[Script] WME Color Highlights - 2.33 Sept 2020

Post by
Here's my script which adds color highlighting to segments and landmarks according to their status and type. The highlighting of segments is likely to be most useful, for it shows locked and un-named roads (with many other features since the first version). Click on the link below to see full changelog.

I love your script and use it daily but in the "Filter by City" feature the yellow color is difficult to see on Primary Streets. With a bit of trial-and-error I did a temp hack by inserting a nice magenta in the script but would it be possible to change the script permanently so the Filter by City uses a color that will show up with good contrast on all streets? Thanks!

Actually it will filter even PRs and PLRs if there is a city or alternate city listed for the road, or if "No City" is selected.

Is this why the city highlight yellow is a darker shade?

It's actually a bit harder (for me) to discern the highlights now, the darker yellow (nearing brown) is closer to blending in with the green of grass/trees. I can work with it, just making sure it's intended behavior.

I agree that for me the new color makes things harder. When I suggested that the yellow used for "Filter by City" be changed, I had in mind something with unmistakable contrast with the common colors used for various levels of streets in WME so I am changing the color used in Line 441 to "#ed28ea" which is a vivid magenta that you won't mistake for anything else on the map.

Thank you for the script. Is it possible to have a Master Switch to disable/enable the script? Right now, I have to go to Tampermonkey to turn it off and on again. I would like to retain the existing settings when it's turned off.

Thanks

It doesn't do that to me. It is working well highlighting the PLRs in purple.

We've discussed this before and decided not to. Revcon and Selfcon are not exactly big errors and seeing them on the map usually makes editors go all q+w all over the map and destroy valid turn restrictions.

What does this represent?
I'm not totally sure, but I believe that dotted/dashed lines signify an alternate name. So Orange dashed would be a No Name alternate name, which can likely be deleted as it serves no purpose.

I can't see the details on the world server, but I do see the dashed line. Tim? :)

FYI, this segment needs to be fixed. It makes a "loop" but it's a single segment which wraps back on itself with only a single junction. It should be straightened out and made into multiple segments. Also, why are there so many restricted turns on the roundabout there?
