That's great. Could you also please try the latest modded theme, in my previous post: https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=2915.msg55516#msg55516

Yes, perfect now.

Since priorities seem to work, now I can create a fork again with some hiking related changes (benches, huts etc. at lower ZL, more prio to them)...

Finally I probably stop using v3 maps at all.

On the latest iteration of the Voluntary theme, mountain huts are indicated from zoom 13 on the hike style, with detailed icons from zoom 15.

Ah, I was wondering if maybe there's some specific priorities in the different styles. I was using Allround, because I want to see biking/mountain biking routes. In order to avoid them, haha... 😂

While map is painted, it is darker but then always is overlayed by brighter green. VolUk was darker before. Intended?

@tapio
I've not implemented priorities with any consistency, certainly not different priorities for items according to the active style. I don't want to increase the size of the theme excessively and need to think about whether there are certain key items I should prioritise for different styles. I'm not sure if MF v5, which allows variables in themes, might help.
Forests are intentionally lighter (paler, whiter) than before to give better contrast to paths and tracks through them. As far as I can see, the transitions as you change zoom on MF v4+ are entirely due to Locus's attempt to implement a fade between zooms. With a MF v3 map and the equivalent theme, the fade happens without this effect.

Oh sorry, I thought about if you could misunderstand my writing about the different sections. I didn't mean "priorities" in the technical xml sense, but in a general language sense. I meant that I was just wondering about general priorities in sections, i.e. the Hiking section shows hiking related POI sooner, Bicycle section shows no hiking route dots etc.

I think I like the brighter forest style, will see it "in the wilds" today :D

Updated in the first post for Locus 3.38+ (new rendering engine).

Note if you have installed any of the interim versions of this theme, please uninstall and delete them by means of a long press in the Locus theme selector.

The download in the first post has been updated with a minor bugfix to properly display hiking nodes in countries where they are used.
In this version of the theme, dotted and dashed lines now scale properly for Mapsforge maps, as they always did for LoMaps, thanks to Locus implementing parts of Mapsforge v5.

Hello John, thank you again. SInce the text about "hiking nodes"trigggered me, I dowloaded it right away. Allthough the nodes showed mostly perfect until now.
The Locus store was still on 190219, too hasty, so I took the zipped files.
Alas, no more hiking nodes anymore. See screenshot. Luckily I could go back to the 190219 version through the Locus store and the nodes came back in view.

John, sometimes Locus displays your theme bright, sometimes darker, which I like more. I guess it is about painting order. Seen that?
Edit, ah I see I already mentioned it here 😊

@Henk van der Spek
Could you try downloading the latest OAM map, please? There was a bug in the previous maps which made it impossible to differentiate correctly between hiking and cycling nodes. I hope this is now sorted, but if not I will look at it again.
Edit: I can confirm that this works with the latest OAM maps. I have however identified another bug in that hiking node numbers appear in all styles. Watch for a theme update shortly to correct this.

@tapio
I think this is due to multiple layers overlapping. In an attempt to convey as much of the information as possible, most land cover layers are semi transparent, so for example woodland in a park is greener than woodland in open country. In the screenshot, the woodland in the bottom left area is in a country park and that in the top right is not.
