I don't know if it counts as "joggers" freezing to death but I just played a game where it was fall but the temperature was freezing. Several neighborhood townies dropped dead in a span of minutes because they were outside playing with leaves or walking around. All of the people who died were wearing everyday or athletic clothing for some reason even though I couldn't really see that they had been exercising. I ended up disabling temperature reactions in my game for now, but I'm hoping it gets fixed soon.

Yep, just had a Sim die due to this the other day. One of my favorite ones, at that. Would be nice if they changed into warm clothing by themselves. If you interact with them at all while they're out on their jog, they'll stop jogging and this will happen.

Related, but I had one of my sims die at the gym because he was in sportswear and wouldn't go inside, but I thought it was hilarious so I let it happen.
Then another townie in sportswear sat there crying at his tombstone for like 3 hours and ALSO froze to death.
They should definitely have had winter clothes on, but also it was really funny tbh

Mods, what further input does the team need to begin addressing this bug? I'm constantly concerned during the "winter" days that my sims will freeze to death. A lot of them go jogging when it's freezing outside, and when I see them jog past my active household I save the game in case they drop dead in another 5 steps. Shouldn't there be a function where if the sim stops exercizing they automatically change into their cold weather gear?

I'm playing a household in Willow Creek with Winter that lasts one week, and I've had 6 sims die from freezing to death because they stop jogging but won't get out of their athletic gear.

(All of the dead sims were male and premade sims, but that might be coincidence)

I have seen this issue as well, but I also see it when I go to the gym in the winter. All the NPCs and some of my other played households show up dressed in their athletic clothing. Promptly, they freeze to death because they won't go into the gym. It kills both NPCs and previously played households (of which are approx five households totaling 12-ish sim). I then end up with several tombstones sitting outside the gym because everyone stops to watch/cry the dying sim.

 

As a result, I have had to stop visiting the gym lots in the winter. This happens at all gym lots from each expansion pack (all).

This issue can also be caused by having an outdoor basketball kit. Sims will play basketball, but won't change back into their winter clothing causing them to freeze to death.
