Since I don't go into options very much I'm not sure how long this has been like this. Screenshot attached. The headers are just white boxes where text should be. Other PC players I talk to regularly see the same thing. I am checking with a console friend as well and will update if she gets back to me.

★★ Guide
@ravencoal After you removed your mods, did you delete the localthumbcache file in the Sims 4 folder? If not, try that.

@rlc77  Hi, yes, I always delete the cache files when I make any changes to my mods folder, including removing it to test. I should have mentioned that in my original post. I honestly don't know why I didn't.
