Aliens are the life state of Get to Work. - Interview by SimsVIP

We are also appearantly getting an Alien trailer next week.


* Create-A-Sim

- Can be created in CAS
- Have different unique skin tones (2 x Purple, 2 x Green, 4 x Blue and Whitish Grey)
- Have different unique eye colors and pupils
- Pointy Ears
- Have a special alien high-tech outfit

* Human Form (Child aliens have no access to this ability)
- Aliens can assume a Human form, thus being able to hide the fact that they're aliens from the neighbors.
- The Human Form is completely customizable, and can be changed at any time. (The only thing you cannot modify is the Fitness/Fatness sliders, but the body and face can be manipulated)
- Aliens can change from Alien Form to Human Form (and vice versa) at any time.
- Aliens can be living right next door and you won't even know it. (You can get close to the alien sim and uncover their secret)
- Doctors, Scientists and Detectives have special ways to uncover aliens.
  * Doctors via X-Ray scans
  * Scientists via "Accuse of being an Alien" interaction
  * Detectives via Fingerprints
- Nearby Sims get a negative buff(s) when near an alien in their natural form.

* Psychic Abilities
- Aliens are able to read the mind of a Sim, instantly learning all their traits.
- Aliens are able to mind wipe a Sim, making them forget recent events. (such as discovering the identity of the alien if uncovered)
- Aliens can telepathically daze/stun a Sim, putting them in the Dazed emotion. (?, unsure about this one)
- Aliens can "connect their mind" with a fellow Alien (and maybe normal Sims too) and 'empathize' with them.
- Aliens can mind control another Sim. (unsure)
- Aliens can telekinetically alter the properties of a collectible, transforming it into another. (Alien Children can't use this)

* Reproduction
- Male Humans and Aliens can be impregnated. (unsure if only through abduction, or also through WooHoo with another male alien)
- Female Humans and Aliens can get pregnant and give birth to alien babies.
- Alien babies come with their own unique Birth Certificate and Futuristic Alien Baby Crib. (+ Alien baby outfit)
- Human and Alien DNA works simmiliarly to how it did in the Sims 3 Seasons.
  Example: 100% Human Sim and 100% Alien Sim have a child, the child is 50% Human and 50% Alien.
  If that hybrid has a child with another human sim, the child will be less an alien and more a human. So it might not have access to it's Telepathic abilities, but may inherit Alien physical characteristics. (skintone, eyes, pointy ears etc)

* Sixam
- Sixam is the Secret Lot coming with the Expansion, and it's the homeworld of the Aliens. (previously only mentioned in past Sims games)
- It has unique plants, minerals, crystals and brand new collectables called Geode Nodes. (found only on Sixam)
- Alien living space.
- Aliens roam the planet. (duh!)
- You can go there though a Portal that can be created via the Science career or through modifying your rocket with a high Rocket Science skill, enabling it to create a "wormhole" and travel there.
- It appears as a selectable location when using the Travel interaction. (I believe only available to Aliens) [unsure about this one]
- Phones don't work while on Sixam.

* Other Interactions
- Discuss Brainpower
- Discuss Human Foods
- Search with Probe
- Secret Handshake
- Discuss weird atmospheric pressure

* Misc. Info
- Aliens have their own Urn/Tombstone.

I'm so happy Aliens are making a return, and that they are going to be playable!

Aliens in the Sims 2 were basically normal Sims with green skin and black eyes. In the Sims 3, they had Mental abilities and that Brain Power motive (instead of Energy) which I really liked. And seeing the telepathic stuff return in The Sims 4 is really cool. Can't wait for more info. :)

I agree I love when they add more unique traits to characters, or some sort of ability.

Some bits of information:
- You cannot visit the three active career lots. (Science Facility, Hospital, Police Department)
   * You can only go there if you're in the respective career. (unsure if you can go at any time, or when your shift starts)
   * Pregnant Sims are a mild exception, they can go to the Hospital to give birth and can bring one Sim with them.
   * Sims from your active Household cannot be arrested and taken to the Police Dp.
- The three career lots are in their seperate "hidden worlds" and are not lots in any World (Oasis Springs, Willow Creek)
- You cannot edit the career lots in Build/Buy Mode. (unless you use a new cheat launching with the expansion)

- Magnolia Promenade is the new world. It has only one neighborhood, which has 4 lots.
  * Those 4 lots are retail businesses.
  * Sims can live in this world.

- Max Floor amount has been increased by 1. (via upcoming patch)
- You can now rotate the entire lot and everything on it will rotate. (Terrain paints, building, plants etc) (via upcoming patch)
- You can now place a larger lot into a smaller size lot and it will squish the buildings and stuff in order to fit it into the smaller lot size. (via upcoming patch)
- Basements (via upcoming patch)
  * You can build two floors into the ground, and for the first time, you can remove the ceiling like this:

Thanks for all the info! This sounds like a good expansion, with some good additions to the game.
