R.I.P. Zim4ik

Hello people

I don't really know how to announce this because it's not an usual situation, so I'll do it simple.

Days ago, I was contacted by Zim4ik's brother, he told me that Zim was dead. He did it only now because he  accidentally opened his email with mails from Modcraft few days ago and I was the last guy who talked with him.

So, here's the messages.

Zim4ik's brother:

Hi. It's his brother. Zim4ik was killed at 14.07.2014
https://vk.com/zim4ik
So, that's it...

I asked if I should tell this to the community too, and what happened.

To be honest , no one knows . The door to the apartment was open. In the kitchen were signs of a struggle . He was found at the bottom under the house . Ejected from the eighth floor . He died immediately .
On his computer left many files . He worked up to the end .
Here is a screenshot of what to do about it ?

Yes, better to tell everyone . Let remember the day of his death 07.14.2014
.....
so, you can write at my email y*********o@gmail.com

 

It's very sad to die in this kind of circumstances.
So, as he asked, I continue to discuss on his own email. I told him he can send us his work so it will not be done in vain because he worked for this community.

I'm not in the same country as him, so it's not easy to find the time to use teamviewer, I'm not a pro too and I don't know which file can be useful for the community if it's not models (Trinitycore, sql, etc...). So he uploaded the files.

So, I did it https://mega.nz/#!VQZWSLhL
I think, I had to do it earlier, but I accidentaly opened his email with mails from Modcraft few days ago..
So, anyway, use it.

The files are hosted on Mega, but he forgot to give me the key to decrypt the link.

Oh, of course

and, I'll be in touch
Best regards!

 

So, that's it.

You can download the pack too, it contains his work on retro-porting HD races to 3.3.5 (the m2i are for older M2mod release, but you can convert his modified m2's with newer version). There's also a patch with custom races like Tuskarrs, Taunkas, etc...) and DBCs to make it work.
You are free to continue his work if you want.

Edit: you can extract the file only with 7zip, not winrar or default windows extraction.

You can contact his brother if you want to tell him something about that, I don't think he'll be angry.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that the file needs 7zip to be extracted, only 7zip.

Rename the extension in *.rar instead of *zip, it's what I did and it worked after that.

I heard this story about almost a year ago and I was told it was not true. When I heard that I asked @Vellear for confirmation as they were friends with Zim. He said it is not true and Zim has left his town for studying somewhere and that he is not interested in modding anymore. But he claimed they talked in the end of 2015 and he showed him photos from spring, 2015. I do not know what to believe but y*********o@gmail.com seems to indeed belong to his brother.

If this is still true, rest in peace, Zim.

I and Met@ checked a lot of facts since this post was created. There were many "weird" facts we found in the released files and Zim's social media, so we hoped it was faked. However, after contacting his brother again and reaching some of his friends, it became clear that it is most likely true, sadly. :(

Knowing that someone from our community died with his mods being the last signs of his life... It creates a kind of feeling that I can't describe. I remember seeing Zim4ik's name around Modcraft all the time years ago, and now regret that I never got to know him. Thank you for sharing his work, I'm sure his friends here will really appreciate that. 

Now, word spreads fast so I hope everyone who wanted to contact his brother has already done so. I'm going to remove his email address from these posts to protect him from spam bots. If you still want to know it, contact Met@ and I'm sure he'll help you. 

Rest in peace Zim4ik...:(

Really sad... Do you thinking sometimes about yourself. What will be with your own work if something happens? How community will take this news etc.

But I still can't believe it, I thing information is wrong. Really can't believe it.

Oh, this looks like true... I knew him when he worked on Eternity RP project. Also when he created his first race patch I was early-noob in modding.

He was the one guy who inspired me to learn modding. Fuck, I'll never believe that he died. 

Rest and piece, Zim. I think we never forget you :(
