Are you getting tired of taking care of your baby, toddler, or child in the Sims4? Maybe you want your teen Sims to get on with their lives and enroll at Foxbury Institute or the University of Britechester? Because in the game, you can apply for university scholarships but you can’t apply to uni until you are at least a young adult.
If you want to know how to age up Sims, there are actually a ton of tips and tricks available. Here are a few with and without the use of cheats without having to download any mods:
Some players really want to play the Sims4 without having to type testing cheats. Know that it is possible to know how to age up Sims without having to cheat your way through it.
The first thing you need to do is to check your game settings. Click on the Options Menu, the three dots on the top-right corner, then click Game Options, and then Gameplay. Make sure the Auto Age setting is set to Yes, then choose Sim Lifespan and change to Short instead of Normal or Long.
This option is only available for babies. Click on the bassinet or the baby Sim and then choose “age up.”
You are going to need to raise some of your Sims skills to be able to attain the following items:
Ensure that your Sim has a level 1 cooking skill and a refrigerator, oven, and counter. You can then bake any cake (chocolate, white, or hamburger). Once the cake is baked, click on it and then add birthday candles. Make sure your Sim has clear access to the cake that is placed on a table or countertop.
Choose the Sim you want to age up and then click on either the “blow out candles” or “make a wish” options. For babies and toddlers, an older sim must be present so you can click on “ask for help to blow out candles.” At the same time, you can have the older sim choose “help blow out candles” and then pick the baby or toddler you want to age up.
The Scent of Death
Now, this is a bit trickier. Your Sim needs to have a level 9 flower arrangement skill as well as a level 5 gardening skill. The first thing you need to do is to acquire the Death Flower through grafting.
If you have the Sims 4 Realm of Magic game pack, the Death Flower is sometimes available in the alchemy stalls in the hidden neighborhood of The Magic Realm. So, you don’t need to improve your Sims’ gardening skill.
Using the Flower Arranging Table, make any flower arrangement and then click “scent with rare flower” then choose the Death Flower. Gifting this flower arrangement to any Sim will instantly age them to the next phase, for elders it’s death.
