Waterlily Recolor + Animated Fish
I'm proud to present you not only 5 additional colors for the pink watelily, but also a great way to make your own ponds and aquaria with ANIMATED FISH!
In the .rar file you will find 2 packages:
- One of them is an overwrite of the pink waterlily already in game, that adds 5 extra flower colors: Yellow, White, Red, Blue and Purple.
- The second is a StandAlone containing these same 6 waterlily colors but also add ANIMATED FISH jumping and swimming around the waterlilies.

These are perfect for creating some realistic ponds on your lot.
They can be placed both in swimmingpool as in fountains.
Placing these in fountains will result in seeing fish jumping out of the water, placing these in swimmingpools will result in seeing fishes jump ot of the water and swimming around underneath the watersurface.
You can even make windows in you swimmingpool and create your own aquaria. (Only way to see the fish swim will be to be on the level you placed the lilies, then hit "tab" to go into camera mode and then go one level down to see the fish swim around.
For a nice effect you can use my Finding Nemo Wallpaper + Flooring and/or my Finding Nemo Wallstickers for a nice background. In swimmingpools it even looks like they are moving due to the movement of the water inside the pool.
The waterlilies can be enlarges, but the animated fish will stay the same size.

Object information:
This download contains 2 packages. One is an Waterlily Overwrite Non-Animated and one is a StandAlone Animated. Both have an additional 5 recolors beside the original pink one.
You can find the Waterlilies in Built mode > Fountain > Fountain Decoration
They're named "Waterlilies Recolors" (That's the Overwrite) and "Waterlilies Fish Spawner (Animation)". This last one will have written "Animated Fish"on it's thumbnail.
You can also find them by typing "waterlilies" into the searchbar.
The waterlilies costs 100 Simoleons each.

Mods that can be seen on the thumbnail (all by me):
- Finding Nemo Wallpaper + Flooring: Click Here
- Finding Nemo Wallstickers: Click Here
- Don't Signs: Click Here

Game Requirements:
The Sims 4 Full Game

I Hope you like it and will give me some credit if used in uploaded houses!

Additional Credits:
Thanks to Sims 4 Studio and their excelent support.
Thanks Adobe for making Photoshop.

First, I wanted to thank you this looks very cool! Second, if I clone your animated lilys to change the base game lilys into my new mesh, will I keep the fish then? And even can I do that, with credit given to your animation? Third, I did follow your tuts on youtube but I got a question, if I create a new mesh for a fountain and I want to have the water flown other then the original basegame mesh (the fish fountain for example) is that posable in the way you did as the toilet and bin?
Sorry if my english its a bit bad. But I hope you understand what I'm trying to say

Hi Alanore!
I think if you clone this lilies and only change the mesh, it will still have the animation. I didn't made this animation myself by the way, it's already in game. I used the fishing pond tuning to get the animated fish to appear. So if you have a totally other mesh, you can just use my tutorial: "How to make a tuning mod the easy way" You only have to copy paste the tuning and tuningID of the fish pond.

I don't know anything about working with custom/selfmade animations and I don't think it's very easy too to change it. The toilet and bin objects are also only tuning mods, so I didn't made any of those animations myself. Changing the tuning takes care of the interaction and animations with objects. So the toilet tuning includes the peeing animation and that was just exact right for that type of bin.

Hope this answers your question a bit?

I will try and find out when I'm done with my curent thing I'm working on. I have seen the tut, it realy do look easy so 'easy way' isnt such a bad name XD However is there a list of codes like you had the code for the toilet and bin, so the exact object appears of what I was looking for, I still type "toilet" to let all toilets to show (as example).

I dont want to start and make self made animations, i'm to lazy for that, I ment like the fish fountain did let the water flow in a bow, if I make a new mesh as fountain can i place the animation of 1 of the other fountains (the ones without a statue unlike the fish fountain) like you did explane in your tutorials.

You can use the name of the object in your game. So if you want a specific toilet, wright that name of the toilet in-game somewhere and then paste it into the searchbar of The Sims 4 Studio to find that exact toilet. I use the codes in my tutorial instead of the names as these codes are the same for everyone and the names are in your own language.

I don't know about the fountain animations, you just have to test it out yourself.

Hello, Bakie. Thanks again for this wonderful creation. Just to let you know, fish can been seen on lower levels without any camera trickery. Check out what I did here to have this effect of fully visible fish all the time. http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=564595

Your creation sets it off to great effect and I just cannot thank you enough.

That's a very nice looking alien house! Must have took a lot of time building that!
Cool that you could use my creation in it too, it looks really nice!

Hi, Bakie. I posted a pic here a while ago but I forgot to explain how it's possible to have these wonderful animated fish appear above and below the water on both levels. Silly me.

Step one, make sure bb.moveobjects cheat is active.
Step two, on the lower level (at the bottom of the swimming pool) buy an animated fish waterlily.
Step three, hit the 9 key until the waterlily is raised to the top of the water. (Using the waterlily's green footprint against the walls of the pool is a fantastic guide for the exact height of the water's surface.)
And that's it. When down below you still see the fish, and when up above on the next level, you still see the jumping fish and waterlily. No need to mess around with tab key or camera tricks. Essentially the waterlily plant still belongs to the lower level, it just doesn't look like it any more since the cheat was used to raise it.

That's a very clever way to solve the problem of not seeing the fish swim in the water on the same level. Thanks for this tip! I will add it as an annotation in the video with all credit to you of course.
I was already thinking about how that was managed Ow, I just tried that link again and it didn't work anymore? Is it removed?

Yeah, I had a few problems with CC that were just messing up the lot. Some CC stuff was breaking the game, and also another CC creator pulled their stuff and didn't want to share it any more. So I then removed the lot. I'll probably get round to building something similar again, I just have to be a bit more selective about the CC I use.

Hello Bakie. Love the mod.
Do you think that you can release a version where the lilies are invisible and only the fish are visible with all of their animations?
