Making water from ice by Smaug Capello

Movie Description:

Survival under the glacier : making water from ice by caving in a big block of it through several levels.

I am still trying to figure how ice melts into water in the middle of the cave-in but freezes on the sides of the cistern.

I wonder if water would have been sealed in ice if I didn't dig two tiles for doors in a wall on the deepest level...

(On second thought, it may be because I kept a two-tiles-wide set of stairs.)

Thanks to Dumbo and Arven for revealing the trick on the Glacier Outpost thread from the bay12games forum

As Arven says :
"The trick I've learned for making your reservoir is this- make the pit as deep as however many levels you are trying to collapse. (so for 3 levels of ice have a pit 3 levels deep)."

Here I had four layers of ice, so I did a four-level deep cistern plus one empty level, just in case.

Only the first forty seconds are really relevant to the topic.

By the way, does anyone know any means to edit .cmv movies ?

Do you only see a blank space instead of a play button?
