Not So Berry- The Sims 4- Base Game Rules

Hey guys! I know I've mentioned this before but I am playing a modified version of lilsimsie and alwaysimming's Not So Berry Legacy Challenge. I do not own any packs for the game so I do not have access to all the traits and careers that lilsimsie and alwaysimming originally put into this challenge. However I still wanted to play it so I decided to modify the rules a little bit to make it so I could still enjoy this challenge.

Link to original challenge :

The heir must represent the color of the generation,
you can do whatever you want with the spouses unless the rules for the generation specify,

Feel free to share this version of the challenge and play if for yourself. Please remember to share my blog. I plan to update at least once a week. Thank you so much!! Happy Simming!!


  1. I love this as I only have city living and get to work so this helps with all the parenthood and movie night things, on gen 10 though you still have photography (city living skill) and parenting (parenthood skill), I can do photography but what should I learn instead of parenting? also how do you collect postcards?

    1. Hi and thanks for checking out my blog! I updated the rules so they are now completely base game. Postcards are collected by finding penpals through the computer

    2. Does city living come with the vegetarian trait

    3. Yes, the vegeterian trait is included in the city living pack.

    4. You can collect the postcards through penpals in computer

    5. Photography is a base game skill

    6. No it is not I comes with city living

    7. No it comes with base game bc i dont have city living and get to work i only have snowy escape and i have the photography skill so its from base game

  2. you can not get to sixam if you do not have get to work. what should we do then

    1. You could just say visit space a certain number of times past level 10 rocket science skill

  3. I say just visit space 20 times (idk).

  4. For gen 5 do you have to do all the careers or no

    1. just the careers that are mentioned. You don't have to master them

    2. But I only have the base game so I can't do fast food, I was going to make up for it by being a chef instead.

    3. What if the grandparents of gen 1 have already died by the time the yellow baby is born?

  5. Thank you so much! I have parenthood and city living so I can do some of the originals but not all. This helped a cramp ton!

  6. If Gen 3 Yellow cant know anyone then how does Yellow have kids

    1. They can get married and have kids but only after mint passes

  7. Thanks so much! I only have get to work so I think I'll combine this and the original. I've been wanting to do this but some of the original rules are not possible for me, so this was really helpful.

  8. This really helped I wanted to do this for so long and I can now!Thank you, this challenge is a great challenge I only just started and I am on the Mint Generation but she has her Rose child already.

  9. Does Generation ten have to be a girl because on lilsimsie hers says that she wants to be an amazing mother?

  10. Thanks for this, I don't have all the packs and don't want to make my own version!

  11. Thanks! I only have dogs and cats pack and was upset when the original had other packs.

  12. Thanks so much! All I have is the base game but i loved watching this challenge on Youtube. I'm so excited!

  13. Thanks so much! Quick question: what color exactly is rose? Since gen 7 is pink.

  15. What if the grandparents of gen 1 have already died by the time the yellow baby is born?

  16. to get to sixam you need get to work, while i have this some do not like when i first found the base game i didnt have get to work you will confuse people if you say sixam (a alien lot which aliens come from get to work) i base game

    1. No you can go there with base game. As long as you have a rocketship and a high enough skill.

  17. Prob a stupid question, each generation is the previous generations kid right?

  18. If you did it in a rainbow that would be cool because it would could have been rose orange and so on

  19. Thank you so much!!!!!! Since I don't have all the packs cause you have to be rich, I always do challenges base game. So now I don't have to come up with my own.

  20. in gen 1, which career path do i choose?

  21. En la generaciĆ³n uno en aspiraciĆ³n no me queda claro ya que yo tengo el juego base

  22. We have the Vegetation trait in the base game now.

  23. If you're the owner of a Garmin GPS hardware device, you should already know download idm full crack, the software associated to the majority of devices designed by this leading global positioning systems company.

  24. Can't wait to do this challenge on me again right now ready to start and finish can't wait enjoy pressure Vines not so big challenge so much thank you for base game version love you...

  25. I just have a note. I feel like Gen 1's astronaut career and Gen 3's freelance programmer careers can be switched. Other than that I will definitely try this! I did Not so berrys original challenge on my Xbox when I had all the packs on there but now I have PC and I'm starting over getting all the packs.

  26. Its not actually base game because Sixam comes with get to work!

  27. I will make sure to bookmark ba 3rd year result and come back to read more of your useful info. Thanks for the post.
