The Sims 4 Element Collection Guide

Gotta collect 'em all!

The Sims 4 has all sorts of hidden gems of gameplay to explore. One of those is element collection. You can be a rare elemental collector in no time if you know where to look.

How do you find elements in The Sims 4?

Elements are randomly spawned throughout the world in your Sims 4 game. You can collect all elements but one (part of the Get to Work expansion) within the base game. Since elements are ranked with rarity, some elements will spawn more often than others. When you see a brown and silver rock sticking out of the ground outside, dig it up and send it to the Geo Council (send by clicking on it in your inventory) to test and determine which element it is. To get the plaque for collecting all elements, you do not need the element from Get to Work.
