Creating a world-sized map, paint.net, etc.

This is the place for games which are currently being created and developed, and where the designer is listening to feedback from other players. The game is not ready to play, and the designers are not looking for sign-ups - indeed, they may have no intention of GMing the game themselves when it is finished. But your input is welcome!

Forum rules
Despite repeated requests, designers are still regularly posting maps of several hundred Kb size. All maps should be under 80Kb and preferable 50-60 maximum. Unless you have prior permission, any larger map will be removed without warning.

Any chance of the two of you putting together a brief tutorial on Inkscape in the Map-making section of Start Here? Paint.net does the job well, but if it can be improved on then tell us more!

I would be glad to help put together a tutorial on Inkscape. I'll talk with Pharaoh to see if he's willing to work on it as well.
