    Bloking volume Properties-> BlockedClass-> AoBuzzerPawn
    && bClassBlocker True. That is so powerful. I didn't know that thanks.

    Buzzers suicide

    I have a map with a lava pool. There is a passage that leads to a computer that must be hacked. I want buzzers to start attacking the player (started using event). So I use spawners but I have to place them at least 800 units away from the computer, so that the player doesn't see them spawning. The problem is that buzzers never reach the player, because they fall to the lava and die. I have tried raising their speed scale, but it looks very funny buzzers flying 3 times faster than normal.(plus without auto-aim you can't kill them). Is there anything else I can do, or I should change my idea. And generally these buzzers fly or just moving staight until they find an enemy or an obstacle?

    For a dds it must also be a multiple of 4

    DXT (.dds) compression

    Use DXT1 if you don't use alpha channels. Use DXT3 or 5 for alpha (there's a slight difference)

    If you use .bmp or .tga your map/package will be huge

    Textures-Compressing

    What compression is better for the textures that we can import?
    Is there any serious difference between the types? (Both in quality and size)

    No it's not. Many people still don't know how to map for ut2004. It may seem alot do, But if you managed to get the figures of the amount of people mapped for ut2004, And the amount that just simply play. I bet playing would be at least 2 times greater.
