    I am bad at the particle editor. I have an area where water has to flow rapidly through a pipe, churning as it goes, so I need a particle effect for this, to make the water look like rapidly flowing water, if someone could make it that'd be great.

    The pipe is 128*128*768.

    Particle designers are hard to come by, so if that doesn't work out, you could use Fubar's Water Effects pack here.

    Essentially, it's an animated texture that you can overlap on displacements to create the effect of flowing water. Play around with the .vmt settings and you can alter things like how fast the water moves.

    It's not as pretty as a particle effect (nor is it as costly), but it gets the job done.

    What ever happened to that one guy who was a particle system expert? He didn't stick around very long.

    You can usually catch Chaofanatic on Facepunch, he's been making a lot of weapon particle fixes lately. I think PMing him there is your best bet.
