Dreams Bugs šŸœ

With such a huge suite of creative tools, you may encounter occasional bugs in Dreams. Itā€™s really helpful for us to hear about them! If you discover an issue in Dreams, please check to see if anyone else has reported the issue before and if someone has, comment on it with your experiences. If not, post a new bug report here!

Hereā€™s some top tips to help us track down your bug as quickly as possible:

ā€¢ Give us a brief, clear summary of the bug. If necessary let us know what you think should be happening that isnā€™t.
ā€¢ Let us know the exact steps we need to follow to recreate your bug. For example -
ā€œLoad game > go to create mode > search for banana > stamp ā€œsuper cool bananaā€ > the banana didnā€™t load!"
ā€¢ If possible it really helps if you can include a screenshot or video of the problem.
ā€¢ Let us know the release version of the game ā€“ you can find this by having the Dreams icon highlighted on the Playstation homescreen, pressing ā€œoptionsā€ and then ā€œinformationā€. The bit we want is the Version number!

  1. Comments problem after the 2.07 update

    It only got worse now after the 2.07 update!

    As a temporary solution to the famous reply problems,before, I(and many others) wrote the name of the user with @ for him to be notified to be mentioned on a comment ect...Now(2.07) that some restrictions have been applied to the comments,and for example some user names have repeated characters ect...You cant even do the ultra legit @ trick to the replies that Mm itshelf has implemented to the game!

    Photo example:

    I cant even write the name of the user because he is called applestrudel1 and the system recognises this wordingā€¦

    Hi there, Galactic_Imp86!

    Thank you for getting in touch. I was wondering if you could possibly provide us with some additional information about your issue; the message you tried to post, did it only include that @’d user or was is the text included in your second image?

    As correctly mentioned by other users below, 3 or more repeated characters, or words/phrases that contain profanities will issue you this warning message.

    Many thanks,
    Monica C.

  2. 2.07 comment timeout

    Currently there is no indication you cannot yet post a comment until you've finished writing it. This means you could spend a while wording the comment well, things like that, only to find you have wait 2 more minutes before actually posting it. Which means you have to cancel out and lose the comment you'd carefully prepared, or sit there for 2 minutes trying to post it now and then hoping you'll be able to move on with your life.

    Really not a friendly way to implement this for legitimate users. Presumably just an oversight, but one that's salt toā€¦

    Hi there TAPgiles!

    Thank you for reaching out about this issue. The 2 minute timer starts from when you press “post” on the first comment, and it is intended functionality that the warning message appears when posting. Thi measure was implemented to prevent spam.

    Many thanks,
    Monica C.

  3. Hovering over the group option resets number

    Hovering over the group option sets the number of grouped objects to shows zero visually.

  5. Completed "aura" imp quests show wrong icon in "My Imp Quests"

    Completed "aura" imp quests (Art for Apple, Curate for Costa etc.) show the locked icon instead of their imp reward. The imp rewards for completed aura imp quests are still available to be used, and the quests still appear under the correct filter - completed - in My Imp Quests. The only problem is the icon.

    Hello EternalDarknessz,

    Thanks for this post. There is a ticket for this in our database already.

    You can still access these options by going to you
    profile and selecting your creations and the options to archive and delete should be present on the right side of the text entry box.

    However we did allow players to have access to these options when going through Dreamshaping.

    This issue should be address in an upcoming patch.

    Hope this information helps.

    Cheers,
    Mark M

  7. Move controllers no longer working

    My move controllers don't work anymore (they did in early access)! They work fine using them to navigate the PS4, but seem broken when I try to use them in Dreams. Camera is fine, and they are definitely in front of the camera.

    When I try to reset them using the start button, I can hear the "swish" sound as normal, but still can't see them. When in edit mode and I open the menu using the left trigger, I can hear it opening and sometimes I can even see the menu if I move the controller in a certainā€¦

  8. Intermittent issues changing grip points via move controllers (PS3 Moves)

    Since the latest full release update I have intermittent problems trying to change grip. Pressing the circle button also scales the object and the two settings seem to be fighting each other. Change grip flickers on and off as does the scale setting, however, sometimes it works better than others, but the whole thing is 'off' compared to early access. Even when it does work, it can throw the imp miles from the object and it becomes challenging. Not intuitive anymore at all.

    I am using the PS3 Moves and have swapped both over to function as the off hand.ā€¦

    Hello FourteenInchGaz

    Sorry that your having problems with the Motion controllers.

    We have had a few reports of the behaviour changing or being less responsive in regards to changing grip points.

