What is a TIMBER file?
A TIMBER file is a saved game or map used by Mechanistry Timberborn, a city-building video game. It is a .ZIP file that contains a .JSON file that describes the saved game or map. Players often share TIMBER files with each other online, to distribute custom game maps.
In Timberborn, players play as beavers constructing a steampunk city. The game is available for Windows and macOS.
Timberborn saves players' saved games and the game's game maps in TIMBER files. These files are ZIP packages that contain a JSON file. The JSON file describes either the saved game or game map in human-readable plain text that players can edit.

How to open a TIMBER file
You can open a TIMBER file with Timberborn (Windows, Mac). To do so, place the file in the correct Timberborn sub-directory (noted above). Then, either resume the saved game your TIMBER file contains, or select the map your TIMBER file contains while starting a new game or in Timberborn's map editor.
If you want to edit the JSON file a TIMBER file contains, first unzip the file using any Zip-decompression tool. Then, open and edit the JSON file in any text editor.
