I was thinking about writing Sid Meier's and asking him to develop a game called "Great Lakes Freighter Tycoon". I track like 4 lake freighters every day and the amount of stuff shipped viaGreat Lake lake freighter is astounding. I can see the game working like the original Railroad Tycoon, where you start a shipping company, can build bigger and faster freighters, rail ferries, tankers and develop port facilities and build canals. I think it would be amazing. Sid's from a Great Lake town, Sarnia, so he might be "game". Anyone know how to get ahold of him?

I live/work right by lake Erie.
One of the first shops I worked in had a jig boring room up on about the 7th floor with windows overlooking the Cuyahoga river.
From there I watched the big lake freighters navigate the narrow river and load unload cargo. Its pretty cool =)
