I've used the following to get a few different line types. However, I'd be interested to hear from someone with expertise in creating line types that are "maximally distinguishable" by human eyes.

ltys = c("22", "44", "13", "1343", "73", "2262", "12223242", "F282", "F4448444", "224282F2", "F1")

Best wishes

Richard.
