This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.


For the actual effects in motion, and more of a deepdive into the possibilites with this object, please click this Youtube Video Link:
Animated - (Filthy) Bone Fish + Eagle

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!

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.

Just curious why you didn't make the effect looping on this one?

Because I can't. All effects I use are made by Maxis. The eagle comes from the Granite Falls world. You can see it fly above the lake. Right now we don't have enough knowledge yet to know what or where to change the settings of these effects. Then I'm talking both about things as looping effects, but also spawning at certain times or in certain seasons. I hope this will be possibel one day though.

I really didn't think that I would end up liking this one as much as I do. What a strange little thing did Bakie make here, I thought at first. But now, I find myself using it more and more to spice up certain parts of neighborhoods, giving run-down houses/apartments the final touch, or dropping it onto lots of a disliked sims as a prank.

With the enabled uncomfortable buff, it's also a quick and easy way to make things more difficult - and the game certainly needs more challenges. Even without the eagle, this is a great and underrated item. With it, its usefulness cannot be overstated.

I would love to see more objects like this, i.e. ones that spread negative moodlets (perhaps a piece of art that makes nearby sims embarrassed? Well, just a thought).

Anyways, thank you Bakie for this unique and outstanding mod! And sorry for ever doubting you, even if it was for just an instant!

Well, thank you for taking the time to write this all. And sorry for not answering any sooner. I've been busy with a lot of other things recently, but new mods are coming! I'm very happy to read that you like this object this much. For a lot of my mods I always wonder if people will think it's just as useful or fun to use as that I think it can be. So I'm glad this one definitely does that for you. I hope my future mods ( not all possibly) will make the game even more fun for you. Thanks again for your words, I really appreciate it!
