Even if you are proficient The Sims 4Various job options, Interior decoration The paths added in the Dream Home Decorator game pack may have some features that you are not familiar with. in particular, Odd job This class includes more direct player control than previously added.
Although the new performance will not contain too many new elements, you will use construction patterns and photography skills in a slightly new way, as well as manage performance budgets and organize dramatic “shows” to show your hard work to your Sim customers.
Here is everything you need to know to perform performance tasks in The Sims 4: Dream Home Decor.
How to send customers away in “The Sims 4: Dream Home Decor”
The performance of the interior decorator is scheduled by the social task. After you start your career as an interior designer, you first use the social menu to interview customers about their likes and dislikes, and end with revealing your hard work.
However, in order to actually perform the main part of the show, you need the client to leave the property. After all, it would be difficult for them to sit on the sofa to renovate the living room.
After you know all the information about customer preferences, use Send customers away Social interaction gently guides the entire family away from this lot. They will stay away until you call them back (or the show time runs out).
You won’t be able to access the build mode on their property until you send the customer away, so this step (although not an actual Gig task) is very important.
How to take before and after photos in The Sims 4: Fantasy Home Decor
Before and after taking photos are two separate tasks that you must complete to complete the show.Choice taken Before the photo You can use it after sending the customer away.
you can use it Entertainment> Photo The options on the Sim phone are just like in a normal game.But alternatively, during an active interior designer’s performance, you can click on the floor and select Interior designer> Before and after photos From the options menu.
When taking before and after photos, you have the usual photography options: you can apply filters, flip the camera, and take up to five versions of each photo. You also seem to pan and zoom more freely than usual to compose the shot exactly to your liking, thus avoiding the hassle of multiple attempts to set the correct lens.
After completing your renovation project, you need to take After the photoIdeally, these match the area you used for the previous photos at the beginning of the renovation, but as far as I know, this is not actually tracked in any way that affects the performance score, so don’t worry about queuing exactly.
Once you have all the before and after photos you need, there is another step not mentioned in the performance task list. Go to your Sim’s inventory and click on the memory card. You will see options to manage the photos of the current show.
Click this option to open a pop-up window where you can match the photos before and after shooting. Pairing previous photos with subsequent photos will give them a shared number, indicating that you think they are “before and after” photos in the same area. You can also use this time to delete any photos you don’t want to be included in the slideshow.
However, if you forget to do so, don’t worry; you will be prompted to arrange and complete the slides before the large-scale presentation.
How to use the construction mode during the performance of “The Sims 4: Dream Home Decor”
Unlike any other active career in The Sims 4, the interior designer career requires you to perform some tasks outside of live mode.As the whole theme of the package implies, you will actually do most of the renovation work Construction mode.
You can enter the construction mode only after the customer leaves the lot. Entering this mode will pause the game in real-time mode, just like in a normal game.
In the upper left corner of the screen, you will see the batch details panel, which now contains a new Gig Details tab, where you can track refurbishment items in this mode.
On this panel, you can view the performance description and expenses; dynamic tags of how much you spent in your budget; and the likes and dislikes of customers that you discovered during the social phase at the beginning of the performance.
Below this information, you will also see a list of requirements. These are not always mentioned elsewhere, and include some restrictions, such as parts of the building that the customer does not particularly want to change in any way. Later in your Sim’s career, you may see details such as brand deals listed here, which require you to include items from a specific game company when refurbishing.
When entering and exiting the build mode for the first time during the performance, the game will consider the renovation task completed. It will be marked from your task list and the option to take a photo will appear. However, you don’t have to stop refurbishing at that time, and you can freely re-enter the build mode during the performance based on how often you want to make further changes.
How to manage performance budgets in “The Sims 4: Dream Home Decor”
Another feature that makes the job of an interior decorator slightly different from other similar occupations is budget.
Other show-based careers assume that your active Sims pay out of their pockets for any expenses they may incur. For interior decorators, this is not the case, they have received a large amount of change from the client to carry out the renovation.
There are two ways to track your remaining budget during the show.The first one is located in the parcel information panel in the upper left corner of the screen, where you can view the amount spent so far and the total amount remaining Client budget title.
If you look at the lower left corner of the screen, you will see that your active Sim’s family funds have been temporarily replaced by temporary funds. This will show you the actual budget amount remaining. Unlike ordinary gameplay, you can invest negative funds during the show and continue to buy things-but exceeding your budget too much will have a negative impact on your work performance and reputation.
Although the management budget does not directly affect any performance tasks, it has a significant impact on the overall performance of the performance.
How to increase your performance budget
During the performance, there are a few things you can do to increase your budget:
- Sell any client property you want to replace, as this will add the value of the item back to the performance fund. However, you can only replenish your budget to the original maximum; therefore, to make the most of this, make sure you only sell items after you have collected the full value.
- Remember that using the design tool (represented by the third example card icon from the left in the top menu bar) is free to recolor the items you already own. This includes replacing walls and floors with the same covering in different color samples.
It is easy to keep simple design updates within budget in this way. However, at higher levels, things get trickier-especially if your task is to make major renovations, such as adding additional rooms and levels. So don’t neglect your budget management skills, even if you have been under budget for the first few performances.
How to complete the secrets in “The Sims 4: Dream Home Decor”
Once you have completed the decoration to your satisfaction and took all the photos, it is time to complete the last task of the show: Reveal.
First, you need to call the customer back to the batch. You can do this under the Social tab on your Sim phone, or you can directly click the customer avatar in the “Relations” panel. Before the customer arrives, the system will prompt you to organize the before and after photos and be ready.
The customer’s family members will immediately return to the lot and carry out a targeted activity called “The Reveal!” Will begin.At this point, you will not be able to interact with the client, except Show the decoration to customers Social connection. Start this operation to start and view a very sweet slideshow of your photos, and set up some exciting music.
Your main goal in this event is called Show the transformation space!To complete it, you need to accomplish the goals listed below it by chatting with the customer, showing the object you want to highlight, and-once everyone in the customer’s family has the opportunity to look around-ask for their final goal verdict . You will know when they are ready for the latter because they will display a clipboard icon with a green check mark above their heads.
Completing each goal in the Reveal activity will automatically end the performance. Your Sim will receive their compensation, and you will be assessed for any increase or decrease in performance and reputation. You can choose to stay in the parking lot and chat more with customers-this will not affect your chances of becoming a repeat customer-or go home and let yourself spend the rest of the day.
