Hello everyone,
I am pleased to anouced my latest extraction... WEATHER. Now your sims can have weather on their lot!


The weather I have created is an object that can be found under General/Misc.

The weather only works on lots.

Each form of weather is a seperate object.Which each costs $1. The forms of weather that I made availible in this post are:

Heavy Rain
Light Rain
Thunderstorms

Heavy Rain: Heavy rain just rains for a few hours. In the game Heavy Rain is a lot of rain drops on the screen.This object is preferribly placed near the middle of the lot. Once you buy the obejct and place it the rain will just have to do it's corse. You can't get rid of it till it is done it's corse.

Light Rain: Light Rain is just like heavy rain. It lasts only for a few hours. But unlike the Heavy Rain it only has a few raindrops. This object is preferribly placed near the middle of the lot. Once you buy the obejct and place it the rain will just have to do it's corse. You can't get rid of it till it is done it's corse.

Thunderstorm: ThunderStorms Last for up to 2 days. ThunderStorms look exactly like Heavy Rain but during the time period the storm takes place you might encounter a popup. This popup is a noticed that there is a power outage. This outage lastest for 7hrs. This object is preferribly placed near the middle of the lot. Once you buy the obejct and place it the rain will just have to do it's corse. You can't get rid of it till it is done it's corse.

Issue: The only issue with the weather is that the rain goes through the roof.

Final Notes: There was going to be lightning bolts but if you want a huge blue blob on your screen... I would wait till I've got the issue solved!

(In case you can't read the power outage message, it reads:
SimCity power company is experiencing problems in your service area, and we are happy to have your power back on in about 7hrs. In the meantime during the crisis, would you like to try to keep your family in a good mood?)

And this is my extraction so please do not reupload anywhere. And plz no exchange!

Well with Photoshop I can add rain to my stories; so thats no worry. But for movies it isnt even possible! Thank to you it is!! By the way you may want to change it from "Weather For Yours Sims" to just "Rain For Yours Sims" because weather is speaking in general.

And I think you can make snow. Yes it would take a while, but the animation texturing should make it happen. But it would be too hard to make it fall to the ground and make it look like it stays there because that would result in an unbelievably large count of poly's.

This is great! I love the way it makes little circles of water when it touches the gropund. Actually i think there is some sort of wheather in the game because once two of my sims died after being struck by thunder while sleeping outside.

Thanks! It's Great! Wish someone would make acid rain or, rain of the cowplants! Actually, I might try that...

If you were I, and I were you, my clothes probably wouldn't fit. And also, there is practically no chance of that ever happening, thank goodness.

Wow thanks. You are good. When it rains, does it leave puddles? Like how when the sink or toilet or bath tub is broke? And does it water the plants or makes weeds in the ground? Thanks though.

I really want a hamster. I like hamsters because they are pretty and sweet!

Looks great, thank you. I had weather in my game before, but that was before I lost everything on my hard drive. It is kind of neat to have weather in the game though - I wish Maxis would have just added it in originally.

I have been retired from Simming for years now. I actually can't believe my work is still up after about 8 years and being downloaded. Lots of memories from the game and this website; these creations are a snapshot of a time in my life. Please continue downloading and enjoy.

It's really just there to give the game a more real feel. Srry no puddles weeds or plants growing. But weeds do come by themseves.
