you leave them outside for a really long time when its hot and they will eventually turn red.... it may take a while though.

I heard you have to leave your sims napping outside in their bathingsuit... Tried it with several sims for days, but it never happened...

Just make them wear outwear in summer outside, while drinking tomato juice.:D

EDIT: Oh, wait, no, that makes them have a heat stroke. I'm not sure if they get a sunburn, too.

I've had the same problem. I've left them outside for ages. I put a lounger in a nice sunny spot (no shadows) and left the sim out there for most of the day for several days and she just didn't get sub-burn.

I've got no custom skins or anything like that which could mess it up.

Maybe it only works on really hot days and I've just got to keep trying.

Try watching the thermometer near your sim's portrait. If the thermometer is full of red, it's probably gonna get sunburn. Either that or we go with the outerwear-in-the-summer plan.

its acctually not a silly question as it doen't say in the gaem manual at all (it all doesn't say how to freeze them but i managed that first day of playing) but i wouyld say leave them in a sunny spot that is defently sunny (turn shadows on whilst you place the lounger)then let them just have fun in the sun (let them swim if they have a pool but in it's sunny areas)then once there starting to get tired let them grill a hot dog and eat it in the sun then retire them to the sun lounger for a nap (in the sun). just let them go about every day buissenes in the sun or let them mess around in the sun and then they should get sunburnt (also iut would probally help if they got hot)

I've been wondering, does the sunburn really work on custom skins? From what I've heard they are supposed to, but I still haven't seen any sunburn. My sims was making out with her husband, and red went all the way up, but she still didn't get the burn. Maybe she needed to be outside?

I've had one Sim get sunburn, and I believe her skin is custom, but I could be wrong. Just leave them out until their temp bar gets red.

My sims have never got sun burnt. but I guess this is because I have never tried. One of my sims did die of the cold though in winter.

My sims never get sunburnt....Not even leaving them outside in the sun asleep.....They don't explode either, even when I left them in the hot tub for several hours. Their meter was red and kind of glowed, but no heat stroke and no exploding sims. They do freeze though....Strange.

Err...this is strange...I have never had anyone actually freeze either, or get sunburnt, or burn up! I have had at least 2 townies die from lightning though, and have had a bush catch on fire from lightning at the moment the rains stopped, so I had to call the fire brigade.

I had one sim run on a treadmill for DAYS during the summer, outside, and she just wouldn't get sunburn, or combust, or do anything. I even took out Paladin's hack, too, so I dunno what was going on. None of sims have ever frozen, either, although they have turned blue..

waiter, there's a conundrum in my soup

I left a sim in the hot tub for hours everyday during the summer...nothing ever happend, not even a sunburn. I wanted to see if they reall combusted :-\
I did have a sim freezes to death though. You have to leave them outside for a really long time. They freeze and fall over a couple times until their hunger meter bar gets to low, eventually the grim reaper comes for them.

Heheh.
I like to watch my sims burn. But I got a really bad buisness rating when about 3 sims combusted in the hot-tub on a home-buisness lot. xD

Today one of my sims had a heatstroke and her skin turned red. She had custom skin so it's possible to get a suburn with custom skin. I'm just gald she didn't burst into flames

I did have a Sim get a nasty burn from living in a room with one of those special fluorescent lamps from the garden centre that keep greenhouse plants and plantsims healthy. The lamp was installed in the room for the benefit of a plantsim.

the sunburn, is just an overlay, like a vampire, so having a custom skin wont mess it up.

but, i havent gotten on eather, except for one time...which was on a custom skin, and it was in the middle of winter, it was a glitch i supose. But it only lasted cuople of minutes.

You have to wait for when its REALLY hot, sort of like during winter, to freeze a sim, it has to be really cold.

good luck
