New features[edit | edit source]
World and neighborhoods[edit | edit source]
The Sims 4: Get Famous includes Del Sol Valley, a brand new world that is based on Los Angeles, especially Hollywood and Hollywood Hills. It is a big suburban area of a city, located near an ocean, and is focused on various celebrity Sims, both new and old. Del Sol Valley includes three neighborhoods—Mirage Park, The Pinnacles and Starlight Boulevard, along with the hidden Plumbob Pictures movie studio related to the Acting career. It has a total of 11 lots.
Fame and reputation[edit | edit source]
Fame is one of the main features of Get Famous and it determines how popular Sims are in their careers. Fame is obtained through certain interactions that gain popularity from certain skills. Sims can also gain fame from working in their jobs, specifically Actors. Celebrities can also earn and manage fame perks in order to gain advantages with more fame and reputation as well as certain boosts to careers, friends, and media production.
Reputation is another feature that plays a part in the public image of a Sim. Every Sim has a reputation, both good and bad, but if it stays neutral it won't have any bearing on gameplay. A celebrity's reputation garners a reaction from nearby Sims. If a celebrity has either a neutral, good, great or pristine reputation, they will get cheers and happy reactions from other Sims. If they have a bad, awful or an atrocious reputation, celebrities will receive boo's and other negative attention from nearby Sims.
Acting career[edit | edit source]
The actor is an active career and the main way of gaining fame in Get Famous. Actors must join one of two agencies to start getting auditions. A.I. Staffing Agency or Everyday Extras Talent Agency. Either agency will send notifications reminding their actors to find auditions and getting gigs to start getting an income. Actors can succeed or fail in the audition. Auditions may be bypassed once the Sim reaches Level 3 in fame by obtaining the "Established Name" perk.
When actors have an acting gig, they must attend to the studio lot and perform their daily tasks, consisting of getting their costume fitted, hair styled, practising lines, talking with the director, etc. When the actor is ready, they can speak to the director and be directed to the main stage. In the main stage, the actor must carry out an array of actions, depending on their acting skill.
