I made a couple of silly mistakes in that map, there's no need for new tunnels under the East River, as Montague Street, Rutgers Street, and 63rd Street (upper level) tunnels are underused. Also two Brooklyn-Queens lines connecting to the 125th Street stations in Harlem, and a JFK-LaGuaria line.

I love the updates.

Kolothos-Patience can make maps on MS Paint.Agreed.With that full map,I got interested in it.
Arnorian-Nice update.I dissatisfy the station names/area names overlapping the lines.

By the way,making maps still.Wait.

Working on a new Paint map. Essentially this is a reorganisation of commuter lines within Glasgow (with only small new sections of railway built between Paisley and Glasgow Airport, and South Glasgow Hospital and Jordanhill) plus two new tram lines, running in a mix of on street in the city centre (like Manchester) and on former commuter lines. This sort of network is quite achievable for Glasgow.


I've just started filling in the interchanges. I'm trying to go for a more German approach to a metro map (rather than the usual LU style). The two main regional and intercity termini are highlighted in bold.

Kolothos,another wonderful map!

As I see,I love(not just like) your German approach for the map.You're the central of Glasgow maps,I agree.

Complete the map,and I will get the full interest!!!

It may sounds weird, but...... this is my Malta's Light Rail System:


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

The red line links Sliema with the International Airport, and the blue line links Valletta with Birkirkara.
I heard about a tram project in this country.

Right, here goes again with paint, I'm really getting the hang of things now. Here I am experimenting with right angles. Since Glasgow currently has no rail map, I've simply drawn out what currently exists in Glasgow, but in an unusual sort of way. I've accidentally missed out a few lines, and this map has quite a ways to go, but I got bored with the other one, and I'd like to share my work so far! Almost all of the stations are missing so far, I've only really done the Cathcart Circle ones, along with the main interchanges.


All these lines are currently in operation within Glasgow, but there is no map in existance to show this!

KOLOTHOS!!!HOW DID YOU DO THAT?!?!
You'll personally tutor me in professional Paint map making skills,or else...

And one little correction,between Mount Florida and King's Park,an interchange symbol.


Murakamisenior(I know it's Japanese+Spanish),yep,never heard of a rail system in Malta.Why not link San Giljan with Sliema,Valetta,Il-Birgu to the airport?Link the Red line to the War Museum as well.Why not make a Central Circle Line(like I always do)?

Suggestions.

I am currently working on the Tagbilaran Rail Transport System.

Yep, paint can be quite powerful if you use it right. I did do a lot of cleaning up at the pixel level though, and the map benefits from having quite a nice shape in the first place.

If you've any particular questions, I'd be happy to post up a few tutorials here!

And that interchange point is there on purpose, I just copy/paste that particular one for when I need another on the map, it'll be gone once I'm complete.

Still working on my map though.
I'm off to Amsterdam in the next few days, so I won't have time to fully answer the questions (with images from paint), but I'll briefly answer them:

1) I'm using Windows 8, but it's exactly the same as paint on Windows 7. Ideally I'd rather use pre-Windows 7 paint.
3) Interchanges are easy. They're all based on a simple shape made by holding down SHIFT with the circle tool, with a black outline and SOLID COLOUR FILL on. I made them one pixel wider than each line. Connecting the interchanges was easy. Just drag them next to each other (remember to select 'transparent' selection) and then use the pencil tool to connect them with individual pixels.
4) No, I am making my own paths using the line tool. Holding down SHIFT makes them exactly 0, 45 or 90 degrees in angle.
5) I used the 'add new colours' button to make my own custom colours.
6) Disused railway is better explained with pictures, but I'll get round to that.

Eh? What's your problem mate? I'm just helping.

I use the capital letters to show that I'm talking about the 'shift' key on the keyboard.

I can't tell if you're threatening me or you're joking.

I know you're using the SHIFT key,I get it.I won't disturb you until you make your next map.Deal?

And I will make my next map on Paint,if you like.

Actually,it's a 7 hour time difference between Manila and Glasgow.

Dang! I never knew that! I used Windows 7 Paint for my recent maps. Even created my own markers for interchange stations.

I knocked the above up in about an hour or so, it's not like I've spent months on it.
