John, I've inserted the following code to line 1486, now it shows forests, what do you think? It's from Velocity, I limited the ZL and changed color to Voluntary color. I think.
Can it be done this way or do you see problems?

<rule e="way" k="natural|landuse" v="forest|wood" zoom-max="11">
<area fill="#C9DDA7"/>
</rule>

@tapio That would work fine at the expense of not showing the protected area, which is important for me in the UK.
Perhaps my preference is just to make the wood green appear sooner:
<rule e="way" k="*" v="*" zoom-min="8" zoom-max="11">
<area fill="#C8E1C8"/>
</rule>

as line 531. Adjust the zoom min to suit.

Can you explain - the various forest types have an alpha channel in their coloring (60),doesn't it make the theme more unpredictable, when layers stack up? However, I'm trying a more green approach...

The transparency in the wood layers allows underlying features to show through. Real life examples I have encountered include disused quarries and public parks (brighter green). There are other situations as well.

@tapio I've turned down the gold tint somewhat, extended the wood rendering to lower zooms, and tweaked the highlight colours for MTB and hiking routes. http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/61b34ef373e7e/Voluntary%20V5%20tapio.zip

John, maybe I'm too quick - the Voluntary Locus.zip\Voluntary\changelog.txt latest "Recent Changes Dec 2021" - I don't see any more recent changes?

The latest version of the Voluntary themes will display Ordnance Survey crag markings on the latest OAM maps of Great Britain, Scotland, Wales, the Lake District and the Shetland Isles.
See first post to download.

Some strange behaviour by the Tapatalk app and the forum. I'm finding multiple posts and posts in the wrong order!
But please try the first post again.

I've made a slight modification to the Voluntary themes to force "private" gates to display at higher zooms.
Also don't miss the display of Ordnance Survey crag markings on the latest UK maps from OAM.
Download from the first post, as usual.

Hi,
because your theme is my favorite  8) ... I have a question.
I tried to enlarge parking areas and show them earlier while zooming.
But result wasn't such good as expected.
Is there anywhere a description how the XML should/could be changed?
Or is it just trial and error ... 😉

@jonny.blue The minimum zoom at which items appear is governed firstly by what is encoded in the maps (typically Z15 for OAM maps for parking symbol) and secondly by any zoom-min restrictions in the theme.
Further to that, if symbols would clash with other symbols of text, the map renderer usually hides them. That can be modified or controlled by adding (for example) priority="100" and/or display="always".
The rules are hard to find and I can't remember where I should tell you to look. Sorry.

Thanks, I'll try something like this.

John, I think your hosting site is down, I get a bad gateway error when trying to access theme or legends.
