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.

If you want to have a better view on the animation of this object and get some more info and examples on how to use this mod, please watch my Youtube Video:
Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: Animated Water Shimmering (it's only 1:40 minutes long)

This file has been UPDATED on 27-08-2021 with the following things:
- Makes the item to appear in the Pond VFX section in Build Mode.
- Placeable on ponds.
- Updates on the object's title + description.
- Object's price has been changed to 50 simoleons.

Please RE-DOWNLOAD and delete the old files!

Animated Water Shimmering
This water shimmering could normally only be seen on the lakes and rivers in The Sims 4 neighbourhoods and in the Secret Area, Forgotten Grotto ... Until now!
Add this invisible object to your pools, fountains and custom ponds and enjoy the effect of light reflections on the water surface.
As it is a bit difficult to see this effect on screenshots, I recommend watching my video at the top of this page too.

Object information:
No Expansion Packs required.
It's a standalone object, so it won't overwrite any other objects in game.
You can find these Animated Water Shimmering objects under Built mode > Fountain > Fountain Decoration OR type Shimmering into the search bar.
You can recognize it by my "BG logo" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.
The cost are: 10 Simoleons

Game Requirements:
The Sims 4 Base Game

Game Version:
Tested with gameversion:

I Hope you like it and will give me some credit if used in screenshots or videos!

Besides giving me credit and linking back to this page, I would appreciate it if you could add my video too instead of (only) the thumbnail.
