Survivor 33-37 Updates, Part 1

Author Brant    Category All, Simulator Updates     Tags

A new display for past tribes has been added, along with the ability to change alliances and relationships weekly. These features are available on the five BrantSteele.com Survivor simulators.

The next Survivor update will contain logic improvements and more display changes, along with a new secret advantage system. This update may be broken into multiple parts.

The internal structure was changed behind all 5 of these seasons, so there’s a high likelihood for bugs, especially for Ghost Island and David vs. Goliath. Please list any you see, and I’ll list the ones that are fixed below. Thank you.

  • Bugs Fixed:
  • S34 & S36: Exiled players return to the correct tribe in the event of a medevac.
  • S35: Merge targeting threats, not weak players.
  • S36: Ghost Island explained in merge episode.
  • Fixed legacy advantage gifting text showing up in seasons with data from the previous simulation
  • Fixed issues with cast data for Angelina Keeley, Kyle Massey, and Jeremy McConnell
  • S33-S37: Wrong cast members displayed in the final three while using Weekly Changing Relationships.
  • S33-S37: Fixing the above bug caused an issue with fan favorite, which was fixed without causing any additional bugs.
  • S33-S37: Fixed issues with targets only displaying on the active episode you are simulating, for weekly changing relationships.
  • S34: Only one tribe should be shown winning immunity in episode 4.
  • S34: Episode 8 now shows individual, rather then tribal immunity.
  • S33-S37: Tribal rewards after swaps were showing the past tribes winning.
  • Palau: Name of merge tribe appearing as <> resolved.
  • S36: Navigation links fixed in episode 10.
  • More special characters are now allowed in season names, tribe names, and player names/nicknames in all of the BrantSteele.net simulators.
  • Original Survivor: Tribe names should no longer turn to lowercase in edit cast.
  • Micronesia, Tocantins, Cagayan: Rare winner display bug showing false tie fixed.
  • Survivor Fiji: Fixed finale episode navigation.
  • Survivor Panama: Fixed the finale reward challenge.
  • Worlds Apart: So’s nickname fixed
  • Samoa: Reward Challenge 10 added to Navigation Links
  • Nicaragua and One World: Final events page just showed the text “1”

Keep reading for more details about the latest Survivor changes.

In order to Change Settings Each Episode, ‘Enable’ it on the first page of each simulated season. You must then select “Proceed” before advancing through the episode. You will need to “Proceed” through each additional episode after you’re satisfied with the relationships and alliances.

The display options have been moved to the right sidebar. These options can be changed without having to re-simulate the whole season.
This is a sample with Tribe History set as Colors. You can also use the names, like past .net seasons, or turn off tribe history display completely.

Thank you for continuing to simulate.

    I love the new colors system 🙂

  • Brant Steele Fan [Guest] January 13, 2019 at 4:22 pm

    Notes for DvG:

    In Tribal Council of the merge episode, colors features only reflects the tribes that the contestants were originally on and does not reflect any tribal swaps.

    The Final Tribal Council of the season has a random F3 and Jury which do not reflect the actual F3 and Jury.

    I am so excited for all of these Survivor updates, you’re the best! Can’t wait to see what’s to come!

      Thanks, tribal council was one episode behind with the tribe display and should be fixed now.

    • Brant [Admin] January 13, 2019 at 6:43 pm

      I’m still trying to figure out the final tribal council issue you saw. Were you using “Change Relationships & Alliances weekly”?

      • Brant Steele Fan [Guest] January 13, 2019 at 7:59 pm

        Yes, it was when was “Change Settings Each Episode” was enabled. The actual winners of the season as reflected on the rankings were correct but the contestants who appeared in the voting and tribal council, etc., were scrambled.

        • Brant [Admin] January 13, 2019 at 8:16 pm

          I am so glad you reported that. I had something fundamental in the wrong order, so you were seeing results from the previously simulated season there until you chose the fan favorite.

          I fixed the ordering, which broke fan favorite, so I fixed that, and now I believe it should work.

          This was a major issue, and I thank you for the details on it.

  • Angelina [Guest] January 13, 2019 at 10:47 pm

    Are we going to put the target and relationships settings up or no?

    • Brant [Admin] January 15, 2019 at 11:44 pm

      What do you mean exactly?

  • Paula Speerling [Guest] January 14, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    Please add big brother brazil season 19 cast

    • Brant [Admin] January 15, 2019 at 11:44 pm


  • Angelina [Guest] January 15, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    For HvHvH, after the tribes switch up for some reason the original healer tribe won reward which does not even make sense since they have swithced tribes.

    • Brant [Admin] January 15, 2019 at 11:44 pm

      I made a very simple mistake, sorry. Fixed now. Thanks for reporting it.

  • Gabriel Law [Guest] January 16, 2019 at 8:16 pm

    Can you upload Hell’s Kitchen S18 Cast?

  • Edwyth [Guest] January 18, 2019 at 2:10 am

    I think in Ghost Island, when people lose their vote, it should display their lack of a vote on the “The Votes” page

  • Lisađź’• [Guest] January 18, 2019 at 5:20 pm

    I would love for elimination charts to be added in Survivor Simulator! We have them in CBB/BBCAN/TheChallenge/TD already~

  • Jacob [Guest] January 18, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    In the Ghost Island simulator

    At the final 10 (when 2 groups of 5 go to tribal council)

    The “Proceed” button on the page with the first group’s votes should take you to the 2nd group’s tribal council, but instead directs you immediately to the next episode (and bypasses the 2nd tribal council, so you have to manually navigate back to see the votes)

    I think this would be an easy screen flow fix! Hope this made sense. Thank you!

    • Jacob [Guest] January 18, 2019 at 7:30 pm

      Edit: please ignore this haha. This happened to me yestersay and I didn’t report it until now, but you’ve already implemented the bug fix haha

      Thanks again!

    Found a bug in David vs. Goliath, looks like idol keeps beign rehidden on David/Vuku to find, while there is no idol that is available on Jabeni/Tiva once an idol on Vuku is found. Screenshot:


  • Romeo [Guest] January 19, 2019 at 5:35 pm

    Can yall add cast pics from other shows? There are so many that are easy to find. Examples are Ex On The Beach USA, Apprentice (non celeb), Project Runway, Love Island, and this is a long shot but, The Bachelor? I think it would be cool to have a lot more cast pictures from shows that I know people who use this site watch.

  • coolKat [Guest] January 20, 2019 at 10:31 pm

    This isn’t about a bug or anything but I left my simulator(webpage open and everything) for maybe 10, 15 minutes tops. And everything reset. I wouldn’t usually mind restarting but it’s a custom cast thing and it took me awhile to find pictures for these characters. And its just annoying ill probably restart it eventually but ugh still

  • Angelina [Guest] January 23, 2019 at 10:26 pm

    Jessica finds the david tribe idol. So when they switch tribes david tribe turns into vuku tribe. And then for some reason gabby finds the vuku tribe idol which jessica already has the david tribe idol. Which david tribe is vuku tribe.

    • Angelina [Guest] January 23, 2019 at 10:26 pm

      The vuku tribe idol was hidden in the swap but the tiva tribe idol was not hidden.
