[ img ] Given that the IGN editors just blanket-approve place updates without bothering to add additional information (street address, business website, etc.) or ensure that the picture submitted is acceptable and useful, having them approve a place before one of us editors can get to it can be problematic.

Having a way to show places last edited by ign_* would at least let us know they're there, which then gives us an opportunity to make the place more useful....

Any chance this can be added in the future?

v2.1 - added highlight of tunnels to "Highlight a Road Type"

I already use the drop-down to highlight a different type of road that I'm always watching for. Could you instead make it one of the check-able road types like "toll," "no name," "one way," etc?

Pretty please? :mrgreen:

No, highways are pink now. They're only purple because you've got one-way checked in highlights. :lol:

(Actually, I think that's freeways, but I could be wrong...)

@Frodo-p - looks pink to me; maybe my eyes are just weird. I use the drop-down (purple) to select parking lot roads, and it's a decidedly different color than what the freeways look like.

Either way, you're right - it's an awful color choice by the dev team.

Timbones wrote:It's tricky, as I've run out of unique colours. Are there any that no one uses any more? Like unknown direction? (Obviously not, looking at screenshot above)

Maybe you could make it a dashed color, like you do for toll roads?

You could try combining other extensions, such as Validator to highlight roads types with a custom rule, or Street Vector Layer which has special rendering for tunnels.

There will potentially be other special flags for segments besides Tunnel, so I need a design that will be able to include them when the time comes...

What other special flags are you thinking may come into play?

Given the number of scripts I already use, and given the comment regarding CPU usage for Street Vector Layer (I didn't know about it; just looked it up after you mentioned it above), I'm not sure that would be a good solution. I suppose a custom regexp in Validator could be used if I can figure out what the road type is (and how to set those up again - been a while :D ), but honestly I'd much rather see Color Highlights do the job. So if you can't think of a color for a checkbox, how about considering the dashed color like I mentioned above for toll roads? :)

See??? I'm not the only one who wants it as a checkbox! :mrgreen:

(Sorry ;))

More than likely to ensure roads that are to be set as tunnels are and to do random spot checks after it. So very little.

Same with toll roads. By now, it's used more to ensure roads aren't actually set to toll by accident.

Purple, if I recall correctly, is that there is at least one turn restriction set based on time of day.

Someone else will have to answer if it can be turned off. :)

Ok, so what makes a speed limit "verified?" So far, I've found roads that have no speed limit data in them at all. So what's the difference between a road having a speed limit and a "verified" speed limit?

So as long as the prediction algorithm hasn't ran yet in your country, it's normal that you won't encounter any unverified speed limits.

Oh ok, thanks. Yeah, to the best of my knowledge, it hasn't run in the US yet (or at least not in Nevada :D)

How does the script know the difference? And, does it show up differently in the WME interface some way? If it had run here and I selected a road segment, how would I know that the speed limit in the box was entered by the algorithm and not another editor? This info may be detailed somewhere and I just missed it, in which case feel free to point me to where that kind of information is detailed. :)

Oh ok, so something like that will appear. Currently where I am, all we have is blank and no checkbox. So at least now I'll know what to watch for when it happens. :) Thanks!
