Question:
how to add more bones on top of the quickrig, since its not a typical bone system. I need hands, tails, eye bones ect.
Answer:
In the Step-By-Step process in Step 4 create Skeleton Only. Then you can add your own skeleton parts, like hands. After Skinning (maybe you need to increase the resolution for the Geodesic Voxel Binding) you need to add the HIK Rig in the HumanIK Window.

人们常常用咄咄逼人来掩饰弱点,真正持久的力量存在于忍受中,只有软骨头才急躁粗暴,他们因此丧失了人的尊严。我等待,我观看。恩惠也许来,也许不来。也许这种既平静又不平静的等待就是恩惠的使者,抑或恩惠本身。──弗兰茨·卡夫卡(FranzKafka)
