I’ve been thinking a lot about how the parafolks ‘personality would be made, as this is one of The Sims’ biggest mistakes in my opinion. With that I decided to come here to share some ideas that I had about how the personality of the expected parafolks could be.
I believe that a personality is more than choosing three characteristics for your character. it has to do with how they interact, how they love, how they talk, whether they prefer to be alone or accompanied, among other things. So, my suggestion is that we could choose zodiac signs for the parafolks, since i believe it would be very interesting for the game.
The zodiac signs could have positive and negative aspects about the parafolks personalities (transforming the game to a whole new level, becoming more realistic)
And we could choose the signs for certain areas, for example, choose a sign for love, another for the way it communicates, another for learning and work, etc. As if it were like a astral map. This makes the game more interactive and I think it matches the proposal of the game a lot.
Of course, the signs that already exist could be used but I thought of something new. Create a number of signs that are adapted to the Paralives calendar (we still don’t know how it will work), so 12 signs would not be needed, they could have less, with different names and different characteristics from those we know. With that, parafolks would have personalities with positive and negative sides, making the game more interesting.
But either way, I know the game will surprise us and I’m already looking forward to playing it!6+

Ooh! I like the idea of having zodiacs! I think having an element of astrology would be great but I don’t want the entire personality system to be based around it. I think if it was included it should be included as an extra and not the main focus as I am a Sagittarius, however a few of my characteristics do not fit into the stereotypical “Sagittarius”. I think that it just being based off of zodiac sign alone would make the parafolk too similar as there are limited sign options. However, I would still love to see astrology implemented into the game!9+

My knee-jerk reaction to this was “no, The Sims 2 did this”, but this “astral map” is an interesting idea that is different to ts2. I’m not entirely sure I could get behind astrology in the game, but I won’t completely dismiss the idea either. I like that you took this in a more complex direction, and I’m open to hearing more of your ideas!8+

I know the devs had said the wouldn’t use the traditional zodiac signs, but I think they’re open to making their own version of them. I’d like zodiac signs in addition to another, larger type of personality system to decide the Parafolks main likes, dislikes, and habits. And then the zodiac signs could be added on to influence other ways in which they behave.
I like the idea of it being associated with the calendar (if we get one).7+

Personally I’m really not in support of star signs having an effect on personality. That was in Sims 2 and I didn’t like it there either.
I’d rather you could choose their star sign but it didn’t have an affect on personality.
(Can you tell I don’t really buy into astrology? :p)3+

People would relate to zodiac signs; would make the game more like real life. In my experience with the Sims, I found that a lot of people really wanted me to make them into their sim-selves. This would include their personalities as well. I like this idea a lot!2+
