Large Warcraft Eastern Kingdom Map: 6/24/2016 17:13:08

Hi guys, I have experience with making a small map with a friend but this will be my first large map. I am a bit worried about the size of the map since I don't have experience with large maps. I have outlined all the landmasses including islands and the map is a pretty large file so I have already simplified in Inkscape. I then tried uploading the map with 3 territories to see if it would be ok and the size was much to large in PIXELS (I think because I had another unit originally) so I shrunk it down to see how it would look and if it would work. Please take a look at the map I will be using and my progress and let me know if you have any advice on not losing quality on a large map.

Thank you!

your territories have too many details. you will never complete the map with this amount of details. you will hit the memory size limit long before it is done. I strongly recommend to simplify the borders and delete all the points that cause these tiny curves. btw, are three territories all you have right now?

Hi guys, yes Ranek I have only separated 3 territories but I have everything on the map outlined, they just need to be divided and named as territories.

I understand your comment about the tiny curves. Could I go back and do that at the end? It's unfortunate to hear that about the memory size limit because I wanted the map to have a good amount of detail. Is there any alternative method that I can employ to reduce the size without sacrificing the quality of the map?

Thanks guys

you can always make changes, but simplify the map when everything already perfectly fits will be a massive waste of time and very frustrating.
