Sims 4 Not So Berry Challenge: For A Colorful Legacy

Are you looking to tackle your next legacy challenge?

The Sims 4 Not So Berry Challenge will have you see the generations through color.

Legacy challenges are great because they last longer than shorter ones, like a Sims 4 Build Challenge.

They’re made to be creative and very fun to play, so the longer the challenge, the better.

In 2017, the sims YouTuber Lilsimsie came up with the Sims 4 Not So Berry challenge.

It’s a legacy challenge that spans through 10 color-themed generations.

For this particular challenge, you’ll need to have the following packs installed on your computer:

  • Sims 4: Get to Work expansion pack
  • Sims 4: City Living expansion pack
  • Sims 4: Outdoor Retreat game pack

And if you want a sneak peek of the challenge, check out Lilsimsie’s video.

Sims 4 Not So Berry Challenge Rules

This sims 4 challenge has basic rules that are easy to follow, and they’re primarily based on colors.

  • Your sims, followed by each of their generations, will be represented by specific colors.

  • They will require special physical features or clothing of that particular generation’s color; by features, we’re talking about hair color, makeup, nail color, etc.

  • There’s no need to apply the generation’s color to your sims’ skin tone; it’s totally optional.

  • As for the clothing part, that part’s self-explanatory: your sims pieces in their generation’s color, like tops and bottoms, shoes, jewelry, and more.

This color rule only applies to your main sims and their offspring, which means your sims’ partner doesn’t need to follow that rule.

  • Money cheats are allowed during the sims 4 Not So Berry challenge, but like in any other challenge, it’s best used in moderation.
  • As far as where your household will live, there are no restrictions as long as it follows each generation’s rules.
  • For careers and aspirations, your sims and their future generations must have maxed them out before moving on to the next one.
  • There are no rules concerning your sims’ aging so that they can age with a normal lifespan.

So, unless otherwise stated, you can play the game however you want.

Sims 4 Not So Berry Challenge Goals

As previously mentioned, this is a color challenge, so each generation of your sims is represented by a specific color.
