Fractal Terrains Pro (FT) stores climate colour data in a simple text file. This file has a ".clr" extension and contains RGB colour values for each climate type. The file may be edited with any text editor (e.g., Notepad, TextPad, EditPad, et al.)
We've included the Chimera-style climate palette file here, but if you want to see what makes it tick, follow these steps:
Create a new TEXT file in Windows, using your favourite text editor
Name the file "climate_chimera.clr"
Open the file and paste in the following contents:
Save the file and close it (suggested path: "/FT/Coloring/climate_chimera.clr").
Select Map -> Lighting and Colour
Select the Climate tab
Click the Load button
Browse to "climate_chimera.clr" (step #4) and click Open
Click Apply and close the Lighting and Colour dialogue
Select Map -> Show Climate
Note that these colours won't always map properly if you export the FT file to Campaign Cartographer 2, but you can modify CC2's palette to address this minor issue.
The image shown at right is a sample world, represented as an FT climate map (click on the image to open a larger view in a new window). For the curious, the map projection is Miller Cylindrical, and gridlines are shown at 30° from the equator, shown at the midpoint of the map's horizontal axis.
