The only way (at least that I know of) to change color is to split your data and do several scatterplots: twoway (scatter ... if z>=9, ... mcolor(gs12)) (scatter ... if z>7.5 & z<9, ... mcolor(gs8)) (scatter ... if z<7.5, ... mcolor(gs4)) This can probably be automated with a ~15 line wrapper program that takes in z, y, z and the thresholds. Graphics in R is notably stronger than in Stata.
