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.
