Upcoming Downtime Notice

Author Brant    Category All, Misc.     Tags

There will be maintenance to the BrantSteele.net server on Thursday between the hours of 3AM and 5AM EST. This could also be considered late Wednesday night depending on interpretation of time. The maintenance will affect the Big Brother, Hunger Games, and Survivor Simulators.

Expect brief downtime, which will reset all active simulations at the time. There will also be a potentially longer period of time where loading and saving seasons will be unavailable.

This maintenance is being made to improve the performance of the server. If it does cause new issues, these will be resolved during the day on Thursday.

Update: Maintenance for BrantSteele.net is complete. Please report any issues you see after the changes.

The Challenge Chosen Format

Author Jacob    Category All, Updates     Tags

Some months ago, we talked about creating a simulator for one of the formats from The Challenge. The last time we brought it up, users voted between thirteen formats selected by myself and Brant. Of course, we have known the format you all selected for a while now, but with the release starting to come to fruition, we figured we would tease it by slowly revealing the cast of the chosen format. There is still no determined date for release, but we are making progress.
