Discussion/New features / Re: Mapsforge 0.5
« on: December 05, 2014, 22:50:42 »
Modified code is available for everybody who wants. Anyway whole code is highly modified for Locus purpose. Because of this, I'll never be able to use official distribution.
OK, my thought was if your improvements would be added, it would be usable for you too and easier to update.

Mapsforge is pretty active these days and there are already plans for 0.6:!topic/mapsforge-dev/qgVmqSXiwKM
Performance is very high on the list, so maybe you could share there what you did for speed up.

Only in case, new version will bring more advanced features, I'll have to spend a few days and add improvements from Locus to new modified version.

Here's the changelog:
The biggest changes in 0.4 for end users would be:
- Support for device screen scaling (maps tiles have different sizes according to device dpi)
- Support for SVG files as map icons (what Locus already had)

About themes - I think, it should be a lot easier, to give me a list of tags that do not work in new Locus and are included in v 0.5, and I'll try to add support also for them to Locus.

That's one major change of 0.5, and it would be great if it would be compatible. Creating different theme versions could be a major headache, it's already a minor ;-)

Everthing below Rendertheme Version 4 is new:
priority and display (force-draw?) are already in Locus, but I'm not sure if it has the same values and function.
There are smaller underlying changes too, e.g. dy works now for symbols/captions on ways too.

Best regards,

Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.4.X+ (updated 7.11.2014)

At the moment I don´t know how I can test it.
The OpenAndroMaps are rendered with Mapsforge version 3 as I know. And it´s strange, that only two zoom levels are not working with  very few tiles.

The newest maps are using a new snapshot, which improves map writing speed and solves problems with huge polygons. See here:
Best regards,

It would be great for compatibility reasons. With 0.4 not that much has changed for render themes, but that will be the case for 0.5 which is RC now. It won't be possible to provide all features for Locus then with my Openandromaps themes.

And there are already problems with Locus and maps with mapwriter 0.5, which has major improvements and is used on Openandromaps now.

If mapsforge 0.5 is still slower, it would be nice if your enhancements would be added to the official version, it's LGPL after all.

Best regards,

SimplyHike is made for mapsforge 0.3 which is compatible to Locus as it's the same basis. So converting it is easy - just delete all but one xml-file (the one you want to use) from the theme folder, as Locus only allows one xml per folder. If you want to use several xml files, copy the whole theme folder and rename it, and delete again all but one xml file.
Tiramisu 2.0 Beta is made for Oruxmaps Beta which uses mapsforge 0.4, and maybe Maki has used some stuff which Locus doesn't support. At least the tile resolution is 4 times as much, so it would look different. So you can try the same as for SimplyHike written above, and see how it works.

Anyone developing andromaps is here?
It's OK for me as long as you stick to the license, it's contained in all xml files as well as here: (all other current openandromaps themes have this license as well as they are based now on Elevate)
