SimBuddy Now Officially Closed

As we reported earlier this month, online community tool SimBuddy was due to close on October 12th. It’s with sadness that we are now writing to confirm that the website and service has now officially closed its doors.

The website has now been replaced with a single page with a message from Georgio, Clorix, TheMarmerliser and Mejjo thanking the community for their support and giving some final information for those who were subscribers. The full transcript is as follows.

“SimBuddy was closed on Saturday 12th October 2019. You can read the official closure statement here.

A huge thank you to all our members and subscribers for your continued support. It’s been an amazing journey.

As for why it’s closing, down the team put it down to the time and energy needed to maintain such a platform. “I put roughly 30-40 hours a week into developing SimBuddy and a further 40+ hours into my day job.” Commented one of the developers, “As you can imagine, this is getting pretty difficult to maintain, and it’s having a huge impact on my life.” “It’s a sad day for me, and I’m sorry it’s come to this. It’s been a fantastic journey, and I thank you all for being a part of it.”
