[Theme] V-Scale2_Pure
« on: June 22, 2014, 17:36:44 »
further development stopped.
new theme in preparation...


I updated a bit the V-Scale_Pure theme.
Now with motorway junctions and hopefully with better visible town names.
 


Unzip the the attached file  (both folders in zip) to _themes

Have fun

UPDATE 27.06.2014
Inspired by this question http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=4000.0 I mad a few smaller changes.
The minor roads are a bit more visible.
Tracks and paths are shown later  (up from zoom level 15). Now streets are better visible in minor zooms.

@Christian,
I hope the motorway and junction tags are once more a bit improved. But it seems not to be possible to get all tags in all zoom levels. Sometimes they are overlapping, or I have to stretch them to far from the ways. May you have a look please?  :D
@borkenkäfer
I removed the "track grades" and other hike or cycle tags in this theme, so pathes and tracks shoud be better visible now


Please unzip the attached V-Scale2_Pure_20140627.zip and replace (only) the V-Scale2_Pure.xml in /Locus/mapsVector/_themes/VScale2_Pure folder.

Attention for new users
As long as it´s not sufficient for us, I will make a few improvments and only change the xml file.
Later I will make one package.

For new users
Please follow these steps

1. download both zips
2. unzip at first  the V-Scale2-Pure.zip.
3. unzip  V-Scale2-Pure_XXXXXXXX.zip.
4..move the unpacked V-Scale2_Pure.xml from  V-Scale2-Pure_XXXXXXXX.zip to V-Scale2_Pure folder you have unzipped before
5. copy both folders to /Locus/mapsVector/_themes/


further development stopped.
new theme in preparation...

Locus Pro could not load the file.
 Am receiving a "main.xml" error. Did another download and received the same error notice.
 Possibly an error in the "V-Scale2_Pure.xml" file.
Thanks ..

Do you have 2 directories?
/Locus/mapsVector/_themes/VScale2 and
/Locus/mapsVector/_themes/VScale2_Pure

I will update a cycle and a hike theme, so that you don't need to have an additional resource folder for each theme.

Hi jusc,

thank you, it work's fine. I have two remarks

1. Some kinds of ways are not so good visible in areas (landuse = forest)
   (https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/147887813)




2. The name of a lake is shown more than one times, also for a small on, may be it's not necessary.



Regards
Thomas
Viele Grüße

Hi Jusc,
Habe im Folder ..../mapsvector/_themes/V-scale2 mit den Unterverz. Omsc, patterns, symbols und die Datei V-scale2_pure.xml.
Wenn ich eine mapsvectorkarte (zb Grrmsny) aufrufe, kann ich keine Ausfahrtnummern sehen.
Was mache ich falsch?
Bin noch kein Themes Profi.
Gerhard

/Locus/mapsVector/_themes/VScale2 with the subdirectories
and
/Locus/mapsVector/_themes/VScale2_Pure/ with only one file: VScale2_Pure.xml

The maps are from http://www.openandromaps.org/.  What is Grrmsny? Germany? The Germany map works as shown in the screenshots above.

Hi Gerhard
hast du das Theme auch ausgewählt?
(Hauptmenü-Mehr-Schnellwechsel-Thema der Karten) evtl. Schnellwechselmenü bearbeiten!

Gruß
KaHeMu

Edit:
Mapdetails-Thema auswählen geht natürlich auch!

   (https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/147887813)
I try to make it more visible, particularly for hike and cycle themes, but this theme should be used as "City" theme.
In this theme I ´m thinking about throwing all special values away.

2. The name of a lake is shown more than one times, also for a small on, may be it's not necessary.

In this case I don´t see any solution at the moment. It seems to come up with higher zoom levels and only for some smaller lakes.

nice theme. but it has small errors:
up to zoom level 16 all exits are shown properly (sometime doubled), zoom level 17 no labels are shown for some exits, zoom level 18 all stuff is displayed.

In zoom level 14 name is printed on top of number, therefore number is not rentable.
Example: Germany A9 Allershausen
