Specto was once Genesis. Created by a popular developer who goes by the handle of Lambda, the same developer responsible for Exodus and now Bubbles. When Lambda moved on, another developer started maintaining the source code for this add-on. It’s now what is commonly referred to as “forked.” Over the past 2yrs, this add-on has taken on a life of it’s own and become popular enough that other add-ons now draw upon it. This tutorial will show you step-by-step, how to install the Specto add-on. Without further delay, let’s get into it.
