[NEEDS INPUT] Sim not affected by weather

[ 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 expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? The sims 4 Season, City Living, Get Together, Get to work, Jungle adventure, Parenthood, Vampires, Dine out, Spa day, outdoor retreat, Laundry day, toddler, Fitness, Bowling night, Vintage glamour, Romantic garden, movie hangout, cool kitchen, perfect patio, luxury party.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In winter, any weather and blizzard Put themorstat to cold, turn off every fireplace, wear summer clothes or sleepwear, stay inside for a day/stay outside for a day. In summer, any weather and heat wave Put thermostat to hot, turn on every fireplace, wear winter clothes, stay inside for a day/stay outside for a day.
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim won't get any weather related moodlets.
What do you expect to see? The sim to get a weather related moodlet.
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? No

So, my sim will not be cold or hot. Like, i turn off the thermostat and every fire place, I make the sim wear hot clothes and either inside or outside she will not have any sight of a cold related moodlet. Same thing with hot, winter clothes on, fireplaces on, no hot moodlets or anything. The sim doesnt have any trait from the sims 4 season like cold resistant and other things. Tried to repair the game, tried with and without mods. Nothing changed.

 Did you check your seasons settings if the option is set there ?

 

  

If it's set, try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

Update: I found out that the problem occurs only on one sim (the one i'm currently playing with). If I add more sims to that household, they will all have the moodlets and same thing if I change household, they will all feel cold and hot. I Tried resetting the sim many times, removing every trait, adding the seasons related traits and removing them but nothing helped. What do you think I could do before cloning it and deleting the old one?

As you don't seem opposed to mods, try getting one called SimsInfo (or something along these lines). You can check all the Sims hidden trait. Maybe something is affecting him. Would be good to know what he has.

i have the same thing. New games dont have the moodlet problems they feel every moodlet. But the old save games does not feel the hot or cold weather.

So, first of all she has been a doctor and had the trait reward which i removed (it was before season so i dont know). Searching through the infos with the mod i found:
In the commodities info:
1. commodity_Rain_Sim_Wetness
Value: -1.00 (0.00%) She wasnt wet but she doesnt get wet in the rain either.
2. buff_Temperature_SuppressTemperatureOutfitSwap
Value 69.02 (57.51%)
Then in buffs (she was outside):
1. buff_Temperature_Hidden_Neutral
2. buff_Temperature_DiscourageOutsideInteractions_Hidden
3. buff_Temperature_SuppressTemperatureOutfitSwap Fine (Always on and hidden by default) (MoodBuff_Hidden_FineDefault).
She also had the buffs for frozen breath VFX, frozen ground. And yet no hidden trait that would influence the feelings

okey at first my sims does not get effected by cold or hot weather like snow storm or heat wave. now I moved the bugged family from the old save file to a new working save file. (by saving the family to the gallery) in the new save file all the sims from the old save file are affected by the cold and heat. They get frozen and hot and react to it.

so the problem is in the old existing save files

Was the whole family vampire at one point ? I've seen a similar issue but I can't remember if it was here or officials atm. Might merge

 

How did you turn her back ? Cheat or by 'normal' means ?
