I made a map about 2 days ago, and then i published it and it hasn't shown up yet although two other maps have.

Any Ideas?

Have you checked your email associated with this account to ensure Fizzer didn't send you a message about it?

Provide a link to the map (go to edit the map, there should be a 'Link for Sharing' button) and I'll give it a look to see if I notice anything that would delay it.

Someone obviously ignored the checklist provided before publishing... you clearly didn't test this with anyone in multiplayer.

Issue #1 - You have no Bonuslinks shown. These should be visible squares to inform people what the income is.

Issue #2 - I don't know if this is intended (I rather doubt it) but currently your territories are in fact the borders, not the area they encompass. For instance, Vivian's Island is the outline shown, not the interior space. I can't imagine that was your intent.


Sorry to say it but this map needs a complete re-design. The actual layout appears fine (hard to say) but the execution is completely wrong.

General, have you tested the map at all? Put it back in test mode and try it out. There are obvious issues that need to be fixed.

You should play your map yourself against AI's at least a dozen times to smooth out the wrinkles before making it public. You should test it out with real people a few times as well.

Your map is not ready to be played yet. Keep at it.

Talos,

Do you want me to send you the SVG of a map I have completed (Ireland for instance)? Can give you and idea of how I did it.

Either post an email address you don't mind getting spammed (not by me obviously) or start a game with me to get a chat.

Don't fill them in. Just draw the outline and leave it like that. As I said in the email, play around in Inkscape just making shapes and upload them to Warlight to see how they translate.

Have you tried doing as I advised? Drawing random shapes, labeling them as territories and then uploading to Warlight?

You are using Inkscape, correct?
