This global hack increases the chance of having snowy weather during winter. The hack automatically makes it snow on lots without deep snow whenever there is no other weather going on during winter only. It also allows it to snow during winter no matter what the outside temperature is. You'll still have a chance to experience clear skies, hail, and maybe even rain.

So far, I have experienced snow within the first 12 hours of winter. I have also experienced my first winter without any snow melting. But you might lose a day of spring because it takes a while for the snow to melt.

This Hack Only Increases The Amount of Snow During Winter. If It Snows Any Other Season, This Hack Is NOT Responsible.

Please report any bugs caused by this hack to me. This is a global hack. There are no objects you have to place on a lot, or anything like that. It starts working as soon as you put it in the game.

This hack works with any EP or SP. It should works with all other hacks, EXCEPT all of my other weather changing hacks, which you can see in my user profile.

Downloads
There are two downloads to choose from. YOU CAN ONLY HAVE ONE IN YOUR GAME!!! "MoreWinterSnow" is the basic download, "MoreWinterSnowNoOtherSnow" has all of the same features, but disables it to snow in other seasons. "MoreWinterSnowNoOtherSnow" is in need of testers, so please give me reports on it if you download it. Thank you.

Haven't tested it out yet, but I look foward to more snow during the winter for my sims. I have had times when I haven't had any snow all winter and my sister just told me of a sim who wanted a snowball fight all winter, but there never was enough snow. Looks awesome. Can't wait.

Great idea; snow is the whole point of winter in the Sims! Nice work.

Cool! However, even without this hack I seem to suffer from too much snow. I'm halfway through spring and it's still snowing

Really? I'm wondering if that's just by chance because I didn't mess around with spring at all. Thanks for the comment!

Like I said before, it's all chance if it snows during other seasons. If people would like, I can make another hack that disallows it to snow during all seasons but winter... I don't know. I'll see how bad things get.

Both work fine in my game (when done seperately). I especially love how you won't have snow in fall or in spring - it doesn't seem right. I definatly reccomend this, and please, please, please, keep this download up. My sim kids are having more snow days than EVER! :D

I just wanted to up date my earlier statement, since I have no had the hack in for a while. It is awesome! I have gotten some snow at the end of fall and the beginning of spring, which is fine with me. I haven't actually lost any days of seasons. My sister has gotten several snow days, though I haven't got any, which is okay, because sometimes they can drive you batty over a weekend. Only ever caused me trouble, when a family was really low on money and had four starving cats, the kids off at school, and I couldn't go fishing or dig for treasure, but that has nothing to do with this, so basically, all praise.

Moved game to a different computer and this is one of the hacks I just have to have. Thought I'd say thank you once more. Love this hack.
