As of April 3, Version 4 of Fairy Tale is available. I tried making a Patch to update Version 3 to 4 in an easier way, but the patch failed. You will have to download the Full Version again. Regardless whether you have a previous version or not.
There is a Patch of Corrections to Version 4 as well. For the most up-to-date Version of Fairy Tale, you should install V4 as well as the Corrections Patch. The Corrections patch even adds a new Civilization to the game, getting up the number of recently added to THREE. That final one is not quite yet done though, but fully playable. All units are in place, a leader and so on. Only small things are missing, like the buttons, national anthem, flag...
