Collection count is not correct in my current saved game. I am a bit perturbed by this turn of events. The Surley household had completed the Metals, Crystals and decorative Eggs collections. They had also completed the Aliens collection. I was able to go back to an earlier version of the same save (from April 30th before the Aliens collection was completed) to verify I was correct.

I have a suggestion. Don't really know how these things work, but can it be, that collection data is stored online?
I am called away from the game sometimes and forget to go online again when I return an hour later or so.

I remember from Sims3 that there was a problem with the achievements when played offline.

As I say, I know next to nothing about the structure of the game. It's just and idea.

scratch  Ahem Head Desk  I think I figured it out..... I am the one who broke the collections in this save.
*Deep Breath* This is the save with Curt, Jonah and Muun Beam Surley. I wanted to share Muun Beam as a single Sim household so waited until she had her YA birthday. I saved the game after she blew out her candles. Then I created a second save (different name) and went to Manage World to temporarily send Curt and Jonah to another household. That was the 1st mistake.
After restyling Muun Beam and making sure she has the Science objects in her inventory I uploaded her and put Curt and Jonah back. 
I saved and Quit.
When I went to play the next time I made the 2nd mistake. I should have gone to the older version and continued from there. BUT instead I did what I usually do and started the most recent save game. Curt and Jonah had done the bulk of the collecting. My guess is the came recalculated the Collections tally based only on Muun Beam.
Luckily I had checked when I did and had not made much progress. I went back to the save and replayed from her already celebrated YA birthday.
Collections Restored - Game Progressing Nicely - My face is very red.

I'm so happy you could recover your collections.
I can see this happen to me, but I would never find the reason Laughing

Thanks for sharing.
