Higher Chance Per Day Elder Will Die

In my games Elders tend to live a lot longer than they're supposed to, especially my animals. So I had a look around why and soon found the answer. After an elder sim or pet has passed the total lifetime span set there is a chance each day that a sim will die. This chance is not cumulative (which means a sim of 90 days and a sim of 140 days has the same chance to die), and it differs with life spans.

The original EA values for both sims and pets are these chances:

Short 30%
Medium 20%
Normal 14%
Long 6%
Epic 3%

This mod offers five flavors - 10%, 25%, 33%, 50%, 75%, and 100% - that gives both sims and pets in all life spans the same chance. I decided to do this because I thought it was a bad idea balance-wise to let sims on longer life spans live even longer when they've already had a very long life. So if you choose the 100% flavor your sim will die very soon after they have maxed out their life span.

Compatibility
This mod conflicts with all mods that make changes to the AgingManager_0xc91a73dbff35eeca resource, such as my own mod Human Life Span for Supernatural Sims.

Thank you! This has endlessly bugged me. I love playing legacy families and it seems like all the kids age up, move out of the house and immediately start dating elders because there's so damn many in my town. Haha

Really? It's a flat chance per day, not cumulative? I always wondered why I never got messages that my townies had died. How strange! Thank you for making this!

Hi and thank you for this mod! :D
It's because I find it amazing that I'd like to know if there will be any chance in the future to have both this mod and your human lifespan for supernaturals' mod compatible.
It's because that I highly appreciate your efforts that I tell you not to worry if it's too much work.

I am pretty happy about this. I am currently playing a game where the mother-in-law is still living WEEEEELLLLL past the time she is supposed to die. I am waiting to the 90 day mark (I had changed the value to 78 total days) but I think I will just download your mod lol. Thank you for this. :)

How does this differ from the death push in Nraas?

This will save me from constantly having to use NRaas mod to force kill my elderly sims. All my hot young males and females in the game get hooked up to these elderly people instead of hooking up with younger sims. Thank you so much for creating this mod. I'm downing now and will start using right away.

Just wanted to say, this mod works fabulously. I was sick and tired of my town being full of elderly sims that never seem to die and I got tired of having to use Nraas to go in and force kill them off. Your mod has helped my towns be more manageable with way less old people. So, Thank You...Thank You....Thank You!

It works better than the death push in Nraas. I wasn't getting but 1 or 2 older sims dying off in my towns and I would end up having to force kill the older people when I started to run out of houses. This mod kills a set amount off each day instead of one or two a sim week. You can select the xml file that fits your needs. I use the 100 percent chance of a elderly sim dying because my towns seem to always fill up with more elderly people. This has made my towns population more even once you get into playing multiple generations.

This is excellent. Any chance of a 75% odds flavor, though?

Sorry I'm so late to get back to you, I haven't checked in here much lately. A 75% flavour is easily done, I will see if I can add one tonight.

Edit: 75% flavour added!

Thank you very much for this mod. Elderly sims are in my Game really irritating, once I've installed this mod, the same day died very-very many.

Thank you! I've had an elderly cat that has stayed alive for 2 generations, going on the third and it's bugging me to no end!
