Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
« on: February 26, 2018, 16:56:00 »
Multilingual (Mapsforge v4) maps from OpenAndroMaps can now be displayed with the included Voluntary Mapsforge theme, which is only offered as an option when a Mapsforge v4 map has been selected. Voluntary Mapsforge is as similar to Voluntary UK as possible.
Other changes:
- Addition of switchable tracks in City and Roads styles
- "Blue" icons darkened to improve visibility
- Buildings under construction shown in latest OAMmaps
- Cable cars now hang downwards in Voluntary Mapsforge and Cruiser/Orux version
- Velocity colours revised (track/residential/runway/military etc)
- Voluntary UK national/international cycle routes set to red labels (as UK signage)
- Rendering order and style of roads under construction changed
- Alignment of passes; abandoned and active mine and military bunker now shown on OAMaps.
- Peaks appear at zoom levels according to their local prominence on OAMaps.
- Bridges align for cycle tracks on OAMaps.
- Race track bridges, tunnels shown.
- Paths etc slimmed slightly

Latest version in first post in this thread.

Themes - Vector maps / [Theme] OS Style

Just for fun, I've produced a theme that mimics the UK Ordnance Survey styles as far as possible. It's available for free download here.

The world maps (which come from OAM) that have a transparent top layer have a -tr- in the name. This one doesn't.

It is possible to install both LoMaps and OAMaps of the same area, and use the LoMaps offline address search while displaying the OAM maps. Offline address search allows you to select the file to search (at the top of screen).

Have you tried OAM V3 maps?
I suggest you ask on the OAM forum. If this is a bug, Christian is likely to seek to correct it.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Problem to show maps together
« on: January 06, 2018, 14:32:23 »
I think the menu command is:
Menu : Settings : Maps : Offline maps : LoMaps and other Vector maps

The illustrations below show LoMaps England and Wales with and without this setting selected and the relevant settings page.

Troubles & Questions / Backup and restore worked
« on: December 27, 2017, 15:47:07 »
For some reason Locus Pro disappeared from my phone today. Just went.
I reinstalled from the Play Store but all my settings were gone. So, I found the latest automatic backup and did a restore and now all is well!

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Tiramis├╣ 3 Locus Edition +
« on: November 28, 2017, 20:24:53 »
I installed Tiramisu 3 LE theme but it does not display all hiking trails in LoMaps.

I compared several map themes and here are the results.

Shows all hiking trails?
Hike & Bike = Yes
Tiramisu 3 LE = No
Elevate LE = No
HiLo = Yes
Voluntary UK = Yes


Full-size image
Voluntary is designed to work with both LoMaps and OAMaps. I know Elevate is only designed to work with OAMaps. I suspect you may find the missing trails if you try OpenAndroMaps with such themes.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
« on: September 29, 2017, 16:08:55 »
Voluntary theme has been updated. The new version is available in the first post, or through Locus Store in the app.
http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=2915.msg19296#msg19296
The main enhancements are:
- Option to show "difficult" paths in LoMaps and maps from OpenAndroMaps
- Names for archipelagos, islands and islets in latest maps from OpenAndroMaps (from 1 Oct 2017)
- Minor but important changes in the order of rendering of one-way streets, route overlays, railways, aeroways, ferries and bridges; white underlay for paths on bridges; revised border rendering.

Nice to have map themes now included.
For me, it would be nicer to have map styles as well as themes included.
Because each preset can have own independent set of settings I imagine could cause user confusion. Seems user will generally need to have settings identical in each preset (for example I am testing with 3 presets Cycling/ Driving/ Default). There is not going to be large number of settings to choose from so could the initial choosing of set of settings be removed - each preset just has all possible settings? User simply decides on the value of each setting.
That change would need a three-position switch (on | off | no change) for each setting which is what the present arrangement achieves.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
« on: January 26, 2017, 14:51:42 »
I've adjusted the styles for the theme so that Cycle, Hiking, City and Road styles function almost as presets with a limited range of tailored options, while Multi and Yellow have a fuller (but manageable) range of options. Locus remembers the settings of the overlays for each style (Neat, Menion!).
The key (same link as post above: http://bit.ly/volkeybeta ) has also been updated.
Voluntary Cruiser is included here for completeness but is not intended for use with the Locus app.
This is still beta, but almost ready for release.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
« on: January 16, 2017, 23:10:03 »
I've reworked the Voluntary theme significantly to take advantage of selectable overlays in themes. Display of hiking, cycle and mountain bike routes can now be switched on or off, as can highlighting for each of them. I've limited the number of options shown to aid ease of use. As far as possible this works for both LoMaps from Locus Store and maps from OpenAndroMaps.
There are other improvements, including embankments and dykes and cycle tracks and lanes on OpenAndroMaps and a Yellow version to help when using overlays such as Strava (see http://www.locusmap.eu/strava-heatmap-in-locus-why-not/).
I have also provided a slightly more limited version for Cruiser and Orux. The "bugfix" version has been retired.
As this is the first release with these features, please treat this as a beta and let me have your comments, please. Once I'm sure it is working well, I'll upload it to the first post as usual.
