Here is a short tutorial of how to make transparent water in a level.. The pictures might help if you get stuck with the text :)

1) Create a Layer above the main layer (in the example I named it "Water").

2) Create a Layer below the main layer (in the example I named it "Water - Background").

3) Set your Main Layer as the Main Layer.

4) Draw a block around the place where you want to have some water..It doesn't have to fit perfectly.

5) Clone the "Dirt"-block and move it to the layer above the main one. Make sure that your water-block is on the main layer.

1) Select the water-block, then the dirt-block. Choose "Difference" from the "Path"-Menu.

2) If everything worked properly, you should notice: If you move the waterblock, it will be shaped like the "hole" where the water is supposed to be later on.

3) Lower the water-block to the layer below the main layer, and set it's texture to "Water", for example. After it, clone the water-block and move the clone to the layer above the main one. Set it's texture to "blue_shadow".

4) Decrease the opacity of the "blue_shadow"-block and choose for the edge texture "bluen".

If everything worked properly, you should now have transparent blue water :P Thanks for reading!
