FAR Edit

Browse contents of FAR archive files from The Sims


FarEdit is a utility program that allows you to view and edit FAR archive files. FAR files are collections of files, compacted into one single file for easy transport. The Sims uses FAR files to pull together various types like objects, bitmaps, skins, UI graphics and meshes. With the FAR Editor you can preview bitmaps, view text files and export single files or entire trees. In fact, the FAR Editor allows you to create your own FAR files so you can package together your own collections and share them with other people!


  • Browse contents of FAR archive files from any expansion pack
  • Preview bitmaps and objects from inside FAR files without extracting
  • Extract individual files or entire sets of files to your hard drive for editing
  • Create your own FAR files for object distribution
