What is DSFbuilder?

Distribution Scenery Format Builder

Is a Manager and helper on the construction process of the Mesh Terrain (*.dsf) generated by the Meshtool program for X-plane, 10 and 11 versions. The Meshtool for your time is a development tool available for free by Laminar Research X-Plane, which through the command line in the DOS prompt is able to compile files using existing database in DEM (Digital Elevation Model), in format *.hgt, * .tif , combined with the format *. XES (Land Classification or Landclass).
To use the Meshtool by the traditional way is very boring. Enter repetitive commands line in DOS prompt, instructing the PC to read and interpret data from digital models of terrain (hgt or tif) combined with terrain classification model, in addition to submitting a script (SCP.txt) programmed by the user according to your need in the construction of the scenery. Manually is a dull task, which usually raises obvious typing errors. The DSFbuilder is a facilitator of this process, ideal for those who want to generate mesh terrain sceneries in X-Plane quickly and quite comfortable, without extensive typing command lines in the case of building large areas.

What makes DSFbuilder?

Automates the process of creating the repetitive tasks of the Meshtool command creating DSF format files (Distribution Scenery File), organizing them geographically in the respective folders equal in X-Plane 10 and 11. Assists in editing of the script, which in DSFbuilder is already a preset editable named SCP.txt file that can be edited through a window in the DSFbuilder, allowing to modify and save according to the needs of the developer. The DSFbuilder also creates HGT.log and XES.log files, which are HGT data files that are with problems at the source. For example, if the user has 100 *.hgt files compiling and one of them contains error, the DSFbuilder will report points to be patched and recompiled in isolation.

What you need to do?

It is known that before generating a mesh literally speaking you must acquire all necessary data and put together a well-written, well calculated Dataset and well dimensioned, downloadable from reliable sources with guarantee that the necessary files are free of errors.
The first step, after the delimitation of the area chosen for the creation of the scenario is to get the necessary files with the extension *. xes (land classification), free at the website X-Plane Developer, also the SRTM files, in the form of HGT, or extension GeoTif, which you can download free from various websites of satellite data from the Internet, which will be listed later in this document. In addition to the formats listed in this paragraph are required *.shp format file (shapefile) that will control and delimit the coastline, the bodies of water like oceans, rivers, lakes, roads, kind of vegetation etc.

What the DFSbuilder does not

  • Does not increase or decrease with precision terrain mesh resolutions. The resolution is achieved in external program. (Later in this tutorial there is a good example)
  • Does not provide files XES, HGT or SHP to the user. Only indicates where to get them.
  • Does not create airport areas flattens or any other area flatten on the scenery. Shows in a tutorial an option how to make.
  • does not compile photo realistic scenarios.

Technical Requirements

  • Original copy of X-Plane 10 or 11
  • Windows 7 or later version installed
  • Computer with at least 8 GB of RAM and processor i5

Knowledge of user requirements

  • Know how to use the tools available for X-Plane SDK;
  • Basic knowledge of creating files and directories in Windows;
  • Know edit in Notepad;
  • Assemble correctly the database where the DSFbuilder will read the HGT files, XES and SHP edited files.
  • Understanding of digital terrain model and extracting the same data from websites download managers of satellite data.
  • Know the organizational structure of the X-Plane and the priority of how they work.
  • Know how Meshtool work.

Important notice

The developer does not support questions of basic knowledge of Windows, knowledge of the Meshtool, X-Plane 11 or 10 Software Development Kit (SDK) and knowledge of satellite data acquisition required to build the mesh terrain. If you do not fit within these knowledge requirements, we advise you not to buy the DSFbuilder, or otherwise look before reading about these essential requirements of knowledge in website.

