This is my first map I did about my home country. I made it using inkscape and it took me about 12 hours. Some bonuses aren't seperated with thicker lines because I made the mistake of seperating bonuses too late and I was too lazy fix them.
Also Big thanks to warlight wiki and Incaman for his wonderful guide http://warlight.net/Forum/Thread?ThreadID=5837.
If you notice any errors, feel free to point them out.

your design is very well done. solid work! just two suggestions:

1) your bonusses are too big and unballanced. Usually they are sized like this:
bonus value = (number of territories within)-2 or -1
2) Set your bonus fields among their territories, which is much more comprehensible

Thank for the feedback :), I lowered bonus values as Ranek suggested. Also I decided I'll try to make borders near bonuses thicker, which will take some time.

might be not such a good idea in the end. just safe a backup, if you dont like the changes in the end.

Nice map, the bonuses are quite big also. Also it looks like the cities are to small?

Nice name you have there, Aldehyde, just take care that you don't oxidize further ;)

I tried to make city borders as lifelike as possible, but yes, I may need to make them larger. Also I'll try to not meet any carboxylic acids :)

Hmmm, actually I might discard my plan to make lines between bonuses thicker and make more, smaller bonuses.

Very good map, I like it. Eesti! The bonus system is odd, but I think it works well.
Sterling work.

For a beginner, it is a very good and solid map!
But some tips: Some territories appear very small, make sure a 20x20 circle in inkscape can fit in each territory or, in the warlight editor, make sure a 2 numbered army fit within each territories borders.
A 20x20 circle in inscape is exactly big enough for a 2 numbered army ;)

Good luck and I hope your map will be public soon after some testing games
If you need someone for testing, you may invite me ;)

Sorry for the delay.

I made cities and smaller territories bigger using a 20x20 circle as suggested and tested the map couple of times with friends. Seemed to work fine. And now I also made the map public :)!
