I usually like to write a long story, but really, I don't have the time. Sorry!
Golden Pearl Restaurant
Part of a strip mall and located by the Tigress clothing store in my game, The Golden Pearl is based on real-life informal noodle place establishments with a little upscaling. Not TOO upscale, though! Diners can rent the separate room for very small parties. Sushi, sashimi, tea and coffee are included in the cost if a Sim rents the room.
The main part of the restaurant contains the food stand. Ice cream, coffee and green tea are included in the price. Customers can also enjoy Japanese beverages from the vending machine. These are separate from the price.
No stompies in a real game. I made sure of that.
What is cool is that the sushi table actually works like a game's buffet table with Asian dishes. I did not create it, though, so ... http://lilsisterg.tumblr.com/post/1...ce-buffet-table. Alas, though, the gong is not functional. But it's a gong. I would only hope that my Sims kids wouldn't try to bang on it too much!
I tried not to go overboard with the content, but shot past my favored amount easily. I had a really hard time finding an Asian wallpaper in the dummy ceiling area that would go with the decor and didn't have the pattern cut off. This wallpaper looks very much like an origami paper design, so I went with that one.
No matter what, I couldn't get the adjoining lot to come out clearer. Perhaps it's because I lot-shrunk it; perhaps not. But at least there is something on one side connecting the stores. The restaurant would be the end lot. I had a big, bold railing on top, but lot shrinking also seems to affect those, too. No matter what, even though there were the same clicks on both dummy roofs and I'm using the same railings on both the restaurant and the other lot, the railings on top mismatched. As you might be able to see in the overhead view, the roofs connect perfectly, so the buildings are the same height. The big, bold railing REALLY looked bad and really mismatched between the two buildings, so I had to go for a much lower one, much to my disappointment. The things you learn in these contests ...
