Re: [Script] WME Image Overlays (1.2.0)

This script has saved me a lot of time already and helped me accurately setup some complex interchanges that I would have had to otherwise guess at. I have some images saved on my home computer and some on my work computer. I can manually copy the images to both computers, but is there a way to sync the image attributes (size, rotation, location)? Some take me a while to get just right. Was that the purpose of the export function you mentioned in August?

This script makes me about as happy as WMEFU does! :)

I would like to ask if you'd reconsider adding the vertical and horizontal stretch options, though.

If not, I can do it client side as well, so no huge deal.

I agree with RichardPyne's observation that the controls really do seem much coarser now in WME2.

Thanks, we really appreciate your work on this and will gladly wait until you get a chance to look at this, remaining grateful for what we have.

Otherwise, you might spend a few minutes rotating & resizing your image until you have it perfectly lined up - then hit the wrong button by mistake and be back to the start! :oops:

I'd ask you why you posted this, but I already know! ARGH!! lol

Sorry if this has come up before if it can't be helped, but I'd like to suggest modifying the layout of the controls to maximize available real estate and eliminate all that open space (attachment #1). As you can see in that image, the actual working area of the map is down to perhaps 35% of the total screen area. The point where you are trying to fine tune an image overlay is the worst time to have the working view of the map reduced so much.

Would help increase map view to move all of the image controls into the open space on the bottom of the left panel (attachment #2). If that can't be done, can the map controls be flattened out and widened to eliminate all the open space on either side of those controls (attachment #3)?

All that said, still super happy with this script, huge HUGE help. Thank you!

Yes please, if changes are considered and time permits, really looking forward to the UI changes to compress the controls and expand the image adjustment viewing area suggested a ways back. Such a helpful script, though... thanks!

I know some people have commented about the fairly large bar the script places across the top of the screen; particularly once you've added the editing controls. Is it worth placing those control buttons in the LH panel?

You already have some controls there. I don't have the biggest of screens, but it looks like there's room there for the array of buttons, leaving more space on the map to see where you're placing your image.

I made some cheap mockups of this exact request back on this post. Hopefully it is the pipeline! A floating panel would also be cool.

Absolutely outstanding, thank you so much!! 8-)

I made this attached image to use with Image Overlays while creating or improving roundabouts, specifically to make it easy to ensure that roundabout attachments are within the correct parameters to produce "turn right", "turn left", "continue straight", etc.

As a quick start guide for anyone who is not familiar with roundabout attachment points and how they impact turn directives, you can generate the above turn directions in place of "take the 2nd exit" etc, as long as the attachment points are at 90 degree intervals +/- 15 degrees. The actual turn angle of the segment relative to the roundabout segments is irrelevant in this regard.... it's the difference in degrees between attachment points from the point of view of the center of the roundabout that controls turn directives.

Use Image Overlays to place and position this guide on top of where you will be placing your roundabout, and draw your roads so that when the RAB is added your attachment points will fit within the narrow forks relative to adjacent attached segments, and you're all set to generate clean roundabout turn instructions without any trial and error adjustments.

To allow plenty of margin for error, the angles on this guide are +/- 10 degrees instead of +/- 15, so you can actually fudge a little bit outside of the narrow forks and probably still be OK, just verify with JAI after you save your work.


EDIT: Or...of course, you could use the RA Util script, which allows you to see turn angles while you use it to cleanly move specific junctions and accomplish the same goal when working on existing RABs - I hadn't realized it did that when I put this together, but was brought to my attention by the great iainhouse, lol. :oops: :lol:
