A Sim shivering from the cold.

Temperature is a feature introduced in The Sims 2: Seasons, The Sims 3: Seasons, and The Sims 4: Seasons that is tied closely to the weather mechanics of the game. In all games, the outdoor temperature has an effect on a Sim's internal temperature; if Sims become too hot, they can cool down by going swimming or grabbing a cold drink, while Sims who are getting too cold can warm up by changing into outerwear. In all cases, going indoors will help them cool off or warm up. Sims that get too hot may faint from heatstroke or get sunburned, while Sims that get too cold may freeze and collapse.

The outdoor temperature also a has a profound effect on Sims' lives. Colder temperatures will produce visible frost and cause bodies of water to freeze over, and precipitation will come in the form of snow if it is cold enough. Warmer temperatures will produce much more violent thunderstorms and hail, and heat hazes may become visible.[TS3S] The current season determines the average outdoor temperature, with spring and summer bringing warmer temperatures, and fall and winter bringing colder temperatures.

In The Sims 2 and The Sims 4, real-world temperature units are not used to determine the temperature, and instead a scale ranging from -100 to 100—with the former being the coldest and the latter being the hottest—is used. The Sims 3 is the only game to use real-world temperature units like Celsius and Fahrenheit.

Featured article queueEdit

The articles listed here are set to be featured in upcoming months. They are added to this list in the order that they were voted upon by the community.

Selecting new Featured ArticlesEdit


Any user can nominate an article for Featured Article, as long as the article wasn't already featured. Users should copy and paste the following under "Current nominations" below in order to nominate an article:

{{subst:FA Nomination
|name     = 
|reason   = 
|sig      = ~~~~
|time     = {{subst:#time: U |now}}

Name is the name of the article being nominated, and reason is a brief explanation of why the article should be featured. Do not change the text for sig or time.


Any user can vote for as many nominated Featured Articles as they wish. All votes need to be signed (using four tildes: ~~~~) in order to be counted, and each user may only vote for each article one time. All votes will last for two weeks. If a nomination has more support votes than oppose votes after voting, it will be placed in the Featured Article queue. Articles will be featured in the order they appear in the queue, and order in the queue will be the order of passage, unless the queue is re-arranged due to a game release or other special event.

Current nominationsEdit


Nominated article: School
Nomination reason: This article covers all of the four main games pretty nicely and didn't notice any huge errors. It would also be pretty fitting, since school starts in August in some countries.
