The Not So Berry Challenge is a Sims 4 legacy challenge, meaning that it takes place over several generations of the same sim family. For many Sims 4 players, challenges are a fun way to keep the game fresh and give narrative and direction to an otherwise open-world game. For a detailed description of the Not So Berry Challenge in The Sims 4, and tips on how to play it for yourself, read on.

Originally created by YouTuber lilsimsie and Twitch streamer, alwaysimming the challenge spans across ten generations of a sim family, with each new generation taking up the challenge and representing a different colour. Colour or 'berry' sims embody one particular colour, with their style, hair and make-up reflecting the colour of their name. Each berry will set out in the challenge with a career goal, three pre-allocated traits and a bio of their aspirations/goals.

The purpose of the challenge is to encourage sim players who wish to be driven out of their comfort zones and experiment with new sims and narrative opportunities. The order of berry sims is mint, rose, yellow, grey, plum, orange, pink, peach, green and blue. Thanks to the success of the challenge amongst The Sims community, prominent YouTubers and sims players have given it a try.
