This honestly just happened to me and I managed to fix it by looking through some mods I had put in the game today. I had a lot of cc and mods I wanted and I didn't want to delete them all of course. So I sorted through all my files and right clicked on them and then clicked on sort by date and I saw everysingle one I put in on today and pulled them out . And my game started perfectly. So id say for anyone else just try taking out a couple mods . I even kept 3 so know I have to find this bad boy that caused the problem that's luckly not In the game anymore Standard smile I love mods and cc just have to figure out the safe ones happy simming Standard smile

Hi @MEG1020,

 

Have you considered following @iixv21's advice of sorting the files by date and removing the ones you installed during your 'cc shopping'? You can read their experience in her post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/My-Sims-4-game-won-t-open/m-p/6125390/highlight/true#M8310

Hi @peachyvirgo,

 

If the issue is having incompatible custom content installed, then there's no way of knowing how much you will need to remove. Frown You will to keep removing until you find and remove the cc causing the issue.

I hope you find the problem soon!

Hey all! If you ever encounter this issue again, take everything from your mod folder and move it to a temporary placement. Then, see if the game runs without it. If it does, it means something in your CC/mods is no longer working. A great way to determine which ones are causing this, is by downloading the Mod Conflict detector! [Edited by EA_Mai: links to third party software not allowed]

This will show you exactly what is causing the issue, and you can easily delete the items, just like that! Let me know if it helped any of you.

Happy simming!
