What a unique and very modern approach to the criteria, @Freelala. There was a food truck location across the street from my old high school that resembled Cartography. They rallied the trucks at 4pm each Friday and attracted all kinds of people. I like the realism and the trendiness of having restaurants on wheels, and I think it's a very creative idea on your part.

I am really digging the contrast between your day time faƧade and how it looks at night, @Sparklypotato. That coupled with the eerie lake rumors and the forested location make for a spooky and enticing lore-worthy restaurant that I'm sure gets passed around anecdotally at any campfire.

@PeniGriffin, I actually really like the courtyard with minimal vegetation. Having the zen garden as the centerpiece is certainly enough, and also lends itself to the authenticity of the structure. There are plenty of places where I'm from with traditional Japanese architecture, and either a koi pond, orchard, or zen garden are almost always the centerpiece of the structure.

@Sunbee you will need you to use a screenshot program or the print screen button since the smallest picture size allowed is 800 by 600. You can't use the C key as the shots are far too small.
With your floor plan can you zoom in until your walls are nearly touching the edge of your picture frame.
Please also say what you have picked. This time it is obviously the east, but it isn't always so obvious. For example, a heading might be 'Entry Round 1 Far East Restaurant'
You also need to show the price in the game so as to prove the amount. If you need any help with any of this please feel free to ask and we will be more than happy to help you.

I'm afraid that I am going to have to withdraw from the contest - once again I have bitten off more than I can chew as my mental health has not been as good as I'd hoped/expected :-( I don't have the mental energy to do as many things as I would like, and sadly sims contests are something which I can't justify the energy use for at the moment as I need to focus on work, my relationship with my partner and my upcoming house move (to move in with said partner, so though it's stressful it will be worth it!).

I will be popping by to see everyone's entries and to keep up with how the contest is going, but sadly I won't be taking part. Good luck to all the contestants! :-) And thank you @gdayars for organising/hosting!

Holy crap I want those mushrooms. Now. Someone else can have the peppers. I suppose I'll take one of whatever that meat is...pork chops, maybe?

@lauratje86, sorry to hear that. I totally understand. I'm more inclined to use my energy for sims vs other stuff I should be doing, which is not a good thing. But if I don't have that distraction, I can get even worse, so I will let some non-essential but more important than sims things slide sometimes because I know if I don't "get away" via sims, my mental state will get worse.

Only about 12 more hours to go, and so many still missing! We know a couple will be delayed, and lauratje86 dropped out, but most of the others have been pretty quiet. Hope we hear from them soon!

And looking at the front chart, don't forget Peni Griffin and Sparklypotato!

Out of curiosity, when will the next budget and requirements be posted? If I recall, in the CS contest, there was a three-day delay to enable the judges to have time to get their scores for the previous round together. I don't want to lose time for THIS upcoming round by missing the posting like I did last time. Still in "ow" mode post-surgery, but I think I should be able to get something together.

Thanks to ALL free-site creators, admins and mods.

RIP Sunni ... truly a ray of light.

@lauratje86 Take good care of yourself first.

@franfeliano I love the idea of this lot. And I'm very impressed with the likeness to an actual ship. Nice work!

Now, I'll take a fermented juice, please, and a steak. Time's closing in on the end of the round, and I find myself anxious to see who else submits something amazing before it's over. I'll be with my sim people making their lives crazy, but I'm going to be checking in!

Mine is going to be slightly late. It is finished, I just need to take the screenshots which I can't do until Sunday afternoon UK time.

Want a specific style of house or community building? Why not take a look at my profile and see what I build and then come ask me to make it!
