Getting reflection without an environment?

I've constantly tried and tried again, I want to simulate reflection without using an environment but I can't figure out how. I'm Using Cinema 4D R16. Any advice?

Use the material>environment channel.

Ohh, is that what that does? Simulates an environment for the material?

Yep, it essentially maps the texture to a virtual sphere and then reflects it back on the object. Much faster than real reflections.
