Welcome to first post on new Locus homepage
Hope you’ll like it. We’re preparing (finally) some working manual together with many useful tips for Locus features that are working, but don’t have any documentation or have only some simple information on forum.
Anyway this is not main reason for this post (to celebrate new pages). Main reason are as usually … maps.
So since 1.14.0 version, all downloading limits are reduced for OSM maps from 25 000, to 10 000 tiles per day. This affect also external maps added by your own. If you’re adding your own server (for this purpose is ability to add external servers in Locus), add to http header comming from your server also locus_disable_download_limit:true, which will disable downloading limits for your own server and increase number of threads to 3!!
If you’re satisfied Locus user (and don’t want to have reduced downloading), you have to keep current version (1.13.6 – which is anyway without serious issues and fully working). If you update, you agree with these changes. It’s on your own decision. If you want maps, best is to create own OSM vector maps by this manual. You’ll have them for free and without harming any web servers!
