Dreams "How Do I?" šŸ¤”

Dreams is jam-packed full of incredible tools to let your imagination run wild. There are many things to discover and learn. If you have a question about anything in Dreams, here’s the place to search for answers. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, then you’re in the right place to post your question.

  1. DEBUG environment

    I like to see a lot of debug information, I use sliders, number displayers and varouis other methods and then a switch to turn them on and off.

    It would be brilliant to have the game turn these of for me when in play mode and back on when in the editor.

    All we would need is another option in the general setting gadget to output output bolean for editor mode, really simple but super useful.

    Unless there is another way of doing this I havent seen.

  2. is it possible to detect when being touched by a laser?

    I'd like a gadget to triggers when a laser touches it.

    The laser can detect when it touches something, but that "something" doesn't know it's touched.

    Object has the "detected" properties, when a zone trigger touches a specific scene object. But is there a similar sensor when touched by a laser?

    it could be useful to activate events on the touched object.
    for example, animating specific pointed object, triggers keyframes, etc.

    I'm trying to trigger a text gadget to display the enemy name I'm pointing at for a diablo-like game. when touched (looked at, not physical collision), it would triggerā€¦

  4. Attaching sensors and logic to text displayer

    OK. So there's this system that I'm trying to do where, during an RPG battle, you have the opportunity to dodge incoming attacks during the enemy's turn (like in Undertale). I'm using a text displayer with a heart in it (though that last detail might change depending on what I want to do with the level) to represent the player. Now I've got the X and Y movement down, but I want the icon I'm using to be able to register damage when hit by enemy attacks. Thing is, there seems to be no discernable way to apply such logicā€¦

  5. Rotate object to a given angle

    The game I'm working on is an old-school precision shooter type thing which requires objects to rotate to specific angles (in quick 90 degree steps in six axes), but it's proving incredibly difficult.

    It would be great if there was a Rotate To rotator, which behaves like a standard rotator but has an angle you can set for it to rotate to, along with the option to have it work in local space.

    I've tried using Angle Sensors, but they don't work accurately enough at high rotation speeds. I've also tried using Look At rotators and gyroscopes, but eveything I'veā€¦

  6. How can I get my dream not moderated

    Hi. First I would like to thank you guys for creating such a awesome game. I discovered dreams 5-6 month ago and have been building up my skills since then without releasing anything.

    I spent months working on my first project and was so excited to release it yesterday.

    You just moderate it out of dreams for mature content without a word of apology or telling me what I could change to make it ok for dreams.

    This dream is playable only and have been done with passion, artistic motivations and a clear focus on not being perceived as "ā€¦

  7. How do i ... get my reallife back?

    Dreams is awesome. Thank you Mm.

    I will watch all the great tutorials... I like the multiple clone between the cloned and the first object the most until now.
    It's a great experience...

    I will sharpen my senses ... to find bugs, search uncomfortable things... and will hit the like button a lot.

    I wish Mm the greatest, biggest, delicious piece of cake that exists on this earth.
    Good job Mm. Well done.

    I won't leave the dreamsverse for the next 8 hours... šŸ˜ŽšŸ¤Æ

  11. What is the best way to record audio?

    I know that after the release of Dreams the audio recording trick was closed, I was using it a lot to get the best recording but now I don't know what to do.

    Does anyone know a better way to record audio? Like an excellent Playstation microphone or another trick to record audio?

  12. Counter stops counting after one

    I have 4 counters connected to another counter that has the target value of 4. All 4 counters reach their full value, yet the counter that receives their signal stops counting after 1. Does anyone have an idea why this is happening, or how to fix this?

  14. How Do I: move controllers mega thread

    I know the tutorials for Move controllers aren't done yet, so I figured it would be nice to collaboratively put together all the essential Move controllers tidbits in one thread. If people contribute, I'll try to organize these into sections for easier reading.

    So here's a start:

    Basic Controls
    To open the edit menu, hold T on the left move controller.

    Sculpting
    To switch into cut mode when sculpting, tap the top of the left controller to the base of the right controller.

  15. How do I change the center of an object that I want to emit?

    I am using a Laser scope to emit this arrow on the picture at the position the Ray cast hits and pointing away from the surface, The problem is that You can only see half of the arrow because the emitter wont let me chose what I want the center to be. How do i Change the center to the bottom instead of the actual center?

  16. how do i make this logic system?

    i have a box that senses walls on X/Z if it senses a wall on -/+ X then it will tell another box not to follow the play for X directions same for Z but...

    how do i separate the -X from +X in a follower? like turn off the followers -X so only +X will follow the player and -X does nothing?

    i need this because if the player is near a wall that's on +x then that turns off the X of the follower completely and wont follower the player for -X when i want it to.

  17. How do I disable profanity filter? Does that option even exist?

    I'm confused, does this option just not exist? Whenever I enter text that contains language, it turns into asterisks. Is there no option to disable this? not even on a user basis? If not, I don't think you guys should just ban edgy content all together. Parental/user controls are a thing, you can just utilize that instead of resorting to this.

  19. Fire pulse every logic update? (E.g. continuously)

    Does anyone know how I could fire a pulse every logic update?

    For example I want to wire into a counter add port. I want my signal to be always on. But the counter only responds when it receives off then on. So does anyone know how I can force dreams to convert my continuous wire signal into a repeating pulse?

    And also importantly, have it pulse every time the Dreams logic updates.

  20. Invert Advanced Rotator Y-axis

    I am trying to rotate an object on itā€™s y-axis using the left stick right/left. I can get it to function properly by adding an advanced rotator, but the control is inverted.

    I tried using a signal manipulator to invert the signal as it heads into the rotator (because this is how I inverted the up/down axis on the left sick, so it is reasonable to think this would work for the rotator just like the mover), but this sets the y-axis slider to something around 57 degrees per second instead, and the object auto-spins counterclockwise when the controls areā€¦
