I've had the idea floating around in my head for a while to make a falling petals object that can be placed with trees during the springtime, and thought to pick apart the falling leaves effect that trees get in autumn as a base, since it would already be properly animated. I've successfully located the textures in Seasons' Textures.package file (ep5_leafparticle_txtr, ep5_leafparticle2_txtr and ep5_leafparticle3_txtr), but have been unable to locate a mesh that these textures go with. I've been going through the various ObjectsXX.package files in the same location but have been unsuccessful. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Meshes are located in TSData\Res\Sims3D/Objects03 for each EP/SP.* You could also just clone the tree in object workshop, unticking all the checkboxes.

I'm quite sure you're not going to find it because it is an effect named EP5_leavesFalling, not an object. Trees have multiple 'fire grow' slots and the effect is placed in several of them by an animation. However we do already have a falling petals effect from wedding arches named wedPetals that you might get away with using.

Thank you! I had assumed that whatever was displayed in the game must have a corresponding mesh to put it on for it to display, but I hadn't realized effects were handled differently.
In all my years of playing this game, I've actually never used any of the wedding arches--I had no idea they had such an effect! It looks promising!
