Update: The mod broke with the November patch and the cats and dogs expansion, I've now fixed it. I've also added cats and dogs, they work a little differently as their age is a range rather than one number, so each pet will live to a different age. Please see below for details of the pets lifespans.

Based on sims 3 seasons where 4 weeks equalled 1 sim year. Therefore sims will age 1 year every 28 sim days. This means if you keep track you can have real ages for all your sims and know when their birthday is, e.g. if a sim is born on a Sunday then every 4th Sunday will be their birthday. Maybe a bit long for legacy play but useful for storytelling purposes.

Old lifespan:
Baby - 2
Toddler - 7
Child - 13
Teenager - 13
Young adult - 20
Adult - 20
Elder - 10

Dog
Puppy - 1.5
Adult - 17-20
Elder - 5-7

Cat
Kitten - 1.5
Adult - 21-24
Elder - 6-8

New Lifespan:
Baby - 28 (0 years old)
Toddler - 84 (1-3 years old)
Child - 252 (4-12 years old)
Teenager - 140 (13-17 years old)
Young adult - 336 (18-29 years old)
Adult - 840 (30-59 years old)
Elder - 588 (60-80 years old)

Dog
Puppy - 28 (0-1 years old)
Adult - 224-252 (1-9 years old) Ages to elder anywhere between 9 and 10 years old
Elder - 56-112 (10-13 years old) Passes away anywhere between 11-13 years old

Cat
Kitten - 28 (0-1 years old)
Adult - 252-280 (1-10 years old) Ages to elder anywhere between 10 and 11 years old
Elder - 56-140 (11-15 years old) Passes away anywhere between 12-15 years old

The above numbers are based on the lifespan being set to normal. Short will halve the above numbers and long will double them.

Conflicts
This mod alters the sims.aging xml and will therefore conflict with any mod altering the same file.
