DJ Mixing and Dance Skill Guide: The Sims 4 Get Together

DJ Mixing Skill

As a DJ, your sole responsibility is to keep the party pumping with the hottest tunes across every genre. But the only way to reach max stardom is to practice on the turntable. The Sims 4: Get Together provides aspiring DJs a plethora of DJ Booths which can be upgraded to create an even more spectacular event.

A DJ Booth IN The SIms 4 Get Together

Obviously, your first order of business is to purchase a DJ Booth. As your sim practices on the turntables, they’ll unlock new music genres and upgrades for the DJ Booth.

DJ Booth Upgrades
The DJ Booth has a variety of upgrades.

DJ Booths first become upgradedable when the DJ Mixing skill reaches level 6. These upgrades require your Sim to have a certain amount of Common and Electronic upgrade parts. A quick way to gather these items is to have a Sim with a high level handiness skill buy the parts from a computer. From here you can ferry these parts over to the DJing Sim to let them upgrade the DJ Booth. 

At level 7, you’ll gain access to the particle generator and plasma display upgrade. Once implemented, the Particle Generator’s effects can be toggled through the [Control Panel] button on the DJ booth.

Telesplosion

One other interesting upgrade is the “Telesplosion” effect. This upgrade displays looping animations on TV screens nearby. Unfortunately these animations do not sync up well with the video shown on the DJ booth. 

Custom Mixes
DJs can also create their own custom mix!

At level 8, DJs will be allowed to create their own custom mixes. These mixes take pretty much the entire day to create. But once it’s completed, you can name the mix and play it during parties or gain royalties from licensing the mix at the mailbox.

Feel The Crowd

“Get Hyped,” and “Feel the Crowd,” are two interactions you can perform to the audience at the DJ Booth. The former draws onlookers into the audience, while the latter attempts to change the mood of the crowd. There’s only four moods to choose from: confident, flirty, dazed, and energetic.  Choose wisely, as initiating this action will disable it for a period of time.

Dancing Skill

Unlike the DJing skill, the Dancing skill caps off at level 5. As your Sim levels up, they’ll gain new dance moves they can perform alone or with a group! This skill is incredibly easy to level up. In fact, making everyone dance together in a group is a surefire way to max out their skill levels.

Dance Skill Sims 4

Sims can practice dance moves at a stereo, DJ booth, full-length mirror, or on a dance floor.

Dance 4

All dance moves, whether solo or in a group, must be performed on a dance floor. At the start of the routine, your Sim will begin to shoo away nearby sims. While performing their moves, there’s a slight chance they mess up and even sit out the rest of the performance.

Portable Dance Mat and Retro Sneakers

Sims will unlock the Portable Dance Mat and Retro Sneakers as they progress through the skill. The portable dance mat is reminiscent to those old cardboard mats used in the breakdancing scene in the 80’s.

A Tour Through Windenburg in The Sims 4: Get Together

Sims 4 Espresso

Today’s reveal marked an introduction of the various sights and sounds your Sims can explore in the European inspired world of Windenburg. In our last post, we were only given a glimpse at one of the venues in the Business District, but today we were excited to see other areas too, like the public pool and café!

The Café offers Sims a chance to dine on freshly brewed espresso and decadent croissants. A barista will be inside ready to take an order!

Next up is our first official Public Pool! Known as the “Bath du Rill,” this venue will allow Sims to sit underneath the shade of a beach umbrella, or take a splash into the pristine waters using the “Diving Platform.”

Off into the countryside is the pub where Sims can hang out playing darts, foosball, and even Jenga!

 

The Sims 4 Bluffs Ruins

Way off into the distance is the “Bluffs” a mountainous island with decaying ruins. Here Sims will be able to swim in the Natural Pool!

 

Sims 4 Von Haunt Estate

Last but not least is the Von Haunt estate, a luxurious manor haunted by ghosts! Here your Sims can explore an exquisite garden maze.

The party doesn’t stop there, however. Head downtown to the club for a dancing extravaganza, or over to the ruins for some after hours fun with a portable bar and enticing bushes.

