== Default color schemes ==
Thirteen daytime color schemes are available in the Waze 3.x client:
* Default
* Green peace
* Map editors
* Green fields
There are just two daytime color schemes are available in the Waze 4.0 client:
* Default
* Map editors
The daytime color scheme can be changed in Settings - Display Settings - Map Color Scheme.
Each color scheme is defined by a '''schema file'''. The schema file contains the color and size information for each road type and certain other features, such as Places, water features, map labels, and so forth.
It should be noted that due to significant differences between the v3.x client and the v4.x client color schemes are not interchangeable and must be designed for the correct client version.
The easiest way to create your own scheme is to start with one of the default schema files. To get to the default schema files, you'll need a file browser for your device (such as iFunBox for use with iOS devices, or ASTRO File Manager for Android).
*In iOS, the day schemes are found in '''User Applications » Waze » » skins » default » day''' and its subfolders, and the night scheme is found in '''User Applications » Waze » » skins » default » night'''.
*{{anchor|Android files}}In Android, you can use the visual Editor [ Toggelis Waze Editor], or edit the files manually. The day schemes are found in '''SD Card (or your root folder) » Waze » skins » default » day''' and its subfolders, and the night scheme is found in '''SD Card (or your root folder) » Waze » skins » default » night'''.
You may wish to copy both directories to your computer to make it easier.
* '''12: Default'''
* day folder: Vitamin C
Note that Waze 4.0 for iOS only has two day color schemes; Default (12) and Map Editors (8 - with old colors).
To edit a schema file, open it in a text editor. Each schema file is a list of parameters – most relating to color and size. Color parameters are in #rrggbb hex color format (see [[wikipedia:web colors|web colors]]); some color parameters have two additional digits, controlling the alpha channel (transparency) of that particular feature (#rrggbbaa).
*Delta2 (fill color margin for unmunched roads; negative value)
*LabelDeclutter (zoom level at which the label is forcibly hidden)
*LabelColor: (label color #rrggbbaa)

'''Note: As of iOS 8.3 it is not possible to load custom color schemes to an Apple device until Waze enables iTunes file sharing for the app.'''
Installing custom themes in iOS does not require replacing the default themes, so don't worry about creating a backup.
* Get an iOS file manager, such as [ iFunBox].
** Note that this will replace the default night theme; only one night theme can be installed at a given time.
* To use an installed theme,
** Day schemes: In Settings » Display » Display settings » Map Color Scheme, select the name of the theme you replaced. So, if you placed your schema file in folder '''5''', select "Tutti-frutti" in the app to use your custom scheme (there is currently no known way to rename schemes in the list in the app). Also, ensure that the client is in "day" mode, or leave it in "auto" and wait until daytime.
** Night schemes: Set the client to "night" mode or wait until nighttime.
* You can replace a schema file for a currently-selected theme even while the client is running, but to use a new version of a theme you are already running, you have to make the client reload the theme. To do this, switch away from and back to that theme. The quickest way to do this is to set the client to day/night mode and back.
