Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: Animated - Placeable Fish - Pack 1

I don't know why I didn't added this information here before, but for this mod to work you need the Get Famous expansion pack. In the tuning I used a part of a tuning with came with this pack, so without the pack, the tuning can't be read either.

This file has been UPDATED on 21-08-2021 with the following things:
- Makes the item to appear in the Pond VFX section of Build Mode
- Placeable in ponds.
- Updates on the Object's Title + description.
- Object's price has been changed to 4 simoleons, After updating all mods, all pond vfx can be found in front of the EA ones, all terrain vfx can be found in front of my pond vfx.

EXTRA UPDATE 21-08-2021: Blue thumbnail-background color added. Makes it easier to see what's pond related and what's not.
EXTRA UPDATE 09-03-2022: Fixes the way they work in combination with the MOO cheat. When raising the objects and trying to raise them again, objects would snap back to the default height. This has now been fixed so the object will stay at it's height when moving it a second time.
Please RE-DOWNLOAD and delete the old files!

Animated - Placeable Fish - Pack 1
Something my oceans and aquariums were still missing, were some small fish to add more life to these areas.
So that's why I proudly present to you, my first Animated Placeable Fish Pack!

As the game has more then 50 fish species at the moment and making these new kind of animated fish mods takes more time to make then other animated animal mods, this first pack will contain 12 different fish species:
Angelfish, Anglerfish, Bass, Batfish, Betta, Catfish, Eel, Goldfish, Exotic Goldfish, Spooky Gummy fish, Spooky Bones fish and Guppy.

For all of these objects counts that by using a custom option menu (Interaction), you can change the default amount of 3 fish to either 1 fish, 1 baby fish, 5 fish, 8 fish or no fish at all.
The setting for spawning no fish at all can be useful if your game starts to lag during video recording, but you don't want to delete all carefully placed objects. Disabling just a few can already do a lot about the lagging.
When leaving your lot or the entire game, all objects will reset to spawning 3 fish again. This makes it easier to find them back then seeing none or just one.

As for the objects spawning the fish effects, all will have two swatches to choose from. The first one will be a floor decal showing the particular fish that will be spawned after placing the object.
The second swatch will make the object to become invisible.
When placing these objects in the ocean, they will become invisible all by itself and the interactions will still work when hovering your mouse over them.
Placing these objects in Pool Aquariums only makes the objects to become invisible when looking from above the water surface or looking from behind glass. Using the Option Menu isn't possible inside of the Pool Aquarium as the game thinks you want your Sim to go swim to that spot. There fore, activate the desired amount of fish outside of the pool, before placing it in!
The invisible objects (second swatch) are especially useful if you made an Empty Room Aquarium as then the floor decal will behave like normal objects do in a room and thus won't become invisible.
Examples of all the things mentioned above and more, can be seen in my video for which you can find a video-link right underneath the image at the top.

To be able to raise these objects out of the ground, activate the moveobjects on cheat (bb.moveobjects on) and press the number 9-key.
To lower them back into the ground, press the 0-key. Placing these objects on different heights will make it look more realistic.
As these objects will be placed underwater and our Sims need to be able to swim over them, all these objects are Walk-throughable when placed on terrain or swim-throughable in water.

Object information:

They're standalone objects, so won't override any other objects in game.
To easily find all objects at once, type "Animated Fish" into the search bar and after that click the Search tag above the results so all of them will appear in the catalog.
