I've created a massive List of The Best Mods in The Sims 4 that should be very helpful to new players and those who have not yet explored modding and how much it can do for your gameplay.
The Sims 4 Elements Collecting Guide
Element List with Metals and Crystals Made of Each Element
Collecting Elements in The Sims 4 means gathering Crystals and Metals from digging Rocks found around Sims 4 Neighborhoods, Secret Areas, and Parks. Each of these are made of various Elements, and can be analyzed by contacting the Geo Council when clicking it in your Inventory. They will tell you the composition of the Metal/Crystal, which will be from two to three Elements. Sending it in for $20 will give you a chance to get one of the Elements from that collectible in the mail the following day.
The List below can be very helpful to obtaining all of the Elements. The Crystals and Metals you can get each Element from are listed by which has the highest chance first, and generally in an order from common to more rare. You wouldn't want to get the common Melacoo Element from a rare Rainborz Crystal, but you can. It would be better to use Sapphire (listed first). But, in case you want to finish the collection and don't mind what you consume, I've bothered to list all the Crystals/Metals from which that Element may be obtained.
Get to Work Additions: You can skip sending things to the Geo Council if you own Get to Work and take a job in the Scientist Active Career, as you're able to analyze crystals and metals yourself. The EP adds one new Element, which is in this list: Xenopetrium. This element only comes from metals and crystals found on the hidden planet Sixam.
Elements give off a Focused Aura when placed and the Aura is enabled.

I've been having intense difficulty completing the elements collection due to not being able to find Crytacoo anywhere. Sure, I've found the metals and crystals that should form Cryatcoo multiple times but everytime I send them off I get another element those crystals/metals could create.
I understand that these crystals and metals can come back with a different element than the one I want, however, it's come back with something else so many times I'm starting to think my game is bugged.
I tried repairing my game and nothing changed, I removed my mods and cc but that doesn't help either. Any tips?
Any reply is appreciated, thanks!
Thanks so much!
Anybody know how to find nitelite for xenotropium?
Level 10 scientist, it keeps tasking me to make age-away serum, and I’ve been to Sixam about ten times. Found everything else, but not nitelite.
Also, if I do found it, how do I combine the 2 crystals and 2 elements to make the serum?
You need to look for either of the crystals Nitelite or Crandestine then you can then send away to the Geo Council (action on the collectable when on home lot accessed by clicking on it) and get back the element Xenopetrium. Or you can Practice at the Chemical Analyzer machine and hope that one of the random chance elements you get will be Xenopetrium, which happens quite often.
You just need the ingredients in your sims inventory when they go to make the serums. So walk up to Chemistry Lab machine and click to make the serum of your choice will all the ingredients in your Sims inventory and the game will auto-use them in the process of making the serum.
This is probably a dumb question, but do elements stored in the element board continue to act as focusing decor? Or are they effectively turned off? Debating whether I should buy the board, or just continue dropping elements in any free space I can find on wall shelves and end tables, to maintain my Focusing Decor.
Once elements are stored in the board they can be clicked on and the focused aura can be enabled or disabled. I would suggest to buy the storage board for 2 reasons, one you can easily see which element you are still missing to complete the collection and 2, it is far easier to move around than individual elements.
Thanks! Too many Sim games treat containers as fully closed off from the environment.
