Even though I didn't ask for Moo a lot, and this is a bit old, it's s**t to lose someone, We know that in moments like these anything won't be enough, nevertheless I truly wish her to rest in peace.

Aw. This is very sad. RIP Mootilda. ~ No more pain. I haven't been on in a very long time. I always was glad to read her writings here. You will be missed. : (

I haven't been online as much recently as I would've liked to have been, just learned of Mootilda's passing today...I'm heartbroken, Mootilda was a wonderful person & friend to the community. I always looked forward to reading her posts, loved her sense of humour.

My sincerest thoughts & prayers to her family. I always felt that Mootilda was the "cool aunt" of her online family.

Thank you Mootilda, for all your amazing contributions to our community, for all the patience & guidance you shared with noobs like myself. You will be sorely, sorely missed... <3

Condolences to her family and all that knew her. I lost my G'pa to cancer two years ago. Cancer also took two of my co-workers, who were close friends of mine. I know how devastating it is to lose someone to it. My sincerest condolences to all that knew her. :^(

I just found out and I can't believe it! Why, just why

I liked Mootilda so much. Can't even imagine how she was living for last years. She was so kind and patient, surely she earned herself a happy life in a better place. I can only hope.

Although I'm fairly new to this site (Sept 23rd, 2014), Mootilda's posts/programs/mods/etc frequently caught my interest. You could say I developed an admiration for her devoted hard work to Sims2 creations. It was very sad when I read the post of her passing. Well, to be honest,,,it brought tears to my eyes. Her work has been a heart felt gift that adds to the enjoyment of playing Sims2. She will certainly be missed. Blessings to the family.

I miss her...
She helped me extensively & never spoke to me in a condescending "better-than-you because I run with the in-crowd" kind of way.... because she was a genuinely nice person who refused to take on immature attitudes so commonly found in Sims forums. She was just normal, kind & warm.

This is new news to me as I sometimes go long stretches with the time for our game & community websites, so I'm shocked & saddened as if this just happened. The first page I always find is hers when I log in. I spent much time the last two days going over her notes to me, having happy thoughts about our memories.... and then I just discovered this & it's hitting me like a ton of bricks. Now I know why The Universe unfolded the way it has.

I am so sorry for yours & our loss. So very sincerely. She went above & beyond for me, and I miss her terribly. I've had chronic leukemia since I was a kid, and it's one thing when it's one's self, but another thing entirely when it's someone else, especially someone you highly regard.

She was so selfless & good-hearted.

Goodbye Mootilda. I'll see you on the other side beautiful soul. Be ever blissful, charming & happy.

with love,

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.

Rest In Peace Mootilda.

I just clicked on this thread thinking it was about Terry Pratchett (the site-wide announcements) to find out just now that Mootilda died a year ago.'s just so sudden, too soon. The first time I ever met and found out about Mootilda was when I ruined my computer using that awful tutorial from MATY; it was Mootilda who taught me how to merge multiple hoods properly by linking me to meetme2theriver's page, along with her own Fix Subhood Selection download. Mootilda's population control guide has also been linked in my signature since almost forever. (Still there, btw) My Sims 2 game can't even live without the Clean Installer, the Hood Checker, Fix Subhood Selection, the no weather mod and especially the constant temperature mod (to prevent stuck sunburn tokens). The memory I have of Mootilda is of a person who helped peoples' games not be broken in a courteous, factual and easy to understand way, along with a person who gave tips to aspiring meshers from time to time.

I'll miss you, Mootilda. You were one of the best and brightest of MTS and we MTSers are poorer here without you.

When noregen hacks are not know what you must do. (RIP Mootilda , pay your respects in the thread and in her guestbook.)

I read the news quite late, but my heart sunk all the same.
I loved Moo and her mods! I had never known her in real life, we were only chatting through PMs, but reading she has passed away makes my eyes misty.

Rest in peace, Moo. You will be dearly missed.

I've been away from Sims and this site for well over a year and recently decided to log on to download anything for Sims2 I might want in case things might not still be here for long. I just learned of Mootilda's passing today and it never occurred to me that some *one* might be gone. I was following the development of Riverside and carefully watching some topics on avoiding game corruption and knew she was having health problems but this is such a terrible shock.

I'm grateful for the chance to have benefited from her knowledge, patience and kindness. I'm glad to hear contributing to the Sims community was something she enjoyed. I think there are a number of Simmers with health issues, myself included, who have found this to be a place where we can contribute, interact and be enriched for it. This is so important when you are limited in what you can do. I know all of our times will come someday but this was too soon and seems so unfair. My heart goes out to Mootilda's family and friends. I hope you are able to find some peace and comfort and enjoy the good memories you have of her.

Though I'm a long time member, lurker and downloader I seldom post or interact with other members. Returning after a long hiatus from Sims I came across the sad news that Mootilda had passed away. I did not know her or ever talk to her yet she was still part of my life, even though she didn't know of my existence. She was my "go to" member. Any problems or questions I had, anything I hoped to do in game; hers were the threads, advice and creations I sought out most often. I felt confident with any download or advice from her...If it's Mootilda's, it'll work, it's safe, I need it. I want to do this in game...I bet Mootilda has a thread on how to. If I was having game issues and was discussing them with my husband I often replied, "I'll see what I can find from Mootilda on it." He's not a simmer, yet he came to know her name and abilities through me speaking often of her knowledge regarding the game.

It says a great deal about a person that they are admired, respected and "known" to people that they haven't ever spoken to or even know exist. Mootilda, thank you!

Wait, what? Nono this can't be true. I'm sorry I'm so late, I just saw this.
I'm new here and I have been, and still AM, using the MAJORITY of her mods. I literally just now downloaded MooVille and figured out what it stands for..
I've been leaving her messages thinking she was just offline.
This actually breaks my heart. I didn't know this at all. I thought she just went inactive.

I feel so terrible. I miss her and I didn't even know her. She was phenomenally skilled and had some of the best CCs. She will truly be missed.
RIP Mootilda.
