Animated - Placeable Amphibian - Jumping Frog
First of all, I know it's a bit late, but as this is my first mod in 2020: I want to wish everybody a very happy new year! Let it be an awesome year in whatever way you want it to be!
About the object, just as a lot of my other animated animal objects, the object itself is invisible and will repeatedly spawn an effect each few in-game minutes.
The effect that spawns this time, is that of a jumping and eventually swimming frog.
As this effect, that came with the Realm of Magic patch, is probably used somewhere in Glimmerbrook on sloped terrain, you will notice that after placement the object will spawn a bit above ground. With each jump the frog makes, it will get closer to the ground though. The final jump starts on the terrain.
If you want to camouflage the points where it doesn't hit the ground, it can be best done by placing some lower-flowerbeds like on my second image.
To see the eventual effect in motion with use of those flowerbeds, please take a look at my video. More example scenes can be found in there too.
For the people wondering how to replace or delete invisible objects, just hover your mouse over the place where the effects starts (Where you placed the object) and a grabbing hand will appear. You can now pick it up and replace it or press the delete key to delete the object.
This mod only requires the Base Game.
It's a Standalone object, so it won't override any other objects in game.
To easily find it, type "Frog" into the search bar. It will then be the 'Animated - Jumping Frog' result (For if you have my other animated frogs in your game too).
You can also find it by going to the Fountain's Decoration section.
it can be recognized by my "BakieGaming" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.
The cost are: 4 Simoleons
Base Game compatible
Tested with gameversion: 188.8.131.520
Custom Content visible on the Thumbnail made by me:

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.

Description: Jumping Frog This invisble object spawns a jumping and eventually swimming frog. You can use it to make your lots to look more realistic. If placed on terrain, be sure to hide both the invisible object as the part where the frog dives into the ground. If you want to see the frog swimming away, add a swimming pool to the part where it jumps into the ground. It's recommendable to not use a pond as the vfx of the frog looks best on flat terrain. -- 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 --
