    I can't figure out how to make the top of the water show in-game on my map. I stole the lightning environment from Hydro and used the same water texture, however my water is not visible from above. The water works fine once inside of it, however. I followed the steps on the dev wiki.

    Maybe you have a leak in the map? If I remember correctly, if there's a small gap in your skybox that leaks into the nothingness beyond, then water textures get borked.

    Your map doesn't have to have any leak. Also water brush should be a NODRAW brush and only have water texture on surface.

    You have to compile VIS and RAD to see water ingame.

    Water brushes aren't entities
