Construction-Simulator 2015: Liebherr LTM 1300 6.2 DLC

Dear Community,

we are happy to announce the release of the new "LIEBHERR® LTM 1300 6.2" DLC for Construction Simulator 2015!

In addition to the eponymic LIEBHERR® LTM 1300 6.2 mobile crane the DLC also includes an official licensed MAN® TGX 41.640 8x4/4 D38 truck as well as some brand new and exciting missions for friends of virtual construction works!

With the sixth official expansion for Construction Simulator 2015 you get the opportunity to prove yourselves in the transport of really heavy equipment. Silos, yachts, cell towers, large turbines and even an old steam locomotive have to be delivered from different places in the game world to their respective destinations.

Correspondingly the game's large vehicle fleet will be expanded by a LIEBHERR® LTM 1300 6.2 mobile crane with a loading capacity of 300 tons as well as a four-axis MAN® TGX heavy duty truck.

About This Game

Construction Simulator: Gold Edition includes the full version of the simulation hit, all previously released expansions, and more!

19 realistic construction vehicles, including original machines and trucks manufactured by Liebherr, MAN, and STILL, as well as various trailers for the true-to-life MAN tractor truck are all included together in one package for the first time in the Gold Edition. The already extensive motor pool of the core game has been significantly expanded with the Liebherr LB 28 drilling rig, complete with new functions, as well as the Liebherr LR 1300 crawler crane, the Liebherr 150 EC-B flat top crane, and the escort vehicle for heavy loads.

In this game, the developers have paid special attention to creating a game with a realistic feel, whether the player is working on projects or operating vehicles. You can, for example, operate a digger with two joysticks using SAE controls! Common gamepads and steering wheels are also supported.

Explore an expansive, freely navigable world with various towns, fields, and even a highway – alone or with friends in multiplayer mode! If you are successful, then even larger and more lucrative contracts will become available, as well as a new company premises and even more exciting opportunities. Adding to the more than 200 missions included in the original version of the game, the Gold Edition includes additional highlights such as a much requested bridge construction mission and various high-rise building projects!

Are these vehicles and missions not enough for you? The developer weltenbauer has also included their own Construction Kit, which is a powerful tool that will allow you to create your own game content that can be comfortably managed with Steamworks.

The barrier to entry into the world of modding is not particularly high – all you really need is a 3D graphics program like Blender or Gimp, as well as the free version of Unity3D.

Features:

  • 19 true-to-life construction machines made by LIEBHERR, MAN and STILL, as well as 4 trailers for the MAN tractor truck
  • More than 200 tasks, now with drilling missions, high-rise buildings, and bridge construction on more than 150 different construction locations for seemingly endless hours of gaming
  • Realistic vehicle controls, e.g. SAE controls for excavators are supported
  • Cooperative multiplayer mode
  • For beginners and pros: freely switch between arcade and pro controls
  • Gigantic, freely navigable world with varied areas and city quarters
  • Many different dealers and suppliers that can also be visited directly
  • Non-linear, dynamic mission system provides for seemingly endless gaming enjoyment
  • For tinkerers: the modding of construction sites and vehicles fully supported
  • Experience system with levels unlocks special missions
  • A wide variety of gamepads, steering wheels, and joysticks are supported (excluding Thrustmaster devices)

Awful. It's mission-oriented so, you don't get to just go play with the equipment. The manual is a joke and a bad joke at that. The contracts give only partial information. You get to the location expecting to find an article and it's not there. Locations you need to go to aren't even shown on the map.

This game is SO TRASH.

I spend all my time adjusting bugged vehicles to the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ surroudings.
With all my will I tried to enjoy this simulator but when I played it and want to actually do something some annoying things were happening. And steering this machines is terrible. Everything is SLOOOOOOOOOW and boring tho!

