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:
