World Nations 2013? Idk: 10/22/2013 21:49:00

This is just a suggestion if anyone decides to do it, if it's even possible :L

A while ago, I made a thread asking if editing other people's maps were possible, and the only real answer I got was only if you have the original creator's permission (who's been un-active for months) or if Fizzer permits you...

On the map "World Nations 2012", could someone add super bonuses that cover entire countries? And the bonuses should only cover the nation's mainland, no distant colonies. Here are the following countries that should be given super bonuses...

1. United Kingdom, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/1382219657.png
2. Nigeria, http://warlight.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/1382220315.jpg
3. Veitnam, http://warlight.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/1382220495.jpg
4. Argentina, http://warlight.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/1382220699.jpg
5. Canada, http://warlight.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/1382226651.jpg
6. Egypt, http://warlight.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/1382226691.jpg
7. Burma, http://warlight.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/1382227181.jpg
8. Germany, http://warlight.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/1382227514.jpg
9. Spain, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/9845129_orig.png
10. India, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/8821969_orig.png
11. France, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/7781434_orig.png
12. Kazakhstan, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/8788814_orig.png
13. Thailand, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/2150881_orig.png
14. Ukraine, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/509873_orig.png
15. Turkey, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/8532459_orig.png
16. Iran, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/8849113_orig.png

19. Japan, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/1075555_orig.png
20. Mexico, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/3682450_orig.png
21. Australia, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/3331260_orig.png
22. Brazil, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/455755_orig.png
23. China, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/873224_orig.png
24. Demo Rep of Congo, http://www.weebly.com/uploads/7/2/3/4/7234236/7285329_orig.png
25. Russia (Not including Kaliningrad)
26. United States (Don't forget Hawaii)

Another suggestion would be adding some of the South Atlantic and Pacific ocean islands so you can't just hop into another continent in 2 turns...

You need the SVG from the map maker in order to edit anything. Otherwise you'd have to make the map from scratch. That is the real issue, is getting that map maker to turn it over to you. If you can do that, I would be happy to alter it quickly, but I would need the SVG from the map maker.

Could Fizzer do anything? Because I mean, the creator of the map doesn't play warlight anymore :L

I thought not having super bonuses was the whole point of that map.

Well superbonus could be good for scenario or roleplay games, bonuses could help balance out the nations rather than making a single territory worth a ton of armies. In games like WW2 scenarios, Germany could have a high super bonus rather than a territory worth hundreds or whatever.

EDIT: Asia and Europe are pretty much the "super bonuses" because of all the 4 and 5's crowded in one area...

Isn't that the one where territory bonus amount was made for population and other real-world data? I think adopting a map and changing it fundamentally is not a good idea.

Adopting a map and improving it graphically or to fix minor things is what is used for map adoption, or so I think.

What about putting every superbonus worth 0, so players can change if they want?

You have to consider that maybe the creator did not want super bonuses. After all it is not like there a vital part of a map.

Yep skunk is bang on.The whole reasoning of the map creation was a map without any many territory bonuses.I even remember the thread and he stated that was what he wanted.You can't change the map that drastically.

Than why did he make this version WITH superbonuses?


http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=15004

but I was thinking of a combination of the two, like a bonus for every territory, but a bonus that covers whole nations.

Personally as a mapcreator myself, i wouldnt want others poking around in my maps only so that they would then suit their onetime playstyle.

If its fixing errors or the like, its one thing, but adding Bonuses just because you would like them in a game...

Those are are bonuses and that version came out before the second.You can't just update that one and turn it to a combination.If you want to do that make a new one.You can not change a map in a way like that.I doubt fizzer will give permission for that.

I doubt Fizzer would allow someone to aswell, but I don't see the big deal in modifying someone's map. If I were a map creator, I wouldn't care what people do with my maps, but I guess I'm just less sensitive.

EDIT: There are super bonuses on the http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=15004 to? Look at the continent bonuses.

lets say you spend awhile making your map, then leave warlight, when you come back your amazing map has been completely f***ed up by some moron who thinks making a map completely different and removing the good map is a good idea, wouldnt you be mad?

Yeah but you'd still have your version, and this is actually a good idea. It can allow for balancing scenarios. If the map creator didn't like the new version, who said he had to play it, he'd still have his version so I don't see what the fuss is about...

It seems everyone(especially mapmakers) is against this idea.So i doubt it would even get off the first stage of your plan.

It was just a suggestion for anyone. And I guess most map makers are just to sensitive about their maps. There were some people that are willing to do this, only if they had the svg, so I wouldn't say everyone...

Are you SURE it was {rp} pedrito who began to create the map.Either, if I were Fzzer, I'd give him the Achievement/Trophy Make a beautiful map, as I saw once on a profile.
Maybe himself has just edited another's map...

That's the style I was talking about. By North America, you were also thinking about Central America, Caribbean and Greenland too, I suppose?

I've found an interesting map that could help me: http://www.google.hr/imgres?imgurl=http://www.geographicguide.com/pictures/maps/north-america-3.gif&imgrefurl=http://www.geographicguide.com/north-america-map.htm&h=2103&w=1676&sz=424&tbnid=55JAEl-oDD31FM:&tbnh=99&tbnw=79&zoom=1&usg=__x7zz7hp-SAov9UpMUtCduiG1SBs=&docid=So60b19rYZDBGM&sa=X&ei=cm1xUpKnFcTv4gSr_IDgCw&ved=0CEQQ9QEwAw

The only thing bothering me is distribution. If you plan making a diplomacy game on a map such as that, then countries that would be distributed would be something like 'West Canada', 'New England', 'South Mexico' etc.
