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. I Can't Published a Remixable Level...

    I'm forced to Publish my new level as only Playable because of an annoying bug...

    Basically I used a sound effect provided by "MmOfficial" In an Element. Then stamped that Element into a new Dream. Deleted basically everything including the Music. Started making my Dream. But now I can't Publish it as Remixable...

    Here is a video showing how a damn Microchip is somehow linked to that MmOfficial Element...

    My Dream name that's forced to be only Playable is "Culling Logic" by ProtonFission

  2. 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€¦

  3. 2.07 comment timeout

    Currently there is no indication you cannot yet post a comment until you've finished writing it. This means you could spend a while wording the comment well, things like that, only to find you have wait 2 more minutes before actually posting it. Which means you have to cancel out and lose the comment you'd carefully prepared, or sit there for 2 minutes trying to post it now and then hoping you'll be able to move on with your life.

    Really not a friendly way to implement this for legitimate users. Presumably just an oversight, but one that's salt toā€¦

    Hi there TAPgiles!

    Thank you for reaching out about this issue. The 2 minute timer starts from when you press “post” on the first comment, and it is intended functionality that the warning message appears when posting. Thi measure was implemented to prevent spam.

    Many thanks,
    Monica C.

  4. R2 sensitivity

    On some Dualshock controllers, holding the R2 button doesn't function correctly. Seems like the button has trouble reaching the 100% pressed threshold. Is this a known issue and the reason that the toggle button option was introduced in the preferences? Is this the only workaround currently? It's stopped one of my creations from functioning correctly for some users and they may just assume that my logic doesn't work.

  6. Activity-page resets every time you enter a user's profile, or a creation, or view an image

    The activity page of a creation (or your own notifications) will automatically reset all the way to the left after I've scrolled a bit to the right IF I press on one of the users in a specific notification or interact with the notification in any way.

    The "scroll amount" should definitely retain the same even if you visit one of the users. Thanks! :)

  7. Animating sun direction is now broken

    I had a gadget called "Day Night cycle V2" where I carefully synchronise a Syn&Sky gadget with a rotating physical Sun and Moon.
    It worked well, so that you can have a physical Sun, but synchronised water reflections.
    Now if I edit my keyframes even slightly, it totally breaks the synchronisation.
    Here is a video hightlighting the issue:

  8. Can't upload any creation because of private assets from Media Molecule...

    Hi, I created a puppet that is somehow connected to MM's private creations (from the tutorial for light plus atmosphere). What is causing the problem is e.g. a dead tree, a crow, grass, painted mushroom and poppies. Because of this every creation containing said puppet is contaminated with those assets preventing me from uploading any scene or game because the creations are marked as private! Plus I can not delete many some creations that may cause this problem for they are saved online.

    So I used some private assets from a tutorial once on an early testing map and I'mā€¦

  9. Cant take a photo mode photo through the active camera.

    When viewing my creation it uses the camera with depth of field and other blur settings. However when in photo mode you canā€™t posses a camera or ā€œuse camera angleā€ setting of some kind. This means my photo wonā€™t be blurred like is it in view mode. So the cover photo doesnā€™t actually look like the camera view.

  10. Problem Publishing Element

    I am trying to publish a musical element but it says "Can't release as PUBLIC. Contains PRIVATE creations." But I only used one instrument in my creation. It's "Banjo" by MmOfficial. Is that somehow private? And if so, why is it even available to use If I can't publish what I created with it?

  11. can't release puppet because of bugged resource

    Hey Mm,

    I saved an element from a scene, and worked it into an puppet, saved it as private online while being WIP,
    https://indreams.me/element/oCvpLbHTnnK

    After being done, I wanted to release it but couldn't because it would contain "Private Elements". I checked, all Elements were public, I was informed, the scene I took the first element from was also still private.
    https://indreams.me/scene/dmSMqMrYTdD

    I tried to release the scene then, but found out that I couldn't either; the scene too would contain an private element. Curious, since I took only ressource released on the dreamiverse.
    After confering with knowledgable fellows likeā€¦

  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. can't delete a creation!

    I can't delete a creation.


    1. I tweaked a truck model that was my own creation within a race track I made.

    2. I saved the truck outside the track and called it super dirt truck model.

    3. I used super dirt truck model in 2 creations: Track 1 and Track 1B.

    4. I tweaked the truck again and saved it as another creation called super dirt truck model 2.

    5. I replaced the old model in Track 1 with model 2 and saved it.

    6. I replaced the old model in Track 1B with model 2 and saved it.

    7. I tried deleting the old model,ā€¦

  15. Loading into a dream sometimes causes loading wheel of infinity

    Occasionally when I start playing in a user made dream, the dream won't load and gives a loading wheel which i can't back out of, forcing me to close and restart the game entirely. It happens either immediately when hopping into a dream in the dreamiverse or after i play a handful of them. I've had to restart the game multiple times a day! I'm on the latest version 2.05 and base original PS4.

  16. "And-Gate" + "Wireless Transmitors" Problem

    step1:
    create two wirless transmitors, and one reciever with the same name/tag. make them being able to communicate with each other in the settings.

    step2:
    connect one transmitor with a active signal and observe the reciever getting turned on.

    step3:
    than connect an AND-gate with the second transmitor and the signal will be cut off to 0. (which is the issue)

    step4:
    connect one of the AND-gate inputs with a signal it stops being cut and the signal gets through again. even though just one of the AND-gates inputs is connected/active. (extra)

    here is a video:

  17. Surface snap ignores preview during frame-by-frame animation

    During frame-by-frame animation in paint mode, previews appear showing the previous and/or next frame. This is extremely useful, but if surface snap is used the paint sticks to the preview and so floats above the sculpt!

  18. Feeds do NOT return to where you exited when viewing the game profile page

    This is the third time reporting this catastrophic change to ALL the feeds that I expected to be fixed in this latest update after being broken in the orange update.
    So very very disappointed.
    To make matters worse, the notification feed is now showing a similar fault - though worse, as it returns to the start regardless how many messages you have. I have raised that as a separate bug as that was not present after Orange.

  19. Receivers defaulting to "On (/receiving signal)" when placed on an existing puppet

    Hi MM! Congrats on the launch! Small bug here (I think) from an EA user here:

    I had an existing puppet in one of my scenes with a bunch of logic on it, including a number of wireless receivers. For some reason, in edit mode (or play mode), when I restart time, the receivers have "ON" signal regardless when time starts, even if the entire chip is off. This signal turns off (seemingly one frame after) time starts. I've double-checked it and this happens even when no matching transmitter exists in the level.

    For example, if I stamp a newā€¦

  20. Difficulty possessing watering can during intro

    It may be hard to see from the video, Iā€™m trying to possess the watering can and nothing happens. I think while possessing Connie, I bumped it too close to the edge of the scene. Pushing it off the side caused respawn and I was able to proceed

    Hello Pookachoo,

    Thanks for your post

    I can confirm that in order to possess the watering can that the imp tip will need to be above the body of the can. The imp will animate when its above something it can interact with.

    From your post is looks like the imp was not over the body of the watering can long enough for you to posses the watering can.

    Cheers
    Mark M
