You can use the "set" command in the console to change various
settings in the game, and some of those have been deemed cheats.

The "Drawscale" setting refers to the size of objects. I have seen a
cheat config in circulation that sets the Z-axis scale of the shield
pickup to a huge number, making the shieldpack appear to be about 50
feet tall, so that you can tell if it has spawned from all the way
across the map.

It's possible that UTSecure is flagging players for this now. Good.

Of course, it's also possible that UTSecure is erroneously flagging
players. Bad.
