What's the best way to make double borders between bonuses, as shown here?

Btw, I'm not using Inkscape, so advice solely for Inkscape won't help

The problem is, I draw the territories by hand, so I overlap a bit. Moving it won't work, I'd have to redo them

Use Beiziers, and modify the nodes yourself.

This again...

alternatively, if you really want to

But that is more confusing and is often messier.

You can also use the inset tool. This does all bonuses at once and is quicker but is messier:

This tutorial is for illustrator.

Just select the boreder (grabs two nodes), and hold shift and keep doing that. Then drag the border over a bit. Takes some doing but if you minimize nodes it is pretty fast

I'm using drawsvg.org, and none of that works... Could someone try it out?

Use inkscape.

I don't have the option to use Inkscape- I use a Chromebook

I tried to make the borders by hand, could someone check out the border between Atlantic Morocco and it's neighboring bonuses, and tell me how it looks? I check out some other big, well rated maps- I barely see the difference unless zoomed in to the max

I tried to solve this in a mathematical way

and I got nothing... (took heaploads of variables like stroke size, x and y of both territories, stroke to territory size ratio (is that even a thing?), scientific sht...)

It's because the relationship between two territories can take on so many different possibilities (one territory bordering north of another, one territory barely touching another, one territory almost completely surrounding an isolated territory)...

so many that... ermm...

yea you'll just have to do this by hand lel

It's OK, thanks anyhow. I figured out a quick way to do it by hand, and the results are good

@Zach 105, it's possible to run inkscape on a chromebook via crouton visit
https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton that's the git hub page for it, and explains most of what you need to do to get linux running on your chromebook, and then just install inkscape onto the linux side of your chromebook.

The problem is, my Chromebook can't run dev mode. I've tried, and I asked support, but they said since it nulls your warranty, they can't support it... I'm getting a new one soon
