A complete list of Beautiful Vista lots for all EA worlds doesn't seem to be available anywhere, so I decided to start curating one.

If you are aware of any BV lots, I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know about them. I'd love the lot size and the moodlet value as well if you happen to know them.

I'm hoping this will be a useful tool for the community once it's complete.

The ones with asterisks by them I have checked personally.

Pictures for all worlds coming eventually. I have only done Bridgeport and Starlight Shores at the moment.

    If you need help Carl's has listings and several forum threads about which lots have the BV moodlet.

    http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/sunsetvalley/


    If you go to their search feature....which is quite good.....and type in beautiful vista lots you'll find a lot of discussion threads about it.

    Thank you! I think I have caught all of the SV ones, but I will head over now to have a go using their search feature to look for more.

    I was just using google before :P

    great idea...

    maybe add a map with stars on the lots... so when you don't know the road name (can't translate it) it is easy to find....

    I will check Roaring Heights now, if you like. If I have the time, I'll attempt a map for it as well.

    ETA I've checked all the empty lots and so far nada. Though curiously my sims are getting the "beautifully decorated" moodlet, with nothing but a bin and a letterbox on the lots.

    Also, can you clarify whether something like "Beautiful Park" or "Lovely Pool" counts? I'm getting the same image as the beautiful vista moodlet but with these as differing text.

    Thanks so much for this information! You're very kind to look for me.

    Regarding the other moodlets, if you change them into residential lots, does the moodlet change to BV?

    glad you like the idea... I know it will help me to have the stars.... dosn't really need other Things... like what roade it is... or so... just an orintation map

    post on my wall if you need map Pictures... I think I have an ok one of HS but with almost no Buildings on it (that could be both a plus and a minus...)

    if you want I be happy to try and take map Pictures...


    maybe the vacation and uni + futureistic World need to be looked at aswell

    Thank you :-) I think I can get the maps myself. I'll need to go in and figure out where each of the lots is anyway so I can mark it on the map, so I may as well just take a screenshot then. It just might take a bit of time :P

    I'll probably number the lots on the map then say underneath what each of the numbers mean, like a key.


    I definitely want to do future, vacation, and uni worlds, along with all the other home worlds I haven't listed yet. I just don't have information for these at the moment, but if anyone else does I would love them to share it here.

    I am actually wondering whether the WA worlds have the BV moodlet at all. I spend a lot of time in Al Simhara and have never noticed it.

    Oasis Landing looks really pretty. I have only been there once for about 5 minutes to pick up a plumbot, but I look forward to exploring it more :-)


    Ok, how is this for Bridgeport? All the BV lots seem to be on the right side, but I decided to include a shot of the whole town to help people orientate themselves. I checked all the lots I'd seen listed on other websites and also found two more by myself.

    Beautiful Park definitely changes into BV when converted to residential - I just checked when I was doing Bridgeport. I'm not sure about Beautiful Pool.

    Have added Lucky Palms, but I had to find all these myself so I don't know if the list is exhaustive. I basically just had my sim teleport around town to lots that looked like they might have a nice view.

    Sorry, yellow moment going on here ---- Vista Lots?
  • GreenCatsGreenCats Posts: 9,300 Member

    Some lots give a 'beautiful vista' moodlet to sims who are on them, either outside or in a room with windows. These are set in CAW (or EA dev equivalent) and have nothing to do with how you landscape or what you build you place there.

    They are great for legacies because of the moodlet boost. They are also sometimes, although definitely not always, a decent indication of which lots in a town afford the nicest views.

    There are lists available for a few of the EA worlds, but no complete list I can find, and certainly not with pictures. So we are trying to find them all :-)

    Yes, absolutely! I am hoping people will contribute with their own experiences :-)

    Will do the picture for LP next time I am in that world. I felt I'd been staring at my screen for to long so quit the game for the evening 8)

    I found a BV lot in Chang Simla over the weekend, which disproves my theory that the WA worlds don't have any. I'm continuing my search :-)
