Dull looking paint

Recommended Posts

I'm repainting planes in FSX and can't get them to look shiny like the default aircraft look. It almost looks as if I took a bucket of paint and brushed the paint onto the side of the aircraft. It looks all dull and flat. How do I get the paint to look shiny? Kind of a wet paint or glossy look.

Assuming you are applying a repeating pattern to your models, try using subtle gradients instead of solid colors (i.e. red to slightly darker red), and also play with gloss highlights (although this is rather difficult with a repeating pattern).
