Okay, there are some problems,:

  • When i "feed" the website with my SVG file, and click convert, or whatever... it's just a kind of reloading the page.
  • If you look closely, you could see that, in this image there are some "Joined" and lost territories.

  • And please explain the First Things First and The Magic steps, i don't get it.
    [/list]


    Additional: If a map has been public, and i want to edit a small mistakes, and make it public again, is it going to be categorized as a new map?

There are quite a few tutorials on the map development forum about how to make maps, make smooth lines and how to make the bonuses overlap or not. Just search for them :D

And one more, overlapping border. Borders from different bonuses shouldn't overlap, but ones from same bonuses should. If i didn't do that, can the map goes public?
And, is it right, that the minimal size of a territory is 16 pixels?
EDIT:
@Lisa_Medusa, you could do it, just search the name of street, avenue, etc. on Google Map. Google will tell you the border. screenshot, Copy-Paste in inkscape.

I don't think the borders within a bonus have to overlap, but it makes the gameplay easier and the maps look nicer, also it's usually easier for the mapmaker. I would try to get them overlapping.

I don't believe there is a minimum size of a territory so long as it fits the two-digit armies number in (you can check this after uploading you SVG to Warlight).

Okay, so my army number is A BIT overlapping, not really much, about 2mm (about 0.08 inch) in full zoom, is it okay?
