The Totem Pole Simulator Released

Author Brant    Category All, Simulator Updates     Tags

The Totem Pole Simulator has been released on BrantSteele.com. You can simulate the season here.

This is based on a new YouTube reality show by @wesleydbryant. The premise of the show is the following: 13 players compete to avoid the bottom of #TheTotemPole and try to survive the vote until only 1 player remains. You can watch the first episode here to learn more about the format. You can also follow the series on Twitter at @TotemPoleGame

The full cast and logo are also now available to use throughout all of the other simulators. The Totem Pole Simulator is currently a simple simulator in terms of logic, but it contains different twists to create a variety of scenarios simulating. If no major bugs are reported, saving will be added in 48 hours. Please provide your feedback on this simulator and report any bugs in the comments.

1/27 Update: Saving has been added.

2/1 Update: Episode 2 is out here! With this update comes challenge logic to the simulator and the new profiles page. Stay tuned for an additional update with Episode 3 next Friday at 9:00 PM eastern time.

    Would be cool to have a voting chart for this too! Also, at every episode beside the 1st there’s no explanation on who is eligible to be voted. They just go straight to it and all of a sudden this person is eliminated.

      Thank you for the suggestion. Those are great ideas to improve it.

    weird to just add this simulator when BB19, BB20, and BBCAN6 are not published — especially since its been almost 2 years since BB19…

    • Yoshi [Guest] January 26, 2019 at 11:33 am

      I agree, BB19 was supposed to be released 2 yrs ago, I understand people are busy but cmon????? I’d say it’s more a priority than adding something different

      ALSO NO VOTING CHART?????????????

        Big Brother 19 is a simulator that would could take a month or more to design, test, and release. I can make reduced logic, simple simulators in much less time. The Totem Pole simulator was created during fall 2018, and it was refreshing to make something different. Since then, it’s helped remotivate me to continue working on the current simulators like Survivor and re-releasing the Advanced Template on BrantSteele.com. These are both large projects that have seen a lot of progress in the past two months.

        A few people have submitted voting chart ideas. I’d think you should expect one soon!

        Just be thankful. They are working on things behind the scenes and still are giving us stuff.
        Like they are trying their hardest. I’m sure this isn’t easy being able to give everything for everyone when someone demands it. We will be getting Those things in time but appreciate what they are doing for us right now. Whether it be new simulators or cast photos or bug fixes they are working hard

        Seriously, guys? BrantSteele is a site that takes a tremendous amount of work. Instead of complaining (which, contrary to popular belief, is likely not a motivational tool for the owner of the site), appreciate that you have a cool new simulator to play with!

  • BrantFan [Guest] January 26, 2019 at 11:42 am

    It’s fun and I like how there’s different twists everytime you play but I think you should be able to add players competition ability etc so it makes it less random.

    also just a tiiiiny bug but 2 people were voted out by the others (in a twist) and on the placement list at the end one said ‘eliminated’ instead of voted out. it’s small but something I noticed.

    • Brant [Admin] January 26, 2019 at 12:12 pm

      I think those are two good ideas for improvement, thank you.

  • Edwyth [Guest] January 26, 2019 at 3:40 pm

    Brant thanks for everything you do and the Totem sim is fun and different.

    Quick bug I noticed on Survivor Cagayan, on the Winner page under Reunion, when you click on “See how each juror voted.” it redirects to the wrong voting page

  • Paulo [Guest] January 27, 2019 at 8:39 am

    when we will be able to change relationship and profile on the totem pole simulator??

  • Dylan Thomad [Guest] January 28, 2019 at 11:58 pm

    Not sure if it is a bug, but playing through the simulator it seems the Option A & Option B choices are heavily scewed to one side. (most people picking the power over saving someone) not sure if it was planned this way, but it got repetitive seeing no-one saving the person in the bottom until like F6. I’m sure once relationships are introduced it will impact the decision making processes. But right now, it seems like it should he 50/50. I’ll keep playing and see if this was a once off, but it seemed unlikely to have that manny Option B choices (like 90% of the time)

    • Dylan Thomas [Guest] February 4, 2019 at 9:45 am

      Yeah, played the sim a few more times, and Option A rarely occurs.
