    How would you make water bursting out of something (ex: similar to a dam with a small hole)? Not water with a current, but a gushing stream of water. Any ideas?

    you can make some sort of waterfall with a scrolling texture but i can't really think of a wa to make it look like dynamic water bursting out of a dam.

    What i'd do is have a similar effect to the flamethrower, but with edited sprites.

    It'd look like serviceable water, it just all depends on how easy that would be to do.

    Sounds like a dynamic model combined with particle effects.
