Questions - L4D2 Authoring Tools

I have been working on a Left4Dead2 Authoring Tools survival map in the Hammer World Editor, but I haven't gotten far. This is because I have been trying to figure out why certain things won't work before I bother working on the grand image. Here are some things that are giving me a hard time:

1) Events/Triggers. I have watched several videos online about triggers and making "ontouch" start functions for different items, but I can't get it to work. I have tried something simple like opening a gate upon walking through an "ontouch" func_ entity. That wasn't working either..

2) Water. Why is it that the survivors can walk into my bodies of water and walk around beneath the surface as though it is Half-Life 2? They're supposed to die upon being submerged - anyone know how to make that happen?

There are plenty of issues I have been having in L4D2 Authoring Tools, but for now, any descriptions on how to achieve these two items would be greatly appreciated. YouTube is no longer helpful and I can't seem to figure it out. Thanks much!

1) Make sure you have the right flags set for the trigger in the flags tab. You need the Clients flag for survivors/SI to trigger it. Also, you'll probably want to use the OnStartTouch output instead.

2) That's done with a tigger_hurt entity.

If you run into more issues, the dev wiki also has a lot of good resources on how a lot of things are set up.

Youtube and people who work with hammer (like me) can always help ya. There are some great tutorials for hammer out there:
