Troubles & Questions / Re: Green dashed lines around tiles
« on: April 22, 2018, 19:07:04 »
The dashed green lines indicate a national park or nature reserve and are an artefact from the particular theme you are using on a vector map. In your case, nature reserves and national parks are marked by a dashed green line around the boundary of the nature reserve/national park. Unfortunately this also produces a dashed green line around the map tiles.
If these lines bother you, I think you can turn off national parks/nature reserves in the Elevate Theme (available on the OpenAndroidMaps site), or you can use the Voluntary theme (free from Locus Store) which has been optimised to avoid this artefact.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Non existing roads on World map
« on: April 18, 2018, 23:16:42 »
... 1. You can use a different world base map by
a) Download and install an non-transparent world map for Locus from OAM: https://www.openandromaps.org/en/downloads/general-maps - for either zoom levels 1-8 or 1-9. (The transparent version is no longer needed or wanted for Locus.) Follow the instructions carefully as these are not vector maps and go in a different folder from standard vector maps from OAM.
b) Go to Locus: Settings > Maps > Offline Maps > General World Map  and select the map you have just downloaded...

Thanks, this works quite well, although I prefer the behaviour of World map from Locus store, because I don't have to switch manually to more detailed map when I zoom in (Locus do it automatically  for me).
If you follow the instructions above carefully, then when you are using vector maps the world map should appear automatically at zoom 8 or 9 and below, depending which world map you selected, and show the detailed vector map at higher zooms -- exactly like the behaviour with the Locus world map. The only difference is that it also appears in the list of maps (though I now wonder if renaming it to _world would hide it).

I have had a problem with Back not working in the Store in the recent past, and again today. FWIW, a quick double click on the Back button seems to do the trick. And no, I can't reproduce it to order.

"World Base Map" is installed automatically by Locus to speed up the display for low zooms when using a vector map. It appears for zoom level 8 and below. The current version (version 3) has the error reported in the original post.

1. You can use a different world base map by
a) Download and install an non-transparent world map for Locus from OAM: https://www.openandromaps.org/en/downloads/general-maps - for either zoom levels 1-8 or 1-9. (The transparent version is no longer needed or wanted for Locus.) Follow the instructions carefully as these are not vector maps and go in a different folder from standard vector maps from OAM.
b) Go to Locus: Settings > Maps > Offline Maps > General World Map  and select the map you have just downloaded. Note that if you select "Disabled" it disables this additional feature and reverts to default behaviour and the Locus World Map is used for zoom level 8 and below (if present).

2. If you don't want to use either the Locus Map or a different world map you have to physically remove the Locus World Base Map. I don't recommend this as the vector maps which will be used instead can be very slow at low zooms. However, you can do this in Locus Store, though it is not obvious. Find World Base Map by searching for it. Because the world map was not installed through the Store you may see a blue button that says "Download" - tap this to download the map again and register it with the Store.  Now the blue button says "Remove" and you can tap it to remove the map.

For me (MotoG), the onscreen keyboard covers the Cancel/Save buttons, and all that is required is to dismiss the keyboard before tapping Save or Cancel.
Three stages illustrated below.

I donĀ“t like the Star Wars startscreen. Whats the link between Star Wars and Locus?
How can it be switched off?

1. I didn't really expect the Star Wars initialisation screen to make it into the final version. I think you might come up with something else.
2. Problem of losing permissions for backup directory on external SD remains, though the initial "/" has disappeared.

Two problems in the latest beta:


Just the wording. The error isn't unknown, it is no internet.


I got stuck in an endless loop here. I had just downloaded the bike navigation cursors from the Store. Both the Locus back arrow and the phone back button took me back one screen, but Locus then reloaded the displayed page. This has now happened to me twice when visiting the Store. This time a quick double tap on the back button worked.

And finally, lock up at ZL9 world map continues to bug me.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] OS Style

Hello,

there seems to be an instance of dependency from your voluntary theme. telephone_emergency.svg targets the ../vol_res folder and not /ossymbols. People who don't have voluntary installed will run into trouble that way.

Regards
O dear, I obviously haven't checked it well enough. Now corrected and uploaded.

@menion Dropbox link sent. There was no red toaster this time, but permission for the backup directory on external SD is lost on reboot (always). I set the backup directory to external SD, restarted Locus, checked backup directory is set OK, exit Locus, restart phone, start Locus, check whether backup directory is set, see directory name is in red, tap on that, am offered permission screen for the directory on external SD I set before, press OK, repeat etc.

Oki, I'll modify this to next version, so backup action will be delayed for additional five minutes and we will see if it helps.
If you did that for the current beta 3.29.2.8, it hasn't helped, I'm afraid.

Interesting. Maybe some bug in your motorola. Are you using some custom ROM?
I noticed same problem earlier from one user and if I remember correctly, we were not able to solve it.
How quickly after reboot this problem appear? Locus should check backups one minute after reboot is done, is it correct?
I'm using standard ROM. I don't get a toaster message every time but I think the backup directory fails the test every boot. All the other custom directories are on external SD card and are OK.
After a minute - that's about right, timewise but it does seem very soon after boot. My SD card is probably still initialising then.

New update available in the first post in this thread.
Cleared up a few bugs (spurious stations on light rail tracks, rail station symbols appearing multiple times). Simplified underground waterways by not showing underground pipelines, streams, drains and ditches but only rivers and canals in tunnels.
Improved depiction of tunnels of all sorts.
