I'd assume do it the TS2/TS3 way and create some teens with one adult as their "parent" and kill off the adult.

I did this more or less accidentally and it worked.

I think livestreaming is somewhere in the professional gamer branch of the tech guru career.

They are all flagged as "Outfitcategory:Career" but only the black outfit with a white apron is also tagged as "Uniform:Maid". I've noticed this with quite a few of the career outfits. There are multiple colour versions but only one is flagged as the appropriate career uniform. I've not played enough different Sims in different jobs though to see if they actually wear them all or not.

Oh yeah Birthday too, forgot about that. :fp:

Really? If you want to get the achievement that came with base game you have to actually pay for DLC? Oh dear. Normally I'd glad to upgrade (I did for FFXIV) but the pack isn't really great, tbh. Ł11.99 for few clothes and stuff I don't really want, and soundtrack means fuck all for deaf gamer like me...

Unfortunately, I'm the level 10 of the start up entrepreneur branch of Tech Guru.


I don't understand how this activity would be limited to only the gamer branch, though. Besides, how am I going to complete my aspiration if I can't even do the activity?

Doesn't it also includes tournaments? IIRC you can use that or livestream to earn the money to complete a goal on that aspiration.

oh right.

Though regardless, I do want to stream. I don't suppose there's a way to change my sim's career to be set back into the fifth level so I can change course and go with the gaming branch, huh? I don't want to start that career with a new sim to unlock a few items.

Sadly not. You can install that mod that unlocks all rewards from start, but other than that you can't unlock everything with 1 sim legally.

Write and write. Do boring books repeatedly. Do not write comedies. Do a few romance books. It will kick in. (And why not, says reason).

Actually, you don't need to kill any Sims if you don't want to. You can create unrelated children and teens in a Sim grouping. An adult needs to be with them, but they don't have to be related (I just said the same thing twice, but I wanted to be sure I was clear). If you want the Sims to live without an adult, then you have to kill one off. I prefer to put them with an elderly Sim to start out (via manage worlds).

BTW - I owe you a note. Will do soon.

Yep, pretty much. The most boring and most likely to bring about writers' block is the "practice writing" action.

Ow, I'm sorry it's not appearing from you - maybe it's indeed linked to the job? I hope not as that would be stupid, I would love to make teens do that if I ever go back to playing legacy style with aging off
I fired up the game and took 2 pics of my computer menu with my eplayer sim for you, sorry they're in French. But in pic 1 'jouer' means 'play', the stream option is the one highlighted in green ('Diffuser une séance de jeu vidéo en direct')


In the second pic I opened the livestream menu and you can see the stream option for each game:


Two things to add:
*) I'm sorry I said the games appeared in double in the play menu, in fact they are all tucked in the stream menu, my bad. See, I was more focusing on the freshness of the fish in the bowl on the desk ^^
*) The stream option also appears on the huge gaming thing but sadly it's not available on the tablet - that thing is really useless, gosh!

Yes, live streaming is only available with the gamer career, just like you can only write cookbooks when you're in the chef career and you can only have an agent in the painting career. I have found each of these things out the hard way.

That sucks, once a sim unlocks an option due to his work it should stay unlocked forever for that sim; even if he retires or gets fired. Hoping a mod could unlock all the gated options so I could have my youtube uploader addicted teens.

Does anybody know what the "special interactions" a sim is supposed to get with his/her spouse after completeing the love/soulmate aspiration? I don't see anything different.

Livestreaming works in the the tech career (non-gaming). I think you need level 10 gaming to unlock it.

Does anyone know if there are unused objects, clothes and/or hairstyles that were left out from TS4 before its release? I always found the ones left out from TS2 to be very interesting and I'm curious to know if anyone has, for example, seen a hairstyle in the TS4 official photos that can't be found in the game itself?

Oh yeah, I want to know too.

There's this guy who only after my young adult sim had married and moved him it did I know that he was an elder!

The easiest way I've found is to go to household management>unplayed households. Teens are always generated with an adult so you can skip all the singles, when you see a family that looks like it might have a teen go to edit household and double check the age in CaS. Then it's a matter of tracking down that sim in-game, I prefer to move the family into my neighborhood to make it easier.

If you want more teens in the world you can go to unplayed households, pick an adult you like and open in CaS, then add sim>play with genetics to give them a teenage sibling/child.

Assuming you're interested in romance, you could use this mod and just skip the hassle of trying to find teens.

Have your sim "Practice Writing" (not write actual books) for hours on end without taking a break. They will eventually get writer's block.
