The Sims 4 Get Famous is packed with so much incredible new content, it’s difficult to know where to begin. How do you get your foot in the door in Del Sol Valley? The best way to learn is by jumping right into the action. Get the rundown of how to get started through the eyes of my Sim, Cherish Perez, and her spoiled Yorkie, Paris.
Create Your Rising Star
The first thing you’ll want to do is create your future celebrity Sim. Deck her or him out in the hottest Del Sol Valley fashion. Take your time getting your Sim just right. You’ll be spending a lot of time with your Sim as you help her or him rise to fame. Make sure you create an interesting Sim you won’t get bored with anytime soon. Get Famous comes with a huge variety of hairstyles, clothes, and accessories to mix and match as you please. If you don’t want to spend ages picking out clothes, use the new Get Famous styled looks to quickly turn your Sim into a star.
Here’s Cherish. She wants to be an award-winning actress and has the attitude to match. She’s ambitious, a dog lover, and self-absorbed, which is a hilarious new trait that comes with Get Famous. We have a diva in the making!
Your Sim doesn’t have to live in Del Sol Valley to become famous, but it sure is useful to be close to all the action. Mirage Park is the perfect neighbourhood for an up-and-coming star to get their foot in the door and make a first impression. Choose the starter home in this district or select the empty lot and build your own modest little abode.
Cherish isn’t one to get her hands dirty with building. She’s impatient to get out there and start turning heads, so she moves into the starter home in Mirage Park. After a few pup-approved purchases, it’s the perfect home for her and Paris to start their lives in Del Sol Valley.
Choose Your Path to Fame
There are many ways to become famous in The Sims 4 Get Famous. The new acting and influencer careers are an obvious choice, but your Sims can become famous in any career or skill. You can even become famous for donating to charities. Just look for actions with a (+Fame) symbol next to them, highlighted in green. These actions will build your Sim’s fame.
Cherish has big ambitions of becoming a world-famous actress, so I got her a job in the acting career by using her cell phone. For a more in-depth guide about the acting career, see our article: Getting Started with the Acting Career in The Sims 4 Get Famous.
She signs up with a talent agency and schedules an audition, but in the meantime, she’s free to explore the city.
Make an Impression
Cherish knows that being a hermit hiding inside her house is no way to get famous. She needs to get out there and be seen by other Sims. Your Sims won’t get anywhere by just minding their own business and living their day-to-day lives. They’ll need to interact with lots of Sims and put themselves in the spotlight. Both fame and reputation depend on your Sim getting noticed by other Sims.
Cherish hits the town with Paris at her side to go celebrity sight-seeing and meet new people. Starlight Boulevard is a great spot to look for celebrities and put on a few impromptu performances. Look out for Sims with a glow around them. These Sims are famous! If you don’t like the celebrity glow, you can toggle it off by clicking on the famous Sim.
Cherish attempts to introduce herself to a few celebrities, but because she’s still a nobody, her inner fangirl gets the best of her. She’s too starstruck to put together a coherent introduction. She does manage to get a selfie with a handsome celebrity on the walk of fame, though!
Get Down to Business
However you choose to get famous, you’ll have to work at it constantly. Fame is fleeting and fickle. If you’re not constantly in the spotlight, you’ll find yourself fading away into obscurity. To avoid becoming one of those unfortunate washed up has-beens, continue doing things that will improve your fame. Upload videos, put on public performances, work on your careers and skills. However you choose to find stardom, make sure you’re getting noticed. Get out there and be seen!
Cherish has the right idea. She’s constantly scheduling auditions and landing gigs. As soon as she wraps up one gig, she makes sure she has another audition lined up. Take a leaf out of Cherish’s book and make sure your Sims are always striving for the limelight on their chosen path to fame.
That was a lot of info. Let’s break it down into steps:
- Create your future star
- Move them into their new pad
- Get out there and meet new Sims
- Perform actions that boost fame
- Stick with it! A lazy star is a fallen star!
That’s all there is to it! Be a sociable Sim and keep doing fame-related activities and you’ll be walking the red carpet in no time!
