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.
Hello everyone,

here's little something that took me a year to finish - an animated koi carp.
No bells and whistles - it just drifts slowly back and forth.

Koi Fish costs 1800 S,
you'll find it in
Buy Mode/General/Miscellaneous

It could be an animal or a robot, I couldn't make up my mind - you decide.


After animation starts playing in live mode, fish will move down
- water needs to be around one tile deep.

If you place the koi directly in a shallow pond, or on the ground, it will disappear.
Don't do that, use OMSPs. I recommend shiftable shelves by SilentLucidity
Tip:
To avoid synchronised swimming effect,
let animation play for a few seconds before you add another fish to the pond.

Enjoy



I tried making more complex animations, none worked well in the game (unexpected 360 flips),
so I decided to settle for this one. I hope it looks decent enough.
I'm not touching it again



I've generated random GUID for this item

Remember to check if this new mesh shows up in your game.
