People around the forum have very differing styles in showing network schematics. This topic is for showcase of these works.
ETA: New and improved version. This time the Sendinghattan orange link was made with superposing pieces (the right-hand connector is CPICrr)
- On this map, pink = future features and orange = tramway. It is NOT by any factor proportional.
For example, Flunningpool is actually not that far from Wennley tram station.

I found the orange symbols on Commons (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Categ ... set_orange), they are from ru:wiki. There is in fact no "CPICle orange" symbol, a bit of screenshot editing magic was involved.
A (not entirely complete) catalog is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia: ... m_template (I just noticed about the possibility to put stuff on both sides, but the diagonal connection techniques are VERY poorly documented).

My screen shot thread ---> Have a look
Looks like it. It lacks several artefacts that names have. For my part, this is the final version of the map in my first post (actual editing was required for Marthwyth/Kensall Green, as well as the arrow near Nindhattan). I decided to strip out secondary features. I could have gotten away with ripping out the one-way track from Drenninghead to Chetston (Woods) and adding a Signal Box between Mumble Hill Jct and Gudworth, but I liked the challenge . With this I have connected all the cities on the map and will likely forego playing it anymore, as I am not all that good at making large network actually function (also, way too much trees nowadays )beeb375 wrote:Haha, oddly enough, a small bit of it was edited in Photoshop! I forgot to write the name on one of the stations, so I got a pen-ish texture and wrote it in on the computer, Badnor End was the station I think. Also moved some lines to make them more neat, I think it's an awesome result XD

Very nice ideaHypolite wrote:Neat !
Great idea to use Wikipedia icons for transport line representation !
There even is a software mentioned on the Wikipedia:Route diagram template page, called Spoorstrip.

And here is the metro network from the same area. It doesn't go as far as the refineries though.

Any chance of pm me the spoorstrip software? I sent a mail to the gmail address mentioned on the wiki, but so far, I have not received anything back.

I edit a wikipedia page and hit "Show preview", take a screenshot and cut it down to the apropriate size. Don't save the pages though when you're not using the page that was specially designed for it, people will not like you.BTA90 wrote:One question about that program, Spoorstrip, when you made a file like you did, how can you make it into a png-file like yours?
