By equipping a Plow and using it on any type of Autumnwood Leaves' blocks, they can all be transformed into Fallen Leaves. If you pick these up, they will all turn into blocks of Mocha Autumnwood Leaves. The ground below Autumnwood-trees is often (but not always) covered with Fallen Leaves too.
How to obtain
You can easily recognize Forests that feature Autumnwood trees by their brown and reddish colored tree tops on area maps (after you've discovered the according areas and such lifted the fog of war there).
Mocha Autumnwood Leaves as well as Citrus Autumnwood Leaves and Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves can be harvested/pulled with your ArcTek Gauntlet without needing any Power Cell. Still, it is recommended to use Mining Cells, since the harvest process will be faster and no Power Cell will lose any durability when harvesting uncorrupted Autumnwood Leaves (Mocha Autumnwood Leaves, Citrus Autumnwood Leaves, as well as Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves).
Of course you won't be able to pick up such blocks on game worlds, on player claims or in Adventures where your Permission rank is not sufficient (mainly when you are merely a visitor), which can only be changed by the owner of the game world, the respective claim owner or Adventure creator.
Mocha Autumnwood Leaves as well as Citrus Autumnwood Leaves and Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves can be bought as parts of (customizable) building kits for any customizable Blueprint with Coins, which in return are purchasable for real money via Steam Wallet in the ingame Store. You can use Blueprints that you have captured yourself with Capture Blocks, as well as Blueprints that were made by other players and that you have subscribed to in the Steam Creativerse workshop, or Blueprints that you have customized with Autumnwood Leaves.
To buy a building kit, either select the according Blueprint or activate a cornerstone that has been placed into the game world (and has optionally been customized). Check the content of the block kit first by clicking on the description "Built with xxx Blocks" before you'll click on the green price tag button below "Get kit and build now".
Mocha Autumnwood Leaves cannot be obtained from any Creature nor from any randomly spawning Treasure Chest, which also applies to Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves, while Citrus Autumnwood Leaves can randomly be obtained from Autumn Leafies either as a rare loot or pet-harvest.
No type of Autumnwood Leaves is part of any seasonal game content, Store bundle, seasonal minigame event reward or NPC trade offer.
You cannot grow Autumnwood-trees from Saplings, and no more Autumnwood Flowers than initially existed will slowly grow on Autumnwood Leaves (different from Blue, Red and Yellow Flowers). You can obtain Autumnwood Flowers from Autumn Leafies occasionally though, either as a loot or pet-harvest.
How to get rid of tree Leaves
In Creativerse, tree leaves will not decay / vanish by themselves when you "cut" down the stem of the tree nor if you take away all the Wood-blocks that the tree trunks and branches are made of. Instead, the blocks of Leaves (as well as all tree Flower-blocks, Beeswax, Queen Bees etc.) will prevail and float in the air even as single blocks, until you will take them down manually, destroy them or until use Excavators on them.
Basic Excavators can remove up to 7x7x7 uncorrupted Leaves blocks at once and save half of these blocks in their (usually 3) loot bags.
Destroying tree Leaves completely is possible by using the AOE Gauntlet Smash attack of your ArcTek Gauntlet when you have at least 75% of your maximum Stamina (either 75 for F2P players or 150 for "Pro" players, or more if you consume Stamina-enhancing Food) - by hitting the Leaves from above (it's a ground smash that will only affect 1 block upwards at most). This will remove Leaves up to 2 blocks to the sides and downwards from the point of impact without leaving anything behind.
Nearly all types of tree Leaves can be destroyed this way even without any Power Cell equipped (including Mocha Autumnwood Leaves, Citrus Autumnwood Leaves and Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves), except for uncorrupted Parchwood Leaves that require a Stone Mining Cell (or stronger Power Cell) in order to be eradicated. Power Cells don't lose durability when executing the Gauntlet Smash.
You can alternatively destroy uncorrupted tree Leaves (including Mocha Autumnwood Leaves, Citrus Autumnwood Leaves as well as Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves) by using TNT, and you can burn Autumnwood Leaves to nothingness by throwing Fire Bombs or Flaming Skulls at them. This can burn 7x7x7 blocks of Leaves at max. instantly (usually only 7x7x4 though), but will also remove uncorrupted Wood blocks that the tree trunks are made of, as well as tree Flowers and Queen Bees.
As leaves are flammable, burning them might work overly well in warm environments though! So beware of forest fires that will also burn down all the adjacent flammable blocks one by one, including Wood and tree Flowers. In very warm biomes (that bring up the heat meter/scale), and in Swamplands, it's possible to burn uncorrupted tree Leaves by placing any item that features open flames directly under a block of Leaves.
Spreading fires can be stopped by claiming the area and making sure that the fire spreading option for the claims is disabled (by default) - and game world owners can just disable the fire spread (fire sim) option for their game worlds (and later on turn the option on again after the fire has ceased).
On the other hand, burning attempts might stay below expectations in cold environments. Simple torches cannot even set fresh tree Leaves aflame in snowy biomes or on high altitudes.
As long as the fire spreading option of game worlds is not disabled (enabled by default), placing torches or any other items with open flames or fiery blocks like Hardened Lava directly under blocks of uncorrupted Autumnwood Leaves or uncorrupted Autumnwood (of tree stems and branches), is dangerous as the Leaves and Wood blocks can easily catch fire and burn to nothingness in hot environments that make a heat meter show up, like Oceans, Jungles or the Lava layer, but also in much cooler Swamplands.
