[NEEDS SAVES] Plants look dead while being in season and functional

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Nederlands
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.77.131.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Grow a plant?
What happens when the bug occurs? The plants are functional but look out of season ( dead)
What do you expect to see? It fixed. Plants should look vibrant and not dead while in season!
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

So since the new expansion pack cotton living I experience that all my plants look dead. Although they are functional due to the right season... they do not display as such. The new plants that come with cottage living do not have this problem. They all look healthy and in season.

@LeCheffre Can't really tell from your pic, is there green smoke or is it just the lighting being off ?

@crinrict No there is no green smoke as in rotten. The plants just look like they are out of season. Not giving the vibrant green lush season color when in season.

@LeCheffre There's an older thread here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/TO-TEST-S-Plants-in-season-during-fall-winter-are-withered-in/... that was specific to in season plants during fall/winter though

What season is it in your game ?

@crinrict Okay so. It is spring day 9 out of 14. I did a test on a new household so I could speed the days up. at literally the last day of spring before entering summert. be it a week or 2 week cycle, the carrot plant shows its lush vibrant color like it should be. So does the rest of the neightborhood. LAST DAY of spring. That is ridiculous. Because one day after they go instant ugly again because it comes out of season!

Installed Cottage living, now plants appear wilted and brown when they sprout. Cannot select water. Only option allowed is Uproot plant until it is ready to harvest. Get one harvest, maybe two, then it emits green vapors and only option is to dispose of dead plant. Removed all cheats. Same results. Unchecked allow cheats/scripts, Same results. REMOVED cheats/Mods folder removed, same results. Repaired game, same results. Uninstalled game entirely. Deleted all game folders Associated with Sims 4, Reinstalled entire collection, Same results. Plant a seed, plant comes up brown and wilted, can only water it at the initial planting. Turned off seasons, rain, snow, seasons, snowy retreat, Cheat free, Mod free. Game appears to have some sort of Blight on ALL plants, 100 percent except for mushrooms and garlic, mushrooms and garlic grow and are harvestable. Flowers-Dead, Vegetables-Dead, Fruit-Dead, Herbs-dead, Trees-dead. Plants have three phases. Seed, Dying and Dead. Starting to think that the game has a "Global Warming" virus to teach us how the end of true civilization is going to occur, or welcome to the Idiocracy. No fresh Water left-only Brawndo, it has Electrolytes, it's what plants crave. Sims 4 Dust Bowl. so much for the long awaited farming communities in Sims 4, now the death of the series for me. The game is no longer worth playing with this bug.

Solution. I did my own trouble shoot on this since every time someone listed this problem the result was 50 more questions to avoid answering it. 

Attempt one. Removed all mods, failed.

Attempt two. Removed all mods, repaired game, failed

Attempt three. Removed all mods, uninstalled entire game, reinstalled with no mods, failed

Attempt four and five. Repeated Attempt three twice in case I didn't remove something, Uninstalled, deleted all folders associated with Sims 4, failed

Attempt Six. Uninstalled entire game, uninstalled ORIGIN entirely, deleted all ORIGIN folders and files, searched computer for virus/corrupt files (None Found) Checked update of

                     Windows 10, complete update already. Reinstalled ORIGIN. Installed Sims 4 ONE PIECE at a time. I had to fight ORIGIN to control what got downloaded and installed first, who                       ever heard of installing dust kit and 17 other packs before installing the main game feature? Installed SIMS 4 FIRST then the rest, tested plant growth each and every time,                               sixteen hours later Complete success, Sims 4 is running like normal, Plant growth is normal. AHEM, ORIGIN REINSTALLED seems to have fixed it, currently reloading Mods,                           so far, no problems. 

 

I had uninstalled the game 3 separate times, making sure to remove all folders and files to no success. I uninstalled Origin and reinstalled Origin and then the game, one piece at a time, and haven't had a problem since.  Oh Yeah, I listed platform and computer specs, I forgot to list the answer you have asked every single person with the problem, I figure you should have caught it however. ENGLISH I am running it in ENGLISH. American ENGLISH. And my retractable cupholder still works.
