Terminology:
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).

Contribution:
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.)

Rules:
+

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.

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.

There's also Gmax with the RenX expansion pack which you can use if you are modifying C&C Generals: Zero Hour.
