Build a brighter future underground with the all-new Vault-Tec Workshop. Create a massive Vault and attract new Dwellers using pre-war industrial kits complete with retro-nostalgic furniture, lighting, and art. And like every good Overseer, run Vault-Tec approved experiments on your Dwellers to learn what makes an ideal citizen. Vault-Tec has given you the tools, the rest is up to you!— Official description

Vault-Tec Workshop is the fifth add-on, and third workshop add-on for Fallout 4. It triggers automatically once level 20 is reached and the player character is outside the Institute. It will also trigger upon traveling to Quincy Quarries, which is south of Jamaica Plain.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The vault door under Structures > Doors is a scaled-down 1x3 tiled-version of a vault door, and is a reference to Fallout 1.[6]
  • The majority of new objects added are simply a 'clean version' of the filthy ones already on the game.
  • Most prefabricated tiles already have wiring built in.
  • Vault power conduits transfer power from and to vault structures. This not only saves a lot of space and resources but also allows for better-looking structures, without needing to run wires all around.
  • Vault prefab structures cannot be built outside Vault 88 until the quest Lady Luck is complete.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

This add-on bears a number of similarities to the mobile game Fallout Shelter, such as constructing a vault and maintaining a community within it. Vault dwellers in the DLC will also occasionally say lines that previously appeared in Fallout Shelter, such as, "Who do you think would win in a fight, a lumberjack with tentacle arms or a shark riding a unicycle?"

Bugs[edit | edit source]

PCIcon pc.png Playstation 4Icon ps4.png Xbox OneIcon xboxone.png A bug can occur in the DLC wherein a supply line appears between Vault 88 and another random settlement. The trigger for this is unknown, but it can occur at any point after the initial quest is given, even before gaining access to the Vault 88 workshop.[7]
