As some (or most) of the people here is not liking the new Road layer (incl. me), I've asked to myself:

Why does Waze have to choose which colors we like? Wouldn't it be nice to let the user choose? Wouldn't it be better for color-blind people to choose colours they can distinguish?
Unfortunately this is not possible with the current tiles, as they are generated on a Waze server and we just download them.
In order to do so, the tiles has to be generated by our browsers.

That said, after one afternoon of work I've created this vector layer.
Pros: :)
  • It's possible to customize it (color of the road, size of the road, ...)
  • It keeps working if the tile server is down
  • Saves bandwidth (i guess not much, but better than nothing).
  • What you see is what you can edit. When the elements are loaded they are drawn. No more clicking on segments that can't be selected.
  • You don't have to save to see the edit, segments are redrawn when you move/delete them (less confusion when deleting/moving segments).
  • Tries to take the good things of the old and new layers and puts them together (mostly old colors for street, primary and highways and new colors for non-drivable/dirty/parking lot streets, plus restrictions and toll).
  • If the segment is closed a purple dashed line is shown on top of it.
Cons (so far): :(
  • Makes your CPU work a little bit more
  • Names placements is not as nice as in the new road layer but, as far as I know, with this version of OpenLayer, is not possible to do better. Names might overlap.

The script is currently in "alpha" status. Some things still needs to be fixed or improved.
Let me know what you think about it, so I can see if it's worth keeping developing it.

If you would like to try it, please send me a PM, I'll let you know in the following hours/days when I have something usable.

You need a way to edit the browser local storage. I use an extension which makes it really simple.

+ Implemented a user request:
Option to show geometry nodes on all segments except roundabouts (disabled by default). It's in the menu under:
Rendering Parameter > Close zoom > Render geometry nodes

Moved the "Render map as level" into the "Rendering parameter" section.
i cried a tear of joy

thanks so much

1) Click on a place
2) Click on a road while already on a place -- can't select a road
3) esc to get off the place - now can select a road

turn off your script, I can click from place straight to a road.

My initial problem of not being able to click on a place at all wasn't happening this morning.

Not a big deal. Just one extra click and since no errors, I'm not much help.
me too
