Please turn ON the soft turn check for Italy, too.

And pleas note that here in Italy for city duplicates we use the "SmallCity, BigCity" syntax. With a comma as a separator.

I'd suggest just correcting the Wiki into:
wiki wrote:Roundabouts have few principles:
The first one, each node on the roundabout can only be connected to no more than one outgoing segment.
Off course, if I am right. Just thinking of. Because I can only image any ambiguity, if two outgoing paths were possible from a roundabout's junction node.

berestovskyy, could you please enable this checks for the IT country?
  • BETA: Lowercase street name
  • BETA: Two-way Freeway segment
  • City name on named Ramp
  • City name on Freeway
  • Incorrect Freeway lock level
    Must be at least 5
  • Incorrect Major Highway lock level
    Must be at least 5
  • Incorrect Minor Highway lock level
    Must be at least 4
...and maybe add a new alert for "Street name contains a dot"?

Official guidelines and/or wiki on the lock level are not ready (yet). If you absolutely need a link to a reference please temporarily use http://docs.wme-tools.com/ for all, at least until the rewrite of the documentation will be done by our local champs.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that the only road type that can have dots in the name is "Ramp" (because we use TTS abbreviations) and it must be one-way. All other road types must be checked.

If you want you can add a more strict check on the abbreviation, but it's not a small list (see here).
But I do not know if it's worth it.

berestovskyy wrote:Validator localize links, problems and how-tos. For instance, hover you mouse over the "New road" note in France (permalink) and in Slovakia (permalink). In France you get localized description and link:
"Création de segment incomplète ville et nom de rue non renseigné wiki"
In Slovakia you get the default:
"Each segment must minimally have the Country and State information wiki"

While it's OK to have the default message for "New roads", IMO some checks (like abbreviations and locks) always must provide local information, so editors know what should be locked and how to abbreviate streets.
Ok, if I understand correctly what you need is an italian translation of the brief message for the hover text AND a link to the wiki.

If this is the case, here is the translation:
  • Incorrect Freeway lock level
    Autostrada: Livello di blocco insufficiente, deve essere almeno 5
  • Incorrect Major Highway lock level
    Superstrada: Livello di blocco insufficiente, deve essere almeno 5
  • Incorrect Minor Highway lock level
    SS/SR: Livello di blocco insufficiente, deve essere almeno 4
  • Street name contains a dot
    Il nome della strada non può contenere un punto
For the wiki link use http://docs.wme-tools.com/ for all.

Apparently you have lots of abbreviations with dots, so I'm not sure if you need this 'Street name with a dot' check at all :lol:
No, sorry, my fault, the list I linked contain the TTS abbreviations; forget it, it's deprecated.
Generally, the rule is: street names (all types except Ramps) cannot contain a dot.
Ramps can have it, but only if the word is: "Dir.", "dir.", "Var." and "var."

Thank you for your patience and forgive me for the confusion, can happen when things are done in a hurry.

There is a roundabout in Bratislava, SK, which has just one connecting road (it is actually a dead-end or cul-de-sac road, but never mind for now) and one more junction at its opposite side (possibly created using JNF, or manually... who knows, it is nearly two years old).

Validator reports "Inconsistent roundabout direction - #49 The adjacent roundabout segments have different directions." This is actually a false positive - both segments of the roundabout have a correct direction (anticlockwise, consistent with driving on the right-hand side). It was possibly triggered by the detail, that both segments go from node B to node A, but in such case the reported problem should be rather something like "The roundabout segments' direction is B->A, which might be believed to possibly cause harm to the instructions"?

In some cases, when a segment need to be locked to a specified level (like this one, in Italy freeways must be locked at level 5) the script correctly highlight the street if it's locked at level 4 or less. But if the segment is force-locked at 5 by the Road Rank it's impossible (except for level 6 editors) to change the lock level, because in the combo box there is only a single choice, and WME do not save back the property if it is unchanged.

I think there are two solutions: (1) don't highlight the segment if the RR is high enough or (2) force in some ways the update of the lock level of the segment, maybe moving it back to level 1 and then to level 5 (or every other "creative" ways you could find) :-)

Obviously not only for freeways, but for all the street types that need a specific lock. ;)

Is it possible to have a check added to the main script for one-way roads that have either no way to get in to them, or no way to get out? While going over many areas, there's a lot of people who seem to have left newly created roads as one way only, and it always ends up causing routing problems.

For example, a one way a to b road where the A connects to the larger street network and the B is an endpoint of the road, or connects into a set of other roads with no other outlet.

Hi, first I'd like to say thank you for this extremely useful tool. There is one tiny thing I personally don't really like.
I don't know how many fans are there for the current tool layout and appearence, but I would like to see it in a TAB like many other useful scripts. If we have two camps of fans, would it be possible to make that a configurable setting ?
Thanks!
