I made some experimental AoE 1 RMS scripts.
They are called “[ROR]_Castle_Paradise_Island” and “[ROR]_Castle_TeamMoats” in the mod section.
You start with a scout and an AoE 2 Castle in addition to the standard villagers and TC.
This should result in a long game that won’t just be over in the tool age due to rushing. So if you want to have a long all-out iron age game this is for you. I also recommend playing on a larger map.
Give it a go and let me know if it results in some interesting games!
