The Sims 4 Get Famous Cheats

Raising Celebrity Rank (Fame), Actor Skill/Career, and Public Image

How to Cheat your celebrity's fame level in The Sims 4 Get Famous Expansion
Make your Sim a star with cheats in The Sims 4 Get Famous Expansion

Like all other Sims 4 Expansions, Get Famous has its own cheats. There are a few pitfalls to avoid however, so let's go over how you raise fame, public image for your celebrity and give them promotions in the acting career.

Enable Testing Cheats

How to Cheat in The Sims 4 Get Famous Expansion

Hit Control + Shift + C on your keyboard, then type testingcheats on - this is necessary to do many of the cheats listed on this page.

Increase Fame (or Decrease Fame!)

Shift-click a Sim with testingcheats on and select Public Image - from there you can modify their fame. Freeze fame, increase fame, and decrease fame are all available.

Change Public Image

How to cheat your public image in The Sims 4 Get Famous Expansion
Public image is slow to rise early on, so many will want to increase it at one point or another

Similar to above, this same menu will allow you to modify a Sim's public image. There are 7 levels. 4 is neutral, 5-7 are positive and 1-3 are negative with 1 being the lowest it can go.

Fame Quirk Removal

How to Cheat and remove your quirks in The Sims 4 Get Famous Expansion
Celebrity Quirks can also be removed via cheats, though there is a legit way to do this.

As celebrities gain fame, they are going to gain quirks. It's an unavoidable thing. The best you can do is to try to get quirks that you can live with. I found my Vain Street quirk to be extremely annoying, because the Sim would get tense multiple times per day. The Public Image menu mentioned above can also control this, though it's worth mentioning that you can remove fame quirks without cheating by purchasing a reward in the store. Once the slot is empty, the same quirk can come up again, so make sure you direct your behavior elsewhere so you don't get the same one.

Acting Career and Skill

Cheating to raise the acting skill is a very simple matter of using testingcheats then stats.set_skill_level major_acting 5 for level 5, or stats.set_skill_level major_acting 10 to master it. On the other hand, cheating your Actor career levels, that can cause problems.

If you cheat your career level with an active audition or role ready, you can get completely locked out of getting new gigs. When you cheat the game won't show the gig any more, so cancel it using the phone to get a new one as I'm not sure if the gig will still play out normally. Once you are in the clear, careers.promote actor is the simple cheat to raise your acting skill. If you type it, then leave the text box open you can push the up arrow on your keyboard, then enter, to repeatedly raise this skill (some people don't know about that).

Media Production

This skill doesn't have the spotlight like acting, but it exists! Sims can raise media production using a mix master music station and drones that are found in objects by function > electronics > misc. Raise the skill with stats.set_skill_level minor_mediaproduction x, replacing x with the skill level you want. Note that this skill has only 5 levels.

Befriending Celebrities

To make a celebrity your friend, you'd use the standard relationship cheat. Getting to friendly with them is enough to open up romantic interactions. modifyrelationship YourFirstName YourLastName TheirFirstName TheirLastName 50 ltr_friendship_main will do it. Use ltr_romance_main instead to increase romance. 100 will fill the bar. You still need to interact with celebrities after you use this cheat, likely to exchange numbers.

Drama Club

Children in Get Famous can join Drama Club, in order to hone their acting skills and prepare them for adulthood. You can give them a bump with careers.promote dramaclub - simple isn't it.

How do you make basements for Del Sol Valley? Honestly, I am getting no where with You Tube and utilizing Terrain. I can not get past all these weird spaces and empty places and odd blocks, etc. I just want to have space for even just one small basement and am not getting anywhere with the Pinnacle celeb house.

I'm not sure but I can't get a basement to work there either. I suspect it is because of the way the lot has been made by the devs- it is raised up on a rather deep foundation looking platform already. This might be something to make a bug report on tbh. Official EA Bug Report Forum

Have you got your game in 'laptop mode' in your settings? The terrain tools do not seem to be working with "Get Famous" if you've got your computer in 'laptop mode'. I'm sure they will fix this bug soon. Go to your settings, cancel 'laptop mode', restart the game, and see if that will make a difference. Flatten the lot, build your basement, revert back to 'laptop mode' & restart.
18th November 2018 11:08am
Not the issue for me as I have a PC gaming gig. Worth mentioning for those who use laptops though so thanks :) Also all terrain tools are working for me on every other lot apart from this one.

I had trouble at 'Chateau Peak' celebrity house. What I finally thought of was to build a room on the lot and move it under the main house. It worked! I was able to add stairs and able to normally reshape the basement.

I can give it a try. Thanks. Smile
20th November 2018 7:30am
This issue doesn't seem to be occurring after the patch UPDATE: 11/20/2018 - PC/Mac: / Since then I am able to build freely on this lot, so hopefully everyone else has found it solved too.

I’ve gotten all cheats to work except the media production one. When I put in stats.set_skill_level major_mediaproduction [1-5] it does absolutely nothing. Am I doing something wrong? And yes I have testingcheats true on..
16th November 2018 10:07am
I found out through another site that it works if you dont put production in it.
Stats.set_skill_level minor_media [1-5]
17th November 2018 6:51pm
Hey Stephanie
You are typing major instead of minor.
Its.. stats.set_skill_level minor_mediaproduction [1-5]

Shift clicking a sim doesnt make the public image option appear for me! Any other way to do it?
16th November 2018 1:46pm
Make sure you have testingcheats on enabled first.
17th November 2018 2:59pm
for some reason this still won't work am I doing something wrong, I tried testingcheats on and testingcheats true then shift-clicking I wonder if it has anything to do with me playing on a mac?
23rd November 2018 11:43pm
Definitely could. I suggest trying Bluebell Flora, she's a mastermind on Mac issues: Bluebell Flora for Mac Users who Play TS3 and TS4 (click)

I have a problem with getting the Media Production cheat working.
I have cheats enabled and other cheats works fine.
Any tips?
16th November 2018 3:00pm
Cheat is stats.set_skill_level minor_mediaproduction x
16th November 2018 3:55pm
Ida Merete
Life saver. Thank you so much
17th November 2018 4:30pm
Hi I had the same problem. The cheat is actually stats.set_skill_level Minor_Media 5 as the major skills go up to ten and the minor skills only goes up to 5.Hope this helps.

16th November 2018 6:12pm
The cheat is a minor, not a major. So just replace the word major with minor and you’re good to go.
16th November 2018 6:24pm
This is awesome! Minor correction, chat for media production is stats.set_skill_level minor_mediaproduction x Itested). Cheers for such amazing guides!

sorry this article was amazingly helpful eccept 1thing: when i tried the media production it didnt work i did everything yuo said to also.
16th November 2018 6:12pm
This page will be edited soon..sorry about that. the cheat is actually: Cheat is stats.set_skill_level Minor_Media 5
17th November 2018 3:08pm
Huh I'm confused, why is 1-3 negative public image and it says it's pristine, great, and good, and 5-7 is good yet uses negative words?
I'm sorry if the question's stupid, i haven't gotten get famous though i'm planning on getting it.
