The Challenge: The Duel Simulator Demo

Author Brant    Category All, Updates     Tags

The Challenge: The Duel simulator has been released in Demo form.

Some of the challenges are completed and have been added with full details while the challenges that are in progress have been disabled and replaced with generic challenge text. This simulator uses full logic, but the reasoning descriptions were replaced with generic reasoning text because they need to be improved. A full release should occur this month. Some of the recent challenges were not tested very thoroughly, so any user feedback, testing, and bug reports would be appreciated. Thank you.

The next blog entry should be posted on Friday night with the second version of the Survivor 33 algorithm.

    I have a couple bugs to point out. First off, the alliances are just called Alliance Name, and on episode 1 when i proceed to the challenge, it skips me to the final challenge. That’s all I saw now, I’ll check if there’s more

      Thanks, fixed both of these. The alliance names will adjust when you re-simulate.

    There should have been better player reasoning text, but apparently I overwrote these with code related to Survivor at some point in the past several months. I didn’t realize the issue until earlier tonight.

    I’ll be able to restore the original reasoning descriptions in the near future.

    I found 2 more bugs. First off, in most episodes at the selection process, it lists who wasn’t picked before the last selection. Also in episode 12, when the teams have to break the ice blocks, some people only grab one block and break two. Some don’t have any blocks at all and break about 3.

      I’ll look more closely into the episode 12 challenge. I believe when Jacob and I were planning, we set those who weren’t picked before the last selection because that was how the show did it, but I’ll double check.

    Hey Brant. Just a minor typo I spotted
    Where the news is on .com, it says 1/3/16. We went back a year? XD

      I originally said 1/13/16 and thought I fixed it by changing it to 1/3/16. Oops. Thanks.

    Could we get an explanation of the format on the format page?

      That’ll be added. It was one of the final things on the to-do-list.

    Not sure if this has been said or not or if it only happened to me but the loyalty settings if I create the alliances on the first week is different then what I had input

      Also another thing I noticed (again not sure if already mentioned or only a problem for me) but in The Challenge on episode 1 it doesnt show who unlocks the harness first for the girls yet shows their picture. Its just a minor thing but I just thought I would bring it up

        Also in Episode 15 during the challenge it says Girls compete for prize and guys compete for safety even though both compete for safety in the end and the two losers of each gender compete in the duel

    Thanks for the feedback. The bugs will continue to be fixed, along with Survivor 33.

    not sure if it’s a bug, because I’ve never seen the Challenge. But i’d assume the person who isn’t picked for safety, goes into the elimination Duel. But for some reason the Duel player is randomly selected, and then they pick someone they want to play against. I don’t understand why it’s randomly decided.

    Also, you said this:
    “we set those who weren’t picked before the last selection because that was how the show did it, but I’ll double check.”

    That may be true, but on a simulator it just seems weird and out of place. Like in Total Drama Marshmallow Ceremony, if there was 2 people left and the host is like “Owen you’re out” then “Gwen recieves the final Marshmallow”. But that’s just my opinion.

    Also, the poll challenge made no sense to me. They were taking rings off others polls, then placing rings on others polls? When the descprition comes, it might help me understand that.

    Also, when the ice challenge happens, some people get “0” even if they did break ice cubes.

    I like how in most challenges, guys score better than girls. I’m not sexist, but science tells us men are naturally stronger, so I would expect, on average the males should get higher scores on physical score-based challenges.

    One last thing, I’ve noticed one person seems to win basically every challenge, this isn’t necersarrily a bug, but I thought I should share, since it’s happened a few times

    There’s a weird bug for the team not playing for safety in the first two challenges.

    In Challenge 1, for the group playing for reward, it just shows a picture of the winner without saying ” opens the hatch!” or whatever the text is supposed to be.

    In Challenge 2, again for the group playing for reward, once a winner is decided no image shows up and it says “wins with rings left”.

    Neither of these bugs occur for the team playing for safety, which I find interesting.
