There's now a Discord server that features news, support, and discussions related to my mods. Join here!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Changelog: Bug fixes in 2.0.1, compatibility with the newest patch.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Weather Realism Overhaul changes the way the game handles weather events and forecasts to make weather more realistic. For a more complete experience, I strongly recommend Better Seasonal Changes. Features include:

Forecasts Aren’t Always Accurate:
In the unmodded game, a cloudy day will always be cloudy. With this mod, however, forecasts can be unpredictable, a day forecast to be sunny can instead have rain showers or a day forecast to be rainy can remain cloudy. As a result, all weather events can happen with every forecast.

Tweaked Weather Forecasts:
Along with the tweaked weather events, all forecasts' names have been changed, and new varieties added, to complement the new events, such as Warm Fog (June Gloom), Showers, more intensities of rain, etc.
All forecasts now display daytime temperature as well as weather event, so you can get an idea of what the temperature will be like in the forecast.

Visual Changes:
Cloud covers, weather transitions and how water puddles form have been changed.

Other Minor Changes:
Changes like lightning settings and forecast thresholds that are too minor and too many to write here, you can see the changelog for that.

Worlds' Weather Changed:
Weather for all worlds have been remade to match real-world locations, using this temperature scale.
Freezing - <0 C / <32 F
Cold - 0 - 10 C / 32 - 50 F
Cool - 10 - 20 C / 50 - 68 F
Warm - 20 - 30 C / 68 - 86 F
Hot - 30 - 35 C / 86 - 95 F
Heatwave - >35 C / >95 F

Conflicts:
The mod will conflict with any mod that changes weather events, forecasts, forecast lists for worlds, general weather tuning or lightning.

I no longer use any of its files, however, it's still here as it was my first inspiration for the mod.

You must have the expansion, game version or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Sims 4 Seasons
Built with Game Version: 1.81.72

This is a multi-part download:


IMPORTANT:
Only download ONE file, and make sure to read the descriptions of each before downloading.


After you download (or update) my mod and enable it in game, make sure that you reset the forecasts once.
You can reset the forecasts this way:
  1. Go to the Seasons section your game's options.
  2. Change the season length (for example, if you're playing with 14 day seasons, change it to 7 or 28).
  3. Apply settings without leaving the game settings page.
  4. Change the season length to your preferred length.
    If you don't do this, the mod may not work properly! The glitch where there is snow in Sulani is a result of this.

Unfortunately it seems heavy rain sound is still bugged . I tried without the mod and with the old 1.5 version and the sound is ok.

Well, that's because it isn't a bug, and as I said there's not much I can do about it. The sounds aren't mapped to events but the rain intensity itself. The change I made (necessary one I think) was to lower the heavy rain trigger intensity. This allows more variety inside the heavy rain event, but has that side effect. To be honest moderately heavy rain shouldn't sound like a downpour anyway, but if that's a game-breaker for you, you can edit it, and I can give you a tutorial on it on Discord or on here.

Oh no need to be sorry at all, in fact, I'm sorry if I came across a bit harsh. You are already on my Discord server, by the way.

There should still be monsoons in Sulani.
Heatwaves still occur, they just do not show up the same way. Check the temperatures near the forecasts, if they're above 35C / 95F it's a heatwave.
