Higher Contrast for difficult hiking trails (T4-T6)

First of all - the new map compilation server runs stable and is well secured - so I don't fear that there could be any intruders again. I've been hiking and trailrunning with my maps lately quite a lot - and noticed that it was sometimes difficult to see difficult hiking trails on the OpenMTBMap, T4 to T6 on the maps. So all maps updated since 20.08 or later now have a higher contrast layout for those hiking trails. 

Also on the desktop (trad.typ) layout of the OpenMTBMap - I've changed how the contourlines are displayed a little bit. The standard layout without definitions by Garmin is very nice - but the labels for the altitude are too large and prominent. So I went back to custom layout for 50m and 100/200/300/.... meter lines - as the labelling cannot be changed alone. I'm not sure if I will change the VeloMap too to the same layout. So far no change here for the VeloMaps.

Lastly there was a bug in the OpenMTBmaps, that the combination of: incline=up or incline=>0 (not incline=down), mtb:scale=1 and mtb:scale:uphill=1 - gave wrong arrow direction (all other combinations of these keys/tags were fine - this was a rare case so went unnoticed for several years). This is fixed now too.