FSXCENERY - KSYR SYRACUSE HANCOCK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Andrew
First of all, I would like to thank the developer for the Syracuse Hancock Airport. I feel deeply connected to Syracuse and finger lakes area, so I'm glad I can make few flights to and from this airport. Howev-
er. Just like one of the pilots before me, I think, the price for the quality if too much. I know, the airport has been released some years back, but I had to spend another 5-6 hours working on afcad file (adjusting gates, adding missing airbridges, hazard lights and also apron lights, as these do not show in my sim for some reason). I visited Hancock airport in late Autumn of 2019 during snow blizzards so I was hoping, come winter, I will be able to do some nice winter flights only to discover, that the ground textures are for summer time only! So in order to do winter flights, I had to remove some of the original files and work on landclass from scratch. Not something I was expecting to do after paying for the airport. So, all in all, I took one star for afcad I had to adjust, one for land class I had to do myself and one for lack of winter textures.
PREALSOFT - HD CITIES VIENNA FSX P3D
Douglas
This is a follow up on Vienna and how the developer responded. Although a fix was attempted to make this airport right the developer ran into some issues that were beyond their control, so they did the best they could. The developer was very apologetic and made me the customer a generous gesture, they are not bad guys they just ran into an issue beyond their control. I have almost every one of their sceneries and I can tell you they are not bad. As far as Vienna goes what they offer is still much better than default, so give these guys support, they all work hard. The rating given is for the great response from Prealsoft
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D
Bernhard
This is a very nice scenery and necessary for the Caribean to fly. Even if this is published as "P3Dv4" there is a possibility to get this into P3Dv5 with the help of the developer - update for the config-tool needed and a patch. This all is handled in less than 10 hours. Thumbs up !
HUEYTUNING - PAF890SAR FSX P3D
Simon
This is a very short review of the excellent PAF890SAR repaint. I tried the paint kit by myself, but I wasted 2 weeks of time and at least 60 hours searching for any parts and could not find them. Finally, I gave it up. Designing a white repaint is anyway the hardest task. This pay ware repaint is worlds better than all the default and freeware repaints ever made for the Milviz Huey Uh-1h. I’ve made the effort and was comparing it with MILVIZ default USAF Rescue repaint. Here are just a few details that shows the skills of the artist. 1. The yellow stripe with the registration 66890 and the two blue stripes are designed very exactly around the tail fin. On the default USAF Rescue repaint, the black stripe at the tail fin was only mirrored and looks very loveless. 2.Th-
e PAF890SAR repaint is the only repaint where the landing skids are colored in another separate black tone. 3. It is also very striking that the antenna on the roof is painted in white. 4. The yellow ribbon and every single letter from the vertical lettering has been perfectly adapted to the shape of the body, (that’s a masterpiece) 5-
. Additional maintenance levels have been incorporated with lovely details. 6.The Rescue Angel and the Huey 2 stickers are razor sharp even in highest zoom level. I’m definitely thrilled with the great implementation of this Philippine Air Force rescue helicopter. I will definitely buy the other two repaints. The price may seem a bit expensive at first glance, but hey, try the paint kit yourself and you will quickly realize this PAF890SAR repaint is a masterpiece No doubt, five stars!
PREALSOFT - HD CITIES VIENNA FSX P3D
Douglas
Buyer Beware this scenery has problems and the developer states there is "No Fix" on their end for this. The color of the land class is very washed out and the ground, (land class) loads as you fly directly in front of your plane; it is very annoying and looks and performs bad. How he is allowed to continue to sale this is beyond me!

Very nice airport and surroundings.I think it will need a little more lighting.
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D
Ramon
Being a Concorde fan, Barbados is a MUST HAVE scenery. I had been using a freeware version for years, and I have to admit I was quite happy with it so, the obvious question is, is it worth paying for the update? The developer really deserves the price charged. Barbados is a small airport, but this version is incredibly rich in details. Its quality is second to none, so if you like to invest in high quality sceneries there is no doubt your money will be well invested. As I mentioned, I am Concorde fan and currently I only fly Concorde-X by FSLabs, which requires P3Dv3. At fist, the only surface shown was the runway and there was grass were taxiways and the terminal platform where supposed to be. I contacted the developer, exchanged a couple of emails and in less than 24 hours we solved the problem. In my case what solved the problem was leaving the default directory for the installation (the counter-intuiti-
ve "Prepar3D v4 Add-ons") for the Config tool to work correctly. Otherwise, the "patch" to convert the default P3Dv4 scenery into a P3Dv3 compatible did not work and the problem described before showed. Now that my problem is solved I am a super-happy pilot flying my Concorde in and out Barbados :-)
AFLOSIM - CLUJ-NAPOCA AIRPORT FSX P3D

Since i flew to Romania last year in real life i really love the country! And i really enjoy the Addons from Aflosim such as Cluj and Bucharest. Very great detail and athmosphere and a very good pricing!!!! I would love to see Timisoara soon!!
LATINVFR - SAN DIEGO KSAN V2 FSX FSXSE
Leo
This is my second LatinVFR scenery and is completely awsome. I love how accurate is the depiction of this airport and it come with downtown San Diego too, the textures used are incredible with a good attention to details. It comes with a scenery configurator to change some elememts of the scenery like add/remove static objects, add/remove downtown San Diego and more. The FPS dont drop a all or maybe just a little bit and it runs smooth with no problem at all. Im surprise by the great performance it has on my simple HP laptop. The night textures inside the airport are really good but the night textures of the city are interesting because it doesnt look as illuminated as the default FSX/P3D textures but looks more realistic and I like it. Overall this scenery is a great scenery for KSAN and worth every penny. 100% recommended.
