I really dislike the drakes too and people typically only buy those and display them to be annoying such as at portable skilling spots or other crowded locations.

People paid money or purchased bonds to get those so Jagex can't really just make them invisible. I wish they could but just won't happen.

Just do what I do, zoom in as much as possible so you get them out of your way. Let the people who want to be a pain in the butt do their thing.

Thanks for your support Draco. Taking your messages into consideration I feel my suggestion has something to say, otherwise you wouldn't engage so vigorously. ;)

It still eludes me as to why but whenever a thread with "drakes" and "toggle", "hide" or simmilar stuff appears it always sparks such a heated for a lack of a better word discussion.
I can understand people that buy a pet want other to be able to see them, I myself am guilty of this after all. What I can't understand however is why people get so extremely defensive when others are experiancing problems from something and are asking for a solution that doesn't effect you in the slightest. They aren't asking for the removal of the damned thing, they just want an option to not have to see it. Would it honestly be such a pain for you that you can't force others to have to see some thing that in the end adds nothing other than being fancy.
A toggle option would be a reasonable solution. You can still use your pet people that have no issues with it can still see it and people that have problems with it, be it medical or technological, will not. At the end of the day everyone can play the game they enjoy in a way they enjoy it most.

The fact that there are people whose pet purchase decision was influenced by the knowledge of everyone seeing the pet, with no toggle to hide it, is alone reason enough to not do a toggle, because there isn't any mandatory reason to make it. Somebody not liking the sight of the pet isn't a mandatory reason, or else people would request all kinds of silly toggles under the sole reason that they don't like something.

Then there's the technical side: the more toggles you add, the messier the interface becomes to use, and the more complicated it is to fix certain bugs, because some bugs might only surface when you have certain toggles set up on a specific way. If you compare RS3 and OSRS interfaces, RS3 has a lot of clutter that isn't really needed, and sadly OSRS has begun adding some too thanks to mobile. Consider the future, since everything adds up.

The reason they bought it was because they were told Whatusaytome wanted to see it? Sorry, that's not what I read in the description, and I certainly never agreed to that, so I'd like my right to say no.

And I'd like you to stop acting like me turning my toggles off is affecting your decision in buying a useful tool.

Me personally being able to see it was never an influence in your reasoning behind buying the pet. If it was, you bought it for the wrong reason.

Should you expect a refund? No, Why would anyone do that?

Why would you want to return your purchase because of somebody else? You didn't buy it for yourself?

Why would you waste your money buying a pet that only you can own if it's for somebody else and they don't want it?

Should you expect a refund? No, you saw an advertisement and got sucked in, and you feel entitled to more than you paid for. And you just can't accept that other people don't appreciate what you did with that decision you made.

Just because you dont like something isnt a reason for a disable feature.
