  • I love your content! Future engineer myself and I love watching your stuff. Subbed :)

  • Wait a minute... if those are skyscrapers.. and you can build a motorway *OVER* the skyscraper.. how tall is that road???

  • This really is a roundabout way to do this

  • should have putted tokyo drift theme song

  • Wow its my city it got a lot of roundabouts xddd

  • Is like my city, Badajoz

  • 6:50 what betrayal lol

  • I just realised that all the roundabouts are facing anti-clockwise (cars go right to left)…

  • Milton Keynes… you just recreated Milton Keynes.

  • The Milton Keynes experience...

  • 0:25 1:09

  • Randabout you were supposed to destroy the traffic, not join him.

  • I would say “don’t give up the day job” but …

  • I'm definitely glad your videos of this game popped up on my feed, I'm buying it next paycheck 👍🏻

  • "ilimited roudabouts" -Viseu (portugal) city planers

  • Oh god, you made Swindon.

  • Is this how Milton Keynes was designed?

  • ✨roundabouts✨


  • 🗡🗡

  • If you get another unlimited roundabouts try placing them at regular intervals. Like leaving 3 x 3 empty and then connecting them/most diagonally. And when week 6 or so just place a moterway from one busy house side to the about 3/4 the other side.

  • this is the one time I'll say lights are completely useless

    • I Lied. use lights on 4 way inersections. like in front of the market on the bridge level. not necessary but it'll help

  • this is so blessed

  • For all those crossroads where you didn’t have space for a roundabout, use the traffics lights. THAT’S WHY WE HAVE TRAFFIC LIGHTS IN USA!

  • Do you get rewards in game or anything for playing the game or is it just to beat the score?

  • 6:50 - Basic roundabout traffic is what's going on there Damn things are dangerous, and traffic generators in anywhere busier than a small town, and should be illegal

  • I just love to think that when he's working and just sees a vacant spot for a road he just goes "Oh I can shove another one there yeah lovely" 1:27

  • Oh god. I'm paused on the picture you showed of "There are roundabouts in the UK like this." WHY?! What is the point? I think we need to stage an intervention, because you Brits clearly have a problem. You're addicted to roundabouts to the point of nonsense.

  • 1:24 that looks absolutely disgusting, lmao

  • I have just started watching and he has already convinced me to subscribe!

  • When you take a sip of vodka everytime he says “Roundabout” *Stop. Stop! He’s already dead!*

  • I think if you had made more liberal use of the pause function and kept the entire map filled with roundabouts you could have prevented anything from spawning and just slowly racked up your score with the first houses and supermarkets. Granted this would have taken a while, but the map doesn't expand infinitely so eventually you could have just left it on fast forward. I wish I had been there to try that daily challenge myself.

  • Imagine your navigation system... in 4 meters go right on the roundabout take the 3th exit then take the roundabout head straight take the 2nd exit then enter the roundabout

  • RCE: "Oh, look! We're got a house in the middle of the..." The vas deferens?

  • Me living in the city: Vomits instantly and continuously until I am swimming in vomit

  • Lol it sounded like he say nigga you beast. At the Time stamp of 7:47, I know he said mikha you beast but listen to that with you eyes closed,

  • this follows dangerously funny's video format and I love it

  • I'm from Indonesia :)

  • To stop traffic put a traffic light what it dose is only let one way go then switches and lets the other way go

  • Goodluck people with trypaphobia


  • The whole city fails if one business fails; surely it would be wise not to build so many IMAX's?

  • A roundabout a day keeps the architect away

  • I only know of 3 roundabouts in my STATE.

  • Ah yes, the best game to watch people play while you’re stuck in traffic (I’m not the driver dw)

  • This is such a roundabout way of doing it

  • I want to see you use the traffic lights haha

  • If I'm not mistaken, I believe it's pronounced, Dar (Like Car, but with a D instead of a C, and a bit of a longer a sound. Dahr) es (like saying S with an Eh before it. "EhS") Sal- (with a long a sound Sahl.) -lam (with a long a Lahm) "Dahr Ehs Sahl-lahm" That's the best I can do.

  • " mikha you beast " 😂😂😂😂😂💔

  • Man just designed a map of France

  • POV: Milton Keynes

  • You should've played roundabout as the background music

  • Area of denial strats

  • I thought it was a clickbait


  • some would say they see some roundabouts ... all I see is thousand eyes staring at me disturbed

  • Anything inconvenient happens: “not ideal”

  • Im hoping someone count how many roundabout RCV said 😂

  • Use traffic lights more! They’re good for congested areas, they control traffic and keep the cars from all getting stuck in one spot

  • Dont waste you money

  • At about the 3-minute mark this really started triggering my trypophobia 😂

  • Nice videos. But your thumbnails are super clickbait. Almost makes me not want to watch but I still am.

  • AHHHHHHHH!!!!!

  • tunnels are only available on maps with mountains

  • 4:38 LOL

  • Welcome to Milton Keynes

  • I felt it when you said, "It does not take long for this game to go wrong". One minute you are proud of what you have done and the next minute the game ends lol.

    • As a French person, this is what I see. A roundabout every 2 seconds.

  • Imagine trying to use a navigation system to get anywhere

  • You could use the traffic lights to stop cars so other cars could move so there's no traffic...

  • *Drags cigarette* Spaghetti Junction? Thats a name I haven't heard in a long time...

  • I really want to buy but don't have money sad:(

  • He’s gonna go roundabout crazy rounda bout now

  • You should play freeways next. The aim is to make the most efficient section of road, connecting freeways. highly recommend it.

  • RCE last video: Gets called out for not using roundabouts RCE this video: Bet

  • 1:54 so, we just gonna ignore that right?

  • me wondering what month is 25 /j

  • First half of this video in a nutshell: *A roundabout can be placed here.*

  • Roundabouts are plain STUPID

  • everything's just roundabouts? you mean milton keynes?

  • As a French person, this is what I see. A roundabout every 2 seconds.

  • This is not tokyo, this is milton keynes

  • Random word of the day: Poggers

  • 2:03 is the same sound as one of my notifications. Got panic when i suddenly heard "DENIED" booming in my ears

  • very cool game over. cars just refuse to drive. nothing stopping them, they just don't want to go

  • 400k subs poggers Engineer Gaming

  • Good job

    • Check Toowoomba in Australia roundabouts don’t work if everyone is stupid

  • your videos made me buy the game 😤

  • This is basically just the UK

  • me my nan crashed her car on one brand new

  • 1:24 that's Swindon's magic roundabout :)

  • all this segregation talk and now this 12:10 ^^

  • Oh btw, the cars being at a standstill is a bug i think. i had it happen in one of my games and had to back out and hit resume from the main menu.

  • Biffas favourite challenge. Unlimited roundabouts

  • Tourists visiting town: *confused screaming*

  • The dream of a spanish mayor

  • I love that this video contains the invention of a new color: ham

  • yeah that's just france

  • 'hello fellow engineer's' me a florist xD

  • dont worry mate, its: meaby roundabouts arent the solution

  • 15:44 , I can agree with rce there. I usually fail because of the darn congestion in the center of the map. It's always purple or light blue that screw me over
