When we create a new character, we put a lot of thought into the process. Some parts usually get more attention: Species, gender, department. Cosmetic details might be given a lot of thought, even if they have little effect on simming outcomes – the fact that the character has brown eyes helps paint a picture, but probably won’t be helping the crew survive on a barren planet in an ion storm.
Yet one thing that seems mostly random is birthdates, even when there’s a whole industry – astrology – currently built around deciphering what someone’s birthdate means to their personality. There’s even some science behind it: People born in summer are more prone to mood swings!
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.
