    i don’t know how finished the open world is right now, but i wonder if we have rabbit hole stores or not? i imagine not and it’ll be like the alchemy store from sims 3

    instead of the rabbit hole grocery store/restaurants from sims 3

    if we had a non-rabbit hole grocery store, i would like to be able to pick out fruit/vegetables from different sections? instead of just going up to somebody and buying everything at once, it just feels more realistic to do that

    I definitely want all shops open. I don’t mind rabbit holes for non-active careers, but for all else, nope. That said, I certainly wouldn’t complain if there were no rabbit holes at all. But yes, stores really should be open. I want to see my Paras shop like the Sims did in TS2.

    I totally agree. I want all stores open as well, and ownable/unowned versions of both, so if you want a parafolk to own one, they can, otherwise it can be managed by npc’s (such as a clothing store or grocery store)

    I’d like to see post offices like they could be rabbit hole or non-rabbit hole. But you could send and receive packages to/from other paras from different worlds . and be able to send other family members or friends gifts around town

    I personally never really had a problem with rabbit-holes, but I also liked how shopping worked in TS2. That said, I can definitively hope that I do not have to go through and separately select the different ingredients from different sections of the store. I hate shopping in real life, and to a certain point hate how customized grocery shopping/cooking is in TS3. I think an open concept grocery store exactly like TS2 where you select a fridge or whatever and select the ingredients/amount of food and then take that to the cashier is plenty detailed for going grocery shopping. Same for clothes shopping, etc.

    No I wouldnt like to select every ingredient from the grocery store aisles. But I do think it would be cool to select aisle by category and from there a pop up window would come up and you could select which items to buy that are available. Like Seafood department,Meat,Produce,Deli,etc.

    But as for all other stores I definitely want them open I don’t like rabbit holes personally. I feel it makes the game restricted and keeps the characters in the house too much because there’s nothing for them to do physical and nothing visually for me to see and carry out for a story as a player, but that’s just my personal opinion after playing sims 3…

      You could even modernize it and have grocery delivery for people who don’t like to shop where they can just order their stuff online and it gets delivered or you can go pick it up and and it just goes into your inventory/fridge etc.

    I really like this idea because I think it would prevent tedium while still giving some player control. It would be neat if frugal paras could clip coupons or select items that were on sale and get a little boost for saving money.

    This! The more options the better. I would love to go shopping with them, but if I’m focusing on something else then it would be nice to order stuff online.

    Oooh! This actually just gave me an idea about boxes such as Blue Apron and Plated, etc. So a specific new recipe that they’ve never tried could show up.

    I don’t like the idea of rabbit holes, ’cause I have few control of what I do in my work. If I control everything, I guess the consequences may even be more realistic. The rabbit holes model is too much… “arcade”.
