This global hack makes it rain more during Spring, increases temperatures during Summer, and decreases temperatures during Fall. It also contains my More Snow During Winter hack.

Please report any bugs or problems to me.

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

Download only ONE file. "MoreWinterSpringPrecep&SummerFallTemp" is the basic download and "MoreWinterSpringPrecep&SummerFallTemp&NoOtherSnow" disallows it to snow during any other season besides Winter. "MoreSpringPrecep&SummerFallTemp" is the basic download, without the Winter snow boost. "MoreWinterPrecep&SummerFallTemp" is the basic download, without the Spring rain boost. And "MoreSummerFallTemp" just adds the increased Summer and Fall temperatures.

Fixed some temperatures and made it rain less during Spring.

Additional Credits:
Thank you TaylorGuy for the idea and the request.
Thank you irisheagle for the no Winter snow boost request.
Thank you dunner1 and Spirit Fox for requesting the no Spring rain boost.

This is great! But I have to know... how much is the spring-rain increased? Tell me that less than that in your previous hack, because... My lot is now like a pond :D

Uhh... this hack includes my Spring Rain hack, too. So it's the same amount. I could fix that if you'd like...

EDIT: Fixed it!

This is a great hack, but there still seems to be a bit too much rain during the spring.

Could you reduce it again? Or, maybe you could create a version of this hack that has the hotter summers, cooler falls and more snow, but it doesn't change the rain settings for spring at all?

I agree with Dunner1. I like how Maxis sets the ran currently. I mean.. I don't want my sims to have a flood or anything. ( would be nice if there was the options of floods and, tornados and, hurricans. Stupid maxis for leavng that out. -_- ) so, maby just warmer summers/springs and, cooler falls would be awsome.

I really like this mod - having more snow in the winter was something I was missing. You did great job!

I have a question, however, is this mod compatible with Bon Voyage or needs to be updated? If yes, would you be updating it?

You know, Wez, that house is actually an apartment in Academie Le Tour college neighborhood. It's Maxis made, so if you have Uni, you already have it!

Quick question: do these modify winter, spring, summer, and fall, or do they modify season one, season two, season three, and season four?

(What's going on is I have a custom neighborhood with the weather sequence summer, fall, spring, summer [to represent mid-coastal California, where it doesn't rain much, and it's mostly concentrated in the winter when it does.] It's "spring"-- the third season in the rotation-- and no rain...)
