.com Server Changes

Author Brant    Category All, Miscellaneous     Tags

A significant structural update was completed for the .com server and uploaded on Sunday morning. Adjustments were made to all of the simulators, the images, and other files that should make it easier to maintain and update simulators in the future. Most of the changes were intended to be behind-the-scenes, but some changes to the Edit Cast pages should be noticeable.

Unfortunately, this update caused some bugs, and I may not be aware of all of them. Please report any issues you notice, and I will work on addressing these as soon as possible.

Bugs Fixed:
– Ghost Island logo is incorrect.
– Various color and black & white cast photos stopped working.
– Alliances no longer work in the Big Brother Canada 5, Big Brother Over the Top, Survivor 33, Survivor 34, Total Drama Island, and The Challenge: The Duel simulators.
– Merge tribes and tribes added after the start of a season no longer show on Edit Cast for S33 & S34.
– Big Brother 10-20 Player Templates link no longer working.
– Big Brother Canada 5: The winner page redirects to the start.

Thank you for your feedback. Comments have been turned off. Please feel free to use the Contact Form for additional bug reports.

    Glad to see the site is getting some updates. Hopefully it only means there is more to come soon.

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:35 pm

      I hope so too.

  • Kyle [Guest] April 16, 2018 at 9:08 pm

    The alliances for Survivor 33 and 34 don’t work as well. Thanks for updating and hope for S35 simulator whenever possible 🙂

    • Brant [Admin] April 17, 2018 at 3:18 am

      Thanks, fixed.

    In the interactive mode on the advanced template there are quite a few glitches. I’ll click ‘stay out of spotlight’ and it’ll make me standout. When i vote for someone it’ll make me evict the other person.

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:30 pm

      This is a .net simulator and not related to the updates on .com. This interactive template will eventually be moved to .com, and additional changes and bug fixes will occur on it then.

  • Bug [Guest] April 17, 2018 at 1:06 am

    You can’t click the “10-20 Person Simulators” on the list of Big Brother seasons. When you click it, it sends you to an error

    • Brant [Admin] April 17, 2018 at 3:18 am

      Thanks, fixed.

  • Ahamd [Guest] April 17, 2018 at 1:49 am

    When you will do the interactive option on survivor?

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:31 pm

      No estimate, sorry.

  • Dean [Guest] April 17, 2018 at 7:06 am

    Thanks for these updates! Can you make another post that sheds some light too whats happening with the future of BrantSteele? E.g Upcoming simulators. Because all I’ve seen lately are cast photos, which is fine, but I would love some of the recent BB and Survivor seasons too (and TDA also). 😀

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:31 pm

      Thank you for your feedback! The next simulator is in development. When it’s a little further along, I’ll make a blog post announcing it.

  • Thebloodstorm [Guest] April 17, 2018 at 7:33 pm

    Are you going to add relationships to hunger games simulator like if they are siblings they are less likely to kill each other but on the other hand you could set two people as rivals and they would be more likely to fight

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:32 pm

      This is possible but not currently planned.

  • boop bop [Guest] April 18, 2018 at 3:52 pm

    BBCAN5 Simulator issue: At the finale when you try to proceed it sends you back to the beginning

    • Brant [Admin] April 19, 2018 at 11:18 pm

      Thanks, fixed.

  • Nathan [Guest] April 18, 2018 at 6:05 pm

    So, I found an issue in the Survivor: Gabon simulator. Featured in my video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAmmKJ59AkU&t=17s (NOT SPAM, I SWEAR)
    Basically, Dan & Ken won individual immunity at the beginning of Gabon. However, Dan was still first boot. So, that’s an error.

  • Milkdud [Guest] April 19, 2018 at 5:52 pm

    When will blog profiles be added back?

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:34 pm

      As soon as we have a stable system that doesn’t slow down the simulators.

  • Bug [Guest] April 19, 2018 at 6:40 pm

    Also, this isn’t a new bug, but the logo for The Australian Outback is much bigger than the rest. Can we get that fixed soon?

    • Brant [Admin] April 19, 2018 at 11:19 pm

      I’m a little confused about how/when that happened. I’ll look into it. Thank you.

  • John [Guest] April 21, 2018 at 10:49 am

    Is there an estimate for Total Drama Action? I love this site, but there is only one season of Total Drama for a long time (I know it’s a lot of work, I just want to know if you’re working on it).

    • The guy above me isn't brant [Guest] April 22, 2018 at 12:09 am

      He does this all for free. Dont be a jerk

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:33 pm

      No estimate, sorry.

  • Selena [Guest] April 21, 2018 at 7:01 pm

    Any update about survivor 35? I love this site!

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:33 pm

      Thank you. It will be made. No estimate, sorry.

  • Jack_Skeletron_4ever [Guest] April 24, 2018 at 7:49 am

    There will be an update for the survivors simulators where the option of not having images for contestants is implemented?

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:29 pm

      This will be an option for all .com Survivor simulators but not for the original ones on .net.

  • Gabe [Guest] April 24, 2018 at 6:43 pm

    Hi! So this has been happening for a while but in the survivor Sims that have double individual immunity on the line, whether it be one girl and one guy wins or any 2 ppl win, one person who wins would have been eliminated from the game already making it unfair for the people still left, plz fix!

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:29 pm

      This is noted and will be fixed. Sorry for the delay, the .net simulators will still get bug fixes but no updates otherwise.

  • Lee [Guest] April 25, 2018 at 8:30 am

    Hi! Alliances for season 32 of Survivor don’t work as well (alliances are completely different before and after swaps and merge). If you can look into it, thanks!

    • Brant [Admin] April 25, 2018 at 11:28 pm

      Season 32 is an original simulator on .net. I’ll look into it, but it shouldn’t be connected to these latest updates. Thank you for the report.
