Takeshi, let me explain. There are two ways to make the outline for territories, Bezier Curves
and Draw Freehand Lines
.Draw Freehand Lines
Using this method, you create a path, and Inkscape makes the nodes for you. Generally speaking, it makes more tidy borders, but it can look messy if you don't simplify them using Ctrl+L
. You can end up using a lot more memory with this method, so if you're making a big map, then you'll want to avoid drawing free hand.

This method is the opposite; you create the nodes and then Inkscape joins them up into a path. Borders normally end up looking more jagged* using Bezier Curves unless you make a lot of of nodes. However, this means that a territory made using Bezier Curves will normally use less memory, and will therefore allow to have more, so it's better for maps with about 1 500 territories or more.

*= This is why Bane doesn't like them - he thinks they don't look as neat.
This is what the symbols look like so you know where to find them:
