Set IOR >1 ;) (The higher, the brighter the reflection -> perfect mirror at 100000 IOR...
Which exporter do you use? And which Indigoversion?
If you use IndigoV 0.7.x, I'd say, you should use Blendigo!
If you use 0.6.x, you have to hand-edit the xml and increase the IOR value by your self...

Perfect sphere is easy too^^
Just create an icosphere (between 3-5 subdivs) and name it xyz.sphere
(I.E. Mirror.sphere)
As I don't know, if it should be in OB or in ME, I just rename both fields ;)

This sphere-primitive doesn't work with meshlight, how ever....
With the same trick, you also can add an infinite plane: just name it xyz.plane :D

Sorry, I didn't look in your signature :oops:

You should rename the "ME" field, since you want to rename the mesh name.
