Animated - Flamingo + Water Ripple Effect
As someone who loves birds, I've got to love the Flamingo Lawn decoration object of course, but there was something missing.. the ability to easily place them in water for example.
So I thought let's make a separate water version too. Besides making the placing more easy, I also added a water ripple effect and made an additional 7 recolors. For 2 of them I tried to make them as realistic as possible.
For the default Flamingo Lawn Object, I also made an override so it will contain all new recolors too. This way you can easily mix and match them with each other. This override is only available on YouTube.
To see the actual animation, get some more info and for a link to the default override, click the video link above.

Object information:
This object is Base Game Compatible.
It's a standalone object, so it won't override any other objects in game.
You can find it in Buy mode > Decoration > Sculptures OR type Flamingo into the search bar.
You can also recognize it by my "BakieGaming" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.
The cost are: 160 Simoleons

Game Requirements:
Base Game Compatible

Game Version:
Tested with gameversion: 1.78.58.1030

Custom Content used in Thumbnail:
- Pink Flamingo Lawn Decoration - Override - 7 Additonal Recolors (Only available on YouTube)
- Animated - Water reeds + Dragonfly effect
- Animated- Water Shimmering

I Hope you like this new water version of the deco Flamingo 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 instead of (only) the thumbnail.

Thanks to the Sims 4 Studio

You're welcome Crow! Good to hear you like those mods that much! If you ever have images to share let me know, It's always nice to see where or how people use my mods in their game.
(There might be coming a crow one day too by the way.. )

It's only the water that moves, but it makes them at least a bit more 'realistic' looking. Though the recolors make them to look better then the original ones too imo. Thanks for downloading!
