What is an SCS file?
An SCS file is a saved game file created by SimCity Societies or SimCity Societies Destinations, two related games that allow players to create and simulate their own cities and societies. It contains a city created during gameplay. SCS files are used for saving cities and sharing game states with friends.
SCS files are typically saved in the following directory:
My Documents\Simcity Societies\User Data\[playername]\Save Games
NOTE: SCS files are saved with two corresponding .TGA files, <savename>MiniMapBG.tga and <savename>.tga. The TGA files are not necessary to load a saved game, but no mini map preview is available without them.
