Animated - Placeable Creatures - Onibi

This file has been UPDATED on 11-02-2022 with the following things:
- They can now be found in the Pond VFX section in build mode.
- Object's titles have been updated with an invisible 'Bakie' Search-tag in the title.
• Items can now also be found by typing Creature, Creatures or Onibi.
- Object's descriptions have been updated to new format.
- Object Thumbnails have been updated with (Animated) text adjustments.
- Object Thumbnails have been updated with a blue fading into black background color. This makes it more clear in the Pond VFX section that this object contains creatures and can be placed both on terrain as above water surfaces. It can be used in multiple worlds.
- Prices have been changed for better placement in the Pond VFX section.

- Placeable on Pond water surfaces.
- Placeable on slopes, which makes it easier to place it above uneven (pond/ocean) floors.
- Placeable on deco slots, so they can be placed on top of tables for example.

Animated - Placeable Creatures - Onibi
This invisible object which measures 2x2 tiles, has the ability to spawn Onibi.
For the people not knowing what Onibi are, these are the colorful forest spirits that can be found in the bamboo forest of Mt. Komorebi, the world that came with the Snowy Escape expansion pack.
As I've also attached some interactions beloning to this same pack, the Snowy Escape pack is required for the mod to work as intended.

The Onibi colors you can choose from are: white, blue, green, orange and yellow. As they all use a different tuning, the recolor tool won't work with this object. To switch colors, you need to select to right color swatch in build mode.
The interactions that can be found by clicking either the object or one of the onibi are:
- Wish something upon the Onibi: As this interaction is the same as the one the in-game Onibi has, it will appear in your own language.
- Make selfie with Onibi: Custom interaction with custom queue icon, thought balloon and buff (see image).
- Take picture of Onibi: Custom interaction with custom queue icon, thought balloon and buff (see image).

Important to know is that the Onibi theirself will disappear after a few in-game hours, but their sound will remain audible.
Now you can wait for a lot of hours more for them to re-appear or move/replace the object so the Onibi will spawn immediately.
To easily find the invisible object, I made the object itself a bit bigger then normally. You can then hover your mouse over the terrain until the grabbing hand appear or use the eyedropper tool until the name appears and after that switching to the grabbing hand.

Another thing you might want to know, is that the object is also placeable on the water surface of fountains, pools and the ocean.
Interactions can still be executed when the object is placed near the border of fountains and pools or near an ocean's floor slope.

If you want to see examples of everything mentioned above and to see both the animation as well as the interactions in action, then take a look at the video linked above.
