Technical Questions

I’m experiencing issues with the game. What can I do?

  • To rule out external problems, it is recommended to first perform the following steps:
  • Apply any operating system updates (Windows Update / console system software).
  • Check drivers and configuration software and update if necessary (especially graphics card and input devices).
  • Many issues are related to incorrectly downloaded or incorrectly installed game files. To make sure that everything is working correctly, the installation of the game can be checked in Steam.
    • Steam Library → Construction Simulator → Properties → Local Files → Verify integrity of games files.

Savegames

On PC Savegames are stored at the following location:

  • C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\LocalLow\weltenbauer-se\ConSim\Profiles
  • Every profile (character, name, …) is stored in its own folder. Profil0 is the first Profil in game, Profile1 the second one and Profile2 the third.
  • The data of the profile is saved in the file Profile.wb in the specific folder.
  • In every profile folder there are folders for every company for this profile. They are in the same order as in the game when selecting a profile.
  • Companies have two files: Company.wb which contains the ingame progress of the company and e.g. the progress of jobs and CompanyMeta.wb, which contains the data of the company which the UI needs to show the status.
  • Settings on PC are stored at:
    • C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\LocalLow\weltenbauer-se\ConSim\Settings\ Settings.wb.
  • In addition, user data (profil independent achievement information, stats) is saved here:
    • C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\LocalLow\weltenbauer-se\ConSim\UserData\UserData.wb

Backup of Savegames

Savegames are synced to the Steam Cloud on PC. You can have a look at the uploaded data or download the data here.

On consoles the savegames are stored as you’re used to, using the platform defaults. You maybe need a paid account plan for the platform to use it.

On PC there is an additional backup system for savegames whenever the game auto saves (every 10 minutes). A copy of the profile, company and user data is stored then.

For questions about savegame backups feel free to ask the support team.

Do you want to import a backup on your own, follow these steps:

  • In the folder described above there are backup folders containing the last 5 versions of profile, company and user data. To restore one of them, you can replace the profile, company or userdata file with the backup file.
  • Have a look at the modification date of the files to identify them.
  • E.g. you can rename the file „backup_3_Profile.wb“ to “Profile.wb” and replace the current Profile.wb file with this copy to restore this backup.
  • Note: For companies always replace Company.wb and CompanyMeta.wb because they have to match!

Performance issues on older platforms

  • On the older generation of consoles (PlayStation®4/Pro and Xbox One/S/X), you may experience performance drops in certain situations. We are continuously trying to improve this.

My graphics card gets warm or is used up to 100%

  • On newer graphics cards, it can happen that the graphics card load goes to 100%. To avoid this, you can limit the frame rate of the game on PC via Steam. To do so, simply add the following to the “Starting Options” field in your Steam library under Construction Simulator → Properties → General to limit the frame rate to 60 frames per second: -targetframerate=60
