Tiramisù is getting close to the final release…
What changed and why
Land-use is back
I previously removed a lot of land-use patterns with the goal of cleaning up the map background, probably too much. After quite a bit of work they are back. I hope that I found the right balance between completeness and clutter. Thanks for the push, Tobias.
Forests are now lighter to be less intrusive and grass is put behind everything else: bad mapping with overlapped land-use should be less of a problem.
Patterns are now seamless by themselves and fit evenly in MapsForge’s 256x256px tile size. They should look much better now in every situation.
Fixed water ways (hopefully)
Pipelines should now appear only if overground. Water bodies are now opaque to prevent river axis from showing through. In some lakes it looked really bad.
I had problems to see contour lines in forest areas, so I made them a little thicker and darker starting from zoom-level 15.
Steps and bridges
Steps and paths on bridges are now uniformed to the general style (they retained Elevate’s style before).
Grade 2 tracks have now a uniform light brown/yellowish core. Grades 3 to 5 have a dashed brown colour: the darker and the shorter the dash, the higher the grade. Just like before, but the difference is now more visible. Thanks for the push, Fabrizio.
Hiking networks’ highlighting is less transparent than before to be more consistent with different backgrounds.
Low-density displays support (sort of)
There are now three versions of Tiramisù, they work independently and can coexist side by side. The only real difference is symbols size, everything else is the same. In the LR version some symbols are a little too blurred: fixing that at this stage is too much work, I’ll do it with the final release. Meanwhile you can test the icon’s size.
Not much. I’m waiting the new OpenAndroMaps to add full SAC scale to paths, and complete hut classification. I hope to have the final release before the end of January. Meanwhile please test and let me know how it works for you in the comments (the “leave a comment” link is at the top of the page). Italian, English and French accepted.
How to install
First download the zipped theme file.
This version is deprecated. You should get the newer one instead.
Tiramisù 1.0 LR beta (Suggested for 200 dpi devices) Tiramisù 1.0 beta (Suggested for 300 dpi devices) Tiramisù 1.0 HR beta (Suggested for 450 dpi devices)
Then follow the standard instructions at the OAM website.
When done, open the Oruxmaps settings and change the mapsforge text multiplier (Settings->Maps and scroll way down) to anything that makes the text readable on your screen. As a rule of thumb 1.0 for 200 dpi, 1.5 for 300 dpi and 2 for 450 dpi is a good start.
Then check the default zoom level (Settings->Maps->Zoom settings->Default zoom) and set it to 100%. Oruxmaps has the arguable feature of setting it to higher values by default on high density displays. This makes a lot of sense for raster maps, but makes vector ones look jagged, so you really should set it back to 100%.
