Greetings, I'm a newcomer to this game, I decided to make a map of my own country wich was lacking in the game, I made a map using the real counties and districts and made it closest possible to the real terrain, like mountains, rivers and lakes to add the realism. I'm having trouble though in making the map smaller to be user friendly.. Can you guys give me some hints on that? Thanks

Location: Planet Earth, most of the time.
It all depends on what software you are using. I know GIMP has a reduction function to make images smaller. There's plenty software out there that can reduce the size of an image. Just find one that you are comfortable with.

i use Gimp myself, great free program. yes, the Scale Image function will make the map smaller. however, make sure the provinces are big enough for the province info to display properly. too small and they overlap and make the map difficult to play. if u have a file size issue with ur map image (i believe the max allowed by the map editor is 7 mb) u can Index Colors to reduce the file size. :partyyy:
