HasSpotlight=yes
on Yuris revenge.
Also how do i add an alarm to alert me when enemy approaches my base and is caught in the spotlight

To change the movement of the spotlight from an ellipse to a circle change SpotlightMovementRadius= from 1000 to 0

For the alarm you can attach a dummy weapon to the spotlight building, make it cause no damage but use an alarm sound when fired.

SpotlightMovementRadius is a tag in the [General] section at the top of the rules ini. You dont use it on individual building, it's one setting that effects all spotlights in the game.
