11/25/18 UPDATE!!! Version 3

I'm not sure what patch broke this mod, but it is now fixed! Sometime in the past year EA added variance to the life stage lengths which is what broke V2, but I threw that out the window! Age lengths are still the same as the original mod. ALSO, please note that this mod only works with new households! I know, it's a bummer, but I don't know of any work-arounds. Something I haven't tried that may work however, is uploading your family to the gallery, and then adding then back into the game after updating the mod.

As well, if anyone has some preferred overhauls for sim lifespan, please let me know and I'd be more than happy to add other versions of the mod! (also gonna try to see if I can make a config file so ya'll can just set your preferred ages)

11/30/17 UPDATE!!! Version 2

Updated this mod to be compatible with Cats & Dogs/The New Patch. I'm not really sure what changed the XML files, but alas they were changed around. So now this mod edits a few more resources, but nonetheless I figured it out and had updated it.

Hey guys! This is the first mod I've made for TS4 and I would like to share it with you!

When I got TS4, I was disappointed to find out there was no lifespan sliders! I've struggled with the short adulthood; and after awhile of using other people's mods (and straight up turning auto-aging off), I decided it was time to create my own lifespan mod!! (sorry for all the !!!'s, I'm just very exited!!!)

Without further ado, here are the adjusted ages:

(Stage: Maxis Normal Lifespan Days --> My Normal Lifespan Days)

Baby: 3 --> 2 (unplayable/limited interactions=boring)
Toddler: 7 --> 8 (funnest life stage to play)
Child: 13 --> 15 (more time to do things other than complete aspiration)
Teen: 13 --> 10 (pretty much an adult but more school and less woohoo)
Young Adult: 20 --> 25 (a good time also the creator of a success future)
Adult: 20 --> 48 (gotta have time to raise those babies)
Elder: 10 --> 24 (what to do with all this spare time)

Under the cut is just me explaining my choices. Only read if you care to know

This Mod:
  • Changes the Maxis Normal Lifespan
  • Will conflict with any mod that does the same
  • Welcomes feedback

standard uncompress the .package file and put it in your mods folder (Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods)

Game Version:
11/25/18 UPDATE V3

Made with: PC Version
Tested with: PC Version

Modified Resource:
11/25/18 UPDATE V3

Any mod that modifies the same resource(s) will probably conflict

To everyone who enjoys this mod
Sims 4 Studio for letting me create this mod
