How to Use the Twins Cheat in The Sims 4?

To use this cheat, you’ll have to know your Sim’s ID.

Every Sim character inside The Sims 4 has a “factory” number, issued by the game itself. This number is ultimately hidden from the players, since we distinguish the Sims by their names, looks, etc. However, this ID number can be revealed by a cheat and it’s a necessary part for using the twins cheat as well!

To do this, simply type sims.get_sim_id_by_name First Name Last Name after enabling your cheats with testingcheats true. In the space of “First Name” and “Last Name”, you should put the correct name of the Sim you’re trying to get pregnant with twins. For example, if your Sim is called Martha Smith, the cheat line would be sims.get_sim_id_by_name Martha Smith. And the ID number should be something like this: 164359347556807236.

Next, you want to use the actual twins cheat: pregnancy.force_offspring_count Sim ID here Number of babies. This might be confusing, so we’ll break it down.

The first part, pregnancy.force_offspring_count, is the core of the cheat and it should never change. But the Sim ID and the number of babies you want that Sim to have will depend on you. In our example, the correct cheat line would be pregnancy.force_offspring_count 164359347556807236 2. In this case, our Sim called Martha Smith, with an ID number of 164359347556807236, will become pregnant with two twin babies of random genders!

How to Have Twins in Sims 4? (without cheats or mods)

If you didn’t know, it’s totally possible to have twins in Sims 4 even without using cheats or mods. There are actually a couple of ways you can do this, but you’ll need one or two Sims 4 DLCs. Here’s my recommended way of having twins in Sims 4:

  1. Have the City Living expansion pack.
  2. Enter the Build Mode and click on the Lot Info Panel.
  3. Choose the On Ley Line trait.
  4. Go and Try for Baby.

Once the WooHoo animation is done, you can have your Sim take a pregnancy test. The On Ley Line trait massively increases the chances of becoming pregnant with twins, so you’ll likely get twins on the first or second try. 

Another method of having twins in Sims 4 is to buy Fertile Reward from the store for 3000 points. This item will increase your fertility and increase your chances of having twins.

In the end, you can also try the Fertility Massage on Spa Day. It might not be the most effective way, but it can get the job done.

And that’s how to have twins in Sims 4 without any cheats or mods.


The twins cheat for The Sims 4 isn’t a hard tool to use at all. However, most people are unaware of it, since twin pregnancy can also happen in a natural way in the game, and it’s a type of thing you only want in particular households. But once you use the twins cheat a couple of times, you’ll get familiar with the notion of getting the ID first, then typing the number of babies you want. And after that, it’s on you to care for them!
