Water reeds + Dragonflies effect (Animated)
This is my second mod in 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.
This time I added the effect of dragonflies, but that's not the only thing I added. If you have the Outdoor Retreat Expansion Pack, then you will also be able to catch dragonflies.
I did make some changes compared to catching insects in Granite Falls though, if you want to know what exactly, then go watch that video!
If you have the Seasons Pack, the dragonflies might disappear during certain weather conditions like rain and snow.
To see the actual effect and interaction 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.
This mod is Base game Compatible as for the object + Effect. If you want to be able to use the Catch dragonflies interaction, you will need the Outdoor Retreat EP.
The Water reeds + Dragonflies effect mod, is a standalone object, so it won't overwrite any other objects in game.
You can find the Water reeds + Dragonflies effect in Build mode > Fountain > Fountain decoration OR type Dragonflies into the search bar.
You can recognize this mod by my "BakieGaming" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.
The costs for the Water reeds + Dragonflies effect are: 150 Simoleons
Base Game Compatible
Outdoor Retreat for Catch Dragonflies Interaction.

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.
Thanks to the Sims 4 Studio
Thanks Adobe for making Photoshop
Description: Water Reed + Dragonflies If you have a large pond in your garden or park and want to make it look more alive, then place this water reed somewhere in the middle of your pond to have 3 Dragonflies flying around. Another nice addition is the option to catch the dragonflies. This is only possible if you have the Outdoor Retreat Game pack. Other then with this pack though, you can keep catching dragonflies. :) -- Type 'Bakie' in the in-game search bar to find all other mods released from July 2021 -- -- Made by BakieGaming -- -- Bakie on MTS & S4S -- -- For more Custom Content and Tutorials made by me, take a look at my BakieGaming Youtube Channel --
