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. If the user has no knowledge is required he visit the development of X-Plane to obtain knowledge essential. https://developer.x-plane.com/.

Customer Reviews
PROJECT MAX - CYZF YELLOWKNIFE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
David
A well done scenery and worth the purchase especially at this price point. It's nice to see northern Canadian airports getting some attention.
SWISSMILSIM - DE HAVILLAND VAMPIRE DH-100 MSFS
Chuck
I would like to modify my previous review. The plane honestly deserves five stars. I did not mean to suggest that it needed to be altered in order to function correctly. I was apparently the only one who had the gear problem and I fixed it with help from the good people at SwissMilSim.
BIJAN HABASHI - 4 SEASON PACK V7.2 - MSFS
Michael
The trees look incredible, and autochanging seasons is great. The changes to the trees in the summer are subtle but make the sim so much better. I wish I had purchased this sooner.
BIJAN HABASHI - PROJECT: ISLANDS, SUNKEN BOATS, - MSFS
Michael
Amazing product, keep up the great work! I look forward to future updates.
FSIPANEL - FSIPANEL 2020 STANDARD EDITION MSFS
Jerry
Program does what it says it's going to do, easily and without too much fuss. Would be 5 stars except I feel the price is too high. Advanced edition offered nothing I was interested in so I opted for the Standard version and don't regret the purchase (except for price.) You can use any of the included default aircraft in any flavor of Microsoft Flight Simulator, and also add most any 3rd party aircraft (SWS Kodiak, JF Turbo Arrows, Carenados, PMDG, etc.) Not sure about helicopters as I'm not interested in rotary wings but I'm sure it's mentioned somewhere. Loa-
d a plane onto a runway, turn on the flight director and within a minute you can setup an approach to fly over and over again. Start downwind one time then change the approach to vectors, left or right traffic. Change altitudes, weather, wind. Developer has numerous videos on YouTube.

PRETTY GOOD, BEST WEATHER ENGINE FOR FLIGHT SIMULATION EVER!
AREZONE-AVIATION SOUNDSTUDIOS - CESSNA 170B HQ-SOUNDSET MSFS
Jan
Sounds in the soundset make the cessna 170 a more enjoyable plane to fly. The sounds are better than the stock sounds. This product is not the easiest to install but it works as described. The sounds did not install to the tundra version, and i had to change some lines in the layout file to make them work on that version of the plane. There is some clipping in the sounds while flying. The sounds in this package are nice and improve the C170, but it hope the issues will be adressed in a update.
JUSTSIM - HANNOVER AIRPORT EDDV MSFS
Kim-Marvin
Normal JustSim Scenery, nothing special about it but way better than default.
CAPTAIN SIM - 777 CAPTAIN II - (777-200) BASE PACK P3D4

I'm surprised by the Number of Researches I've done for Months on this Plane. Travelling Forums and Reading Reports posted by people who own this product 777 Captain || for P3DV4. So i Finally Decided to Try it out for Myself and i Must Say!! (The Real Honest Truth Of course!! ✋) This plane is So Amazing and Fun to Fly!! It's very FPS friendly on My Low End PC ( I get 23-32 in VC and 27-38 in External View; Even at Heavy Airports Like FB KSFO) And i Currently haven't Found One Single issue!! Or Complaint!! -
Take-off and Landing the plane is very Realistic! I'm Using P3D 4.5 HF3 on Laptop. There are even ways you can make it compatible with P3DV5 on CS Forum! And Plenty of liveries!! A-
nd it's easy and simple to master the technique's of the Aircraft if you are someone like me who doesn't like to understand that complex stuff like PMDG that's Way too Expensive. When you can save alot more! And the best part!! The plane is more cheaper on Simmarket compared to the CS Store! This definitely gives you the advantage to save some Money. A Must have Plane for sure! Alongside With a Full Beautiful interior Passenger Cabin!! Fantastic to Tour the Cabin During Cruise When AutoPilot is Engaged of course! The Cabin Animations are mind-blowing!! -
Controlling The Passenger Seats And Converting Them into Beds just Wowed Me!! Not just that!! You can control the passenger Window shafts, Arm rest Table's On All Seats! (Business and Economy), And Open and Close Doors to Mysterious Places on the Plane LOL! Almost Feels like I am inside a Real Triple 7 in Real Life! I Love this plane so much! The Cockpit is well detailed Too! I have Spent so many hours with it and completed my first TEN Flights with it. No Bugs, No Errors and I'm Truly Pleased!! Sim FPS remains smoothly positive at the start of Load up and throughout the entire flight!! And Some tips and tricks to boost up FPS even At Greater level are available on the CS Forum too! I Also Have the -300ER and -Freighter Expansion's Installed and they work and fly Perfectly as I Expected!! Better get back to Business!! A Must Have Plane for Sure!! 1000 Stars!! Grea-

FLY 2 HIGH - MIYAZAKI BOUGAINVILLEA AIRPORT MSFS
Cavin
All is good except the night. I personally find the terminal look as if it has no windows, and given the interior of the terminals are not as well developed. the overall night scenery is somewhat disappointing.
