This global hack disallows leaves to fall and form piles during fall. Basically that means no more leaf piles. Now you don't have to worry about raking them up anymore!

This hack should work with any EP and SP. It should also be compatable with any hack, including my weather changing hacks.

Please report any bugs or glitches, caused by this hack, to me.

Thank you ezonis34 for requesting this hack.

Would it be possible to do a "Fewer falling leaves" hack? It would be nice to have my gardener (or my sims for that matter) didn't spend all their time raking leaves, but still have some leaves sometimes.

Sorry, Alicelove, but I can't make it produce less leaves. It's only all or nothing.

I think it's a great package--but the falling leaves I enjoy. Once in awhile one falls REALLY close to the camera and I marvel at the detail EA put into a single leaf. I like to see the children and toddlers play in the leaves, though the play is ridiculously oversimplified. Anyway. Autumn is my favorite season--I enjoy the leaves so much. I miss being able to walk through and crunch through the leaves, and the colours still amaze me. All this to say I admire the work you put into this, but I'd download it if it produced more leaves, say, leaves like a snowfall, truly covering a neighborhood inches deep. That's what really happens, some places. And that puts the compost bins to work for real!

I come from a land down under.
Where our trees don't drop leaves. Branches, yes.
Big heavy branches that smash houses and cars, but not leaves.

Thanks mate, good one.

Thank you so much. Having to rake leaves is the pitts. I love a lot of trees in my yard but the leaf raking was awful.

Thanks mate, good one.

Some/Most native trees may not, but we do get autumn leaves in Australia. Though perhaps not so much in the northern states. That was one notable difference when I lived up north - no autumn!
