It depends on the visual model. With Prosim737, you have a flight/visual model with no 3D cockpit model, so the cockpit view (or virtual cockpit in P3D) is empty.

I use Prepar3D as a simulator and that's it.!

Hello OP,

As a long time Xplane user I switched over to MSFS. Its still a work in progress but I don’t regret switching to Prosim and MSFS2020. Even with minor issues on my end, once airborne the sim works pretty darn good with great visuals out the front window. Because I’m using 4K televisions my left and right visuals are stretched but not the end of the world.

Here’s a shot out of the front window

Your setup looks great.
I have three projectors, but I have been wondering about switching to three 75 inch 4K HDR TV instead. Mostly due picture clarity and brightness on TVs. (And night flying where you don't get those bright overlaping sectors) I must do re-calibrating with the projectors from time to time. I believe the projectors move sometimes.. or the lamp does..
Have anyone gone from three projector setup to TV? Any suggestion?

First off thank you for your kind words. I personally like the image quality on projectors at times over televisions screens. Mainly because I feel as though television images tend to be too sharp and crisp at times. Just my opinion.

I only know of one individual who switched from projectors to televisions. There are a few major draw backs if you did switch in my opinion.

Cons:
- Depth perception isn’t as good as projection
- the lack vertical coverage when looking outside is limited
- bezels aren’t pleasant to look at

All in all I wish you luck with your decision on flight sim.

If these are TV's, you have taken the pictures in a very clever way because I can't see any bezels. ;)

Lol that’s the idea is to not make them visible. Here is the bezel 😉.

I would say that either the colour of the Bezel is White or Silver (Chrome) or the Bezel has been removed completely.
Kind Regards

Bernie.
