Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: Animated - Placeable Birds - Pigeons (it's only 5:18 minutes long)

This file has been UPDATED on 25-12-2021 with the following things:
- They can now be found in the Pond VFX section in build mode.
- Object's title have been updated with an invisible 'Bakie' Search-tag in the title.
This item can now also be found by typing bird, birds, and pigeons into the search bar.
- Object's descriptions have been updated to new format.
- Object Thumbnails have been updated with (Animated) text adjustments.
- Object Thumbnails have been updated with a light green background color. This makes it more clear in the Pond VFX section that this object has to be placed on terrain. It can be used in multiple worlds.
- Price has been changed for better placement in the Pond VFX section.

- Placeable on Pond Water Surfaces.
WHY: Despite the fact that this animal isn't a water animal, I still enabled the 'placeable on water surfaces' option.
The reason for this, is because this makes it easier to raise it to something hanging above the water surface like rocks or tropical vines. It's also easier to place it onto floating things like logs or to rocks or branches sticking out of the water.
- Placeable on slopes, which makes it easier to place it above uneven (pond/ocean) floors.

Animated - Placeable Birds - Pigeons
A while back I made some animated placeable seagulls, but as they don't fit a park scene for example, this time I will bring you some animate placeable pigeons instead!
You can choose between 3 versions, each with their own thumbnail in the catalog. One will spawn a single pigeon, one will spawn 3 pigeons in a row and the other 5 pigeons in a row.
As almost all my Placeable animal mods, the object itself is invisible but the effect will spawn immediately after placing.
Be aware though, that in between 20.00PM and 06.00AM the pigeons won't be visible. They will make pigeon sounds during that time.

This object is also placeable on all sized deco slots like on the ones I added to my Cats & Dogs Friendship Fountain for example, but also on Maxis objects like tables.
As a bonus I also added 7 small deco slots to one of the Base Game outdoor benches. (Thumbnail) This bench is only downloadable on YouTube Channel though.
You can also place them onto your roof. You might need to adjust the roof's height after that though, for a detailed explaination, take a look at the video.

Object information:
This mod is Base Game Compatible.
It's a standalone object, so it won't override any other objects in game.
You can find it in Build mode > Pond VFX OR type Pigeon into the search bar.
You can recognize it by my "BakieGaming" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.
The cost are: 3 Simoleons each.
