Opening SCS files

Did your computer fail to open a SCS file? We explain what SCS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your SCS files.

What is a SCS file?

Files that contain the .scs file extension are most commonly associated with SimCity computer gaming applications. The SCS files contain saved game files that have been created by the SimCity Societies Destinations or SimCity Societies games.

These two software games allow users to create cities and societies, managing the societies and society members. The SCS files that are used by the programs store the saved game play progress as the user plays the game. This allows the user to stop playing at any time and then resume the game play at the same point in which they left off.

The Lotus ScreenCam software program has also been known to use the .scs file suffix. These SCS files contain script files that are used by the software application.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
