Not really, those aspects are controlled by the core mechanics of the game. There are workarounds to be sure, but none of them are elegant and faultless.
In any case, AoK's levelling-up system affects all units at once, unlike in BFME, which is IMO a better (less tedious) approach.

The computer player isn't able to cope with ToME's new features, but thankfully we've got helpers to work on a new AI for ToME. That will be available in the next update, along with heroes!

Excellent game. Units are have amazing detail. I don't like the design of the Elven buildings but hey, that's just opinion. I haven't noticed any glaring glitches. **Just a few problems... After opening the game a few times, it stopped playing 'Lord of the Rings main theme' and replaced it with the standard medley. I suppose that if I reinstalled it, it would work just fine but I'm far too lazy. I noticed that Rohan, as an AI, will build the Hornburg rather than the standard castle for that type…
