"Fallout 4," the popular video game of publisher Bethesda, has received a new Contraptions DLC that enables players to use conveyer belts, scaffolding kits, track kits, and even logic gates to construct complex gadgets to improve their Wasteland settlements.
"The Contraptions Workshop also includes all-new features like elevators, greenhouse kits, warehouse kits, fireworks, armour racks and more," says a post on the official website, describing the DLC. The DLC is currently out on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One. The DLC released on June 21, 2016.
Bethesda had unveiled details about Contraption DLC and two other DLCs — Vault-Tec Workshop and Nuka-World at the recently-concluded E3 2016.
The contraptions allow players to combine new items to make machines in the settlement. Bethesda knows well that players in the game love to get creative and has provided them with the right tools to try new stuff.
Here are some of the videos shared by players, courtesy Gameranx:

The DLC lets players unlock some crazy items by achieving the three trophies:

- Show Off Achievement — Display a weapon on a weapon rack, armour on an armour rack, and power armour in a power armour display.
- Mass Production Achievement — Produce 100 objects from your builders
