    What "glowly" light?

    There are a few types, the "light" entity is the most basic one, but the ones with the cones of light is a combo of light_spotlight and point_spot I think (Don't remember, can't open up hammer at the moment)

    Maybe provide a screenshot of what you specifically want.

    The entity you're looking for is either an env_sprite or a point_spotlight. env_sprites are practically the same thing, but point_spotlights will also have a beam of light emitting from them.
