Reflection Material

A Reflection Material is one of Rockstar's custom sections. In GTA San Andreas it is used to override vehicle reflection maps. The typical location in a SA vehicle dff section hierarchy is Clump > Geometry List > Geometry > Material List > Material > Extension > Reflection Material.

The Reflection Material is exclusive to San Andreas. To use a reflective material, the rendering pipeline that is responsible for rendering the object must support reflective materials. This is true by default for vehicles, but not for buildings. To hook reflection into the rendering pipeline, the pipeline extion for the geometries atomic needs to be changed.
