This post was last updated on September 1, 2022
If you want to explore the gameplay mechanics of popular new releases, discover cheat codes, and check out the latest updates on Xbox One, this blog is for you! In this article, we will see how to have twins in Sims 4, including methods with and without using cheat codes.
The Sims series allows young adult gamers to create a Sim and build a life entirely of their own choosing, providing a digital space to achieve real-life dreams. Players can create the home they’ve always wanted and even have in-game families.
Players can easily get a Sim pregnant in the base game by having their Sims conceive and then taking a pregnancy test. However, figuring out how many children the Sim will have and factors such as the gender of the baby can be a bit trickier. While players can get their Sims to produce a single baby without too much trouble, the chances of a Sim conceiving twins or triplets are low without a little effort.
The Best Ways to Have Twins or Triplets in The Sims 4
A Sim’s pregnancy is unlikely to result in multiple births. However, players can use certain features to determine if a pregnant Sim has a baby boy or a baby girl. For example, players can increase the chances of having a baby girl by having their Sim play pop music and buy Fruit Seed Packets, which contain strawberries that seem essential for having a girl.
Similarly, players can increase the chances of multiple births by using in-game features.
1. Buy Fertile Reward
The Fertile reward trait increases the possibility of a successful “Try for Baby” for the active Sim who possesses it. This benefit includes the other Sim who is not the biological parent, such as the male Sim partnered with the pregnant Sim. Players can purchase the Fertile trait from the Satisfaction Rewards Shop for 3,000 Satisfaction Points.
2. Give your Sim a fertility massage
The fertility massage method requires the Sims 4 Spa Day game pack, purchase of a massage table, and a Sim with level nine in the Wellness skill. With all of these acquired, players can use the Sim’s Wellness Skill to perform fertility massages, which will induce a “fertility boost” mood in the recipient Sim.
If players want to increase the chances of producing more offspring without tricking babies, they will need to engage in “Try for Baby” while this mood is active.
3. Get the On the Ley Line lot trait
Sims 4 players must have the City Living expansion pack for this method to work. When Sims conceive on a lot with this trait, the pregnancy will likely result in more than one baby.
4. Add a wishing well
Players who purchase the Romantic Garden Item Pack can add a wishing well to their Sim’s property, which could increase the fertility of Sims living on the lot.
Have an alien baby
Beyond learning how to have twins in Sims 4, players hoping to have a little alien running around their Sim home must employ some unique tactics. In Sims 4, only male Sims can get pregnant with alien babies. The most popular method is to get abducted by aliens between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.
During the abduction, the male Sim may encounter an alien called Senior Pollination Technician #3, who abducts males and “pollinates” them with alien DNA. Alien pregnancies work differently than normal pregnancies, as the pregnancy reaches the third trimester after 72 hours.
Players must have the MC Command Center mod to guarantee twins or triplets. With the mod active, players can follow this sequence to determine the number of babies:
- Click on your Sim
- Select MC Command Center
- Select MC Pregnancy
- Click on “Start an Alien Pregnancy”
Players can enter the number of babies they want to spawn, but the maximum for this mod is three. This method allows players to skip planning and wait for abduction and start pregnancy immediately.
Cheat Multiple Births for Twins in The Sims 4
This guide would not be complete without the inclusion of cheat codes. Players hoping to secure twins with the least amount of effort must enable cheats and have the ID number of the Sim they wish to impregnate. To enable cheats, players must do the following:
- On your PC, hold “Shift” + “Ctrl” or “CMD” + “C”, opening a command window.
- In the command window, type “testingcheats true”. to activate all cheats for The Sims 4.
Once players have activated cheats for Sims 4, they can use the Sim’s ID number to guarantee multiple babies with this code:
- pregnancy.force_offspring_count SIM ID NUMBER OF BABIES
For example, if a player wanted Sim 2345879032178 to have three babies, they would enter the code as follows:
- pregnancy.force_offspring_count 2345879032178 3
