What if I want to sense my dimension and a single "other dimension"?
Yep, you read it right. I think it works best for Clairsentience but it can be applied to other things and I dont see a problem with Vibration Sense.
So the +50% version means that you can use your normal senses in your own plane but you have a special sense that can spot things in another plane. Good way to have a sorcerer or druid type that can sense when spirits get close but a perhaps a tingly feeling rather than seeing them.
But the +100% version lets you use it to sense both. But you might run into the -4 Per penalty if obstacles are different as you have to focus on one at a time to avoid walking into things.
I'd say you need Compartmentalized Mind to observe multiple worlds at the same time without being confused.

Vibration Sense is a really cheap way to see across planar barriers (the +100% enhancement just allows you to use it on either plane to 'peak' across). It is good enough to detect objects in the way, annoying mortals who might detect a manifestation, annoyed immortals waiting for payback, etc. In the case of spirits wanting to do a little hanky panky, it is probably enough to allow them to find their paramours and be reasonably sure that they are alone.

Well, it will tell them thereís a person in the corresponding location in the other plane, but it doesnít really give enough details to identify them. Can lead to problems, naturally, particularly if the person turns out to be the paramourís spouse. Of course, there could be items that are particularly easy to detect and identify with the sense (either for mundane or magical reasons), so carrying one or more of those could make one more easily identified by a world-jumper.
