One of the many draw backs to the editor in AOK is the fact that units can only be placed one unit per square, that is they can’t be placed in close formation, like the close formations you can attain while playing the game. Well as usual there is a work around to this problem.
For further information please read the enclosed document.
Due to higher than expected interest in this utility, I’ve updated to include all standard units that can be placed in close formation. I’ve also included instructions in the template of how to achieve the trick. Special thanks DarckRedd for suggesting I update.

This utility is a template of most of the Age of Empires units placed only 1/2 a square apart not a whole. This is useful becuase it makes armies look bigger and it doesn't take up as much space on the map. Beserker jerker has also taught us how to do this ourselves.

Saves space in maps like sieges where alot of units are needed in small space
Keep a look out for this trick in my upcoming campaigns:P
