Whatever the form, text or pics, post them.
Because I am, every-time something interesting happens, and I don't want it to just be me. :D

I am finding myself smiling a LOT with this new pack.
Whether its deeper, or subtle game play that I have discovered, interactions with this worlds townies, or the synergy with other packs, so much is happening to delight me. They are probably little things, but I am really enjoying these situations.

And I want to share it because not many are interested on my side of the screen.
This game is getting bigger and interesting things should be emerging as the complexity grows.
How is Get Famous stirring things up for you?

    The Crystal Helmet.
    I wasn't even aware of this thing until I came upon it in buy mode.

    I have 5 sims all living together, going after fame.
    Monique is the only one self-employed, so while everyone else was at work, I had her take her drone to the cybercafe to see if it accelerated her fame points.

    I quicky discovered that sims are embarrassed to wear this thing.
    Indeed, it does look ridiculous, and she caught the attention of some children.
    11-23-18_8-32-22nbspAM.jpg

    They started to scrutinize her, like:
    11-23-18_8-32-41nbspAM.jpg

    "Why is she wearing that helmet?
    Is she supposed to be somebody?"
    11-23-18_8-32-59nbspAM.jpg

    [Gasp!]
    "Monique!"
    11-23-18_8-33-53nbspAM.jpg

    "You are! You are!
    You're Monique!"
    11-23-18_8-34-11nbspAM.jpg

    Wow, gotta give them some autographs.
    11-23-18_8-35-31nbspAM.jpg

    Still, the helmet...
    Maybe changing into her Cosplay outfit might make her look a little more superheroish?
    11-23-18_8-36-04nbspAM.jpg

    Naw, but it was a funny moment.

    I'm just starting to get into it -- the aging bug in CAS held me back a lot, then I had to work on my template Sims. My style influencer is painting on the side to make extra money, and that's what's brought her the fame so far (she's a one-star celeb but is already starting to attract a following; she's learning who makes a real friend and who is just looking to share the spotlight (looking at you, Nancy Landgraab).

    Yeah, that bug gave me pause too, that's why I didn't try this out on my main game save.
    I started a new one, but with some familiar sims that I could still enjoy. The climb to fame is rough for the first two stars. One of my sims is now at 4 stars, Vanessa Jeong joined my household at 3 stars. The rest are approaching 3 stars.

    Video Blog Marathon Fail

    11-25-18_12-43-43nbspPM.jpg

    My sims have two media studios in their basement.
    11-25-18_3-00-31nbspPM.jpg

    Vanessa Jeong was about 10 to 12 hours into a 24 hour marathon related to a [fictional] cosplay event.
    She was full of energy and enthusiasm.
    11-25-18_12-44-01nbspPM.jpg

    And then she suddenly went blue.
    Her Brushes With Fame quirk kicked in. She can only go so long without contact from other celebrities.
    11-25-18_3-15-26nbspPM.jpg

    I can't let her go on like this.
    Kind of odd, since she is living in a house full of them. But, she is doing this marathon.
    11-25-18_3-16-01nbspPM.jpg

    No problem!
    Meadow Thayer is a 4-star celeb that can cheer her right up.
    11-25-18_3-19-42nbspPM.jpg

    And is good for some advice when asked.
    She perked right up like magic.
    11-25-18_3-19-29nbspPM.jpg

    So all I needed to do was fill up her needs and get her back into the marathon.
    11-25-18_3-22-10nbspPM.jpg

    Unfortunately she came all the way upstairs to eat the sandwich I had prepared for her in the basement.
    She was already up the stairs before I could cancel it.
    11-25-18_3-22-15nbspPM.jpg

    So time ran out and the marathon was cancelled. It's nice to have a fail now and then.
    However, it's going to be CelebuSerum and a locked door for your next marathon.

    Judith Ward
    I gave Judith Ward a slight makeover.
    11-19-18_8-17-45nbspPM.png

    Upon my sims meeting her, it made sense to me that they would idolize her and would want to follow in her footsteps in their own rise to fame.
    11-19-18_8-18-05nbspPM.png

    The problem is Judith is really mean and snobby.
    And pretty much doesn't want anything to do with them.
    11-19-18_8-18-36nbspPM.png

    Which makes sense to me since I kicked her out of her mansion and temporarily moved her into a modern Urbanite house in Starlight Boulevard. That would make anyone surly. This made her a one-person welcome wagon when my own sims moved to Startlight Boulevard as well.
    11-22-18_2-07-34nbspPM.png

    Make that the un-welcome wagon.
    11-22-18_2-07-50nbspPM.png

    They met her again while out for a stroll in their new neighborhood.
    11-22-18_5-47-13nbspPM.png

    It was going well until Meadow asked her to act a scene that would earn them some celebrity points.
    11-22-18_5-48-29nbspPM.png

    MORE:
    The audacity of these young people.
    11-22-18_5-47-29nbspPM.png

    Rejected!
    11-22-18_5-52-13nbspPM.png

    They did manage to get an autographed photo out of her.
    11-22-18_5-49-36nbspPM.png

    11-22-18_5-50-07nbspPM.png

    I decided then and there that Meadow would work to make Judith Ward one of her closest friends.
    11-22-18_5-54-06nbspPM.png

    And on that day, Judith would lose her mean trait.
    She will become merely hot-headed. I still want her to be somewhat edgy.
    11-22-18_5-54-30nbspPM.png

    Now they can go hang their new prize on their wall.
    11-22-18_5-55-29nbspPM.png

    Seriously?
    11-22-18_5-59-04nbspPM.png
    At first I thought this was just her meanness, but now I think it may be a bug related to changing her look.
    It would be cool if mean sims gave fans these greyed pictures though.

