Few question about what happenes after publishing.

1) As I understand map owner still have right to change minor features: territory name, bonus size and scale, connections. Everything that is offered by Warlight Game Designer as comments below older maps prove these to be true. But can I still re-load new .svg with added or deleted territories, changed boundaries?

2) Does a map owner-maker has a right to delete it, or it will be permanently available and can only be changed as described above?

3) Are there any other functions after map is published I should know about, missing?

Thank you in advance!

To answer question 2, I think once a map is published it stays there forever. I think I read it in either the "Design Maps" tab or in the Wiki Page.

I am also very curious about the first question, as I might want to add more territories to a published map in the future, but I don't know if that's possible.

I believe I read the map section around half a year ago:

Every map version that gets made public must remain around on WarLight's servers forever, since games that were created on that map also stay around forever. Therefore, it's best if every effort is put into maps to try to make them perfect before they get upgraded to public.

I understand why it is so, that I can´t delete a map.

About the versioning and regarding the first question. So basicaly I launch map ver. 1.0.. people start games with it. Then I eventually upgrade it to 1.1 and all new games will use the 1.1 version, when all old 1.0 ver. games are over I can delete it, right? And what about SVG - can I edit-modify my SVG or only In-Warlight possible functions?

When you update your map by making a new version (1.x), you can upload a new SVG to do so. I believe you're right about deleting the old version; once all games on that version are finished, you can delete it.
