Animated - Seaweed + Sandpipers
The seagulls on the beach and in the air, are not the only animals that you can encounter by visiting Brindleton Bay.
While walking along the beach there are also these cute groups of Sandpipers that run around on their tiny legs from one side to the other.
As I like to have these birds on my own beach lots too, I thought let's make a mod for it!
Instead of making it into an invisible mod, I added the effect with an on/off switch to the base game large and small piles of seaweed. This way no additional Expansion Packs are required for this mod to work.
If you do have the Cats and Dogs Expansion pack, your pets will also be able to play and rummage into these piles of seaweed.
To see these interactions your pets can have with these objects, the actual animation of the Sandpipers and get some more info, click the video link above.
