[NEEDS INPUT] [S] Can't plant most plants - too cold

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I tried planting the starter plants, and the plasma fruit.
What happens when the bug occurs? The only plants it allowed me to plant are the peas and peppers. If I try to plant anything else, it is always grayed out saying it is too cold, even when the weather says it is hot.
What do you expect to see? The option to plant the harvestable plants during at least one of the seasons, such as spring or summer, without issue.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Installed Sims 4 Seasons.

So, I just installed The Sims 4 Seasons, and now I can't plant most of the plants in the game. The only ones it has let me plant so far are the peas and peppers. Everything else is always grayed out, saying it is too cold, even on a hot day in the middle of summer.

Re: Can't plant most plants - always says too cold even when it is hot

I am not sure if this is an issue yet considering I haven't yet moved from winter but when I planted things I was able to plant fall/spring plants that came from the basic garden pack except for carrots and mushrooms which it said it was too cold to plant them. I also planted some other spring plants in a greenhouse but carrots/mushrooms I couldn't plant due to the cold. Will be interested to see if this is a bug or not as to why I couldn't plant them in a heated greenhouse (Thermostat)  But I also thought maybe it was the season as when I planted some of the others I had accidently caused a heatwave with the failing of the weather machine  in winter but that was also the time when I couldn't plant the carrots and Mushrooms.

So I am curious. I hadn't reported this yet as I wasn't sure if it was a bug.

Hi @Pyrosandstorm

 

have you tested this without mods at all ?

 

All issues reported must be tested on vanilla games.

Yes, the first thing I did was turn off the mods. I only use a few to begin with.

Plants have seasons now though. Some can't be planted during a certain seasons and they will revert to dirt if you already have them planted.

Did you check which are they're seasons ?

I'll do some testing myself though

It wasn't giving me information about seasons on all of them either. I tried planting them in Spring, Summer, and Autumn, and it just always kept saying it was too cold, even when it said it was hot out.

I'd been playing in Brindleton Bay, but I'm starting over with a new family in Forgotten Hollow. I'll see if I still have the same problem in a different town.

Could you test on a fresh user folder with a new save to see if you have the same issue ? Maybe something got corrupted by the mods on your current save.

Sure, I was going to start a new family anyway. I also completely removed the mods I had, not just turned them off, since I only had a couple little ones anyway.

Just for testing if it works on the new one. Don't delete the old save. If it works, would you be willing to share your old save with me ?

If so, please zip your saves folder and upload it somewhere like dropbox, mediafire, googledrive or OneDrive and PM me the link.
