    Sims can’t use the telescope

    Problem My sim wanted to watch the stars but instead of doing so, he resets Cause Seasons brings us Aliens and it seems they still have something to do with the telescope.

I don’t have a solution for you if you don’t plan on getting it. The EP did not solve the issue for travel worlds.
