Twins not looking alike as teens? Has anyone else had this problem?

AkiraAnubiseAkiraAnubise Posts: 240 Member
Well i'm doing the 100 baby challange with a male 'mother'. His first set were twin boys and the second time was twin girls. Anyways the boys were at the age to become teens, so i aged them up. As childern the oldest had a shade lighter hair then his dark brown haired brother. But as teens the oldest Ezra had white hair and purple eyes and his youngest twin Enzo had his fathers black hair and green eyes. Now the mother salem has white hair, but has pale blue eyes?

Anyways has anyone else have this problem with twins. I thought they were meant to look the same?

Since i can't post pictures

Salem: White hair and blue eyes 'mother'
J huntington II: brown hair and brown eyes.

Twin set 1 (huntington sons)
Ezra: White hair and purple eyes
Enzo: dark brown hair 'almost black' and green eyes

twin set 2 (father had brown hair and brown eyes)
Angelica: Brown hair and green eyes
Crystal: Brown hair and hazel eyes

    I'm not sure why their hair and eye color would change between child and teen, unless you are using custom hair colors and eye colors that may not exist at the child level.

    That said, I have yet to have a pair of identical twins. It can happen, but I'm not sure what the odds are.

    I used custom content for Salem. And i do have recolor of base came hairs. I may have to wait for the girls to grow up to see if they will look the same.

    Ah, but I think there are like two types of twins in real life - standard twins and identical twins, so I guess it is accounting for both.

    CC hair and eyes can affect color outcomes. Also, for maxis non natural colors, children cannot have them but may switch to them when becoming teens.

    As for not looking alike, there are fraternal and identical twins. Just because they are the same gender does not mean they have to be identical.

    CC Just kills genetics. Especially if you have like 20 default replacements like me
    I bought a GTX 1070 to play Sims 4.

    They are called fraternal and maternal twins.

    Fraternal twins twins are when the mother produces two eggs. These twins can look and behave as different as any brother and/or sister.

    Maternal twins are when the mother's egg splits in two after conception. These twins are identical in appearance, but rarely in attitude.

    Ive noticed the game does appear to account for both types. I've had both identical twins (maternal), and twins that resulted in one boy and one girl (fraternal). But I haven't had any that were the same sex that appeared fraternal yet.

    Just a little trivia I thought some might find interesting.

    not all twins come out identical, also mods will affect your problem.

    That would be fraternal twins and identical twins. For the record, fraternal twins can be of the same gender, like my great-grandmother and her twin sister. They don't look any more alike than singleton siblings.
