Troubles & Questions / [Question] 3D Skyplot
January 14, 2012, 10:47:13
I'm wondering about the globe in 3D Skyplot.

Is it suppose to be a blank white globe or a textured real globe?

Mine is a blank white globe.
Locus rotating those distance numbers (on Distance rings, Line to GPS~~~). It is difficult to read when those number are upside down.
I think it is better to fix the number display position according to screen orientation.
Declined / Using offline+online maps together

I'm sorry if this had been talk about before.

I mainly using Offline Maps(personal) from Google Maps.
But many time it can be inconvenience to switch between Online and Personal when some parts of the maps are not covered in the offline files.

I think it would be nice if the Online and Personal maps can work together.
If the tiles exist in offline files Locus use the offline data, if the tiles are not exist in offline files Locus will look in Online file, and if the tiles are not exist in Online file too Locus will download those tiles and store in Online file.
Implemented / Remember last category icon file

Remember last category icon file used. (If the icon file is missing, just go back to default Locus icons)
Or setting to set default icon file.

Now, if the icon file is missing, Locus will "keep" telling me that "File.... , Didn't find it."
Implemented / Double taps to zoom

From Google Map
- Double taps to zoom in (to where you tap).
- Two fingers tap to zoom out.

Setting to change your position icon(the green circle)
- size
- shape
- or a compass arrow (Google Map)
I dunno if this is bug or because the cache file is too big.

As I try to download maps for many parts of the world my Google_Classic file is getting larger (500MB+).
Now I starting to have some problem in Online map + Online shared map I downloaded.
Sometime the map does not load sometime it partly load sometime it dont seem to use the cache at all (alway take long time to load tiles from internet).
And if I tick "Offline mode"  in setting, sometime the whole map did not show up at all.

I try to copy Google_Classic from online map to offline map folder and add .sqlitedb to make it become offline map.
After running Locus again it took quite a while to initialize probaly because the map file is large.
But I was surprise!!!
The map works as offline map very very well, it fast!!, I dont even see the "loading" tiles at all, and no problem of tiles not showing anymore(unlike viewing it in online mode)

Is it possible to make Online Shared Map work smoothly, fast and without problem just like it is offline map ?
