Just figured to post here to let people know if they aren't in the discord....
I found a bit of a "cheat" to cut time while working on Ghost WooHoo % this week that involves over-exerting Elder sims with WooHoo-ing them to death that will likely make more consistently fast, possibly even race-viable runs for the Black Widow category...
I'm going to make some attempts at them later this week for PB/WR chasing and after I get a rhythm down of how to integrate this quick-kill into the route, I'll try to post a guide for it.
I've also found that "Cry it Out" typically lowers the time you mourn the dead spouse by 1 hour, so a total of 48 "Cry It Out" uses (or so, since with 3x speed it's hard to know how many hours just naturally pass from a few runs) can get you back on the horse to search for the next "mark" as it were...
And yes, if you can get winter with expansions, you probably can go even faster than by selecting an elder and making them woohoo till they die of a heart attack
