Thanks Michael. Shessi explained it perfectly. My intention is to add a 'sheen' to the aircraft. In some angles, light will still reflect off flat paint. You are right, they were not necessarily shiny. I only used the word shine, since that is what the setting is called in the MK-MDLC program.
I think aircraft in CFS2 look unreal without some light reflecting off the paint. Even in the reflection is very subtle.
