What Are Elements In The Sims 4?

A screenshot shows a completed elements collection in a Sim's inventory.

Elements are collectible materials that can be displayed or sold by Sims. Each element varies in rarity, appearance, and worth. Found in metals and crystals, elements are a natural wonder in the world of the Sims.

They give off a Focused aura when displayed, making them a great addition to any study, office, or lab!

How To Get Elements

A feminine Sim with red hair uses mining tools to extract materials from a rock.

Completing the elements collection can take a while, but actually gathering the materials is simple enough. Your Sim will need to explore various neighborhoods to find and collect metals and crystals. As they explore, your Sim will come across rock formations with little specks of color.

You’re more likely to find rare elements in hidden lots such as the Forgotten Grotto, Sixam, and the Deep Woods.

Command your Sim to mine the rock, and watch to see if they find anything! If they do, a notification box will pop up in the upper right corner, telling you what was inside the rock. Different metals and crystals appear in the same area, so don’t hesitate to search an area twice.

If your Sim finds a material, you can send it to the Geo Council. The Geo Council will analyze it to see what element it contains and then send the element to your doorstep.

With the Get To Work expansion pack, scientists can analyze elements themselves. You can also ask your colleagues to give you metals or explore the lab lot to find them laying around.
