The new version of The Biopack, “The Stud.io Pack Formerly Known as The Biopack” is here!
Despite being cancelled, the Biopack is bio-back. Now with new parts, improved parts, and plenty of fixes to make the building experience as smooth as possible, the Biopack is ready for everyone! I have many, many people to thank, but I’d like to thank OhluCG and @Kanguin for their work on making these lovely promotional images! I’d also like to thank modelers like Krayday, OhluCG, Grampa Walker, and Lehvak Nuva. For more in-depth credits and installation instructions, check the readme file in the pack.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Hey, why’d this take so long?
Because of lots of procrastination with all parties involved and behind-the-scenes problems I can’t and don’t want to elaborate on.
What’s new in the pack?
Lots of new parts, but most obviously Visorak parts and Hordika weapons, a new and improved Metru torso, and completely overhauled fan-favorite masks like the Avohkii and Lhikan’s Hau!
Wait, why are there so many duplicate parts? Aren’t some of these already in Studio?
One of the behind-the-scenes problems I can elaborate on is that when the Studio team added the batch of Bionicle parts to Studio, they added outdated and inaccurate models we fixed months ago, not knowing they were going to add the models in the first place. As such, any duplicate parts are improved and more accurate.
What about these parts that have that weird black portion?
Those require Swamp Kryakwa’s colorpacks, found in the links above. They massively improve the rendering capabilities of Studio, and even have marbled colors to play with! It is highly recommended you install them with the Biopack.
Why is my Studio running slower?
That’s an inherent flaw arising from the nature of the Studio and PartDesigner integration. Sadly, we can’t do anything about that at this time.
What’s the future of the Biopack?
Right now, uncertain. While I am massively grateful for the chance to complete and polish the Biopack for the benefit of myself and every other Studio builder, I have no plans to release updates beyond fixes of the Biopack for now. However, if someone else is willing to take the reins, be my guest - and tell Lehvak Nuva I sent you. Update: i’m in it for one more run, it seems - contact me if you have any questions!
