All right, so berry-sims aren't everyone's cup of tea. To be honest, they aren't really my thing either. But I have been needing a little change of pace lately. So I thought I'd give it a shot.

This little berry was inspired by the Juniper berry (yes, I know it is not technically a true berry!) Historically used for a range of medicinal purposes, Juniper berries are now primarily used as a spice as well as the flavoring for gin. DRY Soda Company produces a Juniper Berry soda, which is one of my personal favorites. The sim is named after a classic cocktail, The Gin Rickey, which is made from gin, lime and seltzer (and thus her bubbly personality!)

About the Sim
Virginia "Gin" Rickey is a vivacious go-getter. Being an incurable optimist, her glass is always more than half-full and that is just the way she likes it. She is highly intelligent with a wide range of interests. Her willingness to try new activities makes her seem adventurous, but it is really her tendency towards restlessness that drives her inconsistency. Her current passions are split between the medical profession and her innate talents in the kitchen.

And as a non-berry...

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
