Subtle animations

Prev1
Just the waste bobbing up and down in the river and Blinky popping his head above water. The waves on the seaport were mentioned a couple of days ago and the buildings when occupied have their own animations...

    Have seen these ones from the very beginning, along with prison spot-lights, cooling-tower steam etc The ones I mention above I've only just noticed recently when I was looking to strip my SF of animations during the 'lag-phase'. The one with the school flag was driving me crazy as I saw it flapping then next time I checked it wasn't... then it was... then it wasnt!! lol

    Hardly surprising, size of his fat * lol I've not seen that one, maybe its more evident on a tablet than iphone, which I use... things are so much better on tablet, you can see a lot more detail :D

    Speaking of these, I wish they'd kept the easter animations like the hummingbirds etc. It seems like a lot of effort was put in just to use them for a month!

    The one I only recently noticed was the satellite dish moving back and forth very slowly on Channel 6 when it's broadcasting. As tells go, that's about as subtle as it gets because it's easy to miss.

    A lot of the buildings have animation when a character is inside performing a task. For example, a rat runs around on the roof of Moe's if someone is drinking inside and front lawn sprinklers turn on at Flanders house.

    Yeah, I love this animation as well. One reason I never complete the quest for Chester so I can have characters donate blood for 8 hours at Bloodmobile and have that animation going on.

    Off the top of my head

    Barney ballon burps, Duff blimp electronic display, silhoettes seen through Town Hall / Motel windows, Duff brewery's chimneys puff smoke and guy on sofa decoration follows a circular track under the clock.

    I've never had a task to send anyone to the blood mobile, do you need Chester for it?

    Every time I have a new decoration or building I tap on it, often times it has either a sound, an animation or both.

    Couple more I've noticed:
    Three Eyed Sushi at SP - the fish's eyes blink in sequence.
    Legitimate Businessman's Club - the streetlight flickers when occupied.
