The scenery is offered in two versions sold separately, one for FS2004 and another for FSX.

BluePrint Simulation’s version of KDFW is by far the most detailed and accurate available for the Microsoft Flight Simulator. It depicts DFW as it exists today including detailed renditions of its five terminals, the inter-terminal elevated tram and other terminal complex components. The most significant air traffic control, aircraft maintenance and cargo facilities are also included. All 161 jetway-equipped airline gates have been positioned as accurately as possible based on the most current aerial photography available and information obtained from DFW’s official web site. All gates are numbered and assigned to the corresponding airline based on the most recent information available.

Each 3D model is unique and painstakingly textured to accurately represent the real-life structure. Special attention was paid to the new international terminal (D) and its complex curved lines and surfaces. Each boarding gate is fitted with a unique jetway model designed to represent the real equipment. Each jetway is also numbered and labeled according to its real life user. Finally, each terminal is populated with a significant number of optional static vehicles customized to match the airline using of each gate. Finally, custom-made models for all relevant air traffic control, cargo and maintenance facilities are included. In most cases, maintenance hangars are usable. Due to the intrinsic complexity of the scenery, we included only a small fraction of the total number of non-essential buildings within the airport boundary.

As is characteristic of our sceneries, the field has been laid out accurately including all seven runways and one of the most intricate networks of taxiways in existence today. The runways are positioned to exactly match the location reported in official navigation charts and documentation enabling Cat III instrument approaches to be completed as published. Replacement ground textures were customized to blend as smoothly as possible with the surrounding terrain for each of four seasons and painstakingly fitted to the accurately positioned runways. The taxiway network was carefully laid out to match the underlying terrain. Each taxiway/taxiway and taxiway/runway intersection is clearly signaled and all major intersections are fitted with runway hold-short warning lights and on-ground signage.

Design Considerations:

The old American Eagle terminal located north of terminal A is not included. All American Airlines regional affiliates now operate from terminal B. For this reason, the old satellite terminal was considered unessential and obsolete.

No general aviation facilities are available. In real life, the general aviation ramp is located south of terminal D. While the ramp and a few GA parking spots are included in the AI mapping file, the GA terminal was also considered unessential and consequently left out. As most GA pilots and operators do in real-life, you may want to consider Dallas’ and Fort Worth’s downtown airports. We invite you to explore our Dallas Love Field scenery which was recently updated and optimized (essentially rebuilt from scratch) to match the quality and performance of our DFW scenery.

Features

  • Custom-made, optimized Gmax models of the entire facility including five terminals, the elevated inter-terminal tram, three air traffic control towers, and all significant aircraft maintenance and cargo facilities within the field’s boundary
  • Custom-made, high-resolution textures for all Gmax generated models including transparency effects
  • Custom-made, high-resolution photo real ground textures carefully blended with the surrounding terrain
  • Accurate runway and taxiway layout, including detailed markings and signs
  • Realistic taxiway and ramp markings and ramp illumination effects
  • Three levels of scenery complexity and detail:
    • NORMAL complexity includes terrain texturing, autogen vegetation, airport layout with taxiway signs and basic navigation equipment models (actual localizer and glide slope radio signals are available regardless of the scenery complexity setting), most buildings within the field’s boundaries including the terminals, the air traffic control towers and cargo and maintenance facilities
    • VERY DENSE complexity adds detailed instrument approach lighting system models, animated runway intersection lighting and static ramp vehicles (optional)
    • EXTREMELY DENSE complexity ads infield trees (optional)
  • Advanced, custom-made AI mapping file including realistic gate and parking spot layout and airline gate assignments. A basic AI mapping file without gate assignments is also available as an option*

* AI parking spots were fitted to accommodate specific aircraft models (including default MSFS aircraft) and we cannot guarantee that they will accommodate your favorite AI models. Customization and tweaking of the AI mapping file will most likely be necessary. Most gates were assigned to airlines operating at KDFW in the most accurate configuration possible based on information available to the public. Parking spot specs and gate assignments are available in the enclosed documentation.

