Here is the screenshot (you can see a glimpse of Sagat's statue there)
But you can't just download the mod and then straightly put the pak file into your game, you must do some additional works first. You need to unpak the mod, then find the file BOS_Gimmick.umap and BOS_Lighting.umap then delete them, and finally you can install the mod again with MM or PMM.
I take the extra time to change the preview image (made by KrizmKazm), UI text & sound (so that when you select the stage it doesn't say "Frosty Boulevard), and also the BGM as well (you will hear City of Chaos BGM instead).
UPDATE1: includes Skies of Honor UPDATE2: includes Frosty Boulevard & Temple of Ascension UPDATE3: includes Temple Hideout UPDATE4: includes Flamenco Tavern UPDATE5: includes Suzaku Castle, Metro City Bay Area, Ring of Pride "CPT 2017" and also Ring of Destiny "CPT 2016" (because there are some files updated for that stage)
Just a little mod for "Ring of Destiny" stage that remove those NPCs on ring side (the crowds are still there). And also remove the blueish foggy lighting (similar to what you see on cornweigh's Sunny Days mod).
MM and PAK mod version are available, pick them which installation method you prefer. There are couple of mod variants you can choose, AIO (both features) or separate (can pick whatever feature you like).
UPDATE: v1.3: Turns out there is a hidden Gimmick file that enables the MultLUT_TAI, so I disable it. v2.4: The lighting file is updated in patch v2.040 (file size is different), so I update the mod.
CREDIT: cornweigh, for his FuckLasVegas and Sunny Days mods which I get the info on how to make this mod. BrutalAce, for his initial idea to remove those unnecessary NPCs and providing me with some 4K custom angle screenshots to showcase this mod.
NOTE: For the "Night Version" of the mod, go check this post instead.
I like the Sunny Days mod very much when cornweigh first released it some times ago, and I still use it until now. I am not sure why cornweigh abandons the mod or why he doesn't come here anymore (his last activity is about 2 months ago), but I can't wait until he returns here and fixes/updates this mod of his for further game updates. During patch 1.09 (the release of Urien DLC and stage KO feature), it actually broke the Sunny Days mod for some stages like AFB, CHN, KZK but the worse is LVS (until months later I managed to fix it myself, similar fix also applies to CPT stage above). Then several DLC stages come along like RU2, DBI and recently S01 & S05. So until cornweigh decide to come back and works on Sunny Days mod again later, I decide to take over the mod for now (just like his Fewer Gimmicks mod).
UPDATE3: Adds the three new stages from patch v2.040 (Suzaku Castle, Metro City Bay Area and Ring of Pride "CPT 2017") and also updates several stage lighting files as well (not sure what Capcom change).
UPDATE2: Updates AFB, KPB & LVS as those stages now come with some new animations UPDATE3: Adds Ring of Pride "CPT 2017" stage
It includes all stages except these below: - Estate At Noon, Shadaloo Base At Night, Skies of Honor, Temple of Ascension, Suzaku Castle & Metro City Bay Area --> nothing to remove - Ring of Destiny / CPT 2016 stage --> see this post here instead - Flamenco Tavern --> see the known issue below
For some stages, there are two separate version as explained below: Forgotten Waterfall & Mysterious Cove - the regular edition (remove the lone sheep AKA Mokomoko and the flying birds) - no waterfall edition (similar as the regular edition, but also removes the waterfall and its sound as well)
High Roller Casino - the regular edition (removes the NPCs) - no crowd edition (similar as the regular edition, but also removes the crowds and its cheering ambient sounds as well)
Kanzuki Beach - the regular edition (removes the human NPC, all animal are intact) - no wave edition (similar as the regular edition, but also removes the sea wave)
Known issue: 1. In AFB stage, the fighter jet always has the shooting animation all the time. Also the little compartment door (the one supporting the ladder) is little weird too. Can't fix those stuff (already spent many hours trying to fix. no luck).
2. In SX1/SPN stage, there are four NPC mobs go into T-pose static mode when I disable them (see the screenshot here), can't fix them as well so I decide not to include the "Flamenco Tavern (Spain)" stage into the list.
DLC & Alt stages replaces Skies of Honor (Airplane Stage): This mod pack includes some grounded stages to replace this stage with. Extra credit goes to robhal's training stage replacement mod which I edited to make this. Download here!
Rob, this man right here, tell us the truth, you're no man, at all, aren't you? From which dimension do you come? Are you a servant just like your waifu? This speed is not something normal have, lol.
I'll answer here the other question I did, about the online and challenges. I had some trouble with fiery city and the other Lair of Four Kings that had Sagat online, I think it's 'cause they don't have the stage 'transition', so whenever a round'd end with it, it'd disconnect. Don't know if the was adressed with your new updates. And about the weekly challegens, thought so. Thanks for answering and taking this hellish amount of work.
Really, thank you! - Firkraag, that avatar is so nice, is so Mika, I love it. Nice one, man!
fvckbringer The Fiery City of Chaos stage mod I posted above isn't replacing the regular City of Chaos (which has the stage transition) but it replaces the Frosty Boulevard stage (the DLC one which doesn't have the stage transition), so are you sure that you select the right stage?
As for LofK with Sagat one, I test the mod in VS CPU mode and it works fine with both side (left and right) stage transitions.
I don't play online very much (infact it's rare) so I can't say much on the online side.
