I have a feature request for this script. Where the color of the number in the script will change to reflect the prompt given based upon angle & road types. So lets say the numbers will turn Purple anytime a prompt would be "Turn Right/Left" or the number would turn Green for "Exit to Right/Left" for Freeway to Ramp & Blue for "Stay/keep to Right/Left" for Freeway to Freeway

I believe it refers to non-soft turns.

I agree that the page is not complete. For instance, the best continuation can never have an angle of deflection of over 45 degrees.

As far as the "T-junction and one-way roads" section goes, I don't know what a locked node is at this point. I have never come across a T into a one-way segment that did not give a turn instruction. This is actually quite frequent as it happens not only at Ts into one way roads but also at every T into a split road.

And I'm not sure that it's all correct, either; I believe this section is not correct.

A simple TR (turn right), KR (keep right), CS (continue straight), and ER.... and so on would be useful to remove doubt from the process.

Well, it depends on more than simply the angle... it's rather complex, depending also on road types, road names, and the other segments. It's not something we editors are fully aware of.

Thought the logic was captured in the wiki here. Are there extra rules?

[farnsworth]Good news, everybody![/farnsworth]

I've been following this discussion but as Tampermonkey would for some reason cause issues with WME, I wasn't able to try manually loading anything. Apparently the "official" versions of both Toolbox and Junction Angle Info were updated since the last time I fired up the editor, and are now working correctly!

That kind of sucks, because the browser add-ons usually get disabled by default when the URL:s they run on changes (a nice security measure yes, but inconvenient for users). But thank you for the notice. I'll fix that and try to make translations work also asap.

Yeah, but at least this one seems to be at least somewhat permanent. It happened alongside big changes to the website and also to permalink parameters.

On the plus side, the locale is now part of the permalink string, so "https://www.waze.com/editor/*" and "https://editor-beta.waze.com/editor/*" should cover it for the foreseeable future however it must be formatted, without the bit which I assume is there to cover the old /na/ /row/ etc.

Confirmed working in the beta now :)
