Presented by EA Game Changers
We first saw the introduction of the Freelance Careers back in April this year which came with three different trades which included Writer, Programmer and Digital Artist. The Sims 4 Moschino Stuff Pack is the first pack to add to the Freelance Career in the form of a Fashion Photographer.
The Fashion Photographer trade follows the same format as the other trades. Either via your Sims phone or a computer, you can select to become a part of the Freelancer career.
Once confirming you want your Sim to be a Freelancer you will then be presented with another pop-up box asking which agency you would like your Sim to be a part of.
As a Freelance Fashion Photographer, you will be under the Agency Tomorrow’s Style.
But how do you get work as a Freelancer?
If you have played with one of the other Freelance trades or even as an actor in The Sims 4 Get Famous, it is exactly the same way. If not you simply just have to check for Gigs. This can be done by going to the Career panel and selecting the clipboard or again via the work panel on your Sims cell phone.
Likewise with each of the Freelancer Trades, the kinds and types of Gigs your Sim has available to them all depends on their skill level. This is displayed at the bottom of each Gig. Those that are highlighted are currently available to your Sim. Those that are greyed out are currently unavailable to your Sim as they do not have a high enough skill needed for that gig. The higher the required skill the higher the payout will be for that Gig.
Types of Gigs
Tomorrow’s Style will offer your Sim a variety of fashion-focused Gigs. Paywise, Gigs can range from a hundred Simoleans to a few thousand Simoleans. New Gigs are added at 9 am every Sim day so there is always plenty to choose from.
Here are a few examples of some of the Gigs your Sims can choose as a Freelance Fashion Photographer.
|Gig Name||Required Skill Level||Pay|
|Casual and Stylish||Photography Level 1||$488|
|Secrets and Simoleons||Photography Level 2||$1,100|
|Playing With Light||Photography Level 4||$1,540|
|Goofy Party Pose||Photography Level 5||$2,840|
Completing Gigs & Tasks
Once you have selected a Gig, all the information that you need will be under the Career panel of the user interface. It will tell you when the Gig is due by as well as specific tasks your Sim needs to carry out in order to complete the Gig. Your Sims is usually given around four to five days to complete a gig.
If you get stuck on how to complete a task you can hover over the task and it will let you know what you need to do.
Remember, your Sim does not need to wait until the due day/time to hand it in. Keep in mind that a client could reject your Sims work or even want you to make edits to the work your Sim has done. If this happens simply start the task(s) again and then hand in the Gig again.
Don’t worry if your Sims work gets rejected. Simply double-check the task(s) and try again.
However, if your Sim fails to complete a Gig on time not only can it have an effect on your Sims overall performance but will also leave your Sim with an angry client and of course they won’t have been paid.
On the other hand, if your Sim gets ahead, completes the Gig early and their work is of a high standard, there is a chance that they may get a small bonus alongside their payment for the Gig.
There are no restrictions as to how often your Sim has to pick up Gigs. It really is up to you when and how often they work. There will always be Gigs available for your Sims to choose from.
Of course, no career within The Sims would be complete without a few new Career Rewards!
Supreme Freelancer Award ($500) – Unlocked the first time a Sim maxed out their performance meter in any trade within the Freelance Career.
ClickShot10 P10 Mirrorless Camera ($2,300) – Unlocks by maxing out the performance meter in the Freelance Career as a Freelance Photographer for the first time.
As well as these two locked Career rewards, your Sims can also receive increased pay, new features (i.e. ability to use a computer to Edit a photo’s mood enhancement) and also various object rewards.
This new addition to the Freelance career is definitely a welcomed addition to what we already have. There really is so much to explore as a Fashion Photographer and that isn’t just limited to the career but throughout the game overall. Not only that, the new career adds even more variety and flexibility to your Sims everyday lives without having to leave their house.
