What happens when the bug occurs? It’s winter time and the bushes stay green.
What do you expect to see? That the bushes change colour when the seasons change
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. The patch on September 3th

When I opened the game after I installed the latest patch update the bushes were and still are green in winter time (they weren’t yesterday the 3th of September before I updated the game). I expect them to change colours with the seasons like before.

@SabiDesbiens Could you add a pic ? Is this for plants you planted or all bushes ?

Do you currently have snow ?

@crinrict It’s winter right now and bushes and flowers that always changed colour before are still very green (like they haven’t change from summer to winter) but it doesn’t happen with the tree.

I'm also seeing this in my game after the Sept 3/20 game update.

 

Here are some shots from before the update (I got them from a video recorded before the update where it's still winter):

 

 

Here are some screenshots of from after the game update (same save, similar locations as the before shots, and it's still winter, but it's night time in both shots):

 

 

It's a bit hard to see, but in the after screenshots the hedge (from Island Living) has the flowers on it, which it doesn't in the before screenshot.  In the second screenshot, the shrubs and grass in the world are also more green in the after screenshot than the before screenshot.

 

 

My game version is PC: 1.66.139.1020, no mods/cc in my game, I have all the packs up to and including Nifty Knitting, and I repaired my game after the update.

 

Best regards,
Jennifer

I can confirm that I had some very green plants in the winter prior to the Sept 3, 2020 patch. This pic was taken before I installed the patch:

I can also confirm that there appears to be even more very green plants in the winter after the  Sept. 3 patch. Here is a pic I took in Newcrest prior to installing patch:

Here is a pic at the same lot, same in-game day, after installing the patch:

I'm also having this issue. I've also noticed sims washing in snow like it's raining and having thunderstorm moodlets in a blizzard.

Hi everyone!

I have the same issue with mostly bushes, (debug and non-debug), which doesn't want to change with seasons, not just on usable lots, but in the world, too.

I currently have Fall in my game, but the issue is the same with winter as well.

 

I have all EP, GP, SP installed.

Update 9/3/2020

PC: 1.66.139.1020

 

I first saw this bug a couple of days ago, before that it was just fine, all bushes were aligned with the current season.

All lots in all worlds are affected by it.

 

I removed all my CC (only CAS).

I removed the 2 MODs I use: T.O.O.L. Mod, More CAS Columns Mod.

I had the Red Shelf in my game, removed it as well.

 

I have reset all my user files as described in the factory reset.

I repaired the game via Origin.

I reinstalled the game completely and started a whole new game/save it without any older saves, tray items, CC or Mod.

Nothing helped to fix my game.

 

I did use the seasons.advance_seasons cheat once, but I don't think this has anything to do with it.

 

All help and suggestions are much appreciated!

 

Thank you.
