Vampire Aging Enabled - With Life Extension

by Hadron1776 Posted 26th May 2017 at 7:47 AM - Updated 11th Dec 2017 at 7:20 PM by Hadron1776 : Added script function override - November patch
67 Comments / replies (Who?) - 15 Feedback Posts, 3 Thanks Posts
There have been requests for a mod that enables aging for vampires, which also provides a life extension to them. This mod makes it so that vampires will live about 5 times longer than other Sims.

> This life extension doesn't kick in until young adulthood, meaning young vampires will age normally.
-- Meaning the aging durations look like this:

Aging from Baby: 3 days normal/3 days vampire
Aging from Toddler: 7 days normal/7 days for vampire
Aging from Child: 13 days normal/13 days for vampire
Aging from Teen: 13 days normal/13 days for vampire
Aging from Young Adult: 24 days normal/120 days for vampire
Aging from Adult: 24 days normal/120 days for vampire
Aging from Elder: 10 days normal/50 days for vampire

> I also modified the UI so it says "days until age up" properly.


My normal Sim has 20 days left until aging up, as normal...


...but my Vampire has 100 days until aging up :D

Two files have been modified:
S4_62ECC59A_00000000_DA7597EAEB9BA388.gfx (SimInfoSummaryPanel.gfx)
and
S4_CB5FDDC7_00000011_0000000000024817.xml (trait_OccultVampire.xml)

Some script functions have also been replaced:

sims.aging.aging_mixin.AgingMixin.update_age_callbacks
sims.aging.aging_mixin.AgingMixin.advance_age_phase

Note that unlike other aging mods, this mod does not touch 'sims.aging.aging_tuning.xml' so it shouldn't conflict with it.

Also: Parenthood BG patch happened while this mod was in the moderation queue; this caused the summary panel GUI to be totally messed up. I saw that issue and corrected it. As a result, I don't think it'll work with earlier versions

Oops... I seem to have had a duplicate download... Corrected! Sorry about that!

-----UPDATE-----
> Added 2 new flavors! (Requested by SnowieSimmer)

- x2 flavor: Same as original mod, but multiplies age length by 2 instead of 5:

Age duration for:
-- Baby: 3 days
-- Toddler: 7 days
-- Child: 13 days
-- Teen: 13 days
-- Young adult: 48 days
-- Adult: 48 days
-- Elder: 20 days


- "Twilight Mode" flavor: YA and above live 5x longer than normal (same as original), Teen and under age up faster than normal:

- Age length for:
-- Baby: 2 days
-- Toddler: ~4.6 days
-- Child: ~8.6 days
-- Teen: ~8.6 days
-- Young Adult: 120 days
-- Adult: 120 days
-- Elder: 50 days

Requested by atanvarnie:
- x2/x4 flavor: Vampires will spend twice as long in the young ages of life, then live 4 times longer when older:

- Age length for:
-- Baby: 5 days
-- Toddler: 14 days
-- Child: 26 days
-- Teen: 26 days
-- Young Adult: 96 days
-- Adult: 96 days
-- Elder: 40 days

All flavors have the .package file that enables aging in the first place, so pick only one!

Updated 5/27/17:

Removed override of functions:
sims.aging.aging_mixin.AgingMixin._days_until_ready_to_age
sims.aging.aging_mixin.AgingMixin.age_progress_in_days

because there was no reason to have them.

I tried this mod in my Game and it is broken. The aging bar getting silver, you can see the days, but thats all, so i take it out. Sorry.

I would really love to try the mod, but it needs to be updated to Get Famous and the latest patches, so maybe you could do that when you have time?
Test Subject

The main mod file is indeed broken and I suspect is abandoned and will remain so BUT if you read the comments back at the end of page 2 you will see user jg6714 uploaded a working version of the x2 version which I am using and it works just fine. People that wanted the more longer life durations, sorry, you'll have to fix those yourself but I used the 2x version myself and am thankful jg6714 provided a fix. You have to download it from his post at the bottom of page 2.

Default Still working-ish
Seems to be working still but the last updates messed up the display/ui on it. Anyone still updating this?

In theory, now that I've worked out the kinks with one version the others should be fairly simple to update and I'll take crack at those when I have some more time.



Hi! I really would like you to update this. The reputation is broken with this.

I found that this mod no longer works with my game. It causes my game to fail to load into a household after the update today. Just thought to let you know.

Thanks, Nova ... unfortunately, it seems that with the new University expansion the aging process has been changed and so the mods are broken again.

Yes it's sure !
Unfortunately, I just watched the files from the Discover University Update and I'm not experienced enough to make the mod compatible with this update.
The GFX file has received some changes that make the default mod script invalid.... And I tried different manipulations, I still have errors :/

So if someone more experienced can update it, it would be great.

Ugh, I was afraid of that. I wonder if this is something that Deaderpool could finally be convinced to add to MC Command Center. Frankly surprised that he hadn't done so yet before ... but maybe no one asked?

Well, I chatted with EG over with the MCCC support team and he said he'd give it to DP to take a look at for consideration.

Well, I followed up finally on this with the MC Command Center crew and the word is DeaderPool said it's not possible to split the aging out and never was and the best he can do was what is in MCCC now (i.e. change the age where they become immortal or set them to age normally). Which this then begs the question of how it was done with Hadron's mod since it for sure made Vampires age more slowly. It also worked in unison with MCCC so you could turn ON MCCCs "vampires age normally" mode and then use Hadron's mod and they'd age 2x-3x more slowly but did eventually die of old age. Suffice to say all that broke with University as you know. I'm at a loss as to what can be done now for a fix.
