    This would be a fun way to expand the Minecraft universe.  However, as another sort of dimension, "dreams" probably shouldn't be so easy to access every time the player goes to sleep.

    Maybe there could be a complicated potion or enchanted food the player would have to obtain/create to enter.  By eating/drinking the hallucinogen, the bed kind of acts like a portal to the dream dimension when the condition is met.

    But if we're turning dreams into a dimension, then the accessibility to this dimension would be a little too cheap.  To get to the Nether, you have to collect diamonds to make a diamond pickaxe, to mine up obsidian to build the portal.  To get to the End you have to get the resources to make several Eyes of Ender, which you have to follow for miles to the nearest and only stronghold, then activate the portal with those Eyes of Ender.  Entering a dimension by sleeping on a bed is just too easy and doesn't follow the theme and rules of Minecraft.

    Also, to be more true to dreams, sleep, and the rules the game already follows, there has to be a time cycle to how long the player can stay in the dimension at maximum.  It could be the same length as the night length in the game.  The player could still wake himself up in the middle of the night or dawn.

    But to be able to enter a whole other dimension and avoid the nocturnal monsters of the overworld, just by lying in bed without a hallucinogen of some kind...sorry, no.  That does not follow Minecraft.  If the game needs the realism that we dream every time we sleep, then you could ask that they add little minecraft character animations in place of the fading to black that happens before you wake up.

    No, it should happen every time you enter, no need for drugs or anything special, it's like you saying that you don't dream when you sleep and that is crazy. Maybe the special effects only do stuff when you're on Day 50 and above, or maybe you need to drink a special potion in the dream dimension would give you effects in the overworld.

    getting to the dream dimension should be a random event thats moderately rare, with an equal chance of it being a nightmare or a good dream

    WolveReigner781, no one ever said that an easy dimension was against minecraft, the dream biome should be accessible every time you sleep, I think maybe you need to place an enchantment table near your bed or on enchanted blocks maybe to get special effects. But the dream dimension should be a dimension that is like the overworld! You would be able to say that you could access 2 easy dimensions, the dream dimension is basically a second overworld with new mobs and new items for only that dimension.

    The illusioner (the illiger that doesn't have a use) should drop an item that lets you go to the dream world

    You would need to do something before going in there, instead of going in there every time you sleep. This would also get anoying if you are just trying to sleep through the night.

     

    Maybe theres a super rare chance that when you sleep, it will give a potion (dream potion?) that gives you the effect for some time. So if you have the effect when you go to bed, you wake up in the dream dimension. And when the potion runs out it blinks and teleports you back.

    This could be a cool idea, and it actually could work, if sleeping in a bed didn't change the time at all but just gave you the rest of the night in the dimension. This seems a little overpowered for only having to sleep in a bed; a charm, potion, or enchantment would make it more realistic- like maybe you have to hang a dreamcatcher from the ceiling by the bed, made of some string and sticks? Of course, magically enchanted ;)

    I definitely like the part of how sleeping multiple times in a row keeps the dream, and not sleeping will deteriorate it and spawn more enemies- paired up with the phantoms, this really makes you want to go to bed!

    Instead of collecting materials, though, what if you had a certain (randomized) objective, or multiple, in each dream? You have, lets say, three objectives, and completing one gives you a new one. Based on the number you complete, you get more rolls for effects. (Rolls being tries, like if certain potion effects had a 20% chance of occurring, rolling twice would check for that 20% two times).

    I've always wanted an update like this, it'd be really fun :)

    I like the mechanism of entering a new dimension via sleep, so I support this idea!

    I see many other ideas for entering dimensions involve creating some kind of portal, like the nether portal, but with different blocks, and with different activation mechanisms, but it still is just a portal.

    I think this is unique enough to occupy the next slot in dimension access in Minecraft.

    My take is this:

    You shouldn't go to this dimension every time you sleep, but even when you sleep normally, you see a zooming stars effect, like that old starfield Windows screensaver, or the Star Wars "lightspeed" effect, except, of course, they would be the square Minecraft stars instead :). The animation will come to an end when you reach the star at the end of the field (i.e. the Minecraft sun), and then you will wake up.

    When you sleep with preparation (potion effect X, or carrying X item in your hotbar, wearing X, etc), the zooming effect will begin as normal, but partway through you will veer off to an unremarkable star to the side and arrive there instead. When you wake up, you are in the new dimension.

