Default Sim Berries challenge
Sim Berries challenge
A colorful legacy challenge themed after in-game harvestable berries.

1. Each generation is signified by an in-game berry, try to include as much of its designated color scheme in your sim’s appearance and home.
2. You may assign any trait that has a noticeable amount of the gen’s theme color in their icon (over three traits and custom traits allowed!). For example, the “Mean” trait icon makes sense for Strawberry (red) and Cowberry (white), but the droplets of spit aren’t enough to qualify for Blueberry (blue). Rainbow gen traits need at least three colors in their icon.
3. To complete a generation you need to finish at least one aspiration from the assigned category and reach the top of one career as well as accomplish their special task.

In retrospect I should've probably themed the colors around flowers or crystals or anything other than berries, knowing that NSB is one of the most popular challenges and thus mine will be directly compared with it...
The berry-theme was supposed to be in reference to berry sims, aka rainbow legacies, that were immensely popular in TS3.

The similarity to NSB begins and ends with each generation being themed around a color, that's about it (akin to the less popular Garden Legacy, Bobba Tea legacy, Seven Deadly Sins etc). After completing NSB myself I wanted to create a flexible template for my future rainbow legacies, one without a rigid storyline to follow and without repeating shades (orange and peach, mint and green).
