Construction Simulator (German: Bau-Simulator) is a simulation video game developed by weltenbauer. Software Entwicklung GmbH in Germany, and published by Astragon Entertainment. By utilizing a number of construction vehicles and hardware, players can either single-handedly build parks, houses, and other structures, or coordinate with other players to efficiently complete construction projects.

In addition to utilizing construction hardware, players will also have to manage their funds when buying the resources necessary to complete the projects, as well as transportation to get these resources to the construction site. Each of the two available open-world maps - one set in the United States, the other in Germany - has a story campaign to go with it, as well as other projects such as road surfacing.

Traffic Incidents[edit]

Unlike other similar driving games, players can be fined for running red lights, crashing into other cars, and breaking the speed limit. Pedestrians cannot be run over, and instead phase through vehicles. Traffic violations can be disabled in the settings menu. Traffic and pedestrian activity can be reduced or eliminated altogether to make for easier driving, albeit through a ghost town.

While players can be fined for running through red lights, players will not be fined for driving around red lights, driving on sidewalks, or breaking other traffic laws.

It is not possible for players to die. Driving into rivers, wading into the ocean, or touching the surface of a swimming pool will simply reset the player back onto the nearest road while playing the Wilhelm scream. Stuck players have the option to click a Reset button to teleport to the nearest road while immediately putting your vehicle into drive.


Up to four players can collaborate with each other in-game, but all construction projects can be completed with a single person. Due to German laws, there is no text chat or voice communication between players.

In order to unlock multiplayer content, the host must first complete (or skip) the beginning tutorial.

As the host, your company and its money will be used in the game. Progress and profits will be recorded to the company the other players join. The host, indicated by a crown, has all rights (same as in single player mode) and manages the company while assigning roles to the other players.

The four roles are outlined below:

Icon Title Permissions
Temp icon. Temp Requires owner permission to purchase items.
Employee icon. Employee May purchase items without owner permission.
Foreman icon. Foreman May purchase construction materials and accept new contracts without the owner's permission.
Owner icon. Owner Game host. Has all permissions, like in single player.
