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.

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.

This issue doesn't seem to be occurring after the patch UPDATE: 11/20/2018 - PC/Mac: 1.47.51.1020 / 1.47.51.1220. 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..

I found out through another site that it works if you dont put production in it.
Stats.set_skill_level minor_media [1-5]

Its.. stats.set_skill_level minor_mediaproduction [1-5]

The reason you cant see the puplic image is because either you didn’t enable cheats or you dont have getting famous pack

The cheat is a minor, not a major. So just replace the word major with minor and you’re good to go.

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.

It's just numbering the options. The numbers have nothing to do with the reputation of the sim.

My sim has being nominated for a Starlight Accolade but he has no Fame Stars at all, is he still able to attend? As I think the venue states its 3 stars up to get in
Gravatar
Admin
Playlotsays...
Nope, your sim can't get into the venue unless they bribe/convince or fight the bouncer. Or you can enable testingcheats on and change the setting on the roped doors.
My sims were nominated too but they had to stand outside after even fighting the bouncer didn't work out too well for them lol

Yueliasays...
Mine actually could get in when nominated despite being only 1 Star, although she did win afterwards. When in a group the Go Here Together doesn't work if someone is below 3 Stars, but Go Here on the nominated Sim does.
Gravatar
Admin
Playlotsays...
That definitely didn't work for me. Must be a RNG game mechanic situation where sometimes the game will roll you lucky. Either way it is easily managed by changing the level of fame needed on the rope doors if you're finding being 'locked' out frustrating. I quite like the challenge of having to level my sims enough to get in legitimately for now.

Anybody else having issues with the public image options? Only things showing up for me is add/remove quirks.
Gravatar

All working for me as normal. Maybe a mod you have installed maybe causing this issue? Try saving/quitting and deleting the localthumbcache/package file from your The Sims 4 folder and seeing if that helps.

The only option under public image is changing quirks

Try reloading your game again. if you have testingcheats on enabled all the cheat options should be there for you unless you are using a mod that changes this aspect of the game.

I've reloaded and restarted the game a few times and I took all mods out except clothes when the update came out 'cause they were all broken

Have you deleted the localthumbcache.package file? This is important to do every time you add/remove/update all mods and cc.

The first thing i did was delete the localthumbcache but apparently some other people are having the same problem so i just assume it's a bug in the game

Hi, two questions:

1. When the child is performing at the drama club - how do other family members attend to this performance to watch them? When the game gives you that option.

2. How do you watch the ceremony at 19 where you can be nominated when you have uploaded a successful video for an example?
Gravatar
Admin
Playlotsays...
I can maybe answer 2. for you. The awards ceremony is held around 7pm at the lot called Studio PBP each Sunday night sims-time in game. If your sim has L3 fame or higher they will have automatic entrance. If their Fame level is lower they will have to bribe/convince or fight the bouncer to get int. This may be successful or not depending on chance.
As for 1. I haven't played this pack with children yet so I can only guess but I imagine there will be a pop up when it is time that will allow you to send your sims off with the child when it is time to leave for the performance. I'd also guess this is a rabbit hole scenario.
Gravatar

Emeliesays...
Thank you. However the child-thing does not give me a pop up ability to go to the childs play. I've checked the phone, the map, the computer, to actually click on the sim and so on but it seems impossible.

Dantesays...
Two additions, one of them off topic, sorry:

I have came a cross a cheat that modifies your Fame points in the game, which is super cool if you don't want to wait around to get them. Sorry if it was posted before, I couldn't find it.

Quite easy actually, just type famepoints x where as x is the number of the point(s) you want. For example: famepoints 10. I've tried it, it works for me, that's how I figured out what wasn't: if you level up to the top by having the perk of being able to launch your own "Lifestyle Brand" - you can do it via computer in the game - it lets you pick a name, the focus group you want to sell to, and the product you'd like them to buy, then you press ok, and there's nothing happening, the game completely ignores it.

I've spent like 2 hours searching for information about this bug, but all I could find so far is that it's a known issue, and hopefully will be fixed soon as it is a crucial part of the game, and, well, unusable (as of yet).

When I use testing cheats, it only comes up with "Reset Objects (Debug), Turn into plant sim (Debug), Modify in CAS, Cheat need, Marriage, Scientist and Cheat bowling" but it doesn't come up with the public image option, Why is that? Is it because I'm a Mac gamer.Sad
Gravatar
Admin
Playlotsays...
It may be due to you playing on a Mac but PC users have reported this as well. I'm not sure how to help as I can't recreate this and my game it is all working as expected. All I can suggest is remove all/any mods you are using, delete the localthumbcache.package file from your The Sims 4 folder and try again. Repairing your game may help.
You could also report this as a bug as long as you have tested this issue in a brand new game without any cc or mods EA Bug Reports

The famous cheat is not working for me. Yes I do have testingcheats on/testingcheats enabled entered in, I am shift clicking the sims, and I have tried this with/without my mods and my CC in the game. I get the option for Public Image but all I can do is select fame quirks to either add or remove them. Any tips/references? I did have the options to increase/decrease their fame levels before but it recently disappeared.

Sadly this is a bug that some people are having. I haven't had this issue and the cheats are all there as expected. Sad All you can do at his stage is make a Bug Report about the issue.

I have a question regarding the Awards Ceremonies. If you can't attend, how do you find out if your Sim won and is there a trophy somewhere in Inventory?
Gravatar
Admin
Playlotsays...
Your sim has to actively attend the ceremony and even then they may not 'win' and receive a trophy so you may need to attend a few Award Ceremonies.
