The Sims 4: Microscope Prints (Collectibles)


The Sims 4 Collectibles: Microscope Prints

To begin collecting these prints, Sims will need to purchase a Microscope. Some of the more common prints can be found by simply using the microscope, but the more uncommon and rare ones require some extra work.
Sims who level up in the Logic Skill will unlock the ability to “Collect Microscope Samples” from Crystals (Level 8 Logic Skill), Fossils (Level 7 Logic Skill), and Plants (Level 2 Logic Skill), and “Analyze” them via the microscope. The result is Microscope Prints.

Focused Emotion: Sims can “View Focused Work” on a few of the paintings and acquire the Focused Emotion


1Crystal PalaceRare§485At the crux of hard science and new age woo-woo lies the crystal. Here, we can see both the distinctive crystal geometry, revered by scientists for its electrical, optical and mechanical properties, and the glittery crystal sparkles, known for their harmonic love vibrations and aura cleansing magic.
2Leaf MeatRare§445Isn't it strange how zooming in on a fossilized leaf actually makes it look similar to a piece of steak? Are plants and animals more alike than they seem? Do leaves also feel love and fear? What does this say about veganism? Should we eat anything at all? Art raises some serious questions.
3Trace RemainsUncommon§225Ever just know something in your bones? That's because the skeleton can act as an antennae, transmitting info to the brain. In this dinosaur fossil, we see the haunting conduits where bone instinct may have cried out. "Run! METEOR!" Dinosaurs had brains the size of peas. That's why they all died. Enjoy your painting.
4Blemish BlossomUncommon§220This artwork chronicles the awkward adolescent stage of plant cell development, where they are tormented by embarrassing acne. Absorbing enough rainwater can really help, and fortunately, a cell can just divide to create its own prom date.
5Cell BlockUncommon§220Look at the precision fit of these bright cells. No wonder they're called the "building blocks of life." In fact, the only difference between toy blocks and living cells is that organisms are not assembled by children. (Except for the platypus; that was built by a third grader named Frank.)
6FallingUncommon§215Evoking all the colors of autumn, this mineral painting represents the diminished glow of youth, and the twilight years of life, when all hope is gone, and the path we have taken slides toward its eventual tear-filled end. Hang it in the breakfast nook or the baby's nursery!
7HooplanktonCommon§100This compelling artwork captures the plankton hula hoop performance team mid-rehearsal, for a number that will sink into obscurity when, en route to a gig, the entire team is eaten by a turtle.
8Rhapsody in BlueCommon§95Don't have a green thumb? No problem. Enjoy plants at the cellular level, where they're actually blue--and in art form, where they require no water, sunlight or "Please don't leave me!" pep talks.
9Party in PinkCommon§115Magnification reveals interesting facts about microorganisms, such as their preference for bubble gum pink décor and festive streamers hung in their living rooms, all year round. If life on earth were a giant party, microorganisms were the first to arrive, and as this painting reveals, they may be the last to leave!
10Psychedelic RockCommon§110If there's one thing we've learned through microscopic explorations into the mineral world it's this: Rocks sure are trippy! Here we have Dunite, magnified fifty zillion percent and captured in bright tempera. Hang it in a college dorm room!
11Snow FightCommon§110They say each snowflake is unique. Up close, these snow crystals, secure in their individual flakiness, appear to be gathering around one deformed snow pyramid, who they will shortly beat up for being TOO different. As this painting reveals, snow is not as gentle as it seems.
12The DrifterCommon§105Never fall in love with a plankton. Flowing wherever the current takes them, they are total vagabonds. Here's one such plankton, dancing with groupies after a night playing electric guitar with the Bacteria Band. Fortunately this moment was captured in art. We'll never see him again.
