Original contemporary and religious songs and also piano hymn arrangements.

in Piano

Hi, I'm Doreen -
Professional background: not new to musescore - use it to demonstrate music fundamentals class at community college where I teach currently. Have taught about 11 years. 
Hobby: Play for 2 churches in town, been playing some of my own hymn arrangements and some of my mothers.  I have been playing piano since about age 7.  I remember mom gave me two choices then,  
"I will buy a really, REALLY expensive harp or you can learn to play the piano since we already have one but if I buy a harp you WILL PRACTICE!" I went with piano, gee less pressure...?  
Published: Skyland The Mars Colony, a fiction novel based on a twenty year attempt to start a human colony the right way, recycling, all cultures welcome. I would love to have music published as well. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Hope you enjoy my offerings.  I'm already enjoying listening to yours...

How do I make the "bass line" in this transcription easier to read?

in Piano

The transcription in question is here: https://musescore.com/user/30856753/scores/5558378

It is a transcription (well, a reduction, really) of one of my favourite tunes from a video game, Chrono Trigger. The original can be listened to, among others, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2r1iesThvYg

I know that I have the bass line right, except for the glissandos which can just not be reproduced on piano. And that includes staccatos and timings.

The problem is that in a few places, for instance, I have a dot below the note indicating a staccato and a dot next to the note telling that the note should be extended by half the duration...

Since I have no formal musical training, I have done what I could here, but I would like to hear from you all "in the know" as to how the bass line should really be written here. Since I know the piece by heart, my opinion is worthless...
