Sorry for my late answer.

Thank you!

I am using this website that another user suggested some pages before:

http://beno.org.uk/

While some other maps are made by Open Office Impress. Now I'm working on the geographic map of Shiosau city rail network.


With a fantasy map of Tokyo, do you mean a map drawn by myself about the real Tokyo stations, or just a fantasy one inspired by Tokyo's network?

I completed the regional rail network of Shiosau city.
I still have to complete some details
(such as the single line informations and some other), but I completed most of the work, I guess.

As you can see, I also prepared the logo of the national railways (Izaland Railways Group).
The red and white line stopping only at major stations is the high speed maglev line, with a service speed of 600 kmph.

The main corridors however can support speeds of 200-250 kmph allowing so high speed intercity trains.

This is only one of the many provinces of my fantasy country.
Shikinodze province has a total extension of 105,630 km² with a population of about 28 millions inhabitants,
most of them living in the capital Shiosau and a few other cities.
For this reason, except for urban areas, most of the province are is unurbanized and left to the nature.

Ideally, this province, located in the north has a landscape and a climate recalling northern Europe.

I made this map with Open Office Impress.
And of course I'm still working on the geographical map of Shiosau's subway. After that I will continue with other cities and provinces of my country.

Now that loop line definitely gives me an impression that it indeed is the city proper itself. Great work! Looking forward for more...

With the Maglev, I believe that train transport will be much more efficient (but costly to construct) for most commuters, as well as a clean air alternative. Besides, what else are you planning for the city and suburbs?

Ever considered a separate version, in Hiragana? (I'm slightly intolerative of Kanji, since there ain't no system behind it except the stroke order :/ ) This would make it a little bit more like Japan :P (Even though I assume this isn't exactly what you're after aiming for, just for the fun :P )

My bus map is delayed because I have a more important project to work on, but it is a pretty large one since I base it on my existing SimCity region. The main question: will I release the map with bus lines only, metro and rail lines only, or all three in one?

Thank you very much!

I am just planning the geographic subway map now, as well as some 2D models of the main rolling stock of railways and subways.

And actually, this is just a major city of my big fantasy country. The capital city would have more than 150 millions inhabitants in the metropolitan area, so the rail network is also huge. I have been working on it for about 2 years, but the map I am realizing probably reached my computer's limit ( it is too slow to work on, so I am thinking about what to do to continue).

In fact I have been many times to Japan and Korea ( of which I also study the languages), so I guess I am quite influenced by their names.

Actually my fantasy country's placenames are based on Kanji, but with their own reading. Like for japanese, there is a kind of "on reading" close to that of Japanese ( yet with some differences), and a "kun reading" totally different. I am also having many problems in trying to give a logic to all the names. Usually when I give the name to a station I just take it randomly from my head, but recently I try to give them a meaning, so I should start to write down a database of names and Kanji.

By the way, Shiosau written in Kanji officially is 有根, that means "presence of a root", probably from an ancient etymologic meaning ( I still have to write about the history of my coyntry )

I just use the Open Office Power point. It is open source, so easily obtainable.
For lines, I usually write them with the control "45 degrees lines" and then I convert them to curves and smooth the angles. It takes quite a lot of work though.

I remember! Actually I am going to integrate it in the network of a bigger city.
