We've experienced a data loss recently. Very recently, in fact.
This isn't our first, and from the looks, not our last either! We have lost over 60% of Luminou OS* data. We will keep the remaining version public for the already existing testers.
We plan to rebuild everything as soon as possible, and even aim to make it better because we already know what were aiming for.
This will set back release dates, but not development plans.
We will keep you updated when development restarts. :)
While you're waiting, why not stay up-to-date on The Sims development?
An upcoming Luminou update will add the feature to force quit, as well as restart.
Visual improvements were made, and we have made the fake OS more realistic and immersive. Everything is now at least 99.9% custom made! :)
The buttons, backgrounds, gradients, task bars, code, etc. are all custom made using photoshop for the images and our knowledge for the coding.
The next update will allow you to (very glitch-ily?) move panels (or windows) around by clicking and dragging. Custom accounts are being looked into, but for now you will still have the "[Account Name]" text as your profile name. This does not effect your login ID.
As a review, the new features are:
• More immersive experience
• Draggable Panels (Windows)
• Restart option
• Force Quit option
• More Applications
• New Store Items
• Redeem Code option
• Wallet Funds (Beta)
• Virtual Prepaid Cards
• Bug Fixes
• Game Implementation
• Beta Login Screen theme change
We are also working with new code and experimenting to deliver the option of themes...
More on that as we progress.
Luminou was recently updated again. This time we fixed most banned/suspended account problems, and we added a new feature.
You can now restart Luminou OS by clicking "Restart".
This option is currently only available on the log in screen and the main virtual desktop.
It will force close all of the open windows and reset everything so that it will function properly the next time it is opened.
Banned or suspended accounts that were accidentally blocked should now be ACCESSIBLE...
Trixel is experimenting with LBP to create a Trixel application that stores a database of levels and information.
Below is a picture that shows a login screen.
Development has just started, so it could be cancelled without notice.
Trixel Interactive and Trixel Games are currently working on other projects.
• Trixel Service
• The Sims Online: Careers
• iOS Development
• Computer Entertainment Software
• Mini-Game Development
• Garry's Mod
• Unknown Project (code name: sdk-gme-cty)
Trixel Interactive is looking into developing for iPhone's jailbreak app "Cydia".
Trixel Interactive is currently working on developing Trixel Service and Luminou, along with The Sims Online: Careers Expansion Pack.
We've spoken with the team working on Trixel Interactive, and according to Halston Stephenson, there will be a lot of users on the next update.
Here's what he has to say:
He then proceeded to say,
The next update release date is undecided, but with the latest news, it doesn't seem to far off!
Also, if you have participated in the Isolated Darkness alpha/beta it has been linked to banned and suspended accounts.
The Luminou application that has been in development recently is now stable enough to release a public build.
You can download it from Home > Download Application
(Page will be moved soon)
The program will greet you with a voucher redemption dialog.
Please make sure that you have this available for access to your account.
If you are being told that you cannot login until a specific update (usually an update count number) then you must wait it out. This just means that you're account has features that aren't available in the public, more stable version.
Luminou OS will be seeing several changes and updates within the next couple of months. Some absolutely huge, and some minor.
We can expect to see a lot of users wanting to get their hands on this new application.
Unfortunately, it's restricted to selected testers only (at this time). Trixel staff and selected T-Games members will be able to access a portion of the software, and more features will unlock as they are developed.
