USA - Missing Lat and Long Data

(This was probably a stupid and pointless waste of time, but I did it anyway. )

Does anyone else use the "View players in Google Earth" function? I like to do it every few seasons, just to see all the players currently in the game from my local area, or to see a graphical representation of where all the players on my team actually come from. But if you've used it, you might've noticed a big group of names clustered together in the ocean off the west coast of Africa. This location is latitude 0, longitude 0, and it happens because there's a bunch of cities and towns in the game missing their actual lat. and long. So I've gone through and filled them all in.

I've also fixed a couple that were wrong (missing a "-" sign, resulting in coordinates halfway around the world), updated/corrected a few names, deleted a couple of towns that didn't seem to exist at all (no wikipedia entry, no hits on Google Maps), and updated a few coordinates in my local area... including those of my hometown, which were just off enough to cause players to appear across the river in the town next door.

And besides the Google Earth feature, I believe there's one other benefit to having these missing coordinates: I think the game may use them when matching up players from those towns with their nearest high schools. So having them actually in the correct locations, rather than off the coast of Africa, might result in more accurate high schools and colleges for these players.

Download and re-name to "world_default.xml" (make sure to backup your original first): http://www.mediafire.com/file/nrqnu7...and%20long.xml (This is an otherwise-unmodified version of the default file; if any of the devs see this and want to incorporate these changes into the actual game, please be my guest. )

--edit-- Okay, got the correct file uploaded now.
