I am making a map about the French Revolutionary Wars (1792-1802) heavily inspired by the Thirty Years War map by Zxctycxz. I asked his approval before starting the project and now I am halfway through making all the territories. The map is damn big and detailed, yes, but the whole community is full of big and detailed maps (PLEASE SHARE YOUR FILE SIZE SECRETS TO ME ;-;). I don't know yet why it is so damn heavy, but here is the current situation:
The map has 5,04mb. I am trying to reduce it to less than 2mb. I know I can try to simplify the SVG using the Simplify tool in Inkscape but it is kinda crappy because Inkscape is slow in selecting all the nodes and things so you can simplify and the more objects you simplify the more simplified it will become.
I tried to use optimizers online and they made the file smaller, but for some reason Warlight won't accept those files when I try to upload them. I guess they change something in the SVG code that is not compatible with the Warlight tool.
Here it is a preview of the current state of the map: http://i.imgur.com/USerumn.png
Give me tips on how the hell can I make the SVG smaller without using Inkscape's Simplify tool
