I've had a couple of problems with making a Warlight map, and these seem like things that should probably be added to the wiki, because I think they'd be fairly common. First off, I need to punch a hole in one of my territories to make a lake that should show up black in the finished product, but I can't figure out how to do this properly.

Second, my Inkscape background stays white even after I set the background to black. Will it still show up as black in the finished result?

Third, I have a *huge* amount of map ideas. I'll probably get bored after making just one or two, but just in case, would there be some kind of memory storage problem if I end up making a whole lot of them in a short amount of time? I can't imagine there would be, but I have only the vaguest ideas of how Warlight works, so I thought I should check.

1. Draw the big territory and the smaller one (or a lake in your case), the duplicate the lake, select one of the lakes and the big territ, and use Path -> Difference.

2. Yes, the Warlight background will always be black (unless, for example, you draw a big white rectangle under the torritories).

3. I don't think so. There is, however, a limit as to how big a map file can be (but you won't hit it unless you do something *really* wrong ;) ).

I can't seem to select both at once. Clicking one, then CTRL+clicking the other isn't working.

Use the SHIFT instead the CTRL.

Excellent. Everything's working like it should, now. Thanks for your help, this map should be done within twenty four hours.
