Un:
Draw the entire map outline. Ignore bonuses for now.

Dos:
Draw a line where you want your first bonus border to be. Set the line width to 0,8 pixel.


Tres:
Do the following. You can get quite quick at it after a while:
  • Select the path
  • Press CTRL+ALT+C
  • Select the path and the map outline you drew earlier
  • Press CTRL+-
  • Press CTRL+SHIFT+K


There you go! A clean bonus border! Now do it until all bonuses are separate paths.

Cuatro:
Draw a line where you want your first territory border to be. The width of the line doesn't matter now.


Cinco:
Select both the path and the bonus, and press CTRL+/.

There you go! A clean territory border! Now do it until all territories are separate paths.

Seis:
I'm not going to bother explaining the rest of the map-making progress, this tutorial is just for the svg file.

Siete:
Yay! A great map!

Ocho:
Tell me what you think of this method. It may not be faster than the inset-method, but I think it produces cleaner borders.

Don't you mean bonus border?

Anyway, I'm using this method and it's fantastic!

Thanks CROivan, I fixed it.

Chris, on my computer (and apparently CROivan's as well) everything is fine, so it's probably your computer or browser. But although the images are for clarification, you don't really need them if you have any experience with mapmaking (which you probably do).

I can see it fine right now (on my home PC), must be something at work blocking them.
