If anyone can help me with these things that will be great!
If you want the door to trigger the way to another map, you need to have something to interact with at that spot.
Perhaps an invisible object around a 10x10 in size at that location with a trigger to a popup asking if you want to get on the Turbolift. When you make your next objective on the next map (deck), you will get the map transfer box and will be able to move from there to the next map at that point.
As an example:
Your character approaches the door to the turbolift. When the character reaches the invisible object, set a dialogue tree to trigger at component reached (invisible object) and ask in a dialogue: Do you want to use the turbolift to go to Deck 5?
(That will imply that the door is a turbolift entrance)
The next thing in your storyline should be an objective on the next deck's map. This will trigger the Map Transfer box to appear above the objective in the storyline tree and in the game, and it will pop up right after you interaction with the invisible object is complete, then you can proceed with the example below.
You can make the transfer map text to read: Proceed to the deck 5.
You can have the button read: Use the turbolift.
After you do that, you will spawn at the next map's location.
This is just one way to do this, there are other ways. Just an FYI you can try to accomplish your goal if
I am understanding what you want to accomplish correctly.
You can get alot of great instructional info at StarbaseUGC and the Youtube video tutorials that can help you understand these thing as well. They assisted me very much in my learning process.
