RIP Peter Rorlach (DocRorlach)
« on: January 25, 2013, 10:29:02 AM »
It is with sadness that I have to convey the news that Peter (DocRorlach), the creator and developer of the SC4Tools collection, Working Man Production (WMP) plugins and associated websites has passed away.

He became very sick in Jan 2012, but fought to remain as active within this on-line community he loved for as long as possible.

Unfortunately before Christmas the illness got the better of him and he had to give up the last of the projects he was working on as his care had to now be hospital based.

He passed away in hospital on the 12th Jan 2013.

On a personal note, Peter was a great help developing my companies new website & on-line order systems - without his help I would not have been able to push the business in the direction it has taken.

Ron (rivit), who has also been aware of Peters illness throughout, would like to add that Peter helped him (and many others), both with ideas and creations in a generous and forthright way. His many contributions will be missed.

I will continue to host and maintain Peters websites, but I do not have the talent or knowledge to continue is work

Thank you for your time

That's really sad news, my condolences to his family and friends.

Though I didn't know him personally, for me WMP props and textures has quickly become indispensable as his work was and still is top-notch. His legacy will live on for years to come.

That's so, so sad.

I'm fairly certain it was Peter who helped me out a few years ago when I was having problems getting SC4 to work on my PC. He was very kind and very helpful.

RIP, Peter.

It's always very sad when we lose a member of the community.  :(  I hope his family and friends are able to go on as good as could be hoped.

I've only been in the SC4 community since 2011, and I had heard of his dependencies for lots, but man, that's sad!

My condolences.
