This mod has been updated for the Toddlers patch. I was able to update the mod, but not my game, so please let me know if the update works well!

Introduction
With every sims game I love to play with the same lifespans. For The Sims 2 I found the ideal balance (for me that's Realistic Ages 1 Month). For Sims 3 you can change the lifespans as much as you want, so there's no need for a mod.
And now I'm so glad I can announce I made a mod for The Sims 4 realistic ages 1 month.
It has (for normal) the same lengths as my Realistic Ages 1 Month mod for The Sims 2.
Short divides the lengths in half. Long doubles the lengths.

Update March 26 2015, game version 1.5.139.1020
If your game is updated to the patch that game out on March 26 2015 or above, then you need the updated version.


Additional info
Originally my idea was to create a mod 3 in 1. So short would have been realistic ages 1 year, normal realistic ages 1 month and long realistic ages 1 day.
During the making of such a mod I noticed that the longest an age can be is 1548 days. So I decided to make 2 seperate mods (realistic ages 1 month and 1 year (which is upcoming)). So it appears it's not possible to create a mod realistic ages 1 day for sims 4.

Requests
I understand that there will be people who would like to see different spans for the different ages as I made.
Feel free to request a different span to your personal liking: http://bit.ly/p9ymWC

Lifespan changes


As you can see I added 1/4 of the length of the toddler stage (TS2) to the baby stage (TS4) and I added 3/4 of the toddler stage (TS2) to the child stage (TS4).

Compatibility
This mod is based on Game Version 1.0.732.20. If you notice any problems, please, let me know.

Conflicts
This mod edits the AgeTuning XML, and will conflict with any other mod that does the same.
There are already some other versions of the AgeTuning XML so remember this!

Install
Unzip the archive and place the .package file in your Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods folder.

Or if you haven't done this yet, do the following first:
1. - Drop the .package in /Mods as usual
2. - Make an empty folder named "unpackedmod" in /Mods
3. - In your resource.cfg, add the line

DirectoryFiles unpackedmod autoupdate

(i.e.: open that file in a text editor and add the line "DirectoryFiles unpackedmod autoupdate" (without quotes) underneath whatever other text it has.)

I don't play the game much so I haven't test that.
I can only update this mod if the original creator updated it.

@winston111 @Eiszimmer
I haven't played the game in a very long time, because I miss pets too much (and toddlers, but that's solved now).
Also I think it might be needed to make a whole new mod from scratch to include toddlers.
When I update my game to the toddlerspatch and I have some time I might give that a shot.

I'm working on an update to work with the toddlers patch. Such updates are always announced on twitter/facebook and not in the specific thread. So folow me on twitter(or facebook) to see updates at once.

I don't support the lifespanmods for TS4 anymore.
But I have written a tutorial so you can update it yourself:
http://s2idownloads.blogspot.be/sea...orial%20-%20TS4
Just be sure you use an update lifespan mod as a base:
http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=552222
or
http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=590549

The reason why I don't support them anymore, is because nearly every time there's a new patch, update, game pack or EP there's a huge chance this needs to be updated.
I hardly play the game myself anymore and if I play it's totally without CC 'cause nearly every time there's a new patch, update, game pack or EP there's a huge chance +50% of my CC needs to be updated.
