What is the best way to suggest updates/changes to the code?

I looked at the script and saw a couple of items that could easily be changed to speed things up a bit. I profiled them and the speed-up isn't very large, but the changes are minimal.

Hi,

the 15m-limit under which the routing never does a U-turn is easily forgotten when splitting roads. Therefore, highlighting segments of less than 15m would be a good idea.

Best regards,

We just had two cases with no turn at 13m, so 15 seems safe to warrant a u-turn.

Is it a common practice to reduce the width like this? We do this only for a real bow-tie...

Anyway, we are moving away from the purpose of this thread 8)

It's always been common practice to reduce H-type intersection lengths to avoid u-turns. As far as I know 15m is only confirmed for NA server. For ROTW server it has to be 10m, unless this changed recently.
Maybe it's country-related. In Germany, we have just found two cases where 13m were not enough.

Best regards,

Detlev

I inquired through the staff, and got the answer that 15m or more should work, and below it depends on "many complicated thresholds". So, highlighting intermediate segments below 15m would be a good function for the highlighterscript.

Best regards,

You need to install Tampermonkey, then the Highlighter City. It is not fully packaged like the standard highlighter and the current Chrome executes it only through Tampermonkey - which is a minor nuisance for me.

Best regards,

Is there any intent to allow highlighting PRs with no speed limit? Or can this be added?

Lucky Tim... it's Feature Request time!

I wonder if you might consider a "full time highlight" (checkbox on the upper left, as opposed to the road type dropdown, which is more of an itinerant usage) to indicate Unpaved -- and maybe Tunnel -- segments, perhaps with a stroke style acting as an overlay? This way, it could be left on full time, while freeing up the road type box to do the usual madness. Especially since these traits can be applied to most/all other road types now.

Please give it a thought.
Thanks!
