I don't think AI works except for testing purposes. You can't "break" what didn't work in the first place! AI is misnamed and isn't artificial intelligence. It is scripting - something impossible to do for a game on this scale with the many possibilities over time.
There are several different map systems. Broadly they fall into two categories, stock map type and extended map type. I have some panels with incorrect historical names removed if you are interested in them.
There are different kinds of art. What kind are you interested in? Many stock art items are available in much improved forms.
Every AI in the world is "scripted." It's the nature of if then statements! Unless of course what you are trying to say is that the AI in WiTPE is unadaptively scripted, which would be sad.
In any case, I'm not an AI only person generally, and I imagine I will eventually PBE. It's just that, I don't believe in being fodder for veteran players, and I'd like to make a go at the AI while learning the game. So in essence, I AM using it for testing purposes!
My request is only to say that I'm all about variant scenarios, but if I can't use them in conjunction with playing against the AI they are not very useful to me at the moment!
I'm lying, I am prepared to be fodder for veteran players in as much as no matter how experienced I get with the AI, the first multiplayer game is usually always a disaster. I just don't want to be so terrible that the game isn't worth my opponents time!
