I've updated the Voluntary theme to scale better on zooming and on higher resolution screens. I've remade almost all the icons and patterns, and made most of the icons appear at higher zooms to avoid Locus failing to render some tiles in cities and towns.The key in pdf format is outdated, but still of some use.

This version is still in trial, so let me know how it works for you.
Upload the zipfile, expand it and copy the contents to the Locus mapsVector folder.

Latest versions in the first post. The Locus version is now fully scalable for different resolutions, and scales on zoom, with totally redrawn symbol set. Atlas version is designed for Emux's Atlas but has not been updated this time round.
This theme is intended to work well outdoors, and so has high colour contrast.

Looks great to me!



Only one issue, house numbers appear at very high zoom only.

Hi Kona,

you can try to change edit the xml file of  Voluntary UK xml
Try to find the line with
<rule e="any" k="addr:housenumber" v="*" zoom-min="21">
and change zoom-min value p. e to "19" or any other value,

If you can´t figure it out, please wait for John.
Regards J.

Seems '18' gives me on my HD screen what I need.
So I can play on both of your themes guys now a little bit as I found some fonts are to small in HD, and some labels to big, I know it's matter of needs, so custom work needs be applied here. ;)

Both themes are fantastic!

Cheers.

There are new versions in the first post, and house numbers now appear at zoom=19.
The biggest change is that the themes make use of tags on maps from OpenAndroMaps that indicate access by bike or on foot. Tracks now have access indicated down the centre where this is mapped (blue=bike, orange=foot, green=bike and foot). Hike and bike networks are indicated similarly on roads, as well as by large blobs.
Colours are derived from UK Ordnance Survey, if you wondered.
Getting correct font sizes and zoom levels at which symbols and captions appear is not easy, depending on screen resolution and density of mapping in your chosen area. Voluntary UK dp on Locus makes a valiant attempt to scale appropriately for your display.
PS. Uploaded revised version of Voluntary Atlas due to bug in turning circle code.
PPS Added updated key to this post.

Fantastic!  I now don't need a magnifying glass to see the street names.  Incidentally, this is on my new Huawei G620S phone.

Happy, happy, happy.

New versions in the first post now include a fully scalable Locus theme using svgs.
I’ve updated all files, made all pngs much smaller and ensured the svgs display correctly on Locus, Atlas and Cruiser.
As a bonus there are Euro and Dollar versions of the bank, atm and toll symbols included in the folders (Locus and Atlas svg only) that you can rename and slot in if you wish.

And thanks, MagratC!

Bugfix release in the first post.
Map display adjusted so that residential roads do not appear until higher zooms in order to speed redrawing in cities with loads of mapping data.

A few minor changes, mainly due to bugs. Latest version in the first post.

I believe I have found some bug, seems like deciduous wood tiles overlapping coniferous. In that area other themes show coniferous forest only and I think there is no deciduous trees at all if I remember as in Grand Canaria is only/mainly Pinus Canariensis (Canarian Pine) with huge pine cones. ;)

Also I really like red bold train stations dots, at let's say, middle zoom in heavily populated areas. (Railway and Tube).

Well spotted, Kona! Fixed and uploaded to the first post.
I've actually toned down the red circles for railway stations - they were a bit much.
