I tested the game with no mods or cc in the mods folder and still find the same issue, though my sims YA/A/Teens change when told to do something that requires it (bathing/sleeping/etc) and they change into winter/outdoor gear when going outside, they fail to change into everyday/indoor gear when coming back inside. This is true for going to school or coming home from work also. I have included a save file (saved at a few different points).
Strange. I never received an email a month ago saying you responded to me. Sorry about that.
I don't use mods. Never have.
This is definitely still happening. It is rarely a problem for normal day to day activities, but parties of any sort or anything athletic is a problem. It is also ridiculous. In real life people only die from cold in extreme circumstances, such as living on the street during a particularly harsh winter, or power failures during a particularly harsh winter. When they are cold, they do not simply stay there until dead. They find shelter, go home, go inside.
Basically cannot have any winter parties.

Please describe the patch or change you made. The Realm of Magic release.
This happened on two different playthroughs after the Realm of Magic release, I sent my SIMs to the City Living festivals during winter and the Magnolia Park. One festival was on their own and another time my SIM was invited. Each winter visit, Sulani Natives arrived in their swimsuits and would not change into winter wear. Any SIMs who changed into athletic wear would not change into winter wear. The Sulani SIMs and any who changed out of winterwear would turn blue and there were a few deaths due to freezing. Funny thing, most of my deaths happened during the Spice Festival. I even tried to use Inferniate to warm a sim up. Father Winter did not like being set on fire. Yes, I almost lost Father Winter due to freezing to death during the Spice Festival. I didn't save the file as it was and went back to before going to the festival to keep the SIMs alive.

I also have this problem. It’s annoying because I always have to check the thermometer down in the panel, just to be sure that they wear the proper clothes.
I’ve also been thinking of how odd it is that when I make them wear the EXACT same outfit for everyday wear and for hot or cold weather they still get too warm or cold in their everyday wear. This is annoying because then I don’t know which outfit they’re wearing just by looking at them, and for some sims I really want them to have the same outfit for everyday wear (or whichever kind of wear) as for hot or cold weather. For example I have someone living on Sulani, and for me it makes sense that they wear the same outfit for everyday as for hot weather. Maybe that’s just me.
