My Sims 4 won’t work after I start the game! What do I do now?

★★★★ Novice

After downloading my daily dose of cc, my sims 4 won’t get pass the title screen. I’ve been trying to get into the game for 3 hours now, which is ridiculous. I’ve repaired the game, restarted my laptop, and even updated the game, but nothing is working. What do I do now? Thank you!

After each patch or pack, the part of CC and most of the mods script are incompatible with the game. The price for having CC and mods is checking of mods folder when the game breaks.

Move the mods folder to the desktop.
Delete localthumbcache.package file in the game folder - important!
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 and check if a game is working now without mods and CC.
Check if there are new updated versions of the mods and CC you are using.
Then copy from desktop your mods and CC and paste it in the new mods folder. First, paste script mods one by one 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. ( divide your CC into smaller batches for example 50 pieces in one subfolder and check these subfolders one by one)
You need to find a culprit and either remove it or replace it with an updated version
