Animated - Fire Breathing Gargoyle
On my Patreon I made a poll about what to make next and a 'Halloween related object' was one of the options and the option that won!
The statue of the gargoyle itself is already part of the game if you have the Vampires game pack. There fore this pack is required for the Fire Breathing Gargoyle to appear in your game too.
Besides that my version of the gargoyle is much bigger, there're also a few other things I've added to make this gargoyle much more interesting.

First of all, just like the default gargoyle statue, this one has 7 recolors, is placeable on terrain and on pedestals. I've added the possibility to place them in fountains.
When in live mode, the gargoyle will always have smoke coming out of it's nostrils and mouth. To activate the fire breath, click the statue to get an interaction to switch it on. To switch it off, simply click the statue and after that the switch off interaction.
The fire breath itself is walk-through-able by Sims and pets, so if you don't want that to happen, place plants around and/or underneath the fire.

The following things might happen or can be done when the Fire Breath is activated:
- Sims standing or walking within 4 tiles all around the statue will recieve the 'Warm Breath' buff.
This buff will give a +1 happy boost. It will disappear either when they leave this area around the statue or if the fire breath is deactivated.
- Sims will get an extra interaction option when you click on the statue, which gives them the possibility to warm themselves by the fire. This interaction might be stopped before it's finished by switching the fire breath off.
- All snow objects within approximately 2,5 tiles around the statue, will melt away. These snow objects are: Snowpals, snow angels and snowdrifts.

Pets will interact with the fire breathing gargoyle too, both when the fire breath is activated as deactivated. When activated they might get obsessed with the fire and/or start to investigate the statue. They might show fear too. When deactivated, only the fear can still be a thing (as it's still a large scary smoking statue of course!).
To see all the above in motion and some more example scenes, you can watch the video linked at the top.
