Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: Animated - Placeable Fish - Sharks (it's only 6:08 minutes long)

This file has been UPDATED on 05-11-2021 with the following things:
- It can now be found in the Pond VFX section in build mode.
- Object's title has been updated with 'Bakie' in front of the title.
- Object's description has been updated to new format.
- Object's Thumbnail has been updated with (Animated) text adjustments.
- Object's Thumbnail has been updated with a blue background color. This makes it more clear in the Pond VFX section that this object has to be placed into water.
- Price has been changed for better placement in the Pond VFX section behind smaller fish.

- Placeable on Pond water surfaces.
- Placeable on slopes, which makes it easier to place them near the edge of ponds. Be aware that you won't see them when placed above too shallow water.
- Sims are still able to swim through the sharks when placed in oceans or swimming pools. Some sharks swim low enough to swim over them. You can use my invisible fence if you don't want them to swim through the animals OR by raising the object after placing it on swimming pool floors (MOO cheat).

- Footprint changed from 1x1 to 2x2 for easy pickup.

Animated - Placeable Fish - Sharks
One of the first mod ideas I had after seeing some sneak peeks of the Get Famous Expansion Pack, was making an Animated Placeable Fish - Sharks version!
So here it is! Perfect for adding more realism to your beaches or for making a nice Shark Aquarium.

This objects, just as most of my animated placeable animal objects, is totally invisible.
After placing the object, you won't see the sharks until going into live mode.
You can choose between 8 different swatches, which won't give you other recolors, but will give you different formations of sharks.
Swatch 1-4 will each have one single shark, but on a different height. Swatch 5+6 will each have 2 sharks swimming on different heights and the last two swatches will have 3 sharks swimming on different heights.
As swatch 1-4 all have only one shark, you can use those to create your own group of sharks too like can be seen in the video. You also need to watch it to see the actual effect in motion and get some more in depth examples of how to use them on both a beach/sea lot as in an aquarium.
(Also because this is a bit difficult to explain in only text, I just tried it, but failed)

Important note: You can't use the recolor tool on this item to change swatches, as each swatch uses a different tuning.
You need to pick them right out of the catalog. For picking them up after placing, move the mouse over the area where you placed it until the grabbing hand appear. You can also use the eyedropper tool and wait for the name of the mod to appear, then switch to the grab tool (H) and pick it up/delete it.
