These are gone in 3.0. It is much more a monochrome UI.

Not ready to post the code yet as there is some fine-tuning to do. This is my replacement for night-mode, mostly because I dislike the fact that night mode has almost no color and I like to see my road types. :) Dark yellow for minor hwy, red for major, blue for interstate, ramps are green, primary is orange-ish. Cities are are dark as I can get them and still be differentiated from the black background. Added a slightly brighter outline for the city boundary to make it stand out.

Looking to also make night buttons, too. Maybe

If you read this thread, especially on this page 3 near the top, there is the same question with link.

Cheers!

Isn't that kinda like the dark one posted one post before yours by shalafi? It's similar, at least. Dark background with vibrant/saturated colors.

I've realized my dark color scheme posted doesn't work like the screenshot shows. I somehow copied something else...

So, here it is again, with two screenshots below. I've noted that some landmarks like Airport and Mall or Store do not render with the color settings in the schema file. Instead, they seem to get the "station" type of, in my theme, a dark gold color.

The screenshots give a good idea how things look at two zoom levels. Cities are gray with whiteborder, road colors follow the map editors theme but darker. Minor Hwy and Primary are near the same color, but are visibly different at the lower zoom level.

I asked this a long time ago and got a not-very definitive answer. I'll go look to see if I have it anywhere, but I rather doubt it.

EDIT: Here is the answer I was given by Dror. I don't think he asked anyone, so this could be completely wrong:
Dror wrote:As far as I know, adding the "00" at the end of the color code, deactivate the parameter. For example, cities and airports defined under "Stations", therefore there is no use of the specific color for each - they get the same gray as "stations".
