The Sims series is a real-life simulation game where you create characters and build their lives the way you want. The game aims to be as close to real life as possible, including having a family. However, when it comes to creating a family, there is no guarantee that your Sim will have the chance to conceive and, if so, how many children they will have.
To increase the chances of having twins, we've included tips to ensure your Sim gives birth to multiple children. Additionally, our FAQs include how to adopt, care for a child, and general "Woohoo" success tips.
How to Have Twins Without Cheats in The Sims 4
In Sims 4, there are four ways to increase your Sim's chance of having twins. Here they are in no particular order:
1. Buy Fertile Reward
"Fertile" is an achievement reward trait. This increases the possibility of a successful "Baby Trial" for the Sim possessing the trait (whether they are the biological parent or not). It also greatly increases the likelihood of twins or triplets.
This is the only way to increase the chances of multiple births in the base game. You can purchase a "Fertile Reward" from the "Satisfaction Reward Store" for 3 Satisfaction Points.
2. Get a fertility massage
Sims with a "Level Nine" in the Wellness skill can give a "Fertility Massage" at the spa. This causes a "Fertility Boost" mood for the receiving Sim. You will need to own a massage table to be able to give fertility massages.
To increase the chances of multiple pregnancies, you'll need to engage in "Try Baby" while the mood is up. This requires the Spa Day game pack.
3. On Ley Line Lot Trait
If your Sims conceive a lot with this trait, while single births are still a small possibility, multiple births are to be expected most of the time. In this scenario, "The City Living" expansion pack is required.
4. Fertility Elixir
When your Sims reach level 10 in the "Herbalism Skill", they can brew this elixir recipe. The Sim who consumes it will increase their chances of conceiving twins or triplets. This scenario requires the “Outdoor Retreat” game pack.
How To Get Twins With A Cheat In The Sims 4
To ensure your Sim has twins using the least amount of effort, you must enable cheats and have the ID of the Sim you wish to impregnate. You can read our article on activating cheats in The Sims 4 here or follow below
Activate cheats first
- On your Windows or macOS computer, press and hold "Shift" + "Ctrl" or "CMD" + "C" to open a command window.
- Type “testingcheats true.” This will enable the use of all cheats for The Sims 4.
- Press Enter. » You will receive a message informing you that cheats have been activated in your game.
To add your twins
After activating the cheats, you need to find the ID number of the Sim character whose twins you want to have. You can use a cheat to reveal your Sim's ID number. To get the Sim ID, type the following cheat line into your command prompt:
- “sims.get_sim_id_by_name firstname lastname.”
In the "first name" and "last name" spaces, enter the Sim's name. For example:
- “sims.get_sim_id_by_name Jane Doe.”
The Sim ID should look like this:
The cheat line for asking for twins is:
- “pregnancy.force_offspring_count SIM ID NUMBER OF BABIES.”
The cheat for the Sim to have two babies at the same time is:
- “pregnancy.force_offspring_count 1341302010235 2.”
How to Woohoo for a Baby in The Sims 4?
Woohoo is an essential representation of love. The Woohoo interaction associated with “Try for Baby” is a pleasant relationship booster that shows when a couple has developed a sufficient “romantic relationship”.
Woohoo makes Sims happy. It provides a four-hour mood and increases their social and fun needs, although their hygiene decreases slightly.
All young adult and older Sims have the option of Woohoo. Teenage Sims don't have a choice, but they can "have fun." A Sim can even Woohoo with ghosts and get an achievement.
Increase Woohoo Success
Your Sim is more likely to have their Woohoo invite accepted by another Sim when they have a high "Charisma Skill". Additionally, Sims with the "Seductive Trait" are 20% more likely to succeed and have an effective "Charisma Skill" level of +2. You acquire this trait by selecting a "Love Aspiration" during Sim creation.
Your Sim's mood also affects Woohoo's success. Flirting has the most impact, followed by being happy and playful. If a Sim is bored, stressed, angry, sad, or embarrassed, they are less likely to accept Woohoo. If your Sim is in the mood, try improving it by meeting their needs and livening them up with an activity, then try Woohoo again.
"Try for Baby"
In The Sims 4, there is no guarantee that regular Woohoo will cause pregnancy, although it is not impossible. Sims must consent to "Try on for Baby" as often as they would accept a Woohoo invite.
The baseline chance of pregnancy from Try for Baby relationships is 80%. The same in all places. With the "Fertile Reward" this goes up to 150%, also greatly increasing the chances of twins or triplets.
Places in Woohoo
Where your Sims can Woohoo depends on what expansion packs you have. If the following items are not on the current bundle, the Woohoo option will not be available. Woohoo can take place in or on the following objects:
· A double bed.
· A Rocket – Once it's ready, just click on it and then “Woohoo with…” will show up, assuming the other Sim is willing to give it a try.
· The Observatory – Not a great place but Sims seem to like it.
How to adopt a child in The Sims 4?
To create a baby in The Sims 4, you can either "Try for Baby" to conceive naturally, or select "Household" and then "Adopt." You can choose to adopt a baby, toddler or child for $1. You'll see photos and names of the available cubs, then just click on the one you want.
Congratulations, you are going to have twins!
The Sims real-life simulation game is a fun way to create a world with your characters. As in real life, conceiving children offers no guarantees. But in the world of Sims, anything your Sim wants, they can have.
If you want twins or triplets for your Sim, no problem. There are ways to increase their chances of multiple births, such as with the "fertile reward". Moreover, there are cheats that guarantee it.