    Multiplayer functionality: If a player has prepared (potion effect, item, block X), and they go to sleep on a multi-player server, instead of waiting for other players to sleep, they should just start the sleep animation, and go to the other world since the time of day does not need to change. if they have not "prepared", they will have to wait for other players. Once everyone is in bed (without "preparation"), they will all get the sleep animation, and then wake up as normal in the morning.

    I think this dimension should be real, and not part of the player's imagination or dreams (living IRL is the dream in Minecraft!), so the dimension this could lead to could be any of the great ideas posted in this section!

    Some examples that this entrace would suit:

    This possible feature is fine but I think the acces to the dream dimension should be random, like 1/4 of the times you go to sleep. This is because (I think) the mayority of times everyone goes to sleep is simply to skip night. And, if we are getting some realism, people have problems recollecting the dreams. This idea supports the randomness of the access. That way, the feature would be more interesting and sought after for the "effects" it would cause over gameplay.

    Also there must be a way to avoid "getting dreams", because some people might not want to forcefully "have dreams" for some reason (like the generation of additional, unintentional data, to their device's internal memory). This could be implemented with a lockable option per world (for mapmaking and servers), like difficulty, nowadays.

    That should be in settings so that you can turn it on and off

    Good idea, I mean.... seriously minecraft have the nether and the end and obviusly the overworld, but when you sleep anything happens, I would like to can dream in minecraft, but an good to add to your post, I don't even know if mojang can program but that the dreams would be random or that it would be based in things you have done in your dialy journey. I also like the idea about the nightmare effect, but a minute is insufficient, maybe 1:30 or 2:00 minutes will be better. The best update than can still have (in my opinion).

    Maybe just have it be an extremely rare occurrence. The dream realm would have many rare resources all around and you get like 30-60 seconds to collect as much as you can. The bed might become a temporary storage for these resources that disappear from it the next time you sleep, so that you're required to take them out of it.

    i think it should be more of a multiplayer feature, like when you sleep but someone else doesn't.

    I also think that this would be better as it's own dimension. Since I've been thinking about this all night, here are a few things I would like to see if Mojang decided to add this as the fourth dimension:

    1. More phantom lore. The phantoms exist. Why? Why on this sweet earth do phantoms exist? Anyways, they exist, and there isn't really an in-game explanation. Their spawning is related to your sleep, so they obviously have a connection to this new dream dimension.

    2. Chaotic disjointed structures, mashed together into a strange dream world. You think you're in a stronghold, but you turn left, and it's a woodland mansion, you turn right and it's an abandoned mineshaft, you walk down a village path into an ocean monument, and come out on top of a pillager outpost. Everything is mashed together.

    3. Dimension populated by Steve's nightmares. What are Steve's nightmares? That's for Jeb to decide. I know he's coming up with some sort of story behind this game, and I want more clues as to what it is.

    4. A community contest to come up with bizarre disjointed biomes to fill this dream world. I know people will come up with great stuff.

    5. Because the dream dimension isn't exactly a new place like the nether or end, but a realm inside the minds of the players, I think instead of a portal, you should build a magical altar around a bed. When using the bed, you can enter the dream dimension by going inside your characters mind.

    So those are my ideas. Thanks!

    Maybe you access it by hitting a “sleep in” button on the be while sleeping. Maybe if your dream becomes a nightmare you will hallucinate when waking up

    but what if you sleep in the dream dimension and dream you’re dreaming? And there you build a bed, again, and again, and again, and when you wake up you have enough ore for an hour of night vision.

    It's kind of a cool idea but sometimes you just it to be day, so even though you can just jump three times to wake up, it should be a setting or maybe you have to make a special dream bed or something.

    Voted but a little too overpowered, good idea though, also you should be able to have a setting or a special way to have just a bed is too easy or maybe you just want to skip the night, so maybe a special way to get there?

    Yes! I was thinking this exactly! There should be a 1 in 5 chance or something where you’ve to the night mare world with monsters called Nightmares and they can kill you in the Dream world. There could be pajamas made out of wool so when you go to the dream world you have “armor” which protects you from the Nightmares. There should also be special materials that are only really accessible in the dream world so the players are motivated to go there.

