(BUG) Leaf piles stick around forever
« on: January 30, 2019, 10:28:21 PM »
I've noticed that leaf piles around the neighborhood that don't get burned or thrown out during fall sick around forever being smelly. Is there some way to get rid of them? I can burn them and they stay piles and don't reduce to ash.

This is a well known bug, you could 'me too' the report here:
https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-S-Leaf-piles-Ashes-don-t-disappear/m-p/6892043#M65899

There is a description of a cheat work-around that helps in some cases starting on about page 3 of the thread.

Luckily this is one of the bugs the QA guys have acknowledged so hopefully a bug-fix should be coming in a patch soon.

Sweet. I read a lot of suggestions on that thread and one of them was that the piles overlap which I never noticed which is why they take a few times to turn into ash. Hopefully it gets patched but if not I've got some quick fixes!

You should be able to yes. And if it doesnt appear to work keep trying it. They might still be overlapping. I havent had this issues since the update, I'll head into my game that it occured a bunch and see if it happens

Edited: yes burn it a few times, set the fancy trash can that gives you money as head, walk around a few times and select throw away until its successful.
