Gummi has agreed to judge. She has been out and didn't realize the contest had started. She had agreed to before, but things have been interesting. She will be on later to do her official application However if anyone else comes along, we can always have more emergency judges... Nothing like not having to do it myself :P

I posted this twice in one thread, and not at all in another.. I am definitely tired LOL.

I would like to judge I have several lot uploads, some of which sort of fit into the theme of this contest.
- Mitra vacation home, based on Saturnfly's The Mitra
- Funtopia water land, an entertainment community lot in a tropical style
- Sunnyside mall, a mall with a restaurant and entertainment, loosely based on a real mall I used to go to in Sevilla, southern Spain

I love to travel, and Bon Voyage is one of my favorite expansion packs, so I say, bring it Wanderlust! Can't wait to see what you guys all create for this contest

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.

@gummilutt you are added and @broomhilda61 for the first round you build 1. Restaurant/food lot (not necessarily a restaurant that is an example) 60,000 2x3 it can also be 3x2. You have to pick one theme for each lot type, from the following: tropical, mountain/country, eastern, or desert. Once you choose one for each type of lot, you cannot repeat that theme. Your goal is to build it as closely as possible to theme, and to type, but still show as much uniqueness and build quality as you can. Decor and playability count as well Be careful to stay under budget, and look at the picture rules!

For those that are unsure, the first round is 1. A food lot/restaurant style lot. Then pick an area: 1 Tropical, 2. Eastern,3 Mountain/Country, 4. Desert. (you can only pick an area once) Round one must be on a 2 by 3 lot size and you have up to $60,000 to spend.

Eastern/Asian You don't need BV, it can all be cc. I would suggest going with the area that you like the best first, but maybe going with the one you are least sure of might be good to get it out the way. So you pick Eastern go google Asian decorating and Asian restaurant to get some ideas. Look up Asian CC since that might spark more ideas.

Eastern is Oriental (I suppose it could be middle Eastern as well since I didn't specify)

it doesn't have to be in a vacation hood, just something you would be apt to see if you went on vacation there so think along the lines of an Oriental restaurant. I really was trying to leave it somewhat open for interpretation, as I was hoping for some great creativity to emerge

Is it correct that if you use the 'i' info button that lot size: 20x40 that this = a 3x2/2x3 lot?

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

I've made over the post to be fancily worded @gdayars :D

The road adds 10 tiles to the lot info button, so the game will say 30 by 30 which means the lot is actually 2 by 3.

The easiest Way is hover your mouse over the empty lots in game, it will tell you. :D

40 by 20 sounds like a custom size.

I will go in and test really quick as I have a cc free testing hood

CLARIFICATION: the game adds 10 to the second number. so 2x3 is 20 by 40 and 3x2 is 30 by 30. EITHER of these is acceptable for the first round

40x20 would be right if the short side is the front. 30x30 would be for long side front

...or maybe visa versa but still should be right for one of the allowed versions...I think...but now I've confused myself, lol

This is what I mean about mouse hover and lot size.
