List of big and small gameplay ideas by Lorna and cakeefeatured
<div>This is a list of ideas Lorna@discord and I were discussing one day and would like to see in the game. So we decided to share them here 🙂
Vehicles and vehicle interactions
Being able to eat and talk/have conversations in a parked car anywhere in the world where there is a parking lot. If paras have a fight in a car they would upon the car stopping would get out slam the door.With conversations between paras in the car they could have animated reactions to conversations depending if it’s good or bad news.
Cars stopping for pedestrians and even stop lights.
Changing radio stations on the car radio. Maybe even having AC and heat during winter summer months.
Having multiple views with of the car’s interior and exterior, in the car to see your paras while traveling: backseat view, front/dashboard view, and windshield view.
Having babies in car seats where older paras would have to unbuckle them out of the car seats in the back and being able to have conversations with them while driving.
Paras being able to kiss in the car especially for dates!
Cooking and Cleaning Ideas
Animations and actions for cleaning and cooking such as: mopping, having piles of dishes in the sink that are unwashed, sweeping floors with brooms, dusting, using vacuum cleaners, cleaning windows, and glass doors.
Having rooms become messy including unmade beds clothes on floor etc. and having to put clothes in hampers or back in drawers after they’re cleaned.
Para’s knowing when to do laundry without having to manually tell them.
Paras being able to take laundry in baskets when they both put them up to dry on clothes line/ or indoor drying rack and when they take them down after clothes have dried. Options for drying clothes could be: clothes line, indoor drying rack, being able to string lines of clothing wherever you wanted including outside of building windows.
Paras have the responsibility to stock up on household necessities while grocery shopping, so there would be a category for buying laundry detergents, toilet paper, paper towels, nappies for babies and toddlers,pull ups, baby formula, baby food, soap for paras to wash their bodies with. Some might not want this feature which we think would be a good option to toggle on or off but it’d be an interesting way to make game-play more of a challenge.
Having clothing,shoes,and accessories disappear from closets or from shelves, when a paras put the clothing on. So whatever a para wear items disappear and if a para notices something of their is missing from their closet that they don’t have on they’d freak out or confront the para who stole. Also clothing could eventually get dirty so you wouldn’t be able to war the same thing every day and would need to wash them.
Business and Money Ideas
Having different brands of the same product would each have different qualities. For example a cheaper laundry detergent wouldn’t have a nice scent nor would clothing feel as good (or clean) whereas a better priced detergent would have a nice lingering scent and clothes would feel more comfortable.
Same would go for food so if you had veggies and fruit there would be pricey organic/local gardened which has better quality and generic mass produced vegetables which wouldn’t be as healthy because of pesticides. Also another example for cereals would be the cheaper cereal wouldn’t make you as full and could possibly make a para sick vs a higher priced cereal with better quality would make a para full and healthy.
Also having the ability to make your own baby food from fruits and veggies paras have at home and even be able to sell it.
Simulation and Household items Ideas
Being able to pull out pots and pans from cabinets, pulling out silverware for eating food, when paras drink water they would grab a glass from the overhead cabinets, being able to set the table or asking children to set the table for dinner. Being able to assign paras placement at tables (weddings and events as well).
Newborns/babies being able to transition off milk and formula would then being to eat baby food instead. Also having the ability to make your own baby food from fruits and veggies paras have at home and even be able to sell it.
Having appliances such as: Blenders, crock pots, toasters, smoothie makers, etc.
Ballet, ballroom, tango, salsa, club dancing, hip hop, belly dancing (non-sexualized but for exercise/competition for teens-elders only) etc.
Group and competition dancing for kids-elders, school dance teams
Ballet being for both girls and boys and there would be recitals and shows
Slow dancing for weddings and couples, children would be able to dance on their parents feet. Other dances like: salsa
Art clubs for students
Once a month kids could bring their parents an arts and crafts items they made at school home
Art shows and fancy gallery shows
Being able to paint murals on buildings
Paras being able to sketch.draw.paint, do pottery, use marble, glass blowing
Paras being able to have collections and being able to collect rocks and shells from beaches and around the world that could be painted on and displayed
Poetry readings in cafes
Para being able to keep journals/diaries and would be able to write different types of journal entries such as: poetry,love letter, a memory,etc.
Maybe some music can make a para happy or sad depending on the songs or genre.
Bookclubs and library memberships:
Paras and NPCs being able to borrow books from libraries and being fined if they’re late, having a wider selection of books at libraries than you would at home and some books wouldn’t be available to buy, some books at libraries would be able to help paras attain hidden skills that you couldn’t elsewhere, if a para becomes a successful author their books would appear in the libraries and stores as well. Teens and kids would be able to do their homework, get help from parents or libarians with their homework, parents helping children find books,students on computers. A libarian would shush paras if they’re being too loud or disrupting other paras and can even tell paras to get off the computer if they’re playing games too loud, libarians being able to tell paras to leave the library if they dont listen.
If anyone has any more ideas/suggestions list them below!</div><div>
Lively NPCs Toggles for Open World
Move in/Move out (yes/no) – maybe this could also be set per season cycle when paras would move but not every day.
Create Businesses (yes/no)
Toggles for NPCs:
Change employment (yes/no)
Change/ buy cars (yes/no) – or limit it to a set number they can buy as a whole.
Build families (yes/no)
Commit crime (yes/no)
Procedural Aging (yes/no)
Obtaining pets (smaller only/all pets)
- #of NPCs seen at different times of day (including lots, cars,walking around the world)
Maybe this could be set on a 0% 25% 50% 75% 100% per each time of day:
Where 0% would be the least amount of paras out and 100% would be max (most busy)
