First off, my map:https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=51379
This is a really rough draft- it's my first, and I made it a while back, then forgot about it. Just now, I finished it up(naming territories, connection points, etc).
When trying to submit it, I waited the usual 24-48 hours, and eventually got a message-
First off, congrats on finishing your map!
On this wiki page, there are a list of requirements that all maps must meet before they can go public: https://www.warlight.net/wiki/Map_requirements
This map, Ukraine (Medium/Large) version 1.0, doesn't seem to meet all of the requirements. Please fix the issues listed below and change your map back into public mode.
Player-controllable territories can never overlap each other. You should reduce the size of one of the overlapping territories so that both territories don't co-exist in the same spot.
This confused me, and if you look at my map(link at top), you'll feel the same way. From my perspective, my issue are gaps, not overlaps. Could someone take a look and give me a second opinion?
Red Army, Timinator- I understand the concept of making maps quite well- this is a map from my very beginning. As for the guide(https://www.warlight.net/Forum/10806-easy-tutorial-making-clean-map-borders
), I don't use Inkscape, so it doesn't apply to me. I tend to just make the drawing rough, then zoom in and finetune the borders, like so:https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=51931(Just a little map I started, first draft so the borders are rougher)
Red Army, I also didn't consider this to be finished, and I'm certainly willing to go back and work on it-I'm just not sure why I got that error message, while my problem seems to be the exact opposite.
