Sailboat Effect Mesh Location?
Hey, I'm looking to replace the sailboat effect, but I can't seem to find it in the GameData files (though I was able to find its texture files).

Any idea how I might be able to find it?

I have this same exact issue with my butterfly replacement! Can't seem to find the mesh, even with checking the VXPY...Will let you know if I found something.

Some of the effects simply don't seem to be labelled, unfortunately...

perhaps, you may find the key inside one of those CLIP animation files, because most of them have effect triggers.

How would I open up the animations?

You need to select the "clip" file and look for the correct animation you need to replace.

okay so just to clarify if i'm on the right path here myself @douglasveiga, Are these FNV32 hashes for the instance? Or the 'meshes name' that is within the MLOD file?

@Lyralei
Not exactly.
"EffectNameHash" references an effect instance inside the "Sims3Effects" resource (_SWF), you may find it inside the "DeltaBuild0" package.

To be honest, I know where it is but I don't know any tool to edit or create new effects so I guess you may find a plain binary data.
