Tons of map making questions for H5 ToE

Hello everyone, hope someone can help me with some of the questions that I have for making a cool map, so here it goes.

- How can I make it bright in the underground? I tried adding ambient light in tools -> map properties -> and here I created dungeon light. But its still super dark, so what I am doing wrong. Can someone set me up with a "how to create underground tutorial"?

- Also, I cannot go underground if I place one of those that leads underground, how do I make it work?

- Can I somehow copy a whole area from another map and paste it into a map? I am talking ALL in an area, all buildings, all everything.

- Quest huts:
1) How can I add an icon so that it does not display a white dot on the required to kill monster
2) I cannot make it work, I just have to revisit it and the quest is completed, for some reason it does not require me to kill the monsters I set in the quest hut options. ( I selected the monster that needs to be killed by coordinates, so it should be all fine, it detect it fine and found the monster).
3) How do I add an icon so that it does not display my hero as he was the one talking to me and giving me the quest?

- What happens if I place to graals on the map? Can I find the first one and then it resets the obelisks so that I can start searching for the second one? I want this so that multiple players can get the obelisk.

Click the properies of any static object and add point light. Set "Z" value over 1 to make it work in a bigger radius.

Here are example screens of what you may come to:

hmm

I added a point light but it only allows me to edit color and radius. None of those seems to make it more bright. My underground is simply extremely dark

Actually it seems that the light is "ok" but I do not have any underground paving. Its BLACK. How can I add "ground" so that there is something to walk on?

Edit: Alright I edited a map and found out what I need. The thing is that I found out that my underground is not "lowered". I tried to edit underground on a map but I did not sucessfully discover how to lower it so that I had "ground". Help please
