I have been making a big map of Sweden last days. This is my first map and it has been going good. Im pretty done with all the territories but are having a bit problems:

(Heres a link: http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=9645 )
1. I want to make territories (cities) in another. Ive done another way with the other cities, making the city and then drawing the territory around. Help? (I know you make holes but it didnt work for me right then)

2. My bonus boxes dont appear on warlight, only one of them in the north, as you can see.

In a few days (if I can fix the problems) I need people for testing games.

I know the lines are not quite nicelooking, but Ive done it pretty fast, and its my first. :)
And connections I will make later, Bonuses is what Im trying to fix right now.

1. I can't see any cities on that map, could you point out where it is?
2. Did you add the proper ID's?

Moros:
1: There are lots of them. (Just used circles)
In the top municipality, Kiruna as it should be named, Im having trouble. It really dont work making holes.

2: Yes Ive checked the one that are there. Its ID: BonusLink_VasterbottensLan and it says that too in WL creator.
Just got thinking about it; is it that I have the wrong sort _ lines?

Bonus links will become visible when you create their corresponding bonuses.

For the territory holes: duplicate the city. then select the duplicate and the territory the city is located in, then use the 7th tool from the top in the Paths tab (I don't know how it's called in English :() Now you have it cut out and a perfect border :)

Moros probably means the Difference tool - or Ctrl + - (that's a minus sign) for the shortcut.

@Moros:Thank you, it worked perfectly and now that problem is fixed.

@Matma Rex: Its just saying Bonus link is missing. Link should be named BonusLink_SkanesLan
What should I change?

Well, you should create an object (probably a rectangle) with id of BonusLink_SkanesLan.

"its just saying" - which "it" are you talking about? Inkscape? Warlight editor?

I honestly have no idea what might be wrong. Have you updated the SVG?

Uhm....
The unnamed thing means he hasn't named them yet, and probably will when he's done with the rest...............

Warlight editor.
The Id for the box is:BonusLink_SkanesLan. The Bonus is called Skanes Lan. Then "it" (:P) says:Missing bonus link. Link should be named BonusLink_SkanesLan.

@Jkiller 2911

I have spared the names to the last cause if I had to make it all over again I was spared the job of putting names on all the territories again. ;)

Well, I have no idea. You should probably ask Fizzer directly at fizzer@warlight.net, I guess.

So, after a month or so, I'll catch this thread back again. I have worked on the map, and then solved bonuslinks yesterday. Now when I've put on some distrb. modes, it's ready for testing. Someone in for more testing? Thought about something like 3 testing games because the only things (except small bugs) I think could be really bad, is my possible unfair distribution modes, and therefore I need to test them. If theyre bad, I'll try to make them better or just dump the idea. As I said: Testers? Oh, and a link for the map: http://WarLight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=11628

####Some thoughts

You have a couple territories with duplicates names (2x Öresund, 3x Kattegatt, 2x Skaagerak). Maybe you could go for "Öresund North" and "Öresund South" or "Öresund 1" "Öresund 2"; people playing on the map for the first time might get them mixed up when discussing strategy in chat.
Btw, I love how you used different ships for the ferry routes to Norway, Denmark, Finland and Gotland on the one hand and the freight route to Lulea on the other!

Wouldn't it make sense to draw (in dark grey) the outlines of the Baltic States as well? The lower right corner looks so... empty. Or would it hurt your Nordic / Scandinavian / Kalmarian / Viking pride to include them? ;)

####Just curious

How much inspiration did you get from Moros' maps? The connected airports really remind me of the Benelux map he's working on.

####Practical matter

Please invite me for a test, it's been far too long since I've been in Sweden. :)

RvW: I've thought that too, but I think it would sound stupid with north, south and center Kattegatt. But I maybe change it, after a bit of test games, we can check if it was irritating for the players. The different boates are maid from what kind of boats usually sails there, and at the west coast and between stockholm and Helsinki there are ferries. Those who go north are cargo-boats. :)

None. I actually had no computer availible when I thought this map out, and the airports too. It was my plan then to include known places in Sweden, but they didn't make room. I checked Moros map later, after I finished almost all drawing and saw he had airports too (and harbours).

Thanks for good response and you should really come over to Sweden! :)

Forgot to answer your second question; *Wouldn't it make sense to draw (in dark grey) the outlines of the Baltic States as well? The lower right corner looks so... empty. Or would it hurt your Nordic / Scandinavian / Kalmarian / Viking pride to include them? ;)*

Yes, I would say the only reason I haven't even thought about including them, must be my deeply hidden viking pride ;) But I may draw it (or something else instead so its not so empty)

If you prefer an alternative, maybe this is a nice inspiration: http://warlight.net/Map.aspx?ID=2121
If you'd like to do this, keep in mind WL doesn't understand embedded images in SVG, so images have to be converted first (zoom in *really* far to see what I mean). I think I once saw some info on the Wiki how to do that, but right now I can't find it; shout if you'd like to do this and I'll help you search.

|> Thanks for good response and you should really come over to Sweden! :)

I've visited Sweden twice (2007 and 2008 if memory serves), I have great memories of both times. At the moment I can't really travel, but I'll definitely go back again!

Why should it? The baltic or parts and/or tribes of it, have already been part of the Kingdom of Denmark and the Kingdom or Sweden at various times in medieval history.

RvW: Seems like a good alternative, or some fun text, now when you say it, as on this map: http://warlight.net/Map.aspx?ID=3777
I didn't get what you meant with converting and zoom in, there wasn't anything special as far as I see.

myhandisonfire: I know, but in some way that I can't really explain, its not matching "my sight of Scandinavia".I know it sounds a bit silly, but so it is.

Going back to "reality", I need more people testing. It's mostly the distrb. modes I want to test, and I think the two most important to test is Invasion (3v3) and watch your back (3v3/2v2).

Example: ![](http://i39.tinypic.com/2a5fyao.png) (that's the head of the left eagle). It's not a normal picture, it has been converted to areas of a solid colour, but in three minutes I couldn't find how to do the convert; tell me if you're actually interested and I'll search a little more thorough.

If you just want text (like on the Hobbit map you linked) that's a lot easier, [the Wiki explains it](http://wiki.warlight.net/index.php/Creating_the_SVG#Including_Text).

I know text is a lot easier, because I have text on my map already. I'll see what I want later. It's actually not like that important. Might add it in later updates though, cause I'm planning to release many updates, like drawing the territories with straight lines, and delete or add territories. So nicelooking pictures and things like that, I can take later.

First and Second test games is off, but I'd like one more, Invasion 3vs3. 2 more people, plz?
