    I play other peoples WiP's. Give feedback think of what "I" would do different.

    Stop at fpsb and look through the screenshots etc.

    Join a random custom server and play through a map or two what people like.

    Always hang out in the Steam Chat Room for TF2map.net. Awesome bunch in there and always useful help and info given.

    That deserves a double facepalm..... seriously, do you really think hes talking about real water?!?!

    To answer dragonflame's question seriously: No water in source games does not flow at all, you can make it rise and lower (as a whole plane) but it always hase to be flat and it doesn't flow like normal water.
