Time for another severely delayed release

This time I've included two new ships to try to make up for it. The first one is the aforementioned Kalakala, finally polished up and ready to play, available in 1935. The second boat is a small ship called the Fairy (yes, the ferry Fairy
). Like the Beaver it is also refittable to all cargoes, and is introduced in about 1853. Since there is literally no information about this ship available (at least online), I just made up all of the stats. Because no photographs of the ship exist, the graphics also had to be drawn based on a single grainy photograph of a painting of the ship someone drew from their research (and I was lucky to find that!). So, historical accuracy isn't to be expected with this ship
I also fixed the moving graphics on all of the ships since they were not working properly (the wakes stayed visible while loading).
I'm releasing the set in .tar format this time so I can include the license, readme, and changelog with the grf. The readme contains a list of all the ships currently included and when they become available. This .tar can be placed in the newgrf directory just like before. Note that version 0.4.0 is incompatible with previous releases.
