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. You can also setup three favourite keymappings to quickly hide or show gameplay items in-game.

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.

do these actually keep the objects from being rendered or just make them invisible after the fact? thanks in advance for any input

CaptainAnonymous: It would be pretty simple to create the mod to do it.
CaptainAnonymous Jan 13 @ 1:05pm 
Ooops I meant TM:PE
CaptainAnonymous Jan 13 @ 1:04pm 
Thanks for your replies! I already have TP:ME though and can confirm it only clears vehicles and not cims.
Keallu  [author] Jan 13 @ 12:58pm 
CaptainAnonymous: You will need a mod for that. TM:PE can clear traffic. I'm not sure if it can clear all citizens.
CaptainAnonymous Jan 13 @ 12:55pm 
@Keallu Ok Thanks. So how do I remove them all as you said?
Keallu  [author] Jan 13 @ 12:52pm 
CaptainAnonymous: You cannot hide them but it will be possible to remove them all and wait for them to spawn again. But not for this mod :-)
CaptainAnonymous Jan 13 @ 12:48pm 
Is it possible to hide cims with this mod? I like taking screenshots and I want to take some without my cims walking around. Ive been looking everywhere to figure it out.
