My wife and kids have been asking me if I have heard any news about his status. Sad news indeed.

Goodbye Maciej. You've left your marks all over this community. You can't be forgotten.

I've updated the topic message. Thanks everyone for your support. I know Mati (his best friend) will convey the sentiment to RBA's girlfriend.

.: Rest in peace :.
Thank you for all your help to make minetest better (especially for fixing those horrible texture tear, wield mesh, blinking water bugs I begged you about, for introducing that awesome tone mapping effect, VBO that I use by default and many other things you did).
You will be missed :(

I wasn't going to reply here because the situation seemed to be better...
Now I know it wasn't like that.
Rest in peace, RBA.

This is... weird... sorry I can't find a better term now. We used to talk often on IRC, and he'd often show me screenshots as we'd plan various features for Minetest... last time we were closely discussing his new shaders. I'm currently confused at how someone just dies like that... it's different to see such happen in practice from when you just think of it in theory.

I'll admit that part of me hoped RBA faked this, to get away from conflicts in the dev team. I heard of people who did that online before, and it even happened to me very long ago with a friend. From what I'm hearing though, that's pretty unlikely.

It's so hard to express my thoughts in words. But I'll try.

This makes me so sad. I will miss you, Maciej...

... as the graphics wizard. Nobody else was as good and prolific at creating new shaders, drawtypes, or other graphics features for Minetest. And I think you were the only one (besides celeron55) that knew the mesh making code in and out.

... as a developer in general. I hope you didn't hate my guts whenever we vehemently disagreed on something trivial. But I always enjoyed your work and evidently many players did too. I don't know much about what you worked on outside of Minetest, but the demoscene creations you showed us from time to time were always fun to watch and listen to.

... most importantly, as a friend. I don't know whether you considered me one as well and we never had the chance to meet in person. But I will miss all the chats with you and the banter.

My thoughts are with his loved ones.

Rest In Peace Maciej "RealBadAngel" Kasatkin.

Grief is weird, it can bring up all kinds of unexpected emotions and leave us feeling helpless, especially in a situation like this, where few of us really knew RBA. Words seem really weak at times like these. I hope we can hold together as a community and that he will be remembered through his contributions to Minetest.

My heart goes out to all who were close to him.
Grailtest is dreaming ...

I also condolences over the death of RBA.

He has been through a lot of things during the 43 years of his life. In Minetest, he has donated time and thoughts so that this game can still attract attention. Lastly, he is a member of a large family Minetest community.

Hopefully he can rest in peace. Family and relatives were given patience and fortitude.

I do not intimately know RealBadAngel but I'm very sad to get that.
RBA's technic mod was one of my favorite mods.

Goodbye RealBadAngel, I hope you'll get a nice residence in heaven.
Can your read this?

We're still going to be taking care of minetest-technic (it has 3 more active devs), so please keep using it.

Sooner or later, someone will have to ask these questions: What are we going to do about shaders next? RBA was working on a new shader pipeline, and had bloom as well as depth-of-field working... also on phong based realtime lighting. Did he get to post them on GitHub for someone else to continue? If not, is there any chance that someone else will be able to redo them and still make them happen? Both for the project but also in his memory, I don't want the features he had in progress to die with him...

Please open a separate thread for discussions like these, ok?

Short answer: none of his code will be lost. I myself and others have copies, and you can grab a copy yourself as well. (But lets continue this discussion in another thread).

Thanks for the answer. And sorry... I might open another thread on that later if no one else does.

That's very sad to see. Some days ago I haven't found any words tell him to get well soon and now it's too late.
You were a great community member - and made so many new features and improvements in the game, specially the minimap.

I will miss you. Rest in peace.

I saw this topic yesterday because another person said it me. I first thought O_O and "is this a joke?". I always saw him as someone, who is higher than me. I don't know much about him, his life or what he has done with Minetest. The problem is, when people stop developing and playing Minetest, the game dies even faster because the people don't see any sense in it anymore. So we must stay strong to hold the game and the forum alive. I thought such of problems don't happen to such important people, but they do.
I did never speak or write to him personally but he will be missed.
Sorry for my bad English!
Do not call me -minetest.
Call me DS or DS-minetest.
I am German, so you don't have to pm me English if you are also German.
The background is a lie.

In my sincerely opinion about this, i am very sad...

I hope God help his family with this situation, in really i hope his family can resist this tragic moment.

The forum will not be the same without him.

I hope he be in the heaven...

Oh shit.

Like, oh shit.

Fuck. Fuck.

FUCK.



This hurts me more; I remember testing the initial version of his technic mod. 0.4.3 or 0.4.4. Pretty sure it's one of them.

My condolences and thoughts to his immediate friends and family.

I am (was) not close to RealBadAngel, and I am really a very, very little developper in this (big?) community. However, I used many mods that he made, and I know he contributed a lot to the minetest engine itself.
Sorry for my english : I am french...

A few other things

It is difficult to find words in such a situation. I don't know if he knew me further, and I can't claim to have known him closely. Our areas seldom intersected, with him knowing so much about graphics and me so few. Yet we sometimes talked on IRC, and it was a pleasure.

Each time we talked, he was developing something nice and sharing intresting screenshots of upcoming new features. He deeply cared about us, the players, and wanted to improve the game so that it might be enjoyed even more. He did spend a lot of effort on it, working many long hours, fighting with the other devs to find the best way. I think he really loved coding.

It is a pity that he is no longer with us here.

Let us keep his memory by using and further developing what he wrote - by enjoying the graphics features and his mods. That is what he wished for in his life.

Good-bye for now, RBA, or Maciej, as was your name. I do not know what you believed in, but when the time comes, let us meet again at God's side and be with him forever.
A list of my mods can be found here.
