Control Scheme Tab
# Control Scheme
How to control the view and imp when using a gamepad.
# Imp Sensitivity
How far the imp will move across the screen for a given change in teilt.
# Imp Speed
How quickly the imp moves across the screen when pushing the left stick.
# Imp Acceleration
How quickly the imp gets to full speed when pushing the left stick.
# Vibration Strength
How strong the vibration/rumble features of any creation will be.
# Toggles Instead of Holds
When on, actions that normally require holding a button or trigger will instead toggle. Turned on the action by pressing that button once. Then to turn off that action, press that button again.
When connecting the move controllers, the first to be connected is the Primary Move controller. The second to be connected is the Secondary Move controller.
The Primary Move controller is used to do most actions, with the Secondary Move controller tweaking settings and bringing up the menu.
Hold the Primary Move in whichever hand you want to use for the primary functions, and hold the Secondary Move in the other hand. Then tell Dreams, using this preference, which hand is holding the Primary Move. This will let games know which hand is which, and in create mode the menu will appear on the secondary imp, flipping towards the middle of the screen.
- Left: Will assume the Primary Move is being held in the left hand and the Secondary Move being held in the right hand.
- Right: (default) Will assume the Primary Move is being held in the right hand and the Secondary Move being held in the left hand.

Settings for playing with the PlayStation Virtual Reality headset.
Settings to make it easier for people to use VR if they suffer from motion/acceleration sickness.
# Comfort Mode
When on and using VR while the camera is moving within the game, your view will not change until the camera has become stationary. Then you will teleport to the new location using the Camera Transition Style below.
While this can be worked around by moving the entire scene, it’s both a lot of work, and will only nauseate players. Instead, add features so that those players can enjoy your game, or add the label requiring comfort mode to be off.
Games are told if this setting is on also, so that creators can take steps to cater to players who have this setting on.
# Camera Transition Style
How the screen will transition between views. Choose between:
- Instant: Cuts to the new view with no transition.
- Fade: Fades to black and then fades to the new view, with a 1 second transition.
# Comfort Vignette Strength
When the view is being moved by something other than the player’s head, a black vignette is shown around the edges of the screen to make the faster motion of the scene flying past less noticeable, which helps some to not get queasy as the camera moves.
# DreamShaping Menu Distance
How far away menus and other UI will appear in edit mode, while using VR. For example, the thermometer readout. Choose from:
# Allow Low Frame Rate in VR
If the framerate dips below a certain threshold while using VR, in edit or play mode, a warning message will be shown asking you to choose between continuing in “cinema mode” (a flat 2D screen shown in 3D space) to make the experience more comfortable, or exiting entirely.
When off, that threshold is higher. When on, that threshold is 30 frames per second—which can cause nausea in players.
# Static Sky
When on and in edit mode, the sky will rotate in yaw (looking left/right) and not pitch (nodding up/down) or roll (tilting sideways).
Good for moving around using the move controllers if you suffer from acceleration sickness.
# Dreamiverse Tab

# Hide Non-VR Content When in VR
When on and using VR, hide content not marked as suitable for VR.
# Hide VR Content When Not in VR
