Before writing this review, I did a little bit of research on the character Xev Bellringer of the Sci-Fi show LEXX. I checked out numerous pictures of the actress in and out of character and I have determined that this, indeed, is an amazing model. (Yes, her lips really ARE that big!) There are too few female models made for JKII, so every one that is made just means that us JKII chicks have more options! YAY!
Flamegrape shared with us his BETA version of Xev and even then we were impressed. This, now his final version, he has fixed a few things here and there and made more skins for her and a few versions of her with different hairstyles. Of course there's bot support and team colors. And there are many, many different taunts to choose from. :) I'd love to see what skins will be made for this model. Great job Flamegrape - I anticipate your next work of art. :D
Bot Support: Yes. Team Colors: Yes. New Sounds: Yes.
**************************************************************************** XEV BELLRINGER FROM LEXX - JEDI KNIGHT II MODEL **************************************************************************** Title: Xev (season 2, 3, and 4 of LEXX) Author: M.gunnerQuist (a.k.a. "Flamegrape") E-Mail: [email protected] Website: http://www.flamegrape.com File Name: jk2mdl_fg_xev.zip File Size: 2.37MB Date Released: 3 December 2002 _____________________________________________________________ MODEL DESCRIPTION & SPECS: Xev is one of the main characters of the television space-fantasy show, LEXX. Xev Bellringer is from the planet B3K of the League of 20,000 planets located in the Light Zone. When she was transformed into a loveslave, a brain-eating clusterlizard became mixed with her DNA. She is beautiful as well as fierce! More info: http://www.flamegrape.com/xev/index.htm The accounting of the polygons and vertices is somewhat complex for this model. First of all, there are four levels of detal (LODs). Also, there are three general versions of the Xev model: one representing her costume as seen during season two, one for season three, and one for the fourth season. Since all three versions mostly use the same parts, in each case some parts are hidden while others are visible. This also permits greater variations for skins. (See "Secret Skins," below.)

Tim "Spacemonkey" Appleby for his tutorial. Thanks to the folks at Polycount, FileFreak Forums, and LucasForums. Special thanks to Michael Frost for helping me fix "broken" meshes. Absolutely no thanks whatsoever to the moderators of LucasForums for deactivating the search function and crippling my efforts to research technical help! They can eat hot death on toast! _____________________________________________________________ INSTALLATION: Extract the fg_xev.pk3 file into the jk2/gamedata/base/ directory. !!! IMPORTANT NOTE !!! If you want Xev to be sized properly in the game, it is highly recommended that you download JediPlus, a modifications that permits the re-sizing of character models. (The need for re-scaling models became apparent when a Yoda model was produced.) As of this writing, none of the mods support this Xev model. However, implementing a new scale size for Xev is easy. Look for a file named "tckmodel.cfg" in the \GameData\jediplus folder and add the following lines: "xev2" 0.88 1.0 "xev3" 0.88 1.0 "xev4" 0.88 1.0 (It is assumed that Kyle is 6' tall and that Xev is 5'4".) _____________________________________________________________ USAGE: There are three main models included with this pack. There is Xev2, which is a model of Xev from the second season of Lexx. There is Xev3, which is a model of Xev from the third season of Lexx. Then there is Xev4, which is a model of Xev from the fourth season of Lexx. Each of these three main models includes red and blue team variations. There is also a variation of Xev2, the season 2 model, called "Divine Assassin Xev." Although Xev never became a divine assassin, it was thought that this skin variation would look cool. _____________________________________________________________ !!! SECRET SKINS !!! All of the variations of Xev mentioned above are selectable from the menus within the game. However, there are a few other "secret skins" that are only available by entering special commands in the console. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OF THESE COMMANDS ARE VERY SIMILAR! So don't get them mixed up! Also, be sure to press the TAB key after the model change is made. Xev, season 2/3: This version of Xev was never seen on the television show itself. However, publicity photos of that character were made prior to the beginning of the filming of the third season. In these photos, Xev can be seen wearing here red hair seen in season two with the costume that was used in season three. To use this model, type the following command in the console: model xev3/default_x23 Xev, season 3/2: This version of Xev was seen for only a few minutes on the television show. In this version, she has her long hair that is seen throughout season three, but she is still wearing the costume as it was seen during season two. (When she is revived from cryosleep on the planet Fire, she has newly-grown hair and later strips off parts of her costume because of the intense heat on that planet.) To use this model, type the following command in the console: model xev3/default_x32 Xev, season 4/2: This version of Xev was never seen on the show, but looks kind of cool. It's just Xev with her season four hairstyle and her season two costume. To use this model, type the following command in the console: model xev4/default_x42 Hilda Humphrey: This is just Xev as seen in season four but using the "divine assassin" colors on her costume. This variation somewhat resembles Xenia Seeberg (the actress who performed Xev) in her role as Hilda Humphrey in the short film, "Hellchild." To use this model, type the following command in the console: model xev4/default_hilda _____________________________________________________________ DISCLAIMER: THIS MODIFICATION MAY NOT BE DISTRIBUTED WITHOUT THIS TEXT FILE.
