LocusUser#1 asks on his German language thread for any opinions, suggestions, error reports so here we go.

Personally I really like it, good hiking theme, nice colour pallete.
- Works and looks perfect on my high resolution screen (galaxy S5 1920 × 1080).
- So far I can report no water reservoirs rendered at all military areas.
- Bus stop icon is tricky when you browse not German speaking countries, specially if you do not know the meaning of 'H' ;)
- Restaurants, shops would be good to add also

Well done!

Very nice, perfect for hiking. Only those bodies of water are unnecessarily large.

Thank you for your feed back.

@Kona
-water reservoirs rendered at all military areas are working in next version  :)

-may be in one of the next versions  ::)

@Jirkous
-bodies of water are unnecessarily large, this is solved in next version.  :)

It would not even increase the symbol lookout? In larger scales is not seen at all. I attach images of two seats.

Thank you for the nice theme "HiLo". It looks very good!
The updated theme from 17.02.2016 has only the problem, that the Far-Hiking-routes are not transparent (you can see the kind of way only on extrem zoom levels).

Thanks for the feedback, in the next version, the Towers are displayed on zoom 14. There is also a new symbol of which is similar them from Outdooractive.

It may also be that the symbols to displace each other when they are close together, this is a problem in Mapsforge maps.

You are right, not all are transparent, but i have yesterday work on it so now all Hiking routes in all Maps and all Zoom level are transparent. So please wait for next Version.

Personally I like kind of graphical bus icon as you did for trains, which for bus stop might be blue.
But seeing this theme on original German website it makes sense keeping H icon as it works good over there in terms of colour pallete.

Like it!

Hello lor74cas,
this is not a problem in locus, this is a problem in the HiLo theme.

But you're right, the colors are too similar, so I have the line style of the country border lines completely changed.

This changes comes with next update of the HiLo theme, not with next update of locus.

It would be possible to supplement the display theme HiLo bike? I only see hiking trails, bike trails but did not. See. attached files for comparison with the internal issue of Locus.

Bylo by možné do tématu HiLo doplnit zobrazení cyklotras? Zobrazují se mi pouze turistické trasy, ale cyklotrasy ne. Viz. přiložené soubory pro srovnání s interním tématem Locusu.

Hello everybody,

the OpenAndroMaps include since the end of August the OSMC:Symbol tags. The trails symbols can now be displayed even with the OpenandroMaps. : D

I added a beta version of HiLo Theme which now displays in LoMaps and OpenAndroMaps symbols.

Hi,
I have downloaded this nice theme.
Unfortunately the theme is not selecteble with openandromaps.
when I switch to LM map the theme is selectable.

Is it possible to choose the theme, when I have switched to openandromap in lucus maps?

It is not exact.
It IS selectable with OAM, but only with V3 map versions.
With V4-ML , only elevate/elements and Voluntary MapsForge/Velocity is selectable.(at least from those external  themes I have)

Hello,
At the moment it is best to use maps V3 within Locus. LoMaps are always V3, OAM you can download as V3 or V4 (called Multilanguage).
I already have the HiLo theme running on the smartphone as a V4 compatible version, but as long as Locus still displays the maps of the V4 incorrectly it makes no sense to publish this version of the HiLo theme.
The new future name of the theme will be "active RT", as this theme will no longer work only for Locus but will support the Mapsforge V4 maps in all apps.

PS:
In the meantime, the Locus Store has the V11 of HiLo for download.  :)

Hi Everybody,

HiLo is my favorite theme for LoMaps. However, lately I had an issue with a tunnel that was not shown on the map:

(https://i.postimg.cc/QVKZN6yz/Screenshot-20190418-203116.png) (https://postimg.cc/QVKZN6yz)

If I use the Locus internal theme (or OAM maps) everything is fine:
(https://i.postimg.cc/HJ04tCnN/Screenshot-20190418-203156.png) (https://postimg.cc/HJ04tCnN)

Tagging in OSM seems to be fine as well (highway=track, tunnel=yes, layer=-1 )  OSM  (https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/47.74982/12.90544)
I tried some things in the <!-- highway tunnel casings --> section of the theme.xml without any success.

