Welcome to Fed Com Online

Come fly with us! Developed in cooperation with Amarillo Design Bureau, Inc., Federation Commander Online is a game service for Federation Commander players. Subscribers to FCOL are able to play Federation Commander games 24/7 with other subscribers from around the world.

FCOL is designed to allow you to compete in an environment that emulates Face-to-Face play. However, the computer automates many functions and acts as your friendly assistant for many mundane tasks. There is no limit to the number of games you may play during your subscription period--well, except for your endurance. Our subscribers range in skill level from beginners to skilled aces.

Federation Commander Online will provide all required Federation Commander software and server connectivity for the basic subscription price. FCOL is not an Internet service provider (ISP). To use FCOL you will need to have an account with an ISP or some other means to access the Internet. While Federation Commander Online is a unique tool for playing Federation Commander games over the Internet, it is not a stand-alone product. With limited exceptions, the software does not prevent you from doing things that are against the rules of Federation Commander and you cannot play FCOL without knowing the Federation Commander rules yourself. If you are not familiar with Federation Commander or need to purchase the rules please visit the Federation Commander website

With your Federation Commander Online subscription, you will be able to play and watch Federation Commander games. Also, you will be able to also watch and play SFB games. (Note: You will be limited on the ships you are allowed to fly unless you upgrade your account to include SFB Online (and make that a link as well)
