    We don't have loadouts in the game, but if you want to change your loadouts default values, I believe it's possible to do it with scripts.

    DISCLAIMER: This might cause issues especially during updates,advanced users only and don't QQ if the game doesn't let you spawn or whatever, thats life.


    1) Go to empires/scripts
    2) Open emp_classes.txt
    3) Locate the class and faction you desire
    4) Change the order of weapons in any specific section, the topmost weapon will be your default selection. E.G.

    Default:
    Code:
    			BOX_1		
    			{
    				"Weapon_Count"		"4" //5 is too many!
    				"Weapon_Choice_0"	"PRIMARY_NF_SMG2"
    				"Weapon_Choice_1"	"PRIMARY_NF_SMG3"		
    				"Weapon_Choice_2"	"PRIMARY_NF_SHOTGUN"
    				"Weapon_Choice_3"	"PRIMARY_NF_HMG"
    			}
    
    Changes to:

    Code:
    			BOX_1		
    			{
    				"Weapon_Count"		"4" //5 is too many!
    				"Weapon_Choice_0"	"PRIMARY_NF_SMG3"
    				"Weapon_Choice_1"	"PRIMARY_NF_SMG2"		
    				"Weapon_Choice_2"	"PRIMARY_NF_SHOTGUN"
    				"Weapon_Choice_3"	"PRIMARY_NF_HMG"
    			}
    
    Now SMG3 is the default weapon for scout in your game.

    I only did basic testing but now you can set up your default loadout however the f uck you want. Every time the game patches it'll override this so you'll need to do it again, this isn't a feature it's basically a hack so don't come crying to me when it blows up or stops working.

    Enjoy your loadouts

    GUI overhaul should also introduce custom per-class loadouts that you can name and save.

    Do the loadouts also include predetermined skill picks?

    Is music even possible? When source loads anything it seems to take like 100% of your power to do it, can't alt tab and everything runs like shit when it does.

    For some reason I remember counterstrike playing the first track of a cd I had in the disk drive whenever it was loading a map.

    There is loading music in the game though, it just never plays. Shame because it is good stuff.

    It runs on a different program thread using FMOD. Loading screen can't show videos or animations though because of that reason
