I've kept this map very secret for a while now since I didn't want anyone stealing it :P But this is my first map, it's not quite done yet, I'd say I'm about two-thirds of the way there. It's taken me a few months, mostly because my computer crashed and I had to redo the whole thing since the file was corrupted. But anyway, here's the link for it, tell me what you think! :)

I believe that once it's completed it will be the second or third largest map on the site!

Tremendous effort! But make sure you read the map requirements about tiny territories (http://wiki.warlight.net/index.php/Map_requirements)

Many of those small territories are going to need to be removed.

That's no problem, I'll just group more together so they're not as small.

You mean merging them, right? Warlight hates groups.
And I think you should place the county bonuses right next to their bonus, instead of at the top, now it's hard to see what link belongs to which bonus.

Yeah, merge them. And I was gonna do that with the county bonuses but I don't know if it would be too cluttered or not. But if I do end up doing that should I just make the stars smaller and move them to their respective counties?

2 bonuses for Cameron county and 8 armies for 7 territories.

That'll probably drop a little as I clean up the smaller territories

Honestly, with the basic idea of the map, you are worried about bonus markers "cluttering" the map up? It seems like the most cluttered map I have ever seen. Also, where is Philly? I hope you left those a-holes out.

Like I said, I'm not done yet, but Philly's gonna be in there. And be careful calling them a-holes, that's where I'm from ;)

you could organise the county super-bonuses more logically. have them arranged analogously to their geographical positions, maybe.

These small territories are just as small as mess on USA Big map (Virginia "Independent Cities").

x you mean leave them where they are now but organize them to correspond to the county's location?
And yeah I realize that now grzechoo, hopefully I can make it a little better to handle once I merge some of them together.

Bad news (sorta): tried uploading the SVG today to add the next county, and it's too big :( Not sure how else I can clean it up to make it smaller--any suggestions??

you do know that a lot of the connections are missing.

That's bound to happen, there's a ton of territories lol. I'll go back and do a second look-through when (and if) I can get it all done.

merge territories and simplify paths

Don't use the simplify paths tool! That will ruin your borders!
Instead, you should manually simplify a few places, like Millcreek, Erie county. And you could also delete the flag. There's a lot of data in such an object.

Trust me, I tried that after I saved.
Lol but I'll start with the flag and see how far that takes me. I'll probably have to go back and simplify some like you said manually, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there

So I'm thinking about splitting Philadelphia County (same as the city) into several neighborhoods, probably as seen on this image:

Yes or no to the idea?

I can't find it on your map.

That's because I haven't added it yet, it'll probably be one of the last things to go on. I was just wondering ahead of time so I'm not screwing around, you know?

Well, the only reason I could think of for splitting Philadelphia is that it is a very large territory bordering many small ones, but since you haven't added it yet I can't tell whether to split it or not.

That was my thinking. Well I should hopefully be able to finish this map off tomorrow or Thursday at the latest, I'll split Philly up and see how it looks.

Quick update:
Changed the size to make the map bigger and to decrease the amount of bytes I'm using. I'm fixing all the center points before I complete the final two counties, so if I happen to miss any and you happen to see it, point it out for me! :)

The map is now done! If you'd like to test the map, comment and I'll invite you to a game. If there's anything wrong with the map, like missing connections, let me know and I'll change it once the map is over.
