Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? Deutsch
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Place community pools in your worlds (I tested pools in Willow Creek and Brindleton Bay) and send your played Sim to the lot during the four different seasons.
What happens when the bug occurs? While everything is ok in spring and summer, the townies' behavior changes in autumn and winter. In autumn nobody will swim autonomously. Instead Sims use the hot tub or sit on benches or on the edges of the pool. In winter no townie will visit the lot at all. Your played Sims stays alone the whole day. This happens also in indoor pools with thermostat heating.
What do you expect to see? I expect townies to swim in all seasons at least in indoor pools.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Since Seasons
This may very well be a design choice to avoid mass freezings in outdoor pools. However it is a pity that indoor pools don't get used in the cold seasons because winter indoor swimming would be a nice and logical hobby. Perhaps this can be fixed.
