Survivor Edge of Extinction Simulator Released & Saving for S33-S38

Author Brant    Category All, Simulator Updates     Tags

A simulator has been released for Survivor 38: Edge of Extinction, along with saving for seasons 33-38. The original plan was to complete the Survivor Custom Template first and then release these seasons using the new features. This plan was adjusted because of how long it’s taken to complete the Survivor Template and the lack of other updates in May.

Once the Survivor Custom Template is released, new seasons for 33-38 will replace the current ‘test’ seasons. Therefore the ‘saved’ simulations for these seasons are temporary and will be removed with a one month notice after the Custom Template is released. The main weakness in these seasons (including the new 38) is the lack of secret advantage functionality. Standard idols do work, however. Please leave any feedback here and report any bugs you see with this season. Thank you.

Also thank you to Edwyth and Eric for testing the season and Commentarian for contributing feedback on its direction.

Expect to see more simulator updates throughout June, including further development with the updated Hunger Games Simulator. Other top results from the recent surveys will enter new stages of planning and development. There may be a cast photo update.

Survivor 40 Prediction Game

Author Brant    Category All, Miscellaneous     Tags

There will be a BrantSteele Prediction Game for Survivor 40 hosted on BrantSteele.org. Sign-ups officially open Friday, May 24th at 8:00 PM EST. This contains cast spoilers.

You must register an account for it and confirm your email. You can do this before sign ups open.

The Prediction Game was brought back this season because the cast was revealed early, before any spoilers have come out. Sign-ups will only be open for a limited time – currently set for one week. Thanks to Inside Survivor for posting the rumored cast.

Sign-ups are now live.

Update: Sign-ups were temporarily stopped due to an email account validation issue. Sign-ups have been re-opened, and accounts are no longer needed.

2019 Next Simulator Survey

Author Brant    Category All, Miscellaneous     Tags

There are two simulators that I’d like to finish and release before doing anything new. The Hunger Games Simulator update is being tested, which includes importing and exporting casts with a text file. The Survivor Custom Template is still being programmed.

We had 92 submissions for ‘next new simulator’ before the poll was closed due to spam and trolling. Some of the results are not easily programmable and were discarded, but we’re going to do several rounds of polling to narrow down the choices. Each poll will last ~24 hours this round.

The poll for 4/22 was “Which cooking show would you most want to see made into a BrantSteele simulator?” Advancing: Hell’s Kitchen (43%), MasterChef (35%)

The poll for 4/23 was “Which dating show would you most want to see made into a BrantSteele simulator?” Advancing: The Bachelor/Bachelorette (37%), Are You the One? (28%)

The poll for 4/24 was “Which dating show would you most want to see made into a BrantSteele simulator?” Advancing: Escape The Night (22%), Whodunnit (19%), Mafia/Town of Salem/Werewolf (15%), Clue (14%). Because Escape The Night won, I’ll evaluate merging this show with the single-killer Danganronpa simulator.

The poll for 4/25 is “Which designing show would you most want to see made into a BrantSteele simulator?” Advancing: Project Runway (57%)

The poll for 4/26 is “Which singing/dancing talent show would you most want to see made into a BrantSteele simulator?” Advancing: The Voice (20%), American Idol (15%), America’s Got Talent (14%), Dancing With the Stars (13%), Produce 101 Series (11%), The X Factor (10%).

The criteria for advancing was to win or finish with 10% of the leader.

The top 48 have been set from round 1, and details on round 2 will be posted shortly.
