Age Sims

Part of the fun in The Sims 4 on PC is starting a family and watching it grow. Sure, watching a child grow up can be fun, but changing diapers and dealing with their nonsense can get annoying. Lucky for you, The Sims 4 has a handy way to develop characters quickly. Here is How to Age Sims in The Sims 4 on PC.

In The Sims 4, there are two ways to help your child or adult grow into a new age. One option is official and built into the game’s core gameplay system, while the other option is a cheat. Let’s talk about how to officially age your Sim.

Here’s how to age Sims in The Sims 4 on PC

The Sims 4 has seven different life stages: baby, toddler, child, teen, young adult, adult, and elder, and you can manually age anyone into one of these life stages with a birthday cake or an in-game option.

Bake a birthday cake to grow up toddlers and other Sims

First off, you can age a Sim by making them bake a birthday cake. Have a Sim bake a cake by clicking on the oven, selecting cook and selecting cake. Once the cake is finished baking, you can “add birthday candles” to it with any adult Sim.

Then have the Sim you want to age blow out the candles. If it’s a toddler or younger Sim, they’ll need the help of an older Sim to do this. So select your adult Sims and choose the option to help them blow out the candles. This will turn your Sim from a toddler to a kid, or from a kid to a teen.

Baking a birthday cake is the easiest way to age toddlers in The Sims 4, but it also works for all your Sims, regardless of their life stage.

Throw a birthday party

If you want to go all out, you can throw a birthday party for one of your Sims. To do this, you need to go to your phone and select the “Schedule a Social Event” option.

From there, select “Birthday Party” and select the Sims it’s a birthday for, then select the Sims you want to invite. You then need to achieve goals like telling jokes, making a group dinner, eating cake, playing a game with the birthday sim, and going out for drinks.

Not all of these “goals” will appear at every party, and you may have others, but any Sim invited to the party can help fulfill them.

The most important thing about beautifying Sims by throwing a birthday party is making sure you have a birthday cake. Because what kind of birthday party is it if there’s no cake? A bad one, that’s it.

Allow Sims to age naturally

If you want to ignore the birthday options, you can just wait for them to grow up off-screen.

The amount of time a Sim needs in each life stage depends on the stage and the “Life Span” you select in the game settings. We’ve given you the number of days below that a Sim spent in each stage on the Normal lifespan setting.

stage of life Time spent in the life stage (days)
infant 0-3
small child 7
child 13
teenager 14
young adult 24
adult 24
older 10+

How to age babies

There’s not much you can do when a Sim is a baby because…well, they are a baby. Luckily, you can get her out of this phase by clicking on her crib and selecting the “age” option. So you can get out of this phase of life relatively quickly.

Sims 4 Age Up cheat

In order to age Sims with cheats, you must first open the cheat console by pressing Ctrl (CTRL) + Shift + C.

Once this menu is open, type “testingcheatstrue” and then “cas.fulleditmode”.

After that, Shift-click on the Sim you want to age and select “Change to CAS”. Here you will see that you can enter any in-game age that you want and the transition will happen immediately after that.
