This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

For the actual effect in motion, more info and some example scenes, please click this Youtube Video Link:
Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: Animated - Jumping Frog

This file has been UPDATED on 26-08-2021 with the following things:
- Makes the item to appear in the Pond VFX section of Build Mode
- Updates on the object's title + description.
- Update to object's thumbnail. It now has a green background color, so you can easily see which objects are water or terrain objects,
- Object's price has been changed to 3 simoleons.

Please RE-DOWNLOAD and delete the old files!

Animated - Placeable Amphibian - Jumping Frog
First of all, I know it's a bit late, but as this is my first mod in 2020: I want to wish everybody a very happy new year! Let it be an awesome year in whatever way you want it to be!
About the object, just as a lot of my other animated animal objects, the object itself is invisible and will repeatedly spawn an effect each few in-game minutes.
The effect that spawns this time, is that of a jumping and eventually swimming frog.
As this effect, that came with the Realm of Magic patch, is probably used somewhere in Glimmerbrook on sloped terrain, you will notice that after placement the object will spawn a bit above ground. With each jump the frog makes, it will get closer to the ground though. The final jump starts on the terrain.
If you want to camouflage the points where it doesn't hit the ground, it can be best done by placing some lower-flowerbeds like on my second image.
To see the eventual effect in motion with use of those flowerbeds, please take a look at my video. More example scenes can be found in there too.

For the people wondering how to replace or delete invisible objects, just hover your mouse over the place where the effects starts (Where you placed the object) and a grabbing hand will appear. You can now pick it up and replace it or press the delete key to delete the object.

Object information:
This mod only requires the Base Game.
It's a Standalone object, so it won't override any other objects in game.
