I'm not going to take credit for discovering it, as I was told by "a little bird", but I thought I would show you guys this special trick.

The Auto Battle Generator is likely something used by Stainless Steel to balance and test units. It creates a set of tiggers when ran pits units in a duel and logs the results, which include health and time to kill. Its really very amusing when you set up mismatches such as King Tigers vs Conscripts. I'm sure Automatch players can use this to effectively test units and see what is better. Scenario designers can not distribute it, however, because something is written to memory which makes it one time only. At least I haven't been able to distribute it.

To get it, open up the scenario editor and hold Ctrl + Alt + Shift then press B. A menu drops down which allows you to select two units.

Resource Ammount controls how much units are created per round.
Time Limit obviously controls how long a round will go.
Acceptable Variance controls how much more of a certain unit than another can there be.
Max Iterations controls how much rounds per match (scenario ends after).

You guys can probably figure out more about this and the triggers used to do it than me. So get to work!

Actually, those were the civs that were removed from Empires . They may or may not appear with an expansion.

And,
Spain: Superpower of the world during the rule of King Phillip.
Portugal: Reason why United States exists. Began with trade routes to Far East and then expanded to colonization, which gave an example for the jealous Spainish, Franch and English to follow.

    I was wondering when you guys were going to find this one! This was a little tool that one of our designers, Richard "Methos" Bishop had me put together to help him automate some balance testing that he and his team were doing by hand. I told him the testing could be done with a handful of scenario triggers and he held me to my word to make it work. Hope you have fun with it.
