This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: Water reeds + Ducks effect (it's only 3:44 minutes long)



UPDATED on 6 feb 2020
Fixed a few problems with shadows seeing through and added Repeat Placement for all swatches, not only the first one.
You only need the second file, so delete the old file from your mods folder if you already had that one.


Water reeds + Ducks effect (Animated)
This is the first of a series of mods which all will use the same object, but will have another effect added to it.
By using all these different objects/effects, you can create some awesome looking custom ponds.

For this particular mod, you will get the water reeds object with 3 white ducks swimming around it and making duck sounds.
As placing just one water reeds object doesn't look very good, I added an On/Off switch to the object. This way you can use the water reeds both as a decoration object as like a ducks spawner.
To see the actual animation/effect and learn how to use it, I recommend watching my video at the top of this page. Doing so, you will also get some tips and tricks on how to use the object when only using it for decoration.

Bonus Item - Duck statue override
With the free September update, we also got some free objects added to the game. One of them was a Duck statue.
YouTuber Iron Seagull wondered in one of his videos why EA didn't made the duck able to be placed on slots.
So as a small present for his just reached 10K subscribers and because it just matches my mod really well, I decided to make it able and add it as a Bonus Item.


Object information:
Both objects are Base game Compatible
The Water reeds + Duck effect mod, is a standalone object, so it won't overwrite any other objects in game.
The Duck statue is an override of the duck statue that was added with the September update.
You can find the Water reeds + Ducks effect in Build mode > Fountain > Fountain decoration OR type Ducks into the search bar.
You can find the Duck statue in Buy mode > Decoration > Statues OR type Duck into the search bar.
They can be recognized by my "BakieGaming" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.
The costs for the Water reeds + Ducks effect is: 150 Simoleons
The costs for the Duck statue is: 120 Simoleons

Game Requirements:
Base Game Compatible

Game Version:
Tested with gameversion: 1.34.18.1020

To use with this mod:
Snowhaze here on MTS made a great object to use with my mod, she also changed the Duck Statue so it will stay on the ground instead of on a trunk and changed the colors to make it more realistic.
Both her mod as mine can be used at the same time. You can find her mod right here:
- Grounded Ducks

I Hope you like it and will give me some credit if used in screenshots or videos!

Besides giving me credit and linking back to this page, I would appreciate it if you could add my video too instead of (only) the thumbnail.

Additional Credits:
Thanks to the Sims 4 Studio
Thanks Adobe for making Photoshop
Thanks to Iron Seagull for giving the idea of making the Duck statue placeable in slots too.
