I am quite new to dwarf fortress and trying to create an underground farm. I know that I need to muddy the ground so I havd created thd chanel above the farm and placed a pond activity zone over it. Shortly after I get a notice that filling the pond has been cancelled because there is no water source.
So I find the closest water source, a murky pond that seems to be 1 layer lower than the land around it. I dig a small channel section at the edge to access the water and set a water source activity zone. I then recreate the pond but get the same message that there is no water source.
What am I doing wrong here? Would someone mind walking me through creating a water source? Thanks
