Fewer Elders (1.19)

by Shimrod101 Posted 7th Nov 2014 at 6:11 PM - Updated 4th Jun 2016 at 11:29 PM by Shimrod101 : Update to 1.19 patch
117 Comments / replies (Who?) - 4 Feedback Posts, 21 Thanks Posts
This mod is updated to V3 for the 1.19 patch.

The V2 file updates this mod for the 1.15.55 patch.

This mod reduces the number of Elders generated, as compared to YA and Adult, when the game is generating new single individuals into the Homeless Household bin. The file in this mod is used for example, by the Lounge venue file asking for a sim or more to fill up the Lounge when you visit.

The "weighted chance" for Adult and particularly YA is increased in comparison to the chance for Elder, which vanilla game has simply set too high.

This mod can be used together with my Reduced Townie Generating mod, as this one uses a different file than the SimFilter files. This mod here is not dependent upon the other one though.

This is a .package mod, unzip it and place the .package file in the Mods folder or a subfolder. Uses the file called template_chooser_YA_through_Elder_48C2D5ED_00000000_0000000000012405.xml

Sounds good. I'll still have elders, just fewer, right? That would make for a more natural looking world. Elders are there, certainly, but there are less in real life since people, sadly, don't always survive the younger stages.

Thank you - it did seem that every time I took my Sim into a public area to meet other sims the majority was older and then when I got to know them better found out they had one foot already in the grave.

Thank you, Shimrod for this and all the other mods you provide that make my game so much better. I always know I can trust your mods to be reliable and not too over the top (cheaty) in feel. I don't think I'd play TS4 at all without your help.

The amount of elders has been bugging me since I started playing. Especially in lounges. Thanks!

I'm fairly sure there's a bug in this mod - it's giving female Sims male names. It's not game breaking, but a minor annoyance. I'm friends with two women named Michael and Tyler. Thanks anyway! There's now a perfect balance of Elders in my neighbourhood.

I'm relatively sure this mod isn't doing it; I've been using this mod for a number of days longer than it's been available here, and I haven't seen it, the females are all given normal female names. There isn't anything in the XML used in this mod which can be "bugged" anyway. It lists up Adult sim, YA sim, and Elder sim, with the weighted chance number, the numbers I altered. I haven't written anything new here, or made up stuff.
