So I want the radiator panels of the shuttle to reflect with this dark blue color at a high angle and this more neutral white color at low angles. How can I accomplish this with D3D9Client R2? I had this working in an earlier beta of R2 before Felix's reflection map fix was incorporated.

It would change color differently, depending on what was being reflected, water, clouds, land or space. I would think.

True, but right now there's just a very small change between high angles and low angles of reflection. In reality, it should change to very light color at low angles when it is reflecting something dark, like space. This video of the STS-133 R-BAR Pitch Maneuver (RPM) shows the effect very well as the observer position stationary (ISS Lab camera) while the orbiter rotates changing the reflection angle:

Evening folks; at some point soon, I will need to take the my server properly offline for a short while, which will impact your access to the SVN service on it. Would there be a date or time when this would be especially inconvenient?

Must be blinding, when it reflects the sun.

Nearly so: https://spaceflight.nasa.gov/gallery...2003e13227.jpg

Here's the STS-122 RPM, note the high specular reflection level on the radiator panels:

Whenever it is convenient for you is the best time
