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?) - 12 Feedback Posts, 13 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

This mod is fine with the March 26th patch, the XML file used here hasn't been altered in their patch.

Thank you very much, this mod is really useful as the number of elders in community lots is too damn high! >
But after the last update the elders invasion is back! My poor young sims can't go out anymore
Is there any hope that this mod will be updated? If not, we will be doomed :O

This mod doesn't need an update, I've checked it. This doesn't stop elders from walking around in the streets, it just reduces the amount that is generated in the Homeless Households which is still working.

I wish there were racial flavors in order to have homogenous neighborhoods. I have too many black and white sims spawning in my Asian neighborhood. So it's nice getting rid of the old sims, it's just that too much racial diversity problem for me now. :/ I wish there were a genocide mod with this incorporated.
