I know, I know. It's been done. But it didn't meet my needs. When Buzzler first started working on his Vanishing Objects Script mod ages ago, I was excited to be able to use it for parking spaces. Well he went in a different direction than what I wanted by requiring user interaction to make things invisible so I did without. Well I finally got sick of looking at the games driveway and I decided to make my own. So if your lazy like me and just want the driveway to automagically disappear, then maybe this mod is for you.

What it does
This mod will make your parking space/large parking space be visible in build/buy mode and invisible in live mode - with no user interaction required! Just put it in your Mods/Packages folder and the next time you place your driveways, they will disappear in live mode!

This is a default override! The package contains just the OBJK of the Parking Space, Large Parking Space and the dll. If you want this as an independent object then you want to download GiveTheNineARide's Invisible Driveway.

Note: You must re-buy any driveways placed after adding this mod as it only takes effect on newly purchased driveways.

Compatibility
Compatible with base game (1.42). The Large Parking Space comes with Ambitions, but was included in a base game update.

It should not conflict with Buzzler's mod or with GiveTheNineARide's driveway, but will conflict with any other mod altering the OBJK of parking spaces.

This may conflict with AwesomeMod. If your using AM please enable the option in your config.


Additional Credits:
Granthes (OMSP) and Buzzler (Vanishing Object Script and Pure Script Modding tutorial) for their mods so I was able to study their scripts to create mine.

Hi, I've used this mod for a long time now, but with the patch 1.48, the parkings are visible in live mode.
Is this mod still compatible?

I'm on patch 1.50. Working fine for me! Thank god. Ugly stripy bit ruining my nice driveway. Haven't used it on uni camp yet but I imagine it works fine there too.

Is there anything special I should be doing when uninstalling this mod?

After uninstallation I am unable to use the parking spaces (i.e. cars won't snap to the slot. And after I place the parking space on my lot, then buy a car the game tells me I must have a parking spot to place a car in. Almost like I didn't place the parking spot at all.

I'm actually going to put the mod back in (because it's awesome), I just thought I'd post in case anyone has trouble uninstalling.

Quick question; does this affect JUST the base game parking space and large parking space or does it also affect the new spaces that came with Uni and ITF?

Brilliant!
I have been using AM to make my parking spaces invisible but it is applied universally across the board meaning the Uni and ITF spaces which actually look fine also vanish.

I've been using the concrete parking barrier. I didn't realize you had an invisible one! This is perfect for my farms and orchards. Thank you! :D

"You must re-buy any driveways placed after adding this mod as it only takes effect on newly purchased driveways."

Do you mean before adding this mod as it only effects newly purchased parking spots?

Any parking spaces that already exist in your save will have to be repurchased after you put this mod in so that it actually affects them.
