    Brilliant guide thanks. I'm having huge problems finishing the fishing collection. I just need three more fish, angler fish, red tail black shark and pirhana. Been fishing at the spots mentioned in the guides for four and a half sim weeks and still no luck. One of my biggest frustrations however is when a teeny weeny 1.3kg minnows comes along and eats my 68kg bass up. What??

    WOW! That sounds like quite a task to complete! Congrats to you and your sim!

    Thank you so much for this. I just started playing the Animal Crossing challenge last night and this will be quite helpful for me.

    This is awesome! I really wanna complete this. The game has so much to explore, I'm still finding out all the new things to collect.

    Thank you all for the support! When new collectibles will be released I will update the list :)

    My sim has just started to do all the collections ... so far she has completed the space prints collection and only needs 2 more fish (the blue crawdad and the lionfish) to complete the Fish collection.

    I have to admit its fun doing all these and leading me to areas of the game I would never have gone otherwise.

    Well done you for completing them all :)

    I've been searching for the last 2 trophies for literally weeks now. I dug rocks until I had 21 treasure maps, then I dug up treasure 21 times. I open all of the capsules, and when I don't find the ones I want, I close the game without saving, over and over again, a dozen times a day. My sim is also a collector, a curator even.
    Is it still possible to get the last 2 trophies? Very tedious and monotonous. I believe I need Tobor and Violet.
    I've even used a cheat to spawn them but they didn't count toward the collection.

    Question regarding this. I finished a collection (Geodes?) but yet when I go to build they don't show up unless i use the cheats but I already finished them shouldn't they show up without the cheat?

    Hello,
    Are the geode items not visible in buy mode? Or is the collection not showing as having been completed?

    They are not visible in buy mode (other than when I used the cheat code, which I don't want to do) but they show up in the collection as being completed.

    Hello
    You need to use the bb.showhiddenobjects cheat to see the collectibles items when searching for debug items.
    It is not like when you unlock career items, and then are able to purchase extra copies of the same item.
    You can't get extra copies of geodes in normal buy mode. You would need to enter the cheat if you would like to get them through buy mode.

    You can just use the showhiddenobjects cheat to collect all the things and get the "All Collections Reward" correct?

    Guru's I don't know what's going on, but it did it again (duplicated my post). Is there a problem on EA side with the forums?

    That is right. You can use that cheat, then have the sims put the items into their inventory and it will register that the collection has been completed.

    I'm doing this for one of my sims; not for anyone in my family that I've had so many baby problems with; but a single one.

    Hello
    To make it easier for you, you may like to download a room that mcrudd has uploaded to the Gallery. It contains all the collection items in the one room. You just need to place the items into the sims inventory and it will register that the collection has been completed .
    The link to the room is

    You can add the room to your sims home, then take the items from the room and placed them into your sims inventory. It may be best to do one type of collection at a time, and check to see if that collection shows up as being completed.

    Wow, thanks for this. I've always been rather a completist when it comes to stuff like achievements etc and I haven't really looked into the sims 4 collections yet. This will really help, especially now that I have a sim in my current save game with the collector lifetime aspiration.

    I do remember in my last save game I had one sim who was really good at acquiring Sydrolin for some reason though :D