 

The Sims 4: Get Together: Dance Skill and DJ Booth Preview

Sims 4 Get Together Dance Mat

Maxis released yet another trailer for The Sims 4: Get Together! This time, the video focuses on new skills where Sims can bust out the hottest dance moves or play the latest tunes on the DJ Booth.

 

Sims 4 DJ Booth

With practice, Sims can level up their DJ skills to unlock more types of music to play. Once they reach a certain level, they’ll gain the ability to “pump up the crowd” causing Sims nearby to fist pump the music. There will also be a new trait called “The Dance Machine,” being described with the ability to help your Sim pick up new dance moves.

 

Sims 4 Synchronized Dancing

Aside from that, we learned you can dance in-sync with your club members and even challenge one of them to a dance battle!

 

Windenburg Business District

The trailer also briefly showed off a new section of Windenburg which appears to be the Business district shown in the concept artwork. This modern locale sits on a pier surrounded by Tudor style buildings off into the distance.

 

Windenburg Club

Within this district is a new dance club, one of the few locations you can show off your new dance moves in The Sims 4: Get Together!

Social Club Settings In The Sims 4: Get Together!

Sims 4 Get Together Clubs

This week’s brand new trailer revealed more details on the operations of Social Clubs in The Sims 4: Get Together! A social club is a gathering of Sims who share a similar set of characteristics that follow a set of rules governed by the club leader. Club leaders are marked by a golden crown above their club’s symbol.

 

Sims 4 Club Name and Symbol

When forming a Club, your Sim needs to decide upon a name and icon to represent their club during social gatherings.

 

Sims 4 Club Requirements

Each club is comprised of a list of requirements which can be set by age, career, marital status, financial status, trait, and skill levels. You can freely choose which set of rules should be applied to the club. However, be aware that this may disqualify potential candidates when they fail to meet the requirements.

 

Sim 4 Club Activities

You may also choose a list of activities your club wishes to engage in. Whenever they do these activities, they’ll gain points which can be spent on special perks. You can also choose activities your club refuses to perform, like being mean or getting in fights.

 

Club Vibes

Here you can spend the points you’ve earned on various perks like skill boosts, social bonuses, club handshakes, and club vibes. For example, you can purchase a vibe to set your club’s mood as being playful or energetic.

 

Sims 4 Diving Board

And last but not least is the Club Hangout, where your Sims can relax in a house filled with activities you provide. At Simcitizens, we happened to notice the diving platforms, one made out of rocks, and another with a modern design.

The Sims 4 Get Together Delayed Until December

Get Together Llama Board Game

Originally slated for a November release, The Sims 4’s Get Together expansion pack has been pushed to early December. This delay will allow them to further polish the game and add even more content. For example, there is a new Don’t Wake the Llama! board game and a diving rock for Natural Pools.

In addition, the team wants to further flesh out Clubs. A new feature will allow you to choose a signature spot for club members to hang out at.

North American players can expect to get their hands on the expansion on December 8th. They plan to release it to other regions within that week.

Check out our Get Together section for more news on the upcoming expansion!

Creating a Club in The Sims 4’s Get Together Expansion

Sims 4 Get Together Club Group

As revealed in the initial announcement, your Sims can create and join Clubs in The Sims 4 Get Together. Clubs are groups of Sims that follow a set of guidelines, indicating what they wear, where they hang out, and how they behave.

When creating your own club, these guidelines are set by you, the player. You decide where members of the club go and what they’ll wear when they get together. Restrict child Sims from joining, or everything but! Hovering over a Sim will tell you what club they’re in, and indicate if they’re the club’s leader.

Sims 4 Get Together Club Clothing

Clubs can have a total of 10 rules, including 5 encouraged and 5 discouraged. Encourage members to be flirtatious, or better yet, specify another club for them to be flirtatious towards! Gear your club towards certain skill-based activities, like fitness or painting. You can even get Sims to act out of character, going against their base personality traits if the club rules dictate such. Don’t worry though, as it only affects Sims during a Club Gathering.

Make your own unique club when the Sims 4 Get Together launches in November!
