Player Traps Mod

This Mod adds a few traps that you can use against other players. These traps are not meant for zombies.

Craft a spike trap out of planks and nails
The spike trap will give injury to both feet of the one who steps on it, the trap will then have to have more nails added to it to be used again

The bear trap cannot be crafted but can be found in crates
The bear trap will also activate when stepped on and give either a deep wound or fracture to either the left or right lower leg when stepped on

Propane Tank Trap can be crafted with Planks, nails, pistol, 9mm bullets, thread and of course one propane tank full.
When a player trips the wire the pistol will fire into the propane tank resulting in an explosion

Hi. About 5y ago I made an attempt of creating a craftable zombie trap. I was inspired mainly by traps from 7 Days To Die game I was also playing. My attempt failed obviously as I didn't know a bunch about Lua or how to write any code at all, started to learn but then my daughter was born and i couldn't find time anymore. My files were also deleted from my computer apart from one icon and 2 jpegs I found in the net. Here is the link if your interested.
I truly would like to have traps system in the game as it would benefit many players if not all.
Having graves now in PZ would make an opportunistic attempt to craft spike pit placing sharpened wooden stick in the grave and boom trap is ready. sadly I have no idea how to make it possible but you may have enough knowledge in coding and willing to try.

A hole i think it will be the more efficient way or maybe something with stick to impale z

give me some ideas about what kind of traps would work on zombies and I might make/update mod
though keep in mind zombie objects are not saved / reloaded when out of cell. this means if I mark a zombie and say it is trapped or cant move etc. when you leave cell or quit game then come back, a new zombie is just spawned, rather than loading old zombies.
this is part of the game engine, so if you lock up a white male zombies in a room, then leave and come back, it may turn into a female black zombies next time you leave/comeback from other cell or rejoin game.
while that kind of machanice is part of the game engine kind of destroys any change to make a zombie "trapping" trap, we could still make traps that damage/injure zombies

it was just meant for players, or NPCs not zombies
IRL i dont think a nail trap would do anything to a zombie (if zombies could be real IRL)
a bear trap might turn one into a crawler, but that would not be a good thing

So this doesnt do any damage to the zombies right and only other players.. :(

will these deal damage to NPC's in the mod super survivors?

Also perhaps a shotgun trap that will lodge a bullet in (a group) of players with a similar effect with zombies but killing them.

Pretty good for MP PvP and any of the survivors mods. Still, would be good for zombies. An idea for the bear and spike trap for zombies: Bear traps will turn any zombie that steps on it into a crawler and put that zombie near death, and spike traps will weaken and slow down a zombie that steps on it. The spike trap should also have multiple uses due to how useless it is.

Really hoped these would've helped against Zombies :( really the implementation isn't that hard. Bear traps could keep zombies stuck in place, nail traps could slow them down significantly and possibly have a chance at keeping them stuck in place. A nail wall would be effective and could potentially kill a Zombie considering their tendency to bash their heads against walls.
