Help with Being a Video Game Streamer

SimDork23SimDork23 Posts: 494 Member
I have yet another question, lol. I tried to play the new video game streamer career that came with the High School Years pack, & either it's broken in my game, or I just have no idea what I'm doing, lol. I couldn't find any option to post a review, even after I played a game, & when it came time to stream, there was no option to do that, either. I also saw in a video that we're able to choose our sim's avatar, but I couldn't find that, either, lol. The only options under career were basically to find a new job & something else related to streaming but it wasn't any of those options. Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? :D Also, do we have to have the fancy new computer that came with the High School Years pack, or can we use any computer? I did try both the gaming one & a regular one.

    You can find the things you need when you click on the computer and choose "Career...". The things you require are under all that for some reason (even livestreaming).

    None of those options were under career on the computer, though. I should have taken a screen shot, but it basically only let me find a new job, lol.

    Post a review... Couldn't choose a SimTuber avatar (wait... They are really using that name now?)... The career panel only lets you find a new job...

    I have two guesses here:
    1. You have chosen Simfluencer career instead (the one whose icon is a phone with the Freezer Bunny instead of a monitor and a controller). In that case, your sim's daily task is to post a review, which can be done by clicking on an object (woodworking table, snowboard, telescope etc etc etc (other activity objects)) and choose "Make Lifestyle Review".
    The daily task for video game streamer is to make a livestream.
    2. Your game is really broken and I'd suggest you take out all mods and CC and perform a game repair. Through Origin, simply right-click on the game and choose Repair Game. On Steam, open the game page in your library, click on the gear icon and choose Properties, in the window that opened choose Local Files and finally Verify integrity of game files....

    Edit.
    Here's a picture showing both of these careers in the career panel. Does it look like the one on the left or the one on the right?

    You're welcome. Though you can have both of the careers (the pictures I took were from the same sim's career panel)... Though then you'd have to have your sim go to work at 5:30 AM (you can work from home though). It would be a different story if your sim is in an after-school activity.

    Happy simming!

    @EgonVM did both of these careers come with HSY?

    That’s awesome that you can have both careers! I’m excited! Happy swimming to you, too!

    Yes. They were even shown in the livestream. Plus as you can see, both of them require entrepreneur skill, which also requires High School Year.
