How do you create water on Real Flight courses?

The title says it all. How can I create courses with water on Real Flight G5?

You can add water anywhere you want using existing terrain.

Find a nice place for what you want and add water in the editor.

First make sure that the water is set to "Enable " (yes)

Then you must make sure its set to "Render"the water (yes)(It should be by default, but double check)

Then you just increase the water level (Water Surface Altitude) value until it floods the your chosen area to the level you want

Keep in mind that you can not just make a pond or lake some where and leave lower elevations dry
the water level setting is Global ,( as if the oceans water level has risen)

There are other parameters that can be set like the water color and how far under the water you can see(visibility)

Exclamation

I still don't get it. None of you are explaining EXACTLY how to do it. Do I do it within the editior? Do I have to make a hole first and then fill it with water? How would I do that? What is it under in the simulator editor?

Well, some folks are very particular about how their hands are held.

I suggest a firm grip Major. Something that instills a strong yet conforting sense.

There's a GREAT punchline awaiting that setup, but I can't get it out!
