SC4 Terraformer (SC4TF) is a region terrain editing tool made by wouanagaine.
Update 20 August 2023: MSVCP71.dll added to download, making it easier to get SC4TF up and running.
Low-elevation Color Schemes for SC4 Mapper & Terraformer.
I've used Swordmaster's excellent Red-Purple color scheme for SC4 mapper for years, but wanted something with a tighter gradient at lower elevations. Taking a page from his book, I made two variations:
- Enhanced, based on the Red-Purple scheme
- Muted, based on the Brown scheme.
These color schemes are intended for regions with terrain below 1600 meters; anything over that height will just appear white on the map. Particular emphasis was put on differentiating elevation in the first 5 meters above sea level to make planning harbors easier.
To use these color schemes with SC4 Mapper, replace the appropriate basicColors.ini file in the following directory:
C:Program Files (x86)SC4 Mapper 2013
To use this color scheme with SC4 Terraformer, replace the appropriate basicColors.ini file in the following directory:
C:Program Files (x86)SC4TFV11datas
For users who create custom region heightmaps in photoshop this gradient can be used to get an interactive preview of what the region will look like when rendered in-game, along with the correct water level.
See readme.txt for usage instructions.
