Curious about the full waves effects in motion and some more info and example scenes, please click this Youtube Video Link:
Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: Animated - Buoy + Waves Effects (it's only 5:09 minutes long)

These files have been UPDATED on 27-03-2022 with the following things:
- It can now be found in the Pond VFX section in build mode.
- Object's title has been updated with an invisible 'Bakie' Search-tag in the title.
• Buoy + Waves object can now also be found by typing Buoy, Wave, Waves or Ocean into the search bar.
- Object's description has been updated to new format.
- Object Thumbnail has been updated with image and text adjustments.
- Object Thumbnail has been updated with a blue (water) background color. This makes it more clear in the Pond VFX section that this object needs to be placed on water.
- Prices have been changed for better placement in the Pond VFX section.

- This update does NOT make these objects to be placeable on pond water surfaces. Whenever this is possible with Studio, I will add this too.
- Placeable on slopes, which makes it easier to place it above uneven ocean floors.
- Placeable through other objects, which makes them placeable above or in between (water) plants for example, without using cheats.

- Buoy + Waves can't be placed on slots anymore (This looks strange when there're water ripples around it).
Please RE-DOWNLOAD and delete the old file!

Animated - Animated - Buoy + Waves Effects
More Waves for your beaches!
Place this unlocked buoy onto your water surfaces and activate it with an On/Off interaction to see one of the three possible waves effects.
To choose which effect you want to use on your lot, you can choose between 15 color swatches divided into 3 groups of 5 recolors. Each group of 5 recolors contains one single effect that will be repeated for an infnite time after activation or until you switch it off again.
The first effect is that of a small wave, the second is a much larger one just as the third one. For those last two I recomment to only activate one on your lot as they're quite big.
Curious how these waves effects will look in your game? Then take a look at the video to see them in motion.
I've also added some screenshots here with all 5 buoy recolors and the images from the thumbnail a bit bigger.

An important thing to mention abouth this object, is that you can't use the Recolor Tool to switch from one effect to the other.
The recolor tool only works for switching buoy colors. To switch effect, go into build mode and pick the right swatch.
