Get to Work: Secret Area

Exploring the Alien World of Sixam

Exploring the planet Sixam in The Sims 4
Sixam is explorable by Career Scientists and those Sims proficient in Rocket Science

The World of Sixam is the new 'hidden' area in The Sims 4 Get to Work, where your Sim can meet Aliens and collect rare objects. In case you didn't notice, Sixam is Maxis (The Sims Developer) backward. There are two ways normal Sims can visit this place: via Rocket Science or the Scientist Career. Two new crystals and metals can be found here, the former of which can derive a new Element, with three new forms of Plant life to grow in your Garden. There is a six-piece collection of Geodes you can find, which give Environment boosts, as well as alien plants to be harvested and grown back home.

Rocket Science can get you to Get to Work's hidden area
Rocket Science and the Wormhole Generator Upgrade are the primary means of reaching Sixam

Method 1: Rocket Science
The primary method for most Sims to reach Sixam is to reach level 10 Rocket Science and install a Wormhole Generator for $1,000. In all, the project will cost you $7,000 and some time. The extra upgrades aren't needed. Your Rocket will simply have the ability to Travel Through Wormhole to reach Sixam.

Method 2: The Scientist Career
Reaching level 10 in the Scientist Career, you can upgrade your Wormhole Generator by attending work and using the Invention Constructor. You can learn all about that career in our guide, but here's what you need to know: initial construction of the Wormhole Generator requires level 6 and a scientific breakthrough along with 2 uncommon metals, crystals, and two of any elements. The upgrade itself is free to use, just requiring you to place the Wormhole Generator on the Invention Constructor and select upgrade. This is the more time consuming route between the two, but Scientist is a great Career and offers loads of money-making potential so is by no means a sink like Rocket Science.

Exploring the World
Look for the Geodes, which are like balls on pedestals, along with the small Quill Fruit Plants and Wild Orb Stalks. You can also harvest the glowing blue trees, which will give you Fang Flowers.

Quill Fruit can be picked, but look also for plants known as Wild Orb Stalks

The dig spots and crystals are obvious. You will likely encounter Aliens here, who can be befriended.

Cheating to Get an Alien
While on Sixam, if you want an Alien, there's an easy way to add one to your own Household. Simply enable testing cheats via Control + Shift + C and then typing, testingcheats on. Shift-clicking an Alien will then allow you to Add to Family.

Once your sim has arrived in Sixam you can direct your sim to go here by clicking on the ground. There are parts of Sixam, just like any other Sims 4 world that a sim can not get to.

Is there another method?

These are the only two methods to get to Sixam that are under direct control of your played sim. The other way is a work opportunity that your level 10 scientist may or may not get. If you are lucky your L10 scientist will get the work opportunity to attend an alien party on Sixam as part of his daily at-work requirements.

I found there is another way. If you do Control + Shift + C and type testingcheats on and type enter and then do bb.showhiddenobjects and then enter, then go to build mode and search for a Invention Constructor and buy one and a wormhole thing, then you just update the wormhole thing and then you an go to Sixam Grin Hope this helped!

Do ctrl + shift + c and type in "bb.showhiddenobjects". Now search for ** DEBUG ** in the build mode and you may be able to find the fishing signs. Now you can fish ANYWHERE.

That's if you want to use cheats. For a vanilla game fishing is not an option on Sixam.

I haven't found anywhere that is says definitively, but Elder males can get pregnant by abduction, as well as Adults. I was shocked!

There are aliens everywhere in the worlds. I met a weird sim while visiting the park and i found her quite suspicious and a bit "out of this world" by the way she talked and she made this funny animation as if she was reading someone's mind so i collected a DNA sample from her and anylised it. The results did nkt reveal anything but after a while talking to her it informed me th she was an alien and later the same day i found another one wondering around .i already foumd like six just talking to people. I only have one question though: how do you get one to join your household. I know u can add one in CAS but they are just so stubbornSmile maybe ill just stick with normal friends instead.
Lol

You can add them to your household by befriending them then in the friendly interaction you should see the 'move in' interaction.

I keep trying to get my Sim abducted, but the only thing that happens is an alien comes to my house. I'm trying to do the Xenophilia challenge but my Sim won't get abducted! Is there any way to fix it?

Jesssays...
get a satellite (can be done while you are in the scientist career in get to work and invent on the invention robot thingy or simply just cheat it. Type bb.showhiddenobjects on the cheatbox and you can find it under the electronics;misc category), click on it, select "contact aliens" and any minute or so, an alien will abduct you. that's what i did to get my male sim abducted...and of course, have an alien baby ;)

No, that won't happen. Your male sim is safe to visit Sixam.

Unsure are you sure bcs my sim got male sim got pregnant for just dating one i dont know how or it was Cassandra Goth maybe she is an allien ?

Admin
Playalotsays...
Sorry but that is impossible, aliens can not impregnate sims unless they try for baby or the target sim gets abducted. Also Cassandra in a vanilla game is not an alien just a regular townie sim.

Can u travel back and forth between sixam and the over world
Admin: If you have a fully upgraded rocket or worm hole generator than your sim can travel to Sixam anytime they choose. You already can travel to any of the worlds or neighborhoods by using the shortcut 'M' to bring up the travel menu.

Where do I plant the alien fruit? Like the quill fruit
Gravatar
Admin
Playalotsays...
Anywhere on a lot, you can use a planter or just plant a quill fruit straight into the ground. Smile All the plants in The Sims 4 behave the same way. A planter will give a slight boost to the harvesting time as the fruit will appear a little quicker meaning you can get in more harvests.

You can find them through sending alien crystals away to the Geo Council via your sims phone or by Practice Analysis - using the Chemical Analyzers that are one of the science career items but can be bought in the Buy catalogue.

I wish there were custom interactions for when you send an alien sim to Sixam. My sim watched the alien channel (unlocked by the satellite) and it gave her a sad moodlet for being homesick. But when she goes to Sixam it's just like any other world.
Gravatar
Admin
Playalotsays...
I agree, it was a bit of a missed opportunity. I've seen some amazing builds on Sixam though by using the bb.enablefreebuild cheat. I guess doing that would make a trip to Sixam more interesting. Of course if your sim is in the Science active career then that might make the trip to an alien party not function correctly...

toniesays...
This isnt impossible unless our games have a glitch because my sim was an astronaut and he visited twice after upgrading the rocket to travel through wormholes, just flirted with an alien who was a girl and had a girl name then he just explored came back and then he was just pregnant by senior pollination tech then a number i cant remember lmao but it happened twice i can definately vouch for this
Gravatar
Admin
Playalotsays...
I think you are referring to pregnancy by alien abduction which is a feature of alien game-play that of course came with the Expansion Pack 'Get To Work'. However sims can not get pregnant by just talking to aliens or even using romantic interactions unless it is 'Try For Baby' and the gender settings are set accordingly in CAS. NPC alien females can not impregnate sims males through ordinary vanilla game play. But males sims can get pregnant after an alien abduction. Smile

How do I move my whole family to sixam?
Gravatar
Admin
Playalotsays...
You can't technically live there. It is a destination world really so you can only visit. With cheats you can build on the lot and once one sim is on the world you can click to bring the other household members there to but your sims will always return by default to their residential lot.

Can you make a alien when you build a household?Huh

Yes, it's under the options when you 'add a sim'. If you only want an alien just delete the initial sim that CAS starts with.

My sim has level 10 rocket skill fully upgraded rocket ship but only has options of explore space, zero g workout and stuff fruit in exhaust port but no wormhole option to go to sixam. Do I have to explore space a few times for option to appear.

So there are two ways to get to Sixam as Carl says in the guide-both require the expansion pack Get To Work: one is by maxing Rocket Science Skill and upgrading a rocket ship or; two - your sim needs to be level 6 of the Scientist Active career that came with Get To Work to unlock and build the Wormhole Generator then level 10 to upgrade it which will allow you to upgrade the wormhole with the ability to travel to Sixam.
As soon as a rocket is built, as long as your sim has level 10 rocket science skill the action 'Install Wormhole Generator' will be available under the 'Upgrade' tab when you click on the rocket with your mouse.
