So U turns will only be prevented where the segment is also useful as a left turn? That's interesting. I wasn't aware of the specific mechanics of the function. I like that.

I've had to widen a number of intersection segments to 15m to allow U-turns, and shorten some to 14m to disallow U-turns. 15m has definitely been the cutoff for me based on direct experience with making the changes and testing the results after a tile update.

The editor rounds the numbers, so when it says a segment is 15m it may actually be slightly less, and will actually prevent U-turn. If you want to be absolutely sure, make the segment 16m or more to allow, and 14m or less to prevent.

With the 11m segment allowing the U-turn, there may be some geometry issues. There may be no "straight" path out of the short segment, in which case any path out of it can be used for routing.

This is weird. I have done a few u-turn length at 10m and it works.

Edit:
This is one of the U-turn that is 10m in length that is working for me.

At 10m, one had might as well use an ugly bow-tie...

I've uploaded the beta version of this script to UserScripts.org for all Firefox Users. Version number upped to v1.7.4.
Chrome users should uninstall the old script (v1.7.1 or older) and get the new one from Chrome Web Store (v1.7.4).

Links in the first post (and in the Wiki) have been updated.

[Script] WME Color Highlights (2.4)

Postby Thangorodrim » Fri Nov 20, 2015 3:52 am

If there was a feature I could add to WME Color Highlights, it would be to add a large red (or other color of the user's choice) bullseye or halo (like the way Validator highlights segments) over filtered Place Points - something larger than the Place Point icon.

For example, I am working on changing "Greater XXXX Area" city names to just the city name, "XXXX." Because of the zoom level/layer refresh, Place Points do not always appear, or do not get highlighted in yellow as they should. So, Places that have the erroneous city names slip through the cracks, so to speak.

A highlighting tool like this would be, in my opinion, solid addition to the options available to editors.

[Script] WME Color Highlights - 2.22 Feb 2017

Postby Timbones » Tue Feb 19, 2013 10:04 pm

Here's my script which adds color highlighting to segments and landmarks according to their status and type. The highlighting of segments is likely to be most useful, for it shows locked and un-named roads (with many other features since the first version). Click on the link below to see full changelog.

:arrow: Firefox: Install WME Color Highlights* script at Greasy Fork (older versions here)
:arrow: Chrome: Install WME Color Highlights extension from the Chrome Web Store.

*Firefox users will need to install the Greasemonkey addon first.
