Disappearing imps in create mode?
Question real quick.
Is disappearing imps a know bug?
I'm not the one having the problem, a friend of mine is.
He just got back to Dreams as it launched.
He says they are like ghosts, like they are there but not visible.
And he said there is a video in YT about it so he's not alone having this issue
But as I didn't find any report here to vote up, I'm making my own.
And here's the YT video NOT from my friend, but someone else.
Cheers guys I love Dreams and I'd hate to see ppl turn away from it b/c of some silly bug.
We are really sorry to hear you are experiencing this issue.
It’s been bugged in our database and the team are looking at this.
For now, can you try the following steps:
The first step here is to back up your Dreams save data to a USB and send it across to us. This is super easy to do! Once you’ve got the save data, make a post on feedback.indreams.me and we’ll send you a link to our shared drive. Let us know once it’s there, and we’ll download it and will be able to begin investigating the issue on our end. (Once we’ve downloaded the data, we’ll remove it from the Drive).
Before proceeding further with this, if possible, we recommend saving any content you currently have online (either publicly or privately is fine!) This’ll mean it’s safe and you can retrieve it once completing step 3.
Note: This is providing you can still load them these creations without encountering the preload failed error message.
Once you have saved as may creations as possible online, you can proceed to the next step, which is to delete your Dreams save game. Thanks to the previous step, this isn’t as scary as it sounds – promise! That said, this is why it is vital that any locally saved creations or photos are saved online since any locally saved elements or photos will be lost when the Dreams save data is deleted.
Any creations saved online, as public, private or playable should still exist on the dreams server.
With the save data deleted, run Dreams and then try accessing each of your creations. If you still encounter any preload failed error message please get it touch with us via your original feedback.indreams.me post.
Let me know if this helps resolve the issue.

Hi there I just had this problem few minutes ago
I tried everything I know but I can’t change it.
Are you able to play now?
I don’t know why but that came with another problem: I cannot load my creations(even the preview) I can only play the current dream I’m making but it fails to save
I found on yt a video of a guy having the same issue https://youtu.be/Ke1Gl91-cnQ
The only difference with me is I can’t even see the preview of my creations
I've done that before (was forced to previously because I could not access any content the 1st time it happened) but it just happened again and luckily it "only" deleted everything I did today. I have uninstalled/reinstalled Dreams before previously to only have it happen again and this issue specifically happens with this game. I have definitely gotten better about cloud saving every little change I make but there has to be an alternative .
Most likely a problem with the save file or a hardware issue that is corrupting the save file.
I'd recommend uploading privately all the time as a backup--even if you're having no issues. And try "rebuilding the database." If that doesn't work, try deleting the save file and see if your imps work again (this will obviously delete your local saves).
I have a ps4 pro and I am creating with the move controllers if this helps. My imps disappear and my creations are not accessible. This is the second time this has happened. First time all of my creations where deleted that I was near publishing, this time just half. I've seen others complain about this but no answers or solutions are ever given. Can someone please address this

Thank you for reporting the issue and providing a video. We have been unable to reproduce this issue. Is it possible to tell or show us what imp you have selected or do you know if this happens to multiple imps?
I may have discovered why an imp disappears in create mode. I am not for sure but when I returned to my creation this morning, my imp was missing with start-up and in the creation scene I selected invisibility in the eye menu and there was static lines like around an imp protruding out of the character like the imp had been scoped into the character. Is that possible? Please help!
