The stellar observatory in Oasis Landing is located next to the bistro and in front of the library and the city hall. Here, Sims can experiment with Zero-G. It can increase a Sim's Advanced Technology skill at a 25% faster rate.
The astronomer career has two branches. These are the astrophysicist branch and space explorer branch. The astrophysicist requires at least level 2 of both Advanced Technology and Logic skills. While the space explorer branch requires at least level 2 of both Advanced Technology and Athletic skills.
Sims who worked in the astrophysicist branch can search for stellar activity. During this interaction, Sims can find valuable posters/paintings of space and planets and some valuable objects. Searching for stellar activity has five potential discoveries: the Gamma Ray Burst, the Super Nova, the Event Horizon, the Life on Another Planet, and The End of Discovery.
Space Explorer BranchEdit
Sims who worked in space explorer branch have the ability to search for stellar activity at the stellar observatory. And when they reach level 10, they will have an ability to travel to Simulon V. With this, Sims can teleport to another planet in attempt to extract Star Dust or Dark Matter. This is available once every 4 hours. Sometimes, this ability can help Sims find valuable objects during this interaction
- If a Sim search for stellar observatory, a light directs to the sky appears, meaning they are searching the galaxy.
