pet stories was meant to be laptop friendly so i'm guessing by adding pets they had to remove something else

Well you could only speculate. According to wiki, there is officially "no known reason for this age not to be present in the game, since they exist in the other two Stories games."

So...do Sims just die at the end of the Adult stage? Creepy... Is it at least longer than in other games?

i might test it out later to see if sims die when adult stage is over

I sort of just assumed that since the Elder stage wasn't relevant to the actual stories they scrapped it, and that death by old age just... wasn't a thing. Free Play just wasn't worth the trouble.

Elders are actually in the game, but you have to use mod objects to age Sims up to that stage. They partially work. From memory, they'll age up and their voice is initially the correct "elder" voice, but when you have them talk to Sims and do anything else, their voice reverts back to the Adult one. on top of this, their face will disappear when you go to the mirror.

so in pet stories elders are just ultra glitchy

Yes

Alice Whitt and Stephen Loyal will stay Adult forever

Wow that's weird/stupid. I never had Pet or Life Stories, because I have always preferred desktop PCs to laptops so it was a non-issue. I did have Castaway Stories and was really disappointed in the inability to place lots in the free play mode after the story.

But really, it kinda sounds like the Stories games were a shape of things to come with Medieval and Sims 4 (how many features can we cut and still sell this?)

The wiki says they die of old age like an elder does.

I kinda detest Pet Stories. Because of it, The Sims 2 Pets didn't have a neighborhood. At least, Arbor Falls or any of them should've been included in The Sims 2 Pets.

All the hoods are merely the same, so I made ones where all the Sims aren't straight.

Removing the Elder stage was one of their more questionable decisions, but I remember the Stories games being really weird.

I think it was more likely that the series had goals as regards to game requirements and file sizes, and including textures for animal life states as well as all of the sim lifestates would have broken these goals.
