here is the manual available: http://simheaven.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/simHeaven_X-Europe_Manual_v2.0.pdf
X-Europe is a scenery using XP11 objects (with LR permission) like the standard scenery, but the objects are not set on an autogen rule, they are set like they are in OpenStreetMap (OSM) data, which leads to a more realistic (some people say stunning) look and feel. See the results of different demo flights with older versions (beta and 1.0) on YouTube, even a comparison between various scenery configurations (Ortho4Xp, Standard, X-EUROPE):
This is the first step with default objects for Europe, the second step will bring localized objects for countries, so you will recognize where you fly if you simply look outside the window. It’s planned to make small country packages for e.g. Italy/Mediterranean area, France, the Alps, Denmark, GB, Norway and so on. The country packages will change objects in this country or region to typical objects.
