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 of the walking AND swimming duck + ducklings, 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 + Ducklings effect (it's only 3:38 minutes long)



UPDATED on 6 feb 2020
Fixed a few problems with shadows seeing through and added Repeat Placement for all swatches, not only the first one.
You only need the second file, so delete the old file from your mods folder if you already had that one.


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

This time I added the effect of a wild duck + ducklings.
This object will have 2 versions, one will be for placement on terrain and one will be for placement on water. As you may already expect, the terrain one will have walking ducks and the water version swimming!
To see these effect in motion and learn how to use it, I recommend watching my video at the top of this page. The YouTube video description will also have a list of other mods made by me which can be perfectly combined with this one.

Object information:
This mod is Base Game Compatible.
The Water reeds + Ducklings effect mod, is a standalone object, so it won't overwrite any other objects in game.
You can find the Water reeds + Ducklings effect in Build mode > Fountain > Fountain decoration OR type Ducklings 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 + Ducklings effect is: 150 Simoleons

Game Requirements:
Base Game Compatible

Game Version:
Tested with gameversion: 1.35.10.1010

I Hope you like it and will give me some credit if used in screenshots or videos!

Besides giving me credit and linking back to this page, I would appreciate it if you could add my video too instead of (only) the thumbnail.

Additional Credits:
Thanks to the Sims 4 Studio
Thanks Adobe for making Photoshop

Haha, yeah ducklings looking EXACT the same as their parent, would be really cute! I don't think EA took the time looking at their City pond or something to see they look a tiny bit different then their parents after hatching :P

I love all these environment enhancing mods! Would animated swimming pool-friendly fishes be something you'd consider? I can imagine people making some cool sets/aquariums with something like that!

Yes, I'm actually already kind of working on it, but I have multiple mods in the works as always. So a lot of unfinished ones too
