Have you considered following @iixv21's advice of sorting the files by date and removing the ones you installed during your 'cc shopping'? You can read their experience in her post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/My-Sims-4-game-won-t-open/m-p/6125390/highlight/true#M8310
If the issue is having incompatible custom content installed, then there's no way of knowing how much you will need to remove. You will to keep removing until you find and remove the cc causing the issue.

I hope you find the problem soon!

Hey all! If you ever encounter this issue again, take everything from your mod folder and move it to a temporary placement. Then, see if the game runs without it. If it does, it means something in your CC/mods is no longer working. A great way to determine which ones are causing this, is by downloading the Mod Conflict detector!

This will show you exactly what is causing the issue, and you can easily delete the items, just like that! Let me know if it helped any of you.
