Some experiences are definitely life changing. It could be argued that all of our experiences alter our lives to some degree, but some of them make changes so deep that our lives are fundamentally and forever different. Initiating a relationship, getting married, having a child — or suffering an accident and permanent injury, for example. Whether we chose to experience these life changing events, or whether they come upon us in surprise, we must all adapt and learn to live with the consequences.
When simming, we want to make our characters alike to real people, even when our characters are living out their lives on starships set in the distant future. That means some of these events will also affect our characters. We have seen characters start or end relationships, have children or receive terrible injuries. But on this, we have control — we decide what experiences our characters go through, especially those experiences that will mark them forever.
For this week’s poll, we want to know how much you exercise this control. Do you carefully plan every major change for your character, or do you let them happen and explore them as they come? Come to the forums to tell us.
This is a new post in our category Simming Questions. Here we will be asking questions about our community, our characters and our writing, and how you interact with it all.
