"Snowy" (Hard Winter) Season not showing ...
« on: February 28, 2019, 10:56:28 AM »
This has been a problem for me for a long time. If I am flying "summer" and change seasons to "winter" ... I get a mix of snowy trees at high elevations and green trees lower (basically Spring).  If (when my computer time is set to 02.28.2019) I reset to system time ... then all the snowy trees appear. But this seems to work only by resetting the system time.  Anybody else see this?

If you just change the Sim Season to winter it will set to December 22.   You have to also change the calendar to be something in January/Feb for hard winter.  Resetting to System time is just doing a calendar change to your sim calendar.  Instead just use the sim calendar right above the Seasons option to change to the correct month and day that  you want.

So, basically, the "change season" doesn't work, right?

It works buth the Change Season doesn't have an option to change to Hard Winter....only to winter (e.g. December).  There is no Hard Winter option in Change Season.

OK ... you can see why I wasn't worried about "snowy trees" for the Season Switchers I made earlier ... all I saw were green trees on a snowy terrain.  Using the calendar is the way to go. Thank you.

I’m going to work this into our Season Switcher FAQ.  Thanks for this, Deiter.
