Contraptions is the term for machines, buildings, and prop based weapons made by players in-game. It can be made using Garry's mod's default tools or Community Addons from the Workshop.


Although the term contraption is used for all players' creations in-game, many types of them exist.

Basic contraptions[]

Basic contraptions are generally built by new players. They are the most easy to build and manipulate. They can be statues or any another simple creation that don't even have names.

Vehicle Contraption[]

Although scripted vehicles can be found in the spawn menu, some vehicles can be built by the use of Props, Thrusters and more.


Depending on the player, there may be extremely complex structures or very simple structures.


These are created by persons that have forts or want to test and create new weapons .
