you can try somehting like this:

 

entity $lvl1 = input entity level 'Select first'
entity $lvl2 = input entity level 'Select second'


EDIT MODEL ALL DESELECT ALL

EDIT LEVEL ${lvl1.Name} SELECT WIREFRAME
EDIT LEVEL ${lvl2.Name} SELECT WIREFRAME

string $p = new_entity_name('pattern')
CREATE PATTERN ;
EDIT PATTERN ${p} INSERT MODEL

EDIT PATTERN ${p} DESELECT ALL
EDIT PATTERN ${p} SELECT DUPLICATES


if number_selected('pattern', $p) != 0 {
	message info 'Equal'
} else {
	message info 'Not Equal'
}

purge pattern ${p} yes

 

I did not tested this properly, there might be some edge cases...

you can use this command to filter:

EDIT SELECTION MODEL FILTER '255, 128, 0'

 

entity $lvl1 = input entity level 'Select first'
entity $lvl2 = input entity level 'Select second'


EDIT MODEL ALL DESELECT ALL

EDIT LEVEL ${lvl1.Name} SELECT WIREFRAME
EDIT LEVEL ${lvl2.Name} SELECT WIREFRAME

//your color
EDIT SELECTION MODEL FILTER '255, 128, 26'

string $p = new_entity_name('pattern')
CREATE PATTERN ;
EDIT PATTERN ${p} INSERT MODEL

EDIT PATTERN ${p} DESELECT ALL
EDIT PATTERN ${p} SELECT DUPLICATES


if number_selected('pattern', $p) != 0 {
	message info 'Equal'
} else {
	message info 'Not Equal'
}

purge pattern ${p} yes
