After decades of selfish and irresponsible decisions, Sims strained Oasis Landing to the limit and beyond. Trash heaps block the sidewalks, meteors pulverize the landscape, and dangerous Rifts have formed beckoning adventurers to climb inside to find their treasures.

Inspired by centuries of whimsical stories, the Sims of Oasis Landing built a paradise! Flowers bearing Dews dot the landscape and nobody can account for strange buried gold being found about town. The locals walk around joyfully, greeting each other with Whimsical waves.

Oasis Landing is a futuristic sub-world that was shipped with The Sims 3: Into the Future. It is set in the distant future, relative to other worlds in The Sims series. Sims can engineer children, something that is not possible anywhere else. They can buy (or build) a Plumbot, or sell one to the masses, set up a digiblast display, or even buy new high-tech stuff from the imports gallery.

Unlike other sub-worlds in The Sims 3, Sims are able to stay in Oasis Landing indefinitely.[1]

There are three types of Oasis Landing: normal, utopian and dystopian.[2] The player starts out in the normal future, but can alter it to a utopian or dystopian future by tampering with certain aspects of life in the present.

It is the only Maxis-created Sims 3 world to have no large saltwater bodies, making it impossible to place a diving area in it. However, saltwater can be found by digging with the terrain modifier in lots placed in the wasteland, while mermaid Sims[TS3:IP] can swim in the dam and Wasteland ZEPHYR stop lakes to keep their tail, despite the transition-to-human moodlet specifying saltwater.

By default, Oasis Landing is missing some base game rabbit holes that would work normally there, including groceries, diners, and regular stadiums.

Cultural references[]

Like several other worlds, Oasis Landing contains various references to real world culture, in this case mainly science-fiction themed media. For example, Fryderyk Rama, Lilah Turni, and Bend0 are parodies of Philip J. Fry, Turanga Leela, and Bender respectively from the animated sitcom Futurama. Chelsea Gateway and Gladys are a spoof of Chell and GLaDOS from the Portal series, while the Mere-Wilkins family is a parody of the Doctor's married Companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams, along with their daughter Melody Pond, and the homeless Sims Samantha Loo and Colby Texas are references to the characters Leeloo and Korben Dallas from The Fifth Element. Another homeless Sim, Martin McFleet, is a reference to the character Marty McFly from the Back to the Future series. Other families that reference popular culture include the Bannister family, who appear to be a parody of House Lannister from A Song of Ice and Fire series, the Castle family, who appear to be a parody of the main family in Castle, the Dunes, who are a reference to the Fremen from the Frank Herbert's Dune series, and the Planesons, who are a parody of the Jetson family from the animated sitcom The Jetsons.

This world contains several different references to the Star Wars series, for example the Orey family are a parody of the Organa family, which comprises Bail, Breha and (Princess) Leia Organa, while the Larson family are a parody of the Lars family, which comprises of (Uncle) Owen Lars, (Aunt) Beru Lars, and Luke Skywalker. Bennett Obi is a parody of Obi-Wan 'Ben' Kenobi.

There are also several references to The Hunger Games. The architecture of the town, as well as the fashions of many of the characters who live in it, seems to have been inspired by The Capitol in The Hunger Games series, particularly the movies. The Mannins are a reference to the types of families living in District 12, and incidentally, the description states that they moved to the Mining District, which happens to be District 12's main industry.

Utopian and Dystopian versions[]

Depending on various opportunities, almanac of time options, and Advanced Technology skill levels, the Sim can alter the course of the future and make Oasis Landing a utopia or a dystopia.

The Utopian version adds large flowers that can be collected colored dew from or shaken, and digging spots with stones in a circle formation. Most trees will have a purple, blue, or pink hue. Virtually all NPCs will use the Stride of Pride as their walk, whether from the Wonderland Sim hidden trait and/or the Wonderland moodlet.

The Dystopian version adds explorable geyser rifts, large waste piles that can be jumped into or cleaned, smaller bits of waste spread around, and the ability to eat collectible beetles and butterflies. The skies are cloudy and dark, and most trees will have dark or no leaves (seemingly from pollution), similar to their The Sims 3: Seasons winter forms.

Many (but not all) of the version-specific features are added through so-called Cause Effect Spawners.


65 lots are in Oasis Landing: 33 are commercial, 8 are empty, and 24 are residential.

Homeless Sims[]




Deceased Sims[]


The names of the four ZEPHYR stops fairly explicitly state possible names for the city's districts, though their coverage of some areas are spotty (especially west Wasteland and Acclivity Ridge). Taking the four stops' names at face value, the districts would be:

  • Downtown
  • Mining District
  • Residential (The main housing area, and also has pool, a small park, and a lounge. Possibly includes Acclivity Ridge.)
  • Wasteland (Though ZEPHYR stops at its far southern end, i.e. Derelict Beach and the Gateway family, there is broad consensus that the entire desert, Bennett Obi, and possibly The Campus are also part of Wasteland.)
  • Western Ascension Avenue villa plains (Name unofficial; the area is not even close to being covered by ZEPHYR.)


Other languages[]

Language Title
English Oasis Landing
Brazilian Portuguese
Chinese (Simplified)
Chinese (Traditional)
European Portuguese
Russian Оазис приземления


  • The name was changed from Arcadia Landing during development.[4]
  • All of the households have §50,000 of household funds.
  • Many of the service Plumbots in Oasis Landing have names in leet-speak which resemble serial numbers and hint at their purposes, such as the maid CL3-4N (Clean), the burglar 7H13F (Thief), and the mailman L37-73R (Letter), among others.
  • A bug with the Dystopian Future geyser rift causes frequent Sim resets if the game language is set to something other than English. A mod exists that aims to fix it.
