So my map looks like this so far, I haven’t even made bonuses or territories like stuff you click on that shows arrows.

Okay so even if I fix that problem, the problem being the map is not centered.

How do I create actual bonuses like stuff you click on that shows arrows? I watched this tutorial and tried what the guy said at 8 minutes but that didn’t work for me, I think I made the whole thing wrong.

Right click on the object, then select "object properties." Change the object ID to BonusLink_(insert bonus name here). For example, if you were making a map of the US, to make the bonus for Oklahoma, you would type "BonusLink_Oklahoma" into the object ID box.

Note that special characters (commas, spaces, etc.) are not allowed. So if you want a bonus that's two words (i.e. Northern Oklahoma) it would say "BonusLink_NorthernOklahoma".

It's the same principle with territories, except with numbers. Each territory should be named "Territory_1", "Territory_2", "Territory_3", and so on. It doesn't particularly matter if it's in order, as long as you don't have 2 territories of the same number. The number they have doesn't matter, as you won't actually name the territories until you upload the map to Warzone.

Once you upload your map, your bonuses won't show up immediately. First, you must open up the bonus window, add a new bonus, and give it the exact same name that you gave it on Inkscape (in this case, Oklahoma or Northern Oklahoma. Make sure you add the space when you're on Warzone). Assign it a color and value, then click create, and the bonus link will show up and be clickable.

Territories will also be clickable unless their ID is invalid. If it's not clickable, then that means its ID is not "Territory_(insert number here)", and you need to fix it.

Hope this helped.
