Here are the features new to version 4!

-You can now capture your enemies buildings. This makes the game more realistic since an attacking country would not destroy everything, instead they would take what they could as their own. Non aggressive buildings (Livestock Pen, Mill, Market, Church, Monastery, Sacred Field, Farm, Plantation, Fire pits, Houses, Shrines, Saloons, Bank, Factories, and Wonders) can be stolen from your enemy. They convert to your team if you have more units by them than the opposing player in the same way that sheep do. Buildings such as Outposts, and Castles will prevent the enemy from converting your buildings. This makes them much more vital to defending your colony. If a building has special abilities, like wonders, you will be able to use those abilities after you have taken that building.
-There is a new technology called Piracy research-able at the Town Center for Europeans and Asians. It shows where all treasures are and allows Pirate Ships to be made at the dock.
-There is a new tech called Westernize. This tech gives the Asian access to the Entrepreneur, along with being able to build forts, factories and banks (available at the imperial age).
-AI researches Piracy tech.
-AI builds Pirate Ships.
-AI researches the Westernize tech.
-Walls regenerate very slowly. The repair button is still useful since it repairs your walls much much faster then the regeneration. This allows the AI to have their walls repaired since this is automatic.
-New Random Maps are Atlas Mountains, Madagascar, Sahara Desert and Saskatchewan (This maps is for my friends to the west.)
-You can build Pirate ships. They can train Smugglers, Pirates, Buccaneer Captains, Fugitives and Parrots.
-Europeans can make Gatling Guns at the Fortress Age.
-The Americans(revolt nation) can create General Washington.
-Europeans can make Drummers and Flag Bearers.
-Cows, Sheep, Llamas and Water Buffaloes can be trained from farms, mills and livestock pens.

4 because the picture of the drummer isn't nice, to be honest, it's kinda ugly :p.
And I can see him drum, but i can't hear it.

EDIT: I just saw under BUG FIXES, Drummer has new icon. So, forget about that comment ;)

Can't wait untill 5.0!!!!



Ps: My oppinion is that the conversion of buildings to fast is. I would love it that I have to control the building for a period of time in order to overtake it.
Can I change it somewhere?
