13 NEW GUIDES ADDED
Many of you have been asking how I spawned collectibles for the guides, so this post contains instructions on how to do it yourself. Read the following warnings/cautions before attempting to spawn anything in game.
Spawning collectibles is done at your own risk.
This list is here for informational purposes only. SimsVIP and TwistedMexican do not assume any liability should spawning objects damage your game.
Save your active games and Sims 4 Folder BEFORE attempting to spawn anything.
Spawning collectibles is best done on an empty lot. Having a full lot will sometimes spawn the objects outside the lot, which cannot be easily removed.
Collectibles usually spawn in the center of the lot. Some collectibles spawn on top of each other.
Spawned collectibles may not sell via the inventory panel. Try Build/Buy Mode.
Sometimes a collection will show as “complete” with a collectible’s image missing. Save your game, exit to the main menu, and load the game again to fix the issue.
Spawned items will not transfer with your Sims if you move them to a new lot.
You may encounter other random bugs with the objects you spawn.
I’d like to note that I have not personally experienced any game breaking issues with spawning, but the warnings have to be in place regardless. Sometimes things do go wrong.
Each week we will will compile a list of mods that have been released to help make your gaming experience more pleasant and unique. Be sure to use The Sims 4 Mods Category Tag for future reference.
Please note that installing 3rd party content may cause problems with your game. It is a good idea to properly research the use of mods and custom content before putting them into your game.
While EA unofficially supports the modding community, they will not be held liable should any 3rd party content damage your PC or game.

Always remember to remove mods and custom content before updating your game
I have put up pages with all 13 collections and collectibles. Please note that I am still working on the “Mini Guide” and “How/Where To Find” portions of 5 of these lists, as well as some of the related skills.
Quick note: I spawned a many of the collectibles in order to create the lists. There are some things not working in game and some items you will not be able to collect. I’ve been reporting my findings to the Gurus to help them quickly pin point the issues, so hopefully they are fixed soon.
• Grafting is broken which makes Dragonfruit and Birds of Paradise bugged. Same with the Cowplant berry, but there are other ways to collect it.
• The Space Rocks Collection isn’t awarding the collection plaque
• Plaintains are a collectible, but not part of the gardening collection set
• Bonsai Buds are the “duplicate” blackberry photo in the gardening collection, but we do not yet know if these were meant to be an actual collectible. (Even though they complete the Gardening Collection)
