The Survivor Tocantins Update has been released.

Survivor Tocantins is the next Survivor season to be updated. This season once again includes exile island, along with introducing a new mutiny twist.

The next season to be released for Survivor will be Gabon. The seasons of Samoa, Heroes vs. Villains, and beyond will introduce more of the profile attributes along with explained jury reasoning.

Thank you to everyone who has been testing and reporting bugs. I’m also gathering feedback in the following Google Doc: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Y1lgf1F9ApYuwSUQV9aLH0SNT-yYLSYMKO6z4Y2UiIo/

Big Brother 23 Cast Photos Added

Author Brant    Category All, Cast Photos     Tags

Two sets of cast photos for the upcoming Big Brother 23 reality television show have been added to all of the simulators. One of these sets has a consistent background, and the other set varies per photo. There were issues with the quality of both sets, but it’s likely that CBS will release better cast photos in the days ahead. If so, these will replace the current photos and be default if and when a simulator is made.

Big Brother 23 premieres Wednesday, July 7th at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Survivor Micronesia Upgraded & Saved Simulation Reminder

Author Brant    Category All, Simulator Updates     Tags

The Survivor Micronesia Update has been released.

This season features 2 tribes of 10 along with an Immunity Idol hidden on Exile Island. If this idol is rehidden after the episode 13 tribal council, it will instead be hidden at the merge tribe camp. Thank you for those who tested the season and provided feedback. New features are gradually being introduced to Survivor such as stamina adjustments and the ability for players to join existing alliances in events, and all feedback on these changes is welcome.

Reminder: For those of you who want to preserve your existing saved simulations, here is a description of the current deletion policies. These policies will be more strictly enforced in the near future. Please ask if you have any questions.

– Saved simulations will be cleared 3 months after the last view by default.

– Saved simulations will remain available for 1 year after the last view if the ‘Keep Longer’ option is selected in the Advanced Options page.

– Once a saved simulation is deleted, it is not possible to recover it.

– Just because your code isn’t listed on the ‘Your Seasons’ page, it does not necessarily mean your saved simulation was deleted. Your internet connection may have changed, and it could still be possible to recover it.

Survivor Fiji Upgraded & Stamina Added to All .com Survivor Seasons

Author Brant    Category All, Simulator Updates     Tags

The Survivor Fiji Update has been released.

Survivor Fiji is the next Survivor season to be updated. This season features a Have and a Have Not camp twist, and the idols function differently based on the twist.

In addition, all .com Survivor seasons now have the new Profile attribute called Stamina activated. Stamina controls how well a player maintains their energy level throughout a season, which can range from 0% to 100%. Energy allows a player to do well on challenges and perform other actions such as finding idols. Merge feasts and winning reward challenges can increase a player’s energy while exile island and poor camp conditions can decrease it. A player with low energy is more likely to be medically evacuated. There are new stamina-based events, but these are only enabled by default for Fiji and China until more testing is done to make sure the balance is correct.

Thank you to everyone who has been testing and reporting bugs. I’m also gathering feedback in the following Google Doc: Feedback Survey

Edit: The following bugs were also fixed with AU Survivor 2018:
– Beggar’s table auction winner can no longer bid on more items
– Tribe history colors spoiled colors the Save/Send twist
– Merge idol was being hidden a round late

You can keep reading for more details on Fiji’s idol.