Maybe someone could give me a hint what to change?

Best wishes,

Gunnar
Title: Re: [Theme] HiLo hiking theme
Post by: LocusUser#1 on April 22, 2019, 19:45:14
I spent a few hours now understanding why the tunnel is not displayed on LoMaps, OpenAndroMaps displays the tunnel correctly. At the moment I have come to the conclusion that Locus here at LoMaps internally works differently than with OpenAndroMaps maps. Something is handled differently here, very annoying for Theme creator.
At the moment I can only advise you about OpenAndroMaps maps, my theme supports them better than LoMaps. The future lies as well as in maps and theme of the V4, which then does not exist as LoMaps.
Title: Re: [Theme] HiLo hiking theme
Post by: voldapet on April 23, 2019, 08:22:05
Hi,
@LocusUser#1 - I think that the "issue" is caused due to handling of layers. The tunnel has set layer=-1 and for this reason is rendered before the forest area. I think that OAM maps apply some transformation during generation and change the layer  from -1 to 0. LoMaps preserve the layer attribute. It requires to use some workaround to display tunnels and water streams - The forest areas are semitransparent. You can try simple test - disable rendering of forest areas in Hi-Lo theme and check the missing tunnel.
Thanks, Petr
Title: Re: [Theme] HiLo hiking theme
Post by: plu-irin on April 26, 2019, 17:40:37
Hi LocusUser#1, hi Petr,

Thank you for looking into this. Obviously Petr is right; the handling of layers is different. I now use the following – not very elegant - workaround:
I changed the forest fill color from #D4DAA4 to #50d6e372. To increase visibility further, I increased the stroke width for the tunnel from 0.1 to 0.3 and changed its color from #707070 to #3f3f3f. In the screenshots below the different handling of the layers is visible. In general for me it looks more logical to preserve the layer information (LoMaps) than flattening it (OAM). However, I have to say that I don’t know enough about the reason why OAM are created in a different way.

Let’s see what the future will bring related to V4 and the Locus subscription model (I have not yet decided if I will stay with locus or change to a different app).

Best wishes,
Gunnar

@Petr
I do not understand yet how these layers affect Mapsforge, but thanks for the explanations.

@Gunnar
I had already found out that it is related to the forest, but still had no time to think of a workaround. Thank you for your workaround. I will take it over.

@All
The changes I will no longer in the HiLo theme but only in the follow-up theme "active RT", if interested can download this on Github.

Nice that the theme are still developed. Thank you LocusUser#1!
I installed it and noticed that i have to delete active RT4.xml and active RT5.xml to get the theme running in Locus. Am I wrong?
I'm very happy that the numbers of hiking ways are now displayed. Unfortunately depending on zoom level not all numbers are displayed simultaneously.

@balloni55
the active RT4 still needs some adjustments, but I'll wait and see how the new locus map core develops.

@Christian
with the current version 3.37 only a single xml file may exist in the folder, so you had to delete the other two xml files.
The active RT is already created for the next locus version which is currently in beta test, from there may finally be several theme files in one folder.

@LocusUser#1:

thanks for the github-link!
Could you please shortly state what the differences between the RT3/RT4/RT5 themes are? I first assumed the are meant for v3/v4/v5 maps, respectively, but there seem to be more optical changes between for example RT4 and RT5.
So is RT5 simply the newer one to be used in the future (with new map core?)?
Title: Re: [Theme] HiLo hiking theme
Post by: LocusUser#1 on May 02, 2019, 19:56:12
The numbers mean the used render theme version of Mapsforge, not the map version. This is separate from each other, each rendering theme version has changes to the instruction set. Unfortunately, Locus is given by the programming of the app which theme version is used in which map version.

The active RT3 Locus version works only with locus and maps of version 3 and earlier.

The active RT4 version works with all apps that use the Mapsforge Engine and that with all map versions, here is Locus unfortunately again special, there this version works only with maps of version 4 and higher.

The active RT5 version is older than the RT4 version and was only for testing which app works with version 5 rendering themes.

As it looks at the moment I will make a current active RT5 version of the current active RT4 version and then only maintain it, the active RT4 will be omitted and the active RT3 locus stay on this stand.
