Today I have very sad news to share with you all - one of our long term members, Mootilda, had been ill with cancer for some time. On Monday 1st September she was admitted to hospital and died peacefully on Tuesday morning. This announcement post gives us the opportunity to share our condolences with her family and to remember her for all the great mods she made for us, and more importantly, to remember her for her great character and her kindness in helping others.

Mootilda was a highly respected member of the community and could frequently be found helping out in modding discussions and help forums. She was an accomplished programmer who loved to share her knowledge with others as well as being a site helper here on MTS for a number of years, and contributed extensively to the site and the community.

Mootilda - we will miss you, rest in peace.

I will always remember Mootilda as a no-nonsense person with a genuinely kind heart. She helped me when I was new to the site and I always enjoyed reading her replies and of course using the great mods she made for us. Whenever I play my game or visit this site I shall remember her.

OMG this is very sad! She was amazing with her work on the lot mover, and I spent quite a bit of time working with her. :(

Oh my God, that's really awful.

Dear Mootilda, we will all miss you so very much!
You were always helpful and nice.
I hope you will now find peace.

My heart goes out to the family.

Oh wow. I've never really known her, nor her creations, but I'm glad to hear she died peacefully. Cancer can lead to an awful death.
Rest in peace, fellow Simmer.

Oh my gosh, how awfully sad. Mootilda was always so patient, talented and a truly creative problem solver. A huge loss to the sims community, and I am sure to the world in general. She will be sadly missed. My thoughts are with her family.

Oh my gosh how awful. She was a very integral part in keeping the community and the Sims 2 afloat. She was amazing.
I only knew her a little and I'm really sad. You will be missed Mootilda.

I didn't know her, I just knew of her from her creations, and I just want to send my condolences to the family because watching someone suffer from cancer is horrible. My mother died four months ago from cancer, so this just really affected me on a extremely personal level, and I'm so very sorry for the what the family must be going through right now. I will be praying for their comfort and strength through this very sad time...

Mootilda, I'll always remember you not only as a talented modder but also as incredibly kind, patient, friendly and ready-to-help-anyone person. You're one of the most nicest people I've ever met online, and I feel terribly sorry and regretful for never telling you that before.

Rest in Peace, dear Mootilda. My sincere condolence to your family.

Oh, gosh. Mootilda was such a talented, helpful person, and she's made so many fantastic contributions to Sims 2 modding. I'm so very sad to hear she's died; she's certainly left a legacy in terms of making TS2 an ever more amazing game. Many jedi hugs for her loved ones.

I've never really known her, I just saw some posts with this cute little avatar http://www.modthesims.info/customavatars/avatar589252_3.gif with the blue name next to it writing nice things and now I'm left speechless. It is always a terrible tragedy when a fellow Simmer passes away. It's even a greater loss when such a talented person leaves the community saddened that no further creations will ever be released to make us all happier and bond us together. May she rest in peace and may her family be strong.

This news is very sad to hear. I never spoke to Mootilda or anything, since I lurk on forums a lot more than I post. However whenever I was looking for answers to questions or dealing with issues I having with my game I always found her posts helpful. She seemed like a great person. Condolences to her family and friends.

That's so terrible... she was always around, helping people out, she was brilliant and kind to people. I didn't know her very well, but she was definitely one of the people you just *know* about if you're in the Sims 2 community, because she was such a huge contributor. RIP Mootilda.

The loss of such a talented, kind-hearted and caring member of this community is a great loss. My condolences go to those who knew her and loved her in real life as well as those who were close to her in our community. It's times such as this that make you realise just how fragile a thing life is, and how lucky we all are to have known her or witnessed her talents within the community. I'm sure her memory and creations will live on and demonstrate just how wonderful a person and creator she was. As a community I think it would be nice if we could find a way to properly commemorate her.

I didn't know Mootilda personally, but I did use some of her mods and saw her around the forums on occasion.... this is such sad, sad news; my deepest condolences go to her family and friends, and to all of those here on MTS who did know her on a personal level.. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this terribly sad time... RIP Mootilda :(

This breaks my heart. I will never forget how Mootilda went above and beyond to help me out with a custom hood a year or so ago, she was so kind and full of helpful advice.
Mootilda was a class act and I will miss her contributions tremendously.

RIP Mootilda, you made this particular lurker feel very accepted and I will miss knowing you are out there somewhere.

This is indeed very sad, and shocking. I have so many things by her in my game, and outside. She was a superb technical creator, and always very generous and helpful to everyone.

I don't think I ever saw her post anything mean or hurtful. She was a wonderful person, woman and simmer. I'm genuinely sad to know that we have lost a leading light in the community.

She will be missed so terribly much by many more people than she ever knew who loved her and her work.

I'm personally very grieved to hear of her death.

hearing this news makes me really sad. i hope that her family gets well soon ... hopefully everyone concerned had a chance to prepare for that. (or to some extend?)
reading that so many people are touched makes me realize what a nice place MTS is. i easily forget that there are people behind these avatars with a real-life going on (since i am so buzy with mine and that extra virtual life on top). apparently many hearty, supportive persons as members, creators, moderators, site helpers...and whatsoever here. thats good to know. simply wanted to mention that

I have never talked to her or known her personally, sadly. However that doesn't deny the fact that she was a very nice member of the community, and I did see how much she helped people. She seemed very kind. I'm sad to hear that cancer has won the battle in the end, but I'm glad her passing was a moment of peace, and not one of fighting. I wish her family and her friends, and all those who knew her too my condoleances and a lot of strength and love; having (had) family members with cancer myself I can relate, a little. Mootilda will be missed.

I've never been a forum type of person, but the people here have made me feel comfortable. I've always loved Moo's Mews mini Community Lots and they are greatly used in my game, even keeping her business titles on them. She was always very friendly and helpful to the community. I wish her family well in a time of sadness.

This is terribly sad. :( Rest in peace Mootilda :( I never had the pleasure of speaking to her. But I always recognised her by her cute cow icon. Her creations have always changed my gameplay for the better. She was a very, very talented person and clearly a very loved member of the community. I hope you are in a better place and that you are no longer suffering. My prayers and condolences are with your family <3

Although I never knew Mootilda, this saddens me the same way as losing a soldier or firefighter I never knew. We are all part of a family, and the loss of one of our own is always heartfelt. I can only respond the same as I would in my firefighter family.....

Rest in Peace sister, we'll meet you on the top floor. Condolences and prayers go out to your friends and loved ones.

In real life Mootilda was my wife. We had known this was coming and we had some time to prepare for it, but it was very sudden when it happened.

Every day when I came home Mootilda would tell me about her day, and all the people she had helped, the interesting problems that she was working on, the discoveries she had made about how the game worked, or some new creation she had made from the tools she had created. This community made her so happy and brought her so much joy. I can't thank everyone enough for helping to give her life purpose.

Before joining the MTS community Mootilda had worked for a computer science research group at a university, then went on to work for Microsoft on Visual Studio, and then into Microsoft's pure research division where she studied techniques for how to make software completely without bugs. Producing high quality programs was always one of her greatest passions in life and I think it showed in everything she did. When she was no longer able to work she turned that passion on the problems in the sims. She was one of the smartest people you will ever meet, and all she wanted to do was to share what she knew with everyone.

I can't say enough good things about my wife. This outpouring of support from everyone has made me cry. I knew how many people she has touched over the years but to see it like this is overwhelming. I loved her dearly, and like everyone else here I will miss her.

Quatchi, I am truly sorry for your loss. Rest in peace Mootilda. You are missed. You were such a great blessing and help to so many of us. I learned so much from you and you were always very patient and kind. The thought of you not being here is just too much ... Quatchi, I pray for your peace of mind and comfort for your heart and spirit. May her love for you and your love for her surround you like a shield.

In real life Mootilda was my wife. We had known this was coming and we had some time to prepare for it, but it was very sudden when it happened.

