Purchased Horse Ranch & starting today animals are aging up and dying despite having animal aging turned off in the game options. I never experienced this previously and read this bug was supposedly resolved in the latest update. I have tried repairing my game, toggling the aging on/off, but it continues to age them. This is affecting all animals, cats, dogs, horses, chickens, cows, etc.

Cats, dogs, and horses will age or not according to the main aging/lifespan settings for your human sims, as they are part of households. The animal aging checkbox should only affect cows, llamas, and chickens…and now probably sheep and goats.

 

With animal aging unchecked, you’re still getting cows, llamas, or chickens auto aging/dying of old age? When did your sim purchase them, before or after the patch?

I have aging off set on everything, my sims aren't aging but their household pets & livestock are. Livestock were purchased after the patch.

@NotDafina They moved the aging animals check box to the gameplay section after the lastest patch. Is that unchecked?

@msomers1115 Yes. Aging is unchecked.

@NotDafina Definitely a bug then. When the patch updated for me I repaired my game and had to recheck everything. I was hoping that might have been what happened for you too.

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? I have some packs that I have not all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? by hovering over mini sheep and goats to check their aging same with chickens.
What happens when the bug occurs? They age up even though it is off and the grim reaper doesn't come rabbits are unaffected, chickens are affected too.
What do you expect to see? I expect to see the animals not die again and age up.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I tried restarting game and also turning on and off Animal aging in the settings nothing worked they still aged up.

Since Horse ranch came out my animals this is mini sheep and goats and chickens are aging up rabbits are somehow unaffected by this and don't die yet this setting is off in the settings. I have a mini sheep that ran away from home due to inadequate care when i did all of the care tasks for them.

 

I hope this gets fixed and I know people have the same issue.

 

I have turned on and off auto aging but this doesn't seem to work.

 

Thank you

Since the September update last week - all of my animals are aging and dying with the aging box unchecked. Dogs, horses, chickens, etc. This has never happened to me before - outside of rabbits before the "fix" which appears to be not working anymore.
