This is my first map. Please feel free to try it out and tell me what you think. If you find any errors or any ways you think it could be improved, let me know.

Thanks :)

Ok I will check that out. Linking things gets a little tricky when you have more territories than even the world map.

I see most of the present forum entries are 2 1/2 to 3 years old. If there is still any exchange in here, where do I go in the program to make a map. I have checked all of the file bar information, and see nothing about making maps.

There are some map making tools that have been made available by others over the years. Search for map editor in the forum.

The map maker that I prefer is Blaine Busler's Conquest Map Maker (requires Java runtime). The name of the conquest forum index to find this under is "New Conquest map editor [with corrected link]"
The link is: http://bcbusler.tripod.com/
The only complaint that I have with this program is that when you ask it to analyze territory borders you can only accept what it came up with, which sometimes connects territories that are close but not actually bordering, or maybe misses some are barely touching.
To fix these problems you need to open up the .map file that it saved (with a text editor like notepad) and go in and manually fix the links.
Also when you first load your bitmap background map image then go to save the file it creates, you need to change the extension in the save as from .bmp to .map or else it will overwrite your map image.
