This removes the silly sparkles that seem to infest all garden plants as soon as they are a bit nicer than crappy.

Update 2015-12-30: I think I managed to find the actual sparkle texture now, so I can override that directly -- that ought to be a much better approach than having to edit each plant individually. Since I can't track where exactly this texture is being applied, I can't tell for sure what it eliminates, but the garden of my sims is sparkle-free (and it sparkles like crazy without this mod).

Phew! Normal-looking plants!

Some of the plants on the screenshot use mesh overrides from here but the sparkle removal works independently of the mesh.

For several months now this mod no longer removes sparkles in my game. :-(
