Hello readers.

Last 3 days i've been working on a HUGE map.
I've worked a total of 16 hours on my map so far, And it's ~20-30% finished.

A lot of work is still to be done.
But it will be the biggest map in the entire game.

After that, I'll make smaller and quicker maps, Since a single game in this map might take 4-7 hours(not tested yet) in Real-Time.

I'll be looking for people to play the first game with.

Add me on skype if you want to be in the opening of any of my maps, Or if you want to see pre-map screenshots.

My skypename = Jackjwinters

Greetings,

May I recommend that you share a link to your map at this early stage in its development. Will allow for more experienced map-makers to give you some pointers and obviously its better to get such suggestions as early in the process as possible.

Wow, if it's all true you are such a fast drawer! I consider myself fast, but if you've really done 20% of the biggest map, which would be bigger than big USA, and then it's going to have at least 3500 territories, then you should have about 700 right now :) 3 days you say... I'm working for over a week on my big map and I've got about 800.

A friendly message that the territory limit is currently 3200 territories per map, and you won't be able to create a map with more.

This limit was put in place after Big USA was created (which has a tad over 3100 territories), as far as I know especially to prevent creation of such large maps - they are difficult to handle for players, for the Flash app on slower computers, and for the server (there were cases where it was impossible for a game to proceed, because AIs were unable to figure out their orders in reasonable time).

Well i'm making a basic symmetric design.. It's just a big map, Not really very nice yet, Layer 1 is easy. Layer 2 is hard. Layer 3 even harder and possibly layer 4 if i got enough terrotories left, Layer 1 is now 92% done. Then i'll do layer 2 and 3, And depending on the terrotories i might do 4.

To "paraphrase" Gui:
If you have a nice idea for a map and it just so happens to be a 3000+ territory idea, sure, go ahead and make it. Put please, don't put 3000+ territories in a map just because you want the "honour" of having made the biggest map.

Please keep in mind that Fizzer has to manually approve all maps before they become visible to other people. There are some [published requirements](http://wiki.warlight.net/index.php/Map_requirements), which your map will definitely be checked against. I wouldn't be surprised if there's also some "unspoken rules" which will be taken into account though; if you make a 50*60 checkerboard map, it just might be rejected (and your effort wasted) simply because it's incredibly lame. (Contact Fizzer if you need to know how it actually works in detail; I'm just guestimating here.)

@RvW, I've readed it, And so far i've kept myself to the requirements(which is a very good thing =]) I'm now in layer 2, and i'll msg people when i'm done

@Gui, Get over yourself you dirty piece of shit. Look outside and that's what the real world looks like, which will be a whole new area to discover for you. Go fuck yourself, you retarted downie.









@Readers, I'm still looking for people to test my map, I've currently got 2 people, and i still need 3 more.
So if you'd like to test any of my new maps, add me on skype

I don't think that is the case.

If it were, why would all of the New Jersey counties be up there on their own? Or why would there be multiple maps of the same thing (Periodic table, dartboard)? I don't think Fizzer plays editor at all

JKiller... what are you using to make the map? Inkscape? I hope you don't mean layer as in layering the images atop one another...

I agree Gui's comment was in poor taste; your reply however was completely out of line. Shall we try to keep things civil?

|> @myself, I am awesome.

Not to mention modest...!? Seriously, why did you even say that?

I was literally excited to see a 3140+ territory map out of you. That is until I added you on skype, saw your map was nothing but a checkerboard, saw your idiotic comments towards gui, and realized you aren't actually putting effort towards the map, and that your only goal is to have the most territories.

Dropping any support I might have had for this project.

mother to child: "how old are you?"
child: "i'm four-and-a-half."

it is interesting how children below the age of about 10 insist on adding that 'half' year to their age...

Okay i am confused; I uploaded it, and i put in a few numbers, but how exactly do i select what areas can attack/transfer directly onto other area's? Whenever i try it starts in the top left & top right corner, instead of the 2 countries i want to connect.. It's really annoying and it's holding me back.

Please bring me only useful answers, if you do not understand how it works, then please don't respond.

Thanks in advance,

Right, this is the point where he figures out he has to add centre points for each and every single territory (for the comp sci's: linear in the number of territories). Let's wait and see how long it will take him to figure out that after that, he needs to add connections (oohh, gotta love quadratic growth).

For everyone who wouldn't mind too much if this 3200-territories-checker-board (if we can take Nintorii's word for it) is never released, and I sure hope *that includes Matma*, here's a subtle hint: "just shut up and it'll never happen, one 'wrong' link and it just might".
(I'd love to add "PM me if you don't understand that hint" but well, seeing how this forum doesn't have PMs... :( )

Jkiller, if you embarked on a quest to make the biggest map, and you don't even know how to create maps, well, good luck.
