I use (Cadence) OrCAD Capture and Layout.
The last picture with all the yellow lines is one showing a screen in Layout after I have placed about 50% of the parts on a virtual board, and the yellow lines are the individual nets. They call that mess a "ratsnest" because at that point its what it looks like.
It's before any routing of the traces is done, each one of those yellow lines I had to route to each pin.
I hope that makes sense. :)

Here's a pic of my prototype that is working great.

What board layout/design software did you use? And what's the purpose of the diagram in the last picture (with all the yellow lines that look maybe like nodes)?
