Becoming an astronaut in The Sims 4

To start this career, you first have to select it from the career panel. The ideal mood for this career path begins with Focused but soon it changes to Energized. So, it is better to keep both of these two moods in check.

You will also get a free spaceship, however, you still need to spend $1000 to upgrade it and make it actually functional. Make sure to keep doing your daily tasks such as playing chess or looking through the telescope. This way your Logic skill will always stay sharp.

Furthermore, you need to keep improving your Fitness skill as well so that once the ideal mood becomes Energized, you will not have a hard time transitioning from being Focused. This change generally happens at level 4.

When it comes to the promotion aspect in this career mode, after reaching level 7, this career branches out into two different paths: Space Ranger and Interstellar Smuggler.

Again for this branch, you have to keep your Sim Energized at higher levels and the best way to keep it up would be by drinking and making the Space Energy Drink. You can also get a physics degree to boost your levels.

This is perfect for boosting your performance and letting your Sim have more time to do space missions. Both your Rocket Science and Fitness levels also need to be at least around level 4 and level 10.
