And I love the cc I got does anyone have a solution for me and if so PLEASE awnser back I need help! also if it is the cc I got any suggestions on where else to get maxis match?

After each patch or pack, part of the CC and many mods are no longer compatible with the game. Every time you have to check them if they're still good. This is the price that you have to pay for having CC. Continuous checking if it still works.
You probably downloaded old CC or mods that do not work anymore.
It is best to choose CC which were published not long ago.

How to check it
Move the mods folder to the desktop.
Delete localthumbcache.package file in the game folder
Fix the game in Origin.
Origin/Library -right click on TS4 - option "Repair game"
You have to wait until Origin will fix all packs, not only the base game.
Turn on the game to create a new, empty mods folder. Check if a game is working now without mods.
Then copy from desktop your mods and CC and paste it in the new mods folder. First, paste script mods every time checking if the game is OK. Do the same with CC but if you have a lot of this, try the 50/50 method

Thank you before I saw that I deleted some of my cc and it worked again. But now its the skin detail column that I don't have anymore.

Some outdated CC caused it.
Try doing the factory reset of the game folder as described in this post:
