WOW I'm lost for words as I am just finding out about this. I used a lot of Scumbumbo mods as did many. He will be missed. I send my Condolences to his family and to the other Simmer's we lost.

Since I am off at modding due to illness, I had time without logging here and I recently knew about this. The sudden disappearing of Scumbumbo caught my attention for a while and I read that he took breaks in the past and I thought that this time can be one of those, but sadly, it was another story.

He disappeared almost the same time I couldn't make mods anymore. I want to thank him for all his useful mods and tools. I will miss him because as a modder, I learned from him. I really think we lost a big modder, not only for mods users, for creators too. He had cool and useful ideas to make our journey easier during the modding process.

My condolences to his family, we will miss him not only for his contribution in this mod community, for his patient and kind.

I just saw this post and I have to say, I'm extremely saddened the community lost such a valuable member. Whoever they were, they were a wonderful person. Their mods certainly made my Sims 4 experience a whole lot better and I can't even believe this is even real. My heart goes out to all of the community members who are mourning, as well as his family and friends. I think he'll be remembered for a long time.

I just heard the news today through the official Sims forums, and I had hoped to find out more by coming here. But I guess that's not for us to know.

Condolences to his family, friends, and those who interacted with him regularly.

I am only just realizing this... gosh my heart goes out to all those who are mourning him. He had such an enormous impact on our community and it shows even more in all of these comments. I am not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but if you are looking for a way to continue to remember him, there are those that are keeping his mods up to date. The site is https://scumbumbomods.com/

RIP Scumbumbo <3

Literally just found out about this. So sad. ): I hope he’s resting in peace.

I always thought he just lost interest / was taking a break but we just never know. I still use his mods to this day, darker progress circles make playing ts4 easier.

Thank you for your hard work and commitment, Scumbumbo.

Like many, I was very sorry to hear the news about Scumbumbo.

However, a few moments ago I found an UPDATE from (presumably) Scumbumbo on his YouTube Channel - posted June 2, 2020. According to this video, titled "President Scumbumbo", he says many have believed 'fake news' about him being gone and he's not gone. Video found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J629d183i4

Just thought I should pass this finding to all concerned.
