I think so too. Honestly, at different times I thought I wouldn't mind another age group between each of the already existing ones. Preschoolers, pre-teens, but middle aged sims especially. I think gradual aging would be awesome, but the franchise seems to be going the opposite way. When I heard that TS4 had fewer age groups and the teens and adults were the same height, I had to pass. That's the total opposite of what I want. If I weren't so lazy I would do more with cc content and teaching older toddlers to walk to make it so.
Now that you've got me thinking about the ages of parents of college students. The age duration for the different stages sometimes doesn't make a lot of sense either. Forcing them to age up, rather than waiting for them to do it on their own and sending the kids to university halfway through their teens helps somewhat. In the neighborhood I'm playing now, I'm just starting to send my oldest teens to uni (at 8 days to adulthood) and their parents (my founders) all have one day left of adulthood. (I didn't age them up early at any of their other stages). So I guess that would make them 40-ish elders. Ew, I don't like that thought . . .
I may have to break out the nonelder clothes and hair dye for them.
I've been using some mods and cheats to play my university students in a house in my regular neighborhood. I'm kind of enjoying doing it that way. It does eliminate all of the "rah rah" stuff you mentioned disliking. I'm also using a mod that makes the college experience last four 48 hour semesters. It makes it much more challenging. With the default time it's way too easy for everyone to get an A+.
Aw, how cute seeing SimToni and SimNonni sharing a meal together.
