Nope. I just added this segment
and it shows (on click) on the Livemap instantly.
Then the new livemap was applied to both servers? Since the beta thread always said it was only for US/Canada I hadn't even bothered to check on ROTW.
That's a big mess on livemap then. And I'm sure this is some feature that nobody knew about and that is around way before the new live map on the US.
So there are three relevant "features" on livemap for this discussion:
- the visual drawing of the map, which is stopped in time since the infrastructure migration - august? october? last year. Some weeks ago it got a layer of cream color on top.
- the routing algorithm, which follows the exact same path as the current client tiles, meaning it can draw a line completely unrelated to the livemap drawing. For this we (I) knew that we could guess where to click on a new/changed road to define the start and stop point.
- now the new feature is that changes on the editor reflect automatically on live map. wow. I've double checked this one. Created a new segment on the editor, gave it a specific name, and could select it on live map. Unfortunately this is irrelevant because the routing algorithm doesn't know about such road and won't create a route through it.
I'm mentioning this because even without the updated visuals, if it were true that both the new segments and the routing would be instantly up-to-date, it would be amazing to live test those small detail adjustments we do for keep/turn instructions or roundabout angles.
