There is a Map Tutorial here which was done by Matthew "theNord" Nordaus, who was a developer on Armada II. He spent a lot of time answering questions when the game was being made. A great guy.

You can't put 'Map Units' on the map in Armada II. If you want to do that you need to do a Assault Map.

As for the starts, lay down a path and name it Camera_1 for start 1.

The Map Tutorial covers all of this if you follow the instructions.

Assault Maps can only be played only.

The starting units are default and you don't have to add a starting base.

You can add AI units to the map. Just set them to a team that is not in use. For instance you can add a Borg team in the middle of the map with stations built etc.

You can still put derelicts on the map. I think.

I think you put them on a Team that is not in use and take all of the crew off of the ship. You can do this by going into the properties (double click on the ship).
