When your character becomes a famous musician or singer, he gains a new popularity stat that you must manage and a respect stat.
How popularity works as a famous musician and singer
The popularity of your band can rise and fall throughout your career as a professional musician or singer. Your band’s overall popularity will decrease if you don’t release a new album or single in a year or two. The same is true if you aren’t doing a live concert or touring the world. Your popularity will constantly decrease if you don’t do much with it, so you want to tour at least once a year and try to collaborate with your band, or yourself, to release an album every one to two years, or just one. If you create enough albums, your band may decide to create a collaborative album, which will publish all the best songs from the work you have already published. It is a good way to increase the popularity of your fans.
How respect works as a famous musician and singer
Your respect in the band is a measure of how long you’ve been with that particular band, or as a solo artist, and how much work you’ve done in that role. You can review your respect on the profession page, under your job, and click on the professional role at the top. For example, if you are a professional drummer for the band, the band page will tell you as such and show you the overall popularity of each. When you click on this tab a detailed page will appear describing your role, the genre of the group, the name of the group, the number of years you have spent with the group, the number of albums you have released in your career , how much you’ve earned, the group’s popularity bar, and the respect bar.
The respect bar increases with popularity from what we can tell, but it’s not one-to-one. If you want to increase your respect, you have to release more albums, give more concerts, and be a member of the successful band. That means not pushing to release albums every year, singles, or pushing for concerts or world tours. You want to do that every now and then and you want to practice with your group. The more respect you have, the less likely you are to be kicked out by other group members. It also gives you more opportunities to make singles and create albums that your band can publish together.
