What is a .BIX file?

The .BIX file is a type of game file used by the video game "Sid Meier's Civilization III," which is a strategy game where players build and manage their own empires. This file can either be a saved game, where a player's progress is stored so they can continue playing later, or a scenario file. A scenario file sets up specific world conditions and challenges that the player must overcome while competing against other empires in the game.

To open a .BIX file, you need to have the game "Sid Meier's Civilization III" installed on your computer. This game is made by Take-Two Interactive. Specifically, .BIX files are associated with "Civilization III: Play the World," which is an expansion pack for the original game that focuses on multiplayer gameplay. These files are recognized and can be used by version 11.0 and later of this expansion pack.

In simple terms, if you have a .BIX file, it means you have a saved game or a special game scenario for "Sid Meier's Civilization III," and you can open it by using the game itself, provided you have the correct version of the "Play the World" expansion.