I give this stable 6/10
(actually it's pretty fun on the road but I feel like I'm wasting so much time, NFS is just 1000000% more preferable)

Nice game, not too complicated. Yes it has bugs but it can be the fun moments with your friends. I had played C.S.2014 before and C.S.2015 is even better. This game archieved my dreams of my childhood, i used to play with toys about construction but it was't that real, but now my childhood dreams came true. I hope the devs can update more this game such as adding more varient of AI such as buses, trucks, trains, etc. Also, bug fixes and more new vehicles would be awesome.
Bugs i discovered:
1. Echo sound can be heard on the road above the tunnel.
2. Diggng Glitches.
3. Wall glitches- some construction sites' walls can be walk through.
I use a laptop to play and i use the lowest settings, it isn't that lag.

Simply put: if you like simulated construction, this game is for you. You get what you expect, and it does it well.

This isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea. It has a moderate pace, not a lot of action, not a lot of riddles or too much of a plot. But it's a lot of fun to operate heavy machines, construct buildings, trasnport loads, etc. There are a few bugs, but nothing that's a big deal. The way it breaks up construction into a series of steps is good - and gives it the "one more turn" feel that draws you in.

One nice, underrated feature, is that you can have workers complete tasks you don't want to do. If you like buildings a highrise but don't want to use the concrete pump - have a worker do it. If you don't liek driving around to deliver supplies - have a worker do it. If you don't like all the things there are to do, it's a good way of allowing you to essentially "skip" the task.

CS2015 is a fairly realistic game with an enjoyable concept . although construction jobs can be rather time consuming abd i find myself becoming bored , this can be fixed with the use of workers to finish the job within the allocated time slot . Overall i enjoy this game and the realistic and nicely modelled vehicles .

While it might not be the BEST simulator out there, it does great at what it presents to you.

The only downside I see to this game are..
1) The outdated graphics
2) The wonky physics at times (Vehicles/Objects get stuck)

Multiplayer seems wonderfully stable and the content in game seems endless, although some of your "projects' do repeat from time to time, you will see new ones popping up after you complete the first tier of a section or neighborhood.

Definitely recommend to my friends and other players,

This gets a solid 9/10 from me!

Don't normally write reviews, however.

As a sight impaired PC user, games have to be pretty easy to use. ie no minute details, simple uncomplicated game play and engaging.
Yes this games has bugs, the graphic FPS needs looking at and the physics are on the odd side to say the least.
However, for me, it's engaging and fun.
It fulfills lots of the things I will never be able to do as I am disabled.
I will never be know the joy of what it is like to operate a tower crane or an excavator for the fear of death on a moassive scale.
I will also never be allowed to drive a lorry at break neck speed, through a city, fully loaded with the earth I have just loaded. Lets face it, It would be silly to even let me near one, let alone ask me to transport big sets of football stadium flood lights....

So yeah, I rate this game, it has issues that are being ironed out, it's engaging and fun.

If you like that sort of thing....

Which I do...

fricking lorry's, excavators n concrete mixers! Whats not to like.....

As I'm writing this, I've played this game 700 hours and I've enjoyed every minute of it.
It's hard to think of a better value for the money. No game is perfect, but this one has just the right recipe for me.
In addition, a year after release the devs are still very attentive, cranking out updates, bug fixes and DLC. They have also released editing tools and tutorial videos for the modding community.

I've seen negative reviews written by people who played only a few hours, were stumped by some problem outside the game (computer or network problems, most often game controller problems) and had no patience to try to make it work for them. I use two full-size joysticks, a steering wheel and pedals, with no problem whatsoever. All these devices are 10 years old and my computer is 6 years old.

I've also seen complaints by people with unrealistic expectations. While CS2015 is not a perfect technical simulator (what do you expect, it is based on the Unity engine), it is realistic enough that it WILL help you with real-life operation. For example, I sometimes use excavators in real life, and playing this game with two full-size joysticks helps me maintain and improve my dexterity. Also, it is not focused on simulating a single machine, but rather a broad range of them.

But simulation is not the core of this game. Having fun building, driving, operating machines is what it's about, especially in multi-player sessions, which are where the game shines. Some players have complained that there is too much driving, too much delivery. These people obviously have never observed a real-life construction site. It's all about delivering materials when needed and setting them in place with machines. That is what the game does. Running around hammering nails would make a very boring game.

Good game but here are some thoughts...

First off, I'm a big heavy equipment fan. I've been around tractors since I was 3, everybody in my family was in construction at some point or another, it's in my blood. So when I saw there was another heavy equipment sim out, I decided to try it, and approached it with an eager, open mind.

My only other experience with construction sims is with Demolition Company; that was a fun game, but it left you wanting more freedom and construction activities. this game offers just that.

Bugs:
I don't think this game is as bug ridden as people say it is, you've just really got to pay attention to the details. For example: One user wrote he was upset because he was unable to exceed 10KPM in the tipper. I ran into this same issue, then I realized I didn't secure my load and retract the booms all the way. Once I did, I accelerated to much higher speeds.

Physics:
If you've ever operated a real machine, or simply a hand shovel, the digging physics in this game are going to annoy you at first. The excavator physics (once I finally set the joystick functions to CAT/standard US) I was soon annoyed by how unrealistic the digging is. Then I realized how the game thinks you should dig (you'll learn, lol) and it was smooth sailing from there. Digging seems to be the hardest physic to animate and develop for a game, hence the reason this is as far as it's come so far.

I just barely finished the tutorial but, so far, I like the game despite it's quirks. Still, I'm glad on only spend the 60% off sale price on it.

Be patient, I have a feeling things will only get better with these construction simulators. More machines and better physics are inevitable. Just look how far other simulation games have come. Flight Simulator 2000 anybody?

Ok... so since this game is getting mixed reviews, and MOST of the gameplay vids I could find were all some variation of the same job/mission/equipment, I thought I'd throw a writeup together that could actually offer some fresh insights.

What is this game?

The gameplay is mostly doing actual construction. By that I mean, you essentially take various vehicles (flatbeds, dump trucks, cement mixers etc) and drive them from the job site, to the necessary materials dealer. There you purchase the materials, load up with a forklift, or some other medium, and transport them back to the job site. At the job site, you will perform a specific task, that can be tedious/dull/etc. OR, it can be exactly what you're hoping it will be. Allow me to elaborate.

With the mini excavator for example. You're often assigned a task of digging a small trench. As you may expect... this takes time. It's quite repetitive, but it is in fact digging, which is a component of construction, and frankly... a feature that many of you should be interested in playing this game.

I've also used extensively the larger flatbed truck with the crane attached to it. This vehicle I find a little annoying, because the darn health and safety rubes have had their way, and I'm unable to reposition it without completely retracting the boom, and stowing it.

What about the many complaints?

Well... I think the physics are quite alright. Certainly not perfect, but then again... I don't think the physics in Kerbal Space Program, Euro Truck Simulator, or Microsoft Flight Sim are perfect either. BUT... this game is still VERY playable with the current setup. I would'nt even think to consider the physics to be "game breaking".

Other people have complained of game crashing bugs or glitches. I haven't encountered a single one. I thought my game had crashed once, but it was actually my laptop going into hibernate because I had exhausted the battery playing this game.

Also the controls. I'm not entirely sure what people expect here? I'm also not sure what the issue is? I play this game just fine using the keyboard and mouse... INCLUDING some of the more complex equipment. I'm not certain a controller would make it easier either. Fact. Excavators have MANY controls. They have to bind them somewhere on a PC... and while the learning curve may be present, it certainly isn't steep. Controls are a non-factor here. Simple as that.

So then... should you BUY this game?
If you're looking for a game where you can drive some abstract trucks that have a LOT of extra gizmo type functionality (crane parts, dumpers, stabilizers, etc)... and you don't mind doing the leg work involved in ACTUAL construction, with some stages of digging, dumping, pouring, craning added in... then yes. This game is solid. 8/10.

If you're looking for something with a little more hands on, and less transporting... then no. Leave it be.

