    I am a huge Public Transportation supporter and nerd and I would love to share my thoughts on this topic with all of you.
    There is already a topic on transport by @Shortstuff_ but I think you can take this idea so much further.
    I would really be thrilled to see entire transportation networks in the game! I‘m talking busses, trams, trains, metros and subways, taxis, monorails, light rail networks and so much more.
    And it would be cool to add character to them by giving them some sort of customisation options. E.g. Using build&buy for creating station and transport hubs or choosing the design of the carriages or bus models.
    As to how it works I am thinking of similar mechanics as are in Cities skylines – drag a line (or train track) and you‘re good to go.
    I think this could be a major opportunity for Create-A-Paraworld and the in-game world editing tools. Also in case of creating city centres or town squares this adds so much to realism. Having padestrians walk through crowded areas and trains and trams drive by every now and then would make them feel so much more vivid and lifelike.
    Gameplay-wise this not only adds realism but so many further options for everyday interactions. I‘m thinking of thinngs like: Meeting classmates on the bus to school in the morning and sharing worries of the upcoming test. Doing homework in the bus when being late on finishing them. Meeting a crush in the metro and being too embarassed to talk to them. Finding your love at first sight on the tram to the shopping centre and exchanging numbres. Midnight drunk hangout in the subway back home after a crazy party night. Driving illegaly on the commute to work because you forgot your change to draw a ticket at the automat.
    For people living in cities transportation is a way to live through our everyday stories and I have a deep appreciation for what human value it poses.
    I hope you share your opinion or even are able to add ideas that go even further! ?
    I will be adding some images later for references of real-life transportation infrastructure and architecture that could be taken as inspiration.

    I hope that any kind of transportation Paralives considers bringing into the game are echo friendly designs. As much as I’m a fan of incorporating our lifestyle/environment into the game, there are just somethings I wish I world didn’t have (I.e objects and constructions that emit pollution) and hope not to see in family friendly games such as these. I want to enjoy a game that promotes the best and not the worst of our ? environment.

    I guess with something like this, it all depends on how big the locations will be. If they’re big cities, like as big as cities I’ve seen in city skylines, then yeah, metros and subways would make sense and I’d love to see them. But if it’s a tiny town, I’m not sure if we’d see monorails and the like and perhaps we might only get normal buses. Hopefully Alex will shine some light on how big the locations are planned to be soon.

    Personally, I think diverse eco/non eco options would be really cool, especially if you could have an impact on the options in the world. For example, you could take a politics career and push for more eco friendly options, and watch the world change around you.

    [/quote] Yeah maybe like solar, wind and hydro options that wouldn’t hurt the environment would be great in game.
