The new max5 Standard Skylight System simulates the effect of scene illuminated by daylight. However it doesn’t work with Shiny Object it turn the shiny object into matte surface also there is no control on the shadow it cast.
So do u know how to preserve shinness of the model using skylight system.

Come on. Think a bit before you post.
What is a highlight? A mirror-like reflection of a lightsource.
A skylight casts light from everywhere. It can not generate a highlight thus. Add a standard lightsource that only affects the specular component of a material and you will get a highlight.
