Instead of charging extra for long-distance recruiting per action (i.e. you have to fly to-and-back from Slovenia every time you visit a slovenian recruit) how about this:
-You can visit/scout players in only one state per cycle
-All home visits and scouting trips are a flat fee
-you have to pay a "travel fee" to go to a new state at the beginning of each cycle, charge more for farther jumps
-You can only host campus visits while you're in your own state
You could also impose limits for each cycle, or not (maybe you have a limited number of moves of any kind per cycle but if you don't use them, you can fit travelling to a 2nd state in there if you'd like, but that takes up a move)
There are a number of positives and negatives that would go with this strategy...i'm pretty confident it would be a net-positive and, most importantly, a LOT more fun.
