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.

Curious about the full waves effects in motion and some more info and example scenes, please click this Youtube Video Link:

Animated - Animated - Buoy + Waves Effects
More Waves for your beaches!
Place this unlocked buoy onto your water surfaces and activate it with an On/Off interaction to see one of the three possible waves effects.
To choose which effect you want to use on your lot, you can choose between 15 color swatches divided into 3 groups of 5 recolors. Each group of 5 recolors contains one single effect that will be repeated for an infnite time after activation or until you switch it off again.
The first effect is that of a small wave, the second is a much larger one just as the third one. For those last two I recomment to only activate one on your lot as they're quite big.
Curious how these waves effects will look in your game? Then take a look at the video to see them in motion.
I've also added some screenshots here with all 5 buoy recolors and the images from the thumbnail a bit bigger.

An important thing to mention abouth this object, is that you can't use the Recolor Tool to switch from one effect to the other.
The recolor tool only works for switching buoy colors. To switch effect, go into build mode and pick the right swatch.

Another thing that I need to mention is that this effect won't work on each and every lot in each world. I still don't know why this happens as it's a problem on EA's side.
I asked one of the Gurus on twitter about it, but I'm not getting any responce..
The lot on the thumbnail is situated on a 64x64 lot in Windenburg, so that one does work. As far as I know it doesn't work in the entire world of Oasis Springs and Stranger Ville, but maybe some of you wil have other experiences.
