Early vampire child detector
« on: January 25, 2017, 03:58:52 PM »
Contrary to EA's intentions, I've spotted a few ways to determine if a child is a vampire.

If you look at the bottom-right corner of the UI, a vampire has a different shape on the Needs icon than a human does; namely, it's fanged instead of smiling. This can be seen as early as toddler.

There's also the case of how frequent the child's diaper has to be changed when it's a baby; I've only ever had to change the diaper once in 3 days, signalling that it's a vampire.

Thanks for the tips. Apparently it is a 50/50 chance when trying for a baby with a sim and a vampire but I'm having no luck even with the Dark Ley Lines lot trait. On to baby number 5 so let's hope this time we get a vamp.

I must have been lucky then, getting a vampire child on first attempt. I also use the lot trait Dark Ley Lines. @Junan Thanks for the tips :)

I don't have any lot traits but I got 2 vamp kids. White hair vampire married to a human woman and they got a vampire daughter in first attempt. Maybe it's from trying for a baby in his coffin. :D  The 2nd case is that abducted by alien as I mention in other posting.
Very hard to be escaped from Sims.

Just wanted to add to this thread.. You can't always tell if a child will be a vampire or not, just had my child age into a vampire on his teen birthday, his parents are completely normal and other than living with Vlad (his grandpa by marriage) and the lot having the dark ley lines, vampire nexus and good schools lot traits, and living in forgotten hollow, there is no other vampiric influence. so it's a 50/50 chance that two normal sims will give birth to a vampire just from the lot traits.

Edit: Just tested this in forgotten hollow without the dark ley lines trait and again, two parents without any vampiric heritage had a vamp child, that showed no signs of being a vampire during the baby or child stages.
