What do you mean by "I hope we get answers?" Standard smile

EA does not support mods, and you need to remove or update your mods when they are no longer compatible with the game. If you really don't want that, you can inactivate updates and then you won't have to update your mods either. But then you will not be able to add more packs or get the free content that sometimes comes in updates (toddlers in the beginning of 2017). But it's your own choice, most creators update their mods when they become incompatible so you just have to re-download them.

Did you follow my tips in the post above yours?

 

Merry Christmas! High five

This same exact thing is happening to me right now, I put all my cc in and I click the play botton and it won’t let me play, I take it all out and it does let me play! What do I do?!

If you want to keep your mods, you can try some different things to sort out the ones not working:

  • If your problem occurred after a certain mod haul, remove all these new mods (see if the game works), and then add back a few at a time, restarting the game in between until you see the problem occurring again. Remember that you can possible have several broken mods.
  • If the problem started after the latest patch/update, always make sure to update your mods when you update your game. Check this list out for some mods that were broken in the C&D-patch! A few others have been broken after but not so many that there is a list.

  • Download Sims 4 Studio and do batch-fixes for your cc.
  • Search for the Mod Conflict Detector on google and run it, see if it can detect some broken/conflicting mods, remove these and try your game again. (Only detects conflicts between mods, not between mods and the game)
  • Like the first "solution", but for all your mods. Remove all and put back some at a time to find broken ones (last resort if you have like 1000 mods).

Good Luck!

Then you might have some work ahead of you :/
Good luck, I hope you find the ones not working fast. If you go though my list above you might find some faster, otherwise the 50/50 method will find the broken ones even though it takes time!
Start with script mods, them mods that change gameplay, then cc.

I had the same thing. I took it out in sections. I would take all the a out and then see if it worked then I found out it was something that started with a s. It takes time but turns out I had accidently put a Sims 3 mod in there.
