Good day,
FAR archives are an archive format used for storing uncompressed game data for The Sims (2000), and as far as I know they are not detected by file(1).

Attached is a simple magic file that will recognize FAR files, using both the signature "FAR!byAZ" as well as the version number directly after that (always 1 as these files were likely not used after the first game).

Best wishes,
