Search light not working in mission editor

I have followed the two video below but they are either out of date or something has been removed form the editor.  I can no longer find "Unit AD Searchlight on", "Third Reich" does not show in the editor list anymore as a country, and when loaded from a template, it is white, not red or blue power.  Flak Search Light 32 is not in the unit search anymore, I saw SL******32 but I cannot get it to activate with a trigger when being used as a red country.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Trying to add spotlights to a mission on the channel map.  I have posted the two videos below to show how they were setting up triggers but cannot find any updated info on how to use them in the editor.  I know the videos below are a little older.

1) When creating a new mission, make sure 3rd Reich is assigned to a coalition. If you already have a mission, press swap/change coalitions and add it.

 

2) Make sure the date is set properly or disable historical filter

 

3) When setting up searchlights, make sure to create a group consisting of:

 

Searchlight

Maschinensatz 3X

 

Place the Maschinensatz close to the searchlight.

 

When it's night and an enemy airplane is flying close enough, the searchlight should come alive. The Trigger "AD Searchlight on/off" has been removed and is not needed anymore.

Thank you both for the help.  I have got the search lights working great now.  The only thing I hope to see in future updates is better lighting effect in the cockpit when lit up by the search lights.  After being painted by 3 or 4 of them in the Mosquito, I cannot see anything on my console.  The entire screen is almost white, and considering I only play in VR, it really kills the immersion.  Theoretically I should be able to use my instruments even if the canopy is lit up and I cannot see anything outside, but when the console and all instruments are completely white, you cannot tell up from down ect.....  I should be able to see my console without it being whited out.  Any threads on this or are the devs aware?  I will post a video on here later with what I am experiencing.
