After all, if you’re trying to fill in time while you wait for The Sims 5 or a remaster of the Sims 2 to arrive, why not try creating a family of Keanu Reeves clones, raising a child that looks a bit like Voldemort, or using the clubs system to facilitate some morally dubious practices.
One such means of spicing up a playthrough is by attempting the 100-baby challenge, as one player on Reddit has successfully completed and, in the process, created a rather unique family tree.
Have you ever encountered this Sims bug?
Their feat is the subject of a recent thread in the subreddit r/thesims, which began with a post from the player themselves, user Evenstar_GW, who shared a number of images showing all of the sims belonging to their 100 baby family along with a link to their family tree and captioned these: “One mom and 46 dads make 100 kids - 100 baby challenge completed.”
A number of their fellow Sims stans were left rather concerned for the mother’s health following all of this exertion, with user Tend3roniJabroni saying: “Get that woman an ice pack for Christ's sake.” and k1rage asking: “Is.... is she ok?”
Thankfully, Evenstar_GW was able to allay their concerns somewhat by revealing: “She is fine, don't worry, she’s even got nice abs now that she has the time to train (in) wellness through Yoga a bit, (plus) she even had kid 101 with the love of her life.”
Meanwhile, a couple of other users shared their own tales from trying to complete the challenge, with Prestigious_Note2877 saying: “I got to like 30 something kids before I had to uninstall and reinstall my game, so I lost my progress.” and Busy-Flamingo-6396 revealing that they’d only managed to do it by having four different women get busy with 59 fathers.
If you fancy giving the challenge a go yourself, you can find a detailed set of rules for it here, which also cover how any add-on packs you might own can factor into proceedings.
