Hey guys I am trying to do a fountain water tutorial where it sprays upwards and falls back down but failing miserably as usual lol.

Is there any tutorial that can help me with this please? Thanks.

What are you doing so far and what parts not working?

Trying to make it shoot up in the air and possibly come back down.

It just shooting up in air slowly and staying there.

Increase the velocity in the Y direction (up). Give it some gravity (-9m). Set Explosion to a high enough value to get the particles to spray apart a little as they go up.

I could never get it looking good enough. In the end I did one lot of particles for up. Then another for down, & for falling where they started made that a bit larger in area & spread out a bit more.

You can see a fountain I did at around second 24, I just used two tubes displaced with a procedural that moves up and down.

Looks good. The simple solution is often the best.
