A couple months back, Limalia gave me the SVG to his Westeros map in order for me to make a diplomacy version (one bonus for every territory). However, it was already a huuuuuge map as it was (memory-wise), and it's breached the memory capacity. I've deleted things like text (as you can see), and simplified what I can without totally destroying the map, but it's no use. At this point, I might have enough free space to finish the rest of the North, but that's probably it. I could delete the mountains, but not only would that take away from the authenticity of the map, I don't think that would help; I can't imagine they'd take up that much more space than the island connection lines anyway.
If anyone has any ideas on how to save space besides deleting/simplifying things (both of which I've already done as much as I'm willing), please let me know so I can finish this damn work of art that Limalia entrusted to me.

Maybe you should let someone who can actually be helpful respond.

i'm not a map expert but this doesn't have that many images so it's probably your line paths that have too much detail. try finding the ones that have particularly high resolution and simplify them? (ctrl+L on inkscape).

also if your background is an image, convert it to paths so it's pure svg and not svg with heavy bitmap background?

maybe ninjanic, lionheart and other regular (and active) map makers can give you better tips.

Ranek gave me good advice a couple of days ago - be sure you save the file in plain SVG, not Inkscape SVG (which is the default option). It saves some memory space. Maintain a backup version in Inkscape SVG though because it is more stable. (e.g. I had a problem with layers when I saved my file in plain SVG).

you are already at the memory limit? that's weird. did you accidentally duplicate the map for example? or is there anything space consuming hidden underneath the territories? you already deleted the text and the map was released with text. that's suspicious.

Actually, it might be duplicated. I'm pretty sure it's not, but it would make sense why it's too big.

yeah save as plain SVG, remove any tracing images (even if they are completely transparent or on a hidden layer), simplify shapes/lines (ctrl-L) and check for duplicate stuff.

Your best bet is to check for duplicate items such as in the mountains or even territories.

Failing that make sure there are no hidden images, ie: a template of something that was not deleted and instead has it's transparency removed.

Last case scenario I would suggest simplifying some of the connection lines, curves use up more memory the more detailed they are.
