Alright, time to get this started again...

This is a bus system map for the fictional city of Tawas, in the fictional country of Tanso (www (dot) reddit (dot) com/r/Tanso). I know it looks bad.

Also, I can't post images yet - or links - so you have to go here, sorry

FTFY. Just keep posting, you'll be able to post links and images.

Thanks for doing that - also good to know.


For scale, the south end of the orange line to Dewart Station is around 14 miles, and the "loop" of the gray and light blue lines to the east end of the dark blue line is about 7.

Here's an updated version, with a streetcar, more routes, a key, and frequency mapping:

It's been a long day (or time)...

Hi!
I got the inspiration to log in again, and here I am, back.


Over the past months, on Google Maps, I've been making a totally fictitious version of the Macau LRT. Included in it are 21 LRT lines (not including branches yet!) and 4 tram lines. Well, it's not yet done

It has been so long! I was wondering what happened to you.

Meanwhile I got around to revamp my version of One Island and I added a ton of features, such as now there are four 'rings' (They are incomplete due to the presence of the Treasure and Knot channels): Inner, Middle, Outer (where the motorway bypass runs) and Suburban. I also kept many names from the older version, as well as adding new ones such as Ariza-Pearson (the successor to Dairon's Rosales Pearson). The tram line has been sightly modified too, and now contains the following stops:
Aldera (For the Star Wars fans out there)
Ronda Alderamin (part of the middle ring, named after a star)
Universidad (Simple, where university is)
Calatorao (Part of the inner ring, is a town in Zaragoza province which also happens to give its name to what is Caoyang Lu station in real life)
Trigémina (A square so-named because the main road splits into three)
José Carlos (The main square, like the last version)
Archisiete (Spanish for the Sevii islands)
Navesar (I fused Navesar and Cosencia here)
Miralcanal (Like the last version)

Also, the rolling stock is pretty much unchanged, it still uses the Urbos 3 made by CAF.

Awesome! Welcome back!

I too will be restarting my fictitious map efforts soon. Hoping to finally compile a fictional subway map for Norfolk, VA with my original 10 lines, plus possibly two additional lines.

Also, while we were in campaign for the municipal elections that were held back in May, I updated my Zaragoza tram proposal. Dotted lines are possible extensions to future developments, black lines are those from the Aragon RER I posted a while back.

Thanks for the welcomes!

That Zaragoza tram looks insane!
I see blank spaces on the dotted lines. Is there anything there?

There is currently nothing there, I said these would be possible extensions should those areas be developed.

By the way, I visited Bordeaux in the last few days, and now I'm planning to come up with a fictional tram plan. It would incorporate current plans as well as some ideas from me.

Oh. I think you recently had almozar (or almuerzo?)

Macau LRT is still at 21 lines, combined a line with its branch.

Alright, I only recently discovered this thread (and very passionately scrolled through it) so it's probably only fair if I share my maps as well. Small problem though, since I usually create enormous Paint-maps I felt the need to upload them to Google Photos. To be fair it's a great host, but I can only share a link, not an image, which is slightly less intrusive.

So first:
Sertichnada Metro
Which was made fairly recently with a nice background of the river estuaries.

And secondly there's this monster:
Sygfride Metro & RER
With (and I only recently counted them) exactly 1.000 metro stations and another 58 RER-stations visible with no direct connection to the metro system. Sadly no background of the multiple rivers of this city, the map got crowded way too fast (something that translates in an obligatory inset for the main stations in the bottom right).

(And for those interested, no that's not me as the Google Avatar)

Funny enough I've had a shot at the LST network myself! I went for a different route and kind of ignored most of the existing Line 1.

(The green line reaches Chumash and the red line if partially below ground, most of it is a general tram/streetcar which shares the road like seen in Davis)

Did the same thing for Liberty City. I've been playing the game using just the Subway, which is quite doable, but I think we can agree that the system isn't perfect so I altered it a bit.


Ah well. Got more maps, but I think this is enough for one post.

1000 stations? Wow! You must have ran out of names. I can't see the pics because now I'm on mobile, but I'll check that massive metro system. For comparison, my Dairon metro,which is a replica of Shanghai's, 'only' has 292 stations, some with names like 'Mitochondrion' (However as the metro is made in Spanish it appears as La Mitocondria).

Well, I had no idea myself until I counted them, but in contrast to what you think I did not run out of names. I'm quiet creative and stubborn when it comes to finding new names (/naming logics) if I do say so myself.

What I did run in quiet often was naming a station, wondering for a couple of seconds whether the name was already taken and then searching half the map for that name. Which I guess is in a way similar to what you said, but well.

Keep track of them in a spreadsheet list; you'd find out about duplicate station names quickly enough.

I see the map is entirely symmetrical?

Wow, impressive, nice to see there's another "expert" on GTA maps here.

As you might have seen in my Los Santos proposal, I would've gone for underground tracks at the most parts.
Now you got me on a couple of good ideas, I'll take a look at the Liberty City map, too. Expect me to come up with a quite completely altered service pattern though, because - besides the system being quite nice for a small ingame feature - I found the idea of those two basic circle lines rather useless
