Since having the 2x life span mod (found here, by the way: http://modthesims.info/d/437709) made it really tedious ("GROW UP ALREADY, TODDLER!!!), and since I still think Maxis's 4 days is too short for a toddler to learn basic skills, I decided to make one that was one and a half times the normal length--i.e. half the age was added to the length. The only thing I couldn't change (as discovered while working on a requested age mod) is the length of babies. I almost don't mind this because I get impatient at them anyway, but if I do try to alter that age, it seems the mod doesn't work. Or I'm a daft monkey with a stolen cornea. Again. (My way of saying I'm an idiot)

As a result, the ages are as follows:

Babies: 3
Toddlers: 6
Children: 12
Teenagers: 23
Adults: 44
Elders: I can't actually remember, but I multiplied both the aspiration bonus days and the basic days.

This will only take effect when your Sim reaches the next age transition--however, if you've only just begun playing them (but spawned them prior to downloading this), or don't mind fiddling a bit, there are mods that can reset your age. My personal favorite is CtfG's "Age Duration Resetter", found here: http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=195787. It's easier than fiddling about with SimPE (you have to do MATH there! :fear: )
