Fewer Elders (1.19)

by Shimrod101 Posted 7th Nov 2014 at 5:11 PM - Updated 4th Jun 2016 at 10:29 PM by Shimrod101 : Update to 1.19 patch
117 Comments / replies (Who?) - 2 Feedback Posts, 23 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

Additional Credits:
Created with the use of s4pe by Kuree and Sims4Group, and the Sims4 XML Extractor by velocitygrass.
And the Sims 4 XML Extractor by scumbumbo.

Even tho I'm an Elder in real Life I appreciate this mod. The game does fill up with elders rather quickly. I'd rather my sims meet younger sims and "Grow old together"!

Thanks, there was such a ridiculously disproportionate amount of elders when I'd go to the lounge I started cas.fulleditmodeing them all down a bracket or two.

Hi Shimrod,
to get your mod working is it necesary to start a new game or does it work with a running one?
Thanks in advance, HP

It will work in any current save game, or a new game; it doesn't matter.
