Tables are text files with the extension .tbl, and are the major data files in Freespace and Freespace 2. Compared with many other games, they are highly intuitive and easy to edit, requiring no special tools other than notepad. For more detail on specific tables, see the links below.

Table entries must be ordered as a general rule.
Keep the order shown in the following help sections for each table in both normal tables (tbl files) and Modular Tables (tbm files). If you don't do it, you can get parser errors on FS2 or FRED2 loading when they are reading them.
