First update for Dreams Mini Golf is done, if you played the first version this features an entirely new shot power system with multiple options for how the power is controlled and displayed. Also added new cameras, bug fixes, and some tweaks to some of the holes.

That’s great. The old system it was pretty hard to gauge how hard you were hitting it. This looks much better. :)

So it appears I may have lost several hours (which is weeks worth for me) of one of my dreams. Not sure if anyone can help, but hopefully you can learn from my mistake if not...

Here is the sequence of events.

First I started working on a building. After a long time with it, I realized I was using up too much thermo to detail the inside AND outside in the same scene, so I grabbed all the exterior parts and saved it as a different scene. Great.

From there I worked on the interior scene for several hours and worked on the exterior scene for several hours.

This whole time I had just been saving to my PS4. With literally dozens of hours between everything, I was getting paranoid that my PS4 would die, so I finally got around to saving it online as Private. I started with my interior space. When I went to upload it, the game made me also save anything that was connected to it. Okay. No problem there. I had it upload everything as Private.

Then when I go back to my exterior space scene, it's reverted back to when I first exported it as its own scene. Several hours of progress lost.

So, first question is obviously am I screwed? Is there a way to revert back to my previous save on my system?

If not, please tell me what the heck I did wrong so that I won't have this ever happen again. Really frustrated and depressed over this. I don't have a ton of time to work on this each week, so it's weeks worth of progress lost. :(

Maybe check on the Version and Releases tab in your creation?

Have you tried going to the scene's 'genealogy and versions' page (or whatever it's called)? It keeps every saved version there. It's saved my ass multiple times.

*edit* beaten but I'm glad you figured it out.

Just put up a remixable mini golf hole, should be pretty user-friendly. Design your hole, place triggerzones over the playable area, set the par number for the hole, tweak the intro fly-by, and that should be it I think.

I'm coming back to this topic having not played the game in a couple of months and not really having kept up with it. Is there a list anywhere of essential levels to play? I don't really have the time (or imagination) to create anything but I enjoy seeing what other people have made.

Media Molecule now maintain a list of their favourite Dreams called 'MM Picks', which is a pretty good place to start :)

It's by no means an exhaustive list of all the good games though, there's heaps of good stuff outside of that.

Same here lol I am only playing until NSM update comes out, but the last few days I've been back trying to play as much as I can

It actually is! I've tried several good levels/dreams that way. I just wish there was a better way to browse it. Having to pick 1 by 1 to see the thumbnail is annoying. I wish there was a say to sort them in a way the thumbnail is bigger.

You can zoom in with the right stick I think.

Hey all

I released my second major Dreams project yesterday. It's called Cloud Roads and it's a racing/platformer hybrid sort of game that was somewhat inspired by the 90's DOS game "Skyroads"

Here's the link to the indreams page.

Here's what and old version of it looks like (again):

Let me know what ya think!

Side note: Does anyone know how to rearrange the order of the high score tables? currently mine is showing the stages all out of order.

This thing is coming together QUICK! Last week all I had was a grey box test level and a main character. Since then, I've done all the environmental art, enemies (with path finding and states), a custom camera rig, and a bunch of audio work. It's already feeling polished enough to show off. Fuck I love Dreams.

there are more and more ambitious Dreams game now, it's really amazing to see. no idea if Dreams can break out to mainstream success, but it really deserves some big success. it got to win a bunch of awards or something
