June 2016 - This mod doesn't work anymore. Please, don't download until I update it.
_____________________

15/06/2015 - This mod doesn't need to be updated for the 1.8.61 version.

I recommend you to check this mod: http://modthesims.info/d/547232
You can also have quadruplets, quintuplets or sextuplets: http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=545348
_________________

This mod allows you to choose how many babies you want to give birth.

You have to download one of these three flavours:
  • 1 baby for sure: your sim will give birth to one baby. I included this because since the last patch (December 16), people are having too many twins and triplets.
  • Twins for sure: your sim will give birth to twins.
  • Triplets for sure: your sim will give birth to triplets.

Installation:
Unzip the package file to your Mods folder.

Usage:
Having ONE flavour of this mod installed while your sim gives birth ensures you she will have the number of babies you want. Keep in mind that you need enough space in the household. For example, if you want triplets but you already have 6 sims in the household, then you will have only twins.
You don't need to have any of them installed during the conception.

Resource overrides and compatibility:
This just modifies 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". 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).

It's not supposed to. Pick one file and it enforces your choice for all births I believe ^_^

As I hope we have a new patch next week, I didn't see the point in trying to solve the odds because EA is supposed to do it. But you can use this mod to simulate what the game internally did -before going crazy- to decide the number of babies. Just go to random.org and ask for a random number between 1 and 100:
  • 1 - 89: 1 baby
  • 90 - 99: twins
  • 100: triplets

*The odds where 89% 1 baby, 10% twins and 1% triplets.

Maybe, but not from me, I don't have enough knowledge for that yet

Edit: I have been examining the possibility of a mod for quadruplets (and maybe quintuplets) and it looks easier than I thought at first. I have to work on it yet but I think I can do it. I'll let you know if I managed it or not soon

You are right, it would be better if you could choose from the game but... my first mod, just learning... patience!

You are right! You can change the installed flavour depending on the number of babies you want for the next birth.

Yes, I can do it if you want. But I would wait until next week to see if they give us a patch first.

Edit: I did it XD It's in the moderation queue... so it will be downloadable soon.

Don't add all the files at the same time because the game won't work well.
You have to choose how many babies you want to have and install that file. For example, if you want your sim to have twins, you have to put in your Mods folder the second flavour. When the time arrives, she will have twins. If next time you want triplets, you have to change the file in Mods folder (with the game closed).
I wish I could have made the option to choose in game but I don't know how to do that yet. Sorry.

Somebody asked before you and I have been analyzing the possibility of creating that mod this evening. It looks possible, but I have to make more testing. I'll let you know if everything works well soon
