I've made a map of Montenegro (Crna Gora), and I'm about ready to release. Any suggestions?

Yes, the borders are messy...

Judge by everything but aesthetics from here-on.

Bit harsh everyone, but the truth isn't wrong - its bad. I suggest you redo. Look up a couple of guides and go to the wiki.

Ok, thanks for the constructive criticism, Apollo; I just want to know what is wrong. Is the aesthetics all that's wrong?

And yes, I made two test games against people.

I'm sorry to say basically everything, even the bonuses boxes aren't square! If you want help I guess you can message me if you want. But look at guides and the wiki first.

Just look at a high rated map and then look at your map.

You guys are being ridiculous, it's his first map. Not everybody makes 5 stars right out of the gate. Yeezus especially, this is unacceptable. We're a map making community not a "Bash him into the ground until he stops" community. We don't need another bane

Lol For a first map, at least it isn't completely unplayable? Don't worry ( Russian characters ) you'll get better. Everybody needs a foundation.

Жұқтыру as you have made some testgames you will know best if it is fun to play or not. and if it is good for you, there is no reason why you shouldnt publish it. otherwise, this is your first map and lacks on basic skills. It wont be such a big effort to improve some issues, unfortunately there are a lot of them. You could have a look how other maps do look like and try to copy some ideas. If you have any questions about it, you will find experienced mapmakers, who will help you out, within this forum. If you are really interested in creating maps for the warlight community you should take the time to improve your skills. =)

Step 1: Under File, Edit, View, Layer, etc. there should be fourteen boxes each with little picture symbols. Enable all those. Now when you need lines to overlap within bonuses, it will be a piece of cake. When you don't need them to between bonuses, just turn them off and zoom in close to make them neat and next to each other.

Step 2: You'll still get no play on the map like 99% of the rest of Warlight maps including my own.

Tip: View -> Grid, this might help if you making bonus squares in combination with step 1.

I'd also suggest at least 50 territories so it doesn't get boring but that's my own opinion.
