I know this isn't a technical issue, or at least I don't think so, but I have been playing a sim who has the Science Career, and one of the things the job keeps asking my sim to do is analyze a crystal,fossil or plant sample on the microscope, but all the parts for that are always grayed out! It says I am missing a slide of which ever of the 3 things I am wanting to look at on the microscope!
Now I have checked the analyzer thing, I got a cutting from a plant all kinds of stuff, and I still can't see how I am supposed to get a slide of the plants, crystals or fossils! And do have plenty plants and crystals to use as well as metals too! But I don't understand how I am supposed to make a slide to use with the microscope!
I know its probably just something I am missing, over looking, but I could really use the help on this!
I wanted to just put it on the forum, since this isn't a tech problem, but now there doesn't really seem to be a place for just getting simple how to game help, now we are stuck with being brought here every time we need help with a simple thing, I am sure one of the other players could have helped me quickly and I would be having to bother you tech guys on something less techy and probably more just something I am missing, not seeing, in the game!
You guys need a simple game help area on the forum now, for asking " how to " questions!
moved your post to the game info forum :D
You'll need to collect a Microscope Samples first. You can do so from several objects but you'll need logic skill.
It's an option you'll get on those objects once you reached the right skill level.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
