Why not simply save it to a dedicated slot you don't use again and never save over.
Then when you want to start your custom "first turn orders done" scenario simply load that save and start a new game from it each time.
I already have dedicated first-day save slots. However, as mentioned by others, when starting from a day-one save slot and playing against the AI, it uses the same strategic scripts. The AI picks different strategic scripts every time a brand new scenario is started, but this does not occur when starting from a first day save slot.
I wanted to know if there is a way to actually save the pre-turn 1st day orders to the campaign file itself, not as a dedicated save slot after the campaign is selected. That way, a ton of time can be saved, many of the routine orders would already be applied, and first-turn random strategic AI scripts will apply.
EDIT: ...or, is it possible to save a fist-day save slot as a campaign that can be selected from the campaign selection menu? Would random AI scripts still apply, or would they be locked to that particular campaign? Hmmm...
