I know you will hate me saying this but really: Try to think of the expansion(s) you feel you can't do without, and ditch the rest. 
When I was on my ancient machine, I ran the game with just Seasons, Pets and Ambitions. Eventually I added Generations and that was the last it could handle. I didn't use a lot of mods either, just the ones I felt were essential. (it still lagged, but the crashing was acceptable)
If you can't run the game without it crashing all the time, and you can solve it, that will greatly enhance your experience.


Having said that, on my current machine (which is well over recommended system requirements) the game will still crash every so often. That's just the "The Sims" games, unfortunately.

I guess it's the (pets expansion), 3 days ago, i was playing and everything was fine, it was opened for like 6-7 hours, and when i put i lot that came with that EP, it crashed. Or when i play with a household with a pet, also, the saves were in the world of that EP, i guess i didn't notice that earlier because i didn't play with it so much.

It's possible that Pets are indeed the problem.
If you install the Pets expansion, the game starts generating stray pets, wild horses, deer and raccoons. These animals are going around the neighbourhood in the background, so to speak. They get stuck in bad routing just as Sims do, and that can get too much to process.
You can turn off animal spawning completely with a mod, this one right here.
Please try that, and see if you notice any improvement Smile
