Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Do you love fish? Playing with them, watching them, but then forgetting that they need to eat too? The 60 gallon dry aquabox is perfect for you!

The Aquabox Dry Aquarium comes pre-stocked with (a) fish made from only the best scrap metal. Watch it swim in circles. Watch fish watch other fish swim in circles. Watch the fish watch each other. Well okay, you can only watch the fish hang perfectly suspended in the dryest of compressed air. A fish can't swim without water after all. And a metal fish certainly can't be in water.

No feeding required. It is metal scraps afterall.



This is a custom aquarium with a single fish. Well technically it was a statue with custom interactions and light added. =) No feeding, no stocking, no cleaning.
  • Sims can Watch Fish or Play with Fish
  • Fun increases while Play with Fish
  • Available for teen through elder.
  • Found in Deco/Misc for §1500
  • 1118 polys on one tile
  • Two subsets (fish/base)

OK, I'm gathering from the end of your description that it isn't animated?

All the same, it's a beautiful thing. Thank you for making it.

The big question is - does this increase nature enthusiasm like other aquariums? Or arts and crafts enthusiasm because it is a scrap metal statue fish?

Somehow, I find the idea of my Sims interacting with a piece of scrap metal hilarious. It seems like something those idiots would do...

It's a base game object with custom BHAVs in BG/UNI format. It doesn't affect any enthusiasm (though art, nature, tinkering or science could each be seen as appropriate), only fun motive.

Neder is correct. There are no EPs required, which means it also doesn't take advantage of enthusiasm. I try to make things base only when possible.

I made it because it amused me to think my sims are talking to scrap metal.

Aww, OK. I ask because I use fish for nature enthusiasm a lot. Safer than hunting bugs, with surprise bee attacks.

What a fun idea! I, too, find it incredibly amusing to have my Sims talk to a piece of metal - makes me feel a little better about talking to my computer all the time.