Thank you for sharing a bit of her life with us. I knew of her work (some of her Sims 2 mods were the first content I downloaded after my return to the Sims 2) but never spoke with her personally. My love for you and yours during this difficult time, and all those people affected by her passing.

I am only a longterm lurker, but I know she left a huge, positive mark on the Sims community and everyone was so fortunate to have shared her presence.

Quatchi, I am very sorry for your loss. Mootilda was a really nice person who was able to explain things in a way that made them make sense, and she created many helpful programs that make the simming experience a better one. I didn't interact with her much, but I enjoyed the interactions we did have, and I'll miss her.

KittyPirate95
5th Sep 2014, 2:11 AM
Wow, that really is heartbreaking news. My condolences to Quatchi and their family, and thank you for sharing with us.

In all honesty, I never knew her. I knew and used a few of her creations, and I always recognized her simply because she had the most adorable avatar on the site.
Kinda makes me realize how a lot of people (myself included) take creators and modders, people who work hard and passionately, for granted. Sure, we click a green "Thank You!" button, but that seems like so little...

Rest in peace, Mootlida. You'll be missed.

Quatchi, I am very sorry for your loss and the loss that your families and friends must be feeling.

I did not know Mootilda personally. I knew of her work and knew how integral she was to a lot of different mods for TS2. I trusted her work and, if I saw her name on something, I had confidence in it whether it be download, help, etc. It's been many years since I played TS2 but I still fondly remember, most specifically, the lot adjuster. She will be missed here, one among many places I am sure.

I have no words. I remember when I saw her avatar for the first time in here, it made me laugh, it’s so sweet. I didn't know her, but I read her threads and contributions and I can see how much appreciated she was.
Her pain is gone now.
My condolences for her family and friends.
Rest in Peace.

Although I didn't know her well, I must do my duty as the Scion of the Rainbow Heart (A title I earn when my father's mother died of Parkinson's) to pay my final respects to those who have fallen due to old age, disease, accident or suicide. You will be remembered, Mootilda.

My Condolences, Quatchi to you and yours in this time.

Rest in Peace, Mootilda. You never need to suffer anymore.

Never got the chance to get to know anyone on here but there's a lot of passion and creativity towards the content uploaded here. It's all from the heart and I loved all of Mootilda's content. Wherever her spirit stays now, she's not in pain anymore and can live on happily. I'm sorry for the loss.

Rest in peace. I have appreciated her and always will, her community lots have been a feature of my hoods for a long time, and always will be - and I am sad that I did not really know her or actually talked to her on this forum. I am sure she is a huge loss to all of us, but even a huger loss to her family and friends. You are in my thoughts.

How awfully sad! I didn't know Mootilda, but I remember very well how active , creative, helpful she was just after the release of Sims 2. There was not yet any cc and she was always here to help in the long discussions about modding the game.

Quatchi, thank you for telling us a little about her. From her work here and her posts, it was clear that she was extremely intelligent, but she never acted smug or superior. On the contrary, she was patient and kind.

Yes, indeed. She was an amazing person, as so many others have also written.

Awful news. I can't believe Mootilda is gone. She was a wonderful person, always polite and helpful, who knew the game inside out. I never spoke to her myself but I read many of her posts. I now regret not having told her how much I appreciated her advice and everything she uploaded. My heart goes out to her loved ones: I cannot even begin to grasp how they must be feeling. Mootilda will be deeply missed. May she rest in peace.

Quatchi, I'm so sorry for your loss.

I've always been more of a lurker and builder than a player, but any time my account here got purged for inactivity Mootilda's would always be the first creator page I re-favourited, for all the cool utilities she gave us to play with. When I came back from a break from the game there'd often be something new and marvellous to explore, and her discussions of how to overcome some of its quirks were always fascinating and constructive to read.

Her love for the game shone through, and I'm glad for whatever comfort and distraction and joy it was able to give her.

She'll be much missed. RIP Mootilda.

