Advice for everyone who can't use building mode in spite of the mods removed.

Go to Documents/ElectronicArts - inside will be The Sims4 folder
Step 1. Rename The Sims4 folder to "The Sims4 old"
Step 2. 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.
Step 3. Turn on the game - a new game folder will be created and you will have two - one old, one new
Step 4. Check if you still have this problem in the newly created game folder.
If the problem disappeared
Step 5. Delete in the new game folder following folders:
"saves" and Tray.
Step 6. Go to "The Sims 4 old" folder and copy - your "saves " folder.
Step. 7, Paste this folder in a newly created game folder.
Step 8. Do the same with Tray folder and TrayDeleteItems file
Step 9. Check if there are newly updated version mods you are using.
Then copy and paste your mods and CC from old mods folder to the new one. First copy the scripts mods every time checking if the game is working properly. If you have a lot of CC try 50/50 method ( divide your CC into smaller batches for example 50 pieces in one subfolder and check these subfolders one by one)
Step. 10. Launch the game and check if this problem also disappeared in this old save. However, it may happen that although the new saves will not have this error anymore, the old save will remain damaged.
The last step - delete The Sims4 old folder.
Your saves and library will be not changed or damaged
By the way. If it will be work save the game option "Save as .. number " - not "Save and Quit".

I didn't have the problem with my mods folder removed. The game works without it, and I am slowly reintroducing my favorite mods to see what the problem package is. Probably something lot related.

@LeeQuiring
I suspect UIC Extention mod. It is broken, but there is a new version

@kreatoraI have confirmed this is what is breaking my game (UI Cheats Extension). But I can't find an update.

@QueenoftheSalts

Have you read my answers above?
Have you moved your mods folder to the desktop? Did you delete localthumbcache.package file and all folders with the word cache in the name?
And if it didn't help, did you have done the factory reset of the game folder as is described above?
Please stop to be frustrated and do it!

Okay so I've followed all of these as well ad chased down all these programs and files and the 50/50 and the problem remains. I'm currently completely uninstalling origin and sims 4 and reinstalling it in hopes that it changes my results. I've for sure updated all my mods after the updates/patches. So hopefully this helps as I'm exhausted of this for almost a week now.

so UI cheats was not my problem, but WW did start the problem, and then it continued even after removal till i totally closed origin.

it looks like it was causing the game to freeze in a reload of the live mode.

WW did an update though that has seemingly solved the problem so far, but i'm still sorting through my CC and such to get back to my game play!
