You are definitely not alone in the Sims universe. With the game expansion The Sims 4: Get to Work, it became possible to encounter aliens in disguise on the street, be abducted, have an alien baby and even visit the extraterrestrial world! Total madness.
Despite the new functions, aliens were introduced into the game discreetly. That's why it's common to find players who have never had an alien experience - or, at least, that's what the aliens want you to believe. But don't worry, we are here to help you! Find out now everything you need to know about aliens in The Sims 4: Get to Work.
Increase the chances of being abducted
Before we start the tutorial, it is important to know that abductions can happen naturally, between 22 and 04 in the morning. In the game's storyline, Sims in the career of Scientist ou Doctor are more likely to be abducted.
Despite being a natural event, it is possible to follow methods together to increase this probability through three situations:
1. Visit the alien night
On Tuesday nights, the Alien Night takes place in city bars. Go to any bar and meet new Sims. See if you can identify any extraterrestrials and try to win their friendship. When showing interest in alien culture, you have a 25% chance of being abducted on the same night.
2. Have a “Satellite Dish” or an “Out of This World Desktop”
The Satellite Dish and the Out of This World Desktop are exclusive items to the Scientist career. Both have the interactionContacting Aliens”, which can force an abduction or even bring aliens to your lot. The interaction can only be used once every 24 hours.
Getting a "Satellite Dish"
1 method: Available from level 4 of the Scientist career, use the Invention Builder to obtain it. It will be necessary to gather 3 pieces of common metal and 3 pieces of common crystal.
Method 2 (with cheats): If you want to get a Satellite Dish without being in the Scientist career, press Ctrl + Shift + C and copy and paste the cheat “bb.showhiddenobjects” into the text box. The Satellite Dish will be available in the Electronics/Miscellaneous area of Build Mode for 500 simoleons.
Getting an "Out of This World Desktop"
1 method: available from Scientist career level 10, buy it from the Electronics/Computers area of Build Mode for 15.100 simoleons.
Method 2 (with cheats): If you want to get an Out of This World Desktop without being in the Scientist career, press Ctrl + Shift + C and copy and paste the cheat “bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement” into the text box. The Desktop will be available in the Electronics/Computers area of Build Mode for 15.100 simoleons.

3. Explore the sky with the “Backyard Observatory”
The Backyard Observatory is a powerful telescope that can bring your Sims closer to the alien world. It is available for purchase for 1.500 simoleons in the Activities & Skills/Outdoor Activities area. from the logic skill level 7, the interaction "seek the truth” will be released on and will increase your chances of abduction - in addition to capturing beautiful space photographs!
have an alien baby
It is possible to have a baby alien (with alien powers) or a hybrid baby (no powers, but abnormal coloring).
Only male sims can return from abduction pregnant. In normal game settings, there is a 25% chance for this with each abduction. In order to work around the odds, save the game just before the abduction and go back to the same save (returning to the main menu) until you get the pregnancy. A notification in the Sim's emotions will let them know if the pregnancy was successful.
Pregnancy lasts 72 hours and you can also choose to send your baby back into space as soon as it is born.
pregnancy by relationship
An alien and human sim couple can get pregnant with a hybrid baby with the interaction"try to have baby”. The generation of a purely alien baby (with powers) through relationship is only possible in the case of two adult aliens.
Experience the aliens' special powers
Special powers and interactions are only available to pure aliens.
- Disguise - disguises the alien as a normal Sim (skin color, clothes, etc);
- Analyze Personality - allows you to discover the Sim's traits, career and partner;
- Empathize - copies the same emotion from the target Sim to the alien;
- Erase Memory - erases the target Sim's memory (including relationships and career);
- Secret Handshake - Secret greeting available only between two aliens;
- Transmute - Transforms stones, metals, and crystals into other collectibles.
Travel and explore Sixam (the alien planet)
Sixam is the alien planet hidden within The Sims 4: Get to Work. With blue coloring, gemstones, and an incredible array of glowing, pulsating plants, Sixam is home to extraterrestrials and a must-visit destination for scientist and adventurer Sims.
There are two ways to visit this secret planet: by a properly equipped rocket or by the "Electroflux Wormhole Generator".
Traveling with a Rocket (Easier)
Method: Buy a rocket in the Activities and Skills area of Build Mode. The cheapest is the "Retrofuturistic Flying Object", which costs 5.000 simoleons. To build it, you'll need to invest another 1.000 simoleons - and a lot of time. After your build, keep buying upgrades and reading skill books to reach the Level 10 in Aerospace Science. With the skill maxed out, upgrade the rocket in the interaction"Install Wormhole Generator", for 1.000 simoleons. Explore space and prepare to land on Sixam!
Tip (with cheat): To speed up the installation of the Wormhole Generator, press Ctrl + Shift + C and paste the code "stats.set_skill_level major_RocketScience 10". Your Aerospace Science skill will be automatically maxed.
