Edit your post, dont double post.
All you do is open the MPQ using WinMPQ and you can extract the certain files you need.

And what happened? Did a green-black cube appear where you wanted to place the unit? The World Editor can't recognize custom textures/models first, after importing such a file you have to save the map and restart the editor, then open the map again. If the file still can't be loaded after this then it's because the file doesn't have the correct path.

Ok i'll try that.  :( Same Error could not load. Cant be pathed wrong cause i took the pathing directly off the text tutorial and yeah its a Green Black Cube. Oh BTW path i'm useing is textures/Abomination.blp I've gone through the tutorials again and again and again looking for errors on my part or something that explains why its messed up and i've got nothing :(

Before placing them you can see the doodad on the left side of the editor. Just under it there is the rotate option.
