I have a problem...: 7/5/2016 21:45:46

So I decided to make a Peloponnesian war map as my first to test how good I am.
Found a nice .svg file: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/57/Map_Peloponnesian_War_431_BC-en.svg

It was way too big for warlight,so I removed much of the detail(mountains etc.)

I ended up with something like this: http://prnt.sc/bp9d18

Uploaded it on warlight,and this is what I see: http://prnt.sc/bp9aa8

I tried turning letters into paths,removing them altogether,nothing seems to work.Does anyone know why this is happening?

Alright,it seems that everything is black because the sea is actually the backhround,which warlight turns into black.That still doesn't explain whay nothing else appears though.

I am only a beginner mapmaker (only 1 so far), but did I get it right that you tried to upload the SVG from Wikipedia?
If yes, I suggest you reading through this: https://www.warlight.net/wiki/Map_Making

If I understood something wrong, sorry...

could you possibly give a link to your map? and if possible could you show an image of what the map is supposed to look like?

I just started making this map,so it will take some time until I make it public for testing,but I intend on making it pretty detailed and with a bunch of things scenario makers can take advantage of.

It will also contain Sicily and maybe Cyprus.

The idea is that there is a big team battle going on at the start(the Peloponnesian war),while there are neutral nations that can do whatever they want.

I am open to suggestions regarding the mechanics of the map,such as representing oligarchs vs democrats

When making a warlight map, each territory has to have an ID of Territory_, make sure you did that. That may not be the problem though.

of course I know that,I will have to take care of the map outline before I make territories

One work around is to screenshot the SVG, upload the screenshot to your inkscape file and then trace bitmap on it, then delete the original.

What I ended up doing is filling the sea,copying it onto another file,and subsequently copying all the other parts into it.I am not very familiar with the trace bitmap thing

I also want to have separate entities so that making the territories is easier

Using 'trace bitmap' is really simple. Select the image you have imported, go into the path menu and click 'trace bitmap', then tick 'colours' near the bottom of the window that pops up, then make sure the number of scans is either 7 or 8, then click ok.

I'd like to ask a question:Should I include territories for the Persian Empire or not?I am leaning towards no at the moment

I would generally like to keep it focused on the Peloponnesian war,the best reason that I can see to include the Persian Empire is for the wars on Cyprus between Atenians and the Pesian Empire,so I guess I could include some territories.

Well,it seems that,as of now,this map is way too detailed to fir the size limit,and I am sad to see that,because I wanted it to be detailed...Guess I'll have to make some changes,especially if I want to put sicily in :(

apollo, as soon as youve uploaded a map on warlight you can share a link. it doesnt need to be public. on the bottom of the left frame is a button which says: link for sharing. just try it - it is very much self explaining. with that link it will be much easier to help you out on any issue within this thread. =)

Do you think I should have Athens and other important cities in boxes around the map,or just let them be territories?

you can make up territory borders for each city, it doesn't really matter. if you are going to do that, try and make it strategic

I dont really like this feature, but this is your map and if you think this would be a good asset, just do it.
