Sigh...I was busy at the moment

For Albany, I've already tried one, but my version of the system would be too extensive to fit the Beno Metro Map Creator.

This is just part 1 of a revived Manila Ferries (not caring if it includes Manila Bay). I've done four lines (one that I will be putting stations soon)

The word "first" in Alargule vocabulary could be a hyperbole or a sarcastic word...

When can I come back at this threat and once again be treated with proper and original 'fantasy' metro maps, like Cygnus-X1 posted, instead of those absolute hideous bento metro map default maps. Making a metro map is more then coming up with a system. A proper metro map is not only a schematical representation of metro lines, it is more a distorted geographical representation. People from a city can easily find their way in subway systems because they are highly familiar with them. However people not familiar with a city nor its metro should be able to find its way with a metro map. Please stop posting all those blunt hideous and extremely uninteresting system ideas without any extra information, not even the name of the city.

What the hell do you want a "Proper" metro map to look like? I've come across quit a few REAL metro maps that are just like these with a plain white background, and anyway, I actually kind of LIKE the look of the beno maps anyway. Lastly by geographic, do you mean I did not show rivers? REALLY ?"

Oh geez....like what CNB30 said. What do you expect?

Well, even though Barthje is a bit harsh, I do see his point. Fantasy maps for cities most non-Americans are not familiar with becomes a bit bland, eventually. Especially if no further context is provided. Plus: I'd think that a geographic map might be better suited to show how these lines relate to the city geography than a schematic map is.

That being said: maybe I can give you a challenge: how about making maps in this layout for existing systems? San Francisco, Chicago, Washington, NYC...or maybe even non-American cities like London, Paris or Berlin? Those maps might be an alternative to the ubiquitous urbanrail.net maps, which hover somewhere between the schematic and the geographic.

Of course, you'd have to post them in the other metro map thread

I definitely see your point.

My Cindyville map is made on Beno, but my other map I made on MS Paint. It took me months to finish it (including water bodies). My next challenge will be to integrate bus routes.

I agree withe Barthje88, although I also agree that his approach may not be as diplomatic as it could.

Perhaps there's a difference in expectations as well. I like to put a lot of time into the maps that I create in both system design and map design. I like to experiment with different headings, line widths, station icons, integration, etc, such that the map tries to approach the quality of those that are professionally made, i.e. something that could be put into use with no further modifications. However, that's just my aim, maybe other users are more into just getting something on paper.

On the other hand, I would think that even with the latter approach some level of detail to where density and popular destinations are should be taken into account. CNB30 himself said that he takes the location of stations simply from geographical relations, that seems like a bit of a corner cut. What's the point of designing a fantasy metro system that doesn't take into account where current (or projected) population centers are?
