What’s the highest paying acting gig in Sims 4?


The Acting career in Sims 4 is not very fulfilling salary-wise. You basically earn the same money on Level 8, 9 and 10 and you only get a gig once every 2 or 3 days. Most Sims get paid 6-7K Simoleons per gig which means they roughly earn 15K Simoleons per week or about 55-60K per month.

Hobbies such as gardening or painting often bring in more money than acting gigs. Let’s explore what you can do to earn more money while pursuing an Acting career.

Which acting gig brings in the most money in Sims 4?

Sims that are 5-star celebrities, and also have a college degree in Drama and the Easy Street fame perk can earn up to $20K per acting gig. To get solid paychecks while pursuing an Acting career, be sure your Sim masters the Acting skill and is a 5-star celebrity. Maxing out Charisma helps to secure hefty paychecks.

As you can see, there’s no specific acting gig that pays the most money. It all boils down to your Sim’s acting skill level and having the traits that support this career path.

Sims can also earn royalties from the videos they upload. That’s a really easy way to earn some extra money and increase followership. Unfortunately, that’s not enough to buy that huge mansion that all celeb Sims dream of. It’s really hard to get rich as an actor alone.

The bad news is that most Sims earn 6-7K Simoleons per gig even after reaching Level 8, 9 or 10.

To make matters worse, there’s an annoying glitch affecting the Acting career that sometimes prevents Sims from going to acting gigs. If your Sim can’t make it to the gig, they won’t get paid, so that’s a major issue.
