I'd also like to note, this started happening only after I installed the newest update for sims 4 today (26/09/2014)

I'm having this same issue. I originally bootcamped my Mac but I had to get rid of it for space reasons. I then decided to do Parallel instead and the game was working fine. I wanted to install a few mods that I had kept on the USB and transfer them over but It continues to crash and give me this long error. But when I take the mod folder out it works fine. Can anyone help me?

Probably something in your mods folder not being compatible.

 

YOu need to find out what it is.

I'm getting the same error, but only if I try to put cc in the mods folder. This wasn't happening until my game updated. I hope EA fixes this soon. Is there a way to revert back to the older version before the update?

Hi, my error was:

 

Unable to start

Cannot start because required game data is missing or damage. Please try reinstalling the game.

 

My problem was a file i downloaded from TSR. I am still trying to figure out what is the .package that is causing the error but in my case, is not a problem with Origin nor the game. I guess it is a type of crash based on a corrupted custom file.

 

The best thing is to have diferent folders from the sites you download custom .package, in the Mods folder, so you can take them out of the game until you figure out which file is the one having the problem and report it to the creator.

 

Hope it helps!

Its everything in the mods folder not being compatable!

 

Game runs without anything in it. And it wont run with any CC in it.
