What is a .SSL file?

The .SSL file extension stands for Sunlight ScanLibrary File, which is primarily associated with the video games Fallout 1 and Fallout 2. These games are set in a post-apocalyptic world and are known for their open-world exploration and rich storytelling. The .SSL files contain scripts that are crucial for the games' functionality. These scripts manage various aspects of the game such as the behavior and existence of non-player characters (NPCs), the dialogue exchanged between characters, and how objects on the game map interact and behave. Essentially, these files help define and control many elements that players interact with during the game.

To open or edit .SSL files, you can use a program called Jargo Fallout Script Editor. This tool is designed to handle the specific scripting language used in the Fallout games' .SSL files. Additionally, .SSL files can be edited with ScanLibrary, a program included with the Sunlight Suite, which is typically used for editing light fixtures.

It's important to note that the .SSL file format has been updated to a newer version known as .SSL2. This newer format is used with Sunlite Suite 2, a more advanced version of the original software. If you have older .SSL files, you can upgrade them to the .SSL2 format using Sunlite Suite 2 to take advantage of the newer software's features and improvements.
