After 1 Sim day all of the Sages Changed

I sent my first Sim to the Realm of Magic, he became a Caster, and then went home. He came back the next day, and all of the pre-made Sages were gone and replaced with random townies... He only spoke to one of the originals, and they are still in his Relationship panel... Are they just filling in while the others sleep, or did the game just randomly replace them for no reason?

    The one mention I've seen was someone using a mod that gives unplayed Sims jobs. Do you perhaps use a mod like that? And do the original Sages currently have jobs now that they've been replaced?

    Do you have MCCC? If you have the relevant settings switched on, MCCC periodically marries unplayed sims and moves them in together. It could have married off the sages ad moved them in with their new spouses.

    For this reason I have flagged all of the sages with MCCC for no marriage.

    This sounds like how TS4 frequently makes new role Sims and assigned new Sims to roles even when unneeded, when too soon, however this sounds way too fast for any lifespan.

    Maybe the NPC generation for this role is not functioning right/buggy ... but then I'd expect to see this in a lot of games.

    Or perhaps it wants backups for when the original sages are busy, and made them already, and since they are there, is calling for them. Did you check to see if the OG Sages kept their status? Sims 4 likes to generate extra Sims this way. (ETA: I re-read your post; it's probably this. They're filling in.)

    OR... Perhaps you have a lot of Sims and a mod or setting to prevent culling? I found the game assumed Sims were culled and needed replacement, when 0 Sims were culled and I needed no Sims. New Sim generation continued at lightning speed for me well after the devs gave us the option in game to preserve a lot of Sims.

    But perhaps it is something else entirely.

    Yeah, I've seen a couple of different sages that aren't the main three. But the main three are always there, so I assume that there's a rule of two with them. As with the Sith, there's a master and an apprentice or something. so when say Morgyn isn't in the magic realm, his apprentice steps in to take over as sage until he comes back.

    Yeah, with one of my saves the game moved all 3 of the original sages into houses because I forgot I had "fill empty homes" ticked on. >_< So frustrating.

    Not even surprised. The consignment store guy in Strangerville did the same for me.

    My main three sages always seem to be there. No mods or cc here. They don't seem to sleep either (I put in a bed). Living in Glimmerbrook sometimes I see them walking but when I notice them they are either spawning in behind my lot (I selected where the bar was to live), coming to knock on my door (good friends), or walking toward the portal. I don't go there and look immediately though, sometimes I go to another area and buy stuff ect before heading to HQ so maybe I've missed them arriving or something.

    Ditto above, my 3 sages are always there too

    Edit: Yeah sorry, I though I'd better add I don't use mods or cc either

    One of my sages has been made a gardener, is there a way to take this away? She’s wearing the outfit and everything it’s rather annoying

    Thanks for all of the responses! I did have MCCC installed at the time, so maybe it was one of the options in there. I've reverted my save for now to see if it happens again.

    Try flagging the sages for no marriage with MCCC. If it was MCCC’s fault that should sort it.

    I have no mods or CC. However, my NPC for untamed magic suddenly changed to a different character and now it's like that NPC never existed. He's never there, he's gone from my Sim's relationship pannel. I don't understand.
