I do notice out of the notes you posted that your card is recognized. Name (database): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti [Found: 1, Supported: 1] This is what your looking for in the Config.log

Here's a few troubleshooting tips to try to get the game to start.

1. Move the mods folder to desktop (for testing purposes) - This is to fully make sure it's not outdated mods/cc or some hidden files in the Mods folder. - Read more in the post linked below:

How to Fix Problems with Mods/CC

We recently received a new game patch that has made some game mods and custom content become outdated. You need to go through your mods folder to see what needs to be updated.

2. Deactivate Origin In-Game - Open Origin, Go up to the Origin Menu, Click Origin and select Application Settings. Select the Origin In-Game tab. Make sure it is turned Off. - This deactivates Origin In-Game, as it has been known to cause problems with games.

3. Start the game in Windowed mode -- In the Origin Client, go to the Game Library Tab, and right click on the Sims 4 Cover and select Game Properties - In the Command Line Arguments, add the following text: -w and click Okay. If that doesn't work try: -w und

4. Repair Game  - In Origin, right-click on Sims 4 and select Repair. - Do note this repairs the game's install files. It does not make any changes to the saved game files. - Saved games are safe - won't be deleted.

5. Delete Game Cache Files (What and How-To)

The localthumbcache.package can be found in the main Sims 4 folder
C:\Users\Username\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

6. Try a Sims 4 Factory Reset - (What & Howto)
