Straight lines probably take up less file space...

NinjaNic, I'm asking which you prefer based on appearance!

i recommend to use straight lines and basically just get the map done,
later on you can always make the map prettier by using jagged or something similar.

While the Straight lines make it faster, the Jagged Lines are more realistic. I like the Jagged.

Wow, Spain :D

If they were real internal borders i would like the jagged, but as they are random borders, maybe straight are better. My vote goes for straight lines.

Well In my original version, I was using real world administrative divisions but decided to redesign the whole map and start over again. In this version, I am not necessarily bound to only using the actual divisions that countries have.

Each territory has atleast one city or town in it. Most have multiple cities in them though.

I don't think it's dreadfully important. In the highest rated maps, you have small-distance super jagged, regular jagged, relatively smooth, and actual smooth smooth.

I do think it's best to just start simple, get everything at least outlined, then you can easily refine things down. Just union two territories and redraw that section, rinse, repeat. What you don't want to do is invest a lot of time in complicated borders only to have to change them all.
