Peloponnesian war big map: 7/13/2016 19:43:55

Once I managed to overcome my noobiness in terms of mapmaking,I started making this map of the Peloponnesian war.There is,I believe only one map with this theme currently,and I thought it would be interesting to make a much larger one.

I could have continued posting updates on the other thread,but I thought I should make this one for the map to be the actual topic.

Any suggestions or corrections are accepted(yes,I know many bonuses in Boeotia do not have corresponding territories,I am reworking that area.)

There Is a magnifying glass on one of the eastern islands, and the background has a purple Greece outline to the left side

Yes,I thought it would look better than making the territory a circle(because it was too small)

I'd like to ask,are these territories too complex for the file to meet the limitations?

Yes, these'll make the file quite heavy and warlight might have a bad time reading. I'd say give or take two more stages of Simplification would be good, but that means you'll have to redo some stuff.

Also, I suggest you expand the map a bit east to show the hint of Magna Grecia. Segesta played quite a role, helping athens survive the famine for a long time, being their major overseas trade partner.

Of course,that will happen,I intend on including Sicily.Also,it is kinda weird because even though I simplify the lines,when I press ctrl+/ to separate the territories,the line becomes more complex.I'm not sure how to fix that.Maybe separate the territories with series of straight lines?

1416, they can simply enlarge the map. Didnt you read?
Looking at the map, the creator seems to be well prepared to me.

Update:

So I found that by converting the lines ito paths,selecting the bonus,then preeing ctrl + - and ctrl + shift + K seems to make them much less complicated than ctrl + /.

I will be remaking this map.At least it is going to look better as I will correct my mistakes,especially at Attica.

So something very weird happened

When I was finished redrawing Corinth,I realised that the actual city of Corinth did not have a corresponding territory.I went back and saw that Territory_74,the original ID of the territory,seemed to be taken.

I looked around and found no object with this ID,so I gave it a random territory ID and moved on.

Once I made the connections,this is what I saw:

http://prntscr.com/bufrn0

The links seem to be going to the corner of the map,but I could not find anything there.

As you can see from the map preveiw,it does not seem to impare what the players will see,or the functionality of the map.

However,I can't stand seeing those lines not being where they are supposed to.Does anyone have some insight into this?

EDIT:

I used the object finder and turned out the object was a random path near Argos.Anyways,solved it.

I think I will hold off on reworking Thebes,since they do not need to be changed visually and I managed to drop the size from 1,024 kb to 827 kb by removing paths

I will probably go on to make Thessalia or Sparte

Update:

Just added Thessalia and reworked Evia.It should look much smoother and less messy now.

What I find surprising is that,despite adding territories,the file size has shrinked(799 kb as of now),which is quite promising

Με τις τιμές που βάζεις σε κάθε μπόνους, χάνεται η στρατηγική αξία του χάρτη

Δεν ξέρω αν αναφέρεσαι στο γεγονός ότι έχω μπόνους για κάθε περιοχή ή για το ότι σχεδόν όλα αξίζουν 4

Αν ισχύει το πρώτο,αυτόν τον χάρτη τον φτιάχνω για παιχνίδια διπλωματίας,όχι ffa ή κάτι τέτοιο.

Αν ισχύει το δεύτερο,θα τα αλλάξω όλα αργότερα,απλά είναι πιο εύκολο να τα έχω ως 4 προς το παρόν

Γενικά,προτιμώ τους χάρτες με μπόνους σε κάθε περιοχή.Εξ'άλλου,όποιος θέλει απενεργοποιεί τα μπόνους της κάθε περιοχής και κρατάει τα μεγάλα τριγωνικά

Translation:

I don't know if you are referring to that fact that I have a bonus for every territory,or that almos every bonus is worth 4

If the former is true,I am making this map for diplomacy games,not ffa or something similar

If the latter is true,I'll change all of them later,it's just easier to have every bonus as 4 for now

Generally,I prefer maps with bonuses on every territory.After all,anyone can disable the territorial bonuses and use the big triangular ones

May I inform you that progress may be a bit slower the next couple of days,as I am a bit burned out and I am feeling like working on the lore for another map for now.

-Says progress will be slower in the next couple of days

-Proceeds to make that entire nation of Sparte in that time period

Anyways,the file is currently sitting at 1.187 kb,which probably means I'll have to rework Thebai
