      An Exchange Of Dream World Objects

      Official gallery topic here:http://www.dreamviews.com/community/....php?p=1264541

      I was just thinking the other day...
      Wouldn't it be cool if people started designing things like furniture, or buildings, or landscapes and they could draw them up then publish them on the forum, then people could come and view their topics, read about the object or setting, then put them in their dream world? For example:

      Name: The Death Chair
      Use: Sit on the chair and it will throw you into the sky, and land you on the moon.
      Author: DemoUser232

      I just thought it'd be so much fun if people started exchanging DCs, objects, vehicles, species, or settings and we could read about them, get an idea about what they are like or what they do, and then dream about them ourselves?
      Also if we are told that the object will do something, we'll probably believe it. If someone makes a key that will take you to a chocolate world, you'll believe that it will because you won't doubt its power. For example, if I made a computer in the dream world I might doubt that it will turn on, but if my dream automatically made that computer I wouldn't think twice about it working. Maybe the same would apply if someone else made me that computer.

      People could design planets, or creatures, or new crazy things for us to dream about, keeping dreaming ideas constantly fresh. It could also help with lucidity. Rather than spending all your brain power trying to design a new object while you are asleep, you can find objects during waking time to use instead.

      In some ways, its as if we are personally creating or designing the dream world. As if we are "programming" it to our needs.

      Its a crazy concept, I know. But wouldn't it be fun if people started doing this? This could even lead to people planning out a dream area that they could consistently dream about. Imagine designing yourself a house, then filling it with wacky objects or characters other people make. If you keep thinking about it and keep reminding yourself about it, you could make it a regular place to dream in. A dream HQ.

      Just imagine. Making your ideas turn to life. Holding a gun you have created. Turning on a computer you have designed. Sitting in a chair you have sculpted.

      ========
      Tips for creating your item:

      1. Make it easily accessible. If the dreamer is having trouble spawning it, where else could you find it?
      2. Make it have an awesome power. Something that people would struggle with.
      3. Make it memorable. Something thats unique and not easily forgotten.

      Maybe you could do some image editing, or even just Google an image like in the example.
      I can't draw very well either. But there are some great artists on this forum that could maybe even draw something up for you.

      I was hoping that people might make their own topics for their own objects or landscapes, maybe in the artists corner or something, so you could rate the object or landscape with "rate this thread" and discuss the object / landscape.

      Maybe if this did catch on, a sub-forum might be useful? Thats thinking a bit far ahead though.

      Sounds like a really fun idea! Reminds me of the online store for The Sims. I'll think about dream stuff I've seen and post a picture of it (or as close a picture as I can find) in here.

      Okay, I have one...

      Trans-dimensional scimitar: looks like a regular scimitar, but has the added bonus of creating rifts in the space-time continuum capable of transporting the wielder to any time and any location. Teleporting made simple.

      If I have trouble spawning the object, where could I find it?

      I have several convenient locations:
      1. The sheath that magically appeared by your side.
      2. Laying right on the ground, Halo-style
      3. From your pocket. It comes in retractable form, much like a steel light saber. Just feel around for the baton.
      4. Random DC's are known to carry this item. It really has become common-place. It's the latest dream wear.
      5. A store. Due to recent technological advances, these are cheap beyond all reason.

      Those are the best. That'll work like a charm... hopefully.

      Awesome idea!

      Added bold for those extra fine people and then a badly drawn other device:

      (Please refine image in dreams)
      The ProLucid X, capable of activating your almost every need is coming to stores in YOUR town. As part of our new special offer we are also giving every dreamer upon lucidity a free ProLucid product. Come quick! Offer ends <Upon death in waking life>

      What is a pro lucid you may ask? Simply attach the black device to your back and upon pressing the center power button on the center OR saying "Activate ProLucid" (Voice commands programmable through options interface) and the easy to use holographic graphic user interface will extend from inside the pouch to a comfortable position for use.

      Either use voice commands or press options on the hologram to activate the many special features of the brand new device. These options include but are not limited to:
      - Activating built in jetpack
      - Projecting and image vortex around user to simulate easy shape shifting (careful, if you power off while in this state you will be stuck as such until spinning the dream or waking up or powering back on)
      - Activating shoulder guns
      - And much more

      To program more options onto your ProLucid X simple scroll to the bottom of our interface and press "add more" The device will instantly probe your mind to find whatever tool you're thinking of and program itself to add the option to your features tab.

      Get your ProLucid X today! Don't miss out on infinite possibilities!

      (How was that?)

      EDIT: This image fits the description well enough and it looks all right:

      If you think about movies, they seem to do exactly what you're describing.

      you can most likely dream about flying a tie fighter if you've seen Star Wars.

      Exactly.
      We see images, learn a description, and get an understanding of what it can do. Then we can dream about it.
      The idea here is that people can make custom made places to go. Like designing a dream before you dream it.

      I was hoping more people would draw or design their worlds. Its a lot more satisfying to generate an idea into something you can hold and use.

      (Oh, and of course the same applies to objects. Like making you very own flying car and then really using it)

      Loaf...you want to keep discussion/comments out of the other thread...but you continue to comment on every posted item. If you want to keep discussion out of that thread, you should lead by example. I can move all your comment posts to this thread if you want, and move all the item/image posts into that thread. Just let me know. It's a great idea btw, love it!
