This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

If you want to see the effect and interaction added to this object, get some more info and see some tips and tricks on how to use this item, please watch my Youtube Video:
Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: Water reeds + Dragonflies effect (it's only 4:14 minutes long)

This file has been UPDATED on 21-08-2021 with the following things:
- Makes the item to appear in the Pond Item + Pond VFX sections of Build Mode
- Placeable on ponds.
- Updates on the object's title + description.
- Object's price has been changed to 15 simoleons, so they will appear behind EA's water reed objects.
- Catch dragonflies interaction has been restored

Please RE-DOWNLOAD and delete the old files!

Water reeds + Dragonflies effect (Animated)
This is my second mod in a series of mods which all will use the same object, but will have another effect added to it.
By using all these different objects/effects, you can create some awesome looking custom ponds.

This time I added the effect of dragonflies, but that's not the only thing I added. If you have the Outdoor Retreat Expansion Pack, then you will also be able to catch dragonflies.
I did make some changes compared to catching insects in Granite Falls though, if you want to know what exactly, then go watch that video!
If you have the Seasons Pack, the dragonflies might disappear during certain weather conditions like rain and snow.
To see the actual effect and interaction and learn how to use it, I recommend watching my video at the top of this page. Doing so, you will also get some tips and tricks on how to use the object when only using it for decoration.

Object information:
This mod is Base game Compatible as for the object + Effect. If you want to be able to use the Catch dragonflies interaction, you will need the Outdoor Retreat EP.
The Water reeds + Dragonflies effect mod, is a standalone object, so it won't overwrite any other objects in game.
You can find the Water reeds + Dragonflies effect in Build mode > Fountain > Fountain decoration OR type Dragonflies into the search bar.
You can recognize this mod by my "BakieGaming" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.
The costs for the Water reeds + Dragonflies effect are: 150 Simoleons
