Get to Work: Secret Area
Exploring the Alien World of Sixam
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 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.
Fang Flowers can be harvested from these trees
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.
