How to Make Twins in The Sims 4
The Sims 4 is all about starting a sim family of your own. You may have noticed a certain little achievement while playing that asks for your family to have twins. Yes, you can have two identical toddlers to deal with, if you’re into masochism. Heck, there are even triplets in the game! But look, let’s take it one step at a time. Let’s see if you can handle just the twins, first.
You can manipulate all aspects of your sim’s pregnancy within the game, from the gender to even making sure you get twins. It’s a little harder to guarantee that, though. It’s a randomized event with a low percentage, but you can increase those odds by getting pregnant and living on a lot with the “On Ley Line” trait as well as by having the Fertile reward for both parents. (You buy that from the Rewards Store for your sims with points from completing their wants and aspirations.)
Of course, there are also cheats you can do. You can use the Master Controller mod (which you should have anyway, because it’s awesome) to ensure it. Or you can enter a cheat! Thanks to TwistedMexican for finding this one out:
- Make sure you can cheat. Press SHIFT+CTRL+C and type “testingcheats on” without the apostrophes.
- The sim needs to already be pregnant. Get their Sim ID by typing “sims.get_sim_id_by_name <yoursimfirstname> <yoursimlastname>” once again in the cheating command bar, without the apostrophes. This will give you your Sim’s ID, which you’ll need for the next part.
- Finally, type “pregnancy.force_offspring_count <simID> <count>” without the apostrophes, and replace <simID> with your sim’s ID and <count> with how many babies you want that sim to have.
That’s all there is to getting twins in The Sims 4! Good luck!
