Have you ever tried to employ the assistance of Servo in The Sims 4? If you don’t know where to start, we’ve got this nifty article to help you out!


Learn All There is To Know About a Servo in The Sims 4

One of the best things that The Sims 4: Discover University added to our game is the comeback of Servo, the robot Sim! Servo is a Sim life state, that was first introduced to the Sims games through the release of The Sims: Livin’ Large. They look and sound mechanical, they do not age at all, and they also do not need any food to survive. This means you can keep them in your Sims’ households for as long as you wish. However, they do need some other things to help them with their day-to-day functions. So, let’s proceed to discuss what these are!

How to Create a Servo in The Sims 4

Just like aliens, mermaids, and other occult Sims in the game, a Servo is also a playable character in the Sims 4! However, you can’t just create them in CAS like your typical Sims. To have a Servo in the household, your Sims have to build one, using the Robotics skill. They can level up the skill through the usual route, or with some help using the Sims 4 set skill level cheat. Once they reach level 8 in the skill, they can then use a Robotics Workstation to start creating their Servo.

What your Sims Will Need

Creating a Servo in the Sims 4 can take a lot of time. But having one is worth it! To be able to build a Servo, your Sims would need to have these specific parts, which they can easily order using the computer:

  • 10 Electronic Upgrade parts
  • 15 Common Upgrade parts
  • 5 Kitchen Upgrade parts
  • 2 Plumbing Upgrade parts
  • 18 Mechanisms
  • 12 Computer Chips
  • 75 Robot Salvage parts

Once your Sims have successfully created a Servo, they can sell it or activate it! If they activate it, your Sim will proceed to shock Servo with a jolt of electricity wherein, after, a charming animation will play out. Then, your Sims will have to choose Servo’s gender and name. Much like any other Sim Sim, a Servo also has its own traits, aspirations, and designated look. But hey, if you don’t want to go through the hassle of building a Servo, you can also buy one using our Unlock All Items Cheat!

How a Servo Works in The Sims 4

You can change anything you wish about a Servo on live mode. The only thing you can’t change about this special Sim is its age group, which will stay in the young adult category. As they are robots, Servos do not age and can’t die of old age. However, it is still possible for them to die! If your Servo breaks down and isn’t repaired for a certain length of time, they will perish. And once they pass away, they will get their own special tombstone made of their scrap metal. They also would not be able to come back as ghosts.

A Servo can WooHoo with a sim, but it cannot have any biological children. If you want a Servo family though, it’s great to know that a Servo can adopt Sim children! That way, they can have a family that they can call their own. Children that Servos adopt will have them as a parent on their family tree.

Servo Needs on The Sims 4

Of course, a Servo also has needs just like a regular sim! Those needs are Fun, Social, Durability, and Charge. But unlike other Sims, they do not need to bathe, eat, or use the toilet. However, their Charge need is considered as their precious “sleep”. Once a Servo’s battery is low, it will need to recharge, causing it to be unavailable for a few hours. You shouldn’t let their Durability drop as well, or else they will break down and if unfixed for a long time, they will die. You can either have a Sim tune a Servo up to increase its Durability need or have the Servo perform it on itself (once it reaches a higher level).

Just like any other electronic device, a Servo is also not immune to water. So, you should never let them go outside in the rain without an umbrella. Additionally, you shouldn’t instruct them to bathe or swim at all! Or else, you will risk having them break down and in need of a repair. There are currently no enhancements available to make a Servo immune to water.

Servo Enhancements in The Sims 4

A sim with a high Robotics skill can make a Servo even better by performing enhancements on it! Both Sims and Servos can learn these skills. There are a total of 10 enhancement levels that a Servo can go through. In order to progress to the next level, they will need to learn more skills. But, they can also progress by downloading enhancement data. However, this is a very slow process and the Servo isn’t functional at all during this time.

Different Enhancement Levels of Servo

Here are the things that Servos can do depending on the level that they have:

  • Level 1– For level 1, Servos start with an increase in their charge gain by 10%. They can now also download enhancement data.
  • Level 2 – On level 2, a Servo will get a decrease in its durability decay of 10% and a bunch of new behavior modules.
  • Level 3 – For this next level, a Servo on the Sims 4 will gain skills 10% faster, will now be able to self-repair, and will receive even more behavior modules.
  • Level 4 – A Servo that has reached level 4, has an improved battery life of 10%, more behavior modules, and the ability to turn them on or off!
  • Level 5 – For level 5, you get an increased charge speed by 25%! Now you Servo can charge even faster and get on with their day!
  • Level 6 – A Servo that is on level 6, gets an improvement to its durability of 25% and more behavior modules.
  • Level 7 – Once they reach level 7, Servos can learn all skills 25% faster.
  • Level 8 – On level 8, a Servo’s Charge decay is decreased by 25% and they’ll receive new behavior modules.
  • Level 9 – For this next level, a Servo receives an even bigger bonus, now learning all skills 50% faster.
  • Level 10 – And, for the final level, a Servo gets a 50% faster charge time and the final behavior modules!

Behavior modules are basically what chips were for robots on The Sims 3. They dictate what your Sim’s Servo will do, allowing them to efficiently prioritize tasks. Think of them as traits for your Servo! There are a total of 6 different behavior modules to explore.

  • Eco-Friendly Tech: Your Servos will take care of gardening.
  • Parameterize and Sanitize: Servos will clean around the lot.
  • Fix-O-Matic: No need for a repairman! Your Servos will repair broken objects.
  • Party Machine: Having parties? No fret! Servos will do the tasks on parties, too.
  • RoboNanny: Servos will care for children autonomously.
  • Sim Defence Matrix: If there are vampires or uninvited guests, Servos will defend your Sims.
