Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: Animated - Rock + Surf & Waves Effect (it's only 4:39 minutes long)

This file has been UPDATED on 21-11-2021 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 Thumbnail has been updated with (Animated) text adjustments.
- Object Thumbnail has been updated with a beachy background color. This makes it more clear in the Pond VFX section that this object looks best when placed on beaches.
- Price has been changed for better placement in the Pond VFX section next to some of my other beach vfx mods.

- Placeable on Pond and (Shallow) Ocean Water Surfaces.
- Placeable on slopes, which makes it easier to place it above uneven pond/ocean floors.

You might need to adjust the rock's height (MOO cheat) if the waves aren't visible on the beach. When the beach itself is higher then the water surface, the waves will be spawned underneath the terrain. After raising the rock, fill up the empty space underneath it with other rocks, so it doesn't float in mid-air.

- Removed from Rock category as it always has the VFX attached to it, no switch on/off interaction.
Please RE-DOWNLOAD and delete the old files!

Animated - Rock + Surf & Waves Effect

More stuff to add realism to your beaches in game!
This time it's a rock that can be placed both on the water surface as on terrain and will spawn either a Surf effect or a Surf and Waves effect for an infinite time.
The rock I used is the same one as I once made as Bonus Object for one of my other mods. What I've added extra is 3 new recolors besides the 5 default ones.
If you want to have the other default rocks with these same additional recolors too, take a look at the video description on YouTube.
Before you do that, take a look at the video too if you're curious how the surf and waves animations look in game.
If you don't like to watch my videos, simply take a look at the images for this object.

An important thing to mention abouth this object, is that you can't use the Recolor Tool to switch from one effect to the other.
The recolor tool only works for switching rock colors. To switch effect, go into build mode and pick the right swatch.
