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)

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.

AFAIK, some modding tools for C&C3/RA3 require .NET framework, so they can be possibly written in C#, too.

SAGE is likely to be written mainly in C++ but some tools and features are written in C# (due to .NET Framework as requirement and using of XSD Schemas). TW veersion probably doesn't have to use it (because C++ supports .NET too), but it is sure, that RA3 has C# components (like some SDK scripts)

Hey, for all those RA3 modders out there, I'm trying to get the original FLA files and a SWF to APT converter off EA that'll let us modify the layout of the RA3 UI and add new UI for new factions. Just a heads-up.

Directly off EALA? What about music?

Music requires their EALayer3 compressor and they aren't given that one up until they trade up for something better; fortunately the software is like 7 years old so they may update soon. As for the APT converter, I discovered that they actually have nobody on staff right now that can enable the realease; they have no programmers who would know what it looked like, nevermind be able to check it to make sure they weren't releasing important EA house tech!

However, Ferriswheel and I are working on a roundabout solution and we'll keep you all posted.