    Were tracking an issue for this in our database.

    Thank you for the post

  9. Switch's "On/Off" button's short tooltip displays gadget name

    Create a Switch gadget. Tweak it, and hover the imp over the "On/Off" button. The "On/Off" text displays next to the imp as expected.

    Give the Switch gadget a name.

    Hover the imp over the "On/Off" button again, and observe that the gadget's name is displayed overlapping the "On/Off" text. This only happens in the short tooltip above the button prompts, not in the longer tooltip that appears in a black box on a long-hover.

  10. Creations you are following, contain creators too!

    From the beginning of dreams i waited for some way to divide the Dreamers i follow to Dreams i follow!
    While i was checking the new Dreams shaping appearance i was happy to notice that there is a special tab called "CREATIONS you are following".

    I later found out that this is the same thing as in dream surfing!I want some way to have my followed CREATIONS only,in one place! Please consider that option!

    Since it is named "CREATIONS you are following" i consider it a bug!

  11. Side menu refresh delayed until imp leaves active hover area

    The side menu items seem to have a problem refreshing or sending signals during the time the imp is hovering.

    Example 1.
    In settings turn the "more info" prompts on.
    Now hover over a side menu item.
    Wait until the pop-up shows up.
    It doesn't happen.
    Now stop hovering over the icon.
    Notice how the pop up opens now that you stop hovering.

    Example 2.
    Hover over a side menu item like "hide everything else"
    Click it to toggle its mode.
    Notice how the scene changes but the ui icon does not indicate the change.
    When you stop hovering overā€¦

  12. Used Play Later button on indreams.me, but level never appeared in play queue

    Used Play Later button on indreams.me. Hours later, the level(Moutain Walk by Martinitydk) was still not present in my queue in Dreams.
    I checked indreams.me again, and was shown the "Remove" button, suggesting that it was still in my queue.

  13. Text displayer Sort Order maximum value

    This setting allows super high numbers that seem to bug out, as if going beyond the proper precision. For example, you can enter 9999999 and then go up 1, but not go down 1; you have to go down 2 by holding the decrement control. But some numbers below there also bug out, sticking to 2s, things like that.

    I'm guessing the upper limit just isn't being capped properly.

  14. Saving a new creation via Edit Source causes name and type prompt to not be displayed

    Create a new (element/scene) creation.

    Add an object to it, select it, and choose ā€œsave as new creation.ā€

    Choose ā€œEdit Sourceā€ for that new creation.

    You will be prompted whether to save your current creation. Choose Yes.

    The creation gets saved as a Scene, with the default name.

    I would expect to be prompted for a type and name at this point. Now the only way I can convert it into an element is by remixing it, meaning I have an extra file to deal with, which canā€™t be deleted because itā€™s been remixed.

  15. MAJOR BUG. It wont let me close out of anything with l1+o.

    Sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. Had this issue with multiple controllers including moves and ds4s. Very inconvenient. I have to actually click the x in the corner to close out. This is Any gadget, tweak menu, timeline. Pretty much any menu. Thank you for your hard work!

  16. I can't do anything after the tutorial

    I completed the intro tutorial and that worked fine, then when I get to the dreamsurfing page, it loads but i can't open ANY of the games. I press X, it makes a noise, and nothing happens. I restarted the PS4, rebooted my router, even reinstalled the game. Same deal. Completely unplayable! Should I return my disc or what?

  17. Mm Pick heart behaves strangely when rotating Mm picked Dreams in a collection and clips through creations in similar creations

    Steps to reproduce

    1) Edit a collection
    2) Find an Mm picked Dream
    3) Rotate it

    As seen in the attached picture ("Mm picks heart rotating wrongly.jpg"), the Mm picks heart does not keep its position relative to the Dream when rotated.

    Additionally, when Mm picked dreams are listed in Similar creations (and possibly genealogy) the Heart icon of the backmost Dream will show through the creations in front as seen in the other attached picture ("Mm picks heart clipping.jpg").

  18. Fog density slider increments at 0.25, and displays at 0.1

    This can look weird when incrementing. pressing "up" will change it like so: 0.00, 0.25, 0.50 0.75, 1.00...

    But it will appear to change like so: 0.0, 0.2, 0.5, 0.7, 1.0

  19. Ruler with 10,000m dimension: "edit cancelled, would make object too big"


    • Place a new ruler.

    • Edit one of the dimensions to be 10,000m: the maximum allowed length.

    Deleting, undo deletion, or redoing deletion produces the message in the title of this post.
