I am trying to get a foot back into AoE 2 after not having played it for 15 years. I would like to get a gut feeling for how well different units do against one another and how powerful upgrades are and so on. Maybe even practice some beginner level micro. As such, I would like some quick and consistent way to generate units and buildings, select or deselect different upgrades for each of the two armies, and then pit them against one another.
What is the easiest framework for doing something like this? I am at the moment running AoE2 HD on Steam.
