Hello,

I like to use alternating savegames, savegame1 and savegame2.
It's not really a solution because it doesn't prevent the error from occurring but it does prevent much loss of progress.

Hello,

Of course one of the best solutions to Error 12 is upgrading computer hardware. I just want to share that I have upgraded to 4 GB (having my graphics settings the same prior to RAM upgrade), which made Error 12 go away lol!

When I used moderately high quality graphics settings and played the game with them for a while, (having ErrorTrap installed), I had experienced one Error 12. So I lowered the graphics settings a bit, I did not encounter Error 12 again.

So another solution is to use not too high graphics settings. With having your computer meet up the optimal computer system requirements to run Sims 3, try to set all graphics setting to lowest. Uncheck "Enable Object Hiding" and "Enable Advanced Rendering". I think it's fine to use the highest screen resolution.

I hope this helps, because it did for me.

//EDIT

Also uncheck "Enable Reflections" if you want to ensure avoiding crashing or any errors. Do not uncheck "Enable Advanced Smoothing" because it increases the risk of the game crashing, especially on computers with entry level specs.

I have also observed that Error 12 is somewhat related to the computer's virtual memory. The higher RAM used while playing Sims 3, there'd be greater chance of crashing or related errors. Try to used Game Booster to temporarily close background programs and services that consume up too much RAM.
