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.

More Information

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.

An SCS file may also be used by video games developed with SCS Software's Prism3D technology, including some Deer Hunter games. It contains game data, such as 3D models, audio, scripts, missions, maps, and other assets. SCS files are used as containers for bundling resources into a finished game.

More Information

SCS files can be unpacked into their underlying files and folders using WinRAR. They may also be re-packaged with WinRAR. Some gamers use this as a means to modify game content.

NOTE: SCS files are stored in an uncompressed format and are typically very large in size.
