August 2016 - Updated for the last version (1.22).

Please, make a new comment if you want a personalized flavour. I wrote a "tutorial" so you can learn how to personalize it yourself. It's at the end of this post.

See below for a new section: "Known issues" if you are using the "pregnancy scan" mod.
_____________________

This mod enables the possibility of having quadruplets, quintuplets or even sextuplets in The Sims 4. By default, the maximum number of babies you can have is triplets, do you dare to raise 4, 5 or 6 babies at the same time?

I have included several flavours, so you can choose how risky you want to be. Note that by default (before the december patch) the odds were: 89% of having 1 baby, 10% of twins and 1% triplets:

QUADRUPLETS
  • Quadruplets 87 - 10 - 2 - 1: enables the possibility of giving birth quadruplets. The odds will be: 87% 1 baby, 10% twins, 2% triplets and 1% quadruplets. My recommendation if you want to enable quadruplets but quintuplets are too much for you.
  • Quadruplets 75 - 15 - 7 - 3: enables the possibility of giving birth quadruplets. The odds will be: 75% 1 baby, 15% twins, 7% triplets and 3% quadruplets.
  • Quadruplets for sure: your sim will give birth to quadruplets if this mod is installed during the labour.

QUADRUPLETS AND QUINTUPLETS
  • Quadruplets and quintuplets 86 - 10 - 2.3 - 1 - 0.7: enables the possibility of giving birth quadruplets and quintuplets. The odds will be: 86% 1 baby, 10% twins, 2.3% triplets, 1% quadruplets and 0.7% quintuplets. My recommendation if you want to enable quintuplets.
  • Quadruplets and quintuplets 55 - 25 - 13 - 5 - 2: enables the possibility of giving birth quadruplets and quintuplets. The odds will be: 55% 1 baby, 25% twins, 13% triplets, 5% quadruplets and 2% quintuplets.
  • Quadruplets and quintuplets 50 - 20 - 15 - 9 - 6: enables the possibility of giving birth quadruplets and quintuplets. The odds will be: 50% 1 baby, 20% twins, 15% triplets, 9% quadruplets and 6% quintuplets. (asked by Simtonía)
  • Quadruplets and quintuplets 30 - 24.5 - 20.5 - 15 - 10: enables the possibility of giving birth quadruplets and quintuplets. The odds will be: 30% 1 baby, 24.5% twins, 20.5% triplets, 15% quadruplets and 10% quintuplets. You are being very risky with this choice! (asked by PM)
  • Quadruplets and quintuplets 50-50: your sim will give birth quadruplets or quintuplets. The odds will be: 50% quadruplets and 50% quintuplets.
  • Quintuplets for sure: your sim will give birth to quintuplets if this mod is installed during the labour.
  • Quintuplets identical for sure: your sim will give birth to identical quintuplets if this mod is installed during the labour. (asked by thaura)

QUADRUPLETS, QUINTUPLETS AND SEXTUPLETS
  • Quadruplets, quintuplets & sextuplets 3 - 7 - 15 - 20 - 25 - 30: enables the possibility of giving birth quadruplets, quintuplets and sextuplets. The odds will be: 3% 1 baby, 7% twins, 15% triplets, 20% quadruplets, 25% quintuplets and 30% sextuplets. (asked by dani_cat_84) [color=red]Download it again, please!![/color] I made a mistake so your pregnancies will last only 6 hours if you don't update it.
  • Quadruplets, quintuplets & sextuplets 25 - 21 - 18 - 16 - 12 - 8: enables the possibility of giving birth quadruplets, quintuplets and sextuplets. The odds will be: 25% 1 baby, 21% twins, 18% triplets, 16% quadruplets, 12% quintuplets and 8% sextuplets. (asked by Sweethrtcc)
  • New!! Quadruplets, quintuplets & sextuplets same odds: enables the possibility of giving birth quadruplets, quintuplets and sextuplets. The odds will be identical, that means you will have a random number of babies (between 1 and 6). (asked by Muse360)
  • Quadruplets, quintuplets & sextuplets 86.5 - 7 - 2.5 - 1.5 - 1 - 0.5 + multiples identical for sure: enables the possibility of giving birth quadruplets, quintuplets and sextuplets. If you have multiples, they will be identical for sure. (asked by pikeman101)
  • Sextuplets for sure: your sim will give birth to quintuplets if this mod is installed during the labour.

If you want new flavours, just ask!

Have in mind that you won't have quadruplets or quintuplets or sextuplets if you do not have enough space at the household... unless you are using a mod to enable larger households.


Usage:
Have ONE flavour of this mod installed while your sim gives birth. Note that if your sims have fertile trait (or have drank fertility potion) then the odds for a multiple birth will be higher.
You don't need to have any of them installed during the conception.

Resource overrides and compatibility:
This just overrides the S4_03B33DDF_00000000_06F6554A25E46FD0 XML resource.
It is incompatible with XML mods that modify the same resource. For example, MasterDinadan's "Longer/Shorter Pregnancy Lenght" or my "Choose number of babies". But it is likely to be compatible with script mods like java7nerd's "Pregnancy Scan".

