Draw the entire map outline. Ignore bonuses for now.
Draw a line where you want your first bonus border to be. Set the line width to 0,8 pixel.
Do the following. You can get quite quick at it after a while:
- Select the path
- Press CTRL+ALT+C
- Select the path and the map outline you drew earlier
- Press CTRL+-
- Press CTRL+SHIFT+K
There you go! A clean bonus border! Now do it until all bonuses are separate paths.
Draw a line where you want your first territory border to be. The width of the line doesn't matter now.
Select both the path and the bonus, and press CTRL+/.
There you go! A clean territory border! Now do it until all territories are separate paths.
I'm not going to bother explaining the rest of the map-making progress, this tutorial is just for the svg file.
Yay! A great map!
Tell me what you think of this method. It may not be faster than the inset-method, but I think it produces cleaner borders.
