Because the iris adjusts automatically, something it can't do on a 14 inch high screen.
There's possibly three feet from the top of your aircraft's screen to the bottom edge of the panel
Yes, Rob, that's what I'm saying. The screen in FS2020 does not simulate what happens in a plane.
To be realistic, it should simulate reality, and so the instruments on the screen should appear the same brightness as they would in a real plane.
What we get in FS2020 emulates what a camera would see in a plane, which is that the panel is much less bright than the outside view.
If it were to emulate what our eyes would see in a plane, the instruments would appear pretty much as bright as outside.
Because we're looking at a much smaller view (a screen), then our eyes can't adapt in the way they would in a plane, and so the simulation should take account of that, and present a much brighter representation of internal instruments.
