    *sigh*
    So I've been trying to move to X-Plane 11, but there are just some things that still makes me want to switch back to P3D, namely ATC (in4b use Vatsim. IVAO, etc.), AI traffic, weather engine.
    Whereas it's great that XP has began to get some high quality addons, I'm afraid it still quite a few steps behind P3D...

    I don't want to go back to P3D, but I might have to...

    No harm in using both at the same time :)

    Plus, you can make X-Plane look as good as you want to for entirely free of charge—take a look at W2XP and Ortho4XP. Many airport sceneries on the x-plane.org forums are also payware-quality, but entirely free.

    The only thing which you might have to pay for is disk drive space

    No, there can only be one!
    Using two is very expensive.

    Since you are touching the scenery, I also have some complains with it. Whereas there are a tons of amazing high quality freeware airports for X-Plane 11, but Ortho4XP... It can look amazing, but here comes but.
    Ortho4XP coverage in my area is horrible, be it Google Maps or Bing. Adjacent tiles are all of different quality and colour. Also, no seasons, unless the satellite photo was taken during winter.
    And as you mentioned, it takes a lot of space. Downloading entire Europe would be suicidal... Unless it would be something like ZL11.
    Speaking of ZL11, do you know if it's still a decent quality?
