The Contraptions Workshop add-on for Fallout 4 doesn’t add any cool weapons or unique Power Armor, but it does include tons of awesome toys to play around with in your settlements. You’ll be able to summon elevators, Steel Balls, and an endless array of builders to create the factory of your dreams. The Contraptions Workshop is all about creativity, and why put a limit on creativity?
That’s why we’ve put together a list of cheats and content IDs to get you started spawning new settlement pieces in the Commonwealth. Below you’ll find instructions and full explanations to get the developer console working for you. Keep scrolling to find our expansive (and growing) list of Content IDs and codes to spawn items. It might be cheating, but it’s too much fun to ignore.

How to Spawn Items Using Console Commands
Start spawning stuff fast with our quick console command breakdown.
- Open the console command input window; press [`] or Tilde
- The game will pause and a prompt will appear in the lower-right corner of the screen.
- Input: player.addItem [Content ID] [###]
- player.addItem = This console command spawns the desired item into your inventory.
- [Content ID] = Every item in Fallout 4 has a unique content ID. Find the full list of Content IDs for Far Harbor weapons and armor listed below.
- [###] = This is the amount of items you will spawn into your inventory.
- For example, if you want to spawn a Harpoon Gun in your inventory, type the following command:
- player.addItem ##010b81 1
- ## refers to the FORM ID. Depending on the number of mods / expansions installed, your load order will be different.
- To resolve this issue, simply test your Far Harbor load order number by testing the following commands:
- player.addItem 01010b81 1
- player.addItem 02010b81 1
- player.addItem 03010b81 1
- player.addItem 04010b81 1
- player.addItem ##010b81 1
- Once you learn the FORM ID of Far Harbor, replace all Far Harbor Content ID [##] entries with your particular number; 01, 02, 03, 04, and so on.
- If you only have Far Harbor installed and no mods or additional expansions, your LOAD ORDER number will be . Ex. player.addItem 01010b81 1
