Ok. I made a water brush that is circular. It is made of 4 bevels. For all of them I made the curve texture caulk_nonsolid, and I capped them (top and bottom!). I texture the caps with yavin water1. Now for my problem. The water is textured correctly adn u can go in it, BUT IT HAS NO SUBSTANCE! YOU FALL INTO IT AS IF U WERE FALLIN THROUGH AIR! Why is this? I want to make it water.:(

I'm not sure if you cam make curved water. Is this supposed to be a water-filled pool that is circular in shape? If so, just make your pool out of curves (I mean the actual physical pool to hold the water), and make the water a BRUSH that is the right height and width, as long as you can only see the top face of it. Don't worry about if it intersects the curves.

Hehh, I made circulat water one. But four bevels are not good. Use a capped cylinder instead. Caps are water textured and the cylinder is caulk_nonsolid. And of course I made the pool with a thick cylinder. It works...

...but there is a big problem. If the pool is higher than the water and it is mostly, than the inner wall of the pool (a cylinder) will be splitted automatically into two pieces where the upper water surface is.

I didn't like this so I made my pool and water out of 32 sided brushes. :)
