I don't want to use the fluid simulator beacuse i've been getting more controlled results with the particles system feature + using a guide as a force field.
What i'm trying to accomplish is water flowing inside a pipe. I don't need it to be realistic but i need an inner flow to be perceived.
So i was thinking of using a particle system guided with the same curve that models the pipe (so it follows its shape) and maybe add a smooth modifier to the result, to make it appear as though the multiple particles are only one fluid.
Of course if you think there's a way to achieve this easily with the fluid sim, or maybe there are ways to control it more preciselly, I will be glad to listen to your suggestions. But if what i'm asking is possible i would like to go that way or even a lower-tech solution (without any kind of simulation at all!)
