KCVG Definitive was released in early July and since then Skyline Simulations have been releasing sporadic previews of re-worked buildings in both X-Plane 11 and Prepar3D V4. Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Airport was Skyline's first in-house scenery release after splitting away from Icarus Simulations earlier this year, although the team have had a hand in some scenery conversions, such as Orbx's Broome (YBRM) and airports by LatinVFR (Sangster Int'l).

Developer Mac Ottlinger predicts that the update to Cincinnati could be out by early March of 2019. He says this is because they're striving for an even higher degree of realism than it is in it's current state.

Here's the feature list as it stands:
