Hello, Greg, I’m asking this to hopefully get some clarification. You have answered this question 4 times before, and I know you said previous answers take precedence, but each of them have either been vague or don’t make sense, and I’ll try to show why I think this is.
1 Would it be safe to assume/is it possible that the making of the Kanohi Olmak involves a Teleport disk?
1 No, because that is not what the Olmak does. It opens dimensional gates – that is not the same as teleportation. Teleportation means one second you’re here, the next you’re there, with no awareness of movement – what Olmak does is dump you someplace else, that you are aware of, and then dump you out someplace else, often requiring measurable time in the intervening place.

This same reasoning could be used for, say, the Miru because it has the power of levitation, not teleportation, although in canon it does require at least a teleport disk (“Kanoka Disk.” Encyclopedia Updated, p. 53).
7a. Reconstitutes at Random + Enlarge + Teleport + Regeneration -> Olmak
7 There may not be Kanoka combinations for those masks, as they were not made in Metru Nui, so most likely were not made using the disk method

You originally said the same thing about the Mask of Mutation requiring a Reconstitute at Random disk, but changed your answer to that it does require one.
1 Would you say that a Kanohi Mask of Mutation would be made out of a Reconstitute disk?
1 No, because it wasn’t made on Metru Nui so most likely was not made from a disk

Was the Mask of Mutation made from Reconstitute at Random Kanoka?
Not solely, no

BioSector01 currently has the second answer as the canon one.
4 What disks are needed for an Olmak? Surely it’s just a teleportation disk… But then why were there only two Olmak? (Olmak = Mask of Dimensional Gates)
4 Don’t recall, it was too long ago.

This answer gives no confirmation one way or the other.
What would be needed in terms of disks to forge an Avsa, Olmak, Felnas, Tryna, Suletu, Kadin, Faxon, Mask of Emulation, etc.
I don’t have info on the disk combinations that create different powers. I didn’t need that for story, so never came up with it.

I completely understand this, as like you said, it wasn’t needed for the story, but after all this, would you still have a problem with the Olmak being made with at least a teleport disk? It would make sense to me at least because you are, in a sense, “teleporting” between dimensions. I apologize for the long read, but would appreciate some clarification on the issue.
