I guess the easiest way to explain leaves is to show how to change an existing .par file to a new one for use in a new map
(I used files from Unity Oregon to put in Pole Canyon this way)

First you need 4 files to manipulate

the .par file the .png file the alpha file and the tex file

The .par file I copied from my first leaf par in Unity Oregon then opened it in note pad

I changed Unity Oregon to Pole Canyon

Then saved as fallingleaves_gold_red.par in my new map level Pole Canyon I then saved the .tex file as is with the same name as .tex I then copied and pasted both .png files to the top folder of Pole Canyon (where the LoadingBG ,light maps and GameMap jpegs are so as not to confuse the editor.) (Through expiermentation I found that sometimes you can confuse the editor with path names.)

all leaves are placed in the new level with the same process, different names being different colors and types

then I fired up the editor and created new new object files, leaves1,leaves2 and leaf3 you could name your file anything you want , I grouped the colors by type so each object would show different colors of leaves for each name.

the different types were created with my graphics program and then renamed accordingly with the same four files par,png,alpha and tex

Back to the editor to show how to place object

navigate to the spot at the bottom of a tree and select the desired object

then navigate back to where you can see the top of the tree

select the object and
move it to the top of the tree

now you should see your object falling from the top of the tree to the ground

Place as many objects as you desire and move them to the top of the trees in the same manner
you can mess with the velocity and the gravity to get your desired effect or leave at the default

hope this helps with particle file manipulation
