Sim don’t age/die anymore


My Sim doesn’t age anymore. The age bar is full but the Sim doesn’t age up.

When I try to age him with the birthday cake, I get a message that the Sim is not eligible for aging.

My Sim also doesn’t die. I tried all kinds of methods but he survives everything.


Immortal Sims usually have a certain hidden trait.

  • Meeting the Nanny makes Sims immortal
  • Sim is pregnant.
  • Certain pre-made Sims are immortal like Baby Ariel.
  • Sims with the Weirdo-Trait are immortal
  • Sims that repair stuff around San Myshuno are immortal
  • Sims that used to be Detective Career criminal


Do the following steps to use the cheat console

  1. Open the cheat console with ctl-shift-c
  2. Enter the cheat you need in the entry box which appeared in the upper left corner of your screen.
  3. Hit ENTER
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 for every necessary cheat.
  5. After entering all needed cheats, close the cheat console with ctl-shift-c

This trait can be remove via cheat which in turn lets the Sim age and die again. Don’t try this for pregnant Sims. Wait til the baby is born and the Sim will go back to aging.

Finding hidden traits (Mods needed)

Show/Search Sim Info Mod von Frankk can help you figure out which hidden trait is causing the issue of if there’s a different cause.


Click on the Sim and choose Show Sim InfoThis Sim. You will get an infobox. On the first page you will see if your Sim can age and die.

If it says Disable change to Hidden Traits and check which traits your Sim has. The box should contain info which trait is making your Sim immortal as well as the exact name so you can remove it with the cheat.
