How to map
- See also: Waterways
Create a linear way in the direction of flow, connecting the ends appropriately to other waterway elements to create a routable network. If a flow exists (or it could exist), the direction of the way must be downstream (i.e. the way direction follows the flow). If the drain discharges into another drain, stream, a river, or other waterway or into the ocean, sea, or similar you should make sure both are connected through a shared node.
