Question time already.
Can the hot dog or ice cream stand be a truck?

minibud Yes as long as it isn't a sit down restaurant and they can only order hot dogs etc.through a take out window. Remember that this is simply a beach where the kids hang out all summer in 1965.

Going off of Michelle's JFF, since this does not have a shell, we don't need a floor plan pic? Just the 6 "show it off" type pics?

Does that slash between hot dog/ice cream stand mean both or does it mean it could be either a hot dog stand or an ice cream stand or it could be both?

Can it be a lake (so more woodland-ish vibe) or does it have to be a beach by an ocean? :)

I wonder if this is the water, is it correct that there should be no downloaded water?
In that case, I have to pick that out of the game.
(And in 1965 I was born so this will not be easy)

I am going to try to answer these and if I am wrong Betsy can correct me
There is no floorplan...so no overhead shot required
 It can be either a hot dog stand or icecream stand...not sure about having both
It has to be an ocean...with only terrain paints...no actual game water is what Betsy meant...so the terrains CAN be custom...or downloaded
I hope that is all correct

Water should be made only with terrain paints...you must make it "look" like a beach.
You can have a hotdog/hamburger, ice cream stand as long as it is just a stand...meaning an ice cream cart/or hotdog cart OR a small shack where you get your goodies from a window.
No floor plan pictures are needed since there is no structure to build requiring a floor plan.

Betsy can elaborate on my comments...but please check her round specifics on the main theme page for round 4. I do believe she has all the needed instructions.

HAHA Michelle...you beat me with answers  sohappyhappyhappy

minibud Thank you Dawn & Michelle! You did great!  hpypickle

As far as the stand, it should sell only hamburgers, hotdogs, soft drinks and ice cream { stuff teens gobble down}. One or all. There is no where to sit. Just a take out window. This is 1965, no bells or whistles. There are no stores. This is simply a beach where the teens hang out. No families, just teens. They spend the day swimming, surfing, dancing and making out! OMGjaw

This beach must be on an ocean as the teens swim and surf. You are not to use in game water. You must create the look of the ocean using terrain paints.

As long as the lot you are building on only has water made by terrain paints.

Just want to say, I had fun participating in the first few rounds of DOTY!  It pushed me outside of my comfortable box.
Cannot wait to see the rest of it, good luck to all!
