Hey, i usually don't visit this section, but i highly reccomend you to use PowerPoint for drawing maps, it s a great help.

This is original map for Belgrade tram network that I drew in PowerPoint, i belive fantasy maps could be drawed too

Can you teach me how to draw such cool things using PP?

Thanks in advance

I want to draw a fantasy network for a fantasy city too... can you tell me what is the best point (lines, stations, city shape, streets?) to start with to avoid giving up early?

for some reason, I feel more comfortable drawing by hand
eventhough there are limited colours and irregularities

drawing on paint always provides "generic" maps for me

This is for a fictional city: WORLD-CITY

All stations are from systems around the world. If you find I have used a name twice, please, let me know.

And this one is for Girona.

Girona is aprox. 100.000 people. It is the capital city of my province (Spain). Of course, there is no a metro system in Girona!!!

Just a question:

@alargule, kub66... How do you post your images? You have to click over my images in order to see them correctly, but you insert them directly, with no click...
Can you explain me, please...

Don't use the thumbnail code, but the direct link url. Insert that url between [img]X[/img] - where X is the url. That way your images are posted directly. But thumbnails are OK as well; that way the pages don't get that blown up...

I always started with the network, and designed the city around it. That way, at least I had a network... Later on, I'd fill in the major streets, major stations, rivers, parks, railway lines etc. If necessary, I'd change some line configurations - or street patterns for that matter. You can mould it in whatever way you want it - that's the whole idea of a fantasy network...

Awesome map... funny idea, too, to use existing station names from around the world instead of dreaming them up yourself
