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.

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

Hi Reitanna,

I'm planning to make some animated fish mods, but I don't know when they will be made and uploaded.
Untill then, you can use The Sims 4 Effect Player, for which I have some videos on my YouTube Channel too. My next episode should go over all Fish effects.. I just REALLY need to make that episode soon, but I haven't come to that point yet. (I'm sorry about that)

I don't know if your familiar with The Sims 4 Effect Player, but if not, I made a small Intro video about it in which I show you how it works. It can be found right here:
The Sims 4 Effect Player: Intro/How does it work
In the video description you can find a link to all episodes I made untill now.

Hope it will help you a little bit already, otherwise just remind me about making the fish episode on YouTube :P
Have a great weekend!

This is amazing, I love it!
I'm just wondering if I misunderstood, but when I place this in a swimming pool, I only see the fish jumping, I never see them swimming beneath the surface.
Same with ponds. I only see them jumping.

Hi!
When looking from above in a swimming pool, you should also see them swim underwater just like in my YouTube video. It may take some time before the first ones appear, but after that the individual fishes will dissapear and re-appear continuesly.

Hello jmh,
Thank you very much! Good to hear you like those animal mods as much more are coming (some in-the-works, others just the ideas)
I just took a look in the gallery I saw all the buildings you used my Alphabet mod on, it looks great! I really like buildings like "The Blacksmith". The letters really seem to fit well on that building. Also on the Western themes by the way!
Would be cool for both those themes to have real horses one day in game. We can only hope!

Heya Bakie, I love this mod so much and have been using it for quite a while. However, now I've made a beach lot with mermaids and stuff, but I still want fishes jumping out of the 'sea' only it does not seem right to have waterlilies in the ocean. Could you make a version without waterlilies but just the fish animation? I would be very grateful

Hello Amy, I totally understand why you won't use the waterlilies on your beach lot! That DOES look a bit weird :P
As for now I don't have any plans yet for that, but I will add it to the list as I do have other plans with fishes. Not sure when they will be released though.
You're free to send me a personal message if you think I forgot about it. It could also be that I will be making a new Effect Player episode about it. I will try to remind myself to let you know when either of those two things has happened.

Hello Bakie. Could it be that this mod is broken? I can still place the mod in fish ponds, but there are no more fish jumping as it was before. Maybe you can take a look into it when you have time, thanks.

ETA: Never mind, I fixed it myself

This is problably a problem which is caused by the latest patch which makes effects like those of the birds that flew through the neighbourhoods, to not fly straight through houses anymore. I've noticed myself too that on some lots in New Crest the fishes aren't visible anymore. Same counts for the placeable koi fish group mod. Other also mentioned problems on lots in Windenburg and Brindleton Bay. But this isn't a problem on all lots in game strangely enough..
Did you fixed you're problem on your lot or by placing it some where else?

I solved it by deleting your mod hahaha. No, of course not . Yes that is indeed true. In New Crest (on a Sims lot) is where I noticed the disfunction of your mod. Then I thought about my church which stands in Willow Creek (tagged as a museum so everyone can visit) where I also have the small *DEGUG* pond in the back and your fish mod. So I checked on it and sure enough it works there. I then deleted your fish mod from this pond to make sure, and there where still jumping fish that are naturally included in the pond (I guess). The same pond is sitting in New Crest on my private Sim lot, and NO jumping fishies there. I also tried your CC pond, but same results. Not with or without your mod. So, no clue what's going on with the fishes in different worlds. BTW, your Jungle butterflys aren't working either.

ETA: I now made a pool and set it up as a pond to see if there are any differences with your mod but no. I then added a fishing sign close to the pool so my Sim could fish, and now there are visible and jumping fish in my pool

Thanks for testing out all those stuff, I didn't know about the butterflies too, but I guess there will be more mods that don't work on certain lots. But if even the jumping fish from EA's ponds don't appear then it's certainly a problem on EA's side.

I have tested your fish mod again in a Vanilla game (kinda lol). I uploaded my house (incl. CC) from New Crest where your fish mod didn't work, and tested it in "Vanilla" game. Placed my house in New Crest again, and what do you know? - the fish mod works and the fishes from EA ponds are visible too. So it's pretty obviest that the mod conflicts with another mod. In my case I only have a few, (om's pets & Beer Narwhal mod, andrew's craftables script mod, UI-Cheat mod by weerbesu, the Slow-Dance mod, your pond, invisible fence, walk through grass, and your animated birds, butterflys and fish mods. Now we have to figure out which one of the mods causing the fish spawner to stop working.

edit: All my tests by taking out one mod after another sadly leads to no results.
When I first placed the house from the gallery the fishes were visible, and your mod worked, but on the second lot load the fish spawner stopped working and so are the the EA fish spawning in pond. You would think that there is a mod conflict, but after taking out each by each, nothing changed. I then bulldozed the lot and placed it again, and the fish were visible again, but again on the second lot load they stopped.
So, you may be right. Must be on EA's side. I just wanted to make sure to do a few more tests before writing a bug report.

I've totally missed this message from you, I'm sorry I've not responded anymore.
The only thing I know for effects not to spawn a second time might be having something to do with how the game uses those effects. For example, my Bird Fountain + bird effects also stops working when reloaded a second time. I think this has something to do with the fact that the birds from the bird feeder only come when the feeder is full or something? If you delete the item and place it again, it works again for the time playing.
That doesn't explain why EA's fishing pond stops working after reloading though as those fish should jump always and not only when interacting with it..
