@canelacaliente Do they change back when you choose too ?

This has always been an issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-S-Sims-change-into-cold-weather-clothes-inside/td-... although the moodlet thing sounds new.

Do they change into it after taking a shower or getting up as well or only when coming in from outside ?

If I have them change back to normal, they will.

They change after taking a shower.

 

They do not receive any Moodlets from the thermostat, positive or negative.

@canelacaliente What I meant is (first question), if you choose normal, will they auto-change back to outdoor after a while or only after shower/sleeping

@crinrict If I turn the thermostat off they will wear their outdoor clothing inside the house if it is hot or cold.

I'm having this issue too. For me, they don't just continue to wear outwear, they are actively showing the "chilled" moodlet while in a room with a running thermostat in the winter. It seems to come and go, as occasionally they will show moodlets acknowledging that the heat is on, and other times they won't. Kids seem to be most affected by it as well.

@sundanceatebecca Is this inside only or also outside ? Do you have a thermostat in the house ? Does it also happen in summer ?
