If you are trying to find the best Bonelab mods for PC and Quest 2, you may be struggling to narrow things down. After all, Bonelab is set up to support the inventiveness of the modding community. As such, you may be suffering from choice paralysis.
If there are too many for you to choose from, we can help. We've selected a handful of our favourite mods, so you can play with a different avatar of your choice. Without any further ado, let's check them out.
Best Bonelab Mods for PC and Quest 2
As we mentioned above, mods are a big part of the Bonelab experience, as Stress Level Zero has already given access to the Marrow SDK, for anyone who wants to have a go at creating their own mods. After you’ve figured out how to install Bonelab mods, you are going to want to try them out.
But if you don't have the knowledge of how to use Unity, or you simply don't have the time to create your own, here are a few of our favourites that you can quickly and easily download and use yourself.
We've taken these from the Mod.io website, where thousands of mods are already available. We would also suggest using this website instead of alternatives like Nexus.
Did anybody call for a webslinger? With the Spider-Man avatar, players can choose which suit they want Spider-Man to wear, red or black. This is a good choice for anyone who wants a human-sized, fast character. Plus, it's Spider-Man. What's not to love?
This is one of the highest-rated Bonelab mods on Mod.io, with 99% positive rating after nearly 25000 downlaods.
Rovert's Super Mario 64 Modpack
If you're a fan of Super Mario 64 - and let's face it, you should be - then the Super Mario 64 mod pack is a great trip down memory lane. This is by no means the finished article, either. The creators of the mod have written that:
The modpack will get more updates in the future as SLZ updates the SDK to include more features.
At some point, I plan to transform this into a full-length campaign.
If they can pull this off, it could be quite something.
One of the more interesting aspects of the avatar mods in Bonelab is the ability to massively change the physical dimensions of your character. And massive is the operative word with this Iron Giant mod.
It's a really big avatar, which means that there are some challenges with performing certain functions, for example picking up small items. But it is really strong, which can be a big advantage.
One for the Star Wars fans, this Boba Fett avatar looks great, is human-sized, but is also pretty strong. Which could be a pretty solid combination for Bonelab.
GM Big City
This is already one of the most downloaded mods on Bonelab. As the name suggests, it's a big city. It's a large map, with lots of buildings in it. Like a city.
Golf Cart for Bonelab
What do we need to say? The golf cart is the quintessential vehicle for wreaking havoc very slowly. One point from the developer worth noting before you use this: do not use a character much larger than the basic body type. If you do, you may get stuck in the roof of the golf cart.
Which is hilarious for everyone else. But less so for you. You have been warned. 99% of almost 14000 people who've downloaded this love it.
Next on our shortlist is a full recreation of Wushu Island - the tropical island which made its debut back on in Wii Fit.
It's a sandbox for players to go exploring. And offers a change of pace from playing the main game.
LabWorks (Boneworks Port)
Some modders, such as volx64, are not content with simply adding an avatar. Oh no. How about adding an entire game? that's the ambition with this particular mod, to introduce the entire Boneworks game into Bonelab.
At the time of writing, this mod only contains a museum level. But the ambition remains to eventually build out the rest of the game and make it available as a mod.
We're returning to the Star Wars universe for this because frankly, lightsabers are cool. This mod offers 47 different lightsabers to choose from, including Yoda, Venteres, Rey and Starkiller's. An elegant weapon for a more civilised age? Or just something really fun to run around with?
Already on its fourth update is the hugely popular convenience store mod. It remains under construction at the time of writing, but offers an entertaining enviroment in which to wreak havoc. Its creator ultimately hopes to have a level which includes the 7/11 store, an apartment, a road, and an underground area.
It's already proven to be mightily popular, with a 98% approval rating from over 81000 downloads.
We've only selected a handful of the best mods for Bonelab, and more are being added all the time. If you want to use any of these, carefully read the instructions for installing them. In the majority of cases, it's simply a matter of dragging the right file (depending on whether you are on PC or Quest) and dropping it in the mods folder (AppData/Locallow/Stress Level Zero/Project 4/Bonelab/Mods). But each mod will give you specific instructions.
