    Taburet Mesh XP East USA 2 For X-Plane

    This is my second review of a Mesh XP scenery from Taburet. If you happened to have read my previous review, which was for the British Isles, you will remember that it was highly rated by myself (even for those simmers who use X-Plane's default ground textures).

    Today though we are looking at another Taburet product, this time in the form of Mesh XP USA East 2. The package promises to enhance the mesh and landclass of its chosen area, whilst improving both roads and water bodies. In a nutshell, it means that every single lake, river, pond and marsh is represented in the package, and for Florida, that's important!

    Like before, this product is best used with a photographic overlay of the area, but as a user who prefers to use X-Plane's default textures, I thought I would see how it performs without.

    Taburet have split the Eastern USA into two separate products (1 and 2); a wise decision in my mind, as at just over 1 GB in size, it gives the user a choice of which areas they wish to fly over - plus it saves valuable hard drive resources. I have chosen the second in the series purely because I prefer this area to the first.

    The Package

    As with the previous Taburet UK package I reviewed, installing it is just a simple case of downloading the zipped folder, unzipping it and then dropping the Mesh_Usa_East_2 and MeshXP_Usa_East_2 folders into your X-Plane Custom Scenery directory (it couldn't be much simpler). The documentation is good, with the exception of the coverage area map, which is barely legible.

    ...one found on the internet.

    For those of you with a moving map, the one supplied will not present a problem. However, if you're relying on the supplied version, then I wouldn't really bother as it's not detailed enough.
