@Katrus91 As I've said before, if it's played households, it's def a bug, that's why I'm asking.

Unplayed households can turn into spellcasters, that's not a bug but played and my household ones shouldn't

This: https://answers.ea.com/t5/General-Discussion-and-Feedback/Townies-randomly-becoming-Spellcasters/m-p... should have a bug thread here.

If it's not non-played Sims, it's by design that they can become spellcasters but I'm unsure of the exact rules.

@crinrictI've created 24 sims (the majority are spellcasters the rest are humans) for the sole purpose of the game leaving my played households alone. I have 113 households (that's 372 sims) marked as favorites/played; 13 of those sims are spellcasters. Counting the 3 sages, that's 40 spellcasters in all, yet the game still draws from the 113 favorites/played.

 

Edit: After re-reading that, it sounded a little snarky. That wasn't my intent, sorry if it came off that way.

I created a new bug report for this cause it shouldn't happen to played/faved households.

 

Merged some posts in here that were clearly about that.

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] [ROM] Played/Faved households becoming spellcasters on their o

I've had this happen to three favorited sims. All of them were marked unplayed though, but still in My Households category, and marked favorite. Majority of the sudden spellcaster transformations are within unplayed and unfavorited types, as they should, but can definitely confirm that being a favorite does not protect an unplayed sim 100% from becoming a spellcaster. Tricksy to change back when it's within households that I can't login to fix, like the household that has my unplayed vets, or a household that is the npc staff of a restaurant, since logging them in would make them lose their jobs.

Those having faved but otherwise unplayed households becoming Spellcasters...do you suppose that they have to be played AND living on an actual Lot (as opposed to "Currently not in world") to be passed over for that? Thinking

 

EDIT: Sorry for the attached file! It's meant for the Feedback topic on this.

Oh, sorry, I must've gotten confused about which thread I was in.

I recently got this pack. Tested it for a while (in test saved) and the same issue appeared. The unplayed household becoming spell casters. I'm just wondering, if this is default by design, would it be possible that they give us an option to toggle off or on who we want to be spell casters. I don't dare to check on my current saved file because I don't want anyone and everyone becoming spell casters. Else, can I avoid this by not visiting Glimmerbrook or the Magic realm at the moment?
