I need help.

I am trying to make a map for Warzone for the first time, i have practized for a while. However, when i upload the map the armies keep getting to large for the territories. My Canavas are at maximum size (3330x2400), i have pixel units at everything and i check if my territories are big enough using a 20x20(px) circle as a guy sowed on me you tube. I am drawing over a picture, trying to make a detailed map. The territories are perfect with width and height
(example 63x122pixels) when drawing it using Incscape. Anyway, when i upload it to warlight, the armies are to large to fit my territories. I have pushed the map to the limit, and don't want to delete the entire map and remake it.

Are there anything i have missed? What am i doing wrong? What can i do to fix it? pleace help me.

Here is a link to the map, its just an example: https://www.warzone.com/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=70609

First, can you please shere the preview link to your map? It's easeir to just see what you see :)

In the design map screen / map editior click link for sheering in the left menu. You will have a link like this there.


"My Canavas are at maximum size (3330x2400) Odds are you can use way smaller. Smaller is more in the case of map-making

I have pushed the map to the limit

Not sure what you mean by this, so this is why the preview map link is helpful.

When I clicked the map for your map, there's a lot of black space in the map, so it seems like you need to adjust the canvas to only show Norway.

Are you double sure you're using pixel measurements and not millimeters? I've done that a few times, even after I was 100% sure it was already set to pixel measurements.

Thanks for the good advice!

TBest: here is the link again: https://www.warzone.com/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=70609

Abraxis: so it is not usual to have that much black space for the maps? Because i have extended the map as much as i could in incscape, and as you probably can see, i tried to split Norway in two parts, to increase the map size even more.

Clint Eastwood: I am pretty sure that it is pixel, but I might be wrong. And could the wrong measurements be the case that there is so much blackness in the map? Do you suggest that i just do everything all over again, or is it possible to use the same drawing, on maybe a new document?

and i tried to do upload the maps with only the two territories, along with decreasing the canvas. here is the result:

Keep up with your very helpful advises, that is appreciated a lot! :)

Many people have had this problem

Threads about this:

I think this may be a problem with your viewbox. Under document properties there may be a viewbox setting under "scale". If so, make viewbox x and viewbox y 0.

If not, this is a more complicated issue to fix.
Try going to your xml files (control+shift+x) and click on the top thing which should be your svg id.
Then in the box on the right called "name", scoll down to viewbox. Change the first 2 numbers to 0 and 0, and change the 3rd / 4th numbers to your width / height.

This should fix the problem you are experiencing.

Edit: This is what your viewbox should look like: https://postimg.org/image/6n3lfg2uf/
