If this seems useful to anyone, I'll put it up on the main server.

Love it :) :) :)

If there would be a checkbox "filter for same system" next to the dropdown, and the dropdown list would be reduce when it is on, the feature would be perfect! :)

Instead of further cluttering the window, how about the contents are organized by the ones in the same system at the top, ones in other systems below, with some sort of separator?

Also fine to me! Is it possible to add a line afterwards?

Why include routes from other systems at all?

^^

That doesn't deal with:
1) bannered routes being related routes - a system filter is too narrow.
2) Jim's main gripe that duplicate numbers (eg I-88) are not related routes - a system filter is too broad.

It's a misdiagnose of the problem to just whack a system filter on it. Hence my thread to try and get a consensus on what the feature is there for in order to get it restored in a productive way.

1) It doesn't deal with bannered routes in the context of usai <-> usaib and usaus <-> usausb. So I'll grant those cases, sure. I believe in all other cases bannered routes are in the same system as their respective parents. This, however, I see as running into the definition issue of "What's related?"
2) Not a problem. Incompletely filtering out some-but-not-all of the noise is better than filtering out none at all. Filtering by system may not get us all the way to where we want to be, but it can get us most of the way there.

the issue is the unrelated routes dragged in (and the related routes excluded by a filter).
1) is potentially related routes excluded by a filter.
2) is unrelated routes dragged in. We can at least tighten this up, even it by itself it doesn't solve the problem of #1.

Entries in the new dropdown menu are now grouped into those in the same system and those in other systems on tmtest.

Just FYI, the traveled/clinched routes page (https://travelmapping.net/shields/clinched.php?units=miles&u=the_spui_ninja&cort=traveled) doesn't link to the new showroutes. It's not that big of a deal, but I thought I'd bring notice to it.

Another FYI, the embedded maps in region.php and system.php still link to the old HB route display rather than showroute.

Waypoints table percentages

ISTR that before, percentages were based on the total drivers of the route, not the total number of site users.
With each segment being traveled by 18/19 travelers, the percentages would be 94.7% rather than 6.67%

Clicking on waypoints
Right now, clicking on a waypoint marker on the map will cause the map to pan a small amount before opening the popup. Thus right-clicking & opening an intersecting/concurrent route in a new tab results in a map at a different center point. Makes 1:1 comparisons in different tabs a little tougher. Before, it would only scroll if the popup were partially offscreen. I'd like to get the old behavior back.
(Was there some other discussion about this upthread or in another topic?)
