There are two web links to the keys and also two zip files attached to the  first post in this thread. The zip files contain the themes.

Apologies for such a quick update but I've realised that many of the wilderness huts (bothies) in Scotland are mapped as both "wilderness huts" and "basic_hut" shelters. I've now modified the two Voluntary themes to prioritise showing (a) if the hut is private (b) if it is a basic shelter (for example, no fire) (c) if it is a true wilderness hut. I think this conveys the best information and hope it works elsewhere. This update changes only wilderness huts and if you are not interested in them you can skip this update.
The theme files are zipped and attached to the  first post in this thread.

Thanks. I hadn't realised that. I've added a comment to the first post to point that out.

Minor change to only show survey points on peaks. Download from the first post.

Hi John, the highway exits are totally uninteresting for me as a hiker, can you change this? mfv4

Those actually are not junction numbers but cycle route nodes, which are supposed to be of interest to cyclists.
I admit the size is far too large! We don't have these in the UK so I'd overlooked testing them properly. I'll make some changes in the next version which will be out shortly.
In the meantime, try out this version, attached below.

John, this one you attached has brighter forests and no tree symbols?

I think, highway junction names use too much space. To me Locus is not car routing software so I'd like to get rid of such text...

The good side of mfv4+ seems, the priority of city/village/town names works.

The modified theme I posted last night for you is named Voluntary MF v5 (and uses v5 scaling for dashed and dotted lines).
The version with no tree symbols is called Velocity MF v5 and has a simplified display.
Junction names only appear in the "roads" style, and shouldn't look like that. There's something wrong here, either in the mapping or in my modified theme. I'll look into it.
Edit: Looks like the link roads have been mapped with extended junction names. Not very helpful. I'll take the road references off link roads to solve that.
Edit 2: Please try the modified theme in the attachment to this post.

Hmm. I have trees in mine! I don't think any files are missing in the archive but either the installation may have gone wrong or the theme cache may be stuck.
Could you please validate the integrity of the theme by a long tap on its name in the theme chooser. That will also kick the theme cache if it is stuck. If it fails to verify, it should tell you of any missing files. You might try deleting the theme from the same long tap menu and installing the modified theme I just added to the previous post.
(The tree symbols do not appear at zoom 13 in the City style, or if the detail box is unchecked.)

Again learned something new, long tap on themes...
Was my mistake, I put vol_res a level above the xml file, because it was like this before.
Thank you. Without your theme or Elevate, Locus makes no sense 😂
