Well, that is all I can think of for now, feel free to add your suggestions.
I love this!
I would add some notes about issues and/or fixes that must go in:
→ Names/info must not disappear from tombstones even if the sim is culled, if we have graveyards (and would you be able to raise that ghost?)
So maybe, no culling of any sims whose tombstones/urns are in the public graveyards?
→ Culling of ghosts will have to be addressed, too
→ Family tree bug will have to be fixed, so the wonderful info available won't be lost

I like a lot of your other ideas, but some I wouldn't want to see limited to one age stage, like the punk styles, I think certainly teens, and YA, Adults, and some things even for kids would be good, not just college-age; and I really like some of the things you include like the vandalism, and pranks, setting things things on fire, but I'd like to also see those things expanded for multiple ages as well.

This is a great thought-out list, thanks!

I love everything that has been said! Great list. I'd like to add a better memory system like they had in TS2 with the green for good memories or red for bad. Like some memories could be self explanatory. Like cheating is obviously bad (in my opinion) But may add a color like purple or orange or something and let it change colors so that could be something the Sim can decide without the game or player actively deciding

tribike for toddlers to ride inside/in the garden or at the park

boardgames that family play toghter... either on the floor or at a table... and be bought with you in the sim inventory.. or place on the lottable/floor just like the ball in sims3
Idk if anyone put this because I didn't read much but it's here if not. So in a resent poll there was a go to school ep and I think that would work well combined with this ep. Also add a jealousy system so if you break up with your boyfriend/girlfriend they knock of your trash can and hate you. Another thing that would be cool is to have it where pregnant sims aren't automatically thin again after birth. :) Hope I helped
Is marriage counselling and gossiping about the local scandals on there? :D

That is a great idea. And also I think a sim can get over a bad memory, like a sim gets cheated on and its a bad memory, but then they get another successful relationship and that memory goes from red, to a blue(to use your color system). I think it would improve emotions a little, make them more real.

I like these ideas, but hopefully there will be a non colored visual cue as well. I say that since more than half of my cousins who play the sims are colored blind.

More refined life stages:
This is how I think the stages before young adult should be
Stage 1: Baby (birth to 18 months)
Stage 2: Toddler (19 months to 2 years 11 months)
Stage 3: Preschool age (3-5 years)
Stage 4: Child (6-9)
Stage 5: Preteen (10-12)
Stage 6: Young teen (13-15)
Stage 7: Teen (16-19)
