Hello guys,

Can aliens and vampires produce offspring together? The question just popped up in my mind :)

I know in Sims 3 they could but the offspring would be either an alien or a vampire. 100% one or the other. I am not sure what it is in Sims 4, that is a great question and I am going to try this out. In CAS you could make a family and have one be a vampire and the other be an alien and then "play with genetics" and see what happens with the kid it randomizes.

It would be cool if they made it so you could have different aspects of both.

No hybrids in TS4 your sims offspring will either be 100% alien or 100% vamp but yes... they can have nooboos together.

She just lives up to her name 'Playalot' ;) It's always fun to explore things like genetics! But will a child from a normal Sim and alien also be either one or the other? Or will it be a halfbreed? I really should know these things by now, but I guess real life has kept me busy more often than not.

They have alien skin (or not, you can choose) and conversation options, but for the rest, they're human. They're technically not hybrids, although they look like they are. This is a hidden trait that is transmitted indefinitely no matter the number of generations.

I may or may not have been playing-a-lot  :P lol There's a paragraph at the end of this page in the guide that explains about alien hybrids click but really @oshizu  is the person to ask as (if I remember correctly) she experimented way (as in waaaaaaaay) more with aliens than I did.  ;D

Haha no, I have no knowledge or experience whatsoever with interspecies romance between aliens and vampires. Sounds like it would make a cool story, though.  ;)

Ah. Well, thank you for the information! It's a little disappointing that hybrids aren't a thing anymore. :-\ Oh, well. I just made an alien botanist yesterday - maybe I should have her go for old Straud. :o Which reminds me I was planning to make an ugly Sim today for said vampire. Thanks, guys. :)

Actually, I have one and posted my bug story on EA Sims site. A helper told me it could be from mods/ccs with the bug. Another simmer posted his or her vamp sim is abducted  and now pregged. I'm looking forward that simmer's story.

He had the alien ring with vampire needs bar after aging up to teen. 

3.jpg
He had a strange thirst moodlet for 1 day.After moodlet's gone, his plumbob ring is turned into vampire one without any specific animation.

His birth certificate

My bug is that I can't change his hairs and clothes.
I can change them in CAS, but he just gets back to previous clothes after that in live mode. I tried to change it again after removing mods folder and repaired game but the issue is still going on.
I'm not sure this bug could be from cc/mods, that's why I wanted to know there is other simmer playing without cc/mods would have my case. I'd like to know my sim is glitched from corrupted save file or not. Even I don't know this vampiric Alien is normal or Bugged occult.

@Summers  thanks for sharing your interesting sim/alien/vamp. Sadly it will be because of the mods you are using as in a vanilla game there is no way of having hybrids. Still least we now know that a modder could make it possible!

@Playalot  It's still amazing. I love him even though he might be glitched because he still has no problem to use his alien power with vampire one.

This is his hidden traits.

After analyzing my scientist sim, he got this moodlet. D
I'm using CC skin. Will it break a rule here? Please let me know.
As far as I know, it's not allowed to post about ccs but I'm not trying to share CCs, just only screenshots.

What a gorgeous sim you have, both in normal form and alien form!!! Does he also have a dark (vampire) form?
Thank you for sharing!

@oshizu  He has an option 'show dark form' under 'vampire' menu, but can't customize anything. I let him show his dark form and he turned his body to change, then he showed the same looks and alien wear on dark form. I see only 'show dark form' and after that, there's no option,"hide dark form". That's my issue. I can't customize anything on alien status, disguised status and even dark form status. I can see only 2 formations in cas, but usual dark form might not be available in cas.   So partly, I agree with what @Playalot said that basically half and half is not supported. I think EA even didn't know it would happened in game and that's why his dark formation is not properly changed. I will see the answer when he grows up to YA.

I found one more thing today about him. After using alien power, he got his alien plumbob ring back. If he use vampire power next time, I guess he would get the vampire ring back. :D He is my treasure. :)

It is pretty cool @Summers  which mod do you think it is that is causing the 'hybrid' ?

Now I took this out of my sims 4 folder.

@Summers Well, the devs should regret they didn't implement hybrids intentionally, because your game proves it can easily work - plus, it's good fun and seem natural :) Thanks for sharing and pics.

@Nindigo  Thanks for accepting my issue in positive way.:) Actually, he drunk vampire cure drinks and back to normal alien a couple of weeks ago. And eventually I was able to customize his everything in CAS even with those mods I mentioned. But I really got sick of aliens all over town, so I turned my alien teen into human using cheats, then re installed everything but get to work. Now there are lots of bold headed human sims in bare feet all over town. I'm preparing to save my sim families into library. No more Get to Work for the moment. :(

@Summers

I can understand. We also really need an improvement to randomly generated Sims or the option to disable them (I'd prefer this one). Plus the genetics system in TS4 feels stunted. Yesterday, one of my Sims gave birth to a very dark skinned child with pale blonde hair: a female Marcus Flex in terms of facial features with his green eyes...and her mother's lovely blonde hair. In other words - a horrible nightmarish creature that I mercy-deleted out of fear for what it would like as it grew up.

None of the aliens in my games look like aliens save for the bald head, colored skin and alien clothes. Otherwise, they are just your regular randomly generated obese Sim with asian features and names, Santa-beards, and a ridiculous urge to be annoying. No big black bug eyes, oversized heads or anything interesting.

Oh sad that you don't have your hybrid still but I completely understand the dislike of alien invasion. While I love disguised aliens in my games I loath having a hoard of undisguised aliens take over. The alien night in the bars (introduced with Get Together) really were poorly implemented in my view. It would have been much better to have disguised aliens enter the game at that point. Better for game play too as at least then you would have had to 'discover' who was an alien.

@Nindigo  my game generated female sims are always obese with a weird mix of Asian features but with very dark skin and the thickest male eyebrows. I take them into CAS and hit randomize everything and the face shape alters dramatically and while the clothes are generally nightmarish at least the sims look nice. There is something definitely very wrong with the way my game generates townies but even a reinstall etc hasn't fixed it. The face shape is always the same, very short, rounded with no chin and weird bug eyes. Least the randomizer still produces a wide variety of sims for me. I spend a lot of time mercy-deleting townies  ;)

I use MCCC to force aliens to wear their disguise other than on Sixam in my saves.
I've also noticed parts of code that can disallow aliens from being spawned everywhere like they currently do, disallow them completely or disallow them without their disguise. This is one of my next mods, and I'll work on it as soon as I get the Vampires pack because I'd like to mod Forgotten Hollow too, so that vampires will be taken into account for retuned restrictions (especially during the day to reduce the risk of seeing them burning to death), and ghosts in hospitals too. Including a fix for deserted community lots. So if a future patch never takes control of this, I'll take control and share it with you :)