I think I will never forget Mootildas avatar for some reason, that feels like part of mod the sims community :) She must have been one of those far too rare talented people who use their talent to create fun and good time, and I truly feel sorry for the loss. Rest in peace Mootilda, and thank you for everything you gave us while you still were here. We were so lucky to have her. (Condolences Quatchi and sorry for seemingly cold tone of my post, I'm clumsy expressing my feelings in any language especially english.)

Today I have very sad news to share with you all - one of our long term members, Mootilda, had been ill with cancer for some time. On Monday 1st September she was admitted to hospital and died peacefully on Tuesday morning. This announcement post gives us the opportunity to share our condolences with her family and to remember her for all the great mods she made for us, and more importantly, to remember her for her great character and her kindness in helping others.

Mootilda was a highly respected member of the community and could frequently be found helping out in modding discussions and help forums. She was an accomplished programmer who loved to share her knowledge with others as well as being a site helper here on MTS for a number of years, and contributed extensively to the site and the community.

Mootilda - we will miss you, rest in peace.


Such sad news :(

Cancer is an indiscriminate beast. My condolences to her family.

Mootilda was one of The Greats of simming community, who was involved for such a long time with this game series and this community. Her presence, impact and influence around the community was large and irreplaceable... And like others have said, she was such a genuinely kind-hearted, utterly lovely and sweet person.

She will always be remembered very fondly by this community, and as one of The Greats of Simming!

I didn't know her and I didn't know of her illness, but I know that she was a very important part of ModTheSims: Mootilda was one of the best creators of mods (especially programs and utilities) and many modders must thank her for the valuable help she gave.
My deepest condolences to the family and may God protect her in the kingdom of heaven.

To Mootilda's family, may you be comforted by the love you see here for her. I will remember her every time I play Sims2 which is everyday because she added so much to the game just out of the goodness of her heart. She shared her wonderful talent with all of us and will be sorely missed.

OMG...Mootilda has been a vivid presence here as long as I've been a member. She was one of the small number of almost legendary creators and was so generous with her work. There are many stars on MTS who make the game playable and more enjoyable for the rest of us. Mootilda needs to have a permanent "star" on the MTS Walk of Fame. RIP and condolences to her family and friends.

I never had the privilege to talk with Mootilda but when I first joined MTS I spent a great many lunch breaks at work reading old post and learned a great deal from reading Mootilda's old post. You can read through the forums and see how well liked and respected Mootilda was. It is nice to know that someone as talented as Mootilda will live on in post here at MTS to help many more new simmers out.

I, myself have lost quite a few relatives to cancer. I know that is a very hard and painful road Mootilda and her family traveled. May Mootilda rest in peace and may God be with her family and friends and help them through this great sorrow.

May I ask, what kind of cancer was it?

Mootilda had breast cancer. From there it had spread to her bones and then later to her lungs. At the end it had spread extensively to her brain although we had no indications that it was happening until just this week. Cancer is such a nasty disease. Once it starts to spread it spreads everywhere no matter how hard you fight. Mootilda fought hard and never gave up hope that she could keep going right up to the end.

I am genuinely saddened by this news. My heartfelt condolences to you Quatchi, and to all of your family and friends for your loss.
Mootilda was amazing, a truly kind and helpful person. As some have already said, you could trust anything she told you, and her topics and posts were interesting and relevant, while she always remained patient and approachable. Her mods and programs made huge changes to the way we are able to build and edit lots, her work with neighbourhoods, solving some of the oddities concerning them, making them more easily shareable and, more importantly SAFE, have been up there with the very best the Sims 2 community has ever had to offer.
She helped and encouraged me so much with recreating my custom neighbourhoods, she made herself available and put up with my probably stupid questions. I wouldn't, and couldn't, have done it without her. I am honoured and pleased to have known her, even in such a small way, and grateful to have had her as part of my simming experience.
Eternal respect, sleep peacefully and thank you forever Mootilda, from the bottom of my heart. xx

I never come to this part of the forum so I didn't know this, though I knew she had Health Crap. I just found out on tumblr. Waaaaah!

