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.

  3. Text boxes displayed on screen bugs

    Here are some things I discovered to be misbehaving using on screen text displayers


    • Text handles shouldn't scale with the text because in the case of an icon such as the <X> button, when you make it really big you can't move it on the screen on either axis because the handles that scale take priority over movement as they are as big as the big icon itself.


    • Text box handles work, but won't visually show up when text is on top of another (think of a text over a background layer)


    • On a similar note, when you place someā€¦

  4. 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!

  5. 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€¦

  6. Edit source object bug?

    When I tried to edit a source object from a scene it was in, the game asked to save changes, but then didnā€™t take me out of the scene to edit the object. The screen went blurry but I could still move around and edit the scene. It wouldnā€™t let me pause and exit so I had to close the game completely.

  7. In-scene Text Displayer in Timeline moves when Timeline is placed into a Microchip.


    1. Create a timeline.

    2. Add text displayer to it and stretch its individual timing so it is visible for a period of time.

    3. Modify it so that it displays in-scene, and then place it where you want it to be located in the scene.

    4. Create a microchip.

    5. Move the entire timeline to the microchip.

    The text displayer should/may have moved within the scene to a new location. In my case, I had a text displayer on the ground in my scene, and it moved up and to the right quite a distance, deep within some scenery.

  8. My character is stuck inside a remix loop. I can't release my character as private or public anymore

    My friend made a private creation using my character, they added a logic chip to it and I took the entire thing and put it into my original creation and saved it as a new version.

    Since that creation is still private I can't release my character unless my friend release his private creation and he can't do that unless I release the latest private version of my character.

    So it's stuck and I can't release it as private nor public anymore.

    This is my character that's affected.

  10. Align to grid resizes shape

    I am trying to build something to scale. I am using cubes to draw out an outline as markers to set my sculpt scale.

    I select a sphere, stretch it to the number of segments at 1/4 grid scale that I want, retaining it's exact spherical shape. The intent is to then scale the object to fit my template.
    I go to 'align to grid' and the shape resets its size. It makes trying to make things with precision deeply frustrating.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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€¦

  14. a possible bug where it says +1% for GamePlay but the thermo never went up by 1.

    i copied an object then paste, the object could just be a default square but for some reason its adding +1% to gameplay when the object cant move and has no logic, is this normal?

    when i copy and paste it keep adding +1% to gameplay when its a clone, shouldnt only the first object count then the clones of it dont cost anything?

    i have 75% gameplay and a clone with no logic or anything related to gameplay and it still adds +1% to gameplay but it doesnt show as 76% like it should so as a clone itā€¦

  15. 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€¦

    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

  18. 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.

  20. Element Not Being Deleted; Deleted Element Uses Up 1% Gameplay or Graphics Thermometer.

    Before I start, I just want to note that this problem does not occur with all of my elements. It appears to be happening to only some of them. So the problem here is that if I edit an element, and delete EVERYTHING inside of it, it still uses up 1% Gameplay or sometimes even Graphics Thermometer. Somehow the game thinks there is still some sort of gadget or sculpture somewhere in the creation, despite the creation being empty and having everything deleted. Another important thing to note is that the "More Details" section of the Gameplay and Graphics Thermometerā€¦
