It would be really cool if there is news of whatever Tectonic is up to is revealed at PDXCon this month. I know, I know there’s no guarantee it’s a life sim that is being developed, and I know it’s a relatively new studio so a game realistically wouldn’t be finished or near finished by now. And I’m not expecting it to be the game they plan to announce from PDS. But just a small crumble of news would make my day .

Apparently the showrunners of TS4 are interested in it lasting for a total of 10-15 years. That means at least 3-8 more years of TS4; as it turns 7 this fall. I would be so disappointed if it continued to be the only AAA life sim game on the market for this whole time.

Just wanted to share these hidden features in the sims games.
I'm still playing the sims 3 and have still so many things to discover. If only those old magazines with all the tips would exist so I could more easily discover them all.

I wish there was a reaction icon for "Sadness"

I love that level of detail! The Sims 2 had this as well but in different ways. I really hope if Paradox Tectonic's game is a life simulation game that it will have great details too!

No, I didn’t hear anything. I had the announcement show open in Twitch but only saw announcements for existing games and then the announcement of Victoria 3.

but hopefully we hear something from them before the year is over.

I hope that cities skylines can allow players to import cims from the life simulator into their new neighbourhood which happens to be in cities:Skylines.