    Keys To The House [Judith Ward cont.]
    After a few interactions with Judith Ward, I decided to have Meadow give her keys to the house.
    Their social interaction choices were so limited, chasing her around town just to get to know her would be a slow process.
    Now she occasionally drops by.
    11-22-18_9-58-07nbspPM.png

    She has some random hours.
    Meadow had just went to bed when I noticed Judith strutting about the house.
    11-22-18_10-31-30nbspPM.png

    Watching a movie together was a great idea since they have film in common.
    11-22-18_10-32-54nbspPM.png

    It also give them a lot more socials since they can talk about the movie afterwards.
    11-22-18_10-36-52nbspPM.png

    Breakfast at Tiffany's Chez Llama.
    One day Judith called up Meadow and asked her out to breakfast.
    I usually don't accept these because I don't care to treat the asking sim to a free meal.
    11-25-18_3-21-13nbspAM.png

    But I couldn't resist this crack in Judith's shields.
    She's still oozing meanness though.
    11-25-18_3-23-37nbspAM.png

    [MORE]
    Vanessa is still fan-girling:
    11-25-18_3-28-51nbspAM.png

    Seriously fancy food.
    Judith has expensive taste.
    11-25-18_3-34-35nbspAM.png

    11-25-18_3-34-00nbspAM.png

    I was tempted to extend the outing with dessert and chat, but Dinning out always makes me nervous.
    Everything was going so smoothly, but you just feel like it's only a matter of time before things get chaotic.
    11-25-18_3-39-02nbspAM.png

    Aw, she gets a hug.
    11-25-18_3-38-47nbspAM.png

    Alright, this is a breakthrough and their friendship is pretty high.
    11-25-18_3-38-28nbspAM.png

    I think it's time to replace that mean trait with Hot-headed.
    11-25-18_3-39-35nbspAM.png

    Fashion Plate
    Olivia also idolizes Judith Ward.
    11-25-18_12-47-29nbspPM_1.png

    AS a style influencer, Judith is a playground for her creative soul.
    11-25-18_12-48-23nbspPM.png

    She is allowed a makeover.
    11-25-18_12-48-48nbspPM.png

    I gave her and additional outfit for her everyday wear.
    Olivia then took impression for her style board.
    11-25-18_12-55-06nbspPM.png

    Selfies for Simstagram.
    11-25-18_12-58-10nbspPM.png

    So now Judith is merely a hot-head and now part of the entourage.

    Bloom's ARC Readers
    alan650111 Posted a thread saying that sims can now read written books at microphones.
    That sounds like something that I can use because a lot of my sims write books.

    Melonie Boom is my Comedian sim and she supplements her career by writing books specializing in comedy.
    I wanted to give this a whirl.

    I decided to try it at the library in Windenburg, figuring there would be less distractions.
    11-26-18_1-07-27nbspPM.jpg

    Some sims would gather around, but only because she's a celebrity, not because they were interested in her book.
    11-26-18_1-10-32nbspPM.jpg

    Steady there, Cassandra.
    11-26-18_1-11-08nbspPM.jpg

    11-26-18_1-11-35nbspPM.jpg

    11-26-18_1-11-44nbspPM.jpg

    But most of the time it would be like this.
    That guy is the Librarian, and he was more annoyed by Melonie than interested.
    I even went as far create a club to hang out here at the library, but their showing up was hit or miss. Even when they did show up, they would be all over the place, despite having Watch Live Entertainment as their only activity.
    11-26-18_12-54-55nbspPM.jpg

    So I decided to go to a smaller venue with a dedicated club, lead by Melonie--Windenburg's South Square Coffee cafe.
    11-27-18_8-34-37nbspAM.jpg

    Her group is called Bloom's ARC Readers.
    11-27-18_8-13-11nbspAM.jpg

    [MORE]
    Writer's have alpha and beta readers.
    These are trusted people who get first exposure to their written works for feedback:
    11-27-18_8-13-25nbspAM.jpg

    They also have a group called ARC Readers (Advanced Review Copies).
    As defined: "The expectation of an ARC reader is only to read the book and write a review to post (probably at least to Amazon, possibly Goodreads or other sites) shortly after publication."
    11-27-18_8-17-28nbspAM.jpg

