Master All the Things! The Sims 4 Triple Boost Week: Skills and Careers is Live

Via: The Sims

Ever want to level all your Sims’ Skills but they’re all “I’m too tired to paint” or “I’m too sad to Exercise”? What about trying to climb that Career ladder but your Sim just… isn’t feeling it? Well, clear your schedule for the next week, because The Sims 4™ Triple Boost Week: Skills and Careers is now live, free* for all players!

So, what does this mean? Simple: from August 22 at 10am PT until August 29 at 10am PT, your Sims can gain Skills at a whopping three timesthe usual rate, or gain a triple Job Performance Boost for base game Careers. All they’ll need to do is head over to Jasmine Holiday (or call her on the phone) to get granted with seven in-game days of Skill or Career Boosts. You can do it as many times as you want during that period, giving your Sims plenty of time to reach the top of their Career, or Skill up enough to write the next great novel. You’ll only be able to have one at a time, though – asking for a Skill Boost when you already have a Career boost will cancel the other one.

The Sims 4 Triple Boost Week: Skills and Careers is live right now, so grab some snacks and settle in; it’s time to make your Sim the master of everything!

We wish we could’ve included every single great Let’s Play we found but for now here’s are some that are focused on The Sims 4 Dine Out, that we really love and hope you do too!

TheSimSupply – Dine Out Rags to Riches 

This series is a really fun take on the regular Rags to Riches series that James does, this time focusing only on cash made from running a restaurant! This has been really fun to watch evolve and as always, James really delivers some seriously awesome build skills as the series goes on.

XUrbanSimsX – Dine Out Series 

With the help of XUrbanSimsX, Bob and Eliza are fulfilling their destiny and opening a breakfast restaurant, and it’s everything we ever wanted it to be. We love XUrbanSimsX and this Let’s Play has us crying with laughter every time.

LifeSimmer – Dine Out (1 Ep so far)

Well, she nailed it again! LifeSimmer continues to bring her usual awesome characters with backstories and amazing style, but this time with a Dine Out twist. There’s only one episode right now, but we’re hoping this might encourage her to make some more! We can’t wait to see more of Bambi and how her business grows.

AviatorGamez – Italian Love!

All Italian, all the way. This series is really fun, with a bit of build action, family drama, and plenty of laughs. We really love how themed this whole series is start to finish, right through the Sim names and personalities. And the best part is, there’s already a full series to watch. Yay for binge-watching!

Andrew Arcade – Let’s Play Dine Out

The Papaya family are opening up their own dining establishment, Portable Papaya, and it’s really unique. This series is really fun to watch, with the added bonus that the builds are also more than a little bit jaw-dropping! If you love Let’s Play’s with huge families and lots going on, this is definitely one for you!

Kaleidow – Dine Out Challenge

Do you like fun Let’s Plays with tons of bright colors? Then this is the one for you! Kaleidow has created a really amazing restaurant that’s so bright and colorful and unique, we wish we could go there IRL! This whole series is really adorable and fun to watch, we really hope she adds even more to it soon.

So, there you go! This is just a handful of all the awesome series we found, but we always want to find new Let’s Players too, so if you have anyone to recommend, let us know on Twitter!

LukeyDeanSims – Nacho Mama’s Kitchen

We love nachos and we love puns, so how could we not feature this build? This one only needs a smaller lot so you can really get that take-out feel, and the little outdoor seating area is really cute too!

Steph0sims – Urban Garden

This place looks so good we wish we could make a reservation IRL! This is a great spot for date night, family night, or any day ending in “day”! There’s a real relaxed modern feel to this restaurant, and we really love the use of plants decorating the whole place.
