Hey, so in the options, I noticed under the Game Option tab, theres an option that lets you adjust how long your sims live. However, its greyed out so I can't change it. What do I have to do to be able to change it?

Turn aging back on?

.... Just a guess. My aging is on and my option is not greyed out.
Unless otherwise stated, the above message is purely opinion. Arguing about it is pointless.

slide the bar under the lifespan title right to change it to a max. of 960 sims' days (epic) or as short as 50 days i think

Nvm, I solved the problem. Instead of pressing options in game, i pressed it in the main menu. In main menu, it doesnt let you change it. Ingame, it does. Thanks anyways.

Wait I have another question, If I turn aging off, and down the road, I want only 1 sim to age, can I buy a birthday cake? Do the cakes still work even though I turned aging off?

Cakes only work once with aging off. To make them work again you have to turn aging back on for a sim day.

you can also use "testingcheatsenabled true" and shift-click your sim, one option will be to trigger age transition, and thus age your sim.
