Extraterrestrials are among the occult which can be created at the beginning of The Sims 4. They can do anything normal Sims can do, whether it’s going to school, working in a career, or having kids. However, they have a few abilities and interactions that can make the gameplay more intriguing.


How to Become an Alien in The Sims 4

Currently, there are three methods to create an Alien; in CASE, getting abducted by aliens and having children with one. The first is the simplest. Simmers can click on the + icon in Create a Sim (CAS) to add another Sim to the household. There is an option to add occults and one of them is aliens.

Aliens have two looks; their everyday look and a disguise (human look). Players can customize the everyday look by changing skin color, adding weird facial markings, and more. The disguise is done like any other human look in CAS.

The second method is a bit strange. Work in the Scientific career will allow players to have access to a Satellite Antena. It basically allows players to Contact the aliens and impregnate Male Sim, or to protect the hearth against kidnapping for 24 hours. Keep in mind that a lot of materials are needed to make a satellite dish.

If players do not enter this particular career, it is possible to obtain it through cheats. Open the cheat console by pressing:

  • Ctrl+Shift+C for PC
  • Command + Shift + C for Mac
  • R1+R2+L1+L2 for Console
  • The four shoulder buttons for Xbox One

Then type Test cheats True Where The tests deceive, and cheats will be enabled. After that, type bb.showhiddenobjects. Then the Simmers must enter Build Mode and type Satellite in the search box. Just place it on the Lot and that’s it.

After getting the dish, select Contact the aliens will cause the male Sim to be removed from players. The creature usually appears between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. Have a high Logical skill and using the Observatory in The Sims 4 can really increase the risk of being abducted.

This may not happen on the first attempt, so Simmers should keep selecting Contact Aliens every 24 hours until it happens. Players can also save at 9 p.m. and wait until 4 a.m. If nothing happens, they can reload the save and try again.

When an abduction occurs, small lights flicker in a specific area. If the male Sim stands in this area, he will be pulled up by a beam of light from a spaceship. The Sim will be taken to Planet Sixama hidden area in The Sims 4. After a while, if he comes back with a stomach ache and is uncomfortable, then congratulations, the Male Sim is pregnant. The pregnancy then continues normally. Once the Sim has given birth, players can either keep the alien baby or send it to its hometown.

Because pregnancy has a 25% chance of success, players can save while the Male Sim is removed. If he doesn’t come back pregnant, they can reload the save until the aliens impregnate him.

The last method is to Try for baby with an alien. It doesn’t matter if one parent or both are aliens, the baby will be born one. However, two alien parents will have a baby that has all of the alien abilities, while a baby of one alien parent will only have some of the abilities.

If Simmers have trouble meeting aliens (because most of them walk in disguise), they can try going to a bar on a Tuesday night between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. Tuesdays are usually Alien night, so the chances of encountering one are quite high.

Aliens can do a lot of cool things besides dressing up.

Aptitude Gesture The description
Analyze personality Friendly
  • Check Out Other Sims Traits
Empathy Friendly
  • Being able to feel the same emotion the other Sim is feeling
clear memory nonsense
  • Reset the relationship to zero, as if Sim and Alien never met
Scare with the probe nonsense
  • Take out a probe and scare the other Sim with it
Raise dead alien collectibles
  • When interacting with an alien collectible, the aliens have the choice to bring it back to life
Transmute elements, metals and crystals
  • By clicking on an element, a metal or a crystal, the aliens have the possibility of transmuting it
  • The results, however, are unexpected. So if players transmute a rare crystal they can get something better or worse, it’s completely random.

Aliens who only have one alien parent can use some of these abilities, but not all of them. Only pure aliens can use all these powers. Aliens that have been abducted by a human also have full abilities.
