Can anyone explain to me how to make a good chrome shader. The chrome, in my case, will look like shiny metal. I will appreciate links to pre-made shaders but I would prefer to have an explanation on how to make one.
I'm not a geek. I'm a nerd.

metal and chrome is less about the shader and more about the environment. You will never get nice metal until you have a nice environment to reflect. So find an envmap and then apply that and re-try and see how it goes. Turning reflection all the way down to start with and then pulling it back up is a good way to go about it.
