Not So Berry Legacy Challenge

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 on twitter, tumblr, or even the gallery so we can see!

    You had everything you desired as a child but you were always longing for more. As an adult you have a hard time committing to relationships as you’re so focused on your career.

    5. Get married for the first time as an elder

    Generation Three: Yellow


    Growing up you never had a close relationship with your mother and spent the majority of your time alone in your room obsessing over space. You just really love space. You’ll do whatever it takes to get to Sixam no matter the cost.
    • Traits: Clumsy, Ambitious, Loner

    Generation Four: Grey

    You always felt that you were different. While the rest of your family was busy messing around in the lab, you just wanted to be outside playing basketball. You’re very good at sports and you dream of becoming a professional athlete. To make up for your nonexistent relationship with your parents you want to be there for your own children as much as possible. Oh, and you love to sing.

    4. Be good friends with all of your children
    5. Have family movie night with your spouse and children every Sunday

    Generation Five: Plum


    You’ve always been good at anything you tried. It’s hard to choose a career, so why not try a few? You work as a doctor for much of your life, but as an adult realize that your true dream is to become a professional dancer. You quit your job and join the entertainer career. Basically: you’re an indecisive oddball.
    • Traits: Genius, Noncommittal, Dance Machine

    1. Master dance and two other skills of your choosing, achieve at least level eight in six skills

    4. Must live in at least three different worlds over the course of your life
    Generation Six: Orange

    You’re the black sheep of your family (but with orange hair) and you were raised in a hectic household. You’ve always wanted to cause mayhem, but you’re just really bad at being evil. You enjoy breaking into your neighbors’ houses and eating their food. You really love baking and spend the majority of your spare time eating sweets.
    • Traits: Evil, Self-Assured, Glutton
    • Aspiration: Public Enemy
    • Career: Criminal

    Rules:
    1. Master baking and charisma skills
    2. Master criminal career and complete Public Enemy aspiration

    5. Insist on being evil (claim to be criminal mastermind) but nobody believes you, not even your own children

    Generation Seven: Pink


    You grew up poor and are living paycheck to paycheck working in the business career just as your parents did. You long to write romance novels but are too afraid to quit your steady job to follow your dreams. You’re very practical and you know the chances of making it as a writer are slim, so you stay working at your nine to five. As an adult you finally decide to pursue your dreams. You’re a hopeless romantic, but your unflirty nature makes it nearly impossible to find love.
    • Traits: Neat, Unflirty, Creative

    Generation Eight: Peach

    Your mother always taught her to follow her dreams. You’ve always wanted to be a detective. You’ve always wanted to be a comedian. Well dang it, you can do both! Detective by day, comedian by night, you can do anything you set your mind to.
    • Traits: Foodie, Lazy, Goofball
    • Aspiration: Joke Star

    5. Must live in a different world than the one he/she was raised

    Generation Nine: Green

    You were caught hacking by a major tech company that then offered you a position in their firm. You know Penelope Garcia from Criminal Minds? That’s you. You’re dedicated to your work, but that doesn’t stop you from going out and having a good time. You’re the kind of person that will be at a party at 3am and then at work at 6am.
    • Traits: Squeamish, Geek, Cheerful
    • Aspiration: Computer Whiz
    • Career: Tech Guru

    Rules:
    1. Master mixology, video gaming, and programming skills
    2. Master tech guru career and complete Computer Whiz aspiration
    3. Must accept every invitation to parties/outings with your friends
    4. Have at least five good friends and five enemies

    Generation Ten: Blue

    You have the perfect life. White picket fence, loving spouse, beautiful children. But why do you still want more? You have a one time secret affair and will regret it for the rest of your life. Afterward you pour your soul into raising your children and fixing your marriage. You never admit the affair to anyone and dedicate your life to being the perfect mother.

    I may try this out!! I've only ever done regular legacies before, and since I prefer playing on long, this one will be a quicker pace for me. I think I may go create a founder right now (:



    Edit: Here she is! I've just named her Mint, because I made her eccentric and I thought it would fit. I thought I'd make her a bit eccentric since she is a scientist, but displayed in her accessories her love for material items. I generally play "normal" sims, so I thought I would experiment! I also don't have much custom content, so it was a bit difficult finding mint colored clothing and I made do with what I had.

    I've been doing this challenge for a little while and decided to look up if there was a thread in the forums here. Yay! I found one! Here is my first generation sim. Her name is Everly Berry. She actually just aged to elderly. (I cheated and aged them down in CAS to take screen shots as young adults. Keon is adult with 2 days until elderly. Then I clicked undo to X out of CAS back to the game.) I haven't been taking screenshots of my game play. She ended up having twins. I named them Royce and Roslyn. They are now teenagers, with 7 days until young adult.

    Hi there, I've just started doing this legacy and it's so much fun. I don't think my founder will achieve all the expected goals, though. She's not doing so well at work and the Mischief aspiration is taking a bit of a back seat.
    I posted some pictures in Tumblr and if anyone is interested, here is the link: http://cillaben.tumblr.com

    Here is a pic of my founder, Pippa

    I hadn't got around to posting my founder, but here she is! Patina Prism! :) I've played for a little bit, switching on and off with my other Legacy family, but it's been fun! I'm loving the science career! It's fun to go to work with her! And we've found a fair number of elements so far! Gotta start making friends though outside of work. Lol She does have an enemy at work though.

    Just a little update on Beryl! We are 5 elements away from completion, level 5 in the Science career, but kinda falling behind on the mischeif skill. Never really used that skill before

    -Only have one child
    -Leave someone at the alter

    I am working on Gen two... but how does one leave someone at the alter.. I've never actually done this.

    Uh oh... well ... uh.. how though.. is there an option that pops up to not complete the ceremony once it is going? (btw.. both friendship and romance is 100% on the sim I have chosen to play out my storyline with)
  • Dglbr1969Dglbr1969 Posts: 846 Member
    I thought this had been play tested by the creators? I have not left someone at the alter either, have made a founder for this challenge, but haven't started as yet, does anyone know how to do this? I'd hate to get to this stage and not be able to do it. Do you have to have a certain trait, like non-committal ? maybe?
