There is no way to say how to make every trap as the trap itself sets how you need to make them. Most of them use some type of movers (spikes that move up, floors that move out of the way, some thing to cause the player to receive damage. And maybe a trigger.

No way to get just 3 on 3.

To make traps hurt you, you can use a lava volume (or is it called damage volume)

I know what movers are but have never been able to find a good tut to learn how to use them. Can anyone lend me a link of a good one?

I think what shadow did was put a trigger that slammed an invisible mover down on the spike, making it so the pawn couldnt slide off.

Found something called spikekarma, seems that its an invisible spike that goes inside the mover that somehow they can stick into.

i use kactors to make trap doors and physics volumes and emitters to make the traps. one of my personal favs is to make basicly a cross cut set of saw blades spinning so that when you stand on the trap door which is brillantly hidden from the unattentive player he steps on the kactor and it falls down and you fall into the equivalant of a cross cut paper shredder and at the bottom is a pool of blood, gibs, and skeletons.

kactors don't replicate if I remember correctly. Do they work online or have you tested it?

I use karma spikes to get corpses to stay in place. Karma works a little differently in UT2k4 than in other engines, and corpses tend to have the physical properties of globs of jello when it comes to spikes. They will more often bounce than stick. However, if the spikes move into position quickly enough, they can stick the corpse in place, keeping it from sliding away. In my maps, I trigger the karma structures to move into place instantly, with a move time of 0. This ensures that they catch the corpse properly. Depending on the kind of trap, and how you want the corpses to get held, different karma structures may be neccessary. Spikes work well for most things, but there may be times when you need more of a block or a combination of types.
