The Dream Suite (also known as the Dream Mansion) is a building that is introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It is run and operated by Luna, who also makes her début in the game. It must first be built, which can be achieved by talking to Isabelle when she is first seen sleeping at her desk in the Town Hall (After completing the first public works project). She will make the suggestion shortly afterwards as a project.
Creating the Dream World
To create a dream world town representation, the player must first upload it to the Internet . The process can be done by sitting down on a couch inside the suite. The player then goes through a series of short questions, such as allowing their used patterns to be copied by other dream dwellers. Designs should not be shared if they contain inappropriate symbols or language. This requires Internet to work.
After the creation of the dream world, other players will be able to visit it. It can also be updated once per day. Updating will overwrite the existing town with a recent version of it and reveal how many times it was visited by other dream dwellers. As well as the previous statement, updating the player's Dream World rendition of your town will give the player a reward of 5,000 Bells.
If the dream world is not updated or visited for a very long time, it will be automatically deleted from Nintendo's servers. This will wipe every collected data of the dream world including visit counts.
Dream walking allows the player to access dream versions of other players towns, which costs 500 Bells a visit. It does not require the other player online to allow them access. This is different to inviting a friend to visit or being invited to a town, because they do not see the other player. Not all towns are available to visit, because some players may disallow town sharing.
There are different ways to access Dream Towns. Luna will say the following sentence, then the Player is given a choice of responses they can use to reply to the question:
- "Now then, why don't you start by telling me what kind of dream you want to have?"
- — Luna, Dream Suite
- I'll leave it up to you!
- Input Dream Address.
- I'll search for one!
- Actually, I'll pass...
By letting Luna choose, the player will be taken to a random Dream Town. They will be told the Dream Address and the name of the town for future reference. However, if the player responds by inputting a Dream Address, the player will be asked for a 12 digit code. If the Player chooses to search for one, they can search for a town through a selection of options:
- What they should dream.
- Town name
- Player name
- Cancelling the request.
The player can do mostly anything in the town except access Main Street. Any actions that the player makes does not affect the other Player's world as this only emulates it, creating a vandalism free way of sharing towns. Also, the Player will not be able to bring back any items they pick up in the Dream Town.
Wendell can be found walking around in the dream town. When talked to, he will allow the player to obtain patterns that are used by the other player. He will only give out patterns from the town if the player has made the pattern themselves. Also, Wendell will only appear if the player author chose to make their patterns available.
