Rain in a house

★★★★ Novice

Can a sim shelter from rain under a roof with no sides (or only 3 sides), or must they be in a room completely enclosed by walls? I'm thinking of building an island living house which is partly open to the elements, but I'm not sure if this will pose problems for my sims

@ArchAngel1294  Yes that will work quite nicely. Heart I have used this exploit successfully for my homeless (living on an empty lot) Sims especially since the Seasons EP was added.

You are totally right @EuphorialQueen for Island living and may be for one other world. There is however one small problem in other worlds @ArchAngel1294. In the winter time your sims might freeze to death when the don't have the right traits. But it can be nice playing with a Sim that has been frozen to death. Wink

@Trismagistos  You are correct about the weather effects still impacting the Sim. Sims will still freeze in cold weather and overheat when it is hot. 
I have experienced Sims nearly dying (one did) from freezing to death inside a house next to a lit fireplace.  Broken heart
A single wall with a thermostat should be helpful.  My habit is to turn off effects on Sims under Seasons options.
I can still have weather without Sims dying.

Thanks everyone! Yes I was imagining this in Sulani, where i think it doesn't get too cold.
