Now instead of dull, brown leaves, all of your leaves in your neighborhood will have a rich, orangey, autumney look to them. This is a default replacement of the Maxis Leaves that came with Seasons. Not to be used with any other leaf replacement. Enjoy!

Thanks! What a simple seeming thing that actually looks like it'll make a big difference.
Not actually evil.

Leaves are supposed to be bright orange, gold, and red, at least where I used to live. Where I am now, they actually are yucky brown, but at least my sims can have proper leaves now.

YAY! I always thought it was funny how dead the leaves looked.

Oh fab! I love collecting colourful leaves during autumn, so it'll be wonderful to have these in the game! Thank you!

There's other leaf replacements? You know you're an original

Thanks, such a simple thing but it makes a big difference. Much more fun to play in than those old nasty Maxis leaves.

They can't be "bought", if that's what you're asking, the leaf piles appear next to trees in Autumn (requires Seasons, obviously), this mod makes the leaves in the piles brighter.