Placing several torches or heat sources with open flames next to each other can even raise the chances to set flammable materials like uncorrupted Autumnwood Leaves on fire. Liquid Lava, Fire Bombs or Flaming Skulls will immediately set Autumnwood Leaves blocks on fire.
If Autumnwood Leaves blocks and/or Autumnwood blocks start burning, the flames are then able to spread to other nearby flammable blocks, even across gaps of 1-2 blocks on game worlds and player claims where the "fire spreading" option is enabled. This way a whole wooden building or forest (especially Weepwood trees, Wildwood trees, Parchwood and Shorewood though) can burn down in the worst case.
Fire cannot be extinguished by using liquids, but it can be stopped from spreading by claiming the area and making sure that the claim (advanced) option "fire sim/spreading enabled" is disabled (by default). Fire Bombs (and Flaming Skulls) will have no effect on these claims either.
It is also possible for owners of the game world (F2P players included) to toggle the spreading of fire on a whole game world in the basic world options ("edit world" and "disable fire spread"), which will also render Fire Bombs and Flaming Skulls useless there. Another option to stop fire from spreading would be to create forest aisles/swaths wide enough so that the flames cannot leap over.
How to use
All kinds of uncorrupted Autumnwood Leaves can be placed as solid blocks for decoration and can also be used for building; however they can make Creatures spawn, like ordinary Leafies or Autumn Leafies (more rarely) during the day, and Night Leafies in darkness.
You can fully rotate Mocha Autumnwood Leaves into all directions by pointing your cursor at them, then pressing and holding R (as the default key) and then moving the mouse while holding down the left mouse button. The chosen rotation angle can be "locked" too by simply typing "r" while looking at an already rotated block or item, so that all blocks of the same stack in the chosen quickslot will then face the same direction when being placed.
No crafting recipe is required for this. Simply carry blocks of Autumnwood Leaves with you in your inventory and activate a Processor in the game world with right-click or "f" (as the default key) while pointing your cursor at the Processor.
Shredded Leaves can be used as building blocks, but be careful: Shredded Leaves are just as flammable as fresh leaves when being placed. You can process Shredded Leaves blocks into Shredded Leaves Columns by putting them into a Processor (no crafting recipe is required). Shredded Leaves can also be used for crafting, mainly for Thatched Walls, Thatched Roofs, many types of Beds and several types of Carpets.
Mocha Autumnwood Leaves can be used as a Fuel for the Forge, however 4 blocks of uncorrupted Autumnwood Leaves (of any kind) are required for each melting-/hardening-process and will be used up by that. Also each melting-/hardening process in the Forge will take quite long when you use uncorrupted Autumnwood Leaves for a Fuel, since they are level 1 Fuel that burns the slowest.
Mocha Autumnwood Leaves (or also Citrus Autumnwood Leaves and Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves) can be corrupted into Corrupted Autumnwood Leaves by throwing Corrupt Bombs at them. By that they will turn into much faster burning Fuel of level 3, but they have to be picked up by using an equipped Diamond Mining Cell or Lumite Mining Cell, which will reduce the durability of these Power Cells quite a bit, which applies to pulling all kinds of Corrupted Blocks.
It's different if you purify any type of Corrupted Autumnwood Leaves without picking them up. When purifying Corrupted Autumnwood Leaves (that have not been picked up yet) with either Healing Beacons or Purification Bombs, they will all transform into red Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves instead of into the specific subtypes of Autumnwood Leaves (like maybe Citrus Autumnwood Leaves or Mocha Autumnwood Leaves) that they had been before they were corrupted.
All kinds of uncorrupted tree Leaves (including Mocha Autumnwood Leaves) can be used to craft
Only Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves can be used as an ingredient for
- Year of the Dog Lanterns that can be crafted after claiming the Forbidden City Bundle in the Store
- and Year of the Pig Lanterns that can be made after learning a Rare Recipe that can be obtained from Pigsy-type Creatures (with the highest chances as a pet-harvest after feeding these pets their exact favorite Food)
Other uses for Mocha Autumnwood Leaves
No Autumnwood Flowers grow/spawn by themselves on Mocha Autumnwood Leaves (or also Citrus Autumnwood Leaves and Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves) over time, different from Red Flowers (on Ashenwood Leaves), Blue Flowers (on Elderwood Leaves), Yellow Flowers (on Cragwood Leaves) or Wildwood Flowers (n Wildwood Leaves and Dark Wildwood Leaves).
You can also plant Queen Bees on Mocha Autumnwood Leaves (or also Citrus Autumnwood Leaves and Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves) that will transform into Beeswax within ca. 3,5 hours real-life time when done in suitable biomes (not too hot, not too cold, not on too high altitudes). The waiting time can be shortened for ca. 10-15 minutes by fertilizing Queen Bees with Pigsy Droppings.
Other than that, Mocha Autumnwood Leaves (or also Citrus Autumnwood Leaves and Cinnamon Autumnwood Leaves) can be put on display by placing them into the slots of display containers like Placemats, Stone Wall Shelves, Hidden Temple Altars, Galactic Grav-Chambers, Frozen Containers, Holiday Decorative Trees, Snow Buried Containers, Holiday Mantles, Wood Planters, Flower Pots or the like, where they will be reduced in size and cannot be rotated, corrupted nor burnt.
