Map too many bites: 11/10/2013 21:23:21

I am making a variation of a world map, it is probably 1/2 of the way done and already has about 200 territories. When I try uploading it, warlight tells me that it has too many bites and to simplify the paths. When I simplify the path, territories that are supposed to be connected are not, the territories get messed up. Is there any ways (besides deleting territories) that I can lower the information on my map without simplifying?

If you're using a background picture to draw the map, then try deleting that and saving it as a different file. There's no way 200 territories would have too many bytes otherwise.

Make sure sure the map isn't too big. You can resize it and Inkspace can do that easily.

Before drawing your whole map you should`ve simplified the territories. Evertime you draw a territory, simplify it and put it how it should be. Simplifying indeed changes de path of the territory a bit and that is why you should symplify it right after drawing and then reshape it into the form you want it to be (there are some slightly different options, in these forums you can find lots of information about it)

+1 on Min34. Some of the paths by default can have 1000's of points... simplify, check, undo if too much.

well, thanks for your solutions, I guess it wouldn't be too much to redo all of it, I was just trying to give the map some detail.

Well, I had to start re-drawing the map, I couldn't get it to go below 2 kbs, even after simplifying territories 3 times/territory. I hope that it doesn't happen again.

Only 200 territory and everyone simplified 3 times should be much less than the limit. The problem is maybe something else. Are there anything else then the vector lines?

Else send the file to Fizzer, he might be able to figure out what is wrong

Well, there is a map, but deleting it didn't do much. Other than that, the only added part is I filled in each territory color so they would be visible. I have already started on the remake though.
