    Hello thar.

    Been having issues with some water - namely because I'm using it how it should never be used and having a vertical wall of water in conjunction with an airlock. However, this has led to the issue that from outside the water, you can see straight through it, like it almost isn't there but from within the water, the standard tint applies.

    Is there any way to solve this problem?

    EDIT: I should point out, this glitch only occurs when looking into the water from the sideways entrance. It's fine from above.

    The skybox is, rather crudely, completely sealed via a giant box. There are no entrances to the void, unless it's sneaking out somehow through the skybox.

    I have since determined that my problems are a limitation of the engine...one surface per lump of water, it seems. Ah well. Thanks anyway, I'll try for a work around.

    You can't have a vertical wall of water. Water in source doesn't work this way. Engine limitation.
