The Sims 4 – Not So Berry Legacy Challenge Guide

The Not So Berry legacy challenge in The Sims 4 is a community challenge originally created by Sims influencers lilsimsie and alwaysimming. To complete the challenge, you must have a ten-generation legacy, with each Sim representing a particular color. Every Sim also has specific aspirations, traits, and careers, with other goals to complete along the way.

Before starting, make sure you follow the rules below throughout your Sims 4 Not So Berry challenge playthrough:

  1. Each character must have their generation’s colors. You’ll do this with hair, makeup, and clothing, but you don’t need to change their skin.
  2. Set lifespans to normal.
  3. Spouse colors don’t matter!
  4. You can use some money cheats but don’t overdo it.

Oh, and make sure you are well-prepared, as you’ll need several expansions and game packs to complete this challenge! I’ve gone into this with only half the required ones. Trust me, it makes it easier to own everything beforehand.