There needs to be a Mootilda Memorial Prize for modding or a contest or something. So much of what we can do, and know not to do, and know how to fix, is down to her constant patient parsing of the code.

6th Sep 2014, 6:14 PM
How we're remembered--if we were loving, kind, generous, patient--is a greater measure of our success than the milestones of human achievement we accomplish. Mootilda impacted people around the world and gave to those she would never meet in person. From the outpouring on this site, her life was well lived and successful. Her life, not so much her death, will always be remembered.

Even though I never had a personal chat with her, she was one of those creators who made my game worth playing.
Rest in peace, Mootilda.
My deepest condolences to her family and friends.

This year I was one of the lucky ones and successfully completed my own cancer treatment. I will never view life the same way again; each moment of life is precious! My thoughts and prayers are with her family. She will be long remembered and missed.

I would like to add my condolences too, to her family and the community. I did not know her, but I was sad when I heard that she had died. She was so nice and helpful.

Oh my goodness, this is awful :c

I've been a lurker for a while, only have ever posted a bit, but I've always seen Moo around being awesome and nice. She gave great contributions to this community. Rest in peace, Moo, and condolences to her family.

Rest in Peace, Mootilda.

It has already been said many times in this thread, but she was a 'huge' impact on this community and made the game so much more enjoyable for those of us who are still playing the sims. Her expertise, her kindness, and her generosity can be seen everywhere, so that new folks like myself, were able to start 'gaming' with ease and flourish because of her mods, because of her creativity. I never had the chance to get to know her, but through her mods, advice, and general presence here, felt as if she was a genuinely friendly soul. May she rest in peace, and her family find solace in knowing she will be dearly missed.

My mom died just over a year ago from cancer as well. I'm so sorry to all her family and friends. She is in a better place now.

She'll have her corner in hearts and minds of fellow simmers, and those people who loved her... whether she is in heaven is up to everybodys beliefs and I am not revealing my stand to such because I do not want to offend anybody, but in hearts for sure. I'm one of lurkers who nearly never say anything except to ask for stuff, and mainly just go away after reading or downloading things, but think about this alot and wish there would be some way to memorize her as community, since we can't light float of candles anywhere or share silent moment. This thread is the closest.

It is strange that a person I have never met could have brought such joy into my life through her programs. Her family and friends are in my thoughts, and she is in my heart.

There have been many people in my family with cancer over the years. My mother and father, among many others. My grandfather passed from prostate cancer when I was nine. I'm so sorry to hear that Mootilda is now among those that lost the battle.

My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to her family in this time of great sadness. :cry:

So sad to hear of this. I didn't know her too well but she was always kind to me and commented on a journal entry I had a while back. She seemed like a really great person from what I saw. My sympathy goes out to her family and friends.

I am so sad to hear about this news.
Mootilda's mod and her vast knowledge save my Sims neighborhood. I wouldn't be able to play The Sims 2 ever again if not for her. And I will always use her mods as long as I still play the game, in that she achieves immortality.

Thank you Mootilda for sharing your work with us, I really respect how kind, patient, professional, and knowledgeable you are. Rest in peace, I will miss you and your very cute avatar.

Mootilda's Lot Adjustor was the mod that peaked my interest in wanting to do more with the Sims game! It has given me an outlet to battle the inner demons I've been struggling with personally by connecting me to a wonderful community that is rich in kindness and friendship. I am grateful to her for creating all the wonderful mods she gave to us to enhance our gaming experiences. May she inspire the heavens into Simming eternally :P

When I read this, i honestly felt like bursting into tears. Every time i read a tutorial on Sims and Mootilda i will not be able to read it without crying now. She has been here for what feels like forever. Now she's gone. My heart goes out to her family and friends.We will miss you Mootilda. Live beyond cloud nine with Quxxn. She was a great example of creators in MTS.

I didn't know her, but I can clearly see she was a very talented, creative, respected member of this site and was loved by lots of people, and will be missed, but remembered through her creations and by her support and help she gave to everyone. My prayers go to her family.
