How to prevent an Inventory to disappear when crushed?

I just noticed weapon pickups disappear when a mover crushes them, how can I prevent this from happening?

See code of mover (I guess that Inventory's owner is None):
Code: Select all
// Return true to abort, false to continue.
function bool EncroachingOn( actor Other ) {
...
   if ( Other.IsA('Fragment') || (Other.IsA('Inventory') && (Other.Owner == None)) )
   {
      Other.Destroy();
      return false;
   }
...
Use a custom mover; maybe you can manipulate existing code by XC_Engine.

Before you get crushed, throw all your weapons away!

Tossed weapons should have bCollideWorld set to false.
The right question is: how you'll set that var at the right time?

I'm not talking about Weapons only, and not only about tossed weapons, a Mover is an Actor, so the problem is bCollideActor, which is needed if you want a pawn to pick that inventory up.
