I have made 4 maps and need some testers for them. During the games I will ask questions about the map. If you have one in particular one you want to try let me know. Also taking requests for making new maps.

Civil War

Eastern Hemisphere

Pornland (A Portland Oregon parody)

Zelda Wind Waker

Civil War:

  • Redo borders to make them overlap between territories and adjacent between bonuses.
  • You can add spaces in bonus names! Just make them without spaces in Inkscape, but add the spaces when naming the bonuses in Warlight.
  • Give territories meaningful names. It's not that hard, just find the largest town it contains and name it after that.
  • Give the bonuses a unique colour, perhaps like this: http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=29360
  • Optional: make bonuses of 1 for each city (no need to add links for them all, just say somewhere on the map there's a bonus for each city worth 1)
  • Rework the lines indicating connection between ships and the shore, right now they're unclear.
    [/list]

    Eastern Hemisphere:

    • Redo borders to make them overlap between territories and adjacent between bonuses.
    • You can add spaces in bonus names! Just make them without spaces in Inkscape, but add the spaces when naming the bonuses in Warlight.
    • Every bonus has the same value, making the map unbalanced (4/3 in Central Russia, 4/10 in Australia).
    • Add lines between territories that connect but don't touch.
      [/list]
      Pornland Comic:

      • Redo borders to make them overlap between territories and adjacent between bonuses.
      • You can add spaces in bonus names! Just make them without spaces in Inkscape, but add the spaces when naming the bonuses in Warlight.
      • Split the bonuses up and make them worth a lot more (60% to 90% of the amount of territories is an okay ratio).
        [/list]
        Zelda Wind Maker:

        • Nothing to say here, it is just worthless. And it has been done already: http://warlight.net/Map?ID=4844
          [/list]
          Please invite me for testing games on all maps except the Zelda map after you considered my advice, they look decent over-all for a first try.

I should rename the "Civil war" WL map by just " American civil war "

There were many civil wars in the world

Thank you for the input so far. Tweaking the 3 of them right now. I have names for all the territories of the civil war map, just put in others for speed to check all my links. I will correct that. As for Zelda map, I guess I just missed that there was one. I try to search for each map I make a few ways before I start.

I do not know my way around Inkscape - but have map ideas and examples (mostly geometry stuff right now) I am even making a board game version of a map on plywood (since I could not let the ideas behind it slip away while I struggled with Inkscape, I had to do something!) which is nearly completed.
The problem with my wooden game board is that there is a theme to the design, the variations of which I'd have to do over again from scratch every time for each one! (also in the "real world" I know very few people who play Warlight types of games, so my efforts in this will not be rewarding in the long run - since the whole idea hinges on sharing the results)
On the plus side it is good practice - getting from idea to design to product.

If you are not interested in the geometry style games, which is my current craze, that's cool.

I suppose I could post a request for assistance/collaboration or tutorial aid with my Inkscape issues...
