Hi, Warlight community. I was wondering whether you could make a map of my favorite state, Alaska. I'm new here, so I don't know how much work it takes, but I would appreciate it very much if you could make an Alaska map.It would be interesting.

Thanks,
kirby

There's something to start with.
Any map builders available?

There are SVG maps ready on Wikimedia Commons.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Map_of_Alaska_highlighting_Fairbanks_North_Star_Borough.svg

Unfortunately, this (and its variations) appear to be the only version, and for some reason it hangs my Inkscape. It might be easier to start with something ready than from scratch, no?

And I made a map based on that last SVG: http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=7745 (currently pending public). Hope you like it!

Well, you should know about the problem of overlapping borders... ^^

If you don't know, have a look at "Poland Small" :-D

Idea: Maybe you can make lines on the south-eastern part that go over the sea and indicate the territory borders better, now it's very hard to see which is which.

Metaltubbie, fixed in v1.1 :) http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=7752

Moros, Alaska's administrative divisions borders, especially in the Panhandle, are completely incomprehensible to me. I have no idea why would anyone divide them that way. I'm afraid adding even more lines might actually make the situation worse.

Thank you so much Matma Rex. It means a lot to me. It looks great! Also, it would be nice if it had more territories. Nice job anyways.

You come up with territory names and borders, and we can think beyond.
