Abduction Effect Equalizer

This mod makes it so that both genders have a chance of being impregnated after being abducted by aliens (33% chance for females). The Equalizer_Teen package takes it a step further by extending this possibility to female teens. Without this mod, only male sims can be impregnated by alien abduction.


Warning: Be careful when using this with any mod that increases the rate of abduction. That is, unless you want to double your household size, and to help proliferate the alien menace .



This is a pure scripting mod, and as such will likely never conflict with anything. This was tested with patch 1.55, but any post-Seasons patch should work fine. Most future patches should work well enough, as well.



Install Instructions:
Just plop it into your packages folder and enjoy.



Currently Working On:
*Male teenage pregnancy is currently being worked on.
*Making the chance of pregnancy after abduction for females use the same variable as males.
*A menu to allow all settings related to this mod to be changed in game
*See what I can do about getting inactives abducted (or, at least, simulate it somehow)
*Possibly allow chances of pregnancy to be changed in game

If you have any ideas for additional things to add, please leave a comment, and I'll see what I can do

I've been waiting for this for quite some time, thank you so much for sharing it. I do have one question, though. I've not been a big fan of male pregnancy, so can I use another mod that eliminates male pregnancy in conjunction with your mod, and not have a conflict?

All should be well, mate. This mod doesn't modify any files, and thus should be compatible with just about everything.

Also, you are welcome guys. Let me know if you have any ideas on where else to take this

I have a mod that lowers the chances of male pregnancy chances. If I use this mod will it decrease as well or is it independent and will still be at 33% even if I have a mod that decrease male pregnancy?

Currently it is set at 33%. I'm planning on working on this after dinner today, and fixing that issue is on my todo list.

I`m really very happy about your mod. I always thought that it's quite unjust that only males could have alien babies. I'm so thankful to you!

As I understand the pregnancy bit in the default game and from all my observation while playing, it is only my active sims who can be abducted by aliens and impregnated. Whereas I would like to see the inactives, those townies, being abducted and possibly impregnated by the aliens. Is it possible in your mod to turn this on for the inactives, or swap it around such that it is those other inactive sims who are targeted?

This is cool and useful as I'd prefer my female sims to be pregnant with aliens. So now at least they have a chance. Thank you

Shimrod, that is actually due to how EA does alien abductions. Only the active household is, currently, considered as valid abduction candidates. Now, if they were ever abducted, this mod should do its job well enough.

However, I will be adding that as something to look into.

wonder if there's any way to get supernaturals kid with the alien pregnancy since far as my results been, they seem immune to it.

But great work, downloading now.

It is currently not possible. However, it will be possible in the next version, which should be out this weekend.

drake1storm,
Thank you, thank you, thank you soooo much! I have been begging for a mod like this since Seasons came out! It's never made sense to me that the males are the ones that get pregnant and it's always kinda creeped me out. I would have done this myself but they seem to have hidden that coding rather well. So, props to you for discovering it and being able to tweak it!

This is really a wonderful mod. I LOVE this mod very much.
Thanks for making this. And I'm looking forward to news mods with higher chance of getting pregnant.

SO, yeah, the update is going to be a little delayed. Something is causing my test versions to not load all the time, and I can't make make much progress until I can test if it is working.

For some reason, this is not working in my game. :c
My Sims have an action to go investigate the strange lights but there are no strange lights in the road and then the action just goes away after they stand there for a while.
Any idea why? I'm playing in Dragon Valley.

Could you make children also be able to be abducted? (But make them have a lower chance)

Sorry about the late replies, work has been rather nasty lately and has been causing several (both literal and figurative) headaches.

Siha- Several worlds suffer major pathing issues, including IP. This isn't so much a problem with this mod as EA flubbing their pathing.

OpelSpeedster- When I get the time to finish the next update, it should be a rather easy change using the "abduction simulator" bit I am trying to add with only a few changes. However, this would only be a simulated abduction, currently.

I'm looking forward to the improvements you have planned for this mod. But even as it is, it is going on my must-have list. Ever since I installed Seasons, I'd never get any natural alien pregnancies, because they always abduct the women - every single time! I got so fed up that I started using Pollinate to give abducted females their babies. All because I couldn't find a mod like this one. Thank you! ;D

I'm having this issue too. Is there a mod or fix for pathing issues? I was really disappointed I didn't get abducted. I worked so hard and... nothing.... .

As for everyone else not being able to get the women pregnant by aliens... Umm you can fall in love with one and try for baby that way. I'm finding it hard to believe that no one knows that.... That's what I had to do because I couldn't get abducted, it got canceled.
