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. 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.

  2. Scaling tutorial bug makes it impossible to progress to create mode without wiping all dreams data from your ps4.

    Mm!

    Urgent QA message for the new Dreams tutorial!

    When I was going through the scaling home space editor tutorial my friend somehow made the rectangle disappear permanently and it won't respawn on restarting or resetting.

    Hear ye hear ye!

    Make a restart tutorial option or some other such fix you deem appropriate. Class A bug! Completely locks players out of create mode! šŸ””šŸ””šŸ””

    LOVE YOU MEDIA MOLECULE!

  3. Cant publish elements. Cant publish scenes. Cant publish dreams. Cant collaborate.

    Literally all of these things worked before early access ended and now none of them work. I am getting "private creations" errors when there are none, I am getting "publishing element failed" errors, my editing doesnt show in my friends scene even in update mode and I am a collaborator. It wont let me publish my dream because it says his creations are private but on his says they are all published fully and publicly. All game breaking. And worst of all, mm has all but ignored me and many others on the forums. If I cant publish my stuffā€¦

  4. blurred out view in create mode

    At some times when entering or (I think) exiting a scene, the screen goes into a blurry limbo. Here's a clip of it happening on Aecerts stream.

    https://clips.twitch.tv/BumblingRefinedLyrebirdPupper

    It also shows the fix for it, which is pressing the play button.

  5. Logic gets deleted when snapped to a sculpt far away.

    When moving a microchip with logic in (any logic it doesn't matter) if you snap onto an object that is far away by holding L1, you will get a prompt at the bottom of the screen saying 'Object deleted - centre was too far from origin'.
    This, as the prompt states, will delete the microchip. However when you undo, the chip will return but with none of the logic within the chip.

  6. Deleted element

    During EA there was a time period where created elements could be deleted without forcing the creator to simultaneously delete other scenes/elements that had said element in their respective genealogies which would lead to those scenes/elements unable to be published as public remixable later if the deleted element was private. For example in the creation ā€œSeeker SANDBOX legit af remixā€ scene which is as the name implies a remix (of IMPala SS SANDBOX) I am unable to make it remixable to other users as it contains private creations. If I select the option while saving ā€œSave and release this versionā€ā€¦

  7. I found two interesting bugs (maybe)

    Hello! I've been learning dreams and have found two interesting game bugs (from what I can tell).


    1. When saving a creation with emitters, the object the emitter is supposed to emit doesn't save with the creation. For instance if I save a cannon that shoots cannon balls, when placed in a creation from my creations, the cannon ball would'nt carry over, id have to save the cannon and cannon ball before connecting the emitter to the cannon ball and connect them after placing from my creations.


    2. When trying to delete a saved creation like an object or character, if theā€¦

  8. Painting grouped with Sculpt wonā€™t move

    If I select a Painting and a Moveable Sculpt and Group them, even with the Group itself set to Moveable, wonā€™t allow the Painting to move.
    If I grab the Painting, hover over the sculpt and press L1+X to scope in that creates a group which does allow the Painting to move with the Sculpture.

  9. saving an object from a scene also causes everything in the scene to be saved with it as if it was a remix.

    i just wanna save 1 sound effect from a scene and for it to count as a sound effect element but after i do that everything else in the scene also gets added as if i remixed the scene when in fact i selected the sound effect and hit make local save.

    the sound effect i wanted to save as element from the scene was a custom recorded one.

    the scene was made in early access.

    if i do this in a new scene then it all works like normal.

  10. Alignment issue

    I have a character file with the character centered on the crosshairs of the ground plane guide but when I import it into a game it seems to be way off centre from my imp. It appears south westerly of it and lower than the ground plane. I thought that the ground plane of a character file and a game file should be aligned grid wise? And the imported character should not be an awkward distance from the imp for placement?

  11. Sound effect plays if šŸ…±ļø key is pressed on physical keyboard

    I have a scene that contains a looping sound effect with granular randomization and various other settings. If I hold the šŸ…±ļø key on my physical keyšŸ…±ļøoard it causes the sound to play even though editor time is stopped and the tweak menu is closed.

    I wasnā€™t able to get this to occur with any other sounds I stamped down. Deleting the sound and pressing undo caused this to stop happening.

    What could šŸ causing this? Perhaps some dešŸ…±ļøug shortcut that snuck into the final game? Well, šŸ…±ļø seeing you!

    Glad that information helped,

    The reason the prompt isn’t there via this flow is that your loaded into the scene in play mode not edit mode. Only in edit mode can the user hide and un-hide gadgets.

    I will raise an issue for that particular flow not clearly identifying which mode your in when going through the cover of a creation.

    Cheers

  13. Local grid and edit shape mode

    First off, for future reference, if we encounter bugs that we know were acknowledged during EA, but are not mentioned in the "known issues too late to fix for release" document, should we re-report them? Is that list comprehensive?
    https://docs.indreams.me/en/help/backwards-compatibility/known-late-issues

    Anyway, this is one such bug. As you can see in the video, I can't accurately edit the sculpts shape as it resizes when I leave edit shape mode.

  14. I canā€™t save creations.

    Whenever I try to save a creation (doesnā€™t matter if scene or element) the bar fills most of the way and stop. Then it says ā€œerror while savingā€ and itā€™s been this way for two days.

    Dreams also has really long loading screens when turned on. None of my other games are acting this way

  15. The Auto-Update feature for Collections and Dreams doesn't work properly

    I'm not sure if I'm the only one who has had this problem, but in my collections and dreams, I have every scene and element with the Auto-Update feature set to 'on'.

    However, whenever I edit one of my creations, then go to my collection or dream to view it, the previous version of it is shown, even though Auto-Update is on. I have to edit the collection manually and update it from there so that the latest version of the creation can be viewed.

    I had never experienced this problem during Early Access. This started happening after the fullā€¦

  16. stuck on the saving screen forever, cant quit cant move forward.

    stuck on the saving to my creations, all i did was make a change to a scene then i updated the scene in the dream map then i tried to save that but im stuck, i dont wanna quit the game while saving otherwise it will corrupt my local save... AGAIN, when my save gets corrupted its because of crap like this, not my fault.

    i had to quit the game just so i could play again but i shouldn't do that or cut the power while its saving.

  17. Can't delete element unless I delete the scene it came from?

    First, absolutely love this game. Got it a few weeks back. I've been making everything myself. So, I don't think my issue has something to do with private assets. Also, haven't used the prizes or anything else.

    I created a scene. So far only local saves, no online or release. I grouped certain assets from the scene and saved them separately as elements, so I can use them for a level later. Since then, I've revisited my elements, made changes, and now I think the scene is ready. One of my elements I decided to scrap. So I went toā€¦

  18. cant edit a scene thats been flagged as copyright to then change it so it wont count as copyright unless i remix it.

    if people are gonna make copyright stuff and dicks like Nintendo has to care enough to destroy something that people made and get it taken down due to copyright we should at least be allowed to edit it to make it no longer count as copyright instead of permanently being locked from editing it.

  20. Canā€™t scope into a Keyframe while in Sound Mode?

    Iā€™ve been confused for a week or so about why my keyframes sometimes randomly werenā€™t editable, and I finally realized it was because I was entering sound mode without realizing it. It would be nice if keyframes were still editable while sound mode is active, since there arenā€™t many other examples of sound mode changing the rules of editing.
