I've done a lot of searching, I'm about 50% pleased with this product, I'm amazed at how much information is very dispersed even though the attempts to centralize it and the extremely long configs thread. I wished that A2A had stated up front in their product description that there was no automated way to install these (oh wait? That's a bad idea because you wouldn't sell any??? Gosh you're darn right I won't buy anything else now
I like the content and what it has to offer, I am just not pleased about how I have to go about this; while there are plenty of pre-made and community provided configs why not make a tool to have these included so that when I have a certain plane; the tool will update the config for that type of plane.
One suggestion that might greatly help improve the 3D lights products is a dedicated search for configs, the forum search picks up quite a bit (or nothing) even if I filter it only to the 3D lights forums. Maybe you don't like freeware, I understand that; then I will take my business elsewhere.
I am not new to flightsimming, I can edit configs; but why should I when there's simple solutions to this? (and less chance of user errors such as forgetting one letter or line of config). I understand an automated process could create problems and I know this has been mentioned a number of times over the years but you already have the resources to make this possible its no different than the default planes and many other products that already offer such a tool to add to the config. Adding a WYSIWYG "points" for lights would be nice but not necessary for pre-made configs.
