Code:
 Build 27 Loadouts (or how to make metagame compatible mods)
Alright so, a loadout is what is used in the metagame for bunker blueprints and AI ordering, aswell as automatically fed over to the presets menu in the buy menu.
In order to use a tech with the metagame, it has to have a name that contains "tech".

So "ModuleName = Coalition Tech" instead of "ModuleName = Coalition"

In B27 the tech loadouts are in Tech.rte/Loadouts.ini.

MAke sure to put it last in the index.ini like this:
Code:
DataModule
   ModuleName = Coalition Tech
   IconFile = ContentFile
      Path = Coalition.rte/ModuleIcon.bmp
   IncludeFile = Coalition.rte/Effects/Effects.ini
   IncludeFile = Coalition.rte/Devices/Devices.ini
   IncludeFile = Coalition.rte/Actors/Actors.ini
   IncludeFile = Coalition.rte/Loadouts.ini



Here's how a standard loadout looks like:
Code:
AddLoadout = Loadout
   PresetName = Infantry Light
   DeliveryCraft = ACRocket
      PresetName = Base.rte/Rocket MK1
   AddCargoItem = AHuman
      PresetName = Coalition.rte/Soldier Light
   AddCargoItem = HDFirearm
      PresetName = Coalition.rte/Assault Rifle
   AddCargoItem = TDExplosive
      PresetName = Coalition.rte/Grenade


Current deployment loadout names:


Default (Think of this as Assault infantry)

Infantry Brain

Infantry Light

Infantry CQB

Infantry Heavy

Infantry Sniper

Infantry Grenadier (RPG or grenade launcher primary usually)

Infantry Engineer (unit with heavier digger)

Mecha (dreadnought etc)

Turret (colition gatling turret etc.)



By following this your mod should be metagame compatible, knock yourself out. 


I don't remember where I got this from but I followed this when I made mine. It may be outdated though..

Most, if not all .ini properties are case sensitive.

    ACDropShip*
    PresetName*
    AHuman*

Nope, it most definitely should be the problem.

Double-check capitalization.

Could not match property Error happened in bunkbust.rte/loadouts.ini at line 10!

and here is my loadouts.ini

Code:
AddLoadout = Loadout
   PresetName = Default
   DeliveryCraft = ACDropShip
      PresetName = Bunkbust.rte/bunker buster dropship
   AddCargoItem = AHuman
      PresetName = bunkbust.rte/Bunkerbuster
   AddCargoItem = HDFirearm
      PresetName = bunkbust.rte/autokar98
 
AddLoadout = Loadout
   PresetName = Infantry Brain
   DeliveryCraft = ACDropShip
      PresetName = Bunkbust.rte/bunker buster dropship
   AddCargoItem = AHuman
      PresetName = Base.rte/Brain robot
   AddCargoItem = HDFirearm
      PresetName = bunkbust.rte/autokar98

AddLoadout = Loadout
   PresetName = Infantry light
      PresetName = Bunkbust.rte/bunker buster dropship
   AddCargoItem = AHuman
      PresetName = bunkbust.rte/bunker buster
   AddCargoItem = HDFirearm
      PresetName = bunkbust.rte/Blunderbanshee

AddLoadout = Loadout
   PresetName = Infantry CQB
      PresetName = Bunkbust.rte/bunker buster dropship
   AddCargoItem = AHuman
      PresetName = bunkbust.rte/bunker buster
   AddCargoItem = HDFirearm
      PresetName = bunkbust.rte/Blunderkick

AddLoadout = Loadout
   PresetName = Infantry Heavy
      PresetName = Bunkbust.rte/bunker buster dropship
   AddCargoItem = AHuman


and when i comment out line 10 it does it again at line 19 and all of the Addloadout = Loadout`s after that

You should start by defining your craft properly.
Code:
AddLoadout = Loadout
   PresetName = Infantry light
   DeliveryCraft = ACDropShip   // this line is missing in many loadouts
      PresetName = Bunkbust.rte/bunker buster dropship
   AddCargoItem = AHuman
      PresetName = bunkbust.rte/bunker buster
   AddCargoItem = HDFirearm
      PresetName = bunkbust.rte/Blunderbanshee
