Animated - Hole in Wall + Bats Effect
As it's almost Halloween, I thought let's make something that people might want to use in their Halloween builds.
So for this week, you can download my Hole in Wall + Bats Effect Wall Decals. Just as some of my other mods, this mod will have an On/Off switch so you can decide for yourself when to activate the Bats effect. Just hover your mouse over the object until an interaction symbol appears, click it and choose switch on or something simular in your own language.
Without activating it, you can also use them for making it look like as if there're holes in the wall of abandonned houses for example.
Besides a version for which you will need the Vampires Game Pack, I also included a Base Game Compatible one.

The wall decals that require the Vampires Game Pack come in 3 different shapes.
The wall decals that are Base Game Compatible come in 2 different shapes.
Each shape will have 2 different hole colors to choose from. One is Black and the other one Dark Gray. (Black for at night, Dark Gray for at daytime for example)
If you want to see the effect of the flying bats in motion, you can take a look at my YouTube video for which you will find a link at the top of this page below the image.

Object information:
These mods require the BaseGame and/or Vampires Game Pack.(This package file name ends with "VampiresGP")
They're standalone objects, so they won't override any other objects in game.

You can also recognize them by my "BakieGaming" icon in the lower right corner of the thumbnail.

Custom Content used in the Thumbnail:
Animated - Broken Glass Wall Decal + Water Effect (On/Off Switch)

The house is called "Haunted House" and is made by SweetSorrowSims.
It should be available on the Gallery in-game, but for some reason I can't find anything made by her anymore, at least not when using the "search for ID-name" function in the gallery.

I Hope you like these Animated Hole in Wall + Bats Effect 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 instead of (only) the thumbnail.
