This download is a custom career. This means that you will need the NRaas Careers mod installed in order to use the download in your game.
So, your young Sims are returning to school after their winter break and are demanding some new activities to take part in at school, are they? Well, I know mine have been! So, after the success of my Sporting Activities, I decided to create some new activities for your child and teenage sims!

*NOTE*
If you were receiving script errors relating to missing scoring on the activities, download the latest Story Progression, since a small typo was causing the issue Thanks to Lizbethbear for reporting

11/06/13 ~ Updated to include Thai translation.

*Note about Turkish download: The game doesn't actually support Turkish (there are no strings available for it), so I've added a separate download for those who want the activities in Turkish, I've replaced the English strings with Turkish. So only download that file if you want it in Turkish

Now, on to the technical side!

For the clubs to show up, you need Twallan's Careers Mod and Twallan's Careers Schools Mod.
3 of the activities are for both Children and Teens and 3 are for Teens only. All can be joined by visiting the school rabbithole and on the computer.
The activities are all in English, but I'll include translation instructions at the end.
All the activities require Generations to show up.
If Late Night is installed, the Sims will build their hidden Club Dancing skill at Dance Club.
If Showtime is installed, the Sims will build their hidden Pool skill at the Gamers Club.
However, these two expansions are not essential and the clubs will still work without them installed.
These are compatible with patch 1.42-1.63.

Translating

I've included the Language Strings for those of you wanting to translate into other languages.
To translate, download the Language_Strings file and open it up in Notepad.

<KEY>Gameplay/Excel/Careers/CareerList:Example</KEY>
<STR>Translate This Text<STR>

Do that for the entire file.
I'll be happy to include translations but I'm not fluent enough in any other languages, so any help would most definitely be appreciated If you send me the translated file, I can include it
I've fully tested these and they work for me, but if you do have any issues, please don't hesitate to let me know

Additional Credits: S3PE awsomegirl for her suggestions for some of the clubs
Twallan for his Careers mods!

Age: Teen
Career Type: Realistic
Chance cards: None

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Late Night Generations Showtime

You need to be a Registered Member to be able to download from MTS. Registration allows you to thank and leave comments for the creators, see your download history, participate in the discussions and much more!

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
