Major update 5th of November 2022: The mod now also removes the chance for weather stones to cast a lightning strike on the Sim, as well as makes it so that geyser rifts in Into the Future's dystopian future no longer has a chance of giving the "Lightning Magnet" moodlet.


The Sims 3: Seasons often has thunderstorms. A lot of thunderstorms. And they're a part of almost any form of rainy weather. It's far from unusual to have thunder 4 days a week, or to have thunderstorms last 2 days straight.

With this override mod to remove lightning, your Sims can go out in rainy weather with nothing to fear, so they can jump in puddles, test out umbrellas, and simply be able to be outdoors in general. The mod also aims to help soothe the fears of players out there who may have astraphobia, a fear of lightning.

Weather-related lightning strikes on world lots become impossible to occur ever again and will be a thing of the past, and even thunder in the faraway distance become a statistical anomaly that happen maybe once every 2 weeks or so.
