Fallout 4 Player Creates Awesome Rube Goldberg Machine

By | 3 months ago 

One contraption loving Fallout 4 player takes it upon themselves to put together an extremely elaborate Rube Goldberg machine in Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG.

The YouTuber UpIsNotJump has decided to take a short break from using Fallout 4 to recreate blockbuster movie trailers like he did not too long ago with the DC Comics and Warner Bros. property Suicide Squad, to instead try his hand at crafting a Rube Goldberg machine within the open world title. Of course, in order to create the over-engineered behemoth, UpIsNotJump attempted to use as many items found within the action-RPG as possible, while also utilizing the game’s Contraptions Workshop add-on, which is the first of three DLC packs for Summer 2016.

As is to be expected, the device’s construction is much more elaborate than required, and UpIsNotJump created it to perform a task in an incredibly complicated fashion simply to give a nod to a cutaway gag found within an old Family Guy episode that uses the concept of Rube Goldberg machines for a joke’s premise. The YouTuber even goes the extra mile to set the clip in Fallout 4‘s pre-war era just to have the environment resemble the Griffins’ house on Spooner Street as closely as possible.

As seen in UpIsNotJump’s video below, the YouTuber incorporates chutes, slides, conveyor belts, weighted pads, conduits, cannon balls, teddy bears, mini-nukes, the Vault-Tec representative’s sales van, and much more just to achieve a basic operation back to where it all was initially triggered. Rather than break it down bit by bit, though, Fallout 4 fans would do well to watch the footage below and marvel at UpIsNotJump’s ridiculously convoluted creation.

A lot of Fallout 4 players will probably be quick to point out that UpIsNotJump couldn’t have made his particular Rube Goldberg device operational without having used mods. As a matter of fact, the YouTuber even mentions his reliance on them in the video’s description, saying that NexusMods was a major resource of his due to certain restrictions in place which didn’t allow him to put objects from the Contraptions Workshop DLC anywhere he wanted.

While UpIsNotJump has stated that he will soon be turning his attention toward creating a full video on how to use Fallout 4‘s Contraptions Workshop DLC in different ways, a lot of fans of the post-apocalyptic RPG are surely looking forward to the game’s next expansions. For those unaware, the next add-on, Vault-Tec Workshop, will give players access to vaults all of their own in which they can play out mad scientist fantasies by experimenting on other Vault Dwellers.

Unfortunately, however, after Vault-Tec Workshop releases, Bethesda has declared that it will be followed by the last DLC, which is Nuka World. So, even though Fallout 4‘s post-launch content is going to be wrapped up before the end of 2016, it’s important to note that it will at least give the studio additional time to begin focusing more on developing its two new games, which have been described as major-scale projects rivaling both Fallout 4 and Skyrim.

Fallout 4 is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
