Papyrus editor section in Known Issues wiki

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Mon Aug 15, 2011 4:31 pm

Using all my Monday-morning-wazing-when-I-should-be-working-for-the-man powers, I started a new section of the Known Issues wiki page specific to the new editor. I have also added in known functionality gaps (compared with the Cartouche) because there are occasional questions asked about those, too.

Please be a community and help keep this page updated. As with all known issues, only multiple-users-verified issues should be posted.

Edit (dmcconachie): I've created the shortened url http://bit.ly/WazeIssues for easy linking from other posts! Note that it's case-sensitive!

Good work, Alan.

Small spelling mistake on "ztatus" though.

Can you add that Map Problems are not currently available on world server?

You can still break editing permission locks on segments by moving a junction the segment is attached to (assuming you can edit said junction). Yellow "add intersection" sign is really picky about both roads having to be on the same level (makes sense), so I wonder if the reports of problems are due to that.

1. True. That can be added.
2. That is by design. If two segments are at a different level, by definition they do not intersect and a junction would be impossible.

However, if any reverse-allowed connections are enabled, they are not disabled.


What's a "reverse-allowed" connection?

You can see this only in Cartouche with Highlight Connectivity turned on. You will see perhaps a one-way road which shows orange and green connectivity in the same direction. It suggests that a turn is allowed against the 1-way direction of the segment. I see this on split roads a lot.

Here is an example picture showing a green light from the selected segment "backwards" into the previous 1-way segment.

Ah, OK. I didn't know those had a special name. I guess they do now. :)

I'm just wondering if some of the issues reported with the "create an intersection" were due to not checking that both roads were on the same level. About the only time I've had problems with it is when saves are taking a long time and visibility of my previous changes take a minute or so to show up after the save commits (replication delay).

I'll note that on the page. Good idea.

Don't see a way to enable the landmark layer in Papyrus, neither a known issue about it on your page in the Wiki.
