Animated - Mysterious Polaroid - Aurora

This file has been UPDATED on 18-02-2022 with the following things:
- It can now be found in the Pond VFX section in build mode.
- Object's title has been updated with an invisible 'Bakie' Search-tag in the title.
• Items can now also be found by typing Polaroid, Aurora or Borealis into the search bar.
- Object's description has been updated to new format.
- Price has been changed for better placement in the Pond VFX section.

- Placeable on Ponds.
- Placeable on slopes, which makes it easier to place it above uneven (pond/ocean) floors.
- Placeable outside of lots was already a thing when the polaroid was in your Sim's inventory. It wasn't possible though to place it from your Sims inventory onto the ocean's water surface. This option has now been added, so an aurora could also appear above the islands and ocean of Sulani for example (Thumbnail).

To make this happen, add the mysterioud polaroid to your lot, place it into your Sim's inventory (by clicking on it), swim or ride to the open sea and place it from your Sim's inventory on the ocean water surface by selecting the 'place into world' interaction.

Wait until it's dark and enjoy a beautiful aurora in the night sky!
Please RE-DOWNLOAD and delete the old file!

Animated - Mysterious Polaroid - Aurora
With the Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack, Auroras became part of our Sims worlds.
For this mod though, you only need the Base Game and you can decide for yourself where you want them to appear by placing a mysterious polaroid on the ground or on a deco slot.
As I've made it possible for your Sims to place the mysterious polaroid into their inventory, you can even let an Aurora spawn on a vacation- or hidden lot if you want!

Something else I've added, is an Inspired Moodlet whenever a Sim gets near the object.
The picture of the aurora on the mysterious polaroid itself, also starts to glow at 10pm and will glow all night until 4am in the early morning.
To see examples of the things mentioned above, take a look at the video!

Object information:
This mod only requires the Base Game to work.
It's a Standalone object, so it won't override any other objects in game.
To easily find it, type 'Aurora' into the search bar.
You can also find it by going to the Pond VFX section.
It can be recognized by my "BakieGaming" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.
