Not So Berry Challenge in The Sims 4

The Not So Berry challenge of the Sims 4 isn’t for every simmer, and it will surely put your Sims knowledge to the test across ten generations. If you’re interested in trying your skills, here’s how to complete the Not So Berry Legacy Challenge in The Sims 4.

The Sims 4 gives players free rein to manage their sim families as they wish, which is why so many fans look for a trying challenge to explore everything the game has to offer. The Not So Berry Legacy challenge is perfect for this since you’ll need to prove all your knowledge as a simmer to complete it without fail.

The Not So Berry challenge was originally created by Sims YouTuber lilsimsie and will require you to have the Get to Work, Get Together, and City Living expansion packs, the Parenthood, Spa Day, and Outdoor Retreat game packs, and the Movie Hangout stuff pack.

If you’re wondering what you need to do to start the Not So Berry Challenge, this is everything you have to do in The Sims 4.

How to play the Not So Berry Challenge

To play the Not So Berry Challenge, you’ll simply need to open your game and create your “Founder” sim, the one that’ll start your Not So Berry dynasty.

You can also play according to lilsimsie’s rules, the famous Sims YouTuber who invented this challenge and made it viral. Here are all the Not So Berry Challenge original rules:

  • Every generation is supposed to complete both the career and aspiration of the heir unless explicitly stated otherwise.
  • Each sim’s lifespan should be normal.
  • Each heir must represent the color of the generation, but brightly colored skin isn’t necessary.
  • The colors of the spouses don’t matter.
  • You can use Money cheats but not excessively, and you can even use freerealstate cheat for your Founder’s home.
  • You can live in any available neighborhood.

Not So Berry Generation One: Mint

Your “Founder” in the Not So Berry Legacy challenge will be the sim inspired by the color mint, so when creating them in Create a Sim (CAS), make sure to choose mint clothing, hair, makeup, or tattoos. You have to also use the Vegetarian, Jealous, and Materialistic Traits for your sim personality.

You can use any CAS item, as long as it is mint-colored in The Sims 4.

Your Mint sim should be an eccentric scientist who loves practical jokes. While they are highly ambitious in their career, they also love going out with their close-knit circle of friends, eating vegetarian meals, and decorating their homes with mint-colored luxury art.
