  New Official SWRebellion Discord Server
Rebellion News Technology has advanced yet again to allow us to better communicate with one another, though we still continue to play this longtime favorite game.

Join here to find opponents, talk strategy, get some technical support, and resolve issues with multiplayer connections.

We'd also love for everyone in our community who is (and isn't) still around to join our Discord server, so we can stay in touch with one another, as it is much easier this way, and much more reliable. We can keep each other up to date and in the loop on things and exchange tips, ideas, even play games together online as well.

It looks slim in this picture, but the number is growing slowly, but surely.
Update by Praetor Pyro: We now have well over 700 active users discussing SWR, looking for games, and even getting things working in the game. -Praetor Pyro, April 25th, 2020

Our newest staff member, PraetorPyro, has been been running it for quite some time. He has also run a YouTube channel dedicated to SWRebellion. There, he gives a lot of tips and tricks to the game on there.

We still ask that you continue to submit tickets to our help desk for issues pertaining to our website, server, e-mail services, etc. at or by e-mailing help @ You may if you wish join the Discord channel and speak with a Staff member and they can help create the ticket for you, and if the right person is online perhaps resolve your issue as well.

  Before The Storm TC
Rebellion News Unknown writes "Before The Storm is a great "lightweight" TC for Rebellion made by Antonius. Playing in the "New Hope" years, it comes with all the related characters adjusted with new graphics, stats, encyclopeida entries. All characters had been updated, some new ships added, new models imported and even new voices are implented.
Now you can make Obi Van fight Vader and the Emperor in the final battle!
This mod is recommended for those, who don't want to have radical changes and love the original SW movie. All these great ingame character images make it really worth for downloading.
This mod will definitly have a sequel later on.

Before The Storm is a great "lightweight" TC for Rebellion.
It focuses on the characters, and especially on their ingame pictures. To be accurate, the shiplist and the character list has been modified to fit with New Hope. 2 new ship classes added: MC40 and MC80B.
The storyline changed. Obi Van takes major part in the game (using the slot, previously occupied by Leia). He becomes a key character besides Luke. That means, you can fight Vader or the Emperor with him, with all the event pictures and recorded discussions.
Antonius promised to make a second TC focusing on ESB. Make sure, he get's some feedback to stay motivated :)

  More models...
Rebellion News Jahled writes "The_Mask has yet again produced the goods and released three new textured models... all of which ROCK!

The Imperial Star Destroyer, Victory Star Destroyer, and Golan III all get (textured) facelifts. The ISD is also slightly larger, in keeping with the other models he's been releasing.

Word of warning however; bear in mind ingame ship models can't share textures. This will cause the game to generate errors as soon as the tactical battle ends... soo only load each new model once; ie: don't load the ISD to both original game ISD I&II slots!

Having said that, we easily have enough models in the database to overcome this problem... personally i'm giving myself a treat when I can start ordering the Kuat Yards to start building my MkIIs....

Check out the downloads section or The_Mask's own website to get them for your games.... :-)"

  PTESB - Ace Expansion Patch
Rebellion News Cain writes "I have just added the 2.5 download to the SWR. It should be up soon in the TC area. Since I made it very small for easy download you require the PTESB TC 2.0/2.4 version to play it .[ It is a new system / press no to ency. restoration by RebEd when loading the 2.5 settings] . The patch should speed up the AI advance. I had assaults from the Rebel AI in day 25-27 and imperial 56-60 but the average is around day 50 for Rebel AI and day 75 Imperial AI.

Btw I should say that all the PTESB TC art is made with WinPaint and ACDSee 5.0.

Many thanks to smellymummy for hosting the 2.5 and CP for his new stories about the Protectorate on the SWR Forums.

3. New 3D Tactical Fighter art.
