  1. Unfortunately not, if the server requires pure textures.
  2. I did this, but it only created more of the same unit. I think I've figured it out now though. After creating units as described above, it is possible to change the unit category and type (KATEGORIE & TYP in the above image). I was not aware of this until watching an unrelated YouTube video. So the proper way to create working Searchlights: 1. Add a new ground unit and place it on the map. Under category, choose air defence, and under type choose Scheinwerfer. 2. Click the plus or right arrow as circled in the above image. There will now be two Scheinwerfer units. 3. For this second Scheinwerfer unit, leave category as air defence, but change the type to Maschinensatz. 4. Make sure the two units are close to each other by zooming way in on them in the map. I keep them almost touching, but this may not be necessary. This produces a functioning Searchlight consisting of two different units within the same group.
  3. Thanks for the reply. Can you please tell me how I add different unit types to create a group? I created a Searchlight and a generator and put them right beside each other, but this didn't work. How do I make them into a group? Thanks.
  4. I'm struggling with this too, I had been placing generators near the Searchlights, but only one of each. I will try again with three gens. To create a group, do I need to do anything special? Or just place the units close to each other? Neither the Searchlight nor the generator seems to have the "link unit" option. Thanks!
  5. Well that sounds perfect actually! Those are pretty much exactly the same times I play, and I am also on Eastern time. What would I need to do to sign up? Just go to the discord? Thanks!
  6. This is pretty much how I live my life Excellent! You are definitely smarter than me! Are you sure it's necessary though? Like I said, my power service has been disabled for some time with no discernable effects. Maybe just try it with it off for a bit and see how it goes.
  7. Ha, as I just wrote in the original thread, I've been doing this for the past three months or so with no ill or even observable effects. When I'm not gaming my computer is quiet and cool, using very little power. The power plans I set in Windows still seem to be working, there's just no throttling or stuttering when at high usage. I can't explain it but it works. I expect it has something to do with how DCS deals with power management or something like that because it doesn't happen in any other game I play. Anyways, if you are experiencing regular stuttering every second or two like I was, I suggest giving this a try to see what effect it has. It's a very easy change to undo if you have any issues. Its as simple as typing services.msc in the Windows search bar, find the service called "power", and set it to disabled. I think you have to be in safe mode to do this, so I don't think a batch file will work, unless it includes a reboot command. It's been a few months since I did it though, so feel free to give it a try and see!
  8. There's a couple things wrong here: 1. If you open Afterburner, Riva tuner, etc and then close it before gaming, you will not be overclocking anymore. These programs need to be running to work. 2. Killing the power service does not result in the CPU, GPU, etc running at full power all the time. When I'm not gaming my computer is quiet and cool, using very little power. The power plans I set in Windows still seem to be working, there's just no throttling or stuttering when at high usage. If you are experiencing regular stuttering every second or two like I was, I suggest giving this a try to see what effect it has. It's a very easy change to undo if you have any issues. Good luck!
  9. Thanks but it was @Flappie and @Rachmaninoff who figured it out, I was just using their info. Glad you got it figured out though, hopefully you managed to do it in less time than it took me!
  10. Hi there, Can I ask what time zone you're in? Also when do you folks usually fly? Thanks!

    Hi there, Is your squadron still active? I am looking for a Mosquito squadron that's fairly relaxed. Thanks!
  12. Hi I've joined this server a few times now with mixed results. The amount of fun I have seems directly proportional to the number of people using SRS. Without the voice calls and chatter it is first of all extremely difficult to find bandits, even when there's 50+ people in the server. So far, out of the 7-8 times I've joined this server, only once was there people actively talking, calling out bandits and tallies, planning coordinated attacks, etc (which was super fun, one of my best experiences in DCS so far). Half the time I don't even get a response when asking for radio check though. So I was just wondering, are most people on the server not using comms? Or maybe discord is the preferred comms method? I'm just wondering why it's so quiet most of the time. If you don't use comms, what are your methods for finding other planes to shoot down? Asking genuinely, no snark intended. Thanks!
  13. Will the procedure in Fri13's post from last February still work?
  14. Sorry, I have another question... Does this affect all smoke, or only the smoke from the CBU and minigun?
