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.

  1. a claymore is a 2 handed sword, not really mythological at all and certainly not religious
    a more useful list would be classifying them by what they imply
    ie, power is a powerful class
    as would be bear and hog
    whereas cobra, saboteur, and the like would be stealth
    marksman and scout are militant, and so on

  2. Implication was not an issue, the issue was much more akin to Grammatical Tenses, where someone would switch tenses mid sentence or paragraph with no transition. It would not make sense to use titles like Bunker or Firebase with titles like Cobra or Hog, unless for a very specific game type design, that I for one have been unable to find a situation for. That exact usage, along with the inclusion of Royal Zealot, was the reasoning behind this entire first portion of the article. The Game was KotH, low grav, with all jet packs, on a blank slate, titled (both game and map), FieldRunners. Needless to say, those people will never be allowed to host customs at one of my LAN parties again. Just saying.

    The Claymore issue, on the other hand, was an accident. I meant for it to be in the SciFi listing, as I am well aware of the weapon of the same name. I can't remember a reference to Claymores in the Bungie universe, so I felt it would work as a reference to the manga, as many persons have thought this, and expressed it to me.
