100 years isn't too difficult once you know how to deal with radiation and are good at timing breeding to avoid certain death.
the challenges are significantly more difficult - you're going to want to keep restarting till the final couple set of challenges are reasonable (some are FAR harder than others). odds are, by the time you're solid enough to accomplish all challenges, the 100 years will be a relative cakewalk.
there's certainly no need to 'cheat' it in anyway, though i'm not really sure what you meant by that anyway. both are perfectly doable.
I did it with porcupine first, it wasn't so bad. I'm talking about the 100 years. The challenges were a bitch to do if you got the kill 35 animals or 5000 something calories on the last part since that is when dinosaurs start spawning. Thankfully the sewers are there.
There is a way to "cheat" the game. With the dogs you can just cheat the 100 year thing by finding two water sources relatively close and just going back and forth.
For the challenges you can just restart until you find some easy ones for the last part of the challenges.
