Seasons, Time & Ageing

Seasons & Time
I currently play with all seasons set to 28 days, to allow for plenty of time in each season, although it frequently doesn’t feel like it’s enough! I’m searching for ways to extend the seasons but so far had no luck.

I switched ageing off at the beginning of this game and I age up everyone manually on their birthdays.
The exception to this rule is for the younger sims. Toddlers are aged up on their birthday until they’re due to start school (see Primary Education).

For school-aged toddlers, children and teenagers, they officially age up in the Autumn, just before they start school. Teenagers leaving secondary education age up in summer, just as school ends for the summer, after they turn 18. This is for starting Uni/work purposes.
A Young Adult ages to Adult on their 40th birthday.
An adult ages to Elder on the 60/65th birthday (undecided yet).

  1. I’m still going through your gameplay posts, so maybe you’ve answered this elsewhere but how do you handle elder deaths, with aging off? That’s something I’m still fine-tuning with my Sims 4 and haven’t quite figured out how I want to do it.


    1. Haven’t covered that yet myself. I’m not completely sure myself but I’m thinking I might cheat it. I’d prefer them to be more spontaneous and not pre-planned, as it were but I really don’t want aging on at all. So I really haven’t figured that out either yet.
