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 and added interactions in motion, more info and some example scenes, please click this Youtube Video Link:

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.
