I believe a lot of players would appreciate if there would be a possibility to toggle visibility of certain pets of other players, such as drakes.

Those creatures are across half of game screen (which is way too oversized) and as they move their wings it is so annoying that it hurts my eyes. In fact I am unable to stay around such places with pet drakes even for a short time since it is too disturbing to my activities.

Therefore a choice whether we want to see certain pets of other players or not could solve this unpleasant feature of the game.

Please support if you share my feelings.

Update:
Should it help a realization, alternative solution could be a toggle to downsize flying forms of drakes to somewhere between 1 twentieth to 1 tenth of their original size. This would still remain them visible, yet it could greatly eliminate negative effects that arise from their current size.

No support, part of the reason why people acquire pets is because others can see them, so it'd be unfair for them to not be able show them to everyone around them. If you don't like company like that, you can hop worlds and/or switch locations (where applicable).

Additionally, it'd clutter the options interface even further (K.I.S.S.) and add extra work to QA to ensure that the game works with both it toggled on and off.

Those who choose to see them would still be able to. Contrary to that, players with drakes cannot make those who do NOT want to see them.

Also consider the weight of the arguments: lust for showing off vs delivering unpleasant experience to others.

Adding another option to a mess of options would do just that: deliver an unpleasant experience to others. The amount of toggles and other unnecessary options is already too high, and making it worse would be, well, even worse, surprisingly. Not to mention that because some pets are purchased with real money, people have already bought them under the premise that everyone will see them.

That's just your opinion. I think benefits would greatly outweigh possible cons.
