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.

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.
