Okay, well basically I used to play a lot of Trivium and such in drop d but for the last year or so I've been playing in D or drop C but as i've come to get a greater understanding of the feel on my guitar i've noticed when in drop c I have so much slack that triplets can sometimes be annoying.

Anyway I restrung my guitar recently with a heavier string gage (.10) to have some more 'tightness' but I strung up to standard and then back down to D standard and I've found it just as it was before, so I was wondering if there was a specific way to string my guitar to dropped tunings so that it'll be more suited for them.

If you were at .9's, and went to .10s, it wouldn't have made that big of a difference. Look at the skinny top heavy bottom from ernie ball type strings. You're going to need a larger gauge than .10 to be able to have the tension you want in drop c or d standard. You'll definitely also need to readjust intonation... but this is the wrong forum anyway.