This mod is updated to work with version 1.7.62 or 1.7.65 (May 14-15, 2015).

Known issues:
  • If you use the "Pregnancy Scan" mod: note that the pregnancy scan may give you two diferent results if you type "pregnancy.scan" more than once. Each time I have tried it, my sim gave birth the next to last number of babies the pregnancy.scan told me.
    For example:

    The last time I checked it said "3 girls and 3 boys". The next to last said "1 boy", and that's what I had.

_______________________________________

MAKE YOUR OWN FLAVOUR

What do you need?
s4pe - https://github.com/Kuree/Sims4Tools/releases

Steps
1.- Choose your odds. Let's say you want to make a mod where the odds are 40% (1 baby) - 12% (2) - 8% (3) - 20% (4) - 20% (5 babies).
Then you need to download one of my mods that enables to have quadruplets and quintuplets. You are going to modify it. For example I'm going to use the "Quadruplets and quintuplets 86 - 10 - 2.3 - 1 - 0.7".

2.- Extract the .package and open it with the s4pe.

3.- Look for the file tagged "ITUN" on the left column.


Click on it with the right botton and choose "Notepad".


4.- Edit > Find >
Code:
<T n="size">1</T>
.

5.- Insert your percentage of having 1 child
Code:
<T n="weight">HERE</T>
in the following line.


6.- Edit > Find >
Code:
<T n="size">2</T>
.

7.- Change the value
Code:
<T n="weight">HERE</T>
for your percentage of having two babies.
For example, I want to have twins the 12% of the times, so I write:
Code:
        <T n="size">2</T>
        <T n="weight">12</T>


8.- Repeat 6 and 7:
Triplets:
Code:
<T n="size">3</T>


Quadruplets:
Code:
<T n="size">4</T>

etc.

9.- Save your changes and close Notepad.

10.- "Yes" when s4pe asks if you want to commit changes.

11.- File > Save as...

12.- Your new mod is ready!!


EXTRA changes you can make easily

You can change any of the following at the same time:

-Percentage of multiplets that are identical: find
Code:
<T n="MONOZYGOTIC_OFFSPRING_CHANCE">
and change the 33.33 that follows for the percentage you want. By default, the 33.33% of the multiplets are going to be identical.

-How many hours does the pregnancy last: divide 1/(number of hours you want the pregnancy to last). For example, I want it to last 8 hours, then 1/8 = 0.125.
Find
Code:
<T n="PREGNANCY_RATE">
and change the following number (0.016667) for your result. In my case:
Code:
<T n="PREGNANCY_RATE">0.125</T>

Hopefully we're safe on that front.

(Although I did find pre-patch that it didn't seem to be producing quads/quints? Does it conflict with the pregnancy mega mod?)


I use both and I've gotten up to four babies at once, I believe. I use the second to last mod too. I haven't seen six babies in my game yet. Actually I updated the mod for personal use for the recent patch/Get To Work. I'm still testing to see if it works, I've gotten triplets so far, but nothing more than that yet.

I thought I had to restart my sims again cause it got screwed up. Are you telling me I am not the only one with the patch screwed up?!?! I already started redoing it >.<..... Oh well I needed to take mods and cc out I don't like anyway. Also I was wondering if you could do one where the odds are all the same....Like for the four babies it would all be 25% for 1, 25% for 2 and so on. Not sure if you could do it, like it would screw up the game. I just thought it be gun cause you would have no idea!! Also do a 5 baby version too. Maybe a 6 baby if possible. Thanks ahead of time!

Can you download all of them at once? I know that you have to install them all separately. Don't know how to do this, very new to modding! Can I only download one if I just want to try out having twins?

Each download has only a file... you can download as much as you want, but only 1 can be installed in your Mods folder.

SInce the most recent update with the new town, the mod has made it so i can't even play the game (which is a shame, because this is my favorite mod and i hate to have to not use it). It originally would just zoom in on the house that the family i was trying to load in was in, and then freeze leaving it so i would have to shut it down. After it stopped doing that, in game you would have no one in your family. It would make it so you wouldn't have a sim at all and you couldn't click on anything in the game. I checked my other mods with the game and none of them have any problems with the update. I also don't have any other baby-related mods, so i don't think that would be the case. I'm not sure if others are having this issue, but i would like to know. This isn't in any way to criticize what you're doing, i absolutely love the mod and definitely would not be able to ever make one myself xD I just figured i would reach out to let you know this is happening and to see if anyone would have some advice for it

Don't worry, I appreciate your comment. It's the only way for me to know if there's any issue!
I re-checked the code and I can't find anything so... One question: do you have the last version of the mod? (v3) What you are describing started happening a couple of updates ago and the v3 should have solved that.

Very nice
Page 5 of 8
pekesims also recommends you check the following:

If you want to choose to have 1 baby, twins or triplets >> "Choose number of babies"
If you want to change the odds for twins and triplets >> "Number of babies odds modifier (solve twins/triplets patch bug!)"
Both are incompatible with this mod.

Compatibles with my mod:
If you want to enable the possibility of having a larger household >> "Full House Mod - Increase your Household Size!"
If you want to enable the possibility of going for a baby in larger households >> "Try for Baby in Larger Households"
