Error 12 is pretty typical on 32bit systems where RAM is more limited than on a 64bit machine. You may be able to fix your issue by allowing Windows to allocate more space as virtual ram. Read this for more information on how to do that: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Change-the-size-of-virtual-memory

That is some situation you have there. I was experiencing lag the past couple days ever since I put in the World Adventures expansion. I was able to find help here for the lag. http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t4692-game-lag-possible-fixes In suggestion #1 there is an orange link for "overwatch" and other tips for you as well. Hopefully this helps you out.

Some small tips that might help reduce these save-errors:

1) you could close unnecessary background processes (with the task-manager) and your anti-virus software, which might cause problems when it updates the same time you are saving.

2) I've heard that having too many items in your sim's inventory can cause problems; you should either sell unnecessary items or store them elsewhere (in the refrigerator, toy box, alchemist's desk or whatever).

3) I don't know if you have Seasons plus the latest patch installed, but if you do, then you can turn off the sim's "memories" in the options menu (you know, all these pictures in that album with texts like "your sim has learned a skill" or "your sim got burned the first time")...
If you don't you can either delete these pictures manually or use a mod (like MasterController).

4) Shorten your playing sessions ! That is, you should save more often, like every half of a sim's day or less.

5) Defragment your hard-drive.

6) Cache deleting might help too: Go to Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete the following:
CASPartCache.package
compositorCache.package
scriptCache.package
simCompositorCache.package
socialCache.package

...and all Files in the following folders:
WorldCaches
Thumbnails
DCBackup
(delete everything but not the ccmerged.package)


Hope I could help a bit..

Virtual ram is virtual - not real. It's hard drive space acting as ram. Anyhow, removing the TravelDB file gave me an idea.

- Back up your save (manually or with the tool linked below)
- Get my Save Game Manager: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t9449-ts3-save-game-manager-beta-new-year-release
- Run the program
- Click the "Utilities" button the the left
- Click the "Clean SNAPs" button
- Select your save and click OK
- Try playing again and let us know the result.
