So I've spent a bunch of time creating my stream/creek/river through my map using the waterstream tools, but I need at least one more patch to finish the river. For some odd reason, after creating my river, my last patch didn't stick when I tried to click off of it. (Is it just me or does it seem like you have to create an extra patch at the end?) Is there a way to add a patch to an existing stream or edit the lengths of the current patches? Or do I have to create a second stream and try to line it up?
I hate to start over from scratch, widening and raising each patch to the right height. Thanks for any help!

I normally run my last patch and right click it where I want to finish, then run one more and left click. That deletes the last extra patch and leaves the true end where you wanted it , then save and start on the heights and widths.
You can add on to your water at any time by simply selecting the waterstream and continuing on with right clicks.
Water is one thing that you can go on and on learning about layers, patches, layer speeds. patch speeds and opacities etc etc , for ever and a day.
It would take a whole book to fill in the information that is missing from the editors documentation on water.
Trial and error is the only way to learn.
Hope my little trick sorts you out.

Yep, that makes sense. Thanks again Dan!
I was able to add to the end of the stream like I wanted to, so that worked great. It's not a huge deal (you won't be able to see it in game), but the beginning of my stream doesn't line up with the edge of my map. If say I needed to or wanted to, can you add on to the first patch or only add additional patches to the end or last patch? Thanks!
