letters, landline phones, and going to the park, or reading the newspaper

    Thanks for the poll!. I voted both. And I like that both landline and cell phones need to be purchased. Either in buy mode or at a store. I don’t like how in Sims 4 everyone automatically has a phone in their inventory. It is not realistic. And sometimes a cell phone does not match the life style of the character you have made and you cant get rid of it. For example, when you are doing a homeless challenge 🙁

    I’d like both, but as you stated you have to buy them in build / buy mode.

    I would love the option purchase both for my household – not automatically having all paras with cell phones.

    Yes to landlines! As well as mobile phones of course. I like the idea to have to buy phones.

    Re landlines: paras could have a “business phone” (landline) that is only used for working at home. If there is another landline in the house the business phone has a different ringtone and only rings during business hours.

    I like the idea of a landline too. For one thing my parents have a landline phone. (my mum has a mobile phone too though)

    My dad on the other hand doesn’t use his mobile phone, so if I wanted to recreate him it would be weird if he had a mobile phone glued to him like in Sims 4.

    Speaking of mobile phones, I think it would be cool if there were different types of mobile phones you could buy. My mum still uses a flip phone for example. (I don’t think she’ll ever upgrade to a smart phone)

    Even outside of that I think it would be useful to have landlines for more reclusive locations that might not have proper mobile phone signal.
