Well, if you wanted to make the lava appear as though it were a waterfall of lava, having the texture constantly moving downward you would have to make a shader

I have no clue how to make shaders though.

ok well, in the final mission in jk2 sp, you need to destroy the water pipe and then water comes out and puts down the fire, now... how did they make that water move like that? its almost the same thing i want to do, but a little different..:agreed:

Well, the pipe water in yavin final was in fact an efx file. Again I have no clue how to do this. Srry if i aint that helpful. To make an effect run in the map place the efx file under the effects folder, and then in your map making program make a fx_runner, and have it display that effect (ex: KEY fxFile Value /effects/"effectfilename".efx)
