How to do Real Time Reflection?
Feature list fo Sci-Fi benchmark FPS game in Store, I see there is a "Real-Time Reflection" feature.
How can I do that in Esenthel, I can't find any clue for this

Wasn't this a setting on the material of the object? Reflectivity I think it was.

No, material reflectivity is not realtime. It is just how much reflection of material for 3d object, in scifi demo you can see the floor reflects everything, wall, objects, lights, rotating fan on the roof, bullet tracer from gun, just download it and check

This reflectiob looks sort of screen space reflection, I just dont know how to do the same

I don't work with this engine, so don't take this as direct suggestions of the engine capabilities, just saying that based on my experience, next to SSR, cube maps or render to texture if the engine supports it (deferred renders normally don't), are other (and older) ways to do mirrors, unless you work with a raytracing capable engine but is not the case with this one, for now.

Ive achieved it by using Water c++ object (ocean) and tweaking its material parameters.

It would be time consuming and not enough donations.
