All characters we can encounter, both in simming and in other kinds of fiction, are partly defined by a large number of relationships they have. Friends, lovers, coworkers… and family. If we think back to Star Trek, we can remember several characters with differing relationships with their families.
Some had not talked to them in a long time, while others did regularly. Some had their families living far, possibly in their home planet, but maybe elsewhere, whereas some had their families living with them in their quarters. Some had close relationships, while others were distant, even confrontational.
And these family relationships were also defining for characters, with some even having turning points in their lives that were either affected by their families, or affected the way they interacted with their family.
The same happens to our characters. Some have their families close by, while others have them far away in their home planets. And some sim them regularly, while some almost never interact with them. Which are you?
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.
