My Aqueduct periodically releases water to form waterfalls over my fortress. A great way to generate positive thoughts and get rid of all those blood splatters.
Do you only see a blank space instead of a play button?

Not too much going on here, just a short vid from my fort Duralducim (Clockworks). I have an aqueduct above the fort that also releases a waterfall (thanks to a pressure plate in a high traffic area) every so often. The real trick is keeping the pool from overflowing.

Question from Foaboe: How does it work?
Answer: I'm embarrassed to say that it is much less complex than it should be. You can see the reservoir and floodgates that control the waterfall at 00:16 - 00:18. The floodgates are connected to a pressure plate below them, seen at 00:20 - 00:25. Anytime a dwarf steps on the plate, the waterfall is released. The pressure plate sits in a high traffic area, so it's really only an application of creature logic.

Coaldiamond, infact, waterfalls activated by the dwarves is very cool - imagine years from now when the fortress is long and forgotten, and adventurers pass by, activating all the old water fall systems.
