Microscope Prints (Collectibles)

Obtaining microscope prints is a multiple-step process. Before you can begin you need to get your Sims' Logic skill to level 2 to take sample slides for the microscope. Then you can click on any plant, fossil or crystal and choose to collect a microscope sample onto a slide.

Analyze the sample in the microscope to get a print.
Once you have the sample, go to a microscope and analyze it. Each time you do this you have a chance of getting a microscope print. To get all 12 prints, you will need to take samples of lots of different types of plants, fossils and crystals.

Once you have these prints, you can hang them on the walls of your home. They come already framed, as can be seen in our sample photo above.

Image Name Value Rarity Description
Trace Remains.png Trace Remains §255 Uncommon Ever 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.
The Drifter.png The Drifter §105 Common Never 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.
Crystal Palace.png Crystal Palace §485 Rare At 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.
Blemish Blossom.png Blemish Blossom §220 Uncommon This 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.
Falling.png Falling §215 Uncommon Evoking 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!
Cell Block.png Cell Block §220 Uncommon Look 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.)
Snow Fight.png Snow Fight §110 Common They 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.
Leaf Meat.png Leaf Meat §445 Rare Isn't it strange how zooming in on a fossilized leaf actually makes it 100k 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.
Psychedelic Rock.png Psychedelic Rock §110 Common If 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!
Party in Pink.png Party in Pink §115 Common Magnification 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!
Hooplankton.png Hooplankton §100 Common This 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.
Rhapsody in Blue.png Rhapsody in Blue §95 Common Don'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.
