[Script] WME Color Highlights - 2.33 Sept 2020

Post by
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.

We've discussed this before and decided not to. Revcon and Selfcon are not exactly big errors and seeing them on the map usually makes editors go all q+w all over the map and destroy valid turn restrictions.

What does this represent?
I'm not totally sure, but I believe that dotted/dashed lines signify an alternate name. So Orange dashed would be a No Name alternate name, which can likely be deleted as it serves no purpose.

I can't see the details on the world server, but I do see the dashed line. Tim? :)

FYI, this segment needs to be fixed. It makes a "loop" but it's a single segment which wraps back on itself with only a single junction. It should be straightened out and made into multiple segments. Also, why are there so many restricted turns on the roundabout there?

Sneaky sneaky.

Is that different than the feature which disallows routing on short segments (10m) to prevent u-turns?

The script already highlights locks based on the road rank (if not locked) or the user rank (for locked segments). Are you asking that there be a selector for minimum locking level?

It doesn't do that to me. It is working well highlighting the PLRs in purple.
