Trouble creating map: 4/6/2011 13:19:25

Hey guys, i ask sorry for my bad english.
These are my problems. I took an image like it was said in the tutorial and i started to draw. That what i can't understand is if i have to draw evrey territory without pull
off the finger of the mouse or can i make multiple lines? If i do in that way, i won't have defined territories but a lot of lines.
Other question is that if i have to call IDs only for a territory at once or maybe can i call evrey line with a different ID? I made in this way: opened with wordpad then find and replace

id="path
and replace to
id="Territory_


Now evrey single line has a different ID.

3rd question: how can i make bonuses and bonus links? i read the tutorial but i didn't understand a lot. Thank you for your help!

I'm assuming you're using Inkscape here: Inkscape has many different tools that work in different ways for drawing. Without seeing exactly what you're doing it's hard to answer your question. However, I recommend looking for some Inkscape tutorials that may be able to answer your question better.

Each territory you want to be player-controllable should have an ID of Territory_##. If you do a find/replace for everything, you may end up setting an ID on things that shouldn't be player-controllable, like connection lines or other decoration.

It would be helpful if you can point out which part you don't understand exactly, or where you're getting stuck. Fundamentally you're just creating shapes and giving them BonusLink_ IDs.

To expand: yes, what you did works perfectly, but if you have any drawn shapes that are not territories, you have to go back to them in Inkscape (or whatever) and change their id's to something else.
