This bundle is blatantly based on the work of others, and the name pays homage to the Volatile set of themes. The colours of the roads are tuned to UK Ordnance Survey conventions. Hiking and cycling routes are shown by simple coloured blobs (green and blue respectively) along the roads and paths involved (if the map supports it, like OpenAndroMaps or the vector maps from Locus Store).
The zip file includes a basic key to roads and paths and a changelog.
There are quite a few other tweaks, (such as changed order of some rendering; changed patterns for allotments, orchards, nature reserves, private access roads; semi transparent woodlands and other areas; changed rendering for canal locks) which I failed to document as I was going along.
From time to time I will update these themes (and reset the download count).
The latest version is always in this post.

Hello John
First thank you for your theme

I struggled little bit with non clear description of files and mess in folder structure.
There is a bunch of types files and folders.
.

I suggest, to create a "all in one" solution because i expected a single "Voluntary UK theme".
A possible solution?

greetings
 gynta

Ah - reading whole thread helps a little bit now :) but please care about new users.

Fair cop, guvnor.
I've rewritten the original post to provide what is hopefully a better explanation.
Clearer now?

Improved rendering of cliffs, ridges, dams, quarries, shingle, hiking, bike and MTB trails; fixed sandbanks in rivers.
Improved distinction between cycle track and cycle lanes and improved their visibility.
Updated key.
All in first post.

Hello, I downloaded your last version and it produces the error you can see in the attached screenshot.
I'm using Locus Pro version 3.18.6 and it doesn't matter if I use Lomaps or Openandromaps, both look the same.
Thank you in advance for looking into it.

Well spotted. There was a file missing from the zip. I've now corrected that so try again.
Many apologies.

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.

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.
