TeeSeaTeeSea Posts: 1,073 Member
WELCOME!

The Not So Berry Challenge:

I am starting the Not So Berry Challenge but playing it a little differently than most. I will be using the Not So Berry Challenge as a guideline for my gameplay. I am still following most of the rules but I am using a custom lifespan and have added in more requirements as new packs have been released or I've found new gameplay mods.

The Rules I've Changed or Added:
-Teens can move out (Except Pink Gen)
-Teens can graduate early but not age up unless they've met the requirements below
-Plum Gen only has to work in the fast food career for 1 week as long as they join an afterschool activity
-Plum Gen can quit working as a Doctor as a Young Adult if they have maxed out the career and earned 3 promotions after maxing out the career
-Orange Gen had to live in a house because there was a glitch with shipping Trendi items.
-Each generation must have a cat, dog, caged pet, dust bunny, cow, llama or chicken(except Mint). If said pet dies before the next generation moves out, they must adopt another
-Emotional Deaths are disabled
-Following Rewards Traits Are Off Limits: Needs No One, Forever Fresh, Never Sleepy, Forever Full, Carefree, or Shameless
-I use MCCC/inheritance to divide the parents assets evenly between their kids upon their passing
-MCCC Child Support is active and set at 1%
-MCCC Settings allow for a random number of traits to be passed on to their offspring
-Sims can attend University
-You can follow your teenage sim to school if the previous Berry Generation is not in an active career or they have already reached level 10 is said career

**New Updates to the Age Span and removed the health care mods on 10/09/22**

Not So Berry Challenge Official Rules
Not So Berry Legacy Challenge
Do you like the rainbow? Do you like the idea of playing with berry Sims but hate berry Sims? Do you want to mess around with aspects of the game you’ve never used before? Boy, do I have the challenge for you!

Welcome to the Not So Berry Legacy Challenge, a ten generation legacy with a focus on bright colors and new experiences.

Basic Rules:

Each heir must represent the color of the generation (i.e. hair, makeup, clothing), but brightly colored skin is not necessary (these aren’t actually berry Sims, that’s the joke). Of course, this is optional but a big portion of the fun.
The colors of the spouses don’t matter as they aren’t part of the challenge. Unless otherwise stated you can do whatever you please with them.
Money cheats can be used, but not excessively. Suggestion: use freerealestate for your first home, but no cheats afterward.
You 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.
If you play this challenge and want to share it with us, go ahead and post with #notsoberry so we can see!
My good friend @alwaysimming​ and I kind of created this challenge on accident, but I think it turned out pretty great. We wanted to make something that forced us to play with parts of the game we’ve never explored before. Hopefully you’ll have fun too. You can follow our gameplay on @mintiphresh​ and @lea-fey​ (pronounced “minty fresh” and “leafy”)!
***From the Not So Berry Challenge Official Rules Page***

I hope you enjoy it.

Have a good one!

    @TeeSea I had to go find the rules for this challenge. I'd heard of it before, but wasn't familiar with the specifics. I like Minty. I also may have to get the kit that her sweatshirt comes from.

    A Not So Berry Story Collection:

    💖The New Neighbor💖
    Gl5QRCx.jpg
    Minty saw a handsome red head moving in across the street. She headed over to introduce herself. Meet Korbin Sweeney. Korbin and Minty talked.

    Q8S6ECB.jpg
    Talking soon turned into flirting.

    HqRNy7j.jpg
    Flirting lead to their first kiss.


    vQzkYz7.jpg
    Before work Minty headed over to Korbin's house to give him a Valentines gift. Korbin is a neat sim and loved the handheld vacuum she gave him.

    gscJfCS.jpg
    Minty asked Korbin if he would like to be her boyfriend. He said yes!

    gDUMibR.jpg
    Minty asked Korbin out on a Valentine's Day date. She took him to Sticky Rice on the Magnolia Promenade.

    kV7ob61.jpg
    Korbin and Minty are very smitten with each other.

    IkrpBwc.jpg
    Since both Minty and Korbin are vegetarians they both enjoyed some sweet and sour eggplant.

    L0wV1r1.jpg
    Korbin walked Minty to her door. He took her hands in his and said "Minty, I know we haven't known each other long, Korbin paused then blurted out, "I love you!" Minty teared up and said "I love you too!" Then she pulled Korbin close and kissed him.


    IB0dGC1.jpg
    Korbin called and asked Minty out on a date.

    5AJmnbX.jpg
    After they finished eating Korbin got down on one knee and said "Minty, I love you more than anything in this world. Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?" Minty literally screamed with excitement as Korbin put the engagement ring on her finger.

    FrQ5GPP.jpg
    Minty asked Korbin to move in with her. He of course said yes.

    Zhiwe6S.jpg
    Minty and Korbin kissed, both blushing from ear to ear.

    😹Prank Day😹

    nc7tLgu.jpg
    Happy Prank Day!

    CmOfKVS.jpg
    Minty and Korbin spent the day pulling pranks on each other.

    sR2RloY.jpg
    Minty headed over the Feng's home and clogged their bathtub drain.

    OMr3sZC.jpg
    Then she headed to the Broke home and clogged their bathroom sink.

    siCH9kh.jpg
    Minty also headed to Vlad's home. Luckily the mean old Vampire was taking a bath.

    XjMC5Qj.jpg
    Minty headed upstairs to the second bathroom and clogged the sink.

    Have a good one!

