Hey everyone,

I am making Warlight's first map of Austria. I have a few questions however.
1) Should I use the German names for states? Examples: Wien instead of Vienna, Niederösterreich instead of Lower Austria, etc.
2) How do you create a territories with a cut-out in it (exclaves)?
3) Should I include the micro state of Liechtenstein in the map?

I would greatly appreciate an answer for question 2 especially.
Thanks,
Nanaimo

I think so. It would make it feel more authentic.

2) How do you create a territories with a cut-out in it (exclaves)?

You select both and then use the difference feature.
See: http://wiki.warlight.net/index.php/Inkscape_tips "Cutting Holes" for more information

3) Should I include the micro state of Liechtenstein in the map

HECK YEA!!!!!! Liechtenstein is never going to get it's own map (at least a good one) and plus, it's just awesome!!!!

If you are using inkscape, under the "path" drop-down menu, use the "difference" tool to make a space for exclaves. Before you do that though, be sure to make make a copy of the object with ctrl-d.

EDIT: Nevermind, I didn't answer fast enough.

1) I would personally use the English names, but that's personal preference.

2) Can you word that question slightly better? I don't get what you're asking.

3) No, Lichtenstein is not part of Austria, it's a separate country. Only include it if you're going to call the map Austria and Lichtenstein.

3. Only if you believe it adds strategic value/playabilety to the map.
