Get an Alien Sim in your household
You can make Aliens directly in Create a Sim, you can build up a relationship with them and add them to your household later or your male Sim can be abducted and come back pregnant with an Alien baby.
Get your Sim pregnant with an Alien baby
Only male Sim or male Aliens can get pregnant with an Alien baby by abduction. Also your male Sim can breastfeed the baby when it’s born. These are the combinations to get an Alien baby in your household.
Male Sim + Abduction = Male Sim is pregnant with Alien Baby
Female Sim + Abduction = No pregnancy
Male Alien + Abduction = Male Alien is pregnant with Alien Baby
Female Alien + Abduction = No pregnancy
Male Sim + Female Alien = Female Alien is pregnant with Alien Baby (hybrid)
Male Sim + Male Alien = No pregnancy
Male Alien + Female Sim = Female Sim is pregnant with Alien Baby (hybrid)
Male Alien + Female Alien = Female Alien is pregnant with Alien Baby
Male Alien + Male Alien = No pregnancy
Female Sim + Female Alien = No pregnancy
Female Alien + Female Alien = No pregnancy
Alien genetics is something interesting. If you get hybrid babies they mostly likely get an alien skin tone and have normal hair. When you get a baby that is 100% Alien they will still be bald when they grow up. The genetics from the Alien disguise will also be transfered to your Sims’ child.
Doing an Alien interaction on a normal Sim will result that the Sim will discover that the Alien is in fact an Alien. This will give the Alien an Embarrassed moodlet. These are the special Alien interactions you can do with Aliens:
- Analyze Personality
- Memory Erase
- Scare With Probe
- Secret Handshake (aliens)
- Discuss Human Foods (aliens)
- Discuss Brain Power
- Discuss Weird Atmospheric Pressure (unlock if they found out you’re an Alien)

You can change the way your Alien looks in disguise by clicking the dresser or the Alien and choose ‘Alter Disguise’. Change every detail of your Alien Sim disguise like clothing, body shape and all other options available in Create a Sim. To use the disguise you can click on the Alien and choose ‘Disguise Self’.
Change the Alien clothes to normal Sim clothes
There’s an option to change the clothes from an Alien to more normal clothes Sims wear. Let an Alien go to the Retail Shop where they can buy clothes. If an Alien bought an outfit from a mannequin they will be able to wear them. You can also place Mannequins on your home lot and dress them.
