Want to become a full-time streamer like Sasha? She makes over $100k a week from donations and subscribers. She has an amazing interactive community which she makes amazing content for almost daily!
How to get started / Use this mod!
First, figure out which platform(s) you want to stream from. You can stream from a console, pc, your drone, or your tripod.
After that, you want to buy the equipment that you need for streaming. Whether it's a laptop/computer, wifi-enabled tripod, drone, or all of the above. I recommend using multiple and especially the drone.
Figure out what content you want or don't limit yourself and do everything.
Grab the Switch Streamer aspiration if you are interested in that.
Finally, you want to make sure your equipment is working, that you are wearing appropriate clothing, and then begin streaming.
In the first 20-30 minutes of your very first stream, you will have a dead chat but people will eventually show up.
After your first stream, you will have a new trait which will unlock a new menu called "switch streaming" in that new menu you can interact offline, interact with viewers when you are streaming using a drone, and get paid for subscribers every week.
Streaming Pros & Cons
For the already Famous / Big Streamers
You are less likely to get bans for your actions since you bring so much to our platform we will give you many warnings.
We will showcase you on the front page every single stream to bring you even more followers!
You are more likely to receive way more donations and bigger donations compared to a smaller Switch streamer.
Your community will be more welcoming compared to smaller Switch streamers.
You are more likely to receive a lot of hate comments from viewers who are jealous of your success.
You will get more subscribers naturally compared to smaller streamers.
You are less likely to react to subscribers and donations not because you are unappreciative but because you will get more.
For the newcomers / Smaller Streamers
You are most likely to get banned for your actions as you are new to our platform we are really strict.
You will most likely get very few donations and very small donations since you are a smaller streamer.
You are less likely to get hateful comments since you are a smaller streamer.
You are less likely to get more viewers since we mostly display our bigger content creators.
You won't gain subscribers as quickly compared to bigger streamers but you can work for it.
You are most likely to react to subscribers and donations for obvious reasons.
You will unlock social interactions after your very first stream! There is also a chance that people around you will celebrate your donations and subs with you!
Do not wear inappropriate clothing. You should never be nude for any circumstances. You should never be in swimwear at home during a stream unless you are inside of a hot tub or pool. At the same time, we do actually allow swimwear if you are at a beach or pool area.
We do not allow bullying, excessive arguments, or fighting on stream as it is very unprofessional and not the image we want for our streaming platform.
How to Setup Custom Alerts
Unzip the alerts zip file.
Choose one that you want and leave it in your mods folder, delete the rest, or move the rest to a folder that is not in your mods folder.
Some of the Youtubers/Twitch Streamers in the sims community voices are an option that you can use for your alerts here are the previews:
This mod adds live smart comments. There are 350+ possible comments even though you might end up with similar ones. The viewers are about 70% aware of what you are doing and will react to what you're doing-especially with drone streaming. There are all types of comments including mean ones I tried not to go "too far" with the mean comments.
This mod adds donations that will come with comments from your viewers.
This mod adds different moodlets and buffs to express the emotions streamers feel. I didn't go too deep inside the negative emotions (though some are included) because I want this mod so mostly showcase the positive part of being a streamer.
This mod adds an opportunity to get banned. Which will suck.
You can do a few interactions when you aren't streaming by clicking on your sim.
You can get subscribers which you will be paid weekly for having. You will be paid $10-25 per subscriber depending on their tier. You can make a maximum of $100k a week from subs alone.
You can choose from custom alerts for your donations and subscribers. Some alerts are featuring your favorite streamers/Youtubers in the sims community!
You can also try out the aspiration!
The aspiration should guide you like a tutorial and help you take advantage of streaming.
Drone Streaming (Recommended)
You can pretty much do almost anything you want to do when you're drone streaming and the chat will pick up on it.
There are no interactions on the drone itself but there are some when you click on your sim when you are streaming with the drone.
You can interact with your followers, tell a story, and even play an advertisement after you have completed your first stream by clicking on your sim. I advise you do an interaction like "sitting, eating, watch tv, etc.." before you click interact so that the sim will multitask.
I adjusted the drone so that it faces you instead of being behind you to make it more realistic.
Every interaction is based only on the tripod.
You can stream a clothing haul, just chatting, emotional story, romantic story, scary story, singing stream, or recent storytime. When the interaction end so does the stream but they are two hours long.
I added nothing to the computer or console except that the game picks up on the switch streaming mod.
I recommend gaming when the drone is streaming (instead of clicking Livestream on the console/computer) because the game's follower and donation growth makes everything really easy and I didn't want to override it too much because of those who use the social media career.

If you're having issues with the stream stopping just click the stop streaming option on the menu.
Sims shouldn't autonomously stream unless they are in the career was is enabled by EA.
Note: I recommend using the drone because you will have free will to stream whatever you want, it can be gaming, cooking, painting, traveling, etc...and the chat will pick up on it!
