As to your question about Sims 2, yes, I played it obsessively, but it's been so long I barely remember anything I did. Only the current household aged there. There are pros and cons to all that, but I like to rotate households, so I think Sims 2 influenced my decision to play with aging off in Sims 3.

It is just after 11:30 Eastern US Time and I'm surprised that the majority play with aging turned off. I've never done that. For those who do, do you age any sims via birthday cakes or cheats? If so do you just age up those in your active household or the whole town? Also for those who turn aging off, did you ever play SIMS 2? I'm having a hard time figuring out how this works in a game.

That was what I was wondering - if players who played Sims 2 were more likely to turn aging off than those who started with Sims 3, like I did.

I customize the lengths of each lifestage:
Pregnancies -30 days
Babies -60 days
Toddlers -120 days
Children -360 days
Teens -180 days
Young Adults -540 days
Adults -ap1080 days(it can vary according to the time period)
Elders -ap 540 days.
I editied these in notepad outside of the game to get those numbers and pregnancies were edited in NRaas Retuner to last 720 hours.

The normal setting always seemed too short for me. My life stages are adjusted to mimic real life to some extent, along with the seasons and lunar cycle to give my game a more realistic sort of feel. Babies last for 3 days, toddlers for 12, children for 30, teenagers for 28, young adults for 60, adults for 90, and elders for 72 days I believe. The lunar cycle also lasts 6 days and a full year is 96 days, each season being 24 days. The pets' life stages were adjusted as well. Cats last 8 days for their kitten stage, 32 days for their adult age, and 20 days for elder. Dogs are 4/32/12 days and horses are 20/56/44 days. I haven't got to play with these new changes yet though so they may not even stick.
