Become your own Occult mashup master by mixing & matching with the Hybrid Mod

Hybrid Mod Stabilizer

The Sims 4 has a decent variety of different Occult types in the game nowadays with Aliens, Mermaids, Vampires, Werewolves, Spellcasters, and even Plantsims showing up from time to time. Each Occult has their own unique characteristics, behaviors, and needs, and Occult types generally can’t be mixed within vanilla gameplay, barring a few exceptions.

Until now, that is!

Pair Up Occult Forms With The Hybrid Mod

With the Occult Unlocker & Stabilizer Hybrid Mod by TwelfthDoctor1 you can now have stabilized hybrid Occult types in a myriad of different combinations. This mod is an update/continuation of the All-in-One Occult Hybrid Stabilizer mod by Iced Cream and in fact, with newer versions of the Hybrid mod you’ll get Iced Cream’s updated script files too (if you already use the version by Iced Cream, make sure you replace those files with the updated versions from this mod).

With the hybrid mod you can create the following Occult combinations via regular gameplay mechanics (such as being turned by a Vampire or eating Mermadic Kelp):

Occult Map

Pretty much all Occults can be hybridized with the exception of Servos, which are limited due to being robots (robots from another planet would still be robots, and you can’t have mermaids because they’d short-out in the water). There are other hybrids that can be made, such as those that include Werewolves, but they require activating TestingCheats and applying the following traits:

Alternatively you can download the Sage of Mastery Magic + Mastery Spells + Ghost Butler + Alchemy mod, also by TwelfthDoctor1, which includes multiple Occult transformation spells that your sim can use instead.

Known Risks & Conflicts

Due to the complex nature of this Hybrid mod, there are multiple risks you should be aware of:

  • Secondary Forms may be deleted from sims
  • Perk Options can go missing
  • The Needs Panel may not display correctly
  • This mod conflicts with Immersive Vampires but there is an override file available which allows them to work together simultaneously
  • The mod will not work if you don’t have at least 2 packs with Occults in them (Get To Work, Vampires, Island Living, Realm Of Magic, Discover University, and/or Werewolves)

Additionally, as with any script mod it’s highly likely this mod will break when The Sims 4 has any major updates. We recommend backing your sims up to your Gallery before experimenting with the Hybrid mod, and only using the mod in some (not all) of your saves. It’s also wise to back up your game before playing with a mod like this just in case.

There is an extensive listing of all updates and known conflicts on the Hybrid mod’s download page that you should absolutely read over before giving the mod a try.

Final Thoughts

If you like to mix things up when it comes to Sims 4 gameplay, messing around with your sim’s DNA can be a fun way to do it. Using the Hybrid mod will allow you to pair up different Occult types with minimal difficulty, creating fun combinations that you can really have a good time with. What do you think would be the most fun Occult hybrid to play? What other Occults would you like to see come to The Sims 4? Let us know in the comments, and have fun with the Hybrid mod!

  1. This website must have a script to make all articles look updated at all times. There’s no other reason why you’d recommend we all install a 2021 version of a mod that was last updated in 2022. It’s not the best idea for us to install outdated mods. Most of these mods need to be updated with every expansion pack, at the very least. I’ve been told on numerous occasions to uninstall this mod because it is outdated and causes exceptions. Even the versions that others have updated cause exceptions. There is, unfortunately, no stable way to have hybrids in this game.

    • Hello Mead, we are sorry you experienced this. We here at SnootySims try to update our older articles as much as we can! However, downloading mods is still on one’s own account. Thus, we also advise that you check all the details and information of mods before downloading them to know if they will cause any issues to your current game version or not. 🙂✨
