After School Activity List is blank!

★★ Novice

I downloaded Parenthood extension pack via Origin yesterday but I noticed a bug. My child Sim wants to attend after school activities and I click the proper section via Phone but the list is fully blank and nothing appears.

 

Any solution?

Currently Sims 4 after school activities are Scouts (Seasons) and Drama Club  (Get Famous).
Do you own these packs and still do not see them under the job/career tab on the phone?
Testing on a vanilla (no mods/cc) folder is the best way to investigate causes of issues.

@EuphorialQueen Hi, thank you for your answer! I only own university life and parenthood so afterschool activities don’t work if I don’t have the other packs you mentioned? Or should i try second option even if i dont have these packs?

If you do not own those packs (Seasons or Get Famous) your child or teen Sim should not want "to attend after school activities".
I presume you are seeing this as a whim? Are you using mods of custom content of any kind?
That could cause this unexpected whim.

I am having the same issue, and no it's not a whim. I clicked on the phone and noticed "join after school activity" but quickly realized it's blank. I have parenthood and university, but not seasons or get famous. Odd that it is showing up if I can't utilize it.

Could either of you create a bug report in the bug forum for this ?

@kikamo089 For afterschool activities for kids you'll need get famous and/or season otherwise there are none availble.

The tab shouldn't really be available in the first place when you don't own the packs I think. There's another thread on this somewhere.

I'll merge later.
