I didn't look up here for a couple of week but i tought, that someone would catch that problem..
There are two probs due to new file management which causes a little unconvenience ;)
1st : tab selection of "map space" called "visible tabs":
Every time I want to deselect an unneccesary tab the selector disappears and must be newly called.
2nd: Changing a Theme/style causes the lost of the card, the proggie locates the 1st map in listed directory.

- I do use mapsforge vector maps only
- I do not use locus' preferred dir but a dir of my own, it's not included in own maps but in vector maps

For my 1st map in this dir is FaroerIslands Locus chooses FaroerIslands every time I change the theme

Can you please add a screenshot?
So users can see what they will get.
Aren't there ..1,2,3..4,5..?

BIg Icons? Some should be very big, like shelters for example.
Galaxy Note I do not know, hmm..
As written in the header text, developed with Genymotion and tested with Defy.
The symbols are much smaller there.
I remember that sizes differed between some Android Version, esp. pngs between Locus and Orux, so I minimized some pngs.
But those like in your pic are svgs, so the scalar function may vary quite extremly.
I also remember great differences between Orux and Locus on scaling dash arrays.

Ok, it seems I've took the wrong DPI parms in my emulation windows :(
but I never testet in M√ľnster for I don't need any GPS there.. ;)

Genymotion's Defy Emu, Defy with Locus, Defy with Orux

Somewhere in future I'll try to change..
but please keep in mind..for best results (incl. rendering time) you will need a special theme for every map and every app and nearly every zoomlevel

Themes - Vector maps / Vmap

Some weeks ago while thinking on a map style of may own ( I used Openandromaps but I didn't like it's colours :( ) a friendly guy pointed me to locus for the possibility of using svgs in mapthemes.
I found V-scale, had a closer look at it and started..while getting more and more familiar to Freizeitkarte at the same time.

So I tried to create a theme/style that works with all maps, Locus, Openandro, Sebbos, mapsforge itsself and last but not least Freizeitkarte, too.
OT on
From my point of view, Freizeitkarte walks on a completely wrong way. But it's still 1st choice for bicyle way's.
OT off

The main templates for my theme/style were the openandro themes, so I copied the non physical routes nearly 1:1.
Declared aim was the best possible visiability of ways on and off the roads under certain circumstances on standard android devices (not high end).

light, MTBSKI, HC

pistes within MTBSKI

bicycle ways supported by Freizeitkarte

Vmap for Locus

When developing some mapstyles of my own I switched through maps and zoomlevels very often and very intensivly, in several cases I got double results, in few cases also triple ;)
With actual version it seems to be quite better but it's still there:

First of all automatic map switching must be activated, for same type of map of course.
Next a map of a relatively small area must be selected, in my examples it's Northrhine-Westfalia in Germany.
You are viewing for ex. at level 15. If you'll switch now to a quite lower level so the actual map cannot cover the whole area and there is a map in app's map directory covering the whole area the app will fetch it.
And now you can wait until the new map is loaded completely, or you can zoom in the map without waiting for load completed.
Depending on the way of switching the app shows more than one map and switches the map name or not.

switching fast to level 8 or 9 and back

Same switch, another area, with added elevation lines

same area, another map, map name doesn't switch

but this map was added

same maps, same switch, another area

two further maps were added

Sometimes when the maps name switches also and you switch one area back toa lower zoom level you got silly mismatch, in this case from Level 15 to 9, back to 15 and then to 14.
