    Something I’ve been thinking about lately is the possibility of Paralives having something similar to Lot Traits, basically traits that customize a certain lot like in The Sims 4.

    Then I was thinking why not extend this idea further and have the ability to apply traits to streets and entire neighborhoods/districts. (I would imagine that neighborhoods could be set by the player sort of like zoning in city building games)

    So you could have a “Spooky” trait on your street where it’s always dark for some reason or a “Rich” Neighborhood that boosts the price of houses in that area but also boosts the amount of income paras make. (and maybe an alternate “Poor” neighborhood trait as well)

    Then maybe depending on paras personality traits combined with street or neighborhood traits it could give them new dialogue options. For example snobby paras living in a rich district could boast about living in an upper class district.

    Does anyone have any other ideas for traits that could customize lots, streets or neighborhoods/districts?

    I like the idea; it would give neighborhoods character.

    As far as specific traits: maybe a trait for a “quiet” neighborhood, or a “lively” neighborhood?

    Yess!! I feel like this would make for many interesting situations too. Imagine you move a very noisy family into a quiet neighborhood (they play drums at 3 am or something) and they end up getting into all sorts of trouble with their neighbors. People could even start gossiping about your family haha

    I had another thought for another neighborhood trait “Rough” or “Shady”.

    Basically it would be a more downtrodden part of town that increases the likelihood of being pickpocketed or having your home burgled. Maybe graffiti would be more likely to appear on walls. (if that was a feature)

    I feel like there’s room for so much customization of towns with an idea like this.

    Love this idea! I remember discussing this a while ago and we came up with things like rich/poor neighbourhoods where the land prices would be higher/lower, and people might be more likely to judge you if you don’t fit in.

    having an old part of the town (poorer and more lots/lots closer together) and a new part of the town where there is less crime and there are less lots that are more spaced out!

    Also, a historical neighborhood might be cool too. It could add some interesting lore to the game because the Parafolk could learn about the history of the neighborhood.

    Hmmm it would be interesting if separate neighborhoods had different quirks about them.

    And maybe a dangerous neighborhood where more criminals live and more houses get broken into. I would loveeee that for playing rags-to-riches!
