It it possible, or is there a mod, that allows you to hide zoned buildings only. This used to be a an option in Simcity 3000, which was great for adding/finding subways, busstops and other government buildings/parks.

I have searched high and low but all I can find was "No", but maybe someone knows a trick or mod?

FYI: I know about the zone view using the dataview, but this hides all structures...

I wondered this myself for a long time, but stopped playing simcity 4. Else I'da asked it myself. – Ender Feb 6 '13 at 11:14

There is no way to hide the zoned buildings. Instead, you can use the dataviews to find the buildings you want. This includes:

  • Traffic : (note there are bus and train subviews)
  • Police
  • Fire
  • Education
  • Health
  • Power
  • Water
  • Garbage

Yep, the dataviews. It still doesn't just show whatever you want. If only it would highlight every busstop, or subway, like it does with the other dataviews... – Hendrik Beenker Feb 6 '13 at 22:46
Viewing traffic by volume, then selecting "bus" or "subway", can help with that. But definitely would be nice to get even finer detail. – AlexMA Mar 3 at 0:34
