Animal Crossing New Horizons or ACNH has a feature that makes it possible for the players to dream. As you probably can guess, the name of the feature is dreaming. With it, everyone is allowed to upload and share dreams of their islands to the internet. Not only that, they are also able to visit the dream islands of the other players. To do that, a Dream Address is needed.
A feature called dreaming is able to be activated by lying down on a bed inside the house of the player. As a player of the game, it should be easy for you to do that. After activating it, Luna will show up in the dream state after choosing the “Yeah, I want to sleep.” Option.
Before trying this dreaming feature, it should be noted that there are a few things that you can do and a few things that you cannot do. What are the ones that can be done? Is keeping the stuff from the dream included?
There is a popular saying that anything that happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas. Apparently, the same thing applies for Dream Island. It is stated that anything that happens on your dream island stays on your dream island. From the statement, it can be concluded that keeping the stuff from dream island is not allowed. Once again, please keep in mind that every visitor cannot take anything home with them because everything that you pick up or catch and store in your pockets will be gone the moment when you wake up. talking about the creatures, remember that the ones that you catch will also not be recorded in your Critterpedia. However, these creatures are still able to run over the flowers and pick them up while they are in their dream.
Apart from keeping the stuff, crafting items and learning recipes are also not allowed in your dreams. In addition, catalog furniture is also prohibited as when you wake up, those items will not be found in your Nook Shopping Catalog.
Then, what are the things that are allowed in Dream Islands? If there is no one, then what is the fun of dreaming? Actually, there are a lot of things that you can do in the Dream Islands. Are you wondering what kinds of activities that you can do when you are in your dream? Check out the list below:
Exploring the island without affecting it
Feel free to do anything that you want as long as the activity that you do does not affect the real island. Due to the fact that the thing that you are exploring is just in the dream, go spend your time roaming around and do not worry about destroying the island.
Speaking with the villagers and with the players
When you are on the island, you are allowed to speak with the dream versions of the player and the island villagers. Do not miss the chance to greet them.
Saving Shared Custom Designs
By going to the Custom Designs Portal, you will be able to access the Custom Design made by the owner of the Dream Island. For those who have no idea about the location of the Custom Design Portal, it is located at the Plaza, in front of the Resident Services.
Viewing Bulletin Board posts by players
You can view and read personal messages that are written by the players on the island Bulletin Board. However, since there is no way for you to write one by yourself, it is better for you to just bury your plan if you are thinking of doing that.
Using Rescue Service
Even in your dreams, there is a chance for you to get lost. If this kind of thing happens to you, you are suggested to call the Rescue Service app.
In case you think that a dream island breaks the rules applied by Nintendo, such as having hateful or harmful content, the best thing that you can do is to report it to Nintendo. In order to report it, all that you have to do is to press the – (minus) button when you are in your dream. After that, your report will be reviewed by Nintendo. Before anything, please make sure that the island indeed violates the rules. Do not ever try to use this feature to do something that is not good. Besides, it is also important to be polite.
Registering Dream Island to Your Favorites
Apparently, those with Version 1.5 or later will be able to save their favorite islands for quick and inspirational visits. It means there will be no need for them to input the Dream Code again. If you are one of them with the Ver 1.5 of later who want to save your favorite islands, you can do it by selecting to revisit a dream when you go to the bed to dream. By following the step, you will be able to see the list of the last Dream Addresses that have been visited before. To be able to mark them as your favorite, please press X.
Visiting random Dream Islands
As part of the Winter Update, in the Ver 1.6, you have the ability to visit the dream islands randomly. What makes it more interesting is that there is no need for you to use the Dream Address. If you find it interesting and want to try it, you can just choose the Surprise Me option when you go to bed to dream. By doing so, you will be sent to a random dream island by Luna.
Aside from the list above, some other things that are allowed to do in the Dream Islands include viewing the passports of the player and entering the homes belonging to the players and the villagers. It is important for you to be aware of the things that are allowed and the ones that are not allowed in the dream.
