Default My witches can't cast spells!
Every time I make a witch (be it through CAS, the witches Brew, or treeag's sim transformer) the game seems to know they're a witch because it gives them a wand and a magic meter, but every time I select 'attempt to cast spell' on the wand it fails and says my sim needs to become a witch. Is there anything I can do to fix this? It's irritating me to no end.

You can't cast spells till you've leveled up your hidden witch skill a bit by "playing with magic". More spells unlock with each level.

It isn't there for some reason. Now I'm worried.

Is your sim *actually* a Witch ?

There are numerous reports of the CAS occult not transferring properly into the game. So your sim may not actually be a witch at all.

Use [MasterController Cheats]' "Intermediate \ Occult" interaction and set the Witch occult that way.

Okay I did that and it says "has" so I assume the sim is actually a witch. It still isn't there.

Is it hidden behind the More button on the pie menu when you click on your sim?

There is no more button. The options are: "cell phone..., change outfit..., and NRaas"

I wonder why I have so much stuff on my sim? I actually have a More button and on my Witch sim the Play With Magic was behind there, so I couldn't find it in the beginning.

It all depends on what traits the sins have from my experience. I'm getting really disheartened because I got this expansion for the witches.

Oh, there is also a Witch hidden trait called Spellcasting. Have you looked with the MC using Change Traits?

Are all your mods up to date?

I tried that too, but not in a new save file. Does that make a difference?

Try this: (I had the same problem)

Using the LATEST treeag SimTransformer...cure your Sims of any Supernatural States, then use "testingcheatsenabled true," Shift click them to edit them in Create-A-Sim, and change them to your choice supernatural there. THEN use the SimTransformer to change them to the same super-state and they should convert properly. (Sort of an "Undo-Redo" kind of fix.)

Just did that, didn't work and also reset his age.









Here are some pictures of the magic meter and Ralph in another sim's relationship panel. I still can't make him do anything remotely magical.
