Check for updates to your Mods and CC. Add it back a little at a time while testing until you have found all that are broken.
The August 2021 "small update" for Sims 4 has completely broken my game. My household is gone. Half of my cities are gone. I cannot start a new game (even after downloading & installing the expansion I've been wanting) When I try to start a new game with new sims they're all invisible. Help please.

and repair the game: open your Origin game library, right-click on the Sims 4 icon, and select Repair.
