    Hey! I love your work, I would really like to see a range of age when choosing a partner. A 25 and a 75 year old can date, its rare but it does happen. A fertility rating would also be helpful, I want to know how fertile my partner and I am, maybe fertility would start to lower at 45. Men a little fertile after 50 but women aren’t fertile after 55. Fertility would vary from person to person, some can even be born sterile

    Love your game, here are some of my thoughts! Have it where your parents have more of an impact, maybe they’re homeless, rich or poor, maybe they’re terrible and they abandon you or have bad influence on you, maybe they’re cool and give you things. Have more recreational things to do. Maybe hanging with friends could have random events like getting into trouble or nice things like roadtrips. Also forcing a job onto your partner would be nice since it takes forever for them to get a job. Also if you abandon a child , have updates on that child. Having more random.events with your partner would be fun too, maybe they’re unstable, they take you on trips, they cheat on you, they have the drug or drinking problem etc.

    Although I really love this game and I am proud and do recognize that it has improved a lot since I started playing it (6+ months ago), I still have some remarks to make:

    1) dealing with Koreans is really frustrating as their surnames are serving as first names and vice versa. For example: if a Korean girl gets married, she’s going to have two surnames (her own + her husband’s if he’s a foreigner) or keep her own surname + her Korean husband’s first name (which is being used as a surname instead), the same happening with their children (adding Korean idols and famous actors/actresses’ names would probably help a lot though lol). And I’m not exactly sure as I have no idea whatsoever about how Vietnamese names work but I’ve noticed that Hoang is being used as a generated first name;
    2) Chinese names should have three syllables (one for the surname and two for the given name) as it’s usually more common, having only two syllables is really weird at the current stage of the game because the names that are generated aren’t really harmonizing (you could also follow the example I gave before and just copy some famous artists’ names, even just picking a list of common names would probably just do it). I would also appreciate if Turkish and Tibetan (maybe Taiwanese and/or Hong Kongese too if you don’t plain on adding those nations in the future) names got added as Chinese names as well as China has 56 ethnicities;
    3) there’s also something else I kinda miss: I remember that in older builds you partner would actually leave you for different reasons, such as they don’t really love you or they cheated on you. It used to make your game really dynamic and funny because you didn’t really know what to expect but now they won’t leave you even if you cheat on them several times; they only leave if you get arrested or immigrates to another country, which is really boring and makes me really crave for it to come back as soon as possible.

    And, of course, I also have some stuff to ask/suggest:

    1) being able to keep having an affair with a specific person you already have been with instead of only having random one night stands with drunken strangers, also being able to see how old your drunken fling is before getting to know them better if you know what I mean ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°);
    2) marrying/dating several people at once just like some Muslims do (it’d also be funny if the partner could agree on it or if we could do it in secret);
    3) getting married to someone with a big age gap, such as 25 and 55 or whatever, who already has a kid and treating them like your stepchild or even like your own child;
    4) sending your kids to your parents’ house for them to take care of but also being able to take them back later if you wish to;
    5) having a fertility rate and also being able to make a homosexual family with biological children by having kids with trans people;
    6) adding asexuality and being able to adopt children as a single parent;
    7) seeing where your kid is from before adopting them and being able to change their names;
    8) forcing your partner to get a job and your children to study;
    9) opening your own businesses;
    10) being able to save the game, as it crashes a lot and it’s frustrating to lose all you had;

    (At first I didn’t actually meant to write an essay about what I think, so I sincerely apologise for this massive rant. I’d also want to apologise if my mistakes are really noticeable as English is not my first language.)

    First off, I do enjoy the game, however the prisoner stuff is exceptionally boring compared to some other things that could be getting added in/focused on more like grandchildren, siblings, the ability to create your own company or buy other companies or sports franchises etc., an actor career, an athlete career. Even a law enforcement career would be more interesting than the prisoner career. I understand there are simply a ton of different things to get done, but I just can’t help but feel like there are other things that would be a more interesting priority than the prisoner career. All that being said I sincerely appreciate the commitment to continually expanding the game and hope you keep up the good work.

    The game is original, funny, almost perfect, but there are still some unfortunate issues:
    Autosaving would be really appreciated when I have to leave game due to call or other reasons
    When reaching later ages the game is going to stuck due to more and more information, buttons react slower and slower – maybe to create automatic decade summary would help
    When I reached the end of text field I could not see last ten years of my life – again summary function would help
    But as I said this is one of best games I have ever played on Android, very good job, guys!

