If your talking about creating the bonuses on your map i can help. just follow these steps:

1- create your boxes next to each bonus or wherever you want them. (a normal size bonus box is 16x16 pixels)

2- Name each bonus box change the ID of it to BonusLink_nameofbonus. (eg BonusLink_UK) to do this on inkscape right click the box then select object property's and then enter what i just said into the ID box.If your using other software its probably similar to the process on inkscape

3- Once you have done this to all your bonus boxes you need to first of all activate the design maps tab for the warlight multilayer menu. Once you have done this and uploaded your map you need to go into the edit map view. Once there click on the bonus window button and type in all your bonuses. so for the BonusLink_UK just type in UK and the bonus box should appear.

4- To change the colour and the income of each bonus box just click the edit button next to each bonus box and then you can change these properties of each box.

5- To add territories to each box you need to click on each territory individualy and tick the bonuses you want the territory to be included in at the bottom left of the screen.

Just follow these steps and you should be fine, if you need any more help or these instructions arent clear enough just ask me to go into more detail.

Actually I have one more question... I drew a a large rectangle (using Inkscape). On top of the large rectangle, I added several small rectangles that were territories. I am making all the small rectangles on top of the big rectangle a bonus. My question is, do I have to name the big rectangle a territory or anything, in order to make it a non-territory but part of the bonus?

Like, let's say the bonus is called Building. The large rectangle is "Building" and the small rectangles are rooms (territories) part of Building. Do I have to name the large rectangle "Building?"

Oh and by the way, how do I make a distribution mode? Do I upload it first? Or do I do it offline?

Hmmm, not sure exactly what your saying but if you dont want the big rectangle to be a territory just dont name it anything but make sure you give an ID to all your small rectangles which will be in the bonus (When im doing this i just give them number such as Territory_1)

And for making a scenario distribution you need to upload the SVG first.

Just a hint when your creating maps which i do is do part of the maps territorys at a time and then upload the svg to make sure all the territories you have done are ok as you dont want to upload the svg and find out half the territories arent there.
