Then you need to test which one is causing the error.

Try to find the custom content that's causing the issue.

Custom content can be faulty or outdated. So if you get this error, you either downloaded something outdated or something that never worked in the first place or a recolor without the mesh.

 

You need to narrow down what could be the issue. There's several Mod conflict detector programs at Modthesims (just google) that can help you find the faulty one They don't always recognize everything though so if they don't find anything, you need to go through your custom content manually to find the guilty party.

You've replied to multiple people on this issue but it hasn't worked. I've reinstalled my game three times, renamed the folder and tested all my mods/cc. My game was bought through origin and it's not like I can buy it again, since my parents bought it for me.
