There is weather within each season, including rain, hail, lightning storms, and snow. Although weather was originally planned for release in the original Sims 2 base game, a 3D rendering error prevented this from being possible: rain would fall into enclosed housing areas, and other graphical rendering problems would occur. Weather may also adversely affect Sims. For example, heat in summer may cause a Sim to experience heatstroke or (if Sims 2 Bon Voyage is also installed) receive a sunburn. Sims who are outside during the winter may feel cold, though they can be warmed in various ways. A Sim can freeze if they spend too much time outside in bad weather. Sims can die due to heatstroke and they can also freeze to death. Other Sims have the option of a "thaw" interaction, provided their relationship is high enough. Children who are allowed to get too cold or too hot do not die, but are instead taken away by social services. Rarely, Sims who go outside during a rainstorm can be struck by lightning, but this more commonly happens to trees or other objects.
