The three base game freelancer options.

TS4 Career Freelancer.png The freelancer career was added to The Sims 4 via Patch 79. Sims don't progress through career levels but instead select an agency that helps connect them to individual gigs.

The freelancer career functions similarly to skill careers in The Sims 3 in that there is no workplace. Sims work on their own time from home, and level up after doing a certain number of gigs.

Good-natured gigs (such as creating art for a charity) will raise a Sim's reputation[GF], whereas bad-natured gigs (such as forging art for a suspicious client) will lower their reputation.

TS4 Career Freelancer Artist.png Electrified Artists Freelance Artist Can a digital painting make you cry? Right now, no one knows. This is partly because many would consider this very idea frivolous. But it's also because whoever successfully answers this questioned must first have answered several others.

Why do we cry? Why do we laugh, or love, or smile? What are the touchstones of our emotions?

Until now, the people who asked such questions tended not to be the same people who created digital art. Instead, they were writers, filmmakers, painters, musicians, they were, in the traditional sense, artists.

We're about to change that tradition. The name of our agency is Electrified Artists.
