Hey guys,
I know many of y'all play Federation and Empire (or want to learn to play - but don't have a local opponent).
Well, SFU_Fear )the F&E Answer Guy) is a GIS specialist and is taking care of this. He is compiling a graphical world map with the locations of all the F&E players marked. He's currently up to 50 locations worldwide.

You can follow the thread, or just look at the map itself.

If you'd like to add your location, Mike needs it in this format:
Name,Street Address,City,State,Zip Code

and don't forget the commas.

you can email to Mike at macurtis (at) comcast (dot) net. Be sure to put [F&E Player] in the subject line of the email.

Put this: [F&E Player] with the brackets around it in the subject, please. It is how my email is catching and sorting them to the right folder so I don't lose them in the 100's of emails I get every day. Also, don't put any spaces after the commas, run it all together. I am createing a comma deliniated text file of the data.

I know I've always wanted to learn but never had anyone around who knew how to play, and finding the time, $$, and effort to invest was hard.

Compared to where you guys live to me, that man is a next door neighbor. I did look at the map but realized that Tampa is about a 2hour drive there, and 2hours back. So that's minus 4 hours per gaming session Sad I'm not sure if that would be practical.

Ok guys! I got just about all the F&E expansions except for ISC, ( I will look to add that after the holidays ;^) I also have downloaded the Vassal client program, but still need someone to help walk me through it.

Just bumping this to see if we can get a few adds to it.
It's been a few years now since we posted it.

Would Mike consider adding email addresses to the display?

Having a quicker means of contact than just a snail mail address might encourage other players to add their info.

For the record, I'm on Cape Cod in Massachusetts and eager to play more F&E.

The geocode service that did the mapping of the points in the past is no longer free and as such, I can't add any more at this time. This may change in the future. Adding more data would require a re-geocode of the information.

Sorry, guys. Out of my hands.
