.SK File Association 2

An SK file is a script file written in the Skript language, which is used to write scripts that modify gameplay in Minecraft. It stores plain text code that is run by the Skript plugin in Minecraft when an event in the game triggers it, such as the action of a player or passage of a certain amount of time in the game.

You will most likely only encounter an SK file if you use the Skript plugin with Minecraft to adjust or add gameplay features. You may also receive an SK file via email or cloud storage service from another Minecraft gamer who utilizes Skript and is looking to share a script with you.

In order to use the SK file with Minecraft, you need to install the Skript plugin. After installing the plugin, place the SK file in the Skript/scripts/ directory.

How do I open an SK file?

You can open and edit SK files with SkIDE, which is an open-source IDE for Skript that provides code highlighting and auto-complete capabilities.

Since SK files are saved in plain text, you can use text editors, such as the cross-platform Microsoft Visual Studio Code or Sublime Text, to view and edit the files.

You can also use a plain text editor bundled with your operating system. In Windows, you can use Microsoft Notepad or Microsoft WordPad, and in macOS you can use Apple TextEdit.
