The Sims 4 Metal Collecting Guide

Metals List and Possible Elements from Geo Council

Collecting Metals in The Sims 4 means digging up Rocks found around the game's Neighborhoods, Parks, and Secret Areas. Any rock could yield any of these, but don't expect it to be a quick process. Metals, Crystals, MySims Trophies, and Fossils all come from the same spawners so this is quite a long process. Rares are more likely to be found off the beaten path, such as in Forgotten Grotto or areas distant from homes in Oasis Springs. See the Guide to Collections for some general Tips to finding them.

The following list of Metals indicates what Elements that metal may be broken down to when it is sent to the Geo Council. This is how you collect Elements. You'll get one of the Elements listed in the mail the following day after sending it for $20. The Elements further to the right are generally more rare than those first listed, so it may take multiple attempts to finish that collection.

Metals contribute +2-3 to a room's Environment score when placed and will help you get Decorated Moodlets to higher levels. The Aura must be enabled on these, however, as they do not do it by default. Rarer Metals have slightly higher scores.

Get to Work adds two new Metals: Blutonium and Solarium, which can be found on the Planet Sixam.

In Get to Work there are two new metals to collect from Sixam. Blutonium (made up of elements Xenopetrium and Plathium) and Solarium (made up of elements Xenopetrium, Oxypin and Wolfium).

No, not really. They spawn randomly across the dig sites so your sim just has to keep roaming and digging!

Dig the Dig Sites. They are 'discovered' the same way as fossils, treasure maps and my sims dolls. The little boxes appear under them when placing the metals on certain surfaces.

I’ve noticed if your sim has the kleptomaniac trait they frequently bring home metals from work and school.

Yes, guess their hands are a little 'swipey' while there. Sometimes they'll also bring home a pc from work, not related as such to your comment but I always find that pretty funny... it's quite the large object to hide in your pocket! Laugh
