[Script] Road Shield Assistant (RSA)

Post by
Road Shield Assistant is designed to assist editors mapping shields. There are several general options as well as some that need to be configured per country.

If the country specific options are not configured for your country the relevant options will be disabled in the UI. Please DM/PM myself (SkiDooGuy) and we'll work to get your country set up for those options.

This script is also translation ready - so if it's not loading in your localized language please let me know and we'll get the strings loaded.

I also say thanks @SkiDooGuy for this much-needed addition when mapping Road Shields.

I noticed that Road Shields on ramp segments are not being displayed. This is needed in Germany because of the import done by Waze, such ramp segments also have a Road Shield set.
If we could see them with the script more easily, we could better remove them in the future.

I found the issue (MD-xxx was not in the list of names) and submitted a pull request to Bruce for review.

In particular, most of the District of Columbia and some of the nearby areas around the borders of the District seem to be a black hole.
Do you have a PL where the black hole exists?

Since the only place that the script is listed at is in Beta Scripts, the only editors that should even know about it are beta editors.

I admit I didn't read all previous pages, so sorry if it was already asked/discussed.
Feature requests (as option): only display shields on minors and up (as they would appear on the client).

Thanks :). Testing it, it seems to remove shields also from Minors, at the moment.

Maybe because the roadshield is (also) applied to a street?

Thanks, now it works :)

And... isn't the script actually missing the:

Code: Select all

// @updateURL    https://greasyfork.org/scripts/425050-wme-road-shield-assistant/code/WME%20Road%20Shield%20Assistant.user.js
to update automatically?

Would it be possible to limit the number of times the shields are shown for a segment, there are times when the map is obliterated. Would be nice to be able set either X time per segment or ever X miles/feet