THE BEST WAY I CAN DESCRIBE THIS GAME IS!
It's like Euro Truck Simulator, with slightly different physics, and the added task of doing the work at the delivery sites, rather than simply delivering. It adds that extra little bit. A great starting point to build off of. But not perfect.

Overall, 7/10. If you're a sim nerd, or a construction fan... bump it to 8/10. If you're looking for ETS... I won't drop any points, but just go play ETS.

I rarely ever write reviews because of the shear amount of reviews but here goes.

TL;DR;
If you can live with a few fun glitches, this game is tons of fun.
Don't do TL;DR - you miss out on life and valuable details!

The long version:
When I first got this game I decided to ignore the "Mixed" review status of the game. I've played tons of early access and alpha / beta games, so bugs and glitches don't mean a whole lot to me. Often they can add a bit of unintended fun to the game and maybe even a few laughs like the flying, hovering, bouncing and wall climbing AI cars in this game - something that seems to have been fixed with the latest updates (sad face: no more fun flying cars).

If anything, I would say that the guys behind this game have gone that extra mile to come up with a very decent way of presenting menus and interaction with the game components. Community suggestions for improving the game UI have been added into the game time and again, just like community feedback on glitches and bugs have been fixed.
Lately a number of major fixes and feature upgrades have been released, which has just made the game that much better.

I've got 70+ hours on this game, even with glitches and hick-ups and I have never really run into anything truely game breaking anywhere in the game. The concept is strong and solid, the missions are nicely varied and there is a nice enough selection of vehicles and work horses in the game to make it that much more fun playing a "simple" simulator. You get to actually dig and move dirt using excavators and trucks, pour cement on building parts and step-by-step build anything from small houses to huge appartment complexes. I wont spoil the game, except to hint that there are special missions worth your time and focus.

When I saw the release of the first DLC for this game, which contains an additional tower crane I didnt even blink before I had completed the Steam transaction for the purchase (the only other game I have ever done this with is EuroTruck Simulator 2). Don't mind the haters on the community hub demanding 6,000 other vehicles: they just want the game to play for them ;)

If you like simulators and heavy equipment, then do not hold yourself back on this title. With or without a discount, it's worth the money regardless. On the plus side, you get a decent amount of unintended fun moments at no extra charge!

My personal oppinion is that the "Mixed" review status no longer applies. The game deserves a more positive status! So do I recomend this game? Yup, definately.

After playing for an hour I have only completed the first job/tutorial. It is a pretty decent game but not for $26 even on sale. Keeping in mind that this is still a new game, I feel that there is a lot of work to be done to improve this game. The controls, like any other game, take time to get used to, that's just a given. Overall, not a bad game and it is easy to get hooked so with that said I do recommend this game but I would suggest waiting for the price to go down unless you just can't wait to try it out.

What a plesant surprise!

In brief, great gameplay for a simulator, brilliant teamplay on multiplayer with little lag, some physic glitches but good reset buttons so they are not impossible to get out of.

Pros;
Great range of real machinery
Good reward and purchase system
Interesting varied missions
Modding and mission editor
Fun 4 player multiplayer coop mode
No lag in multiplayer, even when I was playing on server opposite side of the world
You can save your multiplayer games
Easy reseting of vehicles if accidently glitched
Great easy explination system for every vehicles controls, so learning curve is nice.

Cons;
No LAN gameplay mode
Can glitch if you ram in to something to harsh, or at an odd angle or position.
Terrian graphics aren't as good as they could be, they are nicely done but not exactly cutting edge, although vehicles are lovely.

Conclusion. If your a simulator fan, this is a must buy. If you aren't much of a simulator fan, then it is still worth having a go.

On a side note, you can kick people from your servers, so more unlocked servers would be great, as it will still keep team play going.

There is someone on here reviewing saying the small digger arm doesnt dig, doesn't raise lower, well it does work fine for me, and they tell you how to do it on the easy key guide.
