In The Sims community, the term "berry" is used to describe Sims who have unnaturally colorful hair, skin tone, and eye color, wearing matching outfits. The Not So Berry Challenge is a legacy challenge in The Sims 4 created by The Sims YouTuber lilsimsie and her friend alwaysimming.[1] 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 are required to fulfill the goals set for the game. The following lists the rules of the challenge.

General rules

  • Each heir represents the color of the generation (i.e. hair, makeup, clothing). Skin color is not necessary for the Not So Berry challenge, hence the name.
  • The colors of the spouses do not matter as they are not part of the challenge. Unless otherwise stated, the player can do whatever they please with them.
  • Money cheats can be used, but not excessively.
  • The player may live wherever you please unless something is specified in the rules of a generation.
  • Every generation is supposed to complete both the career and aspiration of the heir unless explicitly stated otherwise.
  • Keep the lifespan on normal.
