I love this theme. And have a question. There is a option for change colour of the official hiking tracks?
In LoMaps with there original theme I have coloured tracks: yellow, blue, red etand when I zoom in there are names of tracks also. In Poland.

@respublikamroja Currently different colours for hiking routes is not an option in the Voluntary themes. Sorry. The names should appear however.

Hi John, there's those HSK markers all over the place, they weren't there before... Totally unimportant stuff for me, emergency points, they should display at higher zl... something you can do? Other themes I checked do not display those...

@tapio I'll change it. At what zoom level do you think (a) the symbol should show (b) the reference should show (if at all)? There are only about 2 emergency access points mapped in the whole of the UK, so it's difficult for me to tell what's best generally.

Text appears at ZL 14 (numbers according to Locus top bar). IMO there should be nothing at 14, symbol at 15 ,text at 16+
Elevate has it from 14+ as symbol, 16+ as text. But there it is configurable ("Emergency")

Hi John, I know draw order is a thing, but still. After all theme display is not reliable, only POI loading is.

E. g., here a shelter is not shown in an intermediate zoom level... what do you think, why is it happening?

@tapio Almost certainly in this case the shelter symbol is clashing with the "G" of the path reference which has a higher priority (not just display order)
and so the shelter is not shown.
Alternative approaches would be to either give the shelter a higher priority or to make it display=always. A higher priority would mean that in this case the shelter displayed but not the "G"; display=always would mean they both displayed (probably). But there would be other locations where that would not be desirable.

Updated themes with emergency access pois appearing later (Thanks, @tapio)

Also a quick beta version of Voluntary Mapsforge (for OAM maps in Locus), which colour codes hiking routes in the Hiking theme only, as requested by @respublikamroja. 
Colours are:
- international walking routes: blue ██
- national walking routes: red ██
- regional walking routes: green ██
- local or unspecified walking routes: yellow ██

Feedback welcome. If positive, I could extend the colouring to other versions of the theme and to cycle routes in the Cycle style - but not to the multi, yellow, or transparent styles in the themes because they allow the user to show both hiking and cycling routes which would become confusing.

Edit: Please note, this does not show the difficulty of visibility of the route, only its place in the hierarchy.

Thx, I like all the changes.
In some of your presets, there is no option to turn details off in low ZL, is that intended?

That was intended in order to simplify the options.

Thank You very much.
That was what I meant. It's nice if the routes were in a continuous color, without interruption, as in LoMap. These are just my strange wishes.But it is already very well. Thank you very much :)

Hi John, you theme shows a grid in some zoom levels. Not a big problem, but I wanted to make screenshots showing the Locus grid. That's bad, because then there's two grids...

Anything you can do? Some themes show this grid, eg. Elevate does not. thx

Screen is 1080x2244, no magnification of map, grid can be seen on ZL 12/13 (value according to Locus top toolbar)

@tapio It's an unfortunate side effect of using semi transparent fills to allow underlying details to show through. As it seems only to be a problem at zooms 12/13 I'll try reverting to a solid fill at those levels. I had that before but for some reason changed it.

Try the attached file which has transparency for woods removed for zoom level 12 & 13. Unzip and load over previous version.
It also has colour coded hiking routes in the Hiking style, colour coded cycle and mtb routes in the Cycling style, surface indication of cyclable ways in the Cycle style.
Colours are:
- international walking routes: dark blue ██
- national walking routes: red ██
- regional walking routes: light green ██
- local or unspecified walking routes: lime yellow ██

- international cycling routes: dark blue ██
- national cycling routes: red ██
- regional cycling routes: light blue ██
- local or unspecified cycling routes: lime yellow ██

- international, national,  regional MTB routes: rose ██
- local or unspecified MTB routes: violet ██

In other styles, hiking routes can be emphasised in light green ██, cycle routes emphasised in light blue ██. MTB routes emphasised in violet ██.
