This will be my first map. The image above is a rough idea of how it will look and was just an underground map I found on the net.

Does the board think it's an idea that has potential?

Another rail map is always welcome by some and others think we already have to many. But Paris metro is already in the main foundry so why not this. Unlike Paris metro, LU has far more stations and lines so it might be wise to choose to do a certain section. Zone 1 only is the more likely suspect, but if you did the circle line with all stations in the middle of it, that would give you a more stable map. It would also be smaller and have less complications to overcome. This being your first map, that can only be a good thing.

What programme do you use?
Any help you need, just ask but have you read this? Hand book

Hello - Welcome to CC and the Foundry ;-)
Izual_Rebirth
You should find some useful information in the [Official] Conquer Club Mapmaker Handbook
If you still have questions after browsing those topics, feel free to ask any specific questions in the Foundry Discussions subforum - you should find people eager to help and give any advice in there.

Unfortunately a London Underground can't be made due to copyright. Everything that says London Underground, connections, Tube is under copyright. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it just can't be done :(

Here are couple of other attempts at it:
viewtopic.php?p=3081078#p3081078
viewtopic.php?p=2224417#p2224417

There are more, so suggest using the advanced search to read up on all problems others had in getting a much needed London Underground map!

Good luck, hope you can get this done. If not, we hope you will come up with another idea!
