This troubleshooting guide is for those who are on pc. Before you proceed, make sure to backup your important files first.

1) MODS NOT SHOWING UP. There are instances when mods don't show up in game because they are disabled in Game Options/Other. Here's how to enable them. If you have enabled them a couple of times and they keep getting disabled, try this.

If you have an active cloud storage like OneDrive, check if the files are there. Backup those files and disable/uninstall OneDrive.

2) LAGGING, CRASHING, NOT LOADING, LOADING FOREVER. Some errors in the game can be solved by clearing the cache, so try this first before doing the steps below.

Loading forever is an indication of a corrupt save. Try a Factory Reset.

3) MOD-RELATED ISSUES. Most of the time, issues in the game are mod-related.  So, just to rule it out, take out all of your mods and CCs, delete the localthumbcache.package file, run your game on a new save (not an existing save) and observe.

If the game runs fine, then it means it is indeed mod-related.  Now to find the culprit, you can do the following:

Using the tools here

A) If the issue happened after a game update, check the status of mods/CCs and redownload those that were considered safe to use or have been updated. Look into those you recently installed first if the issue appeared after you installed them. If you don't find the mod in the list, go to the website where you got it and check if the creator has updated it or cleared it for use.
B) Otherwise, Scan your game to find broken mods / CCs;
C) If that doesn't work, try to batch update your CCs;
D) If that still doesn't give you good results, try the 50/50 cleaning method:

If your game still acts up even playing vanilla, it could mean your user data may have been corrupted. Try any of the following fixes:

1) Do a Factory Reset;
2) Repair your game (
Make sure there are no mods/CCs in your Mods folder before you do this so as not to corrupt you saves);

Good luck!
