[NOT BUG] Cured vampire sims won't age

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

So I got bored of my sim being a vampire and I decided to change him back to a normal sim so he could grow old. Once cured however his age is suck on 'Days till age up 1' but the bar is empty. He can't be aged up using a cake, the option isn't there. I've tried moving the family in and out of the lot, and that still didn't work. Lastly I tried testing cheats, cas.fulledit and aged him up that way hoping it would kickstart the process, but that didn't work either and I definitely have auto-aging on for everyone. Any ideas?

Hi @nessy_v_hill

 

Since Vlad is a bit of a special Sim, he has a special trait that keeps him from aging.

 

It's called trait_IntroToVampire_Caller (+ Disable aging)

 

I'm not sure if the disable aging part is part of the trait name or not. Basically what you would need to do is remove that trait but I have no idea what it would do to the game so I would use that with caution.

 

Could you try any other Sim to see if you have the same issue ? I believe this is not a bug and simply connected to Vlad.

No matter what family name I give it, I just get the response 'The family name should contain at least 1 character and at most 25 characters' and I can save it to my library, but not upload it Frown

Re: Cured vampire sims won't age

★★ Guide

This glitch sounds a lot like the 'age glitch' I've experienced in my own game, where the sim (always originally an npc) won't age and can't die. It says in the age bar it has '4 days' before aging up but the bar isn't filled. Although I don't have vampires in my game currently, the timing of this vamp. glitch and the age glitch seems to match up as well. So far, my only true workaround has been to figure out with a mod which npc sim isn't aging and delete them from the manage households menu (pain in the booty but works). Only sad problem is a couple of them are now 'played' (because I was testing the glitch) and are attached to my played sims, relationship-wise, so trying to contain an incorporate those into a story-line of some sort. :D
