OpenTTD
An extended remake of Transport Tycoon Deluxe

OpenTTD is an open source remake of the classic business simulation game Transport Tycoon Deluxe, with a host of improvements and extensions.

The program launches with an RTS-like map, dotted with cities (click Options and choose a higher resolution if the 640x480 default doesn't work for you). Your task is to earn money by transporting passengers and cargo across your very own transport network, over land, rail, sea and air.

There's plenty to learn, but the game has a lot of documentation and tutorials to point you in the right direction. OpenTTD's many improvements mean it's much easier to use than the original (drag and drop support, pathfinding for vehicles etc), and although games can have up to 256 players, that's not compulsory. You can learn by playing on your own for a while, or against a computer opponent.

Please note, OpenTTD is designed to use the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe data files. If you don't have the game, download the installer - not the portable version - and during setup it will offer to download free versions of the files.

What's new in 1.8.0 (see full changelog for more)?

- Feature: [GFX] Climate-specific Action5 extra airport sprites [FS#6664] 
- Feature: Draw vertical separators at tile distance in the train depot GUI 
- Feature: [Build] MSVC 2017 project file generator. Most noticeable, std:c++latest is enabled
- Feature: [Build] Project file generator for kdevelop 4/5 [FS#6577]
- Feature: Add option to close windows with right click [FS#4950] 
- Feature: Vehicle Group Info: Add profits and occupancy display to group vehicle list 
- Feature: Display aircraft type in vehicle preview/purchase/detail windows 

Verdict:

A fun game with a lot of depth. It's still being actively developed, too, with new features arriving and bugs being fixed all the time.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.81

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.81

- You can now use Siri to send messages to WhatsApp groups.
- Group voice and video calls are now available. When you're in a call, tap the “Add Participant” icon. Group calls support up to 4 total participants.