Software Compatibility:

FS2004 and Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 (All versions)

Hardware Requirements:

BluePrint sceneries are designed to work properly in the average computer at the time of each release. For optimum performance while taking advantage of most scenery features we suggest the following hardware configuration:

  • Intel Core Quad CPU or better (Q9300 @ 4 x 2.50 GHz fully tested)
  • 4 GB RAM (fully tested)
  • nVidia 8000 series video processor with 256-bit memory interface and 512 MB dedicated video memory or better (nVidia GeForce 8800 GT fully tested). nVidia 9000 series video processor and 1 GB dedicated memory may be required for best performance when using the EXTREMELY_DENSE scenery complexity setting (nVidia GeForce 9800 GT fully tested)

AVIAJAM - BUDAPEST LANDMARKS MSFS
Alexei
It's amazing! The big city looks really great. I love the bridges with their night lighting. The big church is nice. Your other works (Beijing, Bangkok, Shenzhen, St. Petersburg, etc.) are also very good! Keep up the good work.
MODEL INSTRUMENTS - KAI TAK 1998 THE LAST DAYS ARE BACK MSFS
Angel
Very nice addition. I really missed this classic airport. I had to rename the addon folders so that they are loaded after Samscene3D Hong Kong scenery exclusion file as suggested by the author in the documentation. In my case I had wrong coastline shapes around the runway, missing airport parts but also road traffic on the apron. All those things are created by Samscene3D exclusion file, which is anyway needed. Renaming the two folders and adding a "z" at the start of the folder names fixed the issue. Both scenery addons work together like a charm.
JUSTSIM - HELSINKI-VANTAA AIRPORT - X-PLANE 11
Nicola
It's pretty good. I bought the Helsinki Metropolitan VFR Scenery V3 XP from another site, and Vantaa isn't represented there, so this filled the gap nicely. The apron's concrete is randomly oilstained and there does seem to be some PBR on the tarmac areas as well as signage, and night lighting fits well with the Helsinki scenery. Still at the early stage of exploring Vantaa but so far it's a worthy buy.

Muy bueno !! gracias por el trabajo ! Very good !! thanks for the work!
BRSIMDESIGNS - DEBONAIR 35 - MSFS
Ivy
The plane is wonderful, I've been flying for hours but there are things I miss like a GTN750 and a way to save my preferences from the artificial horizon, overall it has a great future!
BRSIMDESIGNS - DEBONAIR 35 - MSFS
Steven
I bought the latest version on 9-25 after several issues had been sorted out and must say it's already my favorite GA single or one of them - looks good, flies nicely, has that classic old plane look and smell and (major bonus) stays straight on the centerline after landing rollout unlike other payware singles. A great purchase, hopefully talented painters will create some gorgeous old 1960s/1970s liveries for this plane. And hopefully this talented developer will make us a V tail ASAP (or a Piper Comanche...or something else old and classy).

A must have for any bush flyers! This airport is a great addition to the sim and at a very low price. It has 5500 feet of gravel ready for your aircraft.
PEARL SIMULATIONS 2 - PHTO - HILO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Enrique
This airport is okay but the navaids do not work with MSFS. There are no SID, STAR, APPR, NAVAIDS available for departure and arrivals. It seems that it is not compatible with MSFS SU5+ It is very unfortunate.

Very nice scenery plus airport aswell so well done to the scenery team on a fantastic airport package very happy with this 5 stars;) :)
YSIM - SUBSONEX JSX-2 MSFS
Denis
Everything good except the fact that LED, Radio and MGL EFID (MFD) are too bright for evening and night operations. Also I didn't find a way to make them less bright. For me this is a no-go because it is really hard to use. I find flight model moderately good, it differs from what people say about aircraft in the web but it really close in my opinion. The systems are really good, but lacks fuel shutoff. Also copy of real POH in addition to small guides and checklists would be helpful, because they don't cover things like trim control for take off, performance data and curves and so on. side note: The autopilot for that MGL systems do exists and it working in Ysim JSX-2 but it do not have some buttons in MFD for that. I think they will be added later. For now Autopilot can be engaged with any external controller, such as MSFS_MCA. I really wish brightness for instruments, including engine LED's and landing gear LED's will be fixed.
