 +===== Using SinfarX Individual Features ​ =====
 +
 +Use a body model to design your NPC's head, body, and a tailor model to design your  NPC's armor, helm and cloak.
 +
 +Open web client, have the model "speak the complete appearance code" to make it whisper the xdata for each component you wish to customize on your NPC, and paste the XDATA string to the following variables:
 +
 +  * HEAD_APPEARANCE ​
 +  * BODY_APPEARANCE ​
 +  * ARMOR_APPEARANCE ​
 +  * HELM_APPEARANCE ​
 +  * CLOAK_APPEARANCE
 +
 +Note: "Speak the entire body appearance code" uses the variable COMPLETE_APPEARANCE2,​ but as of the writing of this tutorial it is currently under maintenance,​ as the data string currently exceeds Neverwinter'​s string variable length limit.
