Thunderforest key and MOBAC

Postby droptop » 20 Sep 2017, 14:59

I have been using MOBAC for quite a few years and have found it to be a very useful program, especially for creating my hiking maps.
I had used Thunderforest maps before their use by MOBAC was withdrawn.
I now have a Thunderforest api key and thought I may be able to use MOBAC with these maps now, but without success. This is my line in the custom source file:

Code: Select all

<url>https://tile.thunderforest.com/landscape/{$z}/{$x}/{$y}.png?apikey=insertkeyhere</url>

Is it possible to use Thunderforest with key in MOBAC and if so can somebody correct my custom source line entry?
If not, does anyone have other software recommendations for using Thunderforest maps - hopefully as easy and practical as MOBAC?

According to their pricing bulk download requires at least the "Small Business" plan (£195 per month).
Therefore I assume that MOBAC is simply blocked.
Please read the MOBAC FAQ and MOBAC README before posting.

The serverpart parameter is missing, please have a look at the example on http://www.thunderforest.com/maps/landscape/ .

According to http://www.thunderforest.com/docs/map-tiles-api/ the server part is optional.

Modified my custom map source accordingly, works without the server part too.
