File used by SimCity 4, a game where players build cities; contains a 3D model of a prop or building; used for adding custom objects to a city; can be described with a .SC4DESC file and placed within a lot using a .SC4LOT file.
SC4MODEL files can be created with Building Architect, which is part of the Building Architect Tool (BAT) suite. Other tools in the suite include the Plug-in Manager (for packaging plug-ins) and the Lot Editor Tool (LET), which allows users to place plug-ins on lots in the game.
SC4MODEL files are often packaged into .DAT files along with several other types of game files.
