Is there a way you can set the master of a button to a light to change it's settings?

You shouldn't need a master. Master's are really only used for things that lock/unlock.

Just target a button at a named light entity.

You can set the light entity to Start On or Start Off.

so, if I make a button_target with it's target as CabinLight, the name of my light, do I check start on? But how do I know if it'll while playing the game if someones presses it turn the lights off?

Make a func_button.

Make a light named "happyfunlight".

Set the func_button's target = "happyfunlight".

That's it.

When a light gets targetted it switches on or off. That's all it can do.

There is also a way to make a button ONLY turn the light on, never off. And vice versa of course. That involves a trigger_relay.

In most wads, there are included textures that are "water".
Open up the texture browser and type in "water". When the water textures start appearing, look for any of them that have an "!" in front of them. This makes it so it is automatically water when you make your brush.

If none of your brushes have the "!" in front of the name, then there is another way.

Make your water brush.
Press CTRL+T to open the entity box.
Type in func_water in the name field so you can find the entity
Set some of the settings, and then there you go
