How to Do the Not So Berry Challenge in The Sims 4
For those who aren’t sure what exactly a Berry Sim is, it’s a colorful Sim that is typically named after some sort of sweet treat. Whether it be a blue Sim named after blueberry pie or a vivid Laffy Taffy-themed family, Berry Sims are just vivid creations that are meant to be a ton of fun and break up the mundane. While it seems like a silly idea at first, creating Berry Sims actually turns into a pretty good time. With that being said, it’s no surprise that a legacy challenge made with Berry Sims in mind has become a popular way to play The Sims 4. The Not So Berry Challenge is a type of legacy challenge that utilizes different colors to mark each new generation. The irony here is that the challenge is made to fit players who might not actually be into the Berry Sim movement but are slightly intrigued by the idea. So whether you love the idea of having a family of Sims that look like they escaped the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory or you want to keep a sense or normalcy and stray away from vivid, unnatural skin colors the Not So Berry Challenge still has something to offer you.
The most basic explanation of the challenge is this—you’re playing through a full 10 generation legacy that uses colors to mark each new generation of Sim. It’s really that simple. The only twist here is that each generation and color has a story behind it that will determine things like your Sim’s traits and aspirations for you. The good news for those who aren’t into the Berry Sim idea is that these Sims actually don’t have to be Berry Sims—hence the name of the challenge being Not So Berry. Rather than having to create an entire Berry Sim family complete with quirky skin tones, you just have to make sure the heir for each generation represents their corresponding color through their hair, clothes, eyes, or other features. The unnatural skin colors, however, are not a requirement of the Not So Berry Challenge.
So without further ado, let’s dive right into the generation breakdown.
