Of course, you need to have reflections active. Check the D3D9 options on Orbiter Launchpad.
I'm actually talking about sunlight reflections, not actual environment reflections (those work great). I have already tried playing around with the Tuning with no success whatsoever. This is what everything looks like right now: https://www.dropbox.com/s/342as8a4oq...tions.jpg?dl=0
From that angle and with the sun directly above, there should be sunlight reflections on the payload bay radiator panels.

My best advice it to create test materials.

Something like this

but with a values ranging from black to white instead of just black/white squares.

That will show what value ranges give the effect you need.

Hello,

some words for you kuddel to thank you for the D3D9 XPready version you made some months ago, that i tried for the first time last week, giving to me the possibility to see how D3D9 actually works with nightlights.

I'll try to complete my work on that subject including now - and it was necessary - the informations taken from the client to.

Thank you again

.

Did you remember to activate the D3D9 module in the 'Modules' tab -> Graphics engines -> check D3D9Client checkbox?

Also make sure that you have the correct DirectX runtimes installed. There is a link on Jarmo's D3D9Client download page.