    I would really like a military career where if your country gets involved in a war you are deployed into the war and have to fight and have a chance of dying. In a life I got a pop-up that said that ufos attacked Vietnam, I was really hoping for a war with aliens but that didn’t happen I really want it. A criminal career where you can rob banks, become a hitman, or you can just do illegal stuff like steal a car if you don’t have one. Athlete career with different branches which would be what sport you play ex: Baseball, American Football, Soccer/football, stuff like that. How wealthy your parents are. The ability to control events like a earthquake, a war and who gets involved if you want. The ability to make inventions. Politics career. Pets.

    Hey, I really love your game; but I have some suggestions:

    – Maybe there should be a miscarriage action, to make the game more realistic.

    – And the parents should be upset if their teenage son or daughter end up getting pregnant or getting someone pregnant.

    – If you’re a teenager and get an abortion maybe there should bullies who pick on them about it?

    – When you’re in the music industry, you should be able to do collaborations with other artists.

    – You choose what college to attend.

    – Maybethe time should go by, by months and not years and you choose your birthday.

I wanted to make a sugestion maybe add a criminal career its not very fun to only be able to goto jail because of a crime scene investigation or assault… And also maybe a murder function maybe like a serial killer or maybe even a cop or political career. Just suggestions but i would love to see this game become the best life simulator ever i believe if you make a few interesting careers it would make the game better than majority if not the best itsself. Keep up the great work love the game.

    Love the game. Have been playing it for a few months now and it keeps getting better and better. A few things I wish would have been solved by now: Asian names are in the opposite order, but are treated wrong in the game. All children have the same name (but it’s really the last name). And what about fertility and miscarriages… However, great game, and I look forward to new updates!

    I finally had a character escape from North Korea without dying! #goals

    Sometimes your character is horn with very low intelligence. Even though you have them study in their free time from the age of 6, they only graduate from primary school with grade D. So you can’t have them study further or get a well paying job. IRL there are night schools and tutors and schools for adults who need to read up on some courses to further their studies. I wish this was available in the game as well. Hope you take my suggestions seriously, cause they are and I love the game.

    I’ve spent several lives (dozens, in fact) trying to get a transgender character, but it never actually comes up. If you can choose your sexuality, then shouldn’t you be able to choose your gender (after about age 12, perhaps?) Either that or you don’t pick your sexuality, you find out between the ages of 8 and 16 or whenever, with potentially disapproving parents who abandon you.

And a big shout out to all the impatient people behind us on the palm coast exit ramp honking to get goingway to be safe.

    I feel like the updates don’t do much to progress the game anymore, every second or third comment I read here says the same thing, new careers. You tend to take on improvements that you want to rather than what the users do. Remember, the customer is always right. Who knows put some more effort into it and people might actually start downloading your game again.

  • A.M.

    Hello. I have a few ideas that would make this game even more awesome then it already is.

    1. Add mental illnesses or diagnosed at birth type of things. Like if you want your character to be autistic or have a skin condition. That sorta thing that you can do while making a custom character or when you get a random one.

    2. The ability to customize your character’s stats (their appearance and happiness) at the beginning. Some kids start out as unhappy ones so it’d be interesting if we could start out depressed then eventually be happy. Tye appearance could be changed if you want your character to start out as a model or something because that does happen. The game may be fiction but it can be realistic.
    Aaaaaannnndddd
    3. More options for everything. It’d be awesome if we could have so many more choices. Like the option to make the perfect partner or to make your own parents.

    I see potential in this game, although it would be nice if there was a few more restrictions, seeing as you can currently:
    -Have 8 degrees
    -Front 3 bands, all of whom tour at least once a year, AND at least two of whom can release an album every year
    -Produce three-figure paintings
    -Become a doctor, or leave that behind to become the CEO of a software company
    -Own multiple cars/houses (and have the occasional frog thrown at them)
    -Have multiple children (unless your testicles get inverted, in which case you MAY become infertile)

    All at the same time, which can be fun, but also is kind of like “how have the fbi not kidnapped me to perform experiments on my brain yet?” I’d definitely rather see more variety in each individual role, as opposed to you just being able to do everything, all the time, but without much actually going on.

    Still, again, it has potential, and I’m looking forward to future updates.

    ** side note: my last playthrough had a bit of a game-ending bug. I got in a fight, defended myself, may have ACCIDENTALLY severed their brain, ended up jailed for 9 years for manslaughter. Not so bad, except somewhere the game got confused with 3 years remaining on my sentence. There was no way around this, the sentence never went down, appealing wasn’t an option, and I couldn’t escape (<- I only attempted after the first decade passed). I ended up spending 40+ years in jail, and the character died there.

    Not if/where you guys do bug reports, but I thought I'd mention it
