May be a good idea to return internal reflections to a would-be-latest 2010 client. Not critical, "nice to have". Vostok is probably the only vessel to use it, but Vostok is sufficiently popular addon . If no, I can simply document recomendation to downgrade client version for just Vostok.I can publish a new version of the Client for Orbiter 2010 with the cockpit reflections re-enabled. Also, have you noticed the surface elevation checkbox in the visual options. It will make the earth a flat sphere. As for the O2016 I try to find some ways to get the reflection camera issues sorted out for the interior and exterior reflections. It would be nice to have a better vessel configuration file interface since the amount of data will likely increase a lot.
My addons are "reasonably intense" when it comes to setting up client, so I always document detailed instructions. For pre-flattening 2016 clients, disabling surface elevation was an absolute requirement - otherwise launchpads did not stand level, and rockets could not launch from them, period. Flattening allowed to restore 3D terrain for other things - like landings, which already looks better than 2010 (and will become even better when I restore "sticking to the ground").
And my vessel configs are already quite filled - with my own stuff. Even though all vessels have DLLs, a lot of things are configured in cfg rather than hard-coded in the dll. So adding 2016-style TDPs should not be that hard... It is just so many vessels to update
