[NEEDS SAVES] [S] NPC Sims Freezing To Death

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

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 is your current game version number? 1.84.171.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Expansion Packs: Cats and Dogs City Living Cottage Living Discover University Eco Lifestyle Get Famous Get to Work Get Together Island Living Seasons Snowy Escape Game Packs: Dine Out Jungle Adventure Outdoor Retreat Parenthood Realm of Magic Spa Day Journey to Batuu StrangerVille Vampires Stuff Packs: Backyard Stuff Bowling Night Stuff Cool Kitchen Stuff Fitness Stuff Kids Room Stuff Laundry Day Stuff Luxury Party Stuff Moschino Stuff Pack Movie Hangout Stuff My First Pet Stuff Nifty Knitting Stuff Pack Paranormal Stuff Pack Perfect Patio Stuff Romantic Garden Stuff Spooky Stuff Tiny Living Toddler Stuff Vintage Glamour Stuff No Kits
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1-Have lots of NPC sims in your game 2-Have many households created by you in your game (sometimes it is one of them who dies) 3-Play a household in winter time in a neighborhood where it snows. 4-Eventually your game will be halted and the camera will direct the vision to a NPC freezing to death.
What happens when the bug occurs? Every winter NPC sims freeze to death, apparently because they choose to go jogging in proper jogging clothes when it is snowing. (The attached pic shows the SECOND NPC sim dying that same sim day)
What do you expect to see? All NPC sims should wear proper clothes to the weather when they go outside. If they decide to go jogging in winter they should do it wearing winter clothes.
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? Neutral/Not Sure

I've noticed the same thing here and no mods to correct it. NPCs will come to the gym during a blizzard and "dun dun dun" freeze to death. I should take a picture of the 6 urns that decorate the gym now because someone freezes to death every winter at the gym.

My sim lives on  Henford and every winter, NPCs decide to go swimming on the river and freeze due to that.

I've been having this issue for years, I think ever since I installed seasons in 2019-ish. Didn't even realize it was a bug. I have mods now but the issue long predated the use of any mods or cc in my game
