Default Vampires age like normal Sims
I was wondering if anyone had any resources or links to learn how to edit the aging XML files, as I want to make it so that my Sims of the Vampire variety age like normal. Is this possible, or just a pipe dream? There was a vampire aging mod but it hasn't been updated for the Nov. 7th patch, and I'd just figured I'd try and learn how to do it myself. Any help?

It's very easy, actually, there's only one tuning file involved in blocking vampires from aging.

I'm at work right now so I can't look up exactly which one it is, but I think it's in one of the Vampire Trait files. It's REALLY obvious in the code, it actually says <"disable_aging"=true>, and then below it has a list of age categories that are exceptions and should still age. Just add all the age categories to the exception list and bam, you're good to go.

Instead of adding all the age categories, just drop the data block. It defaults to "disabled".
The counter on the sim info panel is handled separately in one of the GFX files, so you'll need to modify that to restore the "days until age up" and the next-age picture.

MCCC also has an option to enable vampire aging, so that they have the exact same lifespan as your human Sims.

Last time I checked, MCCC changes the tuning files. My mod just adds a multiplier for vampire age lengths.
I.E. the two mods should stack.
