    Thanks for all the latest additions, I've added them to the master list with the exception of the normal thief script as this appears to require a copy of 3ds Max to use, I'd like to make sure everyone can get some use out of the listed resources without having to pay anything at all.

    Would it be better to have the whole building as one mesh or to make like wall meshes, doorway meshes, floor meshes etc and piece it together in the editor that way?

    Can you guys recommend any particular software (or set of softwares) or plugins for software(s) modelling buildings? I don't mean like just closed off building models, I'd like to actually mesh out entire one-piece interior/exterior meshes. (Minus moving objects like doors, those would be separate, but the walls, floors, stairs, ceilings, rooms would all be one piece.) I did this with Sketchup when I used Cryengine, but applying materials to Sketchup models converted to FBX and imported to Maya always gives horrid results.

    I knew I was forgetting a super awesome program that no one should go without...

    OBS (Open Broadcaster Studio) - Live-stream, screen capture to flv/mp4, multiple sources & overlaying video on video, records off the GPU so it has a very small footprint, Open Source.

    There is fraps and some others too... but this program makes them fairly irrelevant (I use fraps only for the FPS counter now) . Must have if you want to record tutorials, record some footage from UE4, or live stream!

    Also, for coders:

    Visual Studio 2013 Community - Basically the Pro edition with different terms (max 5 users per company, make less than $1million/year, no Enterprise dev) - Which means it's perfect for small UE4 teams!
    NotePad++ - Syntax highlighting, supports most languages, lightweight

    For Audio:

    LMMS - Audio production, sound generator, beats/baseline, synthesizer, & MIDI controller

    And Misc:

    GifCam - Quick and easy program for recording Gif images.

    Model downloads:

    Yobi3D Search Engine - A search engine for finding 3d models

    I'll keep looking for more

    I made a umg server browser example, called IronFox. Similar to my other umg project, except this one is with the blueprint online session nodes.

    Normal thief. Helps to "steal" normal from another mesh to a target mesh. :P
    (Thanks to time spirit, mentioned it in another post)

    had a thought, have you considered adding free desktop video recording software to the list?, recording gameplay/tutorials...ect is an integral part of developing games.

    just an idea
