The display case's name is Carter's Display Case XL Edition, and when you put 8 collectable items on it you can transfigure, and not "transmogrificate", wherever that came from.

The kid, Calvin (from the comic strip "Calvin and Hobbes), is the one who is famous for transmorgifications.

As for Woohooium, the general theory that I've seen is that if you have it on the nightstand by the bed, you won't get rejected for WooHoo interactions.

So...now we have something to test, I suppose.

A transmogrificate (noun) is one who can change shape (usually flawed or with a humorous or grotesque appearance) to fit his/her surroundings.  To transmogrify (verb) means change and transmogrification means changes or the act of changing.   Note:  This word was first used in 1656  :o

To transfigure, on the other hand, means to alter the outward appearance of; transform.

So transfigure is really not the correct word to use but works for those of us that can't pronounce [or spell] transmogrificate - lol

Thanks for the research, but in Sims Wiki it says transfiguration
See here - http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Metal_collecting
Sorry if this is off topic  :)
So, has anyone found out if the current combination to get Woohooium works without Late Night? (I have Fast Lane Stuff, but not Late Night installed) Thanks in advance!

I believe the game actually calls it "transfigurification," which is neither transfiguration nor transmogrification.  It's a made-up Sims 3 word, apparently.

It works for me! I won't even try to spell transmogri-, ... transimogo,- ... never mind: transfiguration.

I found some woohooium in my sims inventory after returning from a trip to China one time. Unfortunately I sold it not knowing how rare it is or how hard it would be to get any more.

I only noticed it in my inventory after returning from my trip so I don't know exactly how my same came to be in possession of it. Although I can say none of my sims have ever yet done any mining, or sculpting or rummaging through garbage cans.

I noticed a post earlier in this thread that said metals and gems cannot be found in the wild. My collection helper would strongly dissagree with this claim. They most certainly can be found in the wild and in abundance.  I just had a sim spend two days straight with Testingcheatsenabled on and needs set to static, teleporting from spawn point to spawn point gathering up every gem, lump of metal ore and space rock there was. and the next full week picking up everything that respawned. My trip length was 18 days but I gave up after that because it was just getting very boring picking up everything that respawned with no woohoium.

My previous sim that had it must have come across it some where. Didn't find any at the relic vendor. I'm wondering if it can spawn in the treasure chests in the tombs or maybe even from excavating dig sites.

The only thing I'm certain of is that neither mining nor sculpting are required as none of my sims have ever done either.

I went through this thread to see where you saw a post about metals and gems not being found in the wild.  (Next time, quoting it would be good.)  I think you misunderstood what the poster was saying.  She wasn't saying that all metals and gems cannot be found in the wild, just the woohooium and flourite that we're discussing on this thread. 

About mining and sculpting, we're not saying they're required to find these items, just that a sculptor without the Savvy Sculptor trait will sometimes get one or the other when a sculpture fails and breaks.  And that these items can also be found mining.

As for your woohooium, it may have come from excavating a site while on vacation.  It can slip in without you realizing it like that.

This makes me want to dig in game code to figure this out. Coding can't lie!unfortunately I'm to afraid of breaking it. Could a coder get in there and do some translating?

I did a quick search of the gameplay data with notepad++ and in the social data resource it says something about the amorous value being 56 or 57 (provided the sims are romantic partners). I think that means that it is lower than usually required for a sim to accept the woohoo request. Whether that is the relationship bar, the flirty/alluring/irresistable I'm not sure. Someone might need to test in game. Normally it takes about 3 flirty interactions, 3 alluring interactions to get the other sim to find them irresistable. I'm not sure what the relationship threshold is for woohoo to be accepted normally.

Confirmed!  Using all small ingots and mercury vials, I got a small iridium ingot and a small woohooium ingot.  Using all large ingots, I got the following small ingots:  iron, iridium, woohooium, and mummitomium.

Now with Supernatural out I've been getting Woohooium occasionally when my witch casts conversion spells on things like conjured apples.

I received a woohooium ingot in the mail as a gift!  I don't have WA or supernatural, just ambitions and seasons.  Glad I found this thread, today was the first time I'd heard of it.

Many metals, if not most of them (and other random items too), can be obtained by being witch sim and using the "conversion spell" if you have Supernatural pack :)  Though its very very random of what item you get.

If you have wold adventures, and your sim is a master at sim-fu, when they break space rocks at the board breaker they can randomly get a raw metal or uncut gem from doing so. My sim has broken at least 80 space rocks and has only gotten about 1 or 2 woohooium and a few flourite.

Welcome to our Forum!

Are you certain about that Woohooium?  Breaking space rocks only produces gems, to my knowledge.

Just to add to the research here,

Platinum with Mercury vial stacked on it, Mercury, Palladium, Silver

Platinum, Mercury, Iridium, Silver


I tried this recipe, and got

1 Mummitomium

10 Iron

1 Supernovium (8,813)

No woohooium

I have ALL EPs and SPs. I did it repeatedly, same result each time.

So at least for me, it seems to be a reliable recipe for Mummitomium, but not Woohooium.
