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


For the actual effect in motion, more info and some example scenes, please click this Youtube Video Link:
Animated - Placeable Insects - Butterflies IL

Animated - Placeable Insects - Butterflies IL
This butterflies floor decal spawn a group of 4 butterfly species that can also be seen flying around as a group on Sulani, the world that came with the Island Living expansion pack.

By hovering over the object, an interaction symbol appears. When you click it, a 'View group of butterflies' interaction will appear.
When viewing, a custom thought balloon will appear showing a heart-shaped group of butterflies.
After the interaction has finished your Sim will get a custom happy buff that will last for 2 in-game hours.

To see the group of butterflies in motion, examples of the things mentioned above and a short explaination why I didn't include an invisible floor decal too, 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 'Butterflies' into the search bar. If you have my Jungle Butterflies too, you obviously need the one mentioning Island Living.
You can also find it by going to the Decoration's Misc section.
It can be recognized by my "BakieGaming" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.
The costs are: 3 Simoleons

Game Requirements:
Base Game Compatible

Game Version:
Tested with gameversion: 1.63.134.1020

Other Custom Content visible on the Thumbnail made by me:
None

I hope you like this Butterflies mod and if you do, please leave a comment!
If you want to use it in screenshots or videos, be sure to give me some credit!

Besides giving me credit and linking back to this page, I would appreciate it if you could add my video instead of (only) the thumbnail.

Polygon Counts:
4 vertices and 2 polygons

I'm happy to see you like this extra thing of thought-balloons and moodlets. I'm still learning! And I do hope this will help my mods to become more interesting.

I think there will definitley will be more butterflies in future, but not in near future I'm afraid. Eco Lifestyle gave me so much more ideas on my already too long mod-ideas-list. My next mod will also have a moodlet by the way, but no animals.

Despite being my arch-enemy, nemesis, and the best darn friend a devastatingly handsome supervillain like me could ever hope for, I find your creations an utter delight! I truly do. I even said "utter" to enhance the delight I feel. I shall enjoy them in my game as I frolic with my pet butterflies and cockroaches as I formulate my plan for revenge! Yes. Revenge! There are cockroaches? There better be cockroaches!

Anyway, I plan on exacting my diabolical revenge upon thee next Tuesday. Are you busy or have any prior engagements? I'd cancel them if I were you. It's common courtesy, after all. You agree? Of course, you agree. You better agree.

Kisses and kittens!!! lol

Yes. He is. A genius.

An EVIL genius! Like Einstien. A Frank Einstien! However, he looks nothing like the Frankenstein monster. The punned name is an actual coincidence that I made up. I really did!

He wants us to love his stuff. It's all a part of his diabetic plan. He's luring us ALL into a trap. Apart from me, because I see his trap. It's a very creative and talented trap. I believe it won an award. A Trap Award. There was a ceremony, a banquet and ballroom dancing. It was quite the event. Some say it was the event of the season. So, that's saying something.

And, what is his evil plan? I hear you ask. Literally. Thanks to my superhearing and the bugging device I have hidden in the room where you sit. Indeed. What is his plan? Do you know it? Because I haven't got a clue. All I know is, it's diabetic AND diabolical. So.

Saints preserve us.

WHAT I IF TOLD
YOU

THAT YOU READ
THE FIRST LINE WRONG?

Cockroaches...it's good you mention them, I still need them in my own game too. No Duncan, I'm not talking about you, though I do need you in my game too..
I think I missed you on tuesday, I was ready for your revenge, I was even dressed in a smoking smoking. Smoking so you couldn't really see I was wearing a smoking and so the revenge would become a bit less easier for you. You do like smoking right? No, not that big sigar of yours, I mean my smoking smoking, as I don't smoke myself. Anyway, you wasn't there and now my smoking smoking caught on fire and I'll have to buy a new one. You better pay for that one! The new one I mean as the other one isn't worth a single penny. Hope we meet soon for your revenge my dear friend!

I do, and Duncan quite does the job. Though he can do better.. His first ever story which I'm not allowed to call stories as they all happen in real life in another dimension somwhere far, far away.. was a very long one on YouTube in the comments.
I remember he told me I was the first one ever responding on his 'stories'. And now he keeps commenting like this every once in while. So I warn you, if you don't want to become his next victim, you better do'nt answer him :P
If you do, I'm not responcible for the consequences! In the mean time, I will re-comment all his comments like I always do!
Have a nice day! Both Wiseiam as Duncan!

Hey, bakie. I want to say that you have the ability to transform these games and I thank you so much!

Only thing is that I'm not able to experience your CC/mods. For some reason, when they're in my mods folder, none of my CC is available for gameplay; alternatively, when I remove all of your mods, the game runs just fine & it shows all of my previously downloaded CC. I downloaded from your catalog a bunch of animated and unlocked objects (around 40), and I cannot figure out which mod is breaking my game. The package files are all no more than 4 subfolders deep from the main mod folder (eg, mods>1>2>3>4), and I scoured the comment sections to most of your downloads to see if anypne else experienced similar issues. Please, if you or anyone could help me figure this out? I am grateful!
