I still can't believe you need to root Android to get a screen capture. Not user friendly at all.

Not with the newer ones you don't

OK, I must be missing something pretty big.

I just copied in AlanOfTheBerg's scheme that was posted back on pg 3. I carefully cut'n'pasted just the color definition lines, and carefully matched up parameter names so I could ensure that I was getting them in the right places, but my screen looks nothing like his.

Note, something odd is happening to the colors when they're posted here - they don't look anywhere near so sickly green either on my device or when I look at them from the PC. It even looks ugly when I uploaded it to Photobucket. Not sure what's going on. Net result, I'm not getting blue interstates, etc as AOTB showed in his pics.

Now, I did leave the *.DeltaX: values and *.Thickness: values alone. I wanted to see how the colors looked with the current road widths before I made them narrower, but the colors don't seem to be showing up as changed.

Here is the schema file, in case I've done something very obviously (to everyone else) wrong.

Also, I noticed the *.Declutter: values. Interstates are set to a huge number which seems to indicate that they'll never go away. If I play with the numbers for streets, will they stick around at higher speeds? Where I live, we have a lot of county roads that really shouldn't be anything more than "street", yet the speed limits are 45-55MPH, and are commonly traveled faster than that. Of course, they disappear at those speeds. I'd like to make 'em come back again! ;)

Did you use the post from September? Because that is the right one. The other one, I don't know what happened.


Aargh! That was it, I grabbed the Feb post. I've got a copy of the Sept post now, and I'll feed that in.

Works great, now, Alan. Thanks!

One question. Currently in WME, we can specify a landmark type of "other", and we've been using it to mark out major construction zones (where roads will be closed, restricted, rebuilt, etc for months at a time). I don't see an "Other" category in the schema file, can I add one it to get it to recognize those?

Disappointing. :(

I created a new set of entries in the night schema called Other.*, changed the color setting, but my "other" landmark doesn't show up in the new color.

le sigh... :(

IIRC, the last 2 digits of the 8-digit one are always zero. Not sure what the difference is...

IIRC, Declutter affects the number of roadnames visible on the screen. It does nothing about the amount of segments that are shown at different zoom levels.
