I hope that the Paralives' team is not outright copying the Sims. Paralives should have interesting, new gameplay. For example, Parafolk have different needs than those in the sims games (thirst or something more creative). I would love the ability to create teaching groups that would bring money to our Parafolk. A detailed chemistry system would be interesting to see in action. For example, Parafolk consider a specific skill to be attractive. Will there be complex social interactions? I know that the Sims 2 had some of them (the interaction called slow dance). For example, Parafolk can hold hands and walk.
