Dreams: How to Edit and Remix Other Players' Creations

Dreams: How to Edit and Remix Other Players' Creations

We show you how you can play around with other peoples' games and films.

A big part of Dreams' sense of community is that it allows you to access creations belonging to other players and "remix" them, making a duplicate that you can then edit as much or as little as you want. We'll show you how to remix and edit other players' creations in our handy guide here.

How to Remix in Dreams

It's worth noting that not all the creations and games you can find while Dream Surfing are capable of being remixed. Players who upload their creations are given the choice of making them remixable, or just allowing it to be played as normal without any creative control over the contents. There's no way to remix a map if the owner doesn't want you to; the closest you can get is trying to recreate it from scratch in your own game.

If you want to remix a creation, go into Dream Shaping and select the search bar at the top. If you know of a creation you want to remix specifically, just type in its name and select it from the list that appears. If you want to peruse a wider selection, select the "Remixable" option on the left, then filter the results however you want.

Once you've found something you'd like to toy with, select it from the list. There should be a rounded button at the bottom that looks like a recycling symbol, next to the option to play. Select that to begin remixing the stage.

Why Can't I Remix This Creation?

If you can't remix something, that's either for one of two reasons: if there's no recycle icon at all, the creator hasn't given permission to alter it, and there's nothing you can do about that. If the icon is there, but greyed out, that means you still have to complete the relevant tutorials first. Go back to your Home Space and go through all the tutorials to unlock this option. The game will tell you when Remixing has been unlocked.

If that was helpful to you, why not take a look at our list of the best creations in Dreams for you to try out, which we've listed here? Or if you want to go to our handy beginner's guide, just follow this link.
