MAJOR BUG: will not let me publish my dream as it says there is a private asset somewhere.
I have a dream called "unfinished" and it is saying there is a private creation but I'm only trying to post as playable not public. Myself and the other collaborator made sure to go back and publish every single scene used. Please help.
This is clearly an issue with MM. They are the only ones with the power to make creation private once they've been public.
This is exactly what this all seems to me. They've possibly updated or replaced assets, and now your save is broken.
I just had the same thing, in my case it was a "Tall Cylinder" that I might've used in the past, but it was in a Microchip, so that doesn't make sense already. Now I can't publish a thing I made, and the issue is definitely on MM's side.
Speaking to Mediamolecule today, as I am having a similar issue and had a minor meltdown on Twitter and they informed me that with the new update, all prizes will be fully remixable, which should solve this issue for some of us,
The issue that anything that once contained a ‘private’ element will forever be tagged in any creation’s genealogy, even when explicitly removed, seems to be a bug that needs addressing.
I have a similar problem!
But I could identify it! I used on my very first scene a couple of Mm Items from the tutorial pack "Light and atmosphere" (I play the german edition, I hope its the right eglish name) because I though the Mm Items are safe. But now this pack is on privat! It's In the same scene I made my main character, so everytime I used it it has "infected" the next scene and all of it's versions. I can nothing make public that contains this charakter. I tried to deleate all Versions with the "infected" charakter/scene, But....there was another problem: Some of the versions are not erasable, because they are in the unerasable online save .
So I found the problem and the source, but the "infected" Scenes, and all the things in it, are not
So I lost all my work from the last weeks :( hundreds of hours are not publishable. I can nothing use what I have done before for other projects.
Please find a solution >< for example make the Source pack(s) publish again would help!
I hope there's a way to save the work of all peaople with similar problems U_U
I'm getting the same thing. https://youtu.be/ZbBEqWrIhTo
It says a banjo instrument (which had a MM label on it, BTW) is private. Fine. I replaced it (doesn't sound nearly as good with steel guitar and nylon string, but w/e) and lo and behold... Still gives me the error. Went through Genealogy and the offending instrument doesn't show up. Only shows up in the error message. Actually, I was having the same problem with prize bubbles, as it said some basic sculpts I made had private content not owned by me (and it said "owner - Bobtheduck" so I don't know who it thinks was trying to place those bubbles)
A possibly unrelated bug is the song preview refuses to change. When I do it, it snaps right back to the weird preview it had when I first made the file. The rubber band thing.
Same happened with me. This is the video of the bug: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QB0lsLC1jIE
There's no private prizes in my creation.
The steps i took to try and bypass it:
1 - Turn on the invisibility tool and delete any visible and invisible object besides the puppet itself.
2 - Delete the puppet from my scene as well, leaving it completely empty.
3 - Make a remix of the creation (when it contained the puppet only).
4 - Select my puppet and make a new creation from it.
5 - Deleted the puppet from the new creation and added a blank deluxe puppet.
6 - Selected a part of the sculpt of my puppet, scoped out with it (so it wasn't connected to the puppet anymore), and saved that sculpt part as a new creation.
Every one of those attempts led to the creation being unable to save because of the same cat and ruin private creations.
1 - I created a new dream, put these private MM creations there. I could not make the work public. then i deleted those creations from my dream. as soon as i did it, it allowed me to publish the dream.
2 - if i go to https://indreams.me/element/oFDTYjnbNsb (the creation i want to make public) and press "edit now". it opens a version that has both the ruin and the cat in it instead of the latest empty version i saved. Today i saved my creation as private and when i was opening it from the indreams page it opened the correct empty version, but of course without an option to release as public.
Please fix it, wonderful molecules! ( ͒ ඉ .̫ ඉ ͒)
Only problem is when I click the triangle with the exclamation point nothing appears and all of the sub scenes are released as public
I wrote about the same issue in a thread during early access (now archived).
Here is one of the examples I made a version of cuthbert and in a scene containing private creations (Mm prizes) I saved Cuthbert as a New Creation and even though Cuthbert isn't made from any private creations it is seen as such.

The now archived thread included other examples.

Please be assured that we are still looking into this. It is very important to us that we can identify what is causing this issue for you and we need your help!
Could you please provide us with a video which shows:
- Trying to publish the effected Dream in question.
- Use your Imp and press the X button on the triangle warning symbol on the Save Version/Release screen. It is to the right of where it says 'Can't release as PUBLIC'.
- The genealogy of the effected Scene/Dream, showing which elements are 'private'.
- Deleting private elements/prizes and trying to publish again.
It is also worth noting that a Dream cannot be published as playable if it contains private sub-scenes. If there are any sub-scenes in your Dream, they will need to be public also.

Huge problem. I already know 2 people that are done until they fix it and I'm getting more discouraged by the day. All of this started with full release. I just wish they would keep us updated on progress but I havent heard a word from them in 3 or 4 days.
I also have been getting this bug, I thought it was only dreams linked to a collaboration we made public but now it seems that a completely unrelated project says it has private stuff and it doesn't, anything with my cow sculpt in it either and everything in the geneology was public when you click the show private creation it shows nothing, these publishing bugs gotta get fixed theyre becoming a big problem
When I click the exclamation point, it shows nothing. Not even the game knows what assets are private on mine! Lol and it's been 3 days! No help so far but I was told they are looking into it!
Same thing is happening to me when I try to upload my Scenes. I have noticed that when I click the 'exclamtion box' for known private assets - Media Molecule's prize items from Art's Dream are to blame....me thinks the Mm prizes should be public?
Also is not showing anything when I click the triangle with the exclamation point that says show private creations. On any of the scenes or assets.
https://indreams.me/dream/mJpZydSxeQd this is the link but it keeps deleting it from the forum every time I post it
This is the dream that's not working. The levels are titled "tavern" "alchemists" "dockhouse" and now "manor". All of these levels should be published as public but its saying somewhere in all 4 of them is some private asset! Thank you so much! I will be waiting! :D
Um I will try I'm not sure how to send an indreams link. But I will try! And i actually got it published as unfinished2! Only 1 level is currently not working called "manor" but I'm going to work on getting it working after I get off work.

Would you be able to provide me with the indreams link to your creation? You can post it as private and send me that link and I can take a look for you.
I can understand your frustration and anyone elses who might be having this issue, but rest assured we are trying our best to find the cause for it so it can be bugged!
