Fossils Large.png

Fossils are another interesting but tricky type of collectible. Sims don't actually find fossils but sometimes when they dig up rocks, Sims sometimes find limestone. They can then extract a fossil from the limestone. Occasionally you only get a broken fossil but there are 15 different fossils to find. You can take a sample of the fossil and put it on a microscope slide to analyze it on the microscope, in which case you could get another collectible, a Microscope Print.

As you can see from our fossil themed photo above, fossils make great decor in a home. Sims can also study them to get a Focused moodlet as you can also enable the Confident emotional aura to benefit all nearby Sims. This image also shows the plaque that you receive as a reward for completing the collection.

Hilariously Tiny T-Rex Arms.png Hilariously Tiny T-Rex Arms §45 Common T-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!
Enormous Trilobite.png Enormous Trilobite §40 Common Trilobite 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!
