This is my first map that I have made. I have put it into testing mode, but I can't make a game with it because it says I can't have open seats, and that I have to invite someone to play. How do I do that? Also, how do I make the yellow lines to connect territorys over sea?

Good looking map, but you need to draw lines in the oceans that make the sea connections more obvious to someone who does not know which territories connect to which over the water.

When creating a multiplayer game with your test map, you have to invite persons manually to test game (from your friendlist for example). Also another option is just to make a game in singleplayer with bunch of AIs.

To indicate that two territories are connected over water, just draw a line between them in whatever program you're using, make it yellow and dashed if you want and don't set an territory ID for it. You don't have to worry about the line overlapping territories because territories will always be at the top when playing warlight (expect in map design).

Yes, water connections are a must. Draw a line (graphic) between connections.

Some missing connections:
Rydeem - Badenar
Johansburg (2 next to it)
Moira - Daystart
Nagawai - Dang Tnou

I stopped checking at that point. You need to click on every territory and make sure you have all connections

The two bonus links in the middle should be put within the bonus, they make no sense there.

And yes, once you do testing, remove the overlapping bonuses

What are overlapping bonuses? Sorry this is my first time.

When the different bonuses' borders are not adjacent, meaning you can only see one color (from one bonus.)
