    Is there any way to make a level seem underwater? I have a large room with great big windows, and i placed water outside of them, but when I compile the game the water doesn't even look as though it's there?

    What am i doing wrong?

    Water is weird. Its also a pain the arse.

    You must be inside the water block to get the underwater effects, you cannot see into it sideways.

    Someone recently posted about this. You basically have to recreate the effect manually.

    Water in the source engine only renders the top. Edit: :facepalm posted too soon.
