Don't worry, once I find time I will have my website fully designed. Too much going on!
The making of a new Dame Alice Owen's based metro network.
Originally based on line sketches from 2005 - the original network was nuts. Separate lines were created but they were never originally connected to become a full map.
When I tried to connect the lines long after they were all done, it was completely insane.
Once the SJTA maps are done, a little mini project will be to create a new metro system for DAOS!
It won't be nearly as complex as the SJTA map - fewer lines, no circle, and will be a completely new style of design.
The SJTA map was inspired by the London Underground and the Paris Metro, the NAPEGA DAOS map will likely be inspired by the U-Bahn and S-Bahn in Berlin and the trams of Geneva.
The line names will be almost completely changed rather than copy directly from the London Underground. I'm playing round with a list but this is what is proposed so far (in alphabetical order): Awinnibelli, Brenner, Central, Eirenideane, Fung & City, Gabriel Glider, Heaselang, Kennaugh, Jacques, Parkinson, Pearce, Rushton & City.
Below are some of the line diagrams which were created digitally. Not all lines are shown as I screwed some of them up and made them pixelated and illegible when I used InkScape to remove the transparency, GRRRRRR!
