The Sims 4 Get Famous: Fame Perks Guide

Learn About the Expansions Benefits for Celebrities

A Celebrity in The Sims 4 Get famous hits the maximum fame rank (global superstar)
With Global Superstar, you have a total of 10 Fame Perks you can purchase. Some require a positive or negative reputation.

Get Famous includes fame perks, unlocked as you increase your celebrity's fame rank. There are 5 ranks in total, and almost two dozen perks to choose from. Every single one of these has at least two benefits, and sometimes more. Odds are you will find something that benefits your Sim.

How it Works

Gaining fame and public image in Get Famous (or losing public image) will increase these two metrics in rank. There are 5 rankings for fame and three for the two sides to public image (positive/negative). When you go up in fame, you get access to more perk points. To help you plan what perks you want, you get:

  • Rank 1: Notable Newcomer - 1 Fame Point
  • Rank 2: Rising Star - 2 Fame Points (3 Total)
  • Rank 3: B-Lister - 2 Fame Points (5 Total)
  • Rank 4: Proper Celebrity - 2 Fame Points (7 Total)
  • Rank 5: Global Superstar - 3 Fame Points (10 Total)

It is mentioned on the Fame Guide, but you also get other benefits for rising in rank - not just perks.

Losing Fame

It's repeated elsewhere, but your Sim can lose fame ranks if they do nothing that increases fame for a time. It slowly decays. If you drop a rank, you will lose access to the perks you no longer qualify for, but will get the perk points refunded. When you return to that rank you will get no extra points but will get back any Fame Level benefits you previously had.

Get Famous Perks List

Spend your perk points wisely, but don't worry too much. You can reset them
Fame Perks can be reset using a celebrity cleans (on the phone, $275). Don't worry too much about your picks as they are not permanent. You may start one direction to help you gain fame (the media or skill tree is good for that) then switch to another 'build' later.

When organizing these, I realized there's not a great way to do it. They are broken into three 'trees' so you may as well see the prerequisites. They way I'm listing them, you know if you want rank 3 you need 1 and 2 as well. You get a total of 10 fame perk points to spend, so try to plan carefully. There are a total 21 perks so you can get just under half of them but no more than 2 level 5 abilities due to this constraint.

Media Production and Branding Perk Tree

IconPerk NameFame RankWhat it Does
The Sims 4 Get Famous Corporate Partnership PerkCorporate Partnership1Allows the video/music station for the Media Production skill to grant more fame and money. At times you will be asked to film a video within a certain timeframe, and will receive an immediate bonus for doing so. May require the drone to complete certain tasks. These objects are all found under electronics > misc in Buy Mode sort by function.

This can be used for the 24-Hour Charity Stream your Sim can also use with this Perk (Requires Media Production). Completing a 24-hour stream will give you a large amount of both Fame and Reputation.
The Sims 4 Get Famous Trailblazer PerkTrailblazer4Increases the payouts for the Video Station (Media Production, again). For Sims not using that skill, an additional "bonus" is that Sims will begin to emulate the way your Sim dresses. Well, at least you can help fix all the poorly dressed Sims.

Skill and Career Boosting Fame Perks

IconPerk NameFame RankWhat it Does
The Sims 4 Get Famous Noticeable PerkNoticeable1Skill and Career-based fame rewards sometimes provide extra fame. This can help you to grind more. I'm not yet sure if it provides fame on activities that give none (like practicing) but it's clear it will help with those that definitely do (publishing music, performing in public).

A fantastic ability for creative Sims to gain wealth. Actors get an additional bonus in that they can bypass auditions and get gigs straight away. Very handy for speeding up the process of becoming a Global Star. The Sim can also skip hair and makeup with no penalty. So so nice for avoiding the tedium of repeat actions.
The Sims 4 Get Famous Career Hopper PerkCareer Hopper4Helps you jump several ranks when starting a new career, with increased job performance (and thus faster promotions) as well. If you then quit a career, you can get rehired into the exact same rank as when you left.

The Sims 4 Get Famous Giving Back Good Public Image PerkGiving Back3GoodIncreases all reputation gains, and allows your Sim to donate objects from home for fame. May help you turn money into popularity. The more expensive the object, the more the Sim will receive. It will be worth determining if there is an upper limit on this - no need to donate a $1000 item if the max reputation gain is for $500, as an example.
The Sims 4 Get Famous Rally Good Public Image PerkRally4GreatAllows your Sim to give an inspirational speech, boosting the skill gain of nearby Sims (good for parents?) Your Sim will have increased social success rates him/her self after giving an Inspirational Speech.

I don't know if there's any practical benefit to Trailblazer, but I'm having fun with it. Seems like you need to edit your everyday outfits after you take that perk. I didn't seem to see fans dressing like mine until after I did that, but once I edited all 4 everyday outfits I now see fans showing up in my cc kitty outfits all the time.

There's a post here on the Forum that has a few thoughts about this. Try using your sims PC for options. Look for the Options:Launch Lifestyle Brand($300). Then you should see a pop-up menu where you can customize the brand. Sadly this might be as far as you can get as some people are reporting the customization does not work for them.
