Big Brother Canada 5 Simulator Released

Author Brant    Category All, Updates     Tags

After about a month of work, the Big Brother Canada 5 simulator has been released.

This includes the ability to make audience decisions and change settings each week. There is also a voting chart.

Please report any bugs that you see, and any general feedback on the season is appreciated. This season uses a similar template to Big Brother: Over the Top, and a few bugs were identified and corrected in that season while making this one. @brandon deserves significant credit for the planning of this season, the voting chart, and the testing. Without his help, this would have taken longer to release and would have had a much higher number of bugs.

Once any errors are resolved, saving will be added to finalize this season. Certain text descriptions, Have Not competitions, and tasks may also be improved with more detail.

Update: The reported bugs in comments have been fixed, and saving has been added.

      If you remember, was this during nominations and veto replacement?

          Thanks, fixed both scenarios. Impressive that you found an error that I missed over many test seasons.

    Any chance we can get nominees under a spoiler to put suspense between shortlist and nominations?

      Interesting request. It’s possible. Soon maybe.

    Some might call it a bug, but I call it divine justice.

      Happened to me as well with Alexis Maxwell (using Survivor Contestants) being nominated twice, and shockingly eliminating Alexis.

      More like a darksided season 🙁

    Display isn’t reflecting Final HOH win in the tally.

      Thanks, fixed.

    One thing I noticed was that in the triple eviction on the Weekly Summary at the end, it only says 2 initial nominees instead of 3 and only names 1 of the evictees instead of 2.

    But good work, I’m loving it!!

    How do I become a tester like Brandon?

      Stay tuned, there will be more opportunities soon.

        Ok I will 🙂

    I noticed a small bug in one of the Have Nots competition. Sindy was listed as 2 of the have nots for the week.

      Fixed in week 6. Hopefully that’s where you saw it.

  • Bob [Guest] June 12, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    This is off topic but sometimes the simulators will get kinda sexist. Like, it will merge or jury will start (depending on the simulator) and the guys will steamroll the girls down, or the girls will steamroll the guys down. Can you fix it?

    • Profile photo of Delcatty
      Delcatty [Member] June 12, 2017 at 10:38 pm

      I don’t think that’s a fault with Brantsteele, It’s most likely just a complete coincidence that one sex tempts to dominate the other in the sims you play.

      • Profile photo of Brant
        Brant [Admin] June 13, 2017 at 12:34 am

        Correct. The sex and gender attributes are primarily used for display purposes. In a few simulations, they’re used for determining even groups, but they shouldn’t provide an advantage either way.

        • Bob [Guest] June 14, 2017 at 12:48 am

          The Final 8 in a BB simulation I did was 6 men and 2 women. By the F6, it was all men…

            Izumi [Member] June 15, 2017 at 11:18 am

            Maybe that happens because of alliances and relationships. I’ve had a final 8 – with 3 women and 5 men, but the final 5 were 3 women and 2 men.

    I noticed another bug in the BBCAN5. So Neda won the secret veto and used it on Sindy but then Neda was nominated as the renom.

      Secret veto user isn’t immune IIRC.

      Fixed, thanks. There was an issue with the second week it could be used on.

    Yay thanks for posting this. It’s so fun.

  • Porridge [Guest] June 13, 2017 at 4:30 pm

    Another thing about the triple eviction- on the voting chart if the result is 2-1-0 the 2 evictees will be switched around (i.e. housemate #2 will say 1 vote to save when they actually received 0 and housemate #3 will say 0 votes to save when they received 1).
    Also if there is a tie on the triple eviction so the HOH gets to choose who to stay, the voting chart will show that they saved someone else.

    It’s no big deal just something I noticed!

    • Porridge [Guest] June 13, 2017 at 5:07 pm

      Also: in week 6, a houseguest won the safety card but was announced as the replacement nominee after veto was used.

          All fixed.

  • Justin [Guest] June 14, 2017 at 3:31 pm

    Is there anyway to add spoiler buttons like in the advanced template for suspense? Its more fun that way!

  • Sam [Guest] June 14, 2017 at 4:10 pm

    In week 4, if the simulator is set to “All Random”, everyone chooses the exact same nominees, including the people nominated

  • Ahamd [Guest] June 14, 2017 at 6:48 pm

    Can you add the twist for the interactively game.
    Like the double and triple eviction and backward week.

    • Porridge [Guest] June 15, 2017 at 1:25 pm

      Those twists are already there in the simulator…

  • Ahamd [Guest] June 14, 2017 at 6:51 pm

    Also for the survivor can we play interactively game like chose player and play the whole season and playing challenges , making alliances and voting. l have been waiting for this a lot. Please make it

  • Will [Guest] June 15, 2017 at 2:38 am

    Jennie won the final four veto, but didn’t save herself:

      Probably isn’t a bug. Just a 1 in a million chance thing.

  • Jojo [Guest] June 15, 2017 at 3:46 pm

    Can you make a Next Top Model Simulator or a Hells Kitchen Simulator

  • Profile photo of Wormwood
    Wormwood [Member] June 16, 2017 at 1:25 am

    Not sure if it’s a glitch or a logic issue, but the winner of the final four veto did not use the veto, even though they were a nominee.
