I'm trying to work out how to put mountains in the desert in my mod. Looking at the base-game map I see it is possible to have mountains that are shaded differently to the standard light colour. For example in Turkey you can see bare-topped mountains that are both light in colour and darker. Opening the 1914 Call To Arms scenario in the editor I can see that the same terrain-type is used for both mountains - for example (211,112) uses terrain-type 230, whilst (215,109) is also terrain-type 230, but they are clearly differently coloured and one looks more "desert" than the other.

How is this different colouring achieved?

Hi

This is achieved by setting the Weather Zones for the relevant area, so that one will be temperate and the other arid, and that changes the display!
