[BY DESIGN] [GF] Unavailable Trending Typ

[ Edited ]
★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.47.51.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get Famous, Get to Work, Cats and Dogs, Seasons, Ctiy Living, Spa Day, Dine Out, Vampires, Jungle Adventure, Kids Room Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Study Trends at the The More Views Video Station to find out what type of videos are trending.
What happens when the bug occurs? The type of trending video can include video types that are unavailable if you don't have the corresponding content pack installed. (i.e. getting a Trend for Bowling videos without the Bowling Night Stuff Pack)
What do you expect to see? To only have trending videos that are possible with your current packs
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Get Famous, since the The More Views Video Station and trending videos came with it.

In the upper right you can see the currently trending video types.

Among the list, one of the trending video types is Bowling, which is an activity added by the Bowling Night Stuff pack, which I don't currently own.

It doesn't seem intended that the game should allow things from packs you don't have installed to be taking up one of the possible trending video type slots.

I'm being told that this is the intended design, and production wants to keep this as-is. Thanks so much for the report! Standard smile

Going to add this as needs input as I can't really test without disabling packs.

Hoping for some more voices
