On The Road To Fame!

Ready to become a celebrity? The Sims 4: Get Famous added a ton of new gameplay mechanics. Prepared with a new Fame System, your Sim can now join the Acting Career and manage their Public Image to become a successful superstar! Let's start by talking about the two new Lifetime Aspirations!

  • Master Actor/Actress: Rewards World Renowned Actor/Actress trait, they will never fail a risky acting interaction.
  • World Famous Celebrity: Rewards Unstoppable Fame Trait. Your Sim will never react poorly to Paparazzi, their Fame will never decay, and on top of all that, they get an additional Fame Perk.

Fame System

Your Sim will now have a new bar displaying their Fame Level. Certain interactions will now appear with a + Star symbol indicating that it increases your fame level. The interactions while completing jobs in the Acting Career will have the greatest impact. Keep in mind that Fame decays over time, so you need to actively pursue it to maintain Rank.

  • Rank 1 Notable Newcomer: Allows you to select your first Fame Perk and puts you at risk of obtaining a Quirk.
  • Rank 2 Rising Star: You can now choose two more Fame Perks. New interactions such as Sign Autograph and Pose for Pictures. Your Sim can also throw the social event Celebrity Meet and Greet.
  • Rank 3 B-Lister: Your Sim gains two more Fame Perks, and unfortunately the ability to pick up a second Quirk. Paparazzi will now stalk your Sim from time to time, and your Sim can choose to Disguise themselves at a mirror.
  • Rank 4 Proper Celebrity: Again, your Sim can choose two more Fame Perks. Your Sim will also start to shine now, which you can turn off by clicking them if you'd like.
  • Rank 5 Global Superstar: 3 Fame Perks are unlocked. Can obtain 2 more Quirks. Your Sims Fame will now decay at a slower rate, and your Sim will be unable to drop below Rank 3, B-Lister.

Your Public Image will affect how you earn Fame as well. Depending on how good or bad you are, you may gain Fame for similar interactions. You also unlock certain Fame Perks depending on just how bad you are and what level Celebrity you are.

Acting Career

To get started in the Acting Career you need to pick up your phone and hire an Agency. Once you have done so you can select a Gig to audition for. You'll notice that the requirements are not for acting but for other skills such as Charisma, Guitar, or Fitness. The chances of getting hired for a job you do not have the skill for is pretty low, so best to build on these as well! You will have some time before the audition, where you will likely be given tasks that can be found under the career tab, usually relating to building the skills involved in the job. Your Sim will go off to their audition at the appointed hour and when they return you will know whether or not they were hired!

If you were hired, then you will be given another time to arrive to film. Again, you will have tasks that can be completed to boost your work performance. This time you'll be able to follow along and control your Sim while they work. The better your Sim performs, the more fame and simoleons they are rewarded!

The first thing I do when my Sim arrives on the set is to send them to hair, makeup, and costumes. Once they are ready and have completed any tasks I have them interact with the director to let them know they are ready. The stage will then light up and you will be given different directions on what to perform by clicking X's on the stage. You can choose to do a "safe" or "risky" scene. Risky will award no performance if you fail, but double the amount of safe if you succeed.

The more talented your Sim is the better jobs they perform and of course, the more fame and simoleons they will get from completing jobs!

Media Production

The Media Production Skill allows your Sim to make mixtapes or videos to upload online for fame. To make music you'll need a Mix Master Music Station. For videos, all you need is The More Views Video Station. However having a drone will allow you to record videos in other locations as well.

As you level the skill your Sim will be able to perform new interactions to edit their videos and release higher quality uploads.

This skill only goes up to level 5, but is highly useful for famous Sims who need a break in between acting jobs, without decaying their Fame too much.

Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed my guide! Get out there and show the stars how to shine!