    The cafe is their hangout with this private room available.
    Unfortunately the members are more interested in snacks and coffee than Melonie's book.
    11-27-18_8-18-26nbspAM.jpg

    So, I also put a microphone out where they prefer to hangout.
    11-27-18_8-20-11nbspAM.jpg

    Now this is more like it.
    11-27-18_8-20-49nbspAM.jpg

    Since Melonie is a comedian, and her book is about comedy, I had her perform a few comedy routines as well.
    This brings in more sims visiting the cafe, and I believe Melonie got paid 55 Simoleons and also earned some fame.
    11-27-18_8-31-26nbspAM.jpg

    Now is the time to pose for pictures.
    11-27-18_8-32-57nbspAM.jpg

    11-27-18_8-33-16nbspAM.jpg

    Alright, I am loving this.
    This is now a thing in my game.
    11-27-18_8-34-00nbspAM.jpg

    It occurred to me after she left that I should have copies of her books to give to member of her ARC group.
    11-27-18_8-37-40nbspAM.jpg

    So there you have it.
    -An ARC members group meeting.
    -A hangout to have a reading.
    -Comedy routine performances
    -Posing for pictures.
    -Giving (gifting) ARC members copies of the book.
    -Plus all the benefits you can earn from having a Club.
    11-27-18_8-38-52nbspAM.jpg

    That's a nice activity to have every time a new book is written, before it is officially published.
    You can make copies of the book, for those that don't know. Just take it out of the inventory and click on it to make copies.
    Do this before you publish, or you will lose the book.

    @CK213 I know you use CC but I don’t know if you use mods; but there is a mod that makes it so whoever invited you out to eat has to pay and not your Sim. Only works at restaurants though (I’m pretty sure) since you order for table. It’s a lifesaver to have when you’re low on cash.

    Addicted to First Person View
    I am using this feature a lot more than I thought I would.
    I find it makes my sims feel more alive and I really like seeing things from their perspective. I am not interested in playing the game from this view, but I do find the immersion level kicked up.

    I often pop in when my sims go for a jog.
    11-19-18_12-57-41nbspPM.jpg

    Or whenever I feel it might be interesting to see what they are seeing.

    There was some drama yesterday... I took my actor sim and his girlfriend to starlight accolades. My game must have glitched because the event went on for hours and hours and hours. The actor received FOUR awards. Everyone was so exhausted lol. I managed to send the girlfriend home but the sim had passed out already. And to make things entertaining, at the end of everything some random elderly celeb dropped dead. They were all standing there crying. Oh well :D I wish I could post a pic, it was hilarious.

    I think I'm going to have Marcus record a new reality show with the drone. We'll call it Celebrities Eating Cookies. This was the moment when my Sim and Marcus became good friends with Judith Ward. In fact, when I moved my Sim and Marcus back to Mirage Park guess who showed up for the Welcome Wagon? Judith.

    You just reminded me of an idea that had crossed my mind for future game play.
    A reality show based on a household of sims going after Superstardom. It should be a cool way of grooming fleshed out celebrities for my game.

    I had that same idea. Meet the Del Sol Valley Sirens, and my versions of Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Catwoman using content from the base game and all of the packs. They all have the Klepto trait, and they're using the drones to record themselves as they swipe items, work out, fight, woo hoo, and sing their way around DSV and other neighborhoods.

    That rooster sculpture is the first thing they successfully stole and fenced. :D

    I am playing a famous chef right now. I bought him the drone, so he can record videos of him preparing meals at home or do a livestream. He also has the video station so he can upload the videos, edit them and read the comments. It really feels like his own cooking channel. He has managed to accumulate around 5000 followers to date.

    I have a thread dedicated to this, but using Get Famous assets to improve my Cosplayers support lot has been a favorite side benefit of this expansion for me.

    It has added a lot to an idea that was original inspired by Get Together's Clubs and City Living's GeekCon.

    It's been adding a lot in terms of gameplay and story telling for a lot of sims for me. :)

    Roxanne Moxie (famous comedian) was at the spa, since I figured I'd take her out to work out a little since she gained some weight and lo and behold her roomate Misty Waters (Personal Trainer) was there and pretty much made her work up a sweat after she got done with Thorne.

    She pretty much noped off from all that noise and went to swim instead, so decided to invite Misty to do the same. And then she decided she wanted to autonomously skinny dip with no shame and just embarrass her roommate.

    Head back home, so she could refine her comedy routine she was going to use at Orchid a go go not to mention try out some material on Misty and just was not amused. That roll of her eye wonders why she puts up with her.

    People at the lounge seemed to enjoy it even got a good couple of tips from it and some sims whispering about her, since it netted her enough fame to hit rising star finally.

    I had a funny moment last night. My teen sim had been nominated for an award for one of her videos, but it was her mother who ended up winning the award for her acting when she wasn't even nominated :D

    @LadyKyn I really like the skin you're using. Whose is it, if you don't mind my asking?

    My current sim just gave the grim reaper her autograph. xD

    I have no idea how to upload pictures here, so you just have to take my word for it. :P
