I find it just a tad
annoying that there isn't a "switch hemispheres" option in Seasons that switches NYE/Christmas/etc to the opposite seasons.
Instead, I had to switch them manually on top of adding relevant holidays. A bit
tedious but I won't complain too
Because it took a while to properly set them up, I thought I'd share my holiday setup for anybody wanting to skip some of the hassle.
You'll still have to make them yourself, but at least you won't have to figure out the days/attributes.
As you can see, my holidays follow the same kind of vague/nonspecific naming scheme as the EA's, you can name them whatever you want
is very obviously Australia Day
, which I added in purely so I could use the BBQ attribute.
I also added Halloween
and Bunny Day (Easter)
and took out that Thanksgiving Day one, since we don't have that here.
that some of them fall into the wrong season. It's better that way, as the alternative is having holidays almost back to back.
You can fit them all into the right seasons if you use the longer season times (14 days/28 days)
I just personally prefer 7 days, gameplay-wise.
Here are the attributes I used (I changed some of the EA ones too) but you can use whatever you feel like:
Have fun and HAPPY SIMMING!
