What is a CTY file?

Cty file extension has SimCity City file type, developed by Maxis, which is associated with the "game files" category.

Earlier versions of the SimCity game used these city data files. They contain city layouts and city object (buildings, trees, roads, etc.), city settings, and the amount of money the city starts with. CTY files are meant to define a starting point for players when building a city. The game saves default city settings in the "default.cty" file.
