Vampire Aging Enabled - With Life Extension

by Hadron1776 Posted 26th May 2017 at 8:47 AM - Updated 11th Dec 2017 at 8:20 PM by Hadron1776 : Added script function override - November patch
52 Comments / replies (Who?) - 18 Feedback Posts, 7 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.

Updated 12/11/17:
This should work with the November patch now

Love this mod! Thank you! I have morkeus' aging mod so my "normal" lifespan is a lot longer for Sims. It is possible to make "extra long but not eternal Vampire lifespan with Twilight youth"?
Something like:
Aging from Baby: 10 days normal/3 days vampire
Aging from Toddler: 10 days normal/5 days for vampire
Aging from Child: 15 days normal/10 days for vampire
Aging from Teen: 15 days normal/15 days for vampire
Aging from Young Adult: 50 days normal/500 days for vampire
Aging from Adult: 50 days normal/500 days for vampire
Aging from Elder: 30 days normal/500 days for vampire
I would be SO HAPPY to have this mod with this extra long but not eternal Vampire lifespan <3.

This is such a cool idea! Unfortunately, the mod seems to be broken by the February 22nd patch? I think the life span increase is working as it should, but there are some weird graphic glitches:

Default Found a bug
So I've just realized that humans that live in the same household as vampires do not age, and have no clue how to fix it
If you have time, I'd appreciate your taking a look!

I'm having the same problem. As much as I LOVE the idea of this mod, considering how much I've been looking for something like it, I was unhappy with the fact that I discovered it RIGHT AFTER it was broken by the February 22nd patch. If you ever fix it, I'll be happily waiting to download it again! :D

Just wanted to drop this picture since I haven't seen anybody post about this yet! I have the Parenthood pack but I can't see the character traits for my kids. Their values still go up and down like normal, I just can't see it. I haven't actually used this mod yet, (meaning I haven't had any vampire children to check their aging) I downloaded it with a whopping 400 others in one day, popped em all in, played for a while only to realize one of them was messing up the character traits and I had to track down the broken CC. I had a feeling it was one of the vampire mods I'd downloaded so it didn't take me too long to figure out it was this one, but truly this seems like a great mod for vampire families so I'll be keeping an eye out in case of any updates! <3 I was using the x2 x4 flavor by the way.

FYI, this mod needs to be updated asap! It seems to cause playable vampires to become stuck which they were fine after removal.

I check back just about daily hoping for an update for Get Famous.

I was also a bit disappointed by this mod getting broken by Get Famous and I got tired of playing without it so I decided to take a crack at getting it working. I've attached an updated copy of the x2 version (that's the one I use) that's working for me with Get Famous. 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.
