Title: [Theme] TOTM Mapsforge (for V4 and higher)
Post by: Magellan on June 16, 2019, 18:59:41
Tiramisù as OpenTopoMap
(http://www.picshare.ru/uploads/190616/49p2hhDkMb.png) (http://www.picshare.ru/view/10094417/)

for the topography, and exploration on the maps

only for V4 maps!

For V3 (lomaps and other)  TOTM 1.9.2 - > https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=6027.0 (https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=6027.0)

in the future it will be slightly improved:
on my smartphone 282 ppi, 320 dpi

It also works well on Oruxmap, Cruiser, and most likely in other mapsforge-compatible programs
(tested in Oruxmaps 7.4.22, Cruiser 1.7)

Very clear and nice contrast and fast, thank you. I will try it out in the field later.
I do not see any existing trails and path and hike or bike routes. Is that intentional?

Yes, this theme intentionally does not contain trails, paths and routes. But for highway=path|footpath there are differences in coloring, according to sac_scale. "Bad" highway=track (tracktype=grade 3|grade 4|grade 5) is marked with a red dotted line.

Magellan - I must be blind - I can't see any link to the V4 theme?

thanks - of course! (would be more intuitive if disabled rather than hidden if not logged in)

I love to use this map for planning. It is good as it is now. I use it with no magnification on my Sony Z1 which has hd res. The v3 version had too thin lines for me, but now it's perfect.

There's 2 bugs in the xml missing space character after s_power.png path in the xml, see Locus verify functionality on longtap theme.

I've decided to mainly stay with the Maiwolf (Bernard) desert V4 theme because it makes a distinction between sealed & unsealed roads.

Updated version 2.1 in the first post, please update. Unpack with overwrite.
Improved: streams, rivers, embankments, railways and more. Added traffic lights.  (84 changes)

Thanks for this renderer. the paved vs. unpaved ways  (highway=track; tracktype=2+3 and tracktype=4+5) should be a bit more differentiated. And lines are a bit too thin for outdoor use.

I just discovered it. I will keep with v3 maps the next future, because of my many, many graphical maps which are unusable with new graphic enginge of Locus 3.38, which made me cancel the automatic updates the first time and I will stay with 3.37 (and therefore, v3 maps).

Hello Magellan,

thank you very much for this nice theme. I like it very much.
Is there a way to see the contour lines in 10 m gaps like it is in Open Topo Map?

Greetings

Jochen

Hello, Jochen

For this, the maps must contain within themselves such data of contour lines (10 m). OAM, lomaps contain only contour lines of 20 m.

The way out of this situation is to completely make such maps or a map containing only the contours of the heights, the required frequency and overlay it with the corresponding theme.

But, again - do it yourself.

Well, or ask map manufacturers to make contour lines of heights more often.

Some of the OAM maps have 10m interval contours.
Examples: UK_Scotland, UK_Wales, UK_LakeDistrict, Ireland.
I don't know of others but you can search the OAM download page and ask on the OAM forum.

Are the download links for this version and the mapsforge V3 version still up? Maybe I'm just blind but I can't seem to find the link in the original post.

You need to be signed in.

It drove me mad, until I finally figured it out.
