I could move missouri up, but then it'd be level with Nebraska.

I've tried tweaking it, i might be able to figure something out though, i'm gonna try a bit more

Perhaps if you flip flop Missouri's name and shadow. Maybe that will allow enough space for Kansas on the small map.

i like what andy said better because then you can let missouri run into the river alittle then you can put kansas's army shadow maybe a little higher or lower then the boarder and you can make that run into the river a little and then you can put kansas in the opposite corner

edit: kind of how you have it set up in the large :wink:

I changed Missouri to Illinois, because Illinois is shorter... I also changed the XML accordingly, however...

Error: Country Illinios appears in continent Central USA but does not have its own country entry

Error: Country Wisconsin has border Illinios that does not have its own country entry

Warning: Country Illinois does not appear in any continent

Warning: No other countries border on Illinois (it cannot be attacked)

Warning: Illinois has Wisconsin as a border, but not vice versa

Warning: Illinois has Michigan as a border, but not vice versa

Error: Country Michigan has border Illinios that does not have its own country entry

Summary: 4 warnings and 3 errors detected


then, from my xml...
<country>
<name>Illinois</name>
- <borders>
<border>Wisconsin</border>
<border>Michigan</border>
</borders>
- <coordinates>
<smallx> <smallx>322</smallx>
<smally>278</smally>

</smallx>
<smally></smally>
<largex> <largex>384</largex>
<largey>328</largey>
</largex>
<largey></largey>
</coordinates>
</country>


anybody see why it has errors?

As far as wisconsin and michigan go, they both have illinois also (ie, it can be attacked) and it is listed as a component in Central USA.

All I did was replace Missouri in the xml with Illinois. before there weren't any errors, now there are

It seems that you have spelt Illinois wrong in several places...

You have spelt it Illinios in the Central USA continent bracket, and Illinios in the Winconsin borders so it cannot see a country entry because it is looking for Illinios instead of Illinois.

So... To get rid of each of these Errors and Warnings:

1)Error: Country Illinios appears in continent Central USA but does not have its own country entry
Change the spelling from Illinios to Illinois in the Central USA continent bracket

2)Error: Country Wisconsin has border Illinios that does not have its own country entry
Change spelling from Illinios to Illinois in Winconsin's borders

3)Error: Country Michigan has border Illinios that does not have its own country entry
You've spelt it Illinios again! Change the spelling and then everything should be sorted

That should clear up the warnings as well... If that makes sense, in short just check all the spellings of Illinois ;).

Lookin Good! :D

LOL, thanks haydena, I did a quick look at each, and they all appeared to look the same. I just thought Illinois started looking strange after awhile.

thanks

Lets give it until the end of the day (or so). This has been quite a map making process...the longest creation of a map I believe. But hopefully all that time and effort from you and everyone in the Foundry, will translate into a wonderful and new type of map---of the giant kind.
