How To Change the Weather

When you're decorating the outdoor area of the client's home, click the up button on your directional pad. This will bring up the time of day/weather bar and the bit you want to focus on is at the bottom of this bar. You should see that you have two tick-boxes and the one with the sun on it should already be ticked. The other box next to it will have a dark cloud and rain next to it. These are your weather options, tick whatever one you want.

How To Change the Time of Day

This is where you can select the time of day you want it to be on the Island. There are 24 different options for this. Yes, there is an option for each hour of the day. All you need to do is select the one that you think suits the home the best.

How To Change the Season
