I'm no FPSC veteran, but I don't think what you're asking for is possible. In order for it to work, you'd need the player to be substansial instead of a floating camera--and if my observations are correct, FPSC can't do "real-time cutscenes" to make the model inside the mirror (or the movie, which would have to be static as movies go...) move along with the player, I don't see any way to do it.

Movies cant be played on world objects either as far as I am aware though you could use the story zone I guess to break into the game and display a mirror effect...come to think of it I guess you could do that anyway and fake a mirror image if you made up a scene showing player (a character in the level location as required) and record as movie - then when you get to the part in your level where you require the mirror effect to take place - call the movie in story zone....could work quite effectively and be a reasonably effective solution currently I would think.

If you dont use that method theres no other way at present to fake a miirror in FPSC. I have seen people using other engines actually build 2 versions of a level and place one below the other upside down to fake a mirrored level - but would not suggest doing that for mirrored levels - though it could work effectively with say some transparent divider between the two areas - Glass floor for example.

Trickery thinking

:plrcanbeseen:alttexture=1
:plrcannotbeseen:alttexture=0


you can also AIM the mirrors so that you can create the illusion of refection

:plrcanbeseen:setalphafade=100
:plrcannotbeseen:setalphafade=0
