After acquiring a collectible, you can use it to decorate your home or sell it for a price. Furthermore, some of these collectibles emit an emotional aura that be used to change the mood of Sims in the area where that collectible is placed.

In this guide, I’ll be talking about all thirteen collectibles, their potential effects, and how to find them.

Aliens

First off, you’ll need a rocket to travel to the outer atmosphere and collect aliens. There are a total of ten aliens that you need to complete this collection. The aliens that you can find in outer space along with their selling prices are:

  • Dead Pink Whale – 150
  • Dead Blue Slug – 150

Crystals

Unlike collecting aliens, you don’t need to travel to outer space to collect crystals. Instead, you need to explore different neighbourhoods and dig up rocks to find them. There are a total of twenty crystals that you need find to complete this collection.

Crystals are composed of different elements which is another type of collectible that you can collect. Read on to know more about elements collectible. Here are all the crystals along with their selling prices:

Elements

Like I have mentioned above, crystals are composed of different elements. Once you dig out a crystal from a rock, you can call Geological Council and send them the crystal to get it decomposed into elemental form. Do note that once a crystal is decomposed, it cannot be used a crystal anymore and the process is irreversible.

There are a total of fifteen elements that you can collect and all of them are mentioned along with their selling prices:

Fish

Each neighbourhood offers more than one fishing ponds where your Sim can collect different fishes. Some of these fishing ponds only yield common and uncommon fishes; there are some ponds which yield rare fishes. Another thing to keep in mind is your Sim’s fishing skill. There are some fishing ponds which require higher fishing skills.

There are a total of twenty-two fishes that you can collect and they’re provided below:

  • Rainbowfish

After buying a computer, you need to head over to the socialize category and look for a Pen Pal in any city. After a couple of hours, you’ll know where your Pen Pal lives so you can it a letter.

After building up a strong relationship, you can ask your Pen Pal to send you a postcard of the city it lives in. There are a total fifteen postcards to complete this collection and they’re all provided below with their respective selling prices:
