Snaptrap was gravely injured in a motorcycle accident in the beginning of this month. Although his injuries were serious, and from what I read he was in ICU for a while, he was well enough to be discharged from hospital recently.
His brother just posted in the mods forum that Richard (Snaptrap) passed away a few days ago. Before that however he managed to complete the mod he was working on, Silent Fire, which will be uploaded by Ron (Richard's brother).
The thread where Richard's unfortunate accident was first highlighted: http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=137678
Rest in peace, Richard.
