Microsoft Flight Simulator offers a gaming experience that is very close to reality. So that this impression can be created even more, a fan has now installed a wrecked ship in the in-game Suez Canal.
A current situation in Microsoft Flight Simulator
Since Tuesday, March 23, 2021, the container ship “Ever Given” was stuck in the Suez Canal. Attempts were made for days to free the aground freighter so that the blockade of the connection between the Red Sea and the Mediterranean, which is very important for maritime trade, can be lifted. Because no other ships could pass the freighter.
Meanwhile however, the ship could be exposed.
The news has dominated the news for days, as the situation brings with it extensive delays in deliveries of freight by sea and costs in the billions. These messages were particularly interesting for gamers because they were on the ship a load of new Playstation 5 consoles is located next to controllers, monitors, graphics cards and many other goods.
An airplane cannot become wedged, but it is still not easy to control. Not even in Flight Simulator. If you need help with this, you can find it at GameStar-Plus:

The situation around the cargo ship has now also found its way into Microsoft Flight Simulator. Fan Mat Velloso discovered an exciting video of the game. This shows a flight over virtual Egypt, showing a cargo ship that is stuck in the game’s Suez Canal. The video comes from a mod by the flight simulator fan donut_enforcement.
You download the modification on the website Flightsim.to down and then fly in the simulator along the almost 200-kilometer-long shipping canal in Egypt, then you see there a cargo ship lying across and so blocked the channel. With the many loaded containers, the ship looks very similar to the »Ever Given«, as you can see in the video:
