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:

Animated - Placeable Insects - Bee Swarm
This invisible object spawns a swarm of bees. After placement in Build mode, go to live mode to see the bees.
For the people having the Outdoor Retreat Game Pack, there's an extra interaction for your Sims attached to this object.

By hovering over the object, and clicking the interaction symbol, a 'catch bees' interaction will appear.
Your Sim can now try to catch a few of them. If done successfully, a notification text in the upper right corner will say that the caught bees can now be found in your Sim's inventory (inside a terrarium).
Your Sim can also fail into catching bees by getting stung by one of them. This will result in a 'stung by bee' buff which gives an uncomfortable mood that will last for 3 hours.

Besides the possibility of placing them onto the ground, they're also placeable on all deco slot sizes. You can for example make a swarm of bees to hover above food left overs on a picknick table.
To see the swarm of bees in motion and examples of the things mentioned above, take a look at the video!

Object information:
This mod requires the Base Game for a swarm of bees only and requires the Outdoor Retreat Game Pack for the catch interaction to work.
It's a Standalone object, so it won't override any other objects in game.
To easily find it, type 'Swarm' into the search bar.
You can also find it by going to the Decoration's Misc section.
It can be recognized by my "BakieGaming" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.
The costs are: 3 Simoleons

Game Requirements:
Outdoor Retreat Game Pack for the catch interaction to work.

Game Version:
