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.
*UPDATE*
3rd December 2019 ~ I've included a NoStore version which removes the Artisan skill for the Ceramics club and replaces it with Sculpting. Only use ONE version, they will conflict with one another

More afterschool activities! The children and teens in town loved their new activities last time but they always want more! So here they are.

For these activities to show up in game, you'll need Nraas Careers Mod and Nraas Careers School. The activities work on patch 1.69.
Nine of these are available for teenagers and five are available for children. This means four of the activities are available for both. Details to be found below.

Technically speaking, only Generations is a must for these to show up. However certain skills won't be built if the correct Expansions Packs/Store Content isn't installed. For everything to work as intended, you will need Generations, World Adventures, Ambitions, Island Paradise, University and the Glassblowing Station from the Store.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

Why doesn't ceramics require the sculpting station, which actually uses the clay required to make ceramics?

I used the Artisan skill because of the 'firing' of the creations, which seemed to closest to what I was looking for. However, I can see what you're saying so I've uploaded a separate version that replaces the Artisan skill with the Sculpting, for those who might prefer that

These are so lovely, thank you so much! Quick question, though: Is this mod compatible with the other 6 awesome afterschool activities you've provided us with?

Has anyone else seen cases where the After School Activities completely vanish from the menus, making it impossible to enroll or sign up for an After School Activity?

Has your sim already got an afterschool activity? Or possibly two?
Alternatively, if it's a teenage sim, do they have a part time job? Most part time jobs (excluding my Saturday Jobs) will clash with afterschool activities, so if your teen has a job and it's NOT one of the Saturday ones, the afterschool activity option doesn't show up.

Hi, Is there anyway you could upload them separately so I can pick and choose the ones I want

For some reason, I have never actually seen a Sim gain Skills from any After School Activity other than the Ballet and Scouting. Ever. Am I doing something wrong?

I think the rates of skill gains are quite small in the activities; I can certainly have a look after the holidays at increasing them a touch Thanks for letting me know!
