Back in the days of TS2, Knowledge Sims were obsessed with aliens and would constantly roll wants to be abducted. I really liked that, so I wanted to bring it back to The Sims 4 in the form of a new aspiration.
Let me introduce you to the custom UFO Investigator aspiration! This a knowledge aspiration focused on maxing the Rocket Science skill and visiting the Alien World of Sixam.
Achieve Level 3 Rocket Science Skill (75)
Stargaze for 6 Hours (75)
Collect 3 Alien Species (250)
Collect 3 Space Prints (250)
Collect 2 Space Rocks (250)
Achieve Level 6 Rocket Science skill (500)
Reach Level 4 of the Scientist or Astronaut career (500)
Unmask 3 Aliens (600)
Achieve Level 10 Rocket Science skill (1500)
Travel to Alien World (750)
Collect 4 Geodes (750)
Those Sims who complete all the requirements of this aspiration will receive the Alien Guru trait. These Sims are very knowledgeable about aliens and their powers. In particular, Alien Gurus:
Can prepare Alien Juice and Space Energy Drink,
Will always get Focused after abduction,
Can transmute metals, revive dead alien collectibles, erase memories, empathize and analyze the personalities of other Sims,
Can use their cell phone to contact aliens,
Know the secret handshake of aliens.
After thoroughly studying the lives of extraterrestrials, Alien Gurus have came up with a clever way to communicate with aliens. Yea, it's using their cell phone. Click on the Entertainment category in your Sim's phone to access this new interaction.
Pick a Sim and aliens will come to abduct them inmediately.
Only teens or older Sims can be picked. Aliens cannot be picked.
The caller will get a slight Fun and Social boost.
They will also build Mischief skill.
Geeks, Goofballs and abductees with the Cheerful trait will gain relationship points with the caller (unless they're Hot-Headed or Squeamish). Other Sims will react negatively.
Male abductees have a 50% of returning pregnant.
I have included several whims that are exclusive to Alien Gurus and Sims who have selected the UFO Investigator aspiration track. Click below to see them:

Fake aliens can now revive dead alien collectibles and transmute metals.
Unzip with 7-zip (do not use WinRAR) and place r3m_ufo_investigator.package and r3m_ufo_investigator.ts4script in your Mods folder. Make sure to enable Script Mods in the game options.
This mod requires Get to Work. It was made with game version 1.13 (but I'm keen it is still compatible with later versions, let me know if there's a problem though).
Q: New interactions do not show up!
: Did you use WinRAR to unzip the mod? Please re-download and try unzipping with 7-zip and make sure to enable Script Mods in the game options. If the problem persists, post here and state your game version.
The new aspiration, trait, interactions and whims do not override any of the game resources. However, I had to edit some resources to give alien powers to Alien Gurus. Therefore, this mod will conflict with any other creation that modifies these:
