[Script] WME Colored Map Comments

Postby dude495 » Sat Mar 30, 2019 10:15 pm

So I know its been asked (I've even asked myself long ago) about a simple script to change the color of Map Comments. The need for this is definitely not in high demand but another editor mentioned to me about clicking a "Map Comment" repeatedly getting frustrated it wasn't opening.... Turns out it was a water tower... I would normally laugh and walk away if I had not done this myself a time or six. So that being said I wrote up a quick script to allow you to customize the color of Map Comment points.

The setting to change the MC color is under the WME Settings panel (gear icon).

If you use the color wheel, you do not need to hit save as the change occurs as soon as you select a color. Should you wish to manually enter a color HEX code you'll need to include the # before the 6-digit color code, then click SAVE.

This only works on MC points?
I am not seeing a change in my Area Map Comment color.

Only map comment points, as mentioned above. The reason behind this is map comment areas are very easy to identify from all zooms, so I didn’t feel they needed to be changed. If it’s desired I can add areas as well, later on.

Yes when selecting a map comment area it’ll change the nodes as due to the quick way I set it. I honestly didn’t spend a lot of time with this to eliminate this from happening.

Release Notes:
v2019.04.01.01-2019.04.01.02
  • Internal Code change (Thanks Justin!)
  • Added Area MC support

(No visual change from x.01 to x.02)

If there is enough desire for separate coloring of points vs area I will change it, otherwise both points and areas will be colored the same way.

Any errors in the console? I haven’t been in front of my Mac in weeks. I can try to get on sometime tomorrow and look.
