Snow-covered decorations

I really like the dead, wintery look of the trees. It's realistic and of course pine trees would still look fine as they would in real life.

    I don't mind the Christmas skin for the trees...what do you mean reasonable...trees loose their leaves in winter...it's fact, and it happens,

    It's an interesting change to have a load of leafless trees around where before they was big green and full...it gives allot of areas a complete different look for a month...

    Have you ever seen trees in the winter before? :shock:

    I think the Springfield sign looks best covered with snow.
    I thought it looked kind of plain and ugly before, but now I like it.

    I hope they keep it covered with snow permanently.

    Agreed that snow covered trees and bushes look great, but I think I will hold off on any more landscaping until it melts as it makes it harder to see what looks good together when its all snowy and/ or dead looking.

    I dig the snow. Its a really nice change that has invigorated things for me, decoration wise.

    Moreover, I really hope that the snow doesn't go away with the January update. Let it stick around for a little while. Especially since EA did actually expend a fair amount of effort on it.

    The only plant that was overlooked frost/snow-wise, was the one that could have used it the most. *Oh EA, you missed a spot* :wink:

    As someone from non-snowy winters, this update looks great! I get to enjoy snow but not the cold.

    Would be nice to see a "spring version" of the trees with little buds of green but not full and leafy. Maybe some flowers with bees buzzing around?

    A lot of the trees and things look kinda dead in their Christmas guise. Seems like you have to re-landscape for Christmas. Only the pines look reasonable really.

    I love the look of the pine trees...switched out some of my leafless trees in pretty areas with pines for the season. I'm not going crazy with re-landscaping, but a few things here and there really make a difference.
