If any of your mods is throwing exceptions, that means there's something very wrong and that may impact other mods aswell. Make sure you updated all your mods to the current version of the game, and remove all the ones that the creators didn't update. This list from SimsVip shows a lot of the mods that are compatible, and the ones that are broken by the new patch.
Also, as stated in the mod page, Direct Controls is currently conflicting with TwistedMexi's mod that lets you use freecam while in build mode. Do you happen to have that one installed in your game?
