Improved Weather Variety for Worlds.

11/1 Reduced the amount of blizzards in most worlds so that they are less likely to happen all the time (still pretty common in middle of winter especially in Granite Falls, WIndenburg, and San Myshuno). Also slightly increased the amount of chance of having snowy days rather than chance of snow in more cold worlds during all seasons of winter. Finally changed weather for selvadorada based on climate of jungles. Now selvadorada is most rainy during late summer and early and mid fall, and least likely to occur in winter. Thunderstorms are now only possible from late spring to late fall.

Seasons was a great expansion for the sims 4, and one feature that was very fun was the unique weather and temperatures for each world. EA did a pretty good job giving some worlds unique weather (like Windenburg), however they didn't go far enough, and unfortunately some places feel to samey with only slight changes. Another disappointment is that EA made thunderstorms almost exclusively in Summer, which is a shame because they are done well and could potentially work in other seasons.

Indilwen posted a great mod called Arctic and True Desert Weather. While her mod is awesome, and inspired me to make this mod here, the author of that mod made the same weather type for all seasons (i.e. either freezing and snowy all year long or hot and burning all year long). This mod aims to improve the weather of all seasons for all worlds except
New Crest by changing the type of weather and temperature than can occur in each season (early, mid, or late). It also alters the weight of all the various weather and temperature for each seasons so certain weathers are more likely to appear on some seasons, and other weathers won't appear at all.

This mod changes the weather and temperature for every world in the sims 4 to make it more distinct and unique.

Willow Creek Willow creek is near a swamp and like Louisiana, so the weather is hotter with little to no snow. In spring it gets hotter quickly and it stays slightly hotter in fall with chance of rainstorms early on.)

Oasis Spring Weather is hotter throughout. Chance of sunny and hot days in all seasons (except mid-winter) and temperature can reach burning in late spring and early-mid fall.

San Myshuno Weather is a mix between New York and San Fransisco. Very cold weather in late fall, winter, and early spring. Lots of cold and cool rain and potential thunderstorms in spring. Little rain in summer with no rain in mid-late summer

Windenburg Weather is generally colder with blizzards possible throughout early and late winter and some snow probable in early spring. Summer has less chance of burning weather and fall starts off warm and cool, but becomes cool and cold later on with wind.

Brindleton Bay Still rainy throughout with rain storms in spring and summer, but now more chance of cool or cold rain and windy days (except in summer). Less sunny days and more likely to have cloudy or partly cloudy days. Late fall and early spring have higher chance of possible snow, and are colder.

Forgotten Hollow Weather is significantly colder than before. Summer is warm or cool with possible hot days except mid summer where hot days are just as likely. Fall is equally cool and cold and gets colder with chance of snow in mid and late fall and lots of cold rainstorms. Winter is freezing, and snow is likely, but less blizzards and guaranteed snow than Windenburg, Brindleton bay, and similar worlds. Spring has small chance of snow, and has potential freezing weather up until mid spring and more cold thunderstorms. Gets mostly cool and warm by late spring. Finally, there is a greater chance of clouds or partly cloudy than sun in all seasons,

Granite Falls Now it is more of a snow escape. Summer is warm or hot with sunny days. Fall is mostly cool until late fall where snow is likely to be seen. Winter has lots of snow with potential blizzards throughout. Spring starts off with snow which dies down and ends by late spring.

Selvadorada Weather has changed based on jungle climate. Least amount of rain in winter and mid spring. Rain starts to pick up in late spring and increases during summer (although those days will usually be burning until late summer where rain is really likely) In early and mid fall, there will be the most amount of rain, as the frequency of hot days decreases. Also burning temperatures are possible from mid spring all the way to early fall (much more likely in summer) and thunderstorms are now possible from late spring to mid fall.

Newcrest slightly less rainy in spring with very low chance of thunderstorm in early spring and hot days in late spring. Thunderstorms less likely in summer (happens more in late summer) and burning weather as likely as hot weather only in mid summer. Fall has slightly less rain, more chance for cloudy days and very small chance for thunderstorms in late fall. Winter is the same except half as likely for blizzards in late winter

If you don't like the weather or think that something is wrong you can fix it with a few cheats.
first enter testingcheats on
then enter
seasons.set_season X
Change X to 0 for summer, 1 for fall, 2 for winter, or 3 for spring.
this allows you to reset the weather patterns (just change to a different seasons and change back and the weather will be different)

Another cheat that helps is weather.request_forecast (1-28) where the number you enter shows you the forecast for that many days.
Don't worry the moment you travel to a new place you no longer see the forecast for the entire calendar

While the mod was simple to make, it took a lot longer than expected because there was over 80 resources that needed modifying.
