One of the problems with Google Maps is that, as wonderfully useful as it is, you need to be online in order to be able to use it. Google Maps Downloader is a program that enables you to download portions of a map so they can be made available for offline use. If you’re heading off to an unfamiliar city, this is a way to ensure that you will have access to the maps you need without having to rely on a data or wifi connection.

In order to download a map, you will need to specify the area that you are interested in. You can do this by entering the longitude and latitude of the edges of the map. If you’re used to working with degrees, minutes and seconds, you can use the built in tool to convert this data to simply degrees. You can also choose the number of levels of zoom that should be download – in the trial version this is limited to 11, but if you register you can increase this to 19.

The maps you download can be viewed with Map Viewer, but you also have the option of saving maps as BMP files. That’s really all there is to the program – it’s very simple to use, even if the software does look rather basic and slightly dated.

While this is an interesting tool, one can’t help but feel that it is slightly overpriced. $30 seems a little high for what it does, and if you want to extend the capabilities of the program to allow for the downloading of satellite images and other map data, you’re going to have to invest in yet another tool and part with even more cash.

Verdict:

Useful in principle, but fiddly and expensive in practice.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
