    how could i create a little waterfall from a sort of hole that drop vertically? like a tube for water
    i tried a particle effect but the effect is very short and i need a tall water drop, i tried with a textured water with the shape but it's pretty ugly and the player could even swim in it even if it's really thin

    If none of the default effects work well, you van create or request a new one. And you should be able to turn off collision on water so the players can't climb it.

    The water textures only work for a flat body of water that is contained, it won't work if you want to make a waterfall with it

    The best way to make a vertical stream of water is a brush with a scrolling texture on it, usually accompanied with some splash particles. A solid block tends to look too square and uniform so a displacement with a few random bumps would probably work better for what you want.

    Theres a recent discussion in this thread, EArkham explains the displacement method in very good detail
