Answer
·  What is RebEd?

RebEd is a Rebellion Editor created by Revolution, that allows gamers to edit the game. In short, RebED allows you to load and save Cards, edit the Galactic Map, replace event pictures and sounds, as well as creating and loading TCs.

·  What is a Card?

A card is file that contains new stats, pictures, and information of a particular unit or character. You can create your own Cards [See Skippy's HowTo under the RebEd menu at the top] or you can import new cards using RebEd.

·  I keep reading TC everywhere. What is it?

A TC is a Total Conversion to the game, that you save/load using Rebed's Save/Load Settings option. In a Total Conversion you can expect new images, characters, unit, and more recently even models, and changes in the AI. Feel free to check for TCs in our Downloads Section.

·  What is the latest version of RebEd?

The latest Version is 0.26.

·  Will I be able to play online after I have modded the game?

You will only be able to play online if your rival has the same modifications that you do. Otherwise the game will crash. The "Save Settings" option will prove very useful, for that purpose.

·  I cannot find the load models option in RebEd. Where is it?

You cannot load the new models using RebEd, you need Mask's Model Importer for that. [Find it in the Downloads Section]

·  Why am I getting a version error when I load a TC?

It is a bug, dismiss it.

·  How do I install the new models?

The easiest way is with The Mask's model importer.

Step 1 - Download Model Importer, Resource Hacker, and what ever models you want, to your Rebellion folder.
Step 2 - Extract Model Importer so that it is one folder down from Rebellion as in "..../Star Wars Rebellion/Model Importer/[all the files]".
Step 3- Extract Resource Hacker to the Model Importer folder.
Step 4 - If it is a *.rmd file or there is only one .x file, you can copy the whole folder to the "Import" folder inside of the Model Importer folder (..../Star Wars Rebellion/Model Importer/Import) and skip to step 6. If it is not, then extract the ship model to Import folder.
Step 5 - If there is more than one ship file (*.x files), change them to read close.x, medium.x, and far.x 
Step 6 - Run Model Importer. Select the ship you want to replace.
Step 7 - Go to RebEd. Select capital ships, the ship you replaced (it's picture will not have changed) and select "R" right next to the picture of the old ship. You should see your new ship rotating (Warning - Some models might cause RebEd to crash).
[Optional step]Step 8 - Go to swrebellion.com and download the appropriate ship card (.rsc) and replace the old ship card using RebEd (load card). Or make your own! 
Step 9 - Now run rebellion and see if it works. If you want to find out fast, Use RebEd to set ship cost to 1 and research to 0. You should be able to build the ship right away. Now send it to Coruscant if you're a Rebel or to various Rebel planets if you're the Empire. This will pick a fight and you can see that your ship works in Tactical Mode.
