Title: New style: FzOAM
Post by: KillerBG on June 27, 2020, 17:44:03
Hello, fellow walkers, runners, bikers, hikers and mountaineers!

While searching for the best map and theme source I've found two great projects:
1. OpenAndroMaps is already a huge one, with well tuned maps and many themes (Thank You!).
Unfortunately in my opinion, none of them was easy to read and/or detailed enough.
2. Freizeitkarte on the other hand isn't that widespread, but is an impressive project (Thank You!).
It is far more detailed and has really good themes.
The only major flaw was that the theme details appear too late when zooming.

I wasn't brave enough to tune the zoom level for every detail,
but tried adding the useful landscape details to the feature rich Elements theme for OAM.
Most of the textures are directly borrowed or heavily inspired of FZK.
The documents and key file are slightly tuned accordingly.
I am providing the result if anyone finds it useful.
I don't have the time and talent to support and develop the new theme.
If someone decides to adopt it, I will be very happy!
Until then I hope You enjoy it.

Happy journeying everyone!

Your theme looks very good.
I was waiting for theme that is nearer on the freizeitkarte theme for a long time.
I will use it for hiking and cycling on my future trips.

Wow, great contrast. I will use it on our hike tomorrow and report afterwards.

Interesting, always wanted a more friendly green in an OSM like theme. Will test.

Can you offer a Multi view like Voluntary UK has? Ie, it would include  hiking, cycling and mountainbiking at the same time. In hiking, I sometimes avoid mountainbike routes, so it's helpful to see them.

Thank you again Killer BG. After three full days of hiking I never switched back. And after one day my wife asked me to install your theme on her motorola one also.
We both love the contrast on sunny days and the more pronounced differences between say woods, heath and farmland.

I have checked FzAOM theme in LocusMap v4 beta and it is listed among available themes for Mapsforge V4 compatible maps only( OpenAndroMaps (https://www.openandromaps.org/) ), not for V3 maps ( LoMaps ). Themes for V3 andV4 maps are not compatible, authors have to make v3 and v4 versions.

So to use this theme, it seems you have to get some V4 maps.

Thanks once more KillerBG. After three weeks in Gran Paradiso with a lot of sunlight, your theme is definitely going to stay with us. First choice!!!
