    Im making some water in my map, but when i compile it...the water isn't there. I would give screenies but for some reason its not working right today.

    I have columns in the water, and where the water around it is suppposed to be, it cuts the columns off. Making it seem like they are floating in mid air.

    Also, when you jump into the "water" you just hit the bottom, as if it were just air.

    Once you are down there however, when you walk up to where a column should be, you hit it, even though you can't see it.

    Anybody know what the problem is, and how i can fix it?

    you most likely have a leak. can you show us your compile log?

    Please post some screenshots of what you mean, that'll help us understand it abit more.

    It sounds like you've messed up the edges of the water, which has to be a 6 sized box.

    well now we know it's not a leak but i see you run vvis on fast mode.
    that might be causing your problem. try compiling on normal.

    really? You can't have a triangular box (5 sides)? I never knew that. I never tried that either, but I still never knew.
