Description

SCF files are used by SimTown, a simulation game based on SimCity. They contain sound effects and other audio data used by the game.

SimTown is a small-scale version of SimCity. It allows players to build towns with houses, parks, business, streets, and other content. The game was released in 1995 and has since been discontinued.

IMPORTANT: SimTown has been known to alter the standard SCF file association in Windows. This may cause the "Show Desktop" and "View Channels" icons in the Task Bar to change to SimTown icons.
