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. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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€¦

  7. 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?

  8. Grouping Glitch

    I'm currently working on a roller coaster prototype, and -when I group my seats to the wheels that traverse the track, the game treats them as 1 group, but the seats stay in place as the wheels take off on their own.

    https://youtu.be/8ojn38SC1Tc

    Am I doing something wrong, or is this a glitch?

  9. 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.

  10. Sculpt Mode - Stretch tool show option to select a shape.

    When you choose the stretch tool in sculpt mode, everything goes gray, and the below steps work, but there is no prompts anywhere that say "select shape" and the X button doesn't select a shape. All that is needed is that small fix, that already works in most every other function.

    Go to sculpt mode (which deselects what you selected)

    Choose Stretch Tool

    Then hover over the victim piece


    • THEN hit L1-X,

    This is because there is nothing on screen telling you to do this last step, and no other button you can press to select the object once stretchā€¦

  11. Dreams not saving

    This is incredibly frustrating.
    Iā€™ve got a new dream that Iā€™ve loaded with different scenes. Iā€™ve connected doorways, added notes and scribbles to organize and then I save the dream.

    NONE OF MY PROGRESS SAVES!

    So I go back into the dream to make changes and everything Iā€™ve done to it is gone. Like it never happened. So Iā€™ve redone everything maybe 10 times and saved. And after exiting and going back into the dream none of my work is saved.

    This is incredibly frustrating. I thought it was an issue with putting my PS4 pro in standby and comingā€¦

  12. Some scenes don't save the camera where I saved and left them

    Before update 2.03 if I saved a scene, the place where I left that scene got saved. If I re-entered my scene I was at the exact place I left the scene.

    Now if I save some scenes and re-enter my camera is at a completely different position. Way up high and not where I left the scene.

    Hello nickieisyoppie

    Sorry for the delay in getting to this.

    From reading your post it sounds like the mover was attached to the platform when you grouped it with the button.

    This will group the elements together. but the movers effect will not be applied to the button. As suggested by members of the community you would need to group the elements first and then attach the mover to the group.

    From the comments, its sounds like you have resolved the problem you were having.

    If your still having problems please get in touch.

    Thanks

  15. Where is the grab point in show/hide menu

    In the Make your item fit for a queen video tutorial, I saw that it says to Turn on Grab point in the show/hide menu. Itā€™s not in the menu.

    Hello POWDER-001,

    Thanks for your post.

    So setting grab points is only present when creating elements. This option wont appear in the palette if your in a scene.

    If your still not seeing the grab point option in when ctreating an element, you need to save the element first before you can set the elements grab point.

    Let us know if this information helps.

    Cheers,
    Mark M

    Hello DrinkWater200,

    Sorry for the delay in getting to this post.

    As a sculpt gets larger code will change the flecks in order to accommodate the sculpts increasing surface volume.

    The best advice for making large pieces of terrain would actually be to make the environment with slightly smaller pieces of terrain and clone them multiple times. Clones will be more cost effective on the thermometers. As pointed out by AndymationB .

    You can also use the stretch tool to increase your sculpt and then as stated by TAPgiles, use the Sculpt detail tool to increase its detail. this will recalculate the flecks and may allow you to claw some detail back.

    If the sculpt detail tool does not have any effect on your sculpt then its lightly as been maxed out.

    Hopefully this information has helped,

    Thank you for your post.

  18. No character model in update mode

    I have remixed a character from Drinkwater200's Unreal Engine 4 Puppet, however it no longer displays the character in update mode. Does this mean character models are automatically updated? It's the same when I remixed other people creations as well.
