This file has been UPDATED on 21-08-2021 with the following things:
- Makes the items to appear in the Pond VFX section of Build Mode
- Placeable on ponds.
- Updates on the object's title + description.
- Object's price has been changed to 20 simoleons, so they will appear behind EA's duck vfx objects.

Animated - Placeable Birds - Wild Duck (+ Ducklings)
Where my former mod with the Water Reed object and ducks effects were especially useful in larger natural ponds, this time even the smallest 2x2 ponds can have wild ducks and/or ducklings swimming in them.
Like a lot of my other placeable animal mods, the 3 objects theirselfs are invisible, but after placement and going into live mode, the actual effect will appear.
In this case there're 3 effects to choose from:
- An Adult Wild Duck, just floating on the same place but with water ripples around it and moving feet under the water surface (Only visible in pond objects from the game like the fishing hole or denizen pond).
- An Adult Wild Duck + Ducklings (Same adult duck), but with either 3 or 4 ducklings swimming around in 'circles' near the adult duck.
- Only the 3 or 4 ducklings swimming around in 'circles'.

All objects can only be placed on water surfaces from pools and fountains. If you want to place them on the in-game ponds you need to use the moveobjects on cheat.
For more information and examples about all of the things mentioned above and to see the effects in motion, click the video link above!
