Brainstorm Construction Mechanic - Bulldozing the landscape or respecting mother nature?
The problem is if tunnels are added to the game, a tunnel going under a room or another tunnel could be hidden by the space above it. My idea is that you hide all levels above the one the player is currently viewing to prevent an obstructed view, but that all levels below are still visible like they are now.

For example, you are currently viewing the top level of your dungeon, this view looks almost exactly like the current view does. Now, let's say you built a tunnel under a store room, and get a message that a fight's breaking out near there, so you want to see what's going on and if reinforcements are needed, but you can't get at that tunnel because the store room keeps getting in the way, and all the objects in it keep blocking your view of what's happening in the tunnel. So you use the depth view setting to change to level 4, so now levels 1, 2 and 3 are all hidden, so now the store room no longer blocks your view or intercepts actions intended for the tunnel below (such as placing the rally flag in the store room, when you really want it in the tunnel 3 levels below the store room.

Similarly, having the ability to hide lower levels could also come in handy, to reduce the "noise" of seeing too many levels stacked on top of each other, something that if no controllable could get very confusing in a large dungeon with many levels stacked on top of each other.
