Load-Outs: Made in China



When constructing Game Types, one of the largest obstacles to overcome is the creation of Loadouts. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are a few things to keep in mind when putting these together, so, to begin simply, a listing and reference of the basic settings between them:

Primary Weapon
 Sets Primary Weapon, will be overridden by Weapons and Vehicles and PowerUps settings.

Secondary Weapon
 Sets Secondary Weapon, will be overridden by Weapons and Vehicles and PowerUps settings.

Equipment
 Sets Equipment.

Grenades
 Sets Grenades.
 Unchanged | Map Default | No Grenades | 1x Frag | 2x Frag | 3x Frag | 4x Frag | 1x Plasma | 2x Plasma | 3x Plasma | 4x Plasma | 1x Each | 2x Each | 3x Each | 4x Each 


Hidden (Toggle)
 Decides whether or not the Load Out will be selectable ingame.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The next biggest item to cover is the plethora of names available to them, the expanse of which I have decided to categorize, as I have seen far too much misuse of names in conjunction with each other (such as usages of "Ling Ling" or "Pookie" in what would usually be considered serious Game Types).

More will be coming soon, discussing the balancing of Load Outs, specifically in the combination of Equipment with Weapons and Grenades to create a custom character experience.
