Seems limited

Recommended Posts

I just got the Hero Designer (only learned of this system today) and wanted to start toying around with it building some characters. However, it only has the core book in it. Assuming their are prefabs or other thing that expand its content right? Love to get more into this system, but if their online builder one has this...idk.

I think you're misunderstanding the point of the software...and the system in general. 

 

HD has everything you need to build anything within HERO System Sixth Edition (or Fifth Edition).  The supplements generally contain abilities and characters that are built using the rules defined in the core books.  You can enter these into HD on your own (as needed), or you can purchase the character packs for the various books in question.

For the most part, correct.  Some (like APG2) have new rules constructs, but they're either just extensions of existing core rules (which HD handles already), new way to use core rules (again, handled inherently in HD), or toolkitting approaches that change the core rules (and are therefore not a part of HD).  The latter is typically left to either a custom rules template or just a Custom Power within HD, on the occasions that they arise.
