Accidentally let a sim age up and you weren't done with their younger years? Want a household full of just children? Play the "Home Alone" challenge? Maybe you want to set your neighbors age as well. Now you can do all of that!

(When making large age jumps the bodies may freak out for a moment. Remain calm, They'll fix themselves promptly.)

This mod adds in the following cheat: tm.setage
You can use this by opening the cheat console using ctrl+shift+c

Unlike the built-in "setage" cheat , tm.setage lets you specify Toddler, Child, Teen, Young_Adult, Adult, or Elder as well as lets you specify a neighbor to age.


NOTE: Unzip this file, and place the .ts4script file directly into your Mods folder. If you haven't enabled script mods before, you need to open your game and go to game options > Other > Script Mods and make sure it's checked. Restart your game. If an update has recently causes the mod to disappear from your main menu, you'll need to go back into game options and re-enable script mods.

Usage:

This cheat can be used in multiple ways.

Set active sim as adult: tm.setage

Set active sim as child: tm.setage child

Set neighbor "Bob Pancakes" as Elder: tm.setage elder Bob Pancakes

What happens to the command "tm.setage <age> <sim mame>" when there is more than one sim with the same name?
I'm assuming that's possible because it has been in previous games, I only played Sims 4 for a few days and got bored...

Not sure, I'll test that out if I get a chance. It should only work on sims that are actively loaded, so you could send one away if it's an issue.

Make sure script mods are enabled in your game options > other tab. Then restart the game.

Also make sure you're on the latest patch. You can do this by right-clicking the sims 4 in Origin and selecting Check for Updates.
Script Mods did not function until the newest patch due to a bug.

Hello, this mod seems very useful but it doesn't seem to work.

I have script mods enabled.
when i launch it even shows that its working like the other mods i have but aren't scripted.

I type
tm.setage teen (on active household)
and nothing seems to happen not even a notification on the cheat bar..

Check your game in origin, you most likely are not on the newest patch (Origin is supposed to update automatically but sometimes doesn't)
Open Origin, right-click sims 4 and select Check for Updates.

The versions prior to the latest patch are bugged and show script mods, but do not actually load them.

Don't need a mod for that, there's an option in the gameplay options to turn that off

While I do find it useful, personally I just use cas.fulleditmode so I can change the age for individual sims

This is far the best mod ever! Thank you really much. This mod is the best. Now i can have the best of both worlds? Child and adult ^^
Just a think: I noticed when i trigger the ages back and forth, my clothes become pretty much randomized. Does anybody know some way to keep the clothes? Maybe a way to save clothes for the future? I have tried to create a second casual outfit, but that didn´t do. Any ideas?

The problem with that is it clears your reward traits and according to some, it gives sims a "weird" face when they go back to young adult.

Then I'm officially blind because I didn't see it anywhere, but I was looking for it everywhere. (<=It seems that this smiley only works when something is written after it, like this one note. Or it's just me...)

Thank you so much. Your mods are not complicated to install or use, unlike some modifiers on this website and around the international Sims community.
