Compatible with Cities Skylines 1.11.1-f2 (Industries)

This mod allows to hide unwanted things in the game.

NEW IN 1.4

– Fixed bug with notication icons, district names and line borders coming back after using cinematic or free camera. – Added support for three favourite keymappings to quickly hide or show gameplay items in-game. – Added support for hiding bulldozer button. – Added support for hiding district policy icons.

NEW IN 1.3

– Added support for hiding seagulls and wildlife. – Added support for hiding valid, warning and error colors for tools, also known as selectors.

NEW IN 1.2

– Added support for hiding ore, oil, sand, fertility, forest, shore, polluted, burned and destroyed areas (textures) which also means hiding shore (soaked) or polluted (dead) trees. – Added support for hiding camera border. – Fixed bug with cliff and sand texture was rendered incorrect when tiled.

NEW IN 1.1

– Added support for hiding ruining ("dirt") under trees and props. – Added support for hiding buoys on ferry paths. – Added support for hiding cinematic and free camera buttons.

Both graphical user interface components, gameplay, decorations, colors of ground and water and several effects can be hidden.

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.
