Aging is part of life itself and as obvious, it’s part of the Sims world as well. However, it’s always disappointing to watch your favorite sim getting old and eventually die from natural causes. But don’t panic, there’s a few things that can be done to slow and/or reverse aging in The Sims 4.
Note: All the tricks mentioned here are not cheats.
1. Potion of Youth
Drinking a potion of youth will reset your sim’s current age state. This means that all the days lived in a current age group will go back to zero. However, if your sim is already an elder, he/she cannot become an adult or young adult anymore. So, if you want your sim to remain really young, you need to drink this potion before reaching elderly. You can obtain this item thought the life time rewards store, it costs 1.500 points.
2. Timeline Freezer
For those who wish to be young and fresh forever, this is most likely the best option. You can freeze the aging timeline through the game options: Game Options > Gameplay > Auto Age > No. This mode will affect your ability to have children and it will also affect the natural growing process of existent children and teenagers, who will never reach the adult phase.
3. Augmented Lifespan
Extending sim’s lifespan will still preserve the natural aging aspect of the game. Instead of freezing time, as the last option, it will slow the process of aging, therefore extending your possible living days. To trigger this option you must do the following steps in game: Game Options > Gameplay > Sim Lifespan > Long.
This method only works for female sims at the adult stage. If you manage to get your sim pregnant a few days before reaching elderly, then she will remain as an adult until she gives birth. This method is risky and it can only delay the elderly stage for a few days, still it’s a viable way.
