Place names
« on: November 01, 2021, 14:55:16 »
Would it be possible to improve place name rendering?

Attached is a screen shot of France taken from the LoMaps city theme, compared to Stamen's toner (my device has a grayscale display).

Notice that the LoMap shows Argenteuil instead of Paris most likely because Argenteuil is rendered before Paris.

Hi,
this is a really really an old, currently unsolvable problem for LoMaps maps. A possible solution is to use a more modern version of the map library. You may try it with OpenAndroMaps, which currently uses this V4 version of the MapsForge library. Thanks for understanding.
