The Sims 4: Fossils (Collectibles)


The Sims 4 Collectibles: Fossils

Fossils are not a collectible you will find around town. Instead, when Sims dig up rocks in the ground, they’ll sometimes end up finding limestone. With the Limestone in their inventory Sims can extract the fossils directly from the stone. Not all fossils are extracted successfully though. They also break!

❗ Sims can also find the rare fossils by exploring space. Build a rocketship and head to the skies.

Sims who have a Level 5 Logic Skill or higher can “Collect” a sample from fossils. Inspect the sample using the in game microscope, and receive a special Microscope Print to place on the wall.

1Fossilized Alien SkullRare§250This could be the evidence needed to confirm that there are other forms of life in the universe!! Or it could be papier mache -- science has no way of telling!
2Pre-Pre-Pre Sim HeadRare§225Australosimicus afarensis, or "Pre-Pre-Pre Sim", lived between 3.9 and 2.9 million years ago! Not that WHOLE time, of course, that's just a range of possible... Look, this is a rare find and it should be treasured!
3Fossilized WhatzitRare§175This fossil has stumped experts from every conventional scientific discipline. No one knows what it really is.
4Fossilized UdderUncommon§85Every scientist knows that prehistoric cows had rows of jagged teeth like a mako shark. No wonder, then, that their udders evolved to be very tough. That's why this specimen is almost perfectly preserved eons after these gentle giants roamed the world.
5Perfectly Preserved MustacheUncommon§100This fossil marks the passing of an ancient gentleman of true class. A gentleman who fell face-first Into some ancient mud.
6Prehistoric BirdUncommon§75This is a near-perfect preservation of Raptor Erraticus, which was known to fly in random, crazy patterns to distract predators. A downside to this particular defense was that the bird often flew into trees or rocks and was immediately killed.
7Fossilized Plant ImprintCommon§70Wax paper didn't exist a long time ago. When cavepeople found a leaf they liked, they instead encased it in clay, dried it out and then displayed it next to their mammoth-fur rugs.
8Prehistoric RockCommon§15In prehistoric times rocks were shaped like sharp little triangles, which ancient hunters would use to catch food. Over time people began to plant, farm, and raise livestock. They had no more need for these rocks, and so the rocks evolved into the smooth blobs we see today.
9Fossilized EggCommon§70While this egg will never hatch, one can still wonder if there is a baby dinosaur hidden inside or if it is just the undeveloped yolk of a giant, pre-historic mega-chicken.
10Enormous TrilobiteCommon§40Trilobite means three lobes. It does not mean being bit at a strength three times a normal bite. If that were the case, arthropods would be terrifying!
11Hilariously Tiny T-Rex ArmsCommon§45T-rex arms were once considered good luck. People wore them on charm bracelets, key chains, and hung them from vehicle mirrors. Science has confirmed the arms bear no lucky properties, but it was still pretty lucky to find two!
12Raptor ClawCommon§70This claw's owner was a pack hunter, so her attack would come not from the front, but from the side -- from the other two raptors you didn't even know were there. Clever girl.
13Fossilized Sim HandCommon§45This fossilized hand serves as a somber reminder that excessive and overzealous high-fiving can lead to tragedy.
14Fossilized Sea MonsterCommon§50Eons ago, in an era when things were way more awesome, a powerful wizard sailed the seas battling sea monsters. One such monster thought he finally had the drop on the wizard, only to find himself turned to stone and sinking to the ocean floor.
15Prehistoric HoofprintCommon§40An ancient caveman preserved animal footprints as a hobby, displaying them in a popular museum-cave for all the other cavepeople to cave-enjoy. What an amazing convenience it was for modern anthropologists to find these preserved footprints all in one place!
brokeBroken FossilCommon§10Fossil Extraction gone wrong.
16The Golden TrilobitePlaque§0Awarded to household when completing the "Fossils" Collection.
