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

Re: [OPEN] [S] Can't plant most plants - too cold

★★★★ Newbie

I play on Xbox and have this issue in a new save. I have no mods or CC of course and haven’t used cheats before. 

 

I followed the link link about sharing save files and for Xbox is says how to capture a video or screenshot. Would this actually be helpful in resolving this issue? 

 

I am using a green house in winter and so far everything is thriving but I’m not allowed to plan onions because of the “tool cold” error.

Hi @Spoiled_Royal4

 

could you please create a new thread for console ? Console and PC are currently not in-sync patches-wise so it's better to have a thread each to better keep track what's solved.

 

Thank you.

Happy Gaming

I, also, am having this issue. My work around is to move the plant inside in a planter and then I able to plant it and then just move it back outside. I do only try to plant them in season, but it still says its too cold. I am using MC command center and some CC.

Hi everyone!

 

We have not been able to reproduce this even with the save previously provided. 

 

Could any of you send us a save game where you are experiencing this issue?

I just had this happen with a carrot and onion (both I got from a gnome that dropped them during Thanksgiving).  I built a greenhouse addition onto the Vatore house and had my teenager start planting.  He planted everything else except those two things due to it being too cold (in the greenhouse?).  While I do have mods, they are cosmetic and don't interfere with gameplay (and haven't since they were made a couple of years ago).

(I sincerely hope I got the Sharing permissions right.  I *think* I did.)

Has anyone tried going into Build Mode, moving the plants into a Sheltered location, then back out? I've been noticing the new Gardening System has been rather finicky with how it detects the environments its in, especially if I'm playing an Apartment lot. Try this:

 

1: Enter Build Mode.

2: Drag the plant, along with its container (If it has one) into a sheltered location. (One that has a roof over it.)

3: Exit Build Mode (See if the plant Re-Initializes; essentially showing as if it was just planted again.) (If it does, proceed to Step 4.)

4: Enter Build Mode.

5: Move the plant, along with its container (if it has one) into an outdoor location. (One that does NOT have a roof over it.)

6: Exit Build Mode (See if the plant Re-Initializes, as per Step 3.)

 

I'm curious if this might also be related to the issue where you can't water plants on career lots (Such as the Scientist Career.)

 

As a workaround, if you have Seasons, I would recommend placing some plants around a Sprinkler to keep them alive for the time being. I've found that works for the interim (Plus it let me build a cozy little garden at FutureSim Labs!)

Hello, I've just come across this issue in my game. I've had issues with the thermostats only working sometimes but not all the time. I.e my sims will put on their cold outfits and the toddlers have the sad emotion due to being cold. I just tried to start planting things inside and some stuff would plant but others wouldn't saying it's too cold. I have never used custom content and in this particular save file I haven't used cheats.
