This is my spin on the Not So Berry Challenge! Inspired by the original challenge, 100% by @lilsimsie & @alwaysimming
There are five generations in this one because I tend to go for shorter legacy challenges as opposed to the 10-gen ones. I might add more if anyone is interested.
I know other people have made some NSB extended versions so I hope I'm not stepping on anybody's toes! I tried to use different colors but ones like black&white are common so they might be in other people's NSBs.
P.S if you want to play this challenge, tag your posts with #notsoberryexpanded so I can see!! :)
*this isn't playtested (yet) so if there's some giant problems, let me know*
Generation One: Seafoam (Blue/Green)
You grew up on the open ocean, sailing around with your parents and fishing. You didn’t really….. get out much… Now you’re on your own, doing the thing that you know best and making a living out of it! Your dream is to own your own fishing boat, but until then you’re stuck as a part-time fisherman trying to work your way up
Traits: Child of the Islands, Erratic, Loves the Outdoors
Aspiration: Angling Ace
Career: Fisherman (Part-time)
Reach Level 3 of the Fisherman career and then quit & register as a self-employed fisherman and make money only from your catches
You must live in Sulani your whole life
Master Fishing & reach at least level 5 in a “hobby” that your sim picks up (any other skill you want)
Complete the “Fish” collection
Generation Two: Violet (Purple)
You grew up surrounded by fish and the great outdoors. You want nothing to do with that. You want to live in the big city and spend your days relaxing (and of course posting everything you do on Simstagram!)

Generation Three: Vermillion (Red)
As a child, your parent cared more about their online reputation than you. So, you entertained yourself by painting all day, every day. You knew you had a passion for it and your art was spectacular, but nobody else seemed to agree, so it never took off. Now, you’re a mixologist by day, but you still secretly paint almost every day

Generation Four: Black & White
*note: both of the twins from the previous generation are the heirs! twin #1 is black and twin #2 is white)
You and your twin are as different as the sun and the moon; polar opposites. Twin #1’s side of the room has always been covered top-to-bottom with clothes and video game posters. Twin #2’s side of the room was always nice and neat. Despite their differences, they’re forced to live together so they can afford to keep the family home (from gen. 3)
Traits for Twin #1: Geek, slob, noncommital
Traits for Twin #2: Family-oriented, neat, music lover

Marry someone as a young adult and grow old together
Adopt (at least) 1 child
Generation Five: Magenta (Pink)
You grew up in a loving household with your parent and their twin always looking out for you. But you’ve always wanted more. You also love the great outdoors & love making things with scraps that you find.
Traits: Unflirty, Self-Absorbed, Freegan
Aspiration: Outdoor Enthusiast
Career: Freelancer (Crafter Branch)
Master Fabrication & Herbalism Skills
Visit Granite Falls once a week until you finish your aspiration
So, I’ve always been interested in challenges of the Not So Berry, especially others’ portrayal of the heirs and recreating the rules. The one version that I particularly enjoy is @sweetlysimss! So, because I enjoy NSB and wanted to have a go at it, I’ve decided that I’ve recreated the rules myself for others’ to enjoy if anyone is interested in trying it out.
Here are some personal rules that you can follow to help with the gameplay
Spouses don’t have to match the Heir. Their careers/appearances/etc. can be totally different from the Heir!
Have your game be set to a normal lifespan. I’ll allow a long lifespan but, normal lifespan would be more easier
Mods are allowed! I’ve learned that using mods improve gameplay ( sometimes ) so, I’ll allow you all to use mods while playing
Each Heir must represent the color of the generation. ( This can include Hair, Eyes, Clothes, etc. ) This also applies to Berry Sims
But without further adieu, here are the rules! In case anyone wants to tag the legacy then please use the tag #jinglenotsoberry or @ me so I can check out the founder ( + the heirs ). I hope you enjoy this and please let me know anything so that I can improve in the future.
