Didn't understand your problem exactly but did you check the official Playmaker videos on Youtube? https://www.youtube.com/user/HutongGamesLLC/videos
They should cover most of the basics. there is all so one about Triggers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYwkd80T5Zk

Hey Yuki,

As I understand than you can't get the actions to fire when your player is colliding with your traps and pickups.

Here are some things to check:

1. Make sure that your player has Rigidbody attacked to it, so it can detect collisions and/or triggers.

2. Check if the pick ups, traps and player has proper tags.

3. Double check if pickup colliders (and other props) are marked as trigger.

4.And last thing to make sure is that everything is set up right with Playmaker action Trigger event. Check the tag in the action and make sure that the right event is firing.

After you check all these things it should be working!

If you have any questions let me know!

Best,
Haralds
