This is how it all began... August 31st 1995... An instant classic from Westwood Studios was brought to the gaming world and subsequently revolutionized...
Terms presented here (SAGE 2D, SAGE 3D) are only terms, they do not denote any engines themselves, but serve as collective terms (and only here, not elsewhere):
SAGE 2D: old Westwood games' engine - Westwood 2D (plus Dune game series engines, even if they are less moddable)
SAGE 3D: W3D, SAGE, RNA
But it's not only about engines. All games/mods using one of the universes can be discussed, e.g. Renegade X, Dune Wars (on Civ4 engine) too. :-)
Types of membership:
Every member can be either active or passive. Passive members don't need to be modders. :-) Active members should be modders, but any stuff related either to C&C, BFME or Dune, will be accepted (no modding experience required, but it's greatly appreciated anyway).
Best to post:
+ news/info on latest Dune/C&C/BFME events, etc.
+ tutorials (modding topics)
+ features, articles with own detailed ideas of mods or announcements of projects, for which you want to recruit some people
+ images, videos of related mods
+ custom tools for modding (as downloads)
Linking anything relevant to this group is greatly appreciated, too. (I.e. your news, downloads, articles and tutorials.)
+ If you are beta testing for a mod and its a closed beta, then it is not allowed to upload any releated art or any other media that isnt release to the public by the Dev team that is working on the mod.

Any offensive opinions about EA or its policy will be deleted. Any polite negative opinions, even contaning much criticism, will be left alone. ;-) Any content unrelated to C&C/BFME/Dune will be strictly moderated in sections, such as Images, Features, and Tutorials (but, for example, the main comments section won't be much moderated).
PS "SAGE" name was chosen, because it is most used.
Our last news post was back in early April. Since then we've released 3 updates with a lot of fixes, improvements and additions. Let's explain them.
