what's the best way to transport passengers? Star-shaped from the main station, or circular?
How would you arrange the transport in either cases? Star-shaped obviously with at least one train per connected city?
If you want to maximize profit, it generally boils down to having long distances. Up to a certain optimum, the longer the distance the higher the profit. And that would bring you to the star shaped network in this particular case.
From a more logistical point of view: the star shape requires a lot of platforms at the center city. While in the circular shape you can do with one or two platforms in each town (depending if you want one-way or two-way traffic).
Let there be the "star" hub at all 5 cities.
You might end up with a system resembling something like this...
Code: Select all
City 1 | | City 2-------+-------City 3 | | / \ / \ City 4 City 5
