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

Can I use this Mod to age up a baby to a toddler? Because I tried aging my baby up by clicking on the option on the crib but she keeps disappearing and if I reload the game she's there again but still as a baby. I've literally read every single one of those topics on the ea website but none of them helped me. I've tried everything. I saw someone do a video about this mod but he only used it on children and adults so I don't know if this is gonna work on my baby sim.

Not sure if you got this to work, but I was having the same issue. Then I accidentally saved after the baby disappeared. When I loaded my game again, she had reappeared in a new crib on the lot. I enabled testing cheats, then shift clicked (or whatever the command is) and then "reset" that sim. Then I was able to age her up! Try that and see if it helps!

Ok, I was having some problems with the mod, but found out a possible solution.
Basically, I've read somewhere that Sims 4 don't go deeper than 2 files for scripts mods... That means that if you want your script mod to work (like this case), you just have to put a folder with the .zip file (don't unzip it!) within the mods paste

Something like this:

...\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\SetAge

More than two folders and the game won't read it.
Hope it helps someone out there
