Are you tired of waiting for leaf piles to burn down so that you can throw out the ashes left behind? Are you even more tired of the game telling you that a trash can is required when you try to clean them up??

This mod allows the leaf pile to burn normally, but when it's done burning there are no ashes left to throw out.

Requires Seasons.

To Install
Unzip and place the .package file into the Mods folder.


This mod will conflict with any mod using the following resources. It will not conflict with my "No Gross Leaf Piles" mod.

Note: compatible with

Two additional notes about this update:
  • It seems that leaf piles now disappear some set time after any Sim plays in them. It happens with both my leaf mods removed from the game, so I'm pretty sure this is EA behavior.
  • This mod used to have a very minor positive affect on the success rate of lighting a leaf pile on fire. It never worked as well as I wanted, and the resource file involved had a number of changes, so I removed it.

YAY because of course the builders of the neighbourhoods didn't put bins in some places so you just have these things stinking up the place.. forever

Still works for me, I was worried it wouldn't. But that was mostly cuz forgot I would have to start a new game after installing this mod. (I've got all EPs, SPs, etc. plus the latest patch). But anyways, thanks akacat for this mod!! It's probably my most useful one (after MC Command Center of course )
