It adds to and extends several mods being aroung for a long time such as No Purple Pullution, Remove Decoration Sprites ("Grass" and "Rocks"), Remove Dirt (Trees and Props), Clouds & Fog Toggler and others (see list in discussion), but my intention was to create a unified mod for hiding these and other elements from the game that simply bugs or annoys the player. I found myself using more than ten mods just to hide these things. Now I only need one mod!

Let me know if you want other things added to this mod in terms of hiding unwanted things from the game.

A lot of credit goes to the modders of earlier mods with similar functionality. I have taken alot of inspiration from them but most of the time rewritten and optimized the codebase.

Thank you to the amazing modding community and especially SamsamTS, TPB, boformer and BloodyPenguin for releasing the source code of their great mods so we can all be inspired.

Subscribe to the mod and select which elements you want hidden in Options.

This mod does use patching technique with the Harmony library[] but does not alter game save files in any way and can be disabled or unsubscribed safely at any time.

Known issues
  • Existing light effects are not hidden when hiding bus and tram stops, and street lights.
  • Existing parking spaces are only visually hidden. Cars will still park.

@sLurMz -- You can use Toggle It to hide district names.

Can we get an option to hide district names?

"Existing parking spaces are only visually hidden. Cars will still park."

This is incorrect in my cities, people will not drive to the parking lots at all. It is not the case that you simply cannot see the parked veichles, they don't use them period.

@ValskraaCapo -- I've always used this with BOB. I've never had a single issue.

What are some good alternatives to this mod. Apparently this mod causes issues with BOB

@Lemonster -- Ahh okay, thanks man.
It would be a cool feature to implement in this mod.
LemonsterOG May 25 @ 9:00pm 
@Temkkey -- You can do that too
Temkkey May 25 @ 11:43am 
@LemonsterOG -- They are not near water, but near my industrial area.

@Temkkey -- Are you wanting the trees near water not to look ruined? If so, you also need the No Radioactive Desert and More mod. The feature is the "and more" part. Do not use that mod's other features. Only use the feature to stop trees from ruining. Use Hide It for everything else.
