not really sure what you are asking.

What I see are shaders that are givng off light. If you mean you need more light, then add light entities - Light emmitting shaders usually dont give off enough light by themselves to light a room. If you mean "why are the shaders making light?" - thast the answer - they are light emitting shaders. Many shaders that are light emmitters also have a corrisponding shader that has the same texture but doesnt give off light. You can use these to look like lights, but then only use the entity lights that you want to presisly light an area.

i once saw someone who created light effects in his map ONLY by using the light emmission from the shaders (which he 'slightly' increased). it looked very nice and realistic. however, the map seems compiled correclty, so adding light entities should fix it :)
