This is a global mod that changes the lifespan of your Sims.
The new lifespan lets you see how old your Sims are, compared to real life age, and fixes the disproportion between teens and adults. One day is one year.

A while ago I noticed this mod actually changed something for elders, as I edited another lifespan mod that I used to use and didn't realize elders were edited there. Now elders are set to default, exactly as the vanilla game provides - I changed it in every version!
What exactly was the problem:
The "bonus" values were a lot lower, which meant that if your Sim aged up to elder with red aspiration and stayed this way for a day - they would die of old age after that one day. Also, the age bar would progress a lot already in the elder stage (after birthday), based on aspiration. The vanilla game does that too, but it's not as visible. With the old version of this mod, if your Sim suddenly went from gold aspiration to red, the movement of their age bar would go a lot faster, getting them really close to death when you weren't expecting it.

With that said, I recommend redownloading the mod! It won't change anything in your existing lifespan, except the elder situation.

Here are the exact days and ages of your Sims. I recommend aging babies up 1 day earlier (right when the notification pops up) because you can't set this stage's span to less than 2 days. All the further ages will be shown considering you did age up the baby after 1 day.
Baby - 1 day (technically 2, as I said above; ends at 1 year old)
Toddler - 5 days (ends at 6 years old)
Child - 7 days (ends at 13 years old)
Teenager - 9 days (technically 10, but I give you one extra day to send them to college; ends at 22 years old)
Adult - 38 days (ends at 60 years old)
Elder - default (I didn't change anything, so your elders will live somewhere up to age 85)

In the basic version, Plantsims' lifespan has been changed to:
Toddler - 10 days
Adult - 38 days
Elder - default

Flavors for Plantsims!!!
In the Equal version, Plantsims' lifespan has been likened to the human one, so:
Toddler - 22 days (all the way up to human's adulthood)
Adult - 38 days (the same as the basic one)
Elder - default

The Default version leaves the original lifespan of Plantsims (toddler - 4, adult - 29).

Please note that this lifespan activates after the next birthday or in a newly created family (after you've installed the mod).

Although, you can use THIS MOD to calculate and adjust the lifespan of already existing Sims.

It's very possible the mod works with only the base game, BUT I recommend using it with the Ultimate Collection, as that's what it was created with!

The only known conflict for this mod would be another mod that changes the lifespan.
