The Real 7th Toa Returns - Bionicle Heroes: Voriki Mode Releases

vorikimode logo 12


Twenty years ago, rumours began to circulate of a 7th Toa - one who used the element of lightning and carried the rare colour of royal purple. This legend was disproven by the existence of Takanuva - but now, the rumours are made true once again as Voriki finds his way to Voya Nui to defeat the evil Piraka!

This mod pioneers Vertex Editing, a new method of modding Heroes that allows for model manipulation. Whilst it's not yet possible to import completely custom models, vertex editing allows modders to inject plenty of personality into their projects provided you're willing to go through the steps necessary. Whilst Double Vision was the first released mod with vertex editing implemented, Voriki was the first model created this way and all of this would not be possible without Hexadecimal Mantis, who created the scripts and also created Voriki in Heroes himself. I then lent a hand with content like HUD icons and weapon models to learn vertex editing in greater depth, and the result is a comprehensive character replacement mod for Heroes - and the first of many possibilities for what can be done with this methodology!

Without further ado - here's what you're getting into with Voriki Mode!


Gameplay

-Jaller Level 1-3 (now Voriki Level 1-3) has been replaced by a "lightning" railgun attack similar to Kongu from Double Vision

Examples:

Visuals

-Replaced all Jaller-related HUD icons with Voriki-like icons
-Replaced the Jaller-related splashscreen with the classic Voriki fake
-Jaller's mask has been vertex edited into a "star" shape and coloured purple, transforming him into Voriki
-Jaller's Level 1, 2, and 3 weapons have all been vertex edited to fit Voriki better, with a "railgun" aesthetic
-Jaller's body texture has been recoloured to be similar to Voriki's Mata-body incarnation

Examples:
