The Sims 4: 100 Baby Challenge
The Sims 4 Challenges are a great way to refresh gameplay if you’re waiting for an expansion to come out. The Sims 4 100 Baby Challenge is not for the faint-hearted though, as it involves giving birth to and raising 100 babies in as few generations as possible. Read here for a full rundown of the 100 Baby Challenge and its rules.
The Sims 4: 100 Baby Challenge: Objectives
The main objective of the 100 Baby Challenge is a simple concept, to deliver a sim and raise as many babies as possible. Players must get to 100 babies in as few generations as possible. As sims can only produce offspring during the young adult and adult life stages, this narrows the window of opportunity and creates an additional challenge.
Players tend to maximize their numbers by trying as many triplets and twins as possible. However, since you can only have a maximum of eight sims per household, the other aspect of the challenge is a quick turnaround. That means bringing your kids into the young adult stage of life and getting them out of the house as quickly as possible so you can make room for more babies to add to the tally.
This challenge is very popular among the sims community, with many YouTubers simmering and taking the challenge for “Let’s Plays”.
