@The_gh0stm4n , please edit as needed and place in the correct section? Thanks! Dedicated to Carlos 



Now onto how to find broken cc… I think this should eliminate the 50/50 method in most cases! I extensively use sims 4 studio (S4S) to create my cc. I have known there were cheats you could use in it, but not all of them so I requested a list from the admins. As of the latest release (1/27/2020) you can now use the cheat ‘help’ which displays a list of all the available cheats in S4S. There are lots in here, but there is one cheat you can use to debug your cc:
resource.find:
Locates the package containing a particular instance id in the Mods folder. ex. “resource.find 123456789”. Can be useful when a lastException.txt contains a resource instance of a piece of broken content.
So how this would work is you would take your lastexception file spit out by the game and use...
Code:
https://lastexception.com/


...to spit out what the errors are. You should get a resource number (or multiple) from this.
Open up sims 4 studio (ensure it is the latest version) and hit ctrl+shift+c, just like in sims, to pop up the cheat command window. Enter ’resource.find [enter resource number here]’ and it will tell you what package file it is. Then open your Mod Folder and delete the culprit.

I have tested this for about six hours and it has worked, every time I've used it. I Know it works with CC but I personally, keep all my Other Mods updated and I do not know if it will work for mods. 
This is definitely a Game Changer Hammertime

If it's going to be groundbreaking (the way that I suspect it will be), then the only suggestion I have is that you try and add a few extra screenshots detailing the process on what to do, @grieralexander. Smile

@The_gh0stm4an , I haven't been able to generate a last exception yet, so, if you have one laying around and can send it to me, it will expedite taking the first photos I need for the tutorial.

I got a couple last night, but they were not good, since they did not have instance numbers, due that the problems was an override of an animation by a script mod Facepalm However, I did get to pinpoint which mod was causing the problem.
