Seasons, Island Living, and terrible snow storms in Sulani

I'm pretty new to TS4. I have most of the "big" mods that most people have, as well as a few of the different packs, including Seasons & Island Living. TS4 comes nowhere near being as flexible as TS3 in seasonal issues. It's New Year's Eve and Sulani is BURIED under a very thick blanket of snow. I don't like that. A tropical island so....no. I don't even understand WHY it snows there. I don't know how to make it stop without going in and fiddling with the seasons tab every time I want to change worlds. (I jump around alot because each neighborhood is very poorly limited with activities and such.) I can't click on the ground to stop the snow (TS3), and it seems like any changes I make with the tab changes other neighborhoods, too. Without using the machine that changes weather AFTER having to get really high handiness (I believe), is there any way to fix it so that Sulani doesn't get snow, or cold? I don't want to have to keep going into the Seasons tab every time I change neighborhoods!

    I have never ever had snow in Sulani. Didn't even think that that was possible.

    Me neither. Sounds mod related.

    Sounds like you're having a mod issue, it can't snow in Sulani.

    Well, I've Google'd it and there are other posts out there pertaining to snow in Sulani. They're over a year old and no one had any answers so I thought to start a new discussion.

    Mods related? When I use MCCC, which most people do? I have a few from LittleMsSam (pretty much Pet and School mods), Kawaii's SOL, Sacrificial's Passionate Romance and Scarlet's Homework and Walk Style mods. I can't imagine any of those affecting weather.

    I don't know if it makes a difference but I installed Island Living before Seasons.

    I don't use any of those but MCCC, but I've had Island Living and Seasons since the day they both came out and have never seen snow in Sulani.

    I had no idea it could snow in Sulani. I’ve never seen it in my game and I use a bunch of mods.

    What I would like is to make it so that it rains less. It seems like it’s always raining and storming and it gets annoying after a while in those worlds. I would like to be able to customize the weather more easily and set it once for the entire world.

    Sounds like a mod.

    Since Sulani has come out all my sims live there, I've played over 1000 hours in Sulani, gone through many winters there, never seen so much as a snowflake

    According to google it CAN snow there if a Sim has a weather machine. Do you have any sim that has one and MCCC is allowing it to be used autonomously (or maybe they do anyways? I've never used one)

    Might be one of those bugs that don’t effect everyone. Maybe just to narrow things down remove the mods temporarily and do a play test to see if you still experience the issue?

    I've never seen snow in Sulani either but don't use mods or cc. I quickly checked The Sims Fandom site and found this section on climate:

    "If The Sims 4: Seasons is installed, Sulani will have slightly different weather compared to most worlds. Namely, all weather types are higher in temperature, with winter only going as low as cool. There is a new weather type only found in Sulani called "monsoons". Monsoons are extreme thunderstorms that are stronger than normal thunderstorms in other worlds but happen for a shorter period of time. Monsoons only occur randomly during late summer to late fall.

    Snow is also not present in Sulani, but Sims can use the weather-controlling machine to temporarily make snow appear."

    I don't remember ever hearing about "monsoons" occurring in Sulani, so I learned something, lol. Unfortunately, though, the snow does sound like it has to be mod related. I know MCCC is a huge mod so if that's the cause, perhaps a simple setting change will solve the issue for you. Of course, all you can do is pull them and try to track down the culprit.

    I had that one time without using mod, snows were falling in Sulani and Oasis Spring but they never stick to the ground thankfully.
    When can we get personality system for TS4?

    The only way it can snow in Sulani without a weather machine is when it's mysterious weather. But then the snow shouldn't stick.
    But since you use MCCC, you can use the cheats module on the mailbox to change the weather. Maybe that's how you got it to snow? You can set the desired weather and the amount of time that weather lasts. I haven't tested it extensively, but I do suspect that that weather carries over to all worlds. But you can also use it to turn the weather back to sunny cool, or warm if you prefer.

    The only way I got snow in Sulani was by using the climatio custom spell. It should also be possible with the weather machine.

    Must be to do with some sort of mod. I've always wanted to have snow in Sulani but it's never come
    Thank you for over 1k downloads on my more realistic Sulani mod on MTS!

    The Island never ever gets snow. You might have to turn off your mods.

    I have never experienced snow in Sulani and it's one of may favorite worlds to play in. I do use loads of mods as well so I am not sure if that would be the issue unless you have very conflicting mods. If you use the MCC mod you can change the weather on any lot by placing a mailbox on the lot and clicking on that.. you could give that a try I use that method all the time because I like to play on open air lots and parks in the summer :)

    I haven't had snow in Sulani. I usually play 28 day seasons and use no mods. It does rain a lot and get cool in the winter, my Sim can get the 'chilled' moodlet. But, I've not seen snow yet.
