OK hi guys, I am a new map maker in this community and i have a few complaints with my map War For Navstol, namely that the numbers dont fit in the circle things and that the bonuses overlap and the canvas is too big for the map. However, in the SVG for the bonus overlapping things, most of them seem fine apart from maybe 1 and the canvas (white box?) i pressed the fit drawing to canvas thing button or whatever. And for the bonuses what is the min size for the numbers to fit in, or can i edit this number size? Thanks for much
Sincerely, CelloGuy[TPBI]

Which program are you using to draw your map with?

You can’t edit number size. They’re automatic and will always be in the center of your bonus object.

Go to document options to manually edit canvas size. Max is 3330 x 2400.

Wulfhere.... dude... those guys are literally higher level than me... how could i get that many alts and guitarguy is my friend not an alt, if you look at his singleplayer campaign he is further in and how much time do i have to make alts. I literally have no ults so take a look at the levels and stuff first before you accuse me of making alts

That would be because I was playing with people who approximately have the same timezone as me therefore would be on at approx the same time as me... Your logic is so bad

Firstly, some people can like things you dont, its preference, second, its not all about art, third, you could leave constructive feedback instead of just being an asshole and I would attempt to implement it into any further maps. TBH I dont care if you leave bad reviews on my map if the things there are genuine, such as the territories overlapping, but if you will just be an asshole to mapmakers, whether it be me or not, you just discourage people from making maps (I will be continuing to make maps so you can leave bad reviews on them if you want to continue being a trolling asshole). When you leave a review on a map, you leave constructive criticism and not just be a general asshole when I ask for help in this thread. That is the point of a review, to help the mapmaker make the map better. So just stop being an asshole and look at the facts. They clearly arent my multis so stop accusing me of rigging it.

Yeah I took your constructive criticism into account and I made this thread to ask for help and then you were a complete asshole in this thread so shut up you absolute idiot. Just because no one cares about anything you do cos its all shit, doesnt mean you have to be an asshole to other people. I was happy for your criticism on the map but when you are an asshole in a thread I make attempting to fix the problems I have in the map, then you are just stupid.

I left constructive criticism

yeah man, you're totally reasonable and non- aggressive and only want to help...

obvious troll is obvious


Anyways, on to something that I actually care about:

So you say your bonuses overlap in warlight, but you see no problem in inkscape. That's because, while you can set the stroke width in inkscape to whatever you want, it is always changed to a width of 1 in warlight.(for territories, that is)

So if you want to not have overlapping territories, follow these steps:

Let's say you got a bonus you want to make. You have drawn the line separating it from the rest of the map.

(1) Select the line and set the stroke width to 0.8

https://prnt.sc/gv6dum

(2) Change from stroke to path (ctrl + alt + c). It should look like this:

https://prnt.sc/gv6f40

(3) Select the line and the map and break apart (ctrl + shift + K)

(4) Draw the individual territories inside the bonus and do a division (ctrl + /) It should look like this at the end:

Guitarman is almost certainly GuitarGuy's alt. They may or may not both be your alt, but at the very least I would wager the 3 accounts belong to a maximum of 2 people.

Aside from those two accounts though the rest of the votes look rather legitimate.

either way, I think reporting it to Fizzer if you suspect vote rigging makes a lot more sense than trying to drag the OP's name through the mud.

I think guitarman is an alt too, but not mine, i have downvoted it and want the review removed if possible. I downvoted it at the start as well so if Fizzer could delete the suspect account that would be good.

Also, I believe Wulfhere is probably leaving bad reviews and unhelpfuling all of the posts except his own so thats also not helping..
