Here is a comprehensive guide for all tools you will need to modify Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath. The links will change as new files are added and mirrors are uploaded.

4 November 2018 - added Jonwil's files, resolved GameFront/ModDB and CNCNZ.com links


MAP EDITORS

* Tiberium Wars Worldbuilder 2.0
PPM | CNCNZ.com | C&C Labs | GameFront | ModDBMediafire (C&C File Archive)
Requires patch 1.07 or newer.

* Tiberium Wars Worldbuilder manual
PPM
Official Worldbuilder documentation by EALA. Applies to Kane's Wrath as well. Usually distributed with the Tiberium Wars Worldbuilder.

* Kane's Wrath Worldbuilder 1.1
PPM | CNCNZ.com | C&C Labs | GameFront | ModDB | Mediafire (C&C File Archive) | C&C Guild
Requires patch 1.01 or newer.


* Tiberium Wars Worldbuilder missing art
Jonwil (PPM)
Adds missing cloud/macro textures to Worldbuilder. Will probably also work for the Kane's Wrath Worldbuilder, but untested.


COMPATIBLE FILE EXPLORERS

* FinalBIG 0.4
Wagnerma.de | PPM
BIG/MEG editor by Matthias "Matze" Wagner. Cannot read cdata files. Use in tandem with C&C Asset Extractor (see below).

* OS BIG Editor
PPM
Open-source BIG/MEG editor produced right here on PPM. Compatible even with newer titles by Petroglyph Games.

* XCC Utilities 1.47
XWIS
XCC Mixer, the legendary MIX editor by Olaf van der Spek, is able to open and extract files from BIG files as well, but like FinalBIG, cannot read cdata files. Use in tandem with C&C Asset Extractor (see below).



MOD SDK-S

* Tiberium Wars Mod SDK 5.0
PPM | CNCNZ.com | C&C Labs | GameFront | ModDB | Mediafire (C&C File Archive)
Official set of tools and some documentation released by EALA. Also comes with plugins for 3D Studio Max 7/8 and 9 (do not bother with any other version of 3DS Max, they will not work, period).

C&C Labs recommend the no installer version for Steam users.

* Mod SDK extras
Jonwil (PPM) and Jonwil (PPM - source)
Extra tools for use with the Mod SDK including tools for APT UI editing, extracting files from a .BIG file and displaying the contents of streams.

* Bibber's Tiberium Wars Mod SDK Expansion
Bibber.eu | C&C Labs
This pack contains dummy files that ensure a modification doesn't crash when changing the graphic settings and that there are no errors about missing files from the main game while compiling.

* WrathEd 1.07 Gamma
PPM | Mediafire
The latest "stable" version of the community-made Mod SDK for Kane's Wrath. A powerful tool that lets you dig deep into the game's internal values. Comes with documentation and a sample mod. Also works with Tiberium Wars, Red Alert 3, Uprising and Tiberian Twilight.

More recent version from June 2014 available here on PPM.

* WrathEd Mod Launcher 1.11
Bibber.eu
A tool that allows you to run mods for Kane's Wrath in a similar way that official Game Browsers in Tiberium Wars and Red Alert 3 do.


BITS OF SOURCE CODE

* Original Kane's Wrath XML pack
CNCNZ.com | Jonwil (PPM) | MediaFire (Zocom7)
These XMLs were given to select modders by APOC way back in the day before tools like WrathEd were made. This package includes XSD schema files (only in Jonwil's mirror so far), and is updated for version 1.02.

* Assorted source code for working with SAGE engine streams and assets
Jonwil (PPM)
Various pieces of code useful to anyone wanting to write tools for working with the SAGE engine streamed files and the assets inside them. Written for C++ Builder and Borland Delphi but good as a reference no matter what you are working in

* EALayer3 decoding code
Jonwil (PPM)
Code that allows you to feed EALayer3 audio data through the decoder inside BinaryAssetBuilder.AudioCompiler.dll from the Mod SDK.


OTHER IMPORTANT TOOLS

* C&C Asset Extractor
Bibber.eu
This tool allows you to extract elements from within cdata streams. Works with Tiberium Wars and beyond.

* EALayer3 Asset Generator
Bibber.eu
This tool does the opposite - it generates asset files that can be read by the game. For creating mods and scripted music.

* C&C String Editor
Bibber.eu
Edits CSF and STR files.

I never knew WrathEd 2 had a beta release out of nowhere, only coming from this site.

Did you run the setup as administrator?
