Animated - (Filthy) Bone Fish + Eagle

This file has been UPDATED on 02-02-2022 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.
This item can now also be found by typing Bone fish, Eagle, Bird or Birds into the search bar.
- Object's description has been updated to new format.
- Object Thumbnail has been updated with (Animated) text adjustments.
- Object Thumbnails has been updated with (Animated) text adjustments & eagle images on the first two swatches.
- Object Thumbnail has been updated with a light green background color. This makes it more clear in the Pond VFX section that this object has to be placed on terrain. It can be used in multiple worlds.
- Price has been changed for better placement in the Pond VFX section.

- Object is now placeable underneath Water Surfaces (Also on shallow ocean floors).
• WHY: This can be used if you like to have dead fish laying in your pond for whatever reason. Using the first or second swatch, the eagle flying above it will be lowered.
- Object is now placeable on slopes, which makes it easier to place it above uneven (pond/ocean) floors.

Animated - (Filthy) Bone Fish + Eagle
It all started with just a bone fish and the option to spawn an eagle, but ended with a bit more!
Besides the option to spawn an eagle in the sky, you can also activate 'filthy' VFX on the dead fish. After activating it, a green smoke and flies will appear around the dead fish.
After these effects have been activated at least one single time, your Sims will also get an uncomfortable feeling when being near this object. Walking away from it, will make this uncomfortable feeling to go away.

As I can imagine that some people rather don't want the eagle to appear in the sky and/or the mood to be enabled after activating those additional filthy VFX, I've added 3 extra swatches which take care of that.
Because these swatches don't change the color of the object but how they work in game, you can't use the recolor tool. You'll have to go to the catalog if you want to use another swatch.

I've also added the possibility to place these fish into your Sim's inventory, so they can be placed outside the lots too.
Both your Sims can place them in by using the 'put in inventory' interaction or you can drag them into the inventory yourself as I enabled 'livedrag' for this object. This also means you can replace this object while being in live mode instead of build mode.

The last thing I want to share, is that I've added the possibility for cats to 'eat' the bone fish too. The fish won't disappear after the eating, but you will see an eating animation. Think as it more like nibbling on the fish skeleton.

To see examples of all the things mentioned above, take a look at the video!
