flood effect meaning water right? Rising water? Yes, you can script a timer into the game, although the scripting for it is a little complex.

yes, but I cheated. I used copy and paste and a teleport at a valve.

Doesn't the water already do something similar but very small? i mean if you look at the water it already moves up and down couldn't you just find a way to increase that?

I'd like to say the water "animation" is just that... but you probably could if you messed around long enough :P

And Sorry Pinkerton... I don't have an example. Floods are pretty hard

I would just make it a lot easier tricking the player without the need of coding. Maybe have a teleport to a different map with the flooded version?

As my Adventure map has in it.

Basically, you have a room with very little water in it. The room has a passageway that leads to a valve. You have an invisible teleport at that valve. The teleport destination is at a copy of the room & passageway which is now flooded with water.