    I would think this should be classified as a dimension instead of a biome, being the entier 3 directions you can travel in this minecraft space would presumably be just this biome and cut off from the rest of the overworld, as you probably can't just hit f3 mark down the cords and tp back when you wake up.

     

    Edit Of course i didn't read the comments and everyone was already doing that..

    I like this, but I honestly think it should be using something specific like a special bed or food (warm milk maybe?). Going to a new dimension everytime you sleep doesn't sound appealing, since with the Nether and End you choose to go there when you want.

    There should be a special bed that is obtainable with phantom membranes crafted with a normal bed and it is a comfy bed that lets you travel to the dimension. I think that the resources should also be able to come back with you or be obtainable in the main world somehow.

    Maybe dreams that make you think you don't have a dream tonight but it's just a recreated area of your base in a dream, but there might be something off in your world, for example it's raining, and there are many creepers and many of them get striked by lightning and your base is blown up, or maybe dreams could hint at something, for example how to create a nether portal, a wither or something else. Also I don't think dreams should be very often, they should be more or less rare.

    I'm not sure I like this idea. The concept is cool, but being forced to go into a dreamscape unwillingly would be really frustrating when I'm in the middle of something, or say when playing with a friend. I also feels like it pulls you out of a simple minecraft experience, sounding more like a cool mod than something that should be part of the base game. I dunno, maybe if you have to drink a milk potion or have some status effect of some sort before going to bed to get the dream, and also the dream is high risk/high reward and keeps in with the lore (maybe something to do with endermen or phantoms), then I'd say maybe.

    I like this idea, but there are a few issues. You shouldn't go to the dream world every time you go to bed. There should be some kind of potion that you make and drink right before you go to bed. Thus, when you go to bed and drink the potion you will be in the dream dimension. Also, I think that the dream dimension should be unpredictable and mystical. Maybe sometimes you could get random nausea, night vision, or speed/slowness. Also, maybe in a rare occurrence, you will spawn with an elytra (just like when you have a flying dream IRL), but when you wake up you do not keep it. 

    I also think that every time you go into the dimension, it should be different. Maybe different colored beds could change the biome or gameplay in the dimension. And I do not agree with gathering enough dream resources to have abilities when you wake up. If you die, you shouldn't keep your dream resources.

    why are there so many upvotes on this! usually, people just sleep in a Minecraft bed so they can continue their project while it is DAY TIME! this would be so annoying to have to deal with because even though you just have to jump three times, the game would still have to load up the dream world to get you there, and then load the regular world when you LEAVE! so, that would mean that it would take me about a minute just to continue doing my project! the regular sleeping time is about FIVE SECONDS. no one would want to deal with this. sure, there COULD be a setting to turn off dreams, but I doubt that Mojang would spend that much time on coding an entire dimension, JUST SO THAT PEOPLE COULD TURN IT OFF! HOW ARE THERE SO MANY VOTES FOR THIS SUGGESTION!!! by the way, I'm not trying to be mean here I'm just confused as to how 600 people could want this feature!

    I like this idea but I have something to add. I agree with most of that, but I think that instead of different dimensions, you just wake up on a bunch of islands in the sky, except there's nothing below them--if you fall, you die. 

    There's a small chance to have a dream every time you sleep but the Dream Potion guarantees it. It can be three minutes long or eight minutes long. Once you drink the potion and go to sleep, it fades to black like usual, but you wake up in the dream dimension. Every additional dream potion you drink during the dream extends it by three or eight minutes, and the effect countdown shows how much longer the dream lasts. Usually, it's daytime and the islands are peaceful, but there's a one-third chance for it to be a nightmare, where it's night and monsters spawn. 

    In both kinds of dreams, you wake up with no equipment and when you leave the dream you keep any materials you gathered during the dream. Chests of equipment and materials are scattered throughout the dimension, and ores are much more common. 

    In normal dreams, it's just a race to collect as much as possible in the time you have, and it also breaks up the late game monotony because you don't have any gear. It might be cool for there to be cloud creatures, maybe about the size of a phantom but passive.

    In nightmares, monsters and phantoms are everywhere but there is more loot, and the ultimate objective is to kill the boss, which isn't super powerful but keeps you in the dream until it dies.

    I think this is more a dimension than a biome but that looks really cool and maybe there is a litttlee chance of you to go there by just sleeping but that litte chance is not opcional and when you are there maybe you need to look for some kind of portal to go back to the overworld
