Default Sims freezing in a Maxis house?!
Okay, i need your help.

I recently moved my sims into a Maxis created house, the Cape Cod Classic.
First time i notice this, my toddler was playing in the attic bedroom with her toys. Her temperature was low, so i gave her a bath. After that i didn't see it anymore, so i figured it was a bug.
Now her sister (teen) was painting a picture when i suddenly noticed she turned blue. She almost froze to death.

I've attached some pictures of the roof, but i can't see anything wrong with it.

Can anyone explain why my sims are freezing but no furniture snows over? It doesn't snow inside, it doesn't rain inside. They don't dress into outerwear when they enter the attick, but they do freeze...

EDIT: I tried replacing the roof, but that didn't solve it. I replaced the roof by dragging the long gabled roof across the whole upper floor (not sure if that info is needed).

It sounds like the attic aren't 100% enclosed by walls, however I've heard others complain about their attics not working after Seasons, so It could be a game glitch!
Have you tried to remove the Chimney to see if that corrects the problem?

Yup, doesn't help. I can't find any gaps. All walls show and cut away like they supposed to do.

Maybe it's for realism. IME attics are always too hot in Summer and too cold in Winter

there's some info and a plausible solution for that in this thread

Thanks Megativity13, I had just figured it out myself. I went to post the solution here, but since it's already in that thread, i won't have to.

Well it would make sense most attics have no installation thanx megativity for the pointer just incase mine's start to freeze!

When you jump on your way down why do you ask yourself why did you jump?
Sometimes the quote 'think before you leap' comes in handy at that point
If you happen to see me down there you'll know I wasn't following my advice
Then we all know what happens...SPLAT!

Besides, not always, probably just the common ones.
