WE NEED SNOW DEPTH IN THE SIMS 4!

UPDATE 3: Basically this petition hasn't become into a snow depth petition only, but a features petition for the whole pack.
It has been missing many legacy features as accumulation, sunbathing, suntan, sunburn, igloos, parasols and hail.
We need to stop greedy EA.
UPDATE 2: Grant tweeted that it was for aesthetic issues.
UPDATE: I contacted EA Help and they confirmed the issue is for 'lag' issues.
In 'The Sims 4: Seasons' Expansion Pack, as you see, lacks in snow depth and accumulation of snow on roofs.
This has been noticed by many fans in the reveal trailer and the promo screenshots released by The Sims Team.
In an article made by SimsCommunity they described the issue very well.
The sims feet don't even sink a little in snow, and snow feels like a flat rug.
We DEMAND EA or Maxis to change this ASAP. This feature has been in The Sims 2 Seasons (2007) and The Sims 3 Seasons (2012). Not seeing it in The Sims 4 Season (2018) seems truly depressing and proves how weak the engine The Sims 4 is built with.
EA is charging players 40$ for the MOST anticipated The Sims 4 pack. 40$ for a pack with a feature many players missed.
There has been a forum post on the official The Sims forums about this issue, and all users are showing their disappointment.
The Sims team have been very silent about this issue when asked by many players.
If this petition gets enough people signed to it, maybe we can draw EA's attention and maybe they can fix this issue on later updates. We demand answers.
Please EA, don't come up with bad excuses as "FOR PERFORMANCE ISSUES!" because, if is that their answer and logic for everything, I'll go play Pong or Diner Dash! It's better in performance! If you really care about low-end PC players, then you don't really care about High-end PC players? Because I guess that's a 50/50 in the sims community. Why not make an option for both? It's not like this feature was absent from previous games. So making it an option to Enable or Disable it will be the perfect solution for both players.
We hope EA doesn't also take the 'It's a trade off another feature!' because most (if not all) features in TS4's version of Seasons have been in previous games, even if it's one new feature, it still doesn't justify the problem as The Sims 2 Seasons had a new world and The Sims 4 Seasons doesn't, also they said that They focused SO MUCH on the details of every season to make the worlds as gorgeous as possible, yet winter looks like a skiing area. All flat, no depth.
We hope EA will look at that and BECOME REASONABLE and add this feature. It's either EA cutting budgets for the game, the engine is bad, or simply the team behind The Sims 4 is lazy. We don't know, but these are the only reasons why such a legacy feature like this will get removed.
We hope you will support this petition! Thank you!
