What is a .BIC file?

The .BIC file extension is associated with a type of game file specifically used by the video game Civilization 3, where it serves as a Scenario File. However, it is also notably used by another game called Neverwinter Nights, which is a third-person role-playing game developed by BioWare. In the context of Neverwinter Nights, the .BIC file saves important character information. This includes details such as the character's gender, race, class (type of character in terms of abilities and roles), and abilities (skills and powers). Additionally, it records the character's name and the items they carry in their inventory, which are the tools and equipment the character uses in the game.

These .BIC files are versatile as they can store information for characters that are used in single-player mode as well as those used in multiplayer realms, where multiple players interact in the same game environment.

To open a .BIC file, you would typically use the BioWare Neverwinter Nights program. This is the software that originally creates and can manage these files, allowing players to load their character data into the game. There are no commonly known alternative programs that can effectively open and process .BIC files for editing or viewing outside of the Neverwinter Nights game software.
