What appears in Windows as a shortcut lnk file is the link to the map key in Locus (long press in theme manager). So that's ok.
But I'll repackage the zip file correctly - thanks for pointing that out!

PS Tapatalk seems not to be downloading zip files at present. I keep getting the post itself in html form.

About Tapatalk: that observation is correct. I had to switch to the website. Tapatalk has a button for that under the three dots.
Wil try the new theme next week with V5 maps.

I've repackaged the zip files so the themes are already in a folder.
I've also added direct links to the zip files stored elsewhere to bypass the problem with the Tapatalk app.
Please download from the first post in this thread.

Or use these direct links:

In V5 maps, hike, bike and MTB routes can be displayed and highlighted independently of each other.
IMO that was possible with V4 maps as well. Since I don't know much about v4 vs. v5 - Do you know what's different? What is it that makes them excellent? Thx. I'm also using v5 maps now.

@tapio As far as the v5 maps are concerned, data for MTB and cycle networks is now separated. Also the names of hike, bike and MTB networks are now preserved. That's new in v5.
As far as the theme is concerned, it's now able to display any two of the types of network at the same time, with highlights on one on each side of the path or track, and blobs alternating. That's new in this version, largely because of the changes in v5 maps.
Screenshot is of cycling and MTB networks along the same route. If the user selects to show only one of the types of network (or there is only one network) the highlight is displayed on both sides of the route.

Very complete John, also in the Netherlands with all the bike and hike-nodes. Thank you again.

There's a big difference between visibility of hiking vs mtb routes. I like the coloring... but... maybe in lower zoom levels at least, is it worth thinking about giving the hiking routes a bit more strength, mtb routes a bit less?

V5 maps with your theme are the opus magnum of map display 👍

@tapio Of course if you're walking through woods the green highlight doesn't show so well!
Probably worth a tweak, though. Thanks.

Thx, I think I'll make the green stronger... Can you tell me which lines are relevant here?

@tapio search for ee00dd00 I suggest you keep the ee at the start.
Let me know what you decide on.

I like it more with darker green, 00bb00 rgb.

Why do forest areas turn brown in low ZL? Velocity does not do this, it uses green. Voluntary does seem to show arras other than forests on top.

Voluntary (coffee stain edition) vs. Velocity.

@tapio "Coffee stain", or as I prefer to call it "golden tint" indicates so-called "protected areas" such as nature reserves, areas of natural beauty, national parks that are in general accessible. Protected areas where in general access is restricted are shown with a pink tint.
The tint is stronger at lower zooms.
The area of slightly darker tint in your screenshot is a nature reserve within a larger protected area. The areas that are much darker are military areas of some sort.
I suspect the usefulness of this rendering depends on both the use of protected areas in different countries and the extent of industrialisation.

The exact choice of green for hiking route highlights is a difficult one as it mustn't be confused with either the various shades of green used for vegetation or with the fill for trunk roads. I'll continue to look at it.

So what I may want is give protected areas lower priority? Do you have a (search) hint. I'm more interested in the forests, just as in Velocity theme or as Voluntary displays in higher zooms.
