I'm loving it!
I've actually never read about the black widow challenge so far, it seems quite harsh though enjoyable. Does that make me a bad person? :lol: I might try it one day!

Great start! I don't know if I could ever play this challenge, but it's so much fun to read other's attempts at it.

It's such a blast and so different from my usual play style that I'm loving it!

I'm loving your attempt at the BW challenge! I'm seeing a lot of familiar faces as well hehe. I love how you moved Nery in just to baby-sit Jasper while you and Jihoon were working. :tongue:

Awesome job so far. Can't wait for the next update. :D

It took Jihoon a little while. You have your first victim! :twisted:

Jasper is cute!

Your simself is meeting a ton of potential options.

You're moving right along with things.

Is going for all the deaths part of the challenge?

Yup! The point is to marry and kill 10 different sims. Some of the rules say to have a child with each of them and some don't, so I'm including that rule since I'm not doing a wedding party with each marriage. My goal is also to have my simself get caught cheating as many times as I can since that shows up in some of the rules as well.

Yaaaayy new update! About the Nery and blonde hair thing: apparently his true hair color is blonde (if you look at his picture on the sims wiki, you'll see that he has blonde eyebrows even though he's a redhead). So I guess Nery dyed his hair red?

Loved all the chaotic events that happened in Chapter 2! You're doing an awesome job with the challenge so far. I can't wait for the next installment. :D

Also, @108sims, the point of the black widow challenge is to just woo and kill as many sims as you'd like (I personally chose 10 like @simsterlyrock). There aren't a lot of rules or guidelines, which I love because that means you can pretty much play it however you want. For example, in my version of the challenge that I'm doing right now, the additional rules I gave myself are:
1) Having my Black Widow pop out a baby (or babies) for each baby daddy.
2) Building a mausoleum for the victims (including individual portraits).
3) The first letter of the children's names will be the same as their father's.
4) Giving my Black Widow a unique gene (I chose to give her alien eyes) to see if it will last until the end of the challenge/if all her kids will inherit it or not.

Here's a link to the original challenge rules if you're interested in giving it a go. ^^

I'm doing similar things! Marrying a guy, getting pregnant, getting caught cheating, killing him off, and moving on to the next guy! Babies also have a name starting with their dad's letter (so Nery's kid is Newton and if I married in Goopy his kid would have a G name).

The blonde hair thing is kinda annoying because I was hoping for a red-headed kid. :( Oh well, I've still got a chance! Just gotta find another red-headed townie to marry...

Spoiler:
It's interesting that there's some different rulesets for the challenges. I might give it a go if I'm ever in a sim killing mood.

That's a big stack of homework!

Yeah I can see the ghosts becoming more of a problem, the more you have.

Yay for having a girl!

Wow that was fast. (Well I don't know how long it took to get a satellite to fall in game, but it seemed fast).

I really love that you've been able to recreate sims 4 houses. I don't have enough patience with building for that. :lol:

@simsterlyrock I understand your pain! Almost all of my BW's kids have her brown hair even though I want a variety of hair colors. :( Jasper going straight to the console after school speaks to me on so many levels hahaha! The ghosts scaring everyone during the night really annoys me too. Especially when they do it to the poor kids. I discovered something in my latest chapter upload, though. You can click on the ghost and a pie-menu will pop up with two options: either you can set the ghost to only scare knowledge sims, or you can set the ghost to not scare anyone at all. Hope this helps. ^^ Yay for the first baby girl! Tina is sooooo cuteee! :hearts: And congrats on getting Jasper into private school! :party: Loving the house, by the way! Can't believe you're already at the halfway point. Good job! Looking forward to the next update. :grin:

@108sims Yeah, the original rules are pretty basic. That's why @simsterlyrock and I decided to come up with these additional rules for ourselves to make things more fun and challenging. If you ever do attempt this challenge, I'd be interested in reading it! :)

That thing about the ghosts is pretty cool! I didn't even know that was an option, but I'll definitely have to check it out next time I play.

And you're in luck, because I've got another update today! Part 4

Love that you're having the victims er dads do the toddler training.

I love how no one noticed dead Ryan on the ground at first and just kept heading for the fridge.

Poor Jasper. I'm sure he's ready to move!

Woo another girl!

I forgot how horrifying that swarm of flies is for death by flies.

@simsterlyrock Someone on my BW challenge thread mentioned something about the ghost pie-menu: they said they never got it because they couldn't click on ghosts at all. So I'm actually not sure if I the pie-menu was because of a mod in my game (I have lots of mods lol) or if it's in the game already and shows up only when you use the boolprop testingcheatsenabled true cheat (I always have that cheat activated when I play. It's a life-saver haha).

Also, regarding Chapter 4: Ryan casually dying while everyone nonchalantly prepares food has me rolling on the floor! :rotfl: For a Romance Sim Charlie seems to really enjoy taking care of the kids. Omg seeing Jasper become an adult and move out is kind of heartbreaking, but I understand the issue of too many Sims and ghosts in one lot.The cheating pictures are hilarious. Makes me wish I did more of that in my challenge, but I kept ignoring that rule in favor of trying to kill each Sim in a different way lol. 4 more deaths left! Woohoo! You're almost done! Can't wait for part 5. I really enjoyed this update. :D

For some reason Nerry's ghost coming out of the sink was really funny to me. :lol:

Good thing your simself got married when she did since she was just about to give birth!

Clarence's face when he caught you cheating was great.

Poor Claire. At least she's cute?