    I should probably add a link to the rules on my main post. I like Minty too. When I first made her in CAS I had her wearing more of a lime-green look because I thought Mint was just fancy for Green. Then I looked over all the rules and saw that there is actually a Green Generation. I tried to find some outfits and hair as close to the color Mint as possible. It wasn't easy but I managed to give her a pretty good makeover. The Incheon Arrivals Kit has a lot of nice clothes and sneakers. I highly recommend it.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    6YxnBeQ.jpg
    Korbin announced "I got promoted and am now on track to my dream job of owning a startup company." Minty congratulated him and told Korbin how proud she is to be his fiance.

    tZeU7el.jpg
    Korbin and Minty started eating. Minty was having a little trouble with the spiciness of the dish.

    uLICii1.jpg
    Korbin who had already finished his beverage was also having a bit of tough time with the spicy food. "You should of saved your beverage." Minty pointed out.

    ZZ0EFPD.jpg
    Korbin agreed to be Minty's subject for mischief training.

    jNCn6dG.jpg

    @TeeSea Minty and Korbin had a lovely wedding. I like the beach wedding venue, which I'm assuming you made yourself. I also think the Sims team did a good job making Tartosa picturesque. More than one reviewer panned the wedding pack because they said weddings were totally broken by it, but I used it for the first wedding I'd had in ages and it went well, I thought. Your wedding seemed to go well, judging by the pictures; were you satisfied with how things worked out in game?

    @jbadger12
    Yes, I built the beach wedding venue and I love it. I'm glad to hear your wedding went well. Mine was frustrating but I did manage to get good screenshots that make it look like a wedding that had no problems. To begin with, the Wedding started at 1pm. It took till almost 6pm for all 13 guests plus their wedding party to arrive. The game created "Polished Outfits" were worse that a badly dressed townie, Minty's Person of Honor was wearing a pink blazer with some dark orange pants and bright green heels. Luckily I expected this and gave everyone coming to the wedding an outfit to change them into with MCCC. As far as the actual ceremony I had a very hard time getting Sims invited to the wedding to move once they've taken their seats. I had to reset every sim with MCCC that was in the wedding so that they would walk down the aisle. The only part that worked correctly was when Minty and Korbin walked down the aisle. The officiate stood off to the side of the arch instead of in the center. I couldn't get people to line up for the recessional or blow bubbles. The only sims besides mine who were active in all the wedding events were the Persons of Honor, The wedding took 12 hours to complete because of the glitches and the late arrival of guests so the wedding cake spoiled before they cut it. MCCC saved the wedding again allowing me to make it unspoiled. It worked about as well as I expected and they need to do more bug fixes. Even with all it's frustrations the wedding was still better than the bland boring weddings of the past.

    Thanks for stopping by. Hope you had a great weekend.
  • jbadger12jbadger12 Posts: 321 Member
    @TeeSea Thanks! It has been a good weekend. We actually had some sunshine.
    From what I've read, the "Take your seats" command requires some retuning; I think it's supposed to be "fixed" in the next patch. It sounds like our experiences were similar. I scheduled my wedding on the phone, and everybody showed up at the venue together. I got some people to throw rice, but not at the couple. My cake disappeared after it got cut, but before anyone could eat it. You're the first person I've talked to who's had the officiant actually show up.

    ta90uxz.jpg

    I have to say despite the trouble I had, it was still the best and funnest wedding I've had in the sims. I brought my cake in my inventory because I was afraid it would disappear like yours did. My Officiate's kids were the Flower Pal and Ring Bearer so maybe that's why he showed up?
    I'm glad to hear you had a good weekend.
    Good luck at work this week!

    @TeeSea I think Korbin and Minty are asking for trouble with that bee box. I hope nothing bad happens.

    Minty has 3 EpiPens in her inventory and she is not allowed to go to the basement unless the bee's are calm. I love the Health Redux mod by adeepindigo. I also use her Dental Care mod and Eye Care mod. Have a great day!

    iTvfHiG.jpg
    After their nap, Minty and Korbin headed into the play room to discuss how they are going to handle childcare in the future. Tomorrow the twins will be aging up to toddlers. Minty wants the children to be cared for at home by a nanny or trusted friend so they can attend Preschool. Korbin nixed the nanny idea right away because he doesn't want to leave his kids alone with a stranger. Minty then brought up an idea she got from Maddison Avery. The Avery's own two Servo's named Mary Bottins and Lynn Botvadeer. She needs a place for them stay for about two weeks while her family goes on vacation. Maddison trusts them to stay at the house but worries they will get lonely. She got them when she had her first child to help care for her kids. Korbin thought this sounded like a good solution. Minty will text Maddison in the morning to let her know Mary and Lynn are more than welcome to stay.

    @TeeSea Assorted thoughts: Those toddlers seemed to grow up very quickly. Does Preschool help them with their skills at all? I keep trying to call Garnet "Ruby". I like the cat stuffed animal better than the base game one, but I often forget about it when I'm building.

    @jbadger12
    7 days is a short life stage but it takes less than that to get their skills maxed out. Preschool not only helps with skills but also with Character Values as well. I use Education System Bundle by KawaiiStacie. You can also have your children and teens do home schooling. I also use Lifetime Skills by TwistedMexi which helps with skill building. I was originally thinking of naming Garnet, Ruby, but it seemed like to obvious of a choice. I like giving my kids original sounding names. Thanks for stopping by!

    Garnet and Ivy also have a deck attached to each of their bedrooms with a yoga mat and meditation stool. I forgot to get pictures.

    Have a good one!
