This is happening to me too.

 

I patched my game without any mods, deleted caches, updated mods and then tried a new save file without any mods. The issue still persists.

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? try to sunbathe at any time
What happens when the bug occurs? no matter the weather conditions or time it always says it is either too dark or too cloudy to sunbathe, even when it's not.
What do you expect to see? Being able to sunbathe as long as the sun is visible.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.

I installed Island living, and no matter the weather conditions, it always says that its too dark or too cloudy for it to work. This even happens on a sunny day in the game. I don't know what I should do to fix this.

★★ Guide

If you have a weather mod, it'll break the sunbathing. I had to remove mine before sunbathing would work. CC skin textures will break it also.

@coz626 Merged your post although you say you never have the option and the others say they have it between 8 am and 10 am.

Questions for everyone

1. Did you do a complete folder rename and tested on a fresh save ?
2. What kind of lifestate do your Sims have ? Vampires ? Mermaids ? Human ?
3. What world is that happening in ?

I've narrowed down the problem on my side. It seems sunbathing stops working when MCCC is active. When I remove that, sims can sunbathe again. And yes, MCCC is updated.

 

Just for anyone else wondering, it might be because of that.
